Responding to a fans question Mike Ybarra has come out and said that the ... Read More »

We replaced Snap to improve multitasking, reduce ... Read More »

And the Microsoft man confirmed that there would be a change in how Xboxers will be getting to the home screen… @MegavoltService ... Read More »
It was just a matter of time – now for the six people who bought ReCore, prepare to for a HDR update. The announcement came – where else? – on Twitter, where both Microsoft Studios’ Shannon Loftis and Xbox’s Mike Ybarra both confirmed that the game will get a graphical upgrade when played on Xbox One S. https://twitter.com/XboxQwik/status/803050270200467456 HDR – high dynamic range – gives greater colour and contrast to images, essentially making them a whole lot richer and pleasing on the eye.

This is a feature where you can find like minded people playing the same games as you by searching for and joining Clubs that interest you.

Well, according to Mike Ybarra, the Director of Program Management at Xbox this has now been amended. You can now join up to 25 Clubs in Preview ... Read More »
The Backwards Compatibility programme is a technical marvel - we're huge fans and grateful that so much effort is poured into this area by Microsoft. It's pure fan service, too. Just having over 250 Xbox 360 games - including many of our favourites - available to play on Xbox One is great. Some Back Compat games run flawlessly, and some even better than they did on 360. Some, though, aren't quite up to scratch. But with the latest console update this week, some of those games have received a boost. It's time to get technical. When things get hectic, with lots ...
