Xbox One Update Delayed, Another in the Works
Owners will have to wait a little longer to see how much storage space they have left. Meanwhile, Microsoft is gearing up for the high-profile release of "Titanfall."Xbox One owners have another system update to look forward to in early March. Meanwhile, this week's update has been pushed back a few days. The patch was supposed to arrive Feb. 11, but the company has pushed back its release. Xbox Live's program director, Larry Hryb (@majornelson), alerted his Twitter followers to the slight delay. Hryb tweeted: "FYI: The February #XboxOne System Update will ship this week, but not today. The team is working on finalizing. More details when I get them" The update was meant to cure the storage blindness suffered by owners of Microsoft's newest game console. Instead of detailing how much storage space is available on the device's built-in 500GB hard drive, the Xbox One issues alerts as its capacity begins to dwindle.
On Feb. 5, Marc Whitten, Xbox's chief product officer, announced that the Feb. 11 update would remedy the situation and provide visibility (and a level of manageability) into the console's storage capacity. "With this update, you will find it easy to find how much space your content takes up and better manage your content," he said in a statement. It would also include support for USB keyboards, add download management tools and bring back the on-screen controller battery indicator.
