Xbox Smart-watch

Back in 2013, there were rumours that Microsoft was planning on launching an Xbox branded smartwatch. However, the Redmond giant tested a few prototypes and probably decided that it wasn’t a great product.Now, images of one of these prototype Xbox smartwatches have leaked out on the internet, and it looks a lot like the Apple Watch. Funnily enough, the Apple Watch was released two years later, in 2015. Maybe… just maybe, Microsoft’s smartwatch could’ve been huge had the company decided on releasing it to market. The specs certainly were decent:

  • 6GB storage
  • Magnetic connectors on the back
  • 1.5-inch display
  • Replaceable watch-straps

Whether or not Microsoft missed out on the smartwatch ship, we may never know, but I find it hard to believe that it’d have done the company any harm.

Blizzard games recently updated the team-based shooter game, Overwatch, with a hidden patch for Xbox One consoles that will disable voice chat for players with “Avoid Me” badges. These badges identify players who’ve been repeatedly reported on Xbox platform for toxic behaviour like bullying.

Although the offenders will be allowed to stay in the same matchmaking pool, disabled voice communications have the potential of reducing abuse. Earlier, these “toxic” players were placed into separate matchmaking pools which led to higher time in finding matches.

AI learns how to Re-Create Games  by Observing Someone Play

Unlike other popular AI in the market, which are capable of analyzing and learning video games to beat professional players, a group of researchers from Georgia Institue of Technology is working on observing video games to re-create them in real time.
