Microsoft's next Xbox — Project Scorpio — is shrouded in mystery, but we now have a clue about its dashboard interface.
Since we know that Microsoft is hard at work on Project NEON, an all-encompassing design refresh focusing on translucency, we've been wondering whether Xbox would see the same visual design refresh in the future. It now appears that Project Scorpio could have something else entirely.
Microsoft watcher h0x0d recently discovered a LinkedIn profile that directly references not only Project NEON, but a new "Motion" design language destined for Project Scorpio. The Xbox One is currently using the MDL2 design language, typical of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
The Software Design Engineer even links to our own article on Project NEON, while discussing a new "Motion" design language for Scorpio. He also talks about how Scorpio's 6 TF of computational power will benefit Project Scorpio's visual interface.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard from Capcom is a true return to form for the series, mixing horror, a first-person perspective, and an intriguing story in one amazing package.
It also features numerous types of collectibles to discover. This guide features screenshots and descriptions of every Antique Coin collectible, which help you unlock new weapons, items, and achievements!
As a special bonus for Xbox gamers, Resident Evil 7 also happens to be an Xbox Play Anywhere title. If you buy the game digitally from the Windows Store, you get access to both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions, with full cross-save support.
See on the Windows Store
Pelicans in your Pocket
Antique Coins are a collectible with a purpose. At two points in the game (the Trailer safe room in the Yard and the Swamp safe room), they can be exchanged for three items: Steroids (3 coins), a Stabilizer (6 coins), and the 44 Magnum pistol (9 coins).
There are 18 Antique Coins on Easy or Normal difficulty. Madhou...
Native Beam streaming has already enjoyed just over a weekof testing on the Xbox Insider Alpha ring, and now it looks like it will soon make its way to those on the Beta ring. Speaking in response to a user on Twitter, Xbox's Brad Rossetti says that current plans are to bring Beam streaming to Beta users this week, though that depends on getting an Alpha build out that fixes broken multiplayer first.
@jbrown9070 Yes the plan is this week - however we need to get the fixed build out to Alpha first so we unblock MP ):— Brad Rossetti (@WorkWombatman) February 20, 2017
Beam streaming is just one of the many new features and changes coming to the Xbox One with the upcoming Creators update, but it's sure to be one of the biggest. Following testing in the Beta ring, we should see Beam streaming continue to roll out for testing in last two ring, Preview Rings 3 and 4, ahead of a full release later this spring.
In any event, if you count yourself among the Beta ring faithful, you'll likel...
After a 4 day early access period for buyers of the Ultimate Edition, Halo Wars 2 is now generally available on both Xbox One and Windows 10.
The Xbox Play Anywhere title can be bought once, played on both platforms, but only if you grab the digital copy from Microsoft. Physical versions still don't offer this functionality.
Halo Wars 2 has been eagerly anticipated, and well worth the wait as our own Jez Corden found out in his full review:
Between Multiplayer, Blitz Mode, and Halo Wars 2's stellar 2-player co-op campaign, there's truly something for everyone in this wonderfully polished package. This is the best RTS on Xbox One today, by far. And it's a stunning entry in the Halo pantheon.
Grab it right now and join the fight!

Jumping back in time to medieval conflict, For Honor emerges more brutal and confident than ever.
In recent years, Ubisoft gained a reputation for developing franchises around a universal formula. Although the publisher has continued to grow alongside its established franchises during the past decade, the company appeared to follow a certain model across its biggest properties.
However, during this period, we also began to see some of the company's biggest franchises start to lose their identity. Ubisoft began to shift in a new direction when sales eventually began to dwindle, though some refreshing concepts emerged from the publisher as of late. Following the company's recent endeavors into multiplayer-centric titles, with The Division and Rainbow Six Siege, For Honor is a brand new franchise built from the ground up with an online ecosystem in mind. With a class-based, arena multiplayer experience at its core, the game strives to be a unique package among other triple-A titles.
Green Man Gaming, a popular online shop for buying PC game codes, has announced it has started selling Xbox Play Anywhere codes. Starting with Halo Wars 2, Green Man Gaming will offer an alternative spot for picking up Xbox Play Anywhere game codes that you can then redeem for the full game on your Xbox One or Windows 10 PC.
If you're unfamiliar with Green Man Gaming, it's grown in popularity as a storefront for buying PC game codes online in a similar manner to Steam. Like Steam, Green Man Gaming often offers up some pretty significant discounts on popular games, making it worth keeping an eye on.
Right now, Halo Wars 2 is the only Xbox Play Anywhere title being offered on the store, but it's significant to see this emerge as a route around the Windows Store. We expect more Play Anywhere title to hit the store in the future, but for now you can check out the Halo Wars 2 listing at Green Man Gaming, where it's currently going for $49.99.

So you are not only an Xbox owner, but you are also a big shooter fan looking for what to play next? We've got you covered.
What makes a shooter? This article specifically covers shooters where the camera is set in either the first or third person, and gun-based combat makes up the primary core of the experience.
For the longest time, Xbox has been considered the home of console shooters, with its pioneering Xbox Live network atop the Halo franchise. The situation hasn't changed! Here are our picks for the best first and third-person shooters on Xbox One.
Updated February 20, 2017: We updated this list to include Sniper Elite 4 and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, because they're both wonderful picks for fans of stealth and horror shooters.
Battlefield 1 is without a doubt, the quintessential shooter experience available on Xbox One today. It's unprecedented, and dynamic open-world shooter gameplay soars to all new heights with environmental destruction not seen in t...
Surprise! Microsoft is launching a full Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile, complete with Xbox integration and Realm support.
We recently learned that Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows Phone 8.1 devices will no longer receive updates, initially dashing hopes of us being able to take our Windows 10 Realms beyond our PCs and tablets. Thankfully, we have learned that Microsoft was working on a Windows 10 Mobile version all along.
Say hi to Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile!
Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile will launch today, bringing with it the latest Pocket Edition features, including the coveted Ender Update for mobile devices. Additionally, Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile will bring dedicated Realm support to Windows phones for the first time. If that wasn't enough, Minecraft: PE will also include a ton of Xbox Live achievements.
While Minecraft: Pocket Edition for Windows 10 Mobile is a different platform to the Wi...
Windows 10 PC and Mobile users have been enjoying MyTube! for years, but soon Xbox One owners get to join the party.
MyTube! is what I'd call a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) superhero app, showcasing not only how a universal Windows App can be beautiful but also exemplifying all of UWP's most powerful features.
We put together a quick video to showcase what MyTube! Beta looks like on Xbox One right as it rapidly heads towards to a full public rollout.
As expected, MyTube! for Xbox One is a huge step up from YouTube's official efforts. MyTube! not only disables ads by default, but it's far faster than YouTube and lets you manually set the visual quality of a video.
As a fully featured app, MyTube! will also allow users to browse and submit comments, share video from their phones and PCs, and vice versa, and eventually download video to play offline.
The latest version of the Xbox Insider Program now has the UWP File Explorer, and we've heard file picker support is on th...

Ooblets, an indie title that's been intriguingly described by its developer as "Harvest Moon meets Pokémon meets Animal Crossing," will see its initial release on Xbox One and PC. The game will see not only the support of Microsoft, but it will be published by Double Fine, which has been behind indie classics like Grim Fandango, Psychonauts and Broken Age.
In a blog post today, developer Glumberland made the announcement, touching on where development will go from here:
We're going to keep doing what we've been doing, but we now have a lot more support from people who know what they're doing, so we'll hopefully be avoiding a lot of dumb mistakes we were otherwise planning on making.
Given its influences, Ooblets definitely looks like it will make for an interesting romp once it's released. According to Glumberland, the game packs in not only the charm of working the land and interacting with a town full of characters, but also the adventure of exploring the world to collec...
The fine folks on the Xbox team don't make it easy to keep an eye on all the cars are in the Forza games, because there are so many of them! That's great for us as gamers, but there's a lot of information to digest.
The Forza Horizon 3 car list is complete, for now, so we compiled a giant list of each and every vehicle you'll find within the game. They're arranged alphabetically below and split by letter, so hopefully it'll be easy enough to see if your favorites made the cut.
Updated February 22, 2017: We went back through this list and updated it with all the most recent car packs. You'll still find information of the leaked cars we've yet to see at the base of the list.

Whether the Xbox One S will be your first Xbox One or a replacement of an older system, we know you want to find a great deal on it. The console is frequently discounted (sometimes seemingly at random), but your true best bet is to get one as part of a bundle deal. Often retailers offer extra controllers, a year of Xbox Gold Live or even various games with the system at no additional cost. Searching for the best deals can be frustrating and time consuming, but we've got you covered.
Here are some of the best the Xbox One S bundles deals that are currently available around the web.

A new batch of games are hitting the Xbox One backward compatibility list, led chiefly by the likes of Borderlands 2 and Assassin's Creed Rogue. Those two are just the tip of the iceberg, however, as Xbox's Larry Hryb has announced that there are 4 additional titles hitting the list today as well.
Other arrivals include Gyromancer, which is an interesting fusion of RPG and puzzle gameplay from a collaboration between Square Enix and Pop Cap. Also hitting the list is Moon Diver, which is a side-scrolling co-op action game in which you fight to reclaim a ruined earth in the year 2081.
King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match has also joined the list, offering a retro King of Fighters arcade feel with an absolutely gigantic roster. Rounding things out is Space Invaders: Infinity Gene, which brings 143 stages that start out as classic Space Invaders and gradually evolve as you play.
Don't forget that Borderlands 2 is set to go free for Xbox Live Gold members as part of March's Games wit...
The steadily growing list of Xbox Play Anywhere titles just increased by one with Ruiner, a gritty cyberpunk shooter destined for Windows 10 and Xbox One. Check out the game's trailer below:
Ruiner developer Reikon Games promises not only a moody atmosphere, but also highly engaging gameplay. Here's a quick taste of what to expect from Ruiner, from Xbox Wire:
So, what is Ruiner? Basically, it's a top-down action shooter created in the spirit of cult-cyberpunk anime. Our fourfecta is exciting gameplay, compelling storyline, amazing graphics, and sound that immerses you in the experience. We picked our music very carefully and we're proud to have the tunes of artists such as Sidewalks & Skeletons and Natalia Zamilska in the game. Master Hirasawa Susumu's music is in Ruiner as well (it took us a year to sign him)!
From the sounds of things, Ruiner will offer plenty of action with little rest. The emphasis is on "dancing and dashing" around your enemies, taking them down in...
