Xbox One controller input "fix" coming in firmware update

"It was a little overly twitchy."

Xbox One's controller input will be tweaked as part of the system's February firmware update.

The "fix" has been added specifically at the request of Titanfall's development team, The Verge reported, in another sign of just how crucial Microsoft is treating the game's launch.

"It's just fixing the controller input, really," Titanfall design lead Justin Hendry explained. "It wasn't really where we felt it should be; it was a little overly twitchy with the current controls. Now it's fixed. We're happy with it."

The update will increase the sensitivity of the Xbox One controller's thumbsticks - specifically their outer boundaries.

Titanfall developer Respawn is also working with Microsoft on an improved version of the console's upscaler, used to improve the look of games with sub-1080p resolutions.

Xbox One's February system update was due to arrive yesterday but was pushed back until later in the week.

The console's March update will host further updates designed to arrive before Titanfall's launch, including improved party and multiplayer functionality.
