Minecraft: Xbox One Edition Hitting Retail Shelves November 18th

Oct 01, 2014 - 2:40 PM - by dgstorm

Fans of the Minecraft game who are anxiously awaiting its arrival on the Xbox One should mark November 18th on their calendars. That's the day Microsoft officially announced as the retail launch date for the game. Here's a quote with the full Microsoft press release,

Know any budding creators who haven’t upgraded to Minecraft: Xbox One Edition yet? If so, we’ll help you cross one item off your holiday shopping list. Following the digital debut of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition earlier this month, we’re excited to announce the smash hit game will also hit store shelves beginning on Nov. 18 for $19.99 USD.

Minecraft fans can easily transfer their Xbox 360 creations and most of their downloadable content to the Xbox One Edition and play in up to 36 times larger worlds. And, with the widest range of downloadable content on console, players will never run out of new worlds to explore with four player split-screen on one console or up to eight players over Xbox Live. It’s Minecraft any way you please this holiday— whether buying the disc, downloading directly onto your Xbox One, or grabbing a digital download code or gift card from participating retailers. And to all you veteran Minecrafters who've already been playing Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, don't forget you can digitally upgrade for $4.99.*

*The $4.99 USD upgrade offer is only eligible for the digital version of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition; players must own the retail disc or digital version of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and connect to Xbox Live with their account when playing the digital version.

DayZ Developer Denies PS4 Exclusivity; Likely Coming to Xbox One

Oct 01, 2014 - 1:23 PM - by dgstorm

Dean Hall's open-world zombie game, DayZ was just announced for the PS4. It was suspiciously not announced for the Xbox One next-gen console. Luckily, it looks like if it is a PS4 exclusive, it will only be a temporary one. According to Hall himself, the game is meant to be for multiple platforms. Here's a quote,

"DayZ is definitely going to be a multiplatform title," he said. "That's the firm vision from Bohemia's standpoint. But we'll announce what all the other platforms are as we get to that point."
Hal even mad it it point to say that just because it was announced on Sony's stage doesn't necessarily mean it will be a Sony exclusive. The zombie fighting game is already available as an "Early Access" title on Steam for the PC, although that version is not its finalized form. Sadly, it appears the game will not be coming until sometime in 2016 as Hall also pointed out that "there's just too much work remaining," to get it out next year.

Microsoft Officially Unveils Windows 10; Skips Windows 9!

Sep 30, 2014 - 12:37 PM - by dgstorm

Even though this is obviously not gaming news, it's still a surprising development in the tech world, so we thought it prudent to share it with you.

It looks like the folks in Redmond can still shock and awe from time to time, although this time it's really just a PR gimmick. Microsoft just officially unveiled Windows 10 to the public. You read that right... they are skipping the Windows 9 name and going straight for the next generation.

While the operating system is still the same thing they have been working on since Windows 8 was a big flop, Microsoft felt that the changes to the OS were so significant it was worth passing over the Windows 9 name. Ultimately this is just a marketing semantics stunt, but it definitely has our attention.

Even more notable is that the release has now slipped farther down the road. According to the report, Windows 10 will be released "later in 2015." Here's a quote with some of the details as to why Microsoft execs decided to go this route,

Yes, the company is skipping the "Windows 9" moniker. Why skip "9"?

"When you see the product in its fullness I think you will agree with us that it is a more appropriate name," [MS executive Terry] Myerson said.

Among other things, Belfiore said the company wants to focus on personalization, to make the Windows experience particular to individual users' tastes and preferences.

"We are trying to hit this balance in just the right way," [MS executive Joe] Belfiore said.

Starting Wednesday, Microsoft is launching a Windows Insider program and will release a technical preview of Windows 10 for laptops and desktops, with other devices to follow.

Microsoft will start talking more about the consumer experience next year at the company's developer conference in the spring, Myerson said. It expects to launch Windows 10 "later in 2015.."
What do you guys think of Microsoft's curve-ball to the media?

Microsoft Opening Flagship Store at Fifth Avenue in New York

Sep 29, 2014 - 12:46 PM - by dgstorm

The above image is from Microsoft's opening of their retail store in Boston.

Have you heard of the famous Apple flagship store at Fifth Avenue in New York? It will soon be joined by its "bestest buddy ever!" Microsoft officially confirmed plans to build their own flagship Microsoft retail store at Fifth Avenue in New York as well. Here's a quote from Microsoft's press statement,

Today, I am pleased to confirm we have signed a lease to open a flagship store at 677 Fifth Avenue in New York City. As our first flagship store, it will serve as the centerpiece of our Microsoft Stores experience. This is a goal we’ve had since day one – we were only waiting for the right location. And now we have it. Our Fifth Avenue location will be much more than just a Microsoft Store. In addition to retail, there will be experiential space for Microsoft as a company to further engage with our customers and partners in new and innovative ways. This is an important milestone for Microsoft overall, our Stores team and millions of our current customers, as well as the millions to come. We could not be more excited to join one of the most visited streets in America.
They didn't specify when it will be open, but it looks like they will begin the process very soon. What do you think of this move from masters of Windows?

Historic Day as Xbox One Launches in China

Sep 29, 2014 - 11:58 AM - by Maura

The Xbox Wire reports on a great day for Microsoft in China, with the historic launch of the Xbox One in the country, making it the first console to be officially released in China for 14 years.

From today, the Xbox One is now available in over 4,000 retail outlets in 37 cities.

“It has been rewarding to see new fans lining up at stores, connecting to Xbox Live for the first time, and enjoying the first wave of games available,” said Microsoft, and you can certainly see how much fun everyone is having in the pictures on Xbox Wire.

To celebrate the occasion, some of Shanghai’s most famous and imposing skyscrapers, including the Oriental Pearl Tower, were sporting a fancy new hue of Xbox Green!

“This milestone is significant for both our partnership with China and our global expansion plan. Every new market launch is unique and we’re grateful to our fans for their patience and enthusiasm,” said Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. “We will continue to work closely with our partner BesTV to bring exciting games, entertainment and app experiences to delight gamers across China.”
Microsoft also notes that with the addition of China, Xbox One is now available in 41 markets worldwide.

New Destiny update gets rid of the “Loot Cave,” But a New One Has Been Found!

Sep 26, 2014 - 2:07 PM - by Maura

MCVUK reports that Bungie has issued a new update for Destiny that primarily involves doing away with the legendary “loot cave” by increasing the spawn rate of enemies to 40 seconds instead of 6 seconds.

Commenting on the move via its Destiny Dev Notes page on Bungie.net, the Destiny Dev Team at Bungie had this to say:

“The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave. The speed at which the community organized around this activity was inspiring and humbling to us.

“But shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played. Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities.”
All well and good, except for the fact that as Forbes reports, a new Loot Cave (“Loot Cave 2.0”) has already been found! These Destiny players ain’t playin’!

MCVUK reports that Bungie has also stated that it intends to reduce the randomness of engram decryption, and increase the drop rate. The ability to opt-in to voice chat during matchmaking will also be added, and Strikes will be made a little less punishingly difficult, with Bungie saying that Strikes will be “a little less grindy as a result.”

Great to see that Bungie is paying close attention to player feedback to enhance the Destiny experience.
