Aaron Greenberg Confirms DirectX 12 Increases Xbox One’s Power

Fable Legends

On January 22nd Aaron Greenberg (Microsoft Marketing Team Lead *across 1st & 3rd Party Game Studios) confirmed that DirectX 12 will be coming to Windows 10 and Xbox One and will have an effect on both systems. This will only be seen if developers make use of it. This is optimizing the power of the Xbox One with power that it already has, opening up more possibilities with games to come in the future.

The first game to see this performance enhancement that has been brought up is Fable Legends since this game will be merging players who are playing on Xbox One and Windows 10. In Fable Legends, players will be brought into the fantasy world of Albion for some of the best exploration and adventure found in the series, the adventure doesn’t have to be played alone it can be played with up to four friends who can be playing on either Windows 10 or Xbox One. Players can play as a hero with four separate hero’s and a fifth player can play as the villain where they control from a top down view and plays more like a strategy game.

Personally, I’m hoping that more games with take use of DirectX 12 and can’t wait to see what the future has to bring with the gamer experiences crossing Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Sony Blatantly Rips Off Microsoft Xbox Rewards With No Shame

SONY TO MS --- U MAD BRO

Sony was famous for being treated like trash last generation as their PlayStation 3 struggled to get any attention at all for the greater half of its existence. PS3 Released originally in 2006 with no games to speak of other than a few cult classics, if you can even call them that, like Warhawk and Resistance: Fall of Man which failed to move a respectable amount of units and confusing the entire game development world with the architecture of the cell processor causing many bad third party ports (or worse no port at all). It wasn’t until games like Uncharted 2 and LittleBigPlanet that the Sony PS3 started gaining momentum as a brand, eventually leading to where it sits today as one of the fan favorites (depending on who you speak to). All this time Sony has been playing the role of the underdog, and it turns out it was an act all along.

As the media suspiciously turns their backs on the Microsoft Xbox brand and now treats them like trash insulting the Xbox ONE before DRM was even announced (just as the PS3 was being bashed before the specs were even announced) now all of a sudden Sony feels king again and has begun to take actions that show their renewed egomania. Today, those actions come in the form of a complete identity theft of the Microsoft Xbox Rewards program by the Sony PlayStation brand.

For the past 7+ years the term “Xbox Ambassador” has been being used as well as “Achievements” pre-dating the PS3 trophy system, and today Sony has shamelessly decided that it would like to have the same benefits for its gamers but not only reward people for recruiting others to spend money on PSN to earn “Achievements” but also promise them the hopes of one day becoming a PlayStation “Ambassador” and “Grand Ambassador” even beyond that.

BitCoin Regulated by United States Government

The digital currency BitCoin has been the target of much controversy as the pirate’s choice of currency. “Newsubmitter davek writes with news that the U.S. will be applying money-laundering laws to Bitcoin and other ‘virtual currencies.’

“The move means that firms that issue or exchange the increasingly popular online cash will now be regulated in a similar manner as traditional money-order providers such as Western Union Co. WU +0.17% They would have new bookkeeping requirements and mandatory reporting for transactions of more than $10,000. Moreover, firms that receive legal tender in exchange for online currencies or anyone conducting a transaction on someone else’s behalf would be subject to new scrutiny, said proponents of Internet currencies. ‘I think it’s inevitable that just like you have U.S. dollars used by thieves and criminals, it’s sadly inevitable you will have criminals use a virtual currency. We want to work with authorities,’ said Jeff Garzik, a Bitcoin developer. Still, law enforcement, regulators and financial institution have expressed worries about the hard-to-trace attributes of virtual currencies, helping trigger this week’s move from the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCen.””
