To follow up on our previous story about the new features in the future updates for the Xbox One, Microsoft’s Major Nelson has confirmed the 50 Hz Blu-ray output, firmware updates for the controller and the headset, and an enhanced update process.

Now, if you keep your Xbox One in Instant On mode, it will automatically download a new update and then return to Instant On mode when it’s finished. You can also manually select an available update from your system settings. This is a small change, but it’s something a lot of fans have wanted for a while now.

These features are still being previewed, but we’re sure they’ll reach the public as soon as any issues are cleared up.
