I've been doing a lot of TV-on-Blu-ray binge watching, so it sucked in 37 discs in a row without any problems. Maybe it just needed a break.

I bought Wolfenstein at Costco for $37. It's the only XO disc I own. WTF is up with the packaging with the disc being held on the left-hand side? When did that become a thing?

Anyway, it looks like MS is putting the digital game on sale on the 17th for $40. I'm wondering if Costco will let me return an opened game... has anyone tried?

The three Xbox One games I have all the same way. Might just be a "look at how different we are!" kinda thing.

Microsoft is closing Xbox Entertainment Studios. No more original programming (except what's already in the works).

Probably a smart move for the company, but will this affect Quantum Break in any way? I know it's Remedy's game, but I figured the interactive TV stuff was going to fall under XES.

Well, again... wasn't a bad idea. But come on guys... games. Games games games games games. Satisfy the need for games before branching off to other stuff.

Makes sense, I can't imagine the return on that programming was significant or a big enough reason for people to want to purchase the console anyway.

I guess we'll never find out (unless the stuff in production is huge, which is unlikely).

How long before they drop the TV guide overlay/passthrough?

I don't think they will. The cost of up keeping that is probably minimal. The pass through works fine, but the OneGuide is not very user friendly.

Wow...XBox studios gets the axe before it really even started - guess there's no point in watching any of its programming now - no use getting attached to something that's not going to continue. They should have partnered with someone already in the entertainment content providing business.

I use my ONE for content as much as games (as I'm sure many do), so this is kind of disappointing. One less reason to keep that GOLD membership when it runs out, as far as I'm concerned.

So what does that mean for the Halo series that they already started filming?

They say no.

Quantum Break "will be released next year and the game and show both remain on track," a Microsoft spokesperson said.

"The news of Xbox Entertainment Studios has not impacted our progress and we're excited to share more details of Quantum Break at Gamescom in August," the statement reads.

3D Blu-ray bitches!
http://majornelson.com/2014/07/18/next-xbox-one-update/
Activity feed updates: We’re adding new ways for you to interact with friends in the activity feed. The interface will change to a single column scrolling list that is longer and includes more content. We’ll add the ability to post text to your feed, and to “like” and comment on feed items. You can share game clips and anything else in the feed with friends either publically (to your activity feed) or privately (as an attachment to a message). You’ll also be notified when anyone likes, comments on or shares your items. Each user will get a personal feed on their profile, so you can see what specific friends have been up to. And, with SmartGlass, you can see what your friends have shared to their activity feed and “like” specific posts (additional activity feed support coming in future SmartGlass updates).

Expanded Friends area on Home: Right from Home, see what’s going on with your friends. Stay up-to-date with their current activity, the top trending games your friends are playing, and a leaderboard to see who has been working the hardest on their Gamerscore. We’re doing an extended preview on this, rolling it into the early access preview this month to a subset of our preview audience so we can refine it until it’s ready for the entire Xbox One market.

Mobile purchase: One of the most requested features on Xbox Feedback. Using Xbox SmartGlass or on Xbox.com, you can remotely purchase games and Add-on content. No more waiting to begin downloading when you get home – if your console is set to automatically take updates, your console will begin downloading your purchase.

Low battery notification: You asked for it, now a notification will pop up when your controller battery is getting low.

Disable notifications during video: Adding the ability to turn off notifications based feedback we heard from you.

Enabling 3D Blu-ray: An update to the Blu-ray player app will enable 3D Blu-ray functionality on Xbox One.

OneGuide in Brazil, Mexico, Austria and Ireland: Live TV listings can be configured for four new countries as part of this month’s Preview program. And now there is an OneGuide Issue Reporter available under the TV & OneGuide settings, Troubleshooting section.

Last seen time in Friends list: Direct from Xbox Feedback, the friends list will now show how long it’s been since a friend has been online. For example, “Last seen 20m ago: Forza Motorsport 5.”

Looks like the next One update is the big one that many people have been asking for. 3D blu-ray support!

http://majornelson.com/2014/07/18/next-xbox-one-update/

You have made Xbox what it is today and we couldn’t be more grateful for your support and valuable feedback. Our focus continues to be on you and what you want in the product. Last month, we launched Xbox Feedback, a dedicated channel for all your thoughts and recommendations. We will begin implementing some of the features you requested by rolling out the next Xbox One system update for folks who get early access. We’re looking forward to hearing feedback on features before we roll them out to all Xbox One consoles next month and beyond.



In the next update, we’ll improve a number of social features to make sharing your gaming experiences with friends better and easier. Here’s a shortlist of features rolling out next week to those with early access to the Xbox One system update:

Activity feed updates: We’re adding new ways for you to interact with friends in the activity feed. The interface will change to a single column scrolling list that is longer and includes more content. We’ll add the ability to post text to your feed, and to “like” and comment on feed items. You can share game clips and anything else in the feed with friends either publically (to your activity feed) or privately (as an attachment to a message). You’ll also be notified when anyone likes, comments on or shares your items. Each user will get a personal feed on their profile, so you can see what specific friends have been up to. And, with SmartGlass, you can see what your friends have shared to their activity feed and “like” specific posts (additional activity feed support coming in future SmartGlass updates).

In addition to these features, we are still always doing other work on the backend you may not notice including getting ready to ship in 29 new markets starting this September.

Thank you for your incredible support. You’ve helped us make Xbox One a great place to play games and we’re looking forward to the road ahead as we get ready to launch the most critically acclaimed games this holiday.
Gotta give MS a ton of credit. They really are listening to customers on improvements and updates and getting them out in a relatively timely manner.

It is mildly amusing that MS (software company primarily) has enabled 3D blu-ray support on their machine before Sony (hardware company primarily) has enabled that feature on theirs.
