Financing the latest technology is more popular than ever before. For over a couple of years now, mobile carriers have been pushing customers to pay monthly for smartphones instead of signing contracts. Most of these companies have phased out contracts entirely, forcing consumers to either pay for their phone upfront or pay for it over the course of several years. Today, Microsoft is taking a page out of these companies’ playbooks with the launch of Xbox All Access. Announced as a limited-time offer, this service is an option that bundles a new Xbox One S or X with Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for a monthly fee. expand full story

The Xbox One July Update just started rolling out today, and along with it come several very welcomed additions. FastStart and grouping are both included in this new update, with the former being my favorite addition.
We all have a horror story of day 1 updates to games or picking up our favorite title from a massive sale and being hit with a massive download size, only to realize it’ll be hours before you can start playing. FastStart can help remedy this on select titles, with that list growing as the exclusive-to-Xbox service gets more popular.

Microsoft has been teasing the new Xbox One avatar system for quite a while now. We first got a good look at the new online personas back at E3, but the system has since missed most of its early launch targets. We expected to see the system in place on Windows systems by the end of 2017, but it looks like most of that is getting pushed to next month or later. Just recently, a now removed video of the system was leaked on to YouTube giving us a much better look at what we are in for when the new Xbox/Windows avatars finally make it to prime time. expand full story
