First Xbox One commercial targets weekend warriors

By  •  News

Xbox One Football

Microsoft has officially released the Xbox One marketing hounds in preparation for an upcoming November 22 system launch. At the head of the pack, the first commercial for the next generation console chased down televisions nation-wide to ask, “Are you ready for some football?”

The sure-fire spot focused entirely on non-gaming aspects of the forthcoming hardware, chief among them being Microsoft’s lucrative partnership with the National Football League. The TV spot – which can be viewed after the jump – showcases Kinect-based voice control, live sports streaming, the NFL app with fantasy integration and, of course, real-time Skype.

Xbox fans, who use the system to play games, might be disappointed in seeing the spot as another chapter in the narrative that paints the Xbox One as an all-around entertainment device first, and a gaming platform second. However, this commercial is likely the first of many, many fronts in the war for your wallet, and targeted specifically at the massive football-oriented audience tuned in for last week’s NFL season opener.

NFL Blitz co-op features revealed

NFL Blitz co-op features revealed

By  •  News

A few months ago the new iteration of NFL Blitz was revealed, but little was known about the reboot. Over the last few weeks we’ve received more and more details about the game via the “Blitz two-minute drills” videos. This week, NFL Blitz Designer, Yuri Bialoskursky, took to the NFL Blitz blog to let us know about the co-op modes featured in the game. With two modes, “Blitz Teams” and “Online co-op”, both detailed in the video above, the newest version of NFL Blitz wants you to play the game with friends, and that’s perfectly fine with us.

  • Blitz Teams – Allows you to both create and customize a team with logos and banners from the “Blitz Store”. From there you can invite a friend to either be the co-owner of the team, or to just be a teammate. You can use your teammate as a safety net: By pressing the friendly pass button (LB), the ball will automatically be passed to your co-op partner. Taking your team to the top of the “Battle Boards” and into the Hall of Fame is your ultimate goal.
  • Online Co-Op – The same great gameplay that’s featured in Blitz Teams, but in this mode, you don’t have to worry about creating a team. You can choose to quick co-op if you just want to play some freakin’ NFL Blitz, or you can invite up to three friends to play co-op with you. You can also invite a friend if you just want to play co-op against the computer.
You can check out some recently released screens from the upcoming co-op modes below. The newest iteration of NFL Blitz is due out January 4th for 1200MSP. Read More
