A “lightweight Xbox One” less powerful may be coming in 2016

Now an Xbox One Hardware Revision is rumored to be on the way

hardware revisions have to an expected part of the console life cycles for decades, but usually they are hardware updates meant that kick up sales and reduce costs of production. Now an Xbox One Hardware Revision is rumored to be on the way, but it does not sound like quite the same thing.

According to Microsoft blogger Brad Sams the Petri, rumors of a "lightweight Xbox One" were taking in recent months.


If he says easy, he does not speak of an elegant, optimized version like the Xbox 360s Slim edition, but it is slightly less powerful - get your jokes about the current Xbox one's Power ready for the "Comments" section - and less expensive.

The system, he says, is "a lightweight Xbox One, perhaps the only for Windows save games and compete with Apple TV." Similar rumors were floating around during the start window for the Xbox One a few years back, but obviously were scrapped. My guess is that if something like this was in the wings, the plans went out the window together with Microsoft's lead thanks to the Xbox One's a botched unveiling and release.

If this happens, we can look forward to seeing you in the second half of the year, which is the system was announced at E3.

If Microsoft is thinking about something like this, you need to make sure that it is not something that can be confused with the Xbox One. Add the consumer confusion of the system already lagging sales could be a severe blow to the console.

This is all rumor now, but it seems reasonable that Microsoft is encryption internally for each type to catch the Xbox brand to the revitalized play station name. Even if Spencer has admitted that the Xbox One is simply not catch up to the PlayStation 4, it makes sense, they were looking for ways to lift up the larger Xbox brand.

As for the Xbox One a proper revision if the system keeps pace with the 360, we would see that sometime in 2018 - the Xbox One such as the Xbox 360, received an Elite Edition Two years after release, and the 360s Slim edition hit in 2010, five years after.

NBA 2K15 player  Create on  Xbox One / PS4 by scanning your face

NBA 2K15 Create on player Xbox One / PS4 to analyze your Face

If, like me, you do not have the patience to perfectly recreate your look in the system of character customization in a game, NBA 2K15 is offering a good substitute: You can now simply scan your face in the game.


This new technology face exploration is carried out in Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of 2K15. To do this, you obviously need the camera the respective console. (Fortunately, buyers Xbox Kinect least one will be able to start just before Kinects buyingstandalone 2K15 will be released.)

The video above shows the process of scanning your face; Basically, you get very close (6-12 inches) of the camera and slowly turn your head 30 degrees left and right. According to 2K, it only takes about 30 seconds in total, although it is assumed that all goes well.

Once your face has been scanned, the game will build a custom head based on that data. Although not the first game to do something like this - remember Rainbow Six. Vegas doing an abomination of the head at the time - 2K says the process "is not capturing an image the 3D model is captured all over her face, that brings more realism than any system before. "

With his face in the game, you can touch up your eyes, giving you the opportunity to perform a rhinoplasty in his own virtual (or anything else). You can see more of this in the gallery below.

NBA 2K15 launches on October 7 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.


Working for Microsoft Xbox games flow right to your browser

Microsoft is developing technology that transmits Xbox games on PC browsers.

if a new report by veteran journalist Brad Sams Microsoft Neowin is correct. One Both Xbox and Xbox 360 games are supposed to work with the service, which can be accessed through Internet Explorer or Chrome.


Microsoft Xbox games
 

Last year, Microsoft has it used the effervescent power of the cloud to show Halo 4 is running on a Windows Phone, among other devices. This browser-based solution is apparently the continuation of this research, as well as use for a huge infrastructure of Microsoft Azure cloud.

According to Sams, "Xbox 360 offered the full experience, including the dashboard runs in the browser too ... The product, as it is right now, has the Xbox brand and works outside the walls of Microsoft . "

Another source said Sams experience will provide 60 frames per second, which is more than I can say for most Xbox 360 and Xbox One games.


Xbox 360 and Xbox One games.
 
The fact that Microsoft is entering the streaming space is not a big surprise. OnLive has broadcast games on multiple platforms for years, Steam now allows home streaming PC games, Nvidia Shield streams PC games, and Sony is making its big push with PlayStation now. Just last month Microsoft Research published details of DeLorean, its initiative to reduce the backlog of web-based games.

This is where I'm confused though: PlayStation Now is the direct equivalent of this Microsoft service, and runs exclusively on PlayStation devices. Why will Microsoft Xbox and Xbox 360 games one and make them available on all computers? I have no idea, and this is the piece of rumor that gives me pause. The Xbox one is not selling incredibly well, but neither is selling so poorly that streaming system based on PC makes a lot of sense.

Unless, that is, the technology allows you to transmit only the dashboard and games directly from your own Xbox, similar to the form of vapor streaming at home working with computers. In that case, Xbox streaming to Windows devices could help shore up struggling sales of Windows tablets and give the Xbox an advantage on the PlayStation 4, the Remote Play functions are limited to a handful of mobile devices from Sony.

Of course, this project (if any) is safe within the laboratory-which means Microsoft Research is a possibility that we never see, or come, but in a totally different way. In any case, we keep you informed if we find more.

Slender: The arrival set to launch on Xbox 360, PS3 Soon



If you enjoyed Slender: The arrival in PC, the horror game Blue Isle Studios based on Slender Parsec Productions, then you're probably not as excited to know that the game is set to arrive on the Xbox 360 and PS3 on 23 September 24th. Still, if you have a PC that can run the game, you are probably very excited.

A press release apparently seeped between Midnight City, the new independent publisher that focuses on small and mid-budget indie games, offering the opportunity to get their games to the public. They have also been behind recent titles like Krautscape.

I like what Midnight City is aiming to make within the gaming industry and it is good to see a publisher put and pick stocks with potential sleeper-hit and take them home consoles state.

As discovered by Hardcore Gamer, the release date for Slender: The arrival did not come alone. A new trailer was also reduced, which can be checked below.

 

The game will take on a completely new story based on the creative work of the team behind Marble Hornets. The game will have levels, new story elements and all the horror of the mythos tension mounted Slender Man has been known to promote widespread.

Curiously, the game has only rated "T" for Teen. Usually horror titles suspense or get 'M' for Mature rating. So what we are seeing here is a game that is based on the typical bucket full of language or lack of blood to carry content.

I thought it was pretty neat that a number of horror titles following along this line using this kind of method - a method relying on the atmosphere and the progressive tension rather than the typical jump-scares most other parties.

One of the reasons why the games have been thin so scary for some people is that you can not really know what will happen; games take place in open environments and there is a nonlinear element for horror. The concept of the game revolves around players trying to find and gather documents, keys, while trying to avoid the gaze of the Slender Man.

No weapons and no way to fight Slender Man, so players basically have to move cautiously in their attempt to advance through levels. I can easily say it is one of the scariest games out there.

I'm curious how well Slender: The arrival will be sold on the Xbox 360 and PS3 after already having been out on Steam since last year. Still, there are not many games on consoles like Slender: The Arrival and I suspect you can gather your own remarkable track once it releases.

You will be able to pick up a copy of the game, digitally, for the PS3 on September 23 and the Xbox 360 from September 24.
