    Xbox One update will allow external storage, portable games

    Ooh, looks like XB1 finally has a cool feature over PS4. Common Sony you can't let Microshaft ()get away with this. We need portable gaming on removable hard drives (and I suppose I need friends with PS4's - that'd be cool too).

    It has no upper limit for drive size and will support two drives at the same time.

    might of purchased a preowned One last week and I'm so far really enjoying it. Update next month for external storage will also allow you to display your real real name to selected friends instead of gamertags, auto sign in options being added for none kinect users, Skype snapin video call support and improvements to smartglass.

    Xbox One without Kinect goes up for sale in the UK « WinBeta

    Recently Microsoft announced it would begin selling Xbox One without Kinect, a move that some thought of as acknowledgement of sales lagging behind rival Sony PS4. Regardless of the reason, the move allows for a lower priced console and, perhaps, opens up a new market for the gaming and entertainment box.

    Now the new packaging has gone up for sale in United Kingdom, ahead of the scheduled release. Pricing begins at £315 from electronics retailer CEX. Prices vary, as the store sells both new and used versions of the console. In contrast, Microsoft is currently offering pre-orders of this new version for $399.

    The idea behind this new sales push is not only to offer the Xbox One for a lower price, but also to open the platform up for more game development, as some games will now be produced without the previous need for Kinect integration. However the Kinect will be offered as an add-on for users who change their mind at some point in the future.

    First on Microsoft

    After the whole "T.V, T.V, T.V, T.V" debacle at the launch, I'm surprised by this...

    That probably puts a bullet in the new Halo multi media type thing to with the tv series and game stuff. Just the new ceo making another unsurvivable mess for a week on week gain on stock price with no longer term plans at all. Why are all these ceos sociopaths intent on killing their businesses, they are basically sacking all the Nokia staff too which is dumb as they are the lot that makes the wp platform better for actual usability.

    I think that'll be fine. They're saying anything currently in production will be finished.

    Or maybe he realised that going after Sony and Nintendo in the console market is draining enough of their coffers, going after HBO and Netflix (let alone bigger more established players) is suicidal. This is part of the bigger MS turn around since Balmer left the top job. They seem more inward looking and focused on their core business instead of chasing markets they'll only ever be third run players in. I think some analysts are surprised he never choose to pin off XBox completely.

    Just noticed that MS are releasing a TV tuner adapter for the UK. Could be pretty handy for watching tv whilst gaming or recording programmes. Cheap too at only £25

    Xbox One Digital TV Tuner Coming to Europe - GameSpot

    On a similar theme has anyone on here bought the xbox one headset?

    Official Xbox One Stereo Headset (Xbox One): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games

    I'm trying to decide whether to buy the headset or just get the adapter on it's own to use with my PS4 headset? Erring towards the adapter at the moment.

    You can't record TV programmes.

PlayTV allowed the PS3 to act as a digital TV tuner and DVR, but Sony has not yet revealed a similar device for the PlayStation 4. (Source)
