Christmas is tomorrow and if you’re giving someone a gaming console, or even a video game, you need to take some time today to unwrap it, fire it up, and install any and all updates it requests. Because there’s a chance that a manufacturer’s (or game’s) servers will be slammed on December 25 with everyone trying to do the exact same thing. And when that happens, the lovely console you purchased for that tiny person in your house becomes a paperweight, not something they can glue their faces to for the rest of the day. whether you’ve purchased an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Nintendo Switch, chances are the console will need to update itself with the latest software and may take some time to do so.  Updating a game is a little trickier since it will be visible on the person’s console.  However you can try and hide it my moving the icon to the extreme end of the recipient’s digital list of titles. They probably won’t notice it, but you’re rolling the dice on that one. This works best when you’re gifting someone a brand-new console or, better yet, a brand-new console with some extra games.
