Many will no doubt have seen this already but if not, Xbox had a sizeable update on Wednesday this week across all consoles. For those of us that suffer from Colour Blindness there are many options to help but there is also a controller firmware update that improves controller latency. Biggest update for me personally is the audio update that includes the option of Dolby Atmos (it does come with a £10 licence fee via the Dolby Atmos Xbox app) I've yet to try the improvements on 2K21 as the difference in Forza 5 Horizon in Dolby Vison 120hz twinned with Dolby Atmos is quite frankly STUNNING!!! This gives us great hope for a future golf game that can put the latest consoles and TV's through their paces.

The future of gaming is bright, so long as the developers embrace it.

I got confused read your thread title... I thought it was saying this update is coming on November 21st?  I then read it and realized you were describing it so it actually had to be out already.  It actually was released on the 17th, but yes... it's everything you cracked it up to be.  I think there's lots benefits yet to be realized from this update.  Who knows, we might get more consistent server/swing performance out of PGA TOUR 2K21 on the XBox side before it's over. :)

That controller reduced latency - does/will that help with the Xbox swing on this game do we think?

Probably the most interesting aspect of this update to XBox players.  I've only played 36 holes since the update was installed on my Series X.  I shot a 60 and a 73.  The 73 was because my 3-putt woes returned due to my pulling short putts, and overpowering long putts.  I was on fire tempo wise, with a few exceptions in those two rounds however.  It will probably take a full week of play before I'm able to give it an overall assessment.
