If the one thing you were waiting for with the Xbox One before nabbing on was 3D Blu-ray support, you’re a strange duck. Support has come, nonetheless, and it’ll be rolling out this month. Along with this Blu-ray excellence, you’ll find a number of other oddities added to the Xbox One including "Last seen" friends list notes.
This early afternoon the PlayStation Network was knocked out by Destiny Beta traffic. Now in the later afternoon, Microsoft has notified the world that Xbox Live is down as well. As of 12:23:39 PM CST, Purchase and Content Usage was down for the count. As of 3:39:42 PM CST, Xbox Live Core Services were Limited.
Rumor has it, Activision has a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game up its sleeve, which wouldn't be surprising given the upcoming movie launch. The game has cropped up online, where details can be ascertained from its cover and achievements list, hinting at what gamers can expect.
This month two games are popping up free for Xbox Live Gold members: "Max: the Curse of Brotherhood" and "Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition." Both games are generally considered to be "indy", and they certainly play that way - but they’re bringing a fine mix of nostalgia and high-end graphics (flat as they may be) that give us pause.
The previously Xbox One exclusive "indy" title SUPER TIME FORCE is now headed to Steam for full PC action. The year 198X is ready to bring you into the future with time travel the likes of which you’ve never seen before - all with more pixelated action than you’ll be able to handle.
Behind the scenes videos with the folks creating the Call of Duty series are always interesting to behold, even if you’re not a player of the games themselves. This is because Activision, and now SledgeHammer Games, are all about showing as much as they possibly can before a game release. In this case, this means seeing actors being captured in as much detail as possible - body and face included.
