Titanfall and White Xbox One Consoles Rumored for ReleaseJon Ledford |
Looks like that Xbox One update we heard about might be coming sooner than we think. According to a new report from The Verge, the update is on track to arrive in March. That would mean improvements to the social connectivity and dashboard would be implemented just in time for Titanfall. As luck would have it, it sounds like Microsoft's plans around Titanfall don't end there either.
The Verge also reported a white-colored Xbox One is expected to come out sometime in October. If you recall, a similar model was given to Microsoft employees who worked on the Xbox prior to its release. Microsoft is also said to be experimenting with an Xbox One that runs without a disk drive. This "digital" Xbox One could coincide with a new, upcoming version of the system believed to have 1TB of storage. A Titanfall-oriented Xbox One system is also expected to debut with the game's release date of March 11.
Getting a new SKU of the Xbox One wouldn't be surprising given how many different variations of the Xbox 360 were released, but having a new themed model arrive so soon after launch is something we haven't seen before. It's actually a little surprising (and disappointing) that a specially designed Xbox One might be hitting the market this March. We're not going to hold our breath for the disc-less model, but for all intents and purposes, these other editions sound pretty feasible. Now we just have to wait and see if these reports pan out.
