UnknowingFool writes "Microsoft has reversed course on another aspect of the Xbox One. Though Xbox One will come bundled with a Kinect sensor, the console will work without it. Critics were had suggested that an always-on video and audio sensor could be used to spy on users. Microsoft's Marc Whitten said, 'Games use Kinect in a variety of amazing ways from adding voice to control your squad mates to adding lean and other simple controls beyond the controller to full immersive gameplay. That said, like online, the console will still function if Kinect isn't plugged in, although you won't be able to use any feature or experience that explicitly uses the sensor.' This is the latest reversal from Microsoft since they killed the phone-home DRM and made it region-free." Read more of this story at Slashdot.

While Microsoft?s next Xbox won?t feature virtual reality headsets, it will try to do the next big thing by making your entire living room into a big video game screen. Microsoft on Monday posted a new demonstration video showing off the new Xbox?s IllumiRoom feature that projects aspects of games onto the walls surrounding your television set to increase immersion within virtual environments. The new feature comes with several options for filtering content if you?re not interested in having your entire living room transformed into a game world: For instance, you can choose to only have weapons or enemies displayed on the peripherals of your television set or you can choose to only have the bare outlines of the game

The PS3 and Xbox 360 ended this generation neck-and-neck in terms of sales. This is because, in the end, both systems provided a similar gaming experience. Aside from the argument of exclusives, the only major advantage the PS3 really had over the Xbox 360 was the vast storage capacity of Blu-ray discs. This generation, Microsoft caved in, and the Xbox One has adopted Blu-ray. However, Guerrilla Games -- developer of the upcoming Killzone Shadow Fall -- claims that the original build of the game was 290GB in size because the PS4 is powerful enough to build textures that high-res, whereas competing systems are not.

Microsoft?s Xbox One will allow you to play games offline for up to 24 hours a pop, says the company in a fresh explainer, but you?ll have to connect to the Internet thereafter or forfeit access. If you?re playing on someone else?s system, that 24-hour window drops to just one hour. Think of it as Microsoft?s Cinderella clause, only instead of a pumpkin, your system turns into a giant black-and-green brick.

Shares of Sony (SNE) and Nintendo (NTDOY) surged on Monday following a report from China?s official newspaper that claimed the country is considering the lift of a decade-long ban on video game consoles. An unnamed source told the China Daily newspaper that the Ministry of Culture is ?reviewing the policy,? and has conducted surveys and held discussions with other ministries on the possibility of lifting the ban.

China banned the sale of video game consoles in 2000 to safeguard children?s mental and physical development. In order for the ban to be lifted, the seven different

glowend writes "On 24 September 1993, computer users were introduced to Myst. Grantland takes a look at the game's legacy, two decades on. Quoting: 'Twenty years ago, people talked about Myst the same way they talked about The Sopranos during its first season: as one of those rare works that irrevocably changed its medium. It certainly felt like nothing in gaming would or could be the same after it. Yes, Myst went on to sell more than 6 million copies and was declared a game-changer (so to speak), widely credited with launching the era of CD-ROM gaming. It launched an equally critically adored and commercially successful sequel, and eventually four more installments. Fans and critics alike held their breath in anticipation of the tidal wave of exploratory, open-ended gaming that was supposed to follow, waiting to be drowned in a sea of new worlds. And then, nothing.' Why didn't Myst have a larger impact?" Read more of this story at Slashdot.

In a recent talk at LinuxCon 2013, Valve CEO Gabe Newell reaffirmed his belief that Linux, and open source platforms in general, are the future of gaming. Valve launched the Steam online gaming store on Linux in February of this year and the store is already host to 198 games. Valve is infamously tight-lipped about upcoming projects, but the prospect of a Linux-based ?Steam Box? has been in the works for quite some time, and Newell remarked during his talk that more information about the future of Valve in the living room might be right around the corner. ?The next step in our contribution to this is to release some work we?ve done on the hardware side,? said Newell. ?Next week we?re going
