Microsoft Norge:
-----------------------
I løpet av denne uken slipper vi en oppdatering for et begrenset antall Xbox Preview-medlemmer på Xbox One, og i de kommende ukene vil vi også komme med en oppdatering til Xbox-appen (beta) på Windows 10. Vi gleder oss veldig til denne oppdateringen da den legger grunnlaget for å bringe enda flere personer og spill sammen over flere enheter gjennom Xbox Live.

Dette vil bli den første av to større oppdateringer denne sommeren, hvor høydepunktene er starten på en sammenslått Xbox og Windows Store, og introduksjonen av de største PC-spillene med Spillhuber på Xbox Live. For mer informasjon, sjekk ut vår Xbox Wire-artikkel, som inkluderer en videogjennomgang med Mike Ybarra, «Director of Program Management» for Xbox: http://news.xbox.com/2016/06/06/xbox-on ... e-preview/

I mai gjestet vi et beta-program som samlet tilbakemeldinger fra over 2000 studenter og undervisere fra over 100 skoler i 26 land verden over. Deres detaljerte tilbakemeldinger hjalp oss med å finpusse opplevelsen over et variert sett av læringsmiljøer.

Den tidlige tilgangen til Minecraft: Education Edition som vi lanserer i dag inneholder nøkkelfunksjonalitet fellesskapet har fortalt oss er viktige for å forbedre læringsmiljøet, inkludert enkelt samarbeid i klasserommet, ikke spillbare karakterer (Non-Player Characters/NPCs) og kamera og portfolio funksjoner som gir studenter muligheten til å ta skjermbilder av arbeidet deres og samtidig dokumentere utviklingen av prosjektene sine.

A Record-Setting E3 2016 Kicks Off a New Era of Gaming

By Mike Nichols, Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox posted on June 28, 2016 at 9:00 am

Two weeks ago at E3 2016 in Los Angeles, we shared more new hardware like Xbox One S and Xbox Design Lab, more new Xbox Live features across Xbox One and Windows 10, and the biggest lineup of exclusive games than any E3 in Xbox history. But more importantly even than the amazing year in front of Xbox gamers, we laid out a vision that will give gamers more innovation and more choice than ever before. We want to take gaming forward to new heights, as Xbox has always sought to do, and what we shared at E3 2016 serves as a key milestone toward that future of innovation and choice we believe gamers deserve.

At Xbox, we see a future full of choice – choice to play the games you want, with the people you want, on the devices you want. A future beyond console generations, where you can upgrade your experience on your own timeline without missing out on the newest games or shared experiences with your friends.

On behalf of everyone at Team Xbox, thank you for making this year’s E3 one of the best and most memorable in our history. Your passion and feedback is what fuels us and helps us make Xbox a great place for everyone to play, and we were blown away with your record-breaking response to the news and vision we shared at the show. Since E3:

- The Xbox E3 2016 Briefing was viewed over 6.6M times, an increase of 78% over last year and our most viewed live event to date.
- During the week of E3, videos shared on the Xbox YouTube channel were viewed over 27M times, a massive increase of 184% over E3 2015.
- Xbox received hundreds of E3 award nominations and wins from global outlets including IGN, Game Informer, Toronto Sun (CA), USA Today, Atomix (MX) and Polygon.
- In excess of 340,000 unique, customized controllers were created and saved in the all-new Xbox Design Lab.
- The “Friendly Update” for Minecraft that delivered Minecraft Realms to mobile and Windows 10 devices, has seen over 4M people play together across Minecraft: Pocket Edition and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition via Xbox Live.
- Over 4M friendships were forged and 90M hours of multiplayer were played on Xbox Live during the week of E3 – that’s more friends than the whole population of Panama and over 10,000 years of consecutive gaming.
- The response to the Halo Wars 2 Beta exceeded expectations with over 1M matches played, totaling more than 1.2M gameplay hours. The data and feedback gathered will play a crucial role in the development of the game, ensuring Halo Wars 2 is the RTS for everyone when it launches on Feb. 21, 2017.
- In excess of 2M fans engaged with the newly launched Xbox Snapchat channel, checking out exclusive updates from the show floor and behind-the-scenes demos.
- On Twitter, #XboxE3 was tweeted over 400K times throughout the course of E3, trended as the #1 topic worldwide for over an hour and a half, and was the most tweeted of any Xbox hashtag.

All told, your passion and excitement during E3 marked a big week for all of us the here at Xbox, and in the months ahead, we’re committed to delivering the best games, the best gaming community and new hardware options to keep you engaged and excited.

Led by amazing new hardware, new Xbox Live features created with gamers in mind, and 12 games that are either exclusive or coming first to Xbox One and Windows 10, here’s just a short list of some of things we have coming to Xbox fans in the next 12 months:

NEW HARDWARE

Starting at the new base price of $299 USD, Xbox One S is the smallest and most compact Xbox ever. The 40 percent smaller console has an internal power supply and supports 4K Ultra HD for Blu-ray movies and content streamed from partners like Netflix and Amazon Video. High Dynamic Range (HDR) support for video and gaming delivers richer, more luminous colors in games like “Gears of War 4.” The Xbox One S is available for pre-order now and will be in stores beginning in August.

Pre-orders for the limited launch edition 2TB Xbox One S are off to an amazing start and it’s not just fans who are excited by the Xbox One S, our retail partners are just as enthusiastic.

“With all the new innovation we’ve seen and experienced with Microsoft’s new Xbox One S console, we anticipate this creating excitement among our customers,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of Merchandising for GameStop. “The new sleek design and the ability to watch Blu-Ray movies and stream video in 4K Ultra HD with HDR is sure to make the new Xbox One console one of our most sought after products when it launches later this year.”

Every Xbox One S sold comes with the new, Bluetooth enabled Xbox Wireless Controller, which is also available individually worldwide starting in August for $59.99 USD. Xbox Design Lab customized Xbox Wireless Controllers are open for orders now in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico for $79.99 USD; personalized laser engraving is also available for an additional $9.99. The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller – Gears of War 4 Limited Edition is available in very limited quantities in early October for $199.99 with pre-orders now at select retailers.

NEW XBOX LIVE FEATURES

Starting this summer, Xbox One and the Xbox app will receive the first of two updates that will help you stay connected with friends on Xbox Live and enjoy even more games across your favorite devices. Cortana will come to Xbox One; we will start to unify the Xbox and Windows Stores; we will begin to introduce your top PC games with Game Hubs to Xbox Live; we will enable Language Region Independence to give gamers the freedom to choose any supported language on Xbox One, regardless of their location; we will enable background music playback, and more. These updates are crucial to giving our fans around the world a great gaming experience wherever and whatever they play. See some of these new features in action in this video from Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3. And coming later this year, Clubs, Looking for Group and Arena on Xbox Live will unite gamers together across different devices, and make competitive gaming more accessible and fun for all.

GAMES

We have an unrivaled lineup of games coming in 2016 and 2017 which to date have garnered hundreds of E3 award nominations and wins from media worldwide. Additionally, games like ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and more will support Xbox Play Anywhere – where you digitally purchase the game once and you can play on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, with your progress, game saves and achievements shared seamlessly across both platforms.

I dag på gamescom tok Aaron Greenberg, markedssjef for Xbox, og satte i gang showet ved å se tilbake på et minneverdig år så langt for Xbox, i tillegg til å gi alle et glimt inn i noen av de spennende tingene som ligger i fremtiden.

Et kjapt tilbakeblikk
På E3 i juni snakket vi om vår forpliktelse til å la spillere spille uten grenser ved å gi flere valg i hvordan og hvor de kan spille. Vi presenterte Xbox Play Anywhere, et program som lar deg kjøpe et digital spill en gang for så å spille det på både Xbox One og Windows 10 PC, og vi snakket om noen nye Xbox Live-funksjoner som gjør det enda lettere å finne og spille med andre spillere - Clubs, Looking for Group og Arena – alle tilgjengelige på Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, iOS- eller Android-enheter. Vi snakket om spilling for alle og hvordan vi jobber hardt for å sørge at spillere skal få muligheten til å velge og tilpasse deres egen spillopplevelser for å gjøre de morsommmere, kompetitive og respektfulle.

Etterspørsel rundt Xbox One S
Vi har sett enestående etterspørsel for Xbox One S i Europa og resten av verden, og i dag kunngjorde vi to nye konsollpakker for FIFA-fans i Europa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada og USA med Xbox One S FIFA 17-pakken – tilgjengelig med 500GB eller 1TB harddisk. EA SPORTS (tm) leverer den neste utgaven av den mestselgende sportsfranchisen i verden, med eksklusivt innhold i FIFA Ultimate Team for Xbox-fans. EA Access*-medlemmer vil også få spille FIFA 17 først eksklusivt på Xbox One fra og med 22. september – en uke før lansering.

Konsollpakkene inneholder komplett spillnedlastning av FIFA 17, tre Ultimate Team Loan Legends, en måned med EA Access og den mest kompakte Xbox-en til dags dato: Xbox One S (1TB-utgaven inneholder også en bonus Ultimate Team Rare Player Pack). Xbox One S er den eneste spillkonsollen denne julen som inkluderer en innebygd 4k Ultra HD Blu-ray-spiller og HDR-støtte for film og spill, med veiledende pris fra 2990,-.

ID@Xbox når en ny milepæl
På indiespill-fronten markerer vi på gamescom tre-årsjubileumet for kunngjøringen av vårt ID@Xbox-program. Siden oppstarten har ID@Xbox-teamet jobbet med utviklere om å lansere 300 titler, hvorav mange av disse har introdusert innovasjoner som har dratt oss mot fremtiden i spillindustrien. I dag delte Chris Charla at vi jobber nå med over 1000 utviklere i over 60 land, som fortsetter med å bringe sine visjoner til live på Xbox over både Xbox One og Windows 10.

Vi annonserte også utvidelsen av Xbox Game Preview til Windows 10. Dette programmet gir spillere muligheten til forhåndstitt og kjøp av titler som er under utvikling, delta i utviklingsprosessen og hjelpe utviklere med å gjøre Windows 10-spill så gode som mulig.
