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.

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

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