Microsoft Announces Chatpad for Xbox One

According to Jones, Crackdown 3 will be heading exclusively to the Xbox One sometime in the summer of 2016. The fact that each game announcement came with an “available on Xbox and Windows 10” tag was impressive, and if their streaming platform can handle the strain of all its users, this link-up will be a victor. Also Microsoft at Gamescom, announced a new Halo 5 Competitive Gaming Tournament that will offer upto $1 million in prizes! It will contain a custom designed Xbox One along with the popular upcoming title – Halo 5: Guardians.


Gamers can also expect to interact with Cortana, Microsoft’s virtual personal assistant, once Windows 10 arrives for the Xbox One. One of the controllers, packaged with the console, features the same metallic design sported by the console as well as UNSC and Spartan Locke military logos. The company has also announced that the Halo-themed Xbox One bundle is now available for pre-order for $499, a report from Tech Times said.

Part of the recording feature includes scheduling, whereby recordings from OneGuide can be lined-up using your console, the Xbox app on Windows 10, or with Xbox SmartGlass on iOS and Android devices.

The Xbox One users will be able to record TV without requiring any subscription and stream games to any Windows 10 PC.

Hardcore video game players would definitely love Microsoft’s plans for the newest installment in the “Halo” franchise.


The Xbox One can control cable TV through a HDMI port, allowing owners to move between gaming and TV. Well, that’s not strictly true – we did mention that Xbox One is gaining backwards compatibility with many 360 games, but the humble Xbox 360 has a significant update of its own. Phil Spencer took charge of the press conference and showcased gameplay footage of some of the big Xbox One exclusive games scheduled to launch in 2016: “Quantum Break, Scalebound, Crackdown” and many others.
