Posted by | Last Updated : 1093 days ago Xbox TV launching this holiday season

Microsoft has confirmed plans to launch its TV service over Xbox Live by this holiday season.
The announcement was made by Ballmer at the Microsoft financial analyst meeting this week. Where he explained Microsoft is currently working with “dozens or hundreds of additional video-content suppliers,”. Microsoft will also let users navigate for video using Xbox’s motion-based Kinect system and use Bing to help users find and discover content. Ballmer said separates Microsoft from previous, failed TV-peripheral attempts by other companies, such as Google and Apple. Microsoft and the Xbox 360 have some experience in the live TV arena, having already done some similar kind of work with Sky TV in the U.K. and with FoxTel in Australia that lets the Xbox stream a limited number of linear channels.

Europe gets a New Wii Model, Lacks GameCube Support

Posted by | Last Updated : 1125 days ago

A new model of Wii is on the way this October, at least in Europe. These new Wiis will come bundled with a Wii Remote Plus, Wii Party, and Wii Sports. Nintendo of Europe says that the older Wii models will be phased out after this one is introduced this holiday season. The new Wii, according to Nintendo UK, is designed to sit horizontally instead of vertically and the console itself is smaller, reports Eurogamer. That may be thanks to the lack of GameCube controller inputs, a removal that’s due to the decision to ditch backwards compatibility for GameCube games. That said, the appeal of this bundle will likely fall on families and gamers that probably wouldn’t consider themselves hardcore Nintendo devotees
