What Can Xbox Do To Win E3?

When the curtains open and Microsoft takes the stage they have to be ready for a new war. If it wasn’t obvious during last year’s E3, then the months after should have made it clear that they are no longer the darlings of the console world. Where the Xbox 360 succeeded, the Xbox One is now an unknown. There was a community around the Xbox 360 that overshadowed anything that Sony could do with its PlayStation 3. Game after game after game on the Xbox 360 was outperforming the PS3 and doing so handily. Developer after developer after developer focused on the Xbox 360 above all else.

Game DVR Sharing Comes to YouTube on Xbox One

I know you’ve been waiting on an easier way to get your gameplay videos and clips onto YouTube.  Tomorrow is the day that it will become easier for you.  Microsoft is updating the YouTube app on Xbox One to include sharing of your Game DVR/Upload Studio creations.  I think the popularity of the game sharing on Xbox One will surely increase.

Now, use Game DVR to capture epic gaming moments, edit them in Upload Studio, and, with the simple click of a button inside the YouTube app (look for My Uploads, In Settings, elect to “Share game clips” and “Share on social network”), share them instantly to your YouTube channel. The updated YouTube experience also allows you to watch YouTube videos in Snap Mode, add individual YouTube videos to your Pins, earn Media Achievements, and add your YouTube channels to OneGuide for instant access to YouTube videos right next to your favorite TV listings or App Channels.

Xbox 360 owners don’t feel left out because GoPro is launching for you.  I’m not sure how many of you are into GoPro type content but it’s coming.

Xbox Makes Perfect Choice, Phil Spencer

When the changes at Xbox first began there were two names that immediately wanted to see leading the Xbox division at Microsoft.  Aaron Greenberg and Phil Spencer.  Today Microsoft chooses one of those names and I couldn’t be more excited about the direction of Xbox now than ever before.  I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Phil Spencer.  He’s one of the most passionate people at Microsoft when it comes to Xbox.  And the dude has swag.  (smile)


I think confidence and swag is an important part of the Xbox division.  It can’t be run by someone just pushing pencils with no real passion for the community and engaging the audience.  Phil has all of this.  He’ll convince fans of Xbox with the way he can capture your attention.  When I first met and spoke with him, he and I talked about Alan Wake.  It was one of the best conversations I can remember having.

You can read a little bit from Phil himself about the news.

“This past year has been a growth experience both for me and for the entire Xbox team.  We’ve taken feedback, made our products better and renewed our focus on what is most important, our customer.  Our mission is to build a world-class team, work hard to meet the high expectations of a passionate fan base, create the best games and entertainment and drive technical innovation. As we continue forward, this renewed focus and mission will be a foundational part of how I lead the Xbox program.”
