Big Xbox One system update coming next week
The Xbox One will receive its very first system update next week built on the feedback of the Xbox One's users.
Microsoft's Marc Whitten detailed the new update which will add USB keyboard support, a battery light indicator for the controller and the the ability to see and manage the Xbox One's storage space as well as a host of tweaks and improvements to the Kinect voice commands and the layout of the Xbox Home Screen.
“I’m excited to be able to share details with you today about several product updates we’ll be delivering for Xbox One starting next week,” Whitten said. “The team has been really excited to see the gameplay on Xbox One and the millions of hours of fun our fans have experienced since launch. We’ve also been busy listening to your feedback and working hard to incorporate it into Xbox One as soon as possible. We remain incredibly energized and we are aggressively working to make Xbox One better, faster than ever before.”
The first update is due to be released on Xbox Live on February the 11th. Whitten also gave the date of the next update as March the 4th in preparation for the release of Titanfall a week later. More details are available over on the Xbox News Wire.
