Xbox One gamers will be able to play games while they download regardless of whether they are disc-based or downloaded from Xbox Live, a source from Microsoft confirmed to Polygon earlier this week. It was already known that the Xbox One was capable of preforming such a task, it just wasn’t clear whether or not […]

Did this seriously just happen? I mean really? Hold on; I need to double check…yup! It’s a thing! That’s right: Microsoft have ditched their always online policy for their Xbox One console after hearing feedback. This effectively means that Microsoft will resign the Xbox One’s DRM policies of used games and for the console requiring […]

Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One wired headset a couple of days ago. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, I must say; it’s pretty much like the Xbox 360 headset only it’s designed to match the aesthetic of Microsoft’s next-gen console. That doesn’t mean to say it looks bad (personally I think it looks very sleek)! Microsoft […]

The incredibly popular Minecraft will be making an appearance on the Xbox One, perhaps unsurprisingly given its out of control success on the Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360. The reveal trailer boasts that Minecraft thus far has seen 1 Billion hours played, over 130 million worlds created, and more than 6 million Xbox […]

In a recent interview with Edge Magazine, Microsoft Studios corporate Vice President Phil Spencer claimed there were a ‘lot of advantages to having your content assigned to you digitally.’ The XBOX One, like the PS4, has received a lot of criticism since its reveal a few weeks ago. Mr Spencer was asked for his position […]

Rumors have been circulating for months about the Xbox 720, codenamed Durango, that it would utilize always-online DRM seen in games such as Diablo 3 and Sim City, in order to block gamers from playing used games and requiring them to be always online in order to operate the basic functions of the console. However, […]

It is still a mystery what the official name of the Xbox 720, codenamed Durango, will wind up being. It is unlikely that either of those names will wind up being the actual name of the console,  however a recent trademark filing may shed some light on another possible name for the next generation console. According to […]

Polygon’s sources claim that the Xbox 720 will have expansions to its social and connected features, and that the console apparently won’t require an always-on internet connection to […]

On May 23rd it was reported by VideoGamer that multiple Microsoft employees (both current and former; mostly former) that have disclosed details about their involvement with Microsoft’s yet-to-be announced Xbox 720 on their online CVs on LinkedIn.

It seems the long wait is now finally over! Microsoft’s next Xbox, known as the “Xbox 720″, might be at last be revealed on May 21st. I certainly anticipate it, anyway. Not long ago at the time of writing (before writing this article), I was sifting through my Twitter feed and discovered a tweet from […]

Even though there are rumours currently circulating around Microsoft’s Xbox 720, even though the exact details of the console are still up in the air (since, to my knowledge, nothing so far has been confirmed by Microsoft or Microsoft officials), I keep having to remind myself that they are just that: rumours. Despite my efforts, I seem […]
