Machinima to Launch Exclusively on Xbox One Worldwide on Nov. 22

Take a look at the above video that shows how Machima will use Xbox One Snap to provide a great Snap experience they’re calling “Machinima Wingman.”

This blog post from Matthew Cohen has more details about Machinima launching exclusively on Xbox One.

 

Xbox One By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • James Lawrence Murphy II

    Nice

  • LarZen

    Larry, do you know it it’s for the US only or will it be for everyone?

  • Rare_defect

    If you read the title it will tell you.

    • LarZen

      There goes my crazy eyes again…thx Rare_defect :)

  • Dennis Crosby

    That’s cool

  • ungeheier

    Cool, but what will it cost?

    • ThtJstHapnd

      Apps are free….

      • ungeheier

        So…. Netflix is free? Hulu Plus is free? HBO to Go is free? MLB is free? Do I need to go on with the list? You’re assuming that its free. Unless you’ve got an official link that says its free…

        • EldritchWarlord

          Yeah, the apps are free. The subscription service they get content from isn’t necessarily free.
          The Xbox 360 Machinima app and service is free though.

          • ungeheier

            look at 1:49 of the video. Pause it. Top right corner there’s a button that says PURCHASE.

        • ThtJstHapnd

          Ive downloaded all those for free on 360. Whats your point? Please go on with the list. I stated apps are free. I have not been charged once to download an app. When have you? Show me the app on the XboxLive Marketplace where an app costs money.

          • ungeheier

            Stop being a moron. You CANT use the apps I listed unless you pay a FEE to do so. You know this. I know you know this. Stop being a moron.

          • ThtJstHapnd

            Did I say use? Have I ever said use? Your the one looking like a moron. I know what I said and I know that I was right.

            FYI I do use all those apps for free, I have family members that have accounts to all those services.

          • ungeheier

            Moron. Where’s the button to ignore people on disqus?

          • ThtJstHapnd

            Seriously. Why am I a moron? You asked what it will cost and I replied that apps are free. Where am I in the wrong? You posted a crappy reply that was meant to be funny or hurtful and failed. Don’t get angry with me that you replied with a pathetic attempt at a joke.

  • Timothy Monica

    What is the Sexual content rating for this game? Just trying to figure out if I should buy Xbox or Playstation, I think both are great, actually like Xbox more, but Rise has Partial Nudity in it and this game has sexual content. I wish I knew what all this meant, but seriously I know some will laugh for saying you won’t play a game with those things in it, but I don’t. So is Xbox worth getting at launch? Should I get a Playstation?

    • SeraphTC

      It doesn’t matter what platform you get, both platforms will have games that contain this sort of content, and both platforms will have games that don’t. If you don’t want to play those games, then don’t play them – there will be plenty of other games to play (at launch) that will be suitable for you (on both platforms).

      • Timothy Monica

        Yea, I understand, I am thinking Playstation then, because of games like Killzone and Knack and what not. Thanks.

        Just tough, cause I am a long time Xbox fan! lol I guess i have to suck it up and not care about sides.
        lol

        • Timothy Monica

          @LarZen:disqus I like your posting, it does seem disturbing, and I hope your right about things, Don’t want to leave Xbox for anything really.
          Thanks for not completely flaming me though, and answering to the best of your ability. I can take dressing up like an idiot. I hope with Ryse it comes down to the clothing, just makes me wonder since it also says sexual content. We will see, I can wait after launch and all to see. In the future there is always Halo and Titanfall. Woot!

          • Timothy Monica

            ThtJstHapnd

            Yea, I don’t have anything against violence as much as nudity. So I know that was some confusion but it’s the truth.

          • trent82

            So you don’t care if a human body gets grinded into a pulp as long as you don’t see any nipples while it happens? Ok.

          • Timothy Monica

            Ok, thanks for all replies, I made my choice! Take care everybody.

          • Flawless

            maybe he has a hair trigger.

            double entendre,dont even ask me how.

          • Andy

            Not getting all flamy.. but it’s worth asking.

            Violence = OK. Naked flesh = OMGtheWorldIsBurning!

            Seriously??

        • trent82

          There will be plenty of family friendly games on Xbox One at launch. LEGO Marvel, Forza, Peggle 2, and others.

    • roozbeh, again

      I say xbox, playstation contains much more nudity and such in their games eg beyond and heavy rain.
      The last of us isn’t exactly a childs game

    • jdp12

      probably the worst place to ask this lol, so many pro-Xbox guys here

      • Nick Peck

        It is a site for the Xbox no? Wonder why there are so many pro xboxers here? Wonder why there are so many pro ps people on the ps blog??? lol…really?

        • jdp12

          Obviously, I’m sure there are much better places to ask

      • NarcoSleepy

        Not really. Some of the harshest criticism of XBox and Microsoft can be found in the comments of this blog.

    • Nathanzz

      That’s the best part of Ryse. You can totally see her partial.

    • 1st_Inquisitor

      To be honest, if your buying a console to play with kids around, you could choose either (in terms of less nudity). However, I feel like kids would love the kinect feature more on the x1 cause developers will actually program for it since every X1 comes with it.

      Nonetheless, there are games like Crimson Dragon on the X1 and Plants vs Zombies (with a special feature on the x1) along with Forza, peggle and a lego game.

  • evilfangs .

    I find it a bit funny how Microsoft has partnered with Machinmia, the same company which has been taking pot shots and digs at the X1 for months. They have just been laughing at the console.

    • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

      if MS (or any company) made business decisions based off of who made fun of them on the playground they would never have any partners. Companies accept that decisions are made for financial gain on both fronts and not on who’s “feelings” are hurt.

    • ThtJstHapnd

      Machinima is a company. The company did not take pop shots, a person that works for them did. It’s not funny that MS is partnered with them. What’s funny is the people that did take pop shots at them now have to shut their mouth as their company they work for is partnered with them. Also look why this is on XboxOne and not PS4. This wouldn’t be possible on the PS4.

      • Death Dealer

        This is just excellent for people that need to look up a guide on the fly.

        • ThtJstHapnd

          Exactly. I will use it sometimes. It will still take skill to complete the game. It’s not doing what PS4 is doing where someone can play the game for you. Now that’s sad.

          I don’t know how many games I had a laptop sitting next to me finding all the hidden packages and items. Now I can just snap it to the side.

      • evilfangs .

        A company is represented by everyone, including the two people in this video who took the pot shots. Adam and Bruce are the face of Machinmia and thus the company.

        What I’m saying is I find it funny that the people who hate the X1 are the exact same people who now are forced to deal with the X1.

    • Morris ヅ

      they like having a laugh thats why there so popular there funny guys

  • barackshobama

    WORLD…..WIDE!!

    • Ronald Alubalu

      sure just rub it in

      • ungeheier

        WORLD

  • Death Dealer

    As soon as I get my CoD:Ghosts bundle from Amazon I’m buying DR3 off the marketplace. It looks great and this Machinima guide functionality is a great feature.

  • laserlord

    Like the PS4, “next-gen” games are looking very much like PC games with the graphics settings turned down several notches. Not impressed.

    • Miles Taven

      Christ all some people care about is fancy graphics and nothing else.

      • Ian wakefield

        Yeah, don’t really know what’s happened to people now
        Graphics make everything apparently.
        What happened to the gameplay? the story?

  • Morris ヅ

    now this is the shiz im liking with the snap feature great work xbox and machinima, lovly idea av that ps4 haha.

  • tigertomspill

    it a great time to be a gamer no matter what console you are getting..

  • Nathanzz

    Maybe we should start calling these snappable apps “Snapps”.

    • roozbeh, again

      Genius!

    • todd Wright

      you! iloveu

    • avi

      haha, that’s actually perfect.
      ms, do this.

  • roozbeh, again

    Machinima on xbox one only?

    Money is more powerful than ego it seems.

    • 1st_Inquisitor

      No, its because of the snap feature bro. If snap was on ps4, it would probably be on ps4 too.

      • Death Dealer

        PS4 doesn’t have a virtualization system and probably never will.

        • 1st_Inquisitor

          Thats true.

  • Ian wakefield

    Cya.

  • david_hoyland

    Next gen hand holding!

    • Din Taylor

      It is kind of though if you can snap skype, internet explorer (wish it was chrome). It can be very useful. Dark Souls was great when you went to the forums, the community was great so Dark Souls 2 would be awesome.

      • Morris ヅ

        lets hope google brings chrome to it

  • Lucas Sanches Cestari

    i’m following machinima on youtube and they seems to be talking alot of bad things of xbox one… i’m impressed they will be available only for xbox one…

    • 1st_Inquisitor

      It is since X1 has a snap feature, otherwise the PS4 could have had it. However, I dont see sony adding snap in the ps4 anytime soon, or even later in the line since snap takes some extra ram to run smoothly.

    • Daniel Jassé

      really? there is a machinima app on 360

    • Morris ヅ

      `thats what they do they “Banter” there funny people.

  • Lucas Sanches Cestari

    hmmm. machinima was speaking bad things about xbox one only 2 days ago and now they are exclusive for xbox one… wow…

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      so it is you that make everyone lag ! ;-)

  • xbox_gamer

    dumbest reason for a game system who fnk cares

    • rkm80

      You’re right. See ya.

  • xbox_gamer

    what next a pizza hut app

    • BountyBob

      Good idea, I’d rather it was Domino’s but Pizza Hut would do.

    • Dylan

      The 360 already has one

  • Kinectamaniac

    The video front still picture has the word, “wingman”.

    Makes me sad it’s been so long we’ve gotten a Wing Commander game.

    How bout it Xbox? A Wing Commander game for the Xbox One?

  • xbox_gamer

    Every time Xbox announces something I get closer to Ps4. I just bought a Ps3 again a month out from the new systems . I re downloaded all my PS3 games again and Ps3 / plus puts 360 to shame.

    • xbox_gamer

      I have every system and 2 360’s but looks like its wiiu /ps4 for sure

      • Daniel Jassé

        dont be daft these new features look amazing! whats not to like?

      • rkm80

        We get it. Goodbye.

    • http://ryan.snook.cc/ Snook

      Bye

      • Din Taylor

        Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    • rkm80

      See ya.

    • Guest

      $0N¥ PauperStation trolls are trying too hard. Funny as hell.

      • MrRadiolips

        Real gamers play all systems.

    • Knives_and_Faux

      It’s so good you felt the need to shout it from an Xbox blog rather than playing the thing.

  • avi

    pretty cool feature.
    this should be helpful as heck on places i get stuck.

    • Din Taylor

      Yeah it is pretty cool unfortunately for certain people on this blog MS is forcing them to download the app and use it.

  • Daniel Jassé

    yeh i agree i recently put the latest tomb raider in for a spin and was like wow even 8yrs in the games are looking stunning and thats with sod all ram!

  • Ted Summers

    “Oh SNAP!” How cool is that! Killing them with those features!

  • Ted Summers

    Bet I won’t be seeing this report by Gamespot or IGN! :-) If they do you can bet it will be their app that’s showcased.

  • Paul Thwaites

    This is the sort of thing I need right now with GTA V, having to move from 360 to PC every so offten to check where next hidden item is and back again is a pain the the arse lol

    • gtx

      i recommend Microsoft windows 8.1 for pc

      i don´t recommend play games on PC

      ——————

      PC have best hardware experence ,but low games sales just like GTA IV

      than xbox360 & PS3

      http://www.vgchartz.com/game/25503/grand-theft-auto-iv/

      • MrRadiolips

        If you dont recommend playing games on PC you are not a gamer.

        • gtx

          we´re console gamers

          • MrRadiolips

            Gamers play all systems.

          • gtx

            pc games vs consoles gamers are different

          • MrRadiolips

            Thats why we play all systems.

          • gtx

            we play consoles only ,not play on pc ,thats why we are different

          • MrRadiolips

            Not a real gamer.

          • gtx

            we are not real gamer,but we are pure gamer

          • Dylan

            What an asinine comment

          • gtx

            peace walk :)

          • MrRadiolips

            aaaaand another one!!

        • roozbeh, again

          Well, historically GTA sucks on PC. Take IV as an example

    • Luos Deifidom

      that actually is the first idea i’ve seen that has made me even think about the XB360 (or PS3) using the HDMI input at the back of XB1

      • Paul Thwaites

        lol glad i could help :D

  • evilfangs .

    I’m not the one hating the product. I like both the X1 and PS4. Yeah I like the X1 more now without all that stuff it first announced.

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    day 3 here

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    i wouldn’t mind that at all.

  • Ivanx360xpira

    If they had released it sooner and for Xbox 360 it would prevent me of buying two new controllers after playing Dark Souls :)…hope DS 2 come to Xbox One…also, I like to hunt achievements and this app will be really really useful…can’t wait for nov 22!!!

    • Morris ヅ

      its coming next gen.

      • Ivanx360xpira

        Great!!then I must prepare to die again, but now with Xbox One…

        • Morris ヅ

          i see it some were being confirmed google it just in case.

  • xPutNameHerex

    It would be pretty much up to Rich Stone to get an app out there all on his own. I doubt he could get one onto the official Xbox One marketplace, but if the rumors that Windows 8 apps could be playable on the Xbox One with some tweeking are true, then that’s a possible way it could be snuck on there.

  • MrRadiolips

    Please dont call yourself a gamer if you only play on one machine. You are just a fan.

    • Luos Deifidom

      i dont see preferring one over the other as a disqualification to being labeled a gamer, how ever hating on another console for the likes we see all over these websites then yeah that’d do it in my opinion.

      and that wasnt me down voting you

    • DarnedNut

      I choose to call myself a gamer if I want to, I play games so I am a gamer.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      owning more than 1 console is like having 2 pc to try game with different graphic card…. a gamer is about playing game not owning stuff.

      • MrRadiolips

        Being a gamer is about having different experiences and you do that by having more than one system.

        • beardyman3218

          No, a gamer is someone who plays video games regardless of how many systems they own, people who say owning all systems is being a gamer are just showing off.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            it’s like saying the world champion of donkey kong that can actually play untill he get memory out of the chip is not a gamer because he only play this arcade game from the 80s…. (did i say go watch the king of kong ? yes i did)

        • gtx

          you pc gamers conception is showing how power pc hardware have and how best graphic cards you owen & how mods you played & how much money $$$ you spent…also how many PC games you deleted after you only did try once..

        • Kiwiholden

          Most games are on them all so your a tool

          • MrRadiolips

            Still different experiences with different systems.Also i wasnt rude so thanks for making yourself look and seem ignorant…bravo.

          • Kiwiholden

            Troll……

          • MrRadiolips

            Yup im a complete troll compared to you. lol

    • roozbeh, again

      No, you must understand the concept of $$$. Some can’t offered to own all systems, but they are still gamers.

      • MrRadiolips

        It really doesnt have anything to do with money..if people can afford an expensive system once prices decrease a few years from now it gives them time buy a used system if they are attracted to a game that their original one doesnt support. Not trying to make people think that im trying to be a D-bag…i guess i came across the wrong way.

        • roozbeh, again

          Well, they might not even like the other systems games.

          But really except for a few wealthy and hardcore gamers, no one would care about another system.

          Personally though I can understand what your saying, I have all 3 as well, and all provide great experiences.

    • Kiwiholden

      Loser. I bet you play heaps of games for a short time each never really getting into any but thinking you’re some how better than everyone else

      • MrRadiolips

        No i build gaming computers and custom consoles.

        • Kiwiholden

          Custom consoles… How retarded

          • MrRadiolips

            I dont feel like having an immature argument with someone who is obviously a teenager or lacks intelligence. Plus yes…i build custom console systems.

    • boe2

      How arrogant of me. I considered myself a gamer, but I Am Not Worthy of that title :(

      I wish I was like you, a proud member of the true pure blood gamer race. Then I wouldn’t have to merely pretend that I’m enjoying my games.

    • Morris ヅ

      A gamer is a person who plays games full stop , stfu.

      • TheScienceEnthusiast1130

        Exactly. :)

      • paul rolland

        A gamer understands that every consoles as great games

  • travis1987

    nice

  • Daryl Aiken

    This looks cool.

  • beardyman3218

    Is Netflix and the Sky go app going to be available in UK day one?

  • quinten488

    PS4 well dominate

    • Guest

      Paupers will hang!

    • Death Dealer

      Erm…wEll dominate. Oh those poor PS fanboys, can’t even pay for proper schooling.

      • quinten488

        more preorders, u mad?

  • boe2

    Something completely unrelated: When I went to claim my free Halo 3 game, I noticed in the Dashboard that Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is also free for Gold members. However, this promotion is shown prominently on the frontpage. I had to dig down in the menus to find the Halo 3 promotion.

    Now, this is a pretty neat surprise since ITSP has been on my “to play” list for a while, and I am certainly not complaining about getting more than 2 free games in a month, but I’m a bit puzzled:

    – Why does the media/this blog only mention Halo 3 while the dashboard actually hides Halo 3 in favor of ITSP? I would guess you would want to put Halo 3 in the spotlight; possibly both.

    – Why can’t I find them both under same “Games for Gold” menu?. Right now I got 3 links on my dashboard that give me free games: 1 linking to Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, 1 linking to some mediocre F2P games (though I’m guessing that’s where you’ll put WoT) and 1 linking to Might&Magic and Halo 3. Can you PLEASE make 1 decicated menu for all of those?

    While I’m typing this, I was thinking: Is it a regional thing? With ITSP being a regional promotion that you can’t list together with the worldwide Halo 3 promotion maybe?

    • Death Dealer

      I think that’s a regional thing indeed. I can’t see ITSP being free (but I already bought it in the past). It’s definitely not part of GwG.
      I’m still getting errors trying to download Halo 3 though…

    • ungeheier

      It’s $10 in the US.

  • Ivanx360xpira

    off topic…but here is a funny thing about this console war from a perspective of a latin american: According to some sites (also checked it in PlayStaion official blog) Sony announced the price of PS4 in Brazil, and it will cost R$4000,00 (equivalent of U$2000), funny enough the Xbox One (which I already pre-ordered) will cost R$2000 (equivalent of U$1000). That is, in US PS4 is U$100 cheaper, in Brazil and probably Latin America it is U$1000 expensive…It´s hard to believe…

    WTF is happening with this world for Christ sake!!I think the best thing to do is to stick to the Snes again…

    • Guest

      LOL @ PoS4 price there. That VGChartz tard that lives there is going to pay…

    • roozbeh, again

      You think that is expensive, here in Iran it is 3000 USD

      • Ivanx360xpira

        With 4000 brazilian real I can travel to US, take a photo with Mickey, buy a PS4, 3ds and eat a cheeseburger. People here até saying PS4: press shift 4.

    • Lucas Sanches Cestari

      yes… a good thing is that i already have the xbox 360 sooo… i was going to buy the xbox one even if the ps4 were cheaper than xbox one xD, now we can laugh at sonysts here in brazil ^^

  • Ivanx360xpira

    I don´t think so, even with all taxes and stuff this price is at least hilarious. Truth is Sony are f* up in Brazil and blaming taxes and import tariff . Better people here wake up and boycott this abusive pricing of Sony. For me, it´s all good cause I´ll go with Xone (incredible as it seems, considering all taxes Xbox One is priced correctly here).

  • Brandon K

    hope this is free

  • Voreo Sabrae

    Arby n the Chief is over, Machinima is lame now
