Microsoft to shutter Xbox Entertainment Studios

Quote
Following the 18,000 layoffs Microsoft announced this morning, the tech giant has also confirmed reports that it will be closing its Xbox Entertainment Studios division within the next few months.

Though the closure of Xbox Entertainment Studios will drastically reduce Microsoft's plans for original Xbox programming, corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios Phil Spencer claims that a few key projects will live on. "Xbox will continue to support and deliver interactive sports content like 'NFL on Xbox,' and we will continue to enhance our entertainment offering on console by innovating the TV experience through the monthly console updates," Spencer wrote in a statement to Recode.

According to Variety, it also appears likely that the Ridley Scott-produced Halo prequel Halo: Nightfall will survive the death of Xbox Entertainment Studios, both because it's quite a ways into development already and because Microsoft is currently in negotiations with Showtime to broadcast the series on premium cable alongside its Xbox debut.

I guess that doesn't disappoint me too much.  Other than always wanting more competition for things like Netflix and cable to drive better shows everywhere.

This bit from Phil Spencer's memo though might be a little concerning

ReddX Reddit app now available on the XB1 with some nice voice control features.   Not a huge Reddiit user, but I might actually download the app to try it out

Looks like a new feature was added into the current preview build for XB1.  Gold member can demo certain games for 24 hours

DLNA support off the USB stick was added as well

This is a sign you're getting your butt kicked Buy a Xbox One and get a game free Game value has to be 59.99 or less and disc based.  This includes bundles.  US only and select retailers from 9/7 - 9/13

Another sign is the fact that they still haven't released actual sales figures. When Sony does it any chance they get.

I would also like to see sales figures by country. Assuming that the Bone has sold 6 millions consoles, how many of those are in the US? Is this a case where the console will do well in the US because of brand loyalty but fail miserably in all other significant markets?

Either way 6 million consoles in less than a year is nothing to laugh at and even if the Bone "loses" this generation it will still be a major player.

I think these incentives are smart. If I hadn't pre-ordered the Xbox One Sunset Overdrive bundle coming in October I would have probably jumped on this and a copy of Diablo.

IIRC, they're way ahead of where the 360 was at the same time in its release.  It's just that the PS4 is ahead of where both were...

Msft looks like an awfully temping short, with Windows 8, Windows Phone, the surface and the Xbone. 

Just saying, don't wish it for those that have the Xbone, but I'd imagine things in Seattle aren't all that pleasant.

Sweet now the PS4 needs to jump on board.


Side note: Welcome back Purge long time no see. Also, thank you for updating your picture, the old one made you look like a serial killer.

woohoo, Purge is back.  Long time no see.  What have you been up to these last 9 months?  (cripes, it was a long time)

I'm still amazed that either console launched without DLNA support.  I'm not big on using it these days, but I would use it now.

me thinks that the 'lack of support' was due to both companies trying to push their own cloud based streaming services or some such BS.

I never left. I was waiting for there to be something worth saying.

I am constantly disappointed that gaming has devolved to a VHS/Betamax argument.

I own one, not the other (and at this point I have more important things to spend money on). I have very little gaming time, and have taken a break from writing as I simply can't commit the time. My time to game likely won't change a ton though a cold autumn might persuade me to play a little more.

I intend to distill anything I have to say into, short, concise blurbs. We'll see how that goes. Tongue

Has anyone had a good/bad experience working with MS for a faulty disc drive?  Mine still mostly works but more often than not it now fails at identifying a blu-ray disc on the first try or two.

I want to get it fixed since it's the primary movie-machine for the kiddos, but I also don't want to lose access to Destiny for weeks and weeks right now if the turnaround time is terrible.

They replaced mine no questions asked. Shipped it out with packaging to return mine. I returned mine and all my saves were still there since they were in the cloud. Obviously would have been nice to never have the issue but they replaced it without even a hiccup. It was painless as could be, I was without an xbox for all of five minutes.
