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 don't give a crap about the branding, I just go with personal experience. And with that, the 360 absolutely crushed the PS3 when it came to value for ME.

So why wouldn't I think MS would just improve on that value? Well, so far they have. When more games start coming out, we'll know for sure. It's just too early to tell right now.

And like I keep repeating, I'm a gaming enthusiast, I have all of it, and I want all of it to succeed because that's what we need for the experience to keep improving.

That is fine... but also highly individual.

My case was kind of the same, but opposite. I played Halo 1 and 2 on PC and wasn't too interested in continuing, for some reason. Not that I didn't like Halo, I just didn't like it enough to influence my console choice.

I also played Gears on PC. At the time I was hopeful sequels will come to PC; this is probably the only franchise I regret not playing more.

Eventually, I wanted console to play games other than PC strongholds - 3rd person action adventures, platforms, driving. I found PS3 offering more on that front, and Blu-ray was nice addition. I swapped consoles with friend for some time, tried Halos, Forza, Fable... and never regretted my choice.
