Xbox One 50hz option & controller patch shown in photos as March update previews begin

Friday, 28th February 2014 11:00 GMT By Dave Cook

Xbox One will give users the option of displaying their console in 50hz mode, which is Microsoft’s response to the UK’s TV ‘judder’ issue.

The problem comes from US televisions displaying in 60hz, rather than 50hz here in the UK. When running your TV set-top box through the 60hz Xbox One, the incompatibility causes a weird shake effect that has now been patched out in Microsoft’s incoming March update.

As tweeted by The Verge’s Tom Warren, the March update allows Xbox One users to display their console in 50hz.


Problem solved. There’s also a controller update:


We’ll have more on the Xbox One March update soon.

    There were also reports that Dolby Digital (5.1) is finally available on this update. I saw a tweet from someone that was chosen to preview the update. Can you please look up for confirmation for us? :)

    I’m not entirely sure what the controller update did.

    The Resume Games option is supposedly out of beta too.

    I hope the controller update will fix the controller connection issue I have been having since the December update it was working perfectly fine before it.
