Two System Updates Before Titanfall
There is a bunch of news today. Microsoft is planning on dropping two updates – February 11 and March 4 – before what they are anticipating will be “the biggest game launch of the year”, Titanfall. I tend to agree with them on the “biggest launch” point, and I am relieved that their second update is more than a week before Titanfall arrives. Microsoft has released a few details on the updates, which will include better Kinect voice recognition and full access to storage and battery info. Sounds like a DICE update, “We tweaked the guns for better balance”. Meanwhile, everything else is broken.
Microsoft also says that there is more and that they have “several surprises in store” that they think we’ll “love”. One can only hope that it will include some party chat app improvements.
Also, on the topic of Titanfall, Zampella has been busy dropping tidbits on his Twitter and TotalXbox has the round up here. Apparently, the date for the beta isn’t determined yet. The rumor is the 14th, but Zampella says that isn’t for sure yet.
