Improved hard drive space management and party systems on the way.

Today, Microsoft and Major Nelson detailed two incoming system updates for the Xbox One. These updates are among the first for the new console and include fixes for multiple fan feedback issues. The first update, due next week on February 11th includes some mysterious "behind-the-scenes updates for developers building apps and games for Xbox One, several new features we believe Xbox fans will love, stability and product updates to improve the customer experience, and continuous improvements to the quality of Kinect voice so commands become more fluid and responsive over time."

The February 11th update will also add the ability to see and mange storage space, the ability to "control your install lineup," which should make the download queue manageable with separate adjustable My Games and My Apps lists. The update will also allow users to see the controller battery level with on onscreen indicator, as well as add support for USB keyboards, presumably similar to use on the 360.

Further out on March 4th, there will be some updates ahead of the release of 'Titanfall.' "This update will contain many new features and improvements, most significantly to our party and multiplayer systems."
