E3: XBox One… Second take!

Los Angeles, video game conference…

It’s in E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) that Microsoft brings some precisions on its new entertainement console, the Xbox One:

  • Price $499 in the US, £429 in the UK;
  • Availability in November.

For the rest, video game exposition obliges, it is especially games which are announced or shown.

We shall retain “Metal Gear Solid 5” ( Konami), “Ryse, Son of Rome” ( Crytek), “Dead Rising 3”, “Forza Motorsport 5” or still the “Halo” franchise.

Otherwise, (little) innovation: the Spark project. Smartglass compatible (second screen on Smartphone / tablet), it allows to create universes thanks to voice command (Kinect).

For the Xbox 360, a small continuation of life announced with the release of a “small” version and the release of “World of Tanks”. It’s always a small respite for XNA…


On the other hand, always nothing equivalent to XNA (understand distribution channel of independent games) on Xbox One… And the rumors are not very good on this side. We’ll going to wait until… BUILD? A GDC?

And always no precision as for the regular connection to internet, the microphone of atmosphere, the second-hand games…


That moves forward little by little…
