On this Friday before a major Microsoft/PC Game release lets see whats going on in Video Game News:
Microsoft is releasing some Major updates to the XBOX One in anticipation of the Titanfall release on Tuesday. With improvements to the friends menu and chat defaults that many say should have been included when released.
Which leads to my speculation that the XBOX One wasn’t supposed to hit stores until now.

Sony keeps a low profile and sales keep racking up even amidst leadership changes: not sure if this is a good or bad thing but Sony keeps everyone on their toes. Jack Tretton stepped down as President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), after reading about this on IGN it makes me wonder is there something going on at Sony we don’t know about? Jack Tretton was onboard and worked his way up the ranks during the development of the Playstation since its initial release (Playstation, PS2, PS3, & PS4). He is replaced by Sony Network Entertainment International EVP and COO Shawn Layden.
Twitch comes to XBOX One in it’s full glory on Tuesday. Giving users the ability to broadcast games much like the PS4 was able to do at launch. I see this being an issue at first because some gamers have sketchy connections. Now add live broadcasting to the mix and I see problems, so the moral of the story is don’t broadcast if your network can’t handle it.
