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.
