Basically, Xbox One S will become the xCloud machine going forward.

So it’s sounding like maybe:

Xbox One S at $99.99
Xbox One Disc-Less Edition at $149.99
Xbox One X (New revision with new CPU Ryzen2) at $399.99
Xbox Anaconda (Most powerful console in the market) at $499.99

Can’t watch the video atm...

Interesting, but why revise the cpu in X? Or why just the X, why not all the lesser/base Xbox Ones?

Would the discless variant be based on The S or something new entirely?

I can’t recall, but isn’t the X so far different in architecture that it’s emulating Xbox One games?

XboxDVR is now available on IOS and Mobile allowing you to easily share clips and screenshots



The Xbox One’s ability to natively capture videos and screenshots is both impressive and convenient. Sharing those captures? Now, that’s a different story.

While now you can instantly share your clips to social media, it’s still a bit of a hassle to get those clips onto your computer any other way. Most people either post their captures to social media and then download them from there, or slowly upload the file to OneDrive.

Others use XboxDVR, a website which allows you to easily download your captures from the internet. Anyone who has tried downloading them from the official Xbox website knows why this is a godsend.

XboxDVR is now no longer exclusive to the web with the introduction of an IOS and Android app. Using the app, you can quickly and easily find your captures, share them, download them and even do very basic editing.

It doesn’t feature all of the website’s nuances, such as albums, playlists, YouTube and Twitch integration, comments and achievements, but it’s still an impressive application.

XboxDVR is available for free on IOS and Android.

Jesus! Now Im starting to think The Initiative is building a fully automated, fully functioning, AI-driven Master Chief that shows up at your house and tries to kill you after you buy the game code online or at Gamestop. DLC will be extra clips for his Battle Rifle, and s***.

Seriously! What the hell is this team getting ready to create? I fear for all of our souls.

Fingers crossed that they focus all their might on reinstating obligatory kinect and making kinect only halo games.

Jesus. Lol. Magazine. My bad.
To be honest, I don't know why I do that. Every person here knew exactly what you meant and that's all that matters.

I have a friend that is a great grand son of John M. Browning. He has gun oil in his veins, could talk to you for 3 hours straight about the history of the 1911, has been shooting since he was 4, and is an avid history and gun enthusiast (like me).....yet he still will say "clip" when he means a magazine from time to time. It shows how language evolves and changes........but it still triggers my OCD for some reason. ;)

I am triggered when people say gun instead of weapon. Probably because I was in the Army and they taught us to never say gun.

Probably has more to do with the constant misinformation and misuse of terms around firearms and the resulting sensitivity.

Just curious, why did they not want you to say gun? A gun is just a type of weapon. I wonder what the logic is behind that.

If they want it to be an entry level next gen machine that can still run games designed for more powerful hardware they'd have to change the CPU, that's why I don't get the people who say Sony and MS will drop the old consoles and make the revision consoles (Pro/1X) the standard machines going forward, the cpu's in both consoles are just too weak to run something that's taking advantage of what a ryzen based CPU would be able to do. Changing the CPU would be a way around that if it can be done. It will kind of mess up the market a bit though, you'd have some X owners who can play new gen games and some that can't, if they were going to do that they should change the name of the machine to something else entirely.

Military Police. 95 Bravo, and did my Basic and AIT out of Ft. McClellan Alabama. Was stationed out of Ft. McCoy in Wisconsin.

A gun is one of many weapons. Not all of our weapons are guns. We call them weapons. Here is the difference between the two.

Gun:
“a weapon incorporating a metal tube from which bullets, shells, or other missiles are propelled by explosive force, typically making a characteristic loud, sharp noise.”

Weapon:
“a thing designed or used for inflicting bodily harm or physical damage.
"nuclear weapons"
  • a means of gaining an advantage or defending oneself in a conflict or contest.
    "resignation threats had long been a weapon in his armory"

I think I may be a little thick as i still don't get why they wouldn't want you to say gun.

If there was a knife and a pistol on a shelf, and you asked someone to hand you that weapon on that shelf, wouldn't that be confusing? Both a knife and a gun are both weapons. A gun is just one type of weapon. Seems like it there would be less chance for confusion if you just called it a gun or a knife. But admittadly, there are things that the military does that just go right over my head.

And over my head. It is just what we were trained.

I always envisioned a gun a pistol or revolver, as opposed to a rifle... but doing the Google it seems I'm off. I did learn gun comes from old norse Gunhildr, which people still name children here today (or did two generations ago).
