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 said ALL AAA titles are cross-platform, to try to make some case that technical merit is the deciding factor in console sales. No, it is, and always has been, games. I'm not defending the memory bandwidth gap. Show me one post were I did. I'm not even trying to be pro-Xbox or anti-PS, I'm agnostic on that front. I'm just trying to get the point across to you that most console gamers are not into technical specs. They just want to play games. Whichever system has the most popular exclusives will sell, just like last gen.

Agreed. It's not just about games, but also about which platforms your friends play on as well. My dad works with a groups of people who played CoD on PS3 and so for a while he was considering getting one because of that. It had nothing to do with whether or not the hardware was better, just that the people who knew played it on that one.

I also know a number of people who have purchased PS3 just for the exclusives. My brother bought a PS3 and wants a PS4 because of Final Fantasy. He couldn't otherwise care less about what hardware is in the consoles.

We can even go a step further and I made my purchase of a Wii solely for the exclusives on that console too. The Wii was clearly the loser in last gen's hardware, outperformed vastly by the 360 and PS3, but it had some good titles that I wanted. I'd happily bear through the lack of higher quality graphics to play Metroid Prime 3 and Skyward Sword. Nintendo is a prime example of how games sell the consoles.

If you look at history, the weaker console often ends up being the winner for that gen. All the way back to the beginning, this is true. The Intellivision was more powerful than the Atari 2600. The TurboGraphix 16 and the NeoGeo were more powerful than anything they competed with, both failed though. The Dreamcast, Gamecube, and Xbox were all more powerful than the PS2. The Wii was significantly weaker than the 360 or PS3. Seems like hardware prowess actually has very little to do with overall sales.

No, I said nothing about sales initially, You brought sales up and to that, I said AA titles are cross platform. I was just slamming MS for the memory bandwidth, nothing else.
