Xbox One's 2014 exclusives list doesn't begin and end with Titanfall, Microsoft Studios corporate vice-president Phil Spencer has assured followers on Twitter - there are Other Things on the way, lurking in the periphery of our vision like... Hmm, what's the appropriate reference point? Something from Microsoft's back catalogue, I guess. OK: like a cloaked Elite waiting to pounce.

Quote from Phil:

 

 

 

@cotugnovincenzo Had to think about this: out this year, unannounced and exclusive. Yes.

 

Boom! My hard drive is over half full and it's only been 90 days. We need that external HDD patch quick for all these damn games!

Still waiting for this as well.  Everything the XBOX 360 could do should of been what the X1 can do right from the start.

I expect E3 to be big on the games front but isn't GDC coming up first? I read a post today saying that MS is going to showoff the next version of DX, probably DX12.

Its not that easy to do when you start making everything from scratch again but that should have been a goal higher up on their list of priorities.

Yeah, I am not to bothered that these new gen consoles were missing features. They are coming, so no worries there. We got great games, which is the most important part.

If they stick to monthly updates like it sounds like then all or most of these features are going to be added before the holidays arrive.

But that's a years progress lost on real new features instead of just getting back to what we already had.

 

I'm sure they'll be adding a mix of old and new stuff but still, how can they screw up parties when they perfected it 5/6yrs ago

This is Microsoft we are talking about. They have a history of screwing up things.

It's clear to me that they rushed it, it should've had another year of work on it but saying that I expect a mix of missing and new features to come, March is adding the new twitch features for example while also fixing parties. Same could be the case going forward in the next updates.

He doesnt make it sound very promising, but at least we know there is at least one unannounced xbox exclusive coming out in 2014.

I would hope so in a debut year! If the last exclusive was in March that'd be pretty worrying. Doing it from memory isn't easy with such a busy release calendar :laugh:

Seems like Sony and MS decided to rush to market and it resulted in two consoels that lacked many features of the previous versions.

Again, its a result of starting over. They couldnt just port features for whatever reason. The reason they took this hit was mostly due to the fact that the 360 OS was simply too limited to carry over to the next gen and offer MS the flexibility they wanted. Moving to a windows 8 core opens up a lot of options, but it means they have to suffer this period of severe lack in features.

Sony made a similar choice for the ps4, sacrificing many features of the ps3 in order to build a more robust OS for the future.

I'm not talking about literally copying and pasting code, but they didn't think to include parties and have them behave like they did before? They've stripped back the OS to barebones almost and only worked on the new stuff exclusive to X1. And yeah, this is an issue for both, I'm not picking on MS/X1 here. Removing CD/MP3 etc was a foolish move.

I hope Microsoft leverages some of its IPs and creates a Minesweeper MMO for Xbox One.

I think they'll have more exclusives, this is just for unannounced exclusives.

 

I think they are talking about Halo 2 Anniversary, because it was a voice actor who leaked that info and the game hasn't been announced yet.

Plus they said a halo game was coming in 2014 and its not Halo 5.

 

I would be extremely disappointed if this is the only unannounced exclusive the Xbox One has coming in 2014.. but I wouldn't be surprised.

As the Xbox One HDD is a 5400RPM SATA 2 drive, I wonder if an external USB3 SSD will be faster.

I wonder how many of these exclusives are fresh new IP's versus (insert game title here) part 12.

Don't get me wrong, not all sequels are bad. But sometimes you got to give an IP a break.

Phil says they have invested a cool $$$-billion-$$$ into games alone for next gen.

Hopefully it nets a range of smaller, mid, AAA, and games with heavy Kinect integration...

Yes, it would.

 

Boggles the mind how both PS4 and XO put SATA 2 drives in their machines, (The PS4 even more so since they allow users to change the drive, resulting in SSD's running at half speed). They're supposed to be cutting edge and last for years to come. SATA 2 just seems so old. Why not 3?

I haven't been able to find conclusive evidence to suggest both consoles use SATA2, I know people have upgraded their PS4 hard drives with SATA3 drives and SSD drives and seen a noticeable improvement so I doubt that it uses SATA2.. But same as the Xbox One because SATA3 has been a standard for a few years.

All the console makers recycle the pretty much same IP's over and over as well as add new ones. But people are not only asking for new, but they are asking for sequels.

      You can earn these Destiny 2: Trials of Osiris rewards from October 23 to 27
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Destiny 2 hosts a Trials of Osiris event where teams of three compete for access to The Lighthouse. The Lighthouse promises Pinnacle rewards that boost you closer to the current Power Level cap.

      The player vs. player competition also grants other items if you get three, five, or seven wins. However, you'll have to get seven wins in a row, without a loss, if you want to grab the Pinnacle gear from The Lighthouse. You can take a look at the Trials of Osiris rewards from October 23 to 27 below.

      Three wins: The Scholar legendary scout rifle Five wins: Exile's Curse legendary fusion rifle Seven wins: Mark of the Exile legendary armor Flawless: Legs of the Exile legendary armor Trials of Osiris starts at 1 PM EDT on Friday and lasts until 1 PM EDT on Tuesday. You can use the Passage of Mercy from Saint-14 because it forgives one loss if you're aiming for Flawless. If you manage to get seven wins in a row, you'll have to manually select The Lighthouse location displayed in the Crucible menu to obtain the Pinnacle reward. This involves jumping across a few platforms and opening the chest where Saint-14 and Osiris are standing.

      Xbox Live issue preventing Xbox One and Windows 10 users from launching their games [Update]
      by Abhay Venkatesh



      If you were looking to play some games today, heading into the weekend, and fired up a game on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC only to find that you are unable to access it, you’re not alone. Xbox Support just acknowledged on Twitter that it is aware of an issue with users being unable to access games due to some issues with Xbox Live. The company is actively investigating the issue.

      Depending on some users’ reports on Twitter, it looks like trying to launch games returns a "The person who bought this needs to sign in" message, which likely is due to some authentication issues with Xbox Live. The status page for the service notes that there are issues with ‘Purchase and Content Usage’ that affects launching games or apps. The problem is affecting Xbox One and Windows 10 devices. There is no word on a possible ETA for the restoration of the service.

      Those interested can keep an eye on Twitter or the Xbox Live Status page for updates for more information. Additionally, you can also choose to request for a notification by signing in on the status page and having the site send an Xbox Live notification or text message.

      Update 1: The support account has posted an update on Twitter noting that users should now be able to access their games. However, the status page still notes problems with buying "downloadable" items and launching games.

      Update 2: The Xbox Live Status page has also been updated to reflect that all the issues have been fixed.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 20241.1005 without any changes
      by Rich Woods



      Two days after Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 20241 to the Dev channel, it's releasing a cumulative update. The new build number is 20241.1005, and according to Microsoft, it's sole reason for existence is to test the servicing pipelines. According to the blog post, there are no fixes.

      This is the third cumulative update in the Dev channel in less than two weeks, and all of them have been simply to test the servicing pipeline. This is a normal practice, of course, because Microsoft does have to be able to service its updates. It doesn't seem like something that would be quite as necessary in the Dev channel, being that the Dev channel is strictly for the rs_prerelease branch.

      Of course, this could also mean that the firm is prepping a version for the Beta channel. While the Dev channel isn't tied to a specific release, the Beta channel is. Being that the Windows 10 October 2020 Update, or version 20H2, was released earlier this week, something new should be coming to the Beta channel soon.

      It's unclear what's coming though, because there have been rumors that 21H1 has been canceled in favor of the Windows 10X RTM, something that was originally supposed to happen alongside 20H2 before there were delays. It's also possible that there might still be a 21H1 update, although it could be more similar to the enablement package strategy that we've seen from 20H2 and 19H2. we should find out soon.

      The Surface Duo is already $200 off at the Microsoft Store
      by João Carrasqueira

      Microsoft's highly-anticipated dual-screen Android phone finally released last month, and much to the dismay of some fans, it came with a high $1,399 price tag. That can be a bit hard to swallow considering the phone is using some less than stellar internals, like a Snapdragon 855 chipset without 5G support and just 6GB of RAM.

      If you've been holding out for a deal on the Surface Duo, today might be your day. Over on the Microsoft Store, the Surface Duo is on sale for $200 below its usual price, which means it now starts at slightly more reasonable $1,199 for the 128GB model. The 256GB variant is also discounted to by $200, so it costs $1,399.

      In addition to the Snapdragon 855 chipset and 6GB of RAM, the specs of the Surface Duo include a 3,577mAh battery and a single 11MP camera that serves as both a rear- and front-facing camera depending on the device's posture. Evidently, it has two 5.6-inch AMOLED screens with Surface Pen support, and they add up to an 8.1-inch display in the typical 3:2 aspect ratio of Surface devices. The Surface Duo is a very thin device, with each half being just 4.8mm thin.

      You can buy the Surface Duo from the Microsoft Store here. Best Buy also has a $200 discount on the phone without activation.
