What was changed with the first major XBox One update?


Anyone know what the XBox One software updated changed or improved? I’m still on the fence between an Xbox One and PS4, although at this point in the product cycle, I can afford to wait a little longer without really missing out on much. To be honest, I’m leaning towards the PS4, but I would really like to play Titanfall and that’s going to be an XBox One exclusive, so I’m still trying to gather information to help me make the right decision.
