Xbox One will require a day one update to the system in order for it to function, according to the firmâ€™s senior director of product management Albert Penello.
Speaking with Engadget, Penello said the system will not be usable straight out of the box, as consumers will be able to do â€œnothingâ€ until the update is downloaded.
â€œYou need the day one update,â€ he said. â€œFunctionally, you will be able to do very little without taking the day one update. A lot of the apps come with the day one update because they wouldnâ€™t have even been done.
â€œYouâ€™re gonna need to take this update. Itâ€™s not gonna be really an optional thing.â€
Sony will release a day one update for PlayStation 4as well, for the same reasons as Microsoft, and to also to add updates to some of the systemâ€™s basic functions.
Xbox One launches November 22.
