Microsoft is taking some time to answer questions about the upcoming Xbox One X console and what it’s planning for its hardware roadmap.
That’s something we’re very much looking forward to in the coming months.
Microsoft’s E3 briefing will be held this year on June 18th, and we’ll be able to share our impressions with you before the event.
But first, let’s take a look at how the company plans to make use of the Xbox Live gold program.
As a newbie to gaming, you might be wondering how Microsoft plans to pay for its Xbox Live subscription.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal back in September, Microsoft’s Andrew Wilson revealed that the Xbox One would offer users the ability to buy Xbox Live games in the Xbox Store, but that they wouldn’t have access to the games they already paid for.
“If you’re a gamer who hasn’t yet signed up for Xbox Live, we’re going to be making an Xbox Live game for you, you’re not going to have to sign up for that,” he explained.
“It’s a free game.
But it’s a paid game that you can purchase.”
Wilson also revealed that Microsoft would be introducing new Xbox Live features like online gaming support, which allows gamers to play games and watch live TV from home.
The feature is currently only available on Windows PCs and Xbox One consoles.
While Wilson also announced that Microsoft was working on new features like Xbox Live Arcade support, we didn’t get a clear indication of whether this would be for Xbox One or Xbox One S consoles.
This feature is coming to Xbox One, but it isn’t available on Xbox One Pro, Xbox One Games, Xbox Live Wireless, Xbox 360 Games or Xbox Live Vault.
In addition to the new features coming to the Xbox store, Microsoft also plans to launch its new Xbox One app for PC, Xbox Store for iOS and Android.
This new app will allow users to play all the games on their PCs, Xbox consoles, mobile devices and the web at once.
Microsoft also confirmed that the new app would be available for Xbox users in select markets like the UK, US, Canada, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Africa and China.
Microsoft will launch the app on June 29th.
Microsoft’s Xbox Live team is also looking to make sure the app is ready for launch in time for E3.
“We are going to try to get the app up to date as soon as possible so that people can be able [to use it],” said Wilson.
“There’s a bunch of stuff coming in that’s going to allow you to play online with friends, stream TV to your Xbox 360, stream games on the phone to your TV, play online on the TV, and have it available to you on your Xbox.”
Microsoft’s plans for the Xbox app are also looking promising.
“You can’t go to the Store and purchase an Xbox app,” Wilson explained.
But, the company is still working on making the app more user-friendly.
“In terms of how we make it look and feel, we’ll try to make it easier to navigate,” he said.
“What we’re trying to do is make it so it’s easy to see which games you can buy and which games are coming in.”
We can’t wait to find out how the new Xbox will make use.
