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.

I disagree with your assertion that Sony always attracts the better games.

Stupid argument anyway, I own both consoles because I like them BOTH. But in my experience so far, nothing that I've played on the PS4 has had a clear real world advantage over the One version. I've actually preferred the One version so far out of anything that is also offered on the PS4, probably because the controller is still 10x better. The technical arguments about 'OMG it's only 720p, and OMG, I can't believe it can't do 30,000 fps all the time, and OMG, where's my 16xFSAA' can kiss my ass, as it obviously doesn't detract from the actual gaming experience.

Side by side, playing the games, they look identical to me. All this other crap is just banter for kiddy console wars.

Yes I'm sure you've set up two of the exact same TV sets, calibrated the same, and have done objective "side by side" benchmarks of both consoles.

People who get paid to do this for a living have, and they show you as being wrong.

And the developers are coming out in favor of the Playstation 4, which is perhaps more important than anything.

Not only that developers prefer PS4 platform - it sells more. Which, I think, is major motivator for developers to select one platform as their development platform, and settle down for porting (more or less successfully) to other platforms.

Or to completely ditch other platforms.

PS2 wasn't even the nicest platform to develop - hardware was quirky, especially compared to pretty much PC-grade standard and more powerful original Xbox.

And yet, we all know which platform received more exclusive titles.

Back to the future, PS4 is selling more AND is preferred by Developers.

Double down, basically.

Doubt MS will suffer if at all, even if that means releasing another model with slightly better hardware, not really realistic thinking and it's not even necessary at this point. Seriously, the 360 spanked the hell out of the PS3, so maybe it's Sony's turn this time. Fine and great by me as I have both so it really doesn't matter to me.

I've done the side by sides and there's no real difference unless you're paid to look for a difference and cater to techtards looking for consolz warz.

Also, I never said "love", I said "like". I liked that I had a PS3 just in case - it also did 3D bluray which was nice - I hardly used it for gaming other than the Uncharted and GoW series...which wasn't saying much....

You just said your PS3 is collecting dust, and same is happening to your PS4.

Very strange definition for word "LOVE".
