According to a report today from VG 24/7, Microsoft is rumored to be poised to send out a significant system update for the Xbox One that would address issues with the user interface and Xbox Live with the next-gen console.

The speculation comes from a NeoGAF poster claiming to have inside knowledge of the situation, which was later confirmed separately by The Verge.

According to a report earlier this month from VG 24/7, Microsoft chief product officer Marc Whitten confirmed that the company had been receiving and addressing feedback from Xbox one users.

“The feedback we’ve gotten is pretty valid,” Whitten said. “Some of the social stuff is hidden or harder to use than it was on the Xbox 360. So you’re going to see us come out with an update where, well, we’re going to fix those things.”

Whitten said he took it to heart when Xbox One owners complained about the user interface in terms of difficulty getting into parties and the default settings not feeling right.

The supposed release of the system update comes as Microsoft starts a promotional campaign to get gamers to “ditch” the PS3 in favor of a $100 credit toward the Xbox One.
