Those enrolled in the Xbox One Preview Program can now access a brand new system update, which brings fixes to a number of previously reported problems.
Games that have been uninstalled will no longer show up as installed. An issue with sorting, where the system would rearrange items alphabetically even when not asked to, has been fixed. A rare bug that would restrict users from participating in tournaments has been squashed. In addition, there are several localization improvements packed into the update.

Last month, Microsoft announced that it will soon be launching a “self-service refund” program for consumers to instantly refund their digital purchases. This covers both video games and applications available on the Microsoft Store. The decision is another step in the company’s goal to further improve its online services by acting on feedback and bringing in highly requested features.
Xbox One is also being prepped to receive Game Pass, a Netflix-style service that will grant members access to a large catalog of over a hundred games. This includes both Xbox One and backwards-compatible titles. It is similar to PlayStation Now, without any streaming or cumbersome requirements involved. Those interested will be bale to sign up for $10 per month.
