Xbox One Updates: Wi-Fi Issues Being Resolved; Killer Instinct Patch Detailed; Glimpse of Project Spark Games

One of the issues affecting the Xbox One had involved Wi-Fi problems. Some games can't be played online while using the Xbox One, and though there is no definite list of games that are affected by this issue, a lot of users have experienced a similar problem.
"Comcast and Microsoft are aware of a software issue affecting the ability of Xbox One users to play some games online. This issue is only observed when the Xbox One is connected to a network via WiFi and when that network also has an IPv6 address," said Comcast's official statement on its Web site.
In the statement, Comcast has mentioned a quick fix for the problem, which is to connect the Xbox One using an Ethernet cable instead of going for a Wi-Fi connection.
For now, both Comcast and Microsoft are hard at work trying to diagnose the issue as well as in creating a software update that would allow a more definitive solution to the issue. The software update for the Xbox One had been promised to come soon after the holidays.

Over at publisher Double Helix's forum, a full list of the patch has been released. There are in-game updates, online updates, ranked matches updates, gameplay updates and character specific fixes.
'Project Spark' Games Look Very Interesting Even at Beta
Among the upcoming Xbox One games this 2014, one of the most awaited ones includes "Project Spark," which is an exclusive title that lets players create their own game.

It already went into beta early December for the Windows 8.1, and as a fruit of that, Jurassic Junkie has found a number of created games from other players. Since the tools for creating games were reportedly easy to use, the community seems to have gotten started with what they want to show off to the rest of the players.
The list has games like "Tower Defense"; "Slender Game," which takes after the "Slenderman" franchise; "Ryse Son of Spark," an obvious spin from the "Ryse" exclusive title on the Xbox One; "Synthesizer" for music; and "Tetris" with a unique design. Those interested can check out the screenshots for the games in the link above.
