Xbox Wants Japanese Exclusives, Japanese Devs Doubt Microsoft's Support

Read More145Minecraft Story Mode Episode 8 available now

The Xbox One Fall Update also lays the foundation for Xbox One X. There's a new Mixer tab in the dashboard that'll display popular livestreams that you can watch, and it should be easier to set up and initiate Mixer broadcasts while in-game too.

Other little tweaks include the option for a light or dark overall theme, faster navigation through tabs via stick, D-pad or bumpers, and you can now attach a USB webcam for streaming (although you'll still need a headset if you want anyone to hear you).

Microsoft has rolled out this year's Xbox One Fall Update, providing gamers with more ways of customizing their console.

If you wanted some honest explanation for the absence at large of Japanese releases on Xbox One, the CEO of NIS America is ready to give you one.

Aspects like Friend Activities, Leaderboards, and group messages are going to show up at the top of the Home Screen. Those using a controller won't be forced to go up against mouse and keyboard players in competitive shooters, but the option might be there for those who don't mind, as seen in Gears of War 4's separate mixed playlist. The action center is brand new to the guide, and users can find now find their settings page here.

Which OG Xbox game would you most like to play on your Xbox 360?

Japanese exclusives are certainly something that both Microsoft and Xbox One owners would love to see on the console, but it seems that some Japanese developers aren't convinced of Microsoft's support for the endeavor. Moreover, Microsoft has rearranged the Dashboard so that players can easily switch between the different sections. You can also download 4K content for existing games on an Xbox One, so you will hit the ground running after launching the Xbox One X. GameDVR has been updated to support more than 4K/HDR screenshots and game clips.

Xbox Assist can help you when you have a problem.

By default, updates are downloaded and installed when the console isn't in use to reduce the impact that the update process has on the overall Xbox One experience.

Are you looking forward to the Xbox One fall update?
