Games with Gold, the Xbox 360 monthly free game promo by Microsoft is said to have been extended indefinitely. This is Microsoft’s strategy to tackle with the intense competition which it faced from Sony due to its initiative towards the PlayStation 3 and Vita.
Having trouble deciding on whether or not to get a PlayStation 4 or Xbox 360 this holiday season? Microsoft wants to change that with their multi-city international Xbox One Tour that will give gamers the chance to experience the next generation console before it launches on November 22.
Sometimes moves made by the Big names in the Tech industry get too complex that they get hard to comprehend. For instance, the decision reverted to bring Start button in Windows 8.1 but not the Start menu. Such steps limit the company being aggressive, and now news has been publicized that the second generation Kinect sensor (comes with Xbox One) isn’t going to plug into PCs, reason being it’s having a proprietary connector.
Just when the controversy over Microsoft’s update to the Xbox 360 couldn’t possibly get any juicer, it did.
A few days ago, Microsoft retracted two of their more upsetting features for the Xbox One – that of a required always-on connection and the inability to play any used games. In a statement by Don Mattrick, an Xbox executive, the company reversed the decision that insisted on DRM policy for used and shared games and that the 24 hour online requirement was nixed, meaning players can take their Xbox One anywhere.
