Next Xbox To Interact With Cable TV Boxes?

Next Xbox To Interact With Cable TV Boxes?

Multiple sources have revealed to The Verge that Microsoft is truly attempting to take over your living room! The site indicates Microsoft’s next generation console will hook up to your cable/TV box and present an overlaying user interface, much like Google TV. However, The Verge points out the new Xbox plans to "go a step further" than Google with their service, with of course the addition of gaming. All of this lends even more credibility to the recent rumors of the new console to always be online. 

As far as Kinect goes, it will undoubtedly be more implemented with the new console than it is with the Xbox 360. Sources say that Kinect will be able to detect multiple people in the room, even their eye movement! When someone looks away from the screen, the Kinect sensor detects this and will pause the content for you automatically. The Verge also reaffirms Microsoft’s focus on "entertainment apps and TV services." How do you feel about Microsoft’s apparent focus on these things, rather than gaming? Let us know!

Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play.

The Last Guardian Will NOT Appear at #E32015 and Here's the Reason Why...

Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
