1) If you wanna lose weight, Xbox Fitness might work out pretty well for you. Its a free Xbox app that's coming out for November, free for the first year past launch. 4 famousy celebrity trainers.
I remember when I used to weigh 100 pounds. Now I'm like at 136... Or probably more since I haven't checked at the doctor lately. So this would be pretty cool for me. And its free. :D
Halo 4 — and possibly other Xbox games — may be coming to your PC and smartphone. According to a report from The Verge, Microsoft demonstrated cloud-based streaming technology at a company meeting today that showed 343 Industries' Halo 4 running on Windows PC and Windows Phone.
The Verge's report says the service was demoed on a Windows Phone with an Xbox 360 controller attached and a low end PC. Officials referred to the unnamed cloud service, which is reportedly powered by Microsoft's Azure platform, as a prototype.
Microsoft's Albert Penello recently talked about the possibility for Xbox One backwards compatibility through cloud-based streaming using Azure, saying it could be utilized for "more complicated things like rendering full games like a Gaikai and delivering it to the box."
"We just have to figure out how, over time, how much does that cost to deliver, how good is the experience," Penello recently told GameSpot.
And I didn't end up playing Halo 4 either. My 360 red ringed, so this would be pretty cool to get back to Halo 4. The one game I didn't end up playing. And Gears: Judgement, but eh.
3) I still don't understand what Carmack said about MS and Sony being hostile to AMD's Mantle API. Did it get announced that Steam is going to be using it, or are Sony and MS both going to be using it to combat Steam..
4) And well there's just this amusing interview with Swery 65 about D4. I still think it looks pretty cool, but its a shame its not a launch title. Actually it'll probably launch with XONE in Japan, so eh. That's probably a little while.
