New or updated features

Multiplayer & Party Chat updates

  • Fix to address multiplayer issues across a few titles.
  • Made some small updates to the Party app to help team better understand issues reported by the community.

Game Bundles update

  • Fixed an issue where certain type of disc-based bundled games would not properly install

10-bit HD High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) platform support added

  • 10-bit HD HEVC enables video streaming apps, like NetFlix, to use lower bandwidth to deliver HD quality video streams. 10-bit Ultra color increases the video color precision from 8-bits to 10-bits – with 8-bits you only get 16 million colors, but with 10-bit Ultra color precision you get 1 billion life-like colors that makes your video more vibrant.

This patch includes several small changes that were made on the preview version over the past couple weeks, plus the new video codec. It’ll be interesting to see if more new features will come this month with E3 Being next week!
