New Xbox One Experience's Update in Preview Drops Known Issues to One

The New Xbox One experience has been making strides in preview. Until a few days ago, the list of known issues was pretty much longer than the patch notes, but today’s patch dropped the snags to one.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
