It's coming, it just won't be on the store. You'll need to enable developer mode on the Xbox and side load it. It's been done before with smaller emulators etc.

In a very limited capacity then.

Xboxdvr.com is now available as an app for IOS and Android, which should make it a little easier for anybody wanting to post videos and screenshots while using a phone or tablet. Links: Android and IOS

Is that a brand new app? When I tried it a few months ago it just didn't work.

From what I have read on Reddit, and also a couple of websites, yeah it is supposed to be a brand new app

RIP Xbox One

I watched that, it's a load of bollocks. By that rationale the PS4 is on its way out also. I mean these consoles are gonna be superseded anyway within the next 2 years, but for now the S and PS4 Slim are both excellent entry level consoles, couple an S with Game Pass and it's easily the most affordable way of joining the current gen and playing the latest releases. 

 

I like DF but that was disappointing.

They make some perfectly reasonable points about the OG One via the PS4. And Microsoft has had so much good press about the X, its only fair to to take a wider look at whats going on with their hardware. The OG One isnt going to cut it for the next two years if thats how long we are going to wait for new hardware. Its a bit of an odd situation, with the X so far ahead of everything else.

Actually the S is a slightly more enhanced version of the original OG Xbox One, but it depends what you want. If all you're looking for is a cheaper entry level console to play the latest games then it's perfectly fine.

Weird question but I just checked to see when my Xbox Live sub runs out as it's been a while since I renewed.

 

30/11/18 apparently so it should have run out, but I've still got it as I'm online pretty much every night on Sea of Thieves and my son plays Fortnite too.

 

How on earth am I still accessing it? No No-one else has access, no-one else has signed in on it so I'm mystified as to how I'm still able to access Gold! Any ideas?

Yeah, I'm just fine on an OG XB1. I'm torn... I've quashed my desire for an X, because I don't get enough gaming time to justify the expense, but I'd really like a UHD drive. However, if I get an S, I'd keep my Forza 6 edition OG upstairs. And I'll probably cave and get the Next Xbox on launch, and suddenly I'm swimming in Xboxes. 

 

I should be hyper sensible and just wait, not like we can't watch the Blu Ray discs until we have a UHD to use.

Most notable thing was how often Spencer referenced the PC and needing to do better there. I know Nadella has mentioned bringing Gamepass to the PC but it does seem like MS are going to try and push the Windows 10 store much harder. There doesn't seem to be much in the next Windows Update focused on gaming but maybe once that ships and the Autumn update starts coming together we'll see just what their PC plans involve. Based on what I've read in the past it doesn't seem like the Store was built in a way that was very game friendly, hence the lack of support for stuff like the GeForce Experience at launch, but it seems like the Xbox team is getting more involved with that aspect of Windows 10 going forward.

So my X won't do anything. I have a black screen and can bring up the Home menu but not do anything else. I've down the power button for 10 secs reboot and managed to do a full shutdown from settings but nothing is changing. Anyone else had and resolved this or do I need to take it back for a replacement?

 

EDIT: seems fucked and not uncommon from my quick Google. Wonderful.
