Last week, we learned that full body HD gamerpics we coming with Xbox One and you can now actually unplug the Kinect for the new system. Now IGN is up to its 3rd week of questions where we learn that Microsoft might be allowing for bigger party chats, demos will be able to download as you play ‘stream’ it and more.
- With the upgraded audio codec for chat, is 8 people still the maximum for Party Chat?
We are looking at higher limits on party size. It will be at least 8 people chatting at a time. We may either increase the number of people that can be chatting at once or potentially allow more people in the party channel if only a smaller number is chatting. Stay tuned!
- Do I need to download demos, or can I stream them?
Just like regular games, Xbox One allows you to start playing while the game continues to download.
- Now that XBLA is not its own thing and games are simply games no matter how they’re distributed, will digitally downloaded games release on Tuesdays, where XBLA titles hit on Wednesdays?
Games are games are games! You’ll see digital content flowing into the system constantly. We will continue to run different programs – like Summer of Arcade on Xbox 360 for instance – as well.
- Will we be able to have longer gamertag names?
No, we are staying with our current naming scheme for Xbox LIVE gamertags.
