Xbox One live gameplay broadcast feature could still be months away

Microsoft couldn’t deliver one of the Xbox One’s key features at launch: the ability to stream your gameplay, live, for anyone on the web to watch. Here’s more bad news: the company behind that feature, Twitch.tv, has no idea when it will launch either. According to a tweet from the company, Microsoft hasn’t yet provided any date, and it could be “a few more months” before it arrives.

What’s the hold up? We can’t say, but one possibility is that Microsoft hasn’t yet figured out how to deal with streams of an unsavory nature. Sony’s PlayStation…

Notch’s ‘Minecraft’ follow-up ‘0x10c’ officially dead, but its gameplay could live on

A game that takes place in a universe on the brink of extinction is now itself going extinct. 0x10c, a space-exploration game from Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson, won’t resume development after all. In April, Persson said he had put the game “on ice” as a result of a “creative block,” but indicated that he continued to support the project.

Without a doubt, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs is one of the most graphically-stunning games in development right now, and a new gameplay video has the best look that we’ve gotten at the title since last year’s E3. Our sister site Polygon has six minutes of in-game footage, which features the game’s protagonist infiltrating a facility using his ability to tap into security camera feeds and other technology in the surrounding environment. The resulting gameplay is a cross between stealth games and a high-tech Grand Theft Auto, as the character ultimately flees in a fast and flashy stolen vehicle.

The next entry in Electronic Arts’ visually stunning Battlefield series is set to be released this fall for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. EA DICE announced Battlefield 4 alongside a 17-minute trailer that opens on a couple of soldiers listening to Bonnie Tyler’s power ballad “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” and proceeds to showcase the cinematic setpiece moments that titles like Battlefield 3 and the Modern Warfare series have come to be known for. The first person shooter’s gameplay doesn’t appear to have changed much from the series’ last entry, but it’s hard to find many similarities to the 2002 title, Battlefield 1942, that started it off. The game will be available for $ 59.99.
