This is all the info pulled from the update beta. I believe they did a beta this time because the last update released a week late and they want to be SURE everything is working amazingly for titanfall. Which helps those of us getting that game AND will make the next war run smoother as far as party and chat go! I feel like, in a sense, the Xbox One was released unfinished as they have to keep doing updates to put in features it was supposed to ship with. That being said, I love it and the future of this system is amazing. Looking forward 4-5 years I believe the PS4 and Xbox One will be totally different machines. While Sony took the safe "gamer" route, that is all there is to their machine. The potential for the Xbox One as not just a gaming machine but an amazing and necessary part of future home entertainment systems is astounding. There is a reason they are forcing everyone to have the kinect and the things they will do with it are crazy! Also, the main reason I bought a One so early in it's life cycle (other than Titanfall) is that I had an old school original 360 with the 20gb HD. Looking at the new 360's and how much they have changed should show you what I am talking about for the potential of this new system! Anyhow, on to the update notes:

Oh yeah, PS4 is a beast. Any Sony system is going to be crazy good for games. But it is not going to end up doing what the One is heading for. Next generation Sony is going to be playing catch up. I'm not a fan boy, I've owned all the systems. It's where microsoft is going with the kinect and everything else they are doing with the One that is so exciting. Forget the gaming, It's like how Wii comes out with the motion controls and everyone loses their potato. It revitalizes Nintendo, becomes a world wide hit, and Sony rushes to cash in with the sixaxis controller. What does Microsoft do? Forget the controller, lets use our hands! The One will be way more than a gaming machine but still be able to play games just as well as the PS4. It's built for it, and Sony's machine isn't. I just read an interview with the creator of DayZ who said he couldn't talk about anything, but he was super excited about what's coming for the Xbox One. I guess MS brought him in to sell him on working on their console and let him in on some of the stuff coming down the road and their future plans and he loves it and can't wait for us to hear it. I also really like that MS is playing it close and making sure stuff works before telling us this stuff is coming. They have a long game plan and clearly know what they are doing, are willing to take a loss right now in the "console wars" by not taking the kinect out, etc. because they know where they are going to be taking us in the next few years.
