Video: Major Nelson's Unboxing of the Xbox One

The Xbox One is at least 3 months away from being a product that you can actually buy, but that doesn't mean you can't be teased now as to what you are going to get when or if you make the decision to pickup Microsoft next foray into your living room/gaming space. Xbox Live's Major Nelson gives you the rundown on everything in the Day One Edition of the Xbox One in the above video as well as confirming that there will indeed be a headset included in the box.

Additional videos for the Headset and Play & Charge Kit are also below.

Xbox does an 180* on their Xbox One DRM policies


The consumers cried and it appears Microsoft heard those cries. The now previous changes to how you experience your games on Xbox 360 will after all be exactly how you enjoy your games content now as Don Mattrick explains in an update filling us in on what is largely an about-face of policy. 

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.
Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.

Microsoft Confirms Kinect Launch Titles

When the 360 launched in 2005, it was accompanied by 18 games. Now, in 2010, as the release of the biggest accessory in the console's history looms, it looks like we'll only see a reduction of one overall title from the 360's actual Kinect launch line-up.

That's right, we'll be seeing 17 Kinect titles come the launch date of November 4th. Check out the full list below and let us know what you think will be awesome and what you think will be nothing more than a glorified tech-demo.
