Xbox One Release Date – November 11th 2013? Seems Legit

Alright we already know that everyone got all crazy over Toys ‘R’ Us giving out a release date for the Xbox one and since then gave there apology for giving out a wrong Xbox One release date.

Now August 6th 2013 we have Xbox give an official 5.11.2013 release date for Call of Duty: Ghosts. So our guess would be they release the Xbox One the same day as a popular game such as Call of Duty one of Xbox’s money maker’s.

Xbox One Reputation System – Cracks Down On Cheaters and Trash Talkers

Microsoft’s Micheal Dunn program manager for Xbox Live provides some details on how the Xbox One reputation system will crack down on cheaters and trash talkers.

Xbox One Reputation

No question that Xbox Live is a distinct community of passionate gamers. We love that. But just like in life, there are all types of people – some shy, some polite, some aggressive, some snarky, some annoying and some that can’t avoid swearing at #$%^ happens to them. Most Xbox Live players are polite online and know how to socially adjust to people they’re playing with. But not everyone does this. And, it can be challenging to pick up on social cues when you are connected online and not face-to-face in the same room.

With the new community-powered reputation model for Xbox One, we want to help you avoid the players you don’t want to play with. If you don’t want to play with cheats or jerks, you shouldn’t have to. Our new reputation model helps expose people that aren’t fun to be around and creates real consequences for trouble-makers that harass our good players.

So, how are we doing this? We are simplifying the mechanism for Xbox One – moving from a survey option to more direct feedback, including things like “block” or “mute player” actions into the feedback model. The new model will take all of the feedback from a player’s online flow, put it in the system with a crazy algorithm we created and validated with an MSR PhD to make sure things are fair for everyone.

Ultimately, your reputation score will determine which category you are assigned – “Green = Good Player,” “Yellow = Needs Improvement” or “Red = Avoid Me.” Looking at someone’s gamer card you’ll be able to quickly see their reputation. And, your reputation score is ultimately up to you. The more hours you play online without being a jerk, the better your reputation will be; similar to the more hours you drive without an accident, the better your driving record and insurance rates will be. Most players will have good reputations and be seen as a “Good Player.” The algorithm is looking to identify players that are repeatedly disruptive on Xbox Live. We’ll identify those players with a lower reputation score and in the worse cases they will earn the “Avoid Me” reputation. Before a player ends up with the “Avoid Me” reputation level we will have sent many different alerts to the “Needs Improvement” player reminding them how their social gaming conduct is affecting lots of other gamers.

The algorithm is sophisticated and won’t penalize you for a few bad reports. Even good players might receive a few player feedback reports each month and that is OK. The algorithm weighs the data collected so if a dozen people suddenly reporting a single user, the system will look at a variety of factors before docking their reputation. We’ll verify if those people actually played in an online game with the person reported – if not, all of those player’s feedback won’t matter as much as a single person who spent 15 minutes playing with the reported person. The system also looks at the reputation of the person reporting and the alleged offender, frequency of reports from a single user and a number of other factors.

This system will continue to evolve and get better as we track the feedback we get from players and titles, plus add more consequences for the jerks. It also helps us match you with other gamers like you. Of course, the system will be as good as you make it, so all you need to do is report the players that are abusive, cheating or causing mayhem and their reputation will reflect that. Thank you for helping us continue to make Xbox Live a place we all love. Our team and I built this for all of you and we hope you like it!

Don’t fear this setup, It will make gaming on Xbox live better for everyone.

Xbox 360 Avatars Will Transfer Over to Xbox one

Microsoft’s Marc Whitten provides some details on Xbox One Avatars

Xbox Avatars

They are – your avatar will be on the system at launch and in fact, you’ll have some new options, including the ability to do full-body HD gamerpics. By the way, we should actually talk more about gamerpics too. We’ve moved from the 64×64 gamerpics on Xbox 360 to a full 1080p. They are beautiful, and you are going to see some really cool hero moments, like when you login to see personalized views of your games and other content.

Xbox One DVR Records Gameplay in 720p at 30fps

Marc Whitten, Chief Xbox One Platform Architect tells IGN’s Ryan McCaffrey: Game DVR captures beautiful clips at 720p 30fps. The first thing you’ll see with our game DVR is the integration of our Upload service on the console. This service allows you to manage, edit, and share your content. Your clips are stored in the cloud. Also, you’ll see games making “magic moment” videos of your gameplay based on the game DVR functionality – all seamlessly integrated. You’ll be able to see these clips in the Xbox One Guide, in your own game DVR collection, and when you are looking at gamercards on the system. You’ll also see games take advantage of this platform capability and do interesting things to integrate captured game footage into the game experience itself.

Microsoft to Boost Xbox One’s Graphics Processor Clock Speed From 800 MHz to 853 MHz

Good news for those ardently awaiting the Xbox One! Microsoft managed to find a way to increase the graphics processor’s speed quite a bit, just before sending it off to mass production. Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Xbox Marc Whitten announced during the Major Nelson podcast that the engines will be boosted from 800 MHz to 853 MHz. Actually, this is a very small increase, if we think about it.

So basically we are going to see an increase of exactly 53 MHz, which represents a 6.6% increase. What does that mean in actual terms you might wonder? Well first of all, it might help the Xbox One rival more closely, up and personal with the Sony Playstation 4. Which was estimated to feature 50% more raw power. Mister Whitten explained:

This is the time where we’ve gone from the theory of how the hardware works—what do we think the yield is going to look like, what is the thermal envelope, how do things come together—to really having them in our hands.  It’s actually been really good news for us, and an example of that is we’ve tweaked up the clock speed on the GPU from 800MHz to 853MHz. Just an example of how you start landing the programme, as you get closer to launch.

A small, but not neglectable increase in graphics

With this late upgrade, is Microsoft trying to avoid the catastrophe that has been known as the “Red ring of death” which appeared in the wake of the launch of the Xbox 360? We surely hope so. The company has also received avid criticism related to the fact that its performance was set way lower than the Sony PlayStation 4, especially since the Xbox One is more expensive.

The same Marc Witten:

Since E3, an example is that we’ve dropped in what we internally call our mono driver. It’s our graphics driver that really is 100 percent optimised for the Xbox One hardware. You know, you sort of start with the base [DirectX] driver, and then you take out all parts that don’t look like Xbox One and you add in everything that really, really optimises that experience. Almost all of our content partners have really picked it up now, and it’s really, I think made a really nice improvement.

But will this be enough? We have to take into account that the Play Station 4 also taps on RAM 8GB DDR 5 will the Xbox One comes with 8GB DDR3 RAM. Also, the memory system in PS4 appears to be more robust. With such features we might expect to see better and more attractive games on this console.

Why is Microsoft trying so hard to get it right before the device hits production? Because gaming consoles usually have a long life cycle. The Xbox One’s predecessor the Xbox 360 was launched 7 years ago.

Xbox One to Support Third Party Video Capture Devices

Although the Xbox One will most likely have the option to record a player’s screen, many gamers opt for a third party device to do the work, as it is less limited and will yield better results. Whilst the Xbox 360 offered support for such technology, and the PlayStation 3 had a work-around, allowing users to plug in a third party device, it was uncertain that the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will support this feature.

Future Xbox One owners will not have anything to worry about, as it was officially announced that the new console will support third party video capture devices out of the box. This news will definitely weigh in with gamers who are sharing content from their consoles.

Third party video capture devices supported on Xbox One

xbox-one-price

Either for professional gamers that record gameplay video and do walkthroughs, or casual gamers that just want to make a few videos of their favorite games, the possibility to hook up professional hardware to do high quality video capture on their Xbox One, will be much welcomed news. Microsoft acknowledged this by stating:

Xbox One will support gameplay footage capture just as it works on Xbox 360

Although short, this announcement made the day for thousands of gamers that used to do this on their old consoles. As far as other next generation consoles, like the PS4, are concerned, to this point, there is no confirmation that they will support this technology.

Nevertheless, seeing that Microsoft has admitted to allowing third party video capture for the Xbox One, it’s likely that other manufacturers will provide similar support. For the moment, professional gamers that create gameplay content online will have to stick with the Xbox One.
