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.

When I meant they compete, I meant that both are game machines meant to play serious games in a non-portable environment. I am not trying to claim one is better than the other, just that if graphics are your primary concern, the PC is easily the best choice.

Personally, I'd go for the platform that offers the game I like the best. If the PS exclusives do it for you, then by all means go for that one. None of the games you listed really excite me, mostly shooters and driving games. There are plenty of shooters and driving games on the PC, better ones, in my opinion.

There are specific games that I can't get on PC, but what game genres can I not get? I admit that I almost got a PS3 for Infamous, but I couldn't justify a console purchase for one game. Really, nothing else in the PS lineup caught my eye. If the "interactive movie" Last of Us is the game most people quote to me when they try to convince me that I should get one, they can keep it. I prefer gameplay over watching a movie.

I bought a Wii U because of all the consoles, that is the one that offers the most difference from the PC experience. None of the others are nearly as good for party games or for chilling with the kids. If I had to choose between Xbox One or PS4, I'd go with the One because of Kinect. It has the most potential of the two for fun, silly party games.

If I wanted the shooter experience, I'd play something like Metro Last Light, but I've gotten bored with shooters. I prefer driving games that are more realistic sims than arcade games, so I play SimRaceway. Or I'll throw on one of the Dirt games when I want something less complex.

My main genres are space sims, turn based strategy, and RPGs. All of those are lacking on consoles.
