Microsoft released this week march update for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S y Xbox One with multiple new features and interface improvements. In the official communiqué they did not speak of another addition: the solution, in part, of the problem that led to the new Xbox Series controller will suddenly disconnect on next-gen consoles, and especially on Xbox One.
Jason Ronald, responsible for program management at Xbox, has been in charge of giving the news on his personal Twitter account. Sharing the update news reports: “In addition to the new features, this release also fixes many of the controller disconnects that players have reported“In the message he calls for users who continue to have problems to report to Microsoft.
Lots of Xbox news this week, but in case you missed it we released our March Xbox System Update yesterday.
In addition to the new features, this release also fixes many of the controller disconnects players have reported.
Keep the feedback coming.https://t.co/bltTsL6Lty— Jason Ronald (@jronald) March 10, 2021
Xbox Series controller users have been complaining about this issue since Xbox Series X / S and its accessories were released to the market on November 10 in Spain and other countries, as reflected in this thread on the official Microsoft forum in which 3100+ users share their problem, they report from VGC.
Microsoft claims to be working on a solution to the problem last January“We are aware that some players may be experiencing disconnections on their new Xbox Wireless controller and our teams are actively working on a fix that will be included in an upcoming update.” The error is represented in the Official list of “Xbox Series X / S Known Issues”.
The brand is also working on solving the problem of unacknowledged button presses
Another mistake that we echoed last week and that is being studied by Microsoft has to do with the Xbox Series controller button response: Sometimes pressing a button causes company consoles, computers and mobile devices they do not detect the input.
Returning to the update for Xbox consoles released this week, a shortcut is added that allows turn FPS Boost and Auto HDR on and off in backward compatible video games that have these functions. Also included is support for the new Wireless Headset de Xbox to hit stores on March 16.
