The Microsoft Xbox is a popular video game console, but its software is far from up to snuff.
Now Microsoft is planning to introduce a new, “soft” reboot of the system, in which the software will be rebuilt from scratch.
But that could not come soon enough for some gamers, who have taken to social media to vent their frustration.
“We are not ready to release the Xbox 1 to the public, and are working to get it ready for release,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement.
The announcement comes as Microsoft is expected to announce a $100 price cut for Xbox One on Monday, following a surge in demand for the console.
The announcement comes after Microsoft’s quarterly results showed sales of the console had risen sharply in the US.
As part of its soft reboot, Microsoft plans to remove its online-only Xbox Live service and turn the Xbox on only through a set of Kinect motion sensors that track how your hands are positioned.
This is expected later this month.
In its announcement, Microsoft is also planning to release a new console called Xbox One X, which will feature more powerful hardware.
However, Microsoft will also discontinue the Xbox 360 in the future.
Microsoft is hoping to avoid a similar fate to its Xbox One console.
Microsoft is also reportedly planning to sell off its gaming division.
The company is currently in talks with Japanese gaming company Capcom to sell the division, which was responsible for creating the original Xbox.
