Xbox One February update now avialble

If you are an Xbox One owner, the February update should now be available for your console (the update started rolling out last Friday). Microsoft says that the console now checks for updates automatically when it is turned off for users that use the “Instant On” function.
 
The update brings with it new features like the ability to see and manage the storage space on the internal hard drive. The update also allows the user to control the install lineup and mange the download queue.
 
The full list of improvements in the update include:
  • Ability to delete game and application save data
  • Improved installation and DLC management
  • Improved UI for accessing friends, achievements, messages, and party chat
  • Game DVR app to be included in the Xbox OneGuide as an app channel
  • Update to the boot progress indicators for system update
  • Improve consistency of UX for update & install progress
  • Separate game, application, and install queue lists
  • Addition of USB keyboard support
  • Improved NAT detection
  • Network Troubleshooter improvements
  • Blu-ray quality improvements
  • Significant performance and stability improvements
Microsoft is committed to providing continual updates for the Xbox One, just as it did with its predecessor.

You're so right.

I have a foot in both camps or more precise considering the Sony vs. Microsoft thing I should really need an extra foot since I'm finding fun with PC's, Playstation's and XBOX's:-)

If all three platforms offered the same games I'd only running a PC, but since they are not and gaming is all about the games it hard to go without any of them. No question that better hardware makes for better games, but gameplay is king so really people should focus on that.

There is fun to be had even with old school titles like Angband, a a game which in many ways was the Diablo of the day back when even colors was not found on all systems (seeing a green dragon for the first time being represented by an actual green D was amazing).

I had a "foot in both camps" last gen. This gen I need to make a decision, $50 a year for PSN or $59 a year for XBL. Well, I already cancelled my XBL account (fortunately, I had an expired credit card on file...Xbox 360 wont LET you cancel your XBL account from the console, directing you instead to cancel via a webpage on a computer! I just moved my "renewal" to the expired card though, and got around THAT stupid requirement!)...and I just subscribed to PSN, even though I have yet to buy my PS4. I just downloaded Bioshock Infinite and XCOM: Enemy Unknown for my PS3. What were the free games again on XBL? Oh yeah, "Dead Island" and "Toy Soldiers"...both games you can get for $15 or less at the local used game store!

I only have so much money to spend on games and digital subscriptions this year, and Microsoft, due to having less compelling products and services, is losing my money...and if I have my way, they will never see ANY of it again!
