Microsoft’s Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has assured Xbox One owners there’ll be no half-baked updates to the console.
He said: “I’m not a big fan of Xbox One and a half. If we’re going to move forward, I want to move forward in big numbers.
“I don’t know anything about any of the rumors that are out there, but I can understand other teams’ motivations to do that.
Recent rumours have suggested Sony is going all in on a new PlayStation console that would potentially enable 4K graphics along with a sizeable GPU and CPU leap, less than three years since the PS4 went on sale.

It is thought that any update would be optimised for the PSVR headset and could also include a 4K Blu-ray player.
Sony is yet to officially address such a machine, but PS4 owners are already fearful their new-ish console could be outdated by the end of the year.
Conversely, some folks appear to be excited by the prospect of a mid-cycle upgrade, with many using the logic that they pay £500 for a new phone every year, so why not a console?
Microsoft seems to believe that there’s no need to supercharge its latest console like a gaming PC, but where do you stand?
