In an effort to keep its Xbox One a strong contender in the console war against Sony's PlayStation 4, Microsoft has announced a series of updates for the video game system to be released on Feb. 11 and Mar. 4.

Microsoft will launch the first set of Xbox One system updates on Feb. 11.

The update will allow gamers to see and manage their storage space, as well as organize their installation line-up queue. The handy controller battery power indicator will also return and will be visible on the right side of the home screen. Finally, Microsoft will make the Xbox One compatible with USB computer keyboards.

According to Microsoft, the update will also include additional unidentified changes.

"...The first update ... features many new improvements -- including lots of 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," Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer, wrote in a blog post.

The company also announced that it will release another Xbox One update on Mar. 4.

" advance of what is expected to be the biggest game launch of the year, we will be delivering another system update to prepare your Xbox One for 'Titanfall,'" the post said. "This update will contain many new features and improvements, most significantly to our party and multiplayer systems."

Not many more details were given about the update except that it will enhance the experience of Titanfall, which is a "team-based online multiplayer game that showcases the power of Xbox Live. "Rumor also has it that Microsoft will release a special Titanfall edition of the Xbox One as well.

Titanfall will be released Mar. 11.

Early last month, Sony announced that it sold 4.2 million PS4s after its North American release on Nov. 15 and subsequent European and Australian Nov. 29 launch. Meanwhile, Microsoft sold over 3 million Xbox One consoles in 2013 since its Nov. 29 launch in 13 countries.

Will these updates be enough to push the Xbox One's sale numbers above those of Sony's PS4? Comment below and tell us what you think.
