The Xbox One is getting another controller update, unfortunately

Really, Microsoft? You just asked gamers to go through the hassle of updating their Xbox One gamepads in March, yet there’s word on NeoGAF that the next patch — currently in testing — will once again bundle “new controller firmware.” Yes, the (hopefully optional) code should fix connection and headset quality issues that are even more of a pain, but it’s doubtful that Xbox owners will relish plugging in peripherals a second time to get reliability that should have been present on day one. At least users can take comfort in new system features added to the list of coming updates, including a button to check for future software updates manually and redeeming codes directly from Xbox Live messages. Let’s just hope that gamepad upgrades are less frequent from here on out.
