Much like they did with the Xbox 360, Microsoft will releasing system updates to the Xbox One to improve or add features not included before. Upon the release of the Xbox One, gamers have been vocal in regards to the Xbox One’s lack of any sort of storage management, not knowing the controllers battery life, and long installs. All of these are said to be addressed in the upcoming update that will hit on Feb. 11th.
– 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.
Those are just a few of the major features to be included in the update, alongside several performance updates behind the scenes. That is not all. Microsoft will drop a second update on March 4th, to prep itself for the release of Titanfall. The details are pretty vague on the update but they promise to improve the party and multiplayer systems.
Though someone will surely knock Microsoft for not having some of these functions available day one, better 2 months later than never. Not to mention the Xbox 360 in 2013 was a million times better than the Xbox 360 they launched back in 2005.
