Ok so E3 is over, and it's time to take stock and catch up with all those lovely trailers. I must admit at first I was a little unsure about how E3 went for Microsoft, there have been a few announcements which have been met with disgust by fans, I am thinking DRM choices and daily check-in here. That been said there are plenty of things Microsoft have confirmed, which means at least we know a little bit more about the latest console hitting our shelves.  Let’s start with the price, confirmed in the UK as £429, this means that online retailers will now be able to officially price their consoles, so expect more bundle deals  in the next few weeks. So the price tag aside let’s take a look at some of Microsoft’s gaming offerings.  Their intro video opened up, unexpectedly, with the new Metal Gear Solid for the Xbox 360 which is an interesting choice as their opening image but why not, it’s an awesome franchise and personally I can’t wait to get a chance to sit down and play it. I’ll move quickly past World of Tanks and onto the Xbox One offerings:        Ryse: Son of Rome…
Over the past few years streaming digital content to your home has become common place, from Lovefilm & Amazon to online TV catch up the UK has embraced the next generation method of acquiring content, so it’s no surprise to see that Microsoft has too. They plan to offer two options for purchasing games. The traditional physical copy option Althought it doesn’t really need explaining; you visit your local retailer and purchase a copy of the game on a Blu-ray. Some consumers still feel they prefer to have a copy in their hands; there is nothing like breaking the cellophane packaging and holding the shiny new disk. Good news for these people, there’s not much change here, the only difference is you will now be required to install the game on your Xbox One before you can play. However as a nice bonus once the game is installed Microsoft will hold in their cloud, allowing you to play you games whilst you’re at a friend’s house. This is AWESOME. Then for those of us who have a decent internet connection and   it is quite likely you will be downloading your games from Live. The modern digital streaming option Again anyone…
It's been a rough day or two over at Microsoft, with their breaking news regarding their more strict rules about selling second hand games, and even giving them away to friends, no doubt after immense pressure from games developers. 24 hour checkin for the new Xbox One Then they announce their next slightly worrying fact about their new Xbox One, at least once a day you console will require a quick visit to the World Wide Web! That’s right, every 24 hours the console will need to “check-in” with it’s parent servers just to check everything is ok. At first guess it reasoning seems quite obvious, they want to stop pirates and cheats. It does make sense if you build a system you have to do everything you can to protect it, and this does seem like a logical answer to the problem. Of course there are those who simply don’t have internet, but I think it’s fair to say most have access, at least once a day, to some form of internet connection.  As for what other information they will gain via this check-in method remains to be seen, but if they use the metrics to improve their live…
