Channing King Indianapolis Star Published 4:22 PM EST Nov 8, 2018 As someone who has purchased two Xbox One consoles, I'm not here to knock the platform. Contrary to what "pundits" on internet comment sections say, the Xbox One is a good machine, with good games. Its Game Pass program is a great deal at $10 a month, and Microsoft's recent acquisition of a number of studios, including Ninja Theory ("Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice"), bodes well for next generation. Oh, yeah..."next generation." Like Sony's PlayStation 4, the Xbox One is marking its fifth birthday. The original Xbox lasted four years, the Xbox 360 eight. While won't be shuffling off this mortal coil this year or next, new machines are on their way.

REUTERS/Kevork Djansezian It's already possible to use a digital assistant with the Xbox One games consoles, but your options are quite limited. Microsoft, as you'd expect, integrated Cortana functionality. However, using Cortana requires having the now defunct Kinect hooked up, or relying on the microphone in a headset. That could soon change, though, as there's evidence Microsoft is opening up Xbox to other assistants. As Windows Central reports, an image has appeared of a new option in the Xbox One interface under preferences for digital assistants. You can opt to "enable digital assistants," but there's specific mention of Cortana, Alexa, and Google Assistant. If this turns out to be a real feature added as part of a future Xbox update, it could unlock the use of smart speakers to control your Xbox. … [Read more...] about Xbox One to Support Alexa, Google Assistant, report says
PLAYER.ONE Playerone The long-rumored Spyro the Dragon remake has finally been confirmed by Activision and developer Toys For Bob. Called Spyro Reignited Trilogy , the remake will contain Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage! and Spyro Year of the Dragon. Along with faithful recreations of the original Spyro games, the trilogy includes a new score reimagined off of the original Stewart Copeland composition. Fan-favorite (and voice of SpongeBob SquarePants) Tom Kenny has returned to provide updated voiceover work for all three games.
