Also today, if you’re an Xbox One S user who wants to dive more in to the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format, here’s good news: Engadget has confirmed that Microsoft is adding Dolby Atmos playback (via bitstream) to the console in a future free firmware update. There’s no word yet about DTS:X, but one would think that’s possible too and could happen at some point.
