XBox One System Update : Turn One Degree And Stay

As if you didn’t have enough reasons to love the new Xbox, Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer of XBox One just announced a system update set to be released on February 11th. As for the changes, you can expect to see the kind of improvements that may just convert a PC gamer. Read below for a full list of the changes and additions you can expect to see after logging into XBox One.

Speaking of PC gamers, if you hated the XBox controller and wish you could just use a keyboard, now you can! The update will allow USB keyboards to be plugged into the console.

Kinect will be seeing a boost with Whitter stating there will be “continuous improvements to the quality of Kinect voice so commands become more fluid and responsive over time.”

Updates themselves will be easier to manage since players will now see a boot progress indicator when content is loading, you can also rearrange the order XBox One content will load with ease.

The lack of an easy to see controller battery power indicator caused much distress within the XBox One community, and in response you will be able to now see when your controller is going to die right on your home screen.

View and control your storage space like never before with an improved installation screen, complete with a movable lineup and download queue. The new separation of “My Games” and “My Apps” makes having two separate queues for them simple as well.

But what about the developers?

While not going as in-depth into the subject as done with the other improvements, it’s clear there will be goodies for all, according to Whitter the system update will be “including lots of behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games for Xbox One” as well as “stability and product updates”

It’s a rare situation for a system update to achieve such high approval from the entire community, but its clear XBox One has been listening to their fans. More features and changes from the update will continue to be reported in the coming weeks as information is release so check back often.

    I have not updated my system, I still have an X Box 360, as I am an avid PC gamer. I might need to update……

    Hi Ret0,

    If you are a PC gamer, I would definitely recommend the Xbox One, over the PS4. I am not a fan of the kinetic, I feel as though it still needs improvement, but I am sure they will get there.
