The 5 most anticipated Xbox One exclusives of 2015

Maybe all of the controversy surrounding the launch of the Xbox One was for the best. It meant that Microsoft had no choice but to shake things up if it wanted to get back on the right side of the gaming community.

Microsoft’s most ambitious Xbox One plans appear dead

Remember back in long-ago days of 2013 when Microsoft was pushing the Xbox One as an all-purpose cloud-based entertainment system that wasn’t just for games but also for movies, music and television shows? Well, those days appear to be over and Microsoft for now seems happy for people to think of the Xbox One as just a gaming console. The Verge’s Nilay Patel notices that all of the key executives behind the push to make the Xbox One more than a gaming console have either been reassigned to new positions or have left the company.

Ghosts of Christmas past: Apple spent Christmas in the 1990s bashing Microsoft in ads

Today, Apple is above it all. The company has retired its gloves for the time being, and it lets companies like Microsoft and Samsung land unanswered blows while Apple just sits back and enjoys being the most valuable technology company in history. It’s easy to stay quiet when your success does the talking, so Apple takes a different approach to commercials for the holidays now, and releases ads meant to move us.

Apple definitely didn’t always take the high road, though. The company used to pick fights all the time with its more successful rival Microsoft, and today we’re going to take a look back at how Apple spent the Christmas holiday back in the 1990s. More →

I’d seen the videos and I’d heard the concern from Halo fans, but I wanted to actually get my hands on it before I made any judgments. After all, Halo’s competitive multiplayer has never been my strong suit, so I was more excited about the changes than the Halo purists.
