Microsoft Still Amidst Xbox One S; Windows 10 Update Issues?By Gretch.Z, UniversityHerald Reporter
Microsoft has been having issues with its competitors as well as its customers. Sony released the PS4 Pro without the 4K Blu-ray player and Microsoft reportedly emphasized the 4K Blu-ray player on the Xbox One S, simultaneous with the PS4 Pro's release. The company has also received a slew of complaints regarding the Windows 10 Update and the Anniversary Update.
Sony decided not to include a 4K Blu-ray player for PS4 Pro. While Microsoft is yet to confirm if Xbox Scorpio will include a 4K Blu-ray player, the Xbox One S already features a 4K Blu-ray player. On the same day that Sony announced the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, Microsoft tweeted that the Xbox One S features a 4K Blu-ray player. This was said to be business as usual for competing companies and not a sign of disrespect for Sony, GameSpot reported.
