Phil Spencer tweeted the above image, saying, “Nice to finally be doing this on my Xbox One dev kit.” You see that itty bitty text in the center that says “Press Y to save the screenshot?” That’s probably what he’s talking about.
Last October, Phil Spencer promised to let you save screenshots on your Xbox One in a future update, and it looks like it’s coming soon. We only just got the February update that brought Game Hubs, custom backgrounds, faster controller connectivity, and other things, so he’s keeping his team busy.
All eyes were on Microsoft a few days ago as the tech giant revealed Windows 10, HoloLens and many more shiny new things. Xbox fans (like us) were rewarded with the announcement that Windows 10 is coming to Xbox One, and a whole lot of features will be coming with it. Your PC is about to become the ultimate companion to your living room entertainment.
Perhaps the biggest announcement is that you will be able to stream your Xbox One games to any Windows 10 device, like a laptop or Surface tablet. Nintendo and Sony have already demonstrated the value of this coveted feature, but your tablet will make a bigger screen than a Wii U GamePad or a Vita. You just need a good spot to prop it.
There will also be games playable on both platforms, starting with Fable Legends. Game DVR will be accessible from your PC where a mouse and keyboard make better editing tools. And, DirectX 12 should make a big difference to graphics with its optimization black magic. Check it out in the video below:
The team behind last year’s Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons has started a new studio called Hazelight, headed by the Brothers director Josef Fares. Electronic Arts is publishing their first game, teased in the screenshot above. It does not yet have a title.
Fares’ success with Brothers came after many successful works in film. “Movies are a great way of telling a story,” he says, “but the potential of interactive storytelling through games is even greater.” After the emotional journey that Brothers was, he has a point.
When inquired, Hazelight told us “We are not at AAA level budget-wise. We are a comparably small team in the area of 20-25 employees.” In other words, they are right up our alley. Check out the teaser for their new game below.
iOS smash-hit Infinity Blade is coming to Xbox One as Infinity Blade Saga, confirms Chinese site A9VG. The console compilation will reportedly include all three games in the series and will be playable with Kinect or a controller. The port is coming from the games division of Tencent, a huge Chinese Internet company that invests in all kinds of businesses (including video games). It is a stakeholder for Epic Games, which owns Infinity Blade developer Chair Entertainment.
The original iOS games use swipe motions and symbols to engage opponents in one-on-one combat. The series makes up some of the highest-rated iOS games on the App Store and have each been flagship showoff pieces for the iPhone’s graphics capabilities. They’re also really fun. See the game playing on Kinect in the video below:

November’s Xbox One update is opening up new options to show off who you are online and change the look of your console interface. There’s also some new ways to watch content through the OneGuide. Here is the rundown:
You can now suit up your profile with your Location and Bio like on the Xbox 360, but you also have a “Showcase” that rolls clips from Game DVR or your notable Achievements as soon as someone looks at your profile. This can be customized with whatever content you want. Speaking of Game DVR, you can finally share your clips to Twitter straight from your console. Nice!
