Xbox One screenshot feature delayed

Defense Grid 2 Electricity

The December update for the Xbox One will not contain the highly anticipated screenshot feature.  Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, says for gamers to set their expectations appropriately for updates during the holiday season, but emphasizes that improving the Xbox One continues to be a top priority.  He went on to say that the screenshot feature remains in active development, but it is not as simple as it may appear.  Spencer told IGN how the perception of what needs to get done can often differ from the work needed.  He claims to have mentioned this to his development team asking that “[If] we can do video, how hard can it be to just grab a frame of the video?”  But once Spencer learned more about the project, he admitted that “it’s a little more technically challenging than I thought. Two weeks ago, they think they’ve found a good solution for screenshots. They’re working on it. They know people want it. The team has a path to getting it done, and now it’s just prioritizing.”

Microsoft Garage consists of interns and employees from around the company who work together to turn their “wild ideas into real projects.” The group previously created some social, mobile and wearable technology apps.

Limbo for Xbox One appears on Korean Ratings Board

Limbo possibly coming to Xbox One

Xbox 360 puzzle-platformer Limbo could be headed to the Xbox One, a Korean Ratings Board listing suggests.

Microsoft Korea submitted “Limbo Xbox One” to the board for classification on October 17. While the submission is something short of a confirmation of the existence of an Xbox One port, but many games have first been discovered through various countries’ ratings board listings. XBLA Fans has reached out to developer Playdead about the listing and will update this story in the (unlikely) event that the studio issues a response.

Playdead first released Limbo on Xbox Live Arcade in 2010 before porting it to PC, iOS and PlayStation 3 and Vita. Last year, XBLA Fans ranked the game as one of Xbox Live Arcade’s top 10 releases, noting that its dark atmosphere made players fearful of every boss encounter.

This year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo saw Playdead unveil the existence of its next game, Inside, through a trailer showing a boy hiding among rows of seemingly lifeless people. The ID@Xbox title will release on Xbox One first in 2015 before being brought to other platforms.

Get a sneak peek at The Behemoth’s Game 4 next week

The Behemoth Game 4 stream for Extra Life

The Behemoth has been careful to only reveal information about its next game at a slow trickle. The developer elected not to show or tell the press or public anything relating to Game 4 when it was first announced earlier this year at PAX East. Later, an initial teaser asked gamers if they could deduce what type of game it was rather than telling them.

Unless you had the chance to attend PAX Prime and play the game for yourself, you’re probably still not terribly familiar with how Game 4 plays. Next week, though, The Behemoth will give everyone a chance to see its latest in action when it streams the game as part of the Extra Life Charity event. The studio will be streaming the game on Raptr’s Twitch channel from 3:00 – 4:00 pm PST on October 24. The Behemoth has confirmed that aside from introductions and some info about the charity, the entire hour will be dedicated to the streaming of Game 4.

The Behemoth is hoping to raise at least $1,000 to donate towards Rady Children’s Hospital in the developer’s hometown of San Diego. Players who donate at least $10 will be entered into a raffle to win a mystery plushy. Those wishing to donate can do so here.

Extra Life is a charity 24-hour gaming event founded in 2008 in honor of Victoria Enmon, who lost her life to acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This year, for the first time, the charity will support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of each streamer’s choice.

Xbox One October update is live

Xbox One

Microsoft’s October update for the Xbox One is now available for download. This update focused on optimizing the system for those who bought the Kinect-free version, but it comes with plenty of other fixes and functions.

Snapping apps is a lot easier now. Just double-tap the Xbox button and a small menu pops up. You can pick an app to snap, change focus between the game and the snapped app, or unsnap it. You can also “press X to record that.” To take advantage of the easier snapping, Friends and Messages are snap-able (snappable?) so you don’t have to leave your game while assembling your party.
