The March Xbox One update is rolling out to all users soon, bringing with it improved social support and Dolby Digital output over digital optical (for surround sound headsets). It also includes an update protocol for controllers, which should improve performance, especially in first-person shooters.

We went through the update process a couple of times and put together a guide to find and complete the update. It took us one minute and thirteen seconds to update each controller, and we didn't even need to take out the batteries.


Step 1: Go to your settings menu ("Xbox, Go to Settings") and choose "System"
Step 2: Inside the System menu, you'll find the new "Update Controller" option
Step 3: Connect a USB cable to your Xbox One controller. You won't need to remove the batteries.
Step 4: Wait for 1 minute and 13 second while the new firmware is loaded into the controller. Repeat with additional controllers.

and if we don't have a damn cable? you know since they aren't supplied with the console or with controllers and we can't assume everyone just has one lying around...

not really the point... you don't roll out an update for something that requires something you don't include.

honestly dude in this day and age if you don't have a cable with the connections the controller uses just laying around your house there is something wrong with you. these types of cables come with cell phones and things and digital cameras. I'm sure you don't have have a USB to microUSB cable laying somewhere around your house? or have access to one. hell I bought a cheap ass car charger from my local walmart for my windows phone for 5 bucks and it had a 6 foot cable in it.

don't assume everyone runs out and gets a new phone every year, my droid does not use that wire and neither do my 2 digital cameras. In fact I have 0 devices that use that connector.
