After being revealed late last month and subsequently tested with their new preview program, Microsoft has today announced that the Xbox One June update is now rolling out to all platform holders.

The new update will offer the chance for Xbox One users to attach external storage devices (larger than 256GB) via the USB 3.0 and store games, add-ons and apps to it. For storing games, users can copy full games and associated downloadable content to an external drive, then play that content on another console. Those utilising the external support like this will have to verify ownership of the content by signing in to their Xbox Live account or by having a disc in the system's optical drive.

Real name support will also be featured in the update, applying directly to the Xbox Live friends list. Microsoft said Xbox One owners will be able to share real names "with all your friends, a subset of your choosing, friends of friends or none at all." Real names don't display in games, and "you can change your settings any time from your profile and when adding new friends."

You can read up on the full change list at Major Nelson's blog post, which goes into far more depth on how to tweak and configure all the new features.

I thought they were going to make some external HDs for the Xbox One but they are actually just providing an external HD feature. Typical of a software company I guess.

I'm not fussed either way. Just seems strange that Micro$oft wouldn't cash in on it themselves. Major Nelson even tweeted some brands he recommends.

Apparently the new update helps devs get more gpu power from the console too. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/06/04/xbox-one-devkits-get-more-gpu-power-in-latest-update.aspx
