Sounds about right. I dunno if they'll ever let HP or dell use the word Xbox in the model name, more likely they have a certification program that lets them plop a sticker on it. I don't think they...

The Official Xbox One thread...

You can already hack the old WMC into 10, but I doubt that'll apply to a locked down Xbox.

They wouldn't have to build a monolothic replacement though, most of the WMC functionality is already...

I bought one of those lumia 635s for $50, it's surprisingly good. Way better than any android phone I've used that cost a lot more. Very responsive, lots of neat features....I could use it every day...

WMC is a legacy app that hasn't been actively developed for several years now, it's dead. Best case scenario is some sort of modern app replacement.

You're not getting it...the Xbox one is a PC. Everything dx12 does for PC it does for Xbox.

The PS4 can absolutely stream DTS-MA and TrueHD right now off blu ray, and I'm sure the xbox could as well if Microsoft wanted it to. Regardless, object based audio codecs don't make sense for games,...
