Xbox One To Receive Major System Updates

If Microsoft’s executives and Xbox One owners thought the Xbox One was powerful at launch, two major system updates hope to make the system even more powerful than at its launch.

According to Chief Product Officer Marc Whitten, the Xbox One, which was released in mid-November, is set to receive two major system updates, which according to Whitten, they will improve the system better than ever before.

Whitten said Microsoft appreciates feedback from its consumer base, and encourages to keep it coming.

“We’ve been carefully listening to your feedback and look forward to delivering many new features that will make Xbox One even better,” commented Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten. “We’re just getting started and can’t wait to share more information in the coming weeks.”

Whitten included some of the updates coming February 11, which include some of the following:

  • The ability to see and manage your storage space. With this update, you will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better manage your content. You can also control your install lineup and more easily manage your download queue. We’ve separated My Games and My Apps into separate lists, so you can easily create separate queues for both. Now you can pick the order in which you want your content to load and we’ve added a boot progress indicator so you can better track updates while they load.
  • The battery power indicator is back! You can see it right on the home screen, so you can easily track how much battery life is left on your controller.
  • And, you will be able to use your USB keyboard with your Xbox One.

Whitten said with Titanfall releasing March 11, the other major update will take place on March 4, which includes an improved party system that will make Titanfall a “must-have game.”

While Microsoft is keeping the major surprises under wraps for now, Whitten thinks Xbox One users will love the surprises they have in store. Considering some users thoughts on Microsoft, time will only tell if these surprises will pay dividends or blow up in Microsoft’s face.
