This week Xbox announced that it’ll be adding new apps to both its Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, only days before the ‘Xbox: Game On’ briefing at E3 starts. The Game On briefing will have an expose for Xbox gaming enthusiasts to come in and take part and also find out what the company has planned in future although most of the events will only be strictly by invite and will be closed off to the general public, after which there will be a “Briefing post show” where developers and leaders will talk about what happened in the actual briefing and answer questions from the audience. Which makes no sense at all, why not just let them in? this sounds like Xbox has something huge to hide.
The company announced yesterday that it’ll be offloading 45 new applications to be included to the Xbox One and Xbox 360, even though a couple of the applications will only be available to Xbox users in America, but of all the new apps being blessed to the Xbox the most exciting undoubtedly has to be the emerging giant #TWITTER.
Here is a list of the new apps lined up to invade the Xbox One and Xbox 360:
- Antena 3, ChiliTV, Comedy Central, Crunchyroll, ENCORE Play, EPIX, Filmbox Live, Fox Play, Frightflix, FXNOW, Gol Tv, GoPro, HBO GO, iHeartRadio, Infinity, IVI, KDrama, Maxdome, MLG, MOVIEPLEX Play, MTV, NBA, NHL, Now TV, Picturebox, Popcornflix, ShowTime Anytime, Sky News, Sky Online, STARZ Play, STV, Syfy Now, Target Ticket, TuneIn, TV2, Twitter, USA Now, VEO, Vevo, VH1, Vine, WATCH ABC, WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney Junior, WATCH Disney X, Watchever.
On top of all of this Xbox Live Gold is giving five free games for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 this month, a move which might have been made in response to how PlayStation will now feature two games per format for PlayStation owners on PlayStation Plus.
