Like all game consoles, there are occasional updates to add new features such as social networking tools like Facebook, Twitter, etc or the ability to play different types of files.

The files which users could download to do so have also been pulled.

"The site was not an alternative way to take the Day One update and customers still need to connect to Xbox Live for the update," a spokesperson said.

The Gold Membership gives you Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, streaming Netflix, video chat, and Xbox Live parties.

Those looking to update their systems offline will need a USB stick with at least two gigabytes of space on it, and will need to format it as NTFS on their computers.

After checking their OS version on their Xbox One consoles, they can then download one of two compressed files to their computer from the Xbox support page, unzip them and copy the contents to the root of the USB stick.

"That file was never designed to replace the day one update," Microsoft exec Albert Penello explained via Neo GAF.
