    Microsoft to Unveil the Future of Windows Today

    Good morning Microsoft. Today, in San Francisco, Microsoft will formally unveil what it has in store for Windows’ next version.

The community will be rather gracious should a build land for people to play with, but, we are not keeping our fingers crossed. We are keeping our screens glued here for the latest announcements from Microsoft as they happen.

    New NFL app brings Sunday Ticket, detailed fantasy football tracking to Xbox One

    If you’re a football fan, Microsoft wants to make an Xbox One integral to your gameday experience. A new version of the NFL app for Xbox One, coming out later this month, is how the company plans to do it.

    It starts with videos. Lots of videos. The app is centered around NFL Now, the personalized highlight and analysis channel that’s tailored for your favorite teams and your fantasy leagues.

    That’s not all: if you have a cable subscription to NFL Network and NFL RedZone, you’ll be able to stream those on the console, and DirecTV Sunday Ticket subscribers will get full access…

  • June Xbox One Update To Bring External Storage, Real Names And More

    Much lauded as one of the key features for the Xbox One but nowhere to be found at launch, external USB storage support will be available as part of the June update. Users will be able to plug any USB 3.0 drive with a capacity of at least 256 GB in order to bolster their Xbox One storage and even take installed games and videos with them to friends’ Xbox Ones. Also being introduced is Name Sharing, which will allow you to share your real name with a select group of your friends. You can customise exactly who gets to see your real name, and in games you’ll still be seen by your gamertag. Also on the SmartGlass front, there’s a host of new improvements. You’ll now be able to reorder your pinned items easily directly from the SmartGlass device and now there’s a huge helping of OneGuide functionality. You’ll be […]

     
  • Halo 5: Guardians Announced For Xbox One

    Halo 5: Guardians Announced For Xbox One

    Well ever since we got that sand filled teaser at E3 last year, we knew it was only a matter of time until a new Halo landed on Xbox One. 13 years since the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved, next fall will see the launch of Halo 5: Guardians. 343 Industries says that the game will use a brand new engine and will incorporate the lessons they learned from Halo 4, which we referred to as the most accomplished game in the series in our review two years ago. As they did with Halo 4, we hope 343 are taking advantage of the rich mythology of the Halo universe for the Xbox One. We’ll have more information on Halo 5: Guardians as it develops and you can read the full statement from 343 Industries after the jump.

     
  • Elder Scrolls Online Delayed By “About Six Months” For Next-Gen Consoles

    Elder Scrolls Online Delayed By “About Six Months” For Next-Gen Consoles

    If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the Xbox One and PS4 release of The Elder Scrolls Online, we’re afraid we have some bad news. In a statement released this morning, Bethesda have said that the difficulties in development for both consoles mean that they will “need about six months to ensure we deliver the experience our fans expect and deserve.” In the meantime, Bethesda are offering anyone who purchases and plays the PC or Mac version of ESO by the end of June the chance to transfer their characters over to either console version. Also eligible PC and Mac players will have the option to add a full digital version of ESO to PS4 or Xbox One for $20 when they transfer their characters. You can read Bethesda’s full statement after the jump and we’ll keep you updated with news about the console releases.
