    The Xbox One achievement snap app is great! On a side note I don’t know why people complain. I don’t mind when the show goes a little off topic with animal or food stories. It’s always game focused overall.

    Xbox One now supports game trials for ID@Xbox games. Great news. (Article on eurogamer)

    Thank you for listening to us devs and consumers MS.
    Those integrated trials were great on the Xbox 360 and not having that option on the One was a bit disappointing. But I’m glad have that option again now.
    If you want to make the new games more visible, I have a suggestion.
    You need a form of rotating “What’s New” Live Tile.right there on the Store Home Dash that users can interact with (with the right analog stick) and I would suggest talking to the Windows/Xbox OS people to make that happen. I’d suggest keeping games that have appeared over the period of about a month or two on there. It’s sort of like how Steam has it on its storefront. It’s a quick and easy way to browse the new games (yet they have so much more than consoles do, so it’s still drowned out). I’do the same thing for current sales with the price right there on the Tile. Everything right there on the Dash, no need to load the Store or anything else.

    Still no news on the next system update?

  • Death Dealer

    Told you those Xbox One controller buttons don’t make sense.
    Stephen Totilo ran away with the idea at Kotaku.
