It's possible you'll either be required to upgrade to the final version, or you won't be able to go online until then, or possibly not be able to play anything until you update.

This is usually the case when running beta software.

The OP means it's rumoured that the XBO had a rushed launch to compete with the PS4, and this period before Titanfall's launch was a "beta test" to iron out all the bugs.

Ex: New Twitch integration, Removing the sharpening filter on the upscaler, adjusting the XBO controller for Titanfall, etc.

I don't know what this article is talking about - Xbox One was beta tested in the future!

On a serious note, I'm definitely looking forward to the March update.

Both the PS4 and Xbone are in beta, its what you get when you purchase an electronic on day one. PS4's OS is stronger but these DL times are ridiculous...

No. Its what you get for buying *these* devices day one when the strong-suit of both is based on online support.

Nifty, I'll have an improved Xbox One to look forward too once I get my Titanfall Bundle.

Lol that's my way of thinking.. hearing some of the changes coming reinforces my belief that I made the right decision not being an early adopter.

Yup. As my father always said, "Never be the first in, or the last out." as applied to one's journey as a consumer.

By the time I get one mid year or even down towards the holidays, a good bit of the launch kinks would've been smoothed out, a library would've been established and the experience on our Xbones will be smooth and pleasant.

Weird. I jump into all the 'betas' I can get my hands on :) Games, hardware, services etc. Sure, many are 'free' betas but I got plenty of use during this 3 month beta period lol.

It's a separate issue why Microsoft, already having the 360 for 8 years, was still 3 months behind on so much stuff. Even for the "TV TV TV" stuff, I heard that April will be the month that more of that comes online.
