I've tried to post a lot of BC news before; I saw it but didn't get around to linking to the tweet about it

Just noticed that Best Buy has a deal : Trade in any "select" Xbox One controller and get a $10 Gift Card and $10 coupon towards the purchase of your sexy Maxi-Pad Controller.

Trade in a $60 controller for the chance to buy a different one for $50.

That's a Gamestop type of deal.

You don’t just get the $10 coupon and $10 GC. You also get the trade-in value, which is $15 if it’s in good condition.

Expanding Xbox Voice Commands to Hundreds of Millions of Smart Devices: Xbox Now Connects with Cortana and Alexa-Enabled Devices

Quote:
Today, starting with select Xbox U.S. Insiders, we’re expanding voice support by introducing the Xbox Skill, which enables you to navigate and interact with Xbox One using voice commands through your Cortana and Alexa-enabled devices.

With the Xbox Skill, you can use voice commands to power your Xbox One console, adjust volume, launch games and apps, start and stop broadcasts on Mixer, capture screenshots, and more. It’s the fastest way to get into your games and one of the easiest ways to interact with your console for everyday tasks. For example, if you have the skill enabled on your Echo and you’re a part of the Insider preview, just say “Alexa, start Rocket League.” and this command will automatically turn on your console, sign you in, and launch your game.

The Xbox Skill integrates with your Cortana and Alexa-enabled device such as a Windows 10 PC, Amazon Echo, Harman Kardon Invoke, Sonos One, or Cortana and Alexa apps on iOS and Android, enabling voice commands to control your Xbox One console.

I already have a bit of integration with Echo via the Logitech Harmony Hub, but I guess native support would be cool. I have a lot of smart home stuff connected, especially with my Xbox One X as my primary UHD and media player, so might be fun to play with.

Does the Xbox Skill do anything the Kinect does't? Cause I already have a Kinect, but I don't have an Echo or Cortana device.

I still don't know why they haven't Incorporated voice into the controllers. Seemed like a no brainier after the failure of Kinect.

The last major, and most surprising, addition to the season pass is Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, which fans will remember centers on the American Revolution. This remaster will be released in March 2019 and can be purchased outside of the season pass for an as-of-yet unannounced price. AC3 Remastered will include the core game and all its DLCs (the Benedict Arnold missions, Hidden Secrets Pack and Tyranny of King George).

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered will also include Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered, a game originally released on the PlayStation Vita. Both remastered games will feature 4K and HDR functionality on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC, higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, other graphical enhancements and improved gameplay mechanics.

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

I have a question regarding the XBox One and storage.

I mentioned previously that my 2TB external harddrive was running really low on space. I had maybe 20% space left.

I got a warning about an update I needed for my digital Halo game. It needed to do a 75 GB update. These update files are freaking ridiculous in size.

I just bought a 4 TB external yesterday and added it as well to my XBox One. Can 2 hard drives work concurrently at the same time? I'll leave all the games I had previously on the other drive, but new ones will be added to this new drive. That should work fine right?

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017

^ Yes. Somewhere in the settings, there's a Manage Storage option, where you can choose which games are on each hard drive (internal and the two externals, in your case), and it'll copy them over to wherever you want them stored. I think you can also choose which one is the default for new installs.

Solid concept, but man those are some ugly consoles.

Also, they should do raffles to give average gamers a chance to win instead of just catering to the rich who can bid on these. Charge $20 to put your name in and then it brings it to the whole community instead of just a select few bidding.

I could see them eventually doing that with Bing points for drawings.

They are raising money for charity, so they are betting on this to raise more money than to do what you are suggesting

Re: Xbox One: S $249 Now / X $499 November 7 2017



Frictional Games' disturbing Amnesia survival horror games are finally set to make their debut on Xbox One next week, bundling both Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs (developed by Dear Esther studio The Chinese Room) and Amnesia: Justine in one value package.

In Dark Descent, you play as Daniel, awakening within the confines of a desolate castle. Suffering from amnesia (funny, that), Daniel is unable to remember anything from his past, so must piece together his memories by exploring the castle's darkest corners. Eventually, you'll discover horrors lurking deep beneath the castle, and have to escape.

Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs deals with wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus, who wakes in his bed wraught with fever, haunted by nightmares of a "dark and hellish engine". With his children in danger, Oswald must confront his darkest fears and save them. Finally, Amnesia: Justine puts you through a succession of trials "constructed by a demented mind," in which you'll have to risk your life to save others.

Available to pre-order now with a limited-time 10% discount, Amnesia: Collection due to release for Xbox One on 28th September for $29.99/23.99. Pre-order the game and you can get the collection for $26.99/21.59. Check out the launch trailer below.

So do some of each? Who's to say a few hundred (thousand?) wouldn't throw down $20 on a raffle ticket for a fancy Halo xbox?

Seems like something like this would get far more publicity if it was more inclusive.
