Our friends over at Microsoft kicked off the day with a huge announcement about the next generation in their XBox console family. The XBoxOne has been revealed, and we were front row center with our eyes peeled on all the new awesomeness. It looks to be pretty hands on with your everyday lifestyle, and with these new features, Microsoft looks to set the tone on what will be the next generation of entertainment and integration. Below, you’ll find a few different features they touched on, along with some information that we found out about through networks and gaming gurus online. Here’s what we know:
-Voice Recognition and Commands: The XBoxOne will recognize the users voice and respond to commands like “XBoxOn,” “XBox Go Home” and “XBox Watch TV” along with many more.
-Skype on XBoxOne: Group video chat, along with high-speed, HD connection on a big screen tv, with what Microsoft calls the best living room camera on the market
-SnapMode Picture-in-Picture: The new kinect unit that comes with all XBoxOne consoles will allow hand gestures to do various things on screen like snapping windows open and closed, along with having multiple windows showing at once.
-Steven Spielberg to direct Halo TV Series: That’s right, the legend himself is going to be behind the franchise title moving onto the small screen. Hopefully they integrate this directly into the gameplay a la Defiance.
-XBoxOne will be released later this year. That’s right. We’re thinking probably Holiday season.
-It will NOT be backwards compatible with XBox360 games. Due to a few different things, kind of a bummer, but don’t get rid of those 360′s just yet folks.
As more word comes out about XBoxOne we’ll keep you posted with all of the goodies and news.</b>
360 is definitely one of the best lyricists out there that needs to get some more major attention. If you haven’t started listening to him yet, it’s about time to wake up. Here’s his “Own Thing” remix featuring Jadakiss and Freddie Gibbs.
I think just about everyone saw that coming. Anderson Cooper of CNN and his famed show “AC: 360″ has admitted to his colleagues and the world that he is in fact gay. Cooper, now 45, stated that he decided to come out now because “As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn’t matter.” Cooper has be key in reporting on some of the hottest, and most newsworthy topics in the last 5-10 years with his work at CNN, and is well respected in both the news community and celebrity spotlight. He’ll probably get a ton more supporters now.
Three new tracks just recently dropped that are definitely worth sharing with our fans. We’ve got one from Gucci Mane ft. 2 Chainz called “I’m Up”, 360 with “Thirsty” (over Kanye’s “Mercy”) and another one from Waka Flocka ft. Plies called “Lurkin”.
Not sure if everyone that reads this knows about 360 but the guy has been making a lot of moves in the industry from labels looking at him and even working with J.Cole. Here’s his new EP titled “Everywhere and Back”, highly recommend downloading this one.
360 is an artist that has been catching a lot of buzz lately. He recently got in the lab with J.Cole and they collaborated to make this track. 360 on the bars, J.Cole on the beat.
I feel like these three are always working on something together. This time WSU’s very own Kevin McCall asks his boys Tyga and Chris Brown to help him out on “360″. Pretty dope track, very highly recommended.
