A New Xbox One preview build arrives today

A new Xbox One preview build is arriving today, bringing a few new changes to Microsoft's gaming console.

Here's what's new according Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra, the ?Partner Director of Program Management for Xbox and Windows.

Language Independence: Based on overwhelming fan feedback, we’ve enabled Language Independence to give you even more choices over your Xbox experience and how you engage with your Xbox One. Language Independence gives you the freedom to choose any supported language on Xbox One, regardless of your location.

Please try out this capability and give us your feedback. If you encounter any issues, change your language and location settings back to their previous values to see if the issue still exists. We look forward to your feedback.

Game Pre-orders: When purchasing a game pre-order, funds may no longer be deducted from your account immediately (depending on when the game pre-order is purchased). Pre-order funds will now be deducted from your account 10 days or less prior to the game’s release date.

So what do you think? Are you a fan of Microsoft's Xbox One preview updates and do you feel they are helping to improve and evolve the system?

MS are smashing it out the park in terms of updates and listening to what users want. Its nothing like the machine that shipped 3 years ago. And they have build the machine the fans wanted in the shape of scorpulus....the futures bright the futures XBOX

The pre order thing I'm really happy about as Iv never understand why say you pre ordered a digital game 3 months in advance and had to pay £60 instantly .. so much better now

I think Steam still charge straight away on preorders. PSN store is charging on some preorders now (South Park) probably due to people abusing preorder bonuses, eg Division beta - place preorder, get code, cancel preorder. Unless preorders qualify now for rewards system I will still not preorder, unless preorder bonuses are worth the vip loss.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
