Microsoft will fix Xbox One party chat before Titanfall launch and other updates

Anyone excited for party chat and these updates?

Two Xbox One updates will introduce a new party chat system. Also: USB keyboards! Battery power indicator! Storage management!

Microsoft has said it will release two firmware updates for the Xbox One in advance of Titanfall, promising to improve the system's features--including, crucially, party chat--in time for the launch of the anticipated multiplayer shooter.

The two updates are scheduled to arrive on February 11 and March 4.

With the February 11 update, users will finally be able to manage their hard drive space, alongside managing download queues and install order.

The February 11 update will also bring back an onscreen battery power indicator for controllers, and support for USB keyboards.

The March 4 update, meanwhile, will feature a new party and multiplayer system for the Xbox One, with Microsoft specifically saying that the update will optimize the Xbox One for the launch of Titanfall on March 11.

Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten says that these will be the "first of many announcements and sneak peeks at features in the system updates."

Party chat should already work, really lame that it didn't right out of the box.

yeah this should have been high priority...when you buy a $500+ machine to play online with your friends and YOU CAN'T it should have been the first thing to be fixed...

Haven't touched my XB1 in weeks.. I went back to the 360...because it works

imo they rushed the launch so they have to fix things now, but all this should have been there at launch.
