NIS America: Microsoft "Hasn't Been Very Supportive" of Japanese Games

NIS America: Microsoft

The updated guide shows sign-in, home, messages, achievements, parties, friends, broadcasts and a new action center.

Microsoft just shipped the new Fall Xbox update, bringing a revamped dashboard, 1080p game DVR recording, a new light theme, and many, many more new features.

Players can also look forward to the new home interface. With Halo Wars 2 bringing cross-play between Xbox One and PC players, this might be an opportune time for Microsoft to test the functionality and better its implementation.

Get a head start on Xbox One X (Launch Day Nov 7): Your console setup experience will be quicker for both new users and upgraders. There will also be blocks that gamers can use to access apps, people, and games that they use the most.

Apple Unveils New Emojis For iPad And iPhone
One benchmarking firm tackled that argument, checking models as old as the iPhone 5S for performance in iOS 9, 10, and 11. Hopefully, these benchmark results will finally put to rest the allegation that Apple is slowing down your iPhone.


Japanese developers have taken note of this and spoken out on why consumers don't see very many Japanese games on Xbox. I've had issues with Xbox downloads being seriously throttled in the past - my 75mb internet speed crawling along at 10-20mb most of the time. You can also back up games and console settings to an external drive or copy over your home network for a network transfer from one console to another. Still, as he correctly says, "it's a chicken and egg problem", meaning that Japanese companies don't find an audience on Xbox, but in order to attract one there needs to be Japanese titles coming for it. You can also download 4K content for existing games on an Xbox One, so you will hit the ground running after launching the Xbox One X. GameDVR has been updated to support more than 4K/HDR screenshots and game clips.

Right-to-left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew are now available.

Microsoft is yet to add these features to Xbox Insider preview versions, so the company will have to get a wriggle on it it wants them to be available before the end of the year.

The Fall Update starting rolling out earlier this week, so if you haven't already be sure to update your console.
