Rumor: Xbox One to get TV DVR capabilities this year

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Microsoft confirmed this week that its Media Center functionality won’t be present in Windows 10, but it sounds like there are plans to replace Media Center’s functionality, and the Xbox One will play a role in that.

The two big functions of Media Center were as a DVD player – which Microsoft’s Gabe Aul says will be addressed later this year – and as a DVR.

According to tech writer Paul Thurrott, Microsoft’s television recording solution will be the Xbox One. Right now, Xbox One owners can run their cable box through their Xbox One to use it as a TV passthrough. Microsoft has functionality on the way, currently in preview, to add over-the-air television to the console in the U.S. – something already available in parts of Europe and in Australia. Additionally, the ability to stream television to tablets and smartphones using Xbox One Smartglass and PCs running Windows 10 is currently in the works for a near future release.

Thurrott’s sources tell him that the Xbox One will likely be given TV recording capabilities later this year.

This would be a nice complement to the Xbox One’s suite of media capabilities and really go a long way toward making it the “All-in-One Entertainment System” that Microsoft likes to call the console in press releases. I’ll be buying the biggest hard drive on the market the day Microsoft unveils this feature, because if I miss Arrow or Flash, my day is just ruined.

This is currently an unconfirmed rumor, but the addition seems like an obvious one considering the current and future television features on the system.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
