11/13/2013, Microsoft has been putting a lot of emphasis on the Xbox One’s ability to snap multiple applications at the side of your screen to allow you to keep up with various things such as watching live TV, conducting a Skype call or keeping tabs on what your friends are doing, all while continuing to play your game in real-time. A new commercial for the Xbox One aired just yesterday once […]

11/11/2013, We heard just a few months ago from Microsoft’s senior director of product management at Xbox , Albert Panello, concerning the possibility if the Xbox One offering backwards compatibility “eventually.” It looks like Panello may have changed his tune slightly since he last spoke about the matter back in September as he recently chatted with Polygon, admitting using cloud streaming on the Xbox One for backwards compatibility of Xbox 360 […]

11/08/2013, Microsoft announced a few months ago their current CEO, Steve Ballmer, will be retiring within a year. That means the company is currently scrambling to find a new leader, and one such person that is in the running is Nokia’s former CEO, Stephen Elop.

11/08/2013, Both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One will require day-one patches as both Sony and Microsoft attempt to make their next-generation consoles perform as well as they’d like on launch day.

11/07/2013, We learned earlier this year the Xbox One would make it possible to redeem QR codes through the console’s new Kinect thanks to a tweet sent out by Xbox corporate vice president Marc Whitten, which we’re sure many of you who have input the extremely long download codes for the Xbox 360 will appreciate. It can take quite a long time to input all of those characters using only the […]
11/06/2013, Remember the other day when we reported that the team who manages Microsoft co-founder’s considerable stock in the company suggested that Microsoft should spin off their Bing search engine and Xbox gaming business?
