xbox one at retail storesFor those who have not been able to purchase the Xbox One from Amazon India, they can now get it at any Microsoft retail store. Starting next month, the popular game console will no longer be restricted to Amazon stores.

Xbox one now at brick & mortar stores

According to sources, the sub-distributors have sufficient stock of this product and have also started with a trial run. As of now, the company has not approached any other retail stores to avoid piling up of unsold inventory, which happened with Xbox 360.

Microsoft earlier had to face several issues with the excess production of Xbox 360 consoles and all their measures to sell the stocks did not give positive results. That is why, they do not want to take any chances. Instead of distributing stocks through different sellers, they have decided to offer decent discounts to attract buyers.

Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft India director Anshu Mor said that the Xbox One consoles, games and accessories will be available with their priority resellers.  While retailing on Amazon.in gave them scale, they will be selling at stores to give a world-class experience to customers.Read the rest

The Biggest Scoops To Expect At Gamescom 2015- Games, Microsoft And More

Move over the E3— a.k.a. the Electronic Entertainment Expo to give way to Gamescom. Slated between 6 and 9 August, this is the biggest trade fair in the world of video games. The media event is due today and we have been waiting to get hands on what’s new and hot at the event that saw footfall of 335,000 last year alone. Why it has managed to beat E3 is evident since the latter is meant only for insiders while Gamescom opens up for everyone right from Day 2.

The Biggest Scoops To Expect At Gamescom 2015Why The Hype Around Gamescom?

Gamescom is THE place to be since all announcements that interest me and you–consumers, take place here. More so, the event showcases all the upcoming game releases for the coming year. Last year, the event announced a drop in the console pricing as well as an announcement for Rise of the Tomb Raider release for Xbox One.

Microsoft To Take The Lead

We expect Microsoft to take the lead at Gamescom. Given that it did make major announcements at the E3, we anticipate insight into release for games such as Quantum Break, Remedy, Scalebound and Crackdown. Gamescom will showcase all of the above games besides giving us sneak peeks into Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider and Forza Motorsport 6. Of course, we expect the Windows 10 story to creep in sometime via some update here.

Alert– Blizzard Fans Wake Up

If you are a Blizzard enthusiast then Gamescom 2015 is the place to be since something big is on cards for the same. We are unsure if a brand new expansion for Diablo is up Gamescom’s sleeve but we sure could see interesting updates.

Mafia III @ Gamescom

Publisher 2K is well known for its mediocre Mafia series that needs players to up ranks in an American mafia family of the 40s and 50s. While the game was no huge hit, we anticipate a sequel showcase for the same at Gamescom this year.

Bad News For Sony Fans

There is not anything that Sony will release or preview at Gamescom 2015 save the Guerilla Games from Killzone studio. In addition, there is a chance that it could give us details about the latest IP—christened Horizon Zero Dawn.

The Hardware Bits

Gamescom sure could floor us with in depth details about the HTC priming VR as well as the Oculus that are set to go out into the mart in 2016. Also, Nvidia could prep the show up at Gamescom given that it did not reveal anything at E3 this year.

While this could be all that Gamescom 2015 reveals, we will like to stay updated about anything else you come across. For more update, stay tuned to this space.

5-Year-Old Kid Figures Out Xbox One Vulnerability Which Leads To Backdoor Access To Xbox Live

A five-year-old kid from California, Kristoffer Von Hassel, has somehow managed to figure out vulnerability in Microsoft’s Xbox One, enabling him to gain unauthorized backdoor access in Xbox Live.

Robert Davies, the father of the five-year old boy, has protected his account but he noticed that his son was managing to gain access and play games he was not supposed to.

Kristoffer entered a wrong combination when asked to enter a password for his father’s Xbox Live account, leading him to a password verification screen. The boy then simply put in a series of spaces and hit enter, which allowed him backdoor access to the off-limits games in his father’s account.

Davies was quoted saying to CNN affiliate KGTV-10 in an interview that “How awesome is that? Just being five years old and being able to find a vulnerability and latch on to that. I thought it was pretty cool.”

Davies reported the vulnerability to Microsoft, which has claimed to fix the issue as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Microsoft has decided to reward the youngest security researcher with four games, a USD50 gift card and a year-long subscription for Xbox Live.
