So is the new Borderlands sort of a lowest common denominator?

I had a thought the other day. Kinect language is suppose to be localized from what I understand. What if you're in oneguide and the show you want to watch has a foreign film title.

Yea, it's going to be a while till next gen dies. These companies are trying to maximize profits. After playing on next gen systems I can't even play old gen no more.

Is Outlast a game that was a PS+ game on the PS4? I think that was one of the games my PS4 downloaded last night after I had upgraded the hard drive.

What is Sixty Second Shooter Prime?

Sixty Second Shooter Prime is a twin stick shooter. Here is a video of previous version of the game.

Thanks!!

I found a video of the new one.

For only $5 I think I will pick this up. Or will that be a mistake and this will end up being a Games with Gold title in a few months?

Yes, Outlast was a PS+ game on PS4. I didn't care for it. It had the look and gameplay mechanics of a 90s PC game to me.

Sixty Second Shooter Prime looks like its worth $5.

Apparently there is are demos for Thief and Trials out on the Xbox One store.
spid's Avatar spid 09:52 AM 06-19-2014
The devs of Sixty Second Shooter Prime did a Ask Me Anything Q&A on reddit. You can read the full exchange below, but here are a few highlights for me.

* They had a real positive experience working with ID@Xbox program.

* Three people (one working part time) worked to bring the game over to the Xbox One. The game was originally created by one person for Chrome

* It took three months to port the game to the Xbox One.

* They would have weekly leaderboard if Microsoft supported which they currently do not.

$399 = X1+thank you for purchasing

There is nothing better than walking into a room and having instant and multiple media channels (snap features) on demand by just saying a few words...definitely worth $30. Forget the great free game.

Well I hope so, we just got these things. But I think you meant last gen which indeed is going to be a while. Although , again, this is nothing new at all.

It's going to be a lot longer than the last transition for sure.
michaeltscott's Avatar michaeltscott 01:54 PM 06-19-2014
I have no problem playing games on my last gen machines. There are some games that I continue to play regularly which aren't available on new gen consoles (Rock Band 3 and Rocksmith 2014) and I have a pile of Xbox and PS3 DDs purchased on sale that I fully intend to plow through .

Welcome to the Xbox One July update preview! 1407 brings a new feature that might get the Achievement hunter in you excited, as well the ability for some regions to choose your spoken language model to fit your preference. We're also doing some early work to enable new ways to offer content via bundles and compilation discs, and a special Game DVR clip on SmartGlass can now get your stamp of approval with a Like.


Key features in the July update preview:
◾Snap Mode for Achievements. You can now track your Achievement progress in real time without ever leaving the game. You can also keep track of important Achievements by moving them to the top, or get the edge on any tough Achievement with a new feature that will scan the web for you and deliver relevant tips and strategy content right to your TV. Tell us what you think in the new Achievements App forum!

◾Double-tap to Snap: You've been able to switch between main and snapped apps with a quick double-tap of the Xbox button, but now you can pull up the Snap Center using the same press if you don't already have an app snapped. Perfect for pulling up that new Achievement App!

◾Choice of Spoken Language. In New Zealand, Ireland, or Austria? You'll now be able to select voice control using English or German models from other countries. Are you an expat living in an English speaking county? You can now choose any of the English models to fit you!

◾Like Game DVR Clips in SmartGlass. With the latest SmartGlass beta, we're adding the ability to "like" your favorite Game DVR clips, as well as your friend's Activity Feed posts. So go ahead, give that special moment a like!

We'll be rolling out this update for the preview audience over the next few days in waves, with one wave on 6/19, and the other following shortly after. So get ready! For the more detailed notes for each update, please check out the Current Update widget below with a link to the update post. For more news from the Xbox Team, check out the Announcements forum.

IMHO, they're loading way too much stuff on SmartGlass. All of the things that you can do for the Xbox 360 at the website should be do-able for the Xbox One on the website as well, because that's the way that I'm used to doing those things. Also I don't like SmartGlass; for me, it's a really unappealing and awkward-to-use app.

Nothing is, thanks to MS and Sony deliberately preventing it. But if there was a game everyone could play together, regardless of platform, it would sell a ton solely based on that.
I was thinking this game needs Cross-platform play when I was playing the Alpha. With it being on all 4 platforms it would be nice to own one copy and play with everyone and not just a portion of people.

Correct me If I'm wrong, but I've been double-tapping the X button to switch between the snapped and main app for months. In fact I did it last night again, without the update. Are they adding something new?

After this update, if you have nothing snapped and double hit the xbox button it will snap the Snap Center. Most likely a menu system of what you can add in the snapped screen. Its mostly for the people who don't want/can't use the voice features to bring snapped apps up.

Yeah, there's no way I'm buying multiple copies of a game.

I don't see how this is sustainable....until they sort this out, every MP focused game is going to underperform.

Thank you for this information. I was wondering how the hell to switch between apps. I'm sure there must be a voice command, but I've tried "Xbox Swap" and "Xbox Switch" and probably a few other commands in between some choice curse words when I've wanted to change the snapped app to the big window. Can't wait to give this a try tonight.

"Xbox Switch" will do the trick. So will the double tap xbox button.
Remember just say "Xbox Switch" not "Xbox switch TV" or any other such phrases.

Hmmmmm...for some reason, I don't think "Xbox, Switch" works for me, but I'll give that a go tonight as well.

I purchased Sixty Second Shooter Prime last night and had some fun with it. It reminds me of the Robotron type games with the dual joy sticks.
Although it is certainly a mouthfull to say for Kinect to start the game.

Any love for the new surface pro 3 here?


Very surprizing since AVS is normally ahead of the game.


Picked one up on Saturday for next to nothing thanks to trade-in deals. Incredible piece of hardware.


All Android and Apple tablets are officially garbage now, going on a few years, this should be the last nail in the coffin. Fire sale those old worthless toys before its too late.


Anyone get TitanFall up and running on one yet?
