PUBG on PS4 is coming, but it isn’t good enough for Sony yet

Though PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds launched on Xbox One in something of a rough state, it's been enjoying a lot of success thus far. Shortly after it released last month, Microsoft and the PUBG Group revealed that it had sold 1 million copies in a mere 48 hours.

The Microsoft Kinect is now really dead

Actually, the Microsoft Kinect accessory “technically” died October 2017 when Microsoft declared that it would no longer be producing any new units.

Now, however, even if you could still buy a Kinect, you might no longer be able to use it, as Microsoft has also discontinued the production of the Kinect Adapter which is essential in making the Kinect work on modern Xbox One consoles.

Kodi finds it way back home, now on Xbox One

Kodi finds it way back home, now on Xbox One

Things have come full circle and Kodi is finally back on the console that started it all. Kodi was formerly known as XBMC, short for the Xbox Media Center, before it had to change names to avoid trademark lawsuits. The open source media center solution has, since then, grown to embrace a multitude of platforms, except, ironically, the latest Xbox generation. That is no longer the case as Kodi is now available, at least for some, on the Xbox One, turning the gaming console into an even more serious all-in-one entertainment solution.

It's been a little more than a week since PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds launched on PC, and now it's time for the first post-launch update for the game. Developer Bluehole has shared a list of patch notes for this new update, which is simply being called "PC 1.0 Update #1."

Xbox Game Pass: 5 reasons to give it a try

Microsoft is rounding out the year by adding a bunch of games to Xbox Game Pass, a service that allows you on demand access to a library of titles. Though it's similar to PlayStation Now, Xbox Game Pass is still in its infancy as a service, so what's the benefit of signing up for Microsoft's service when Sony's own is available on PC and therefore doesn't require a PlayStation 4? There were already a few reasons why you might give Xbox Game Pass a shot over PlayStation Now, and Microsoft just turned it into an even more tempting proposition.

Xbox One keyboard, mouse support is really coming

This is one of those things that you’re almost 200% sure is going to happen but is only a question of “when”. Microsoft itself has more or less confirmed that there is a huge amount of interest if not demand for keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox One consoles but it hasn’t exactly put that down in quotable writing. That was until the company’s Polish office accidentally revealed Microsoft’s plans to create a new “Xbox Master Race”.

That PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is doing well on Xbox One isn't really much of a shock.
