Is Microsoft missing an opportunity with Xbox Play Anywhere?

Is Microsoft dropping the ball with Xbox Play Anywhere? We want to hear from you.

Back in 2016, Microsoft unveiled its plans for Xbox Play Anywhere, delivering a variety of cross-platform benefits between Xbox One and Windows 10 PC games. Further pushing its unification of platforms, the program merges purchases, saves, and multiplayer across select titles. Every big Microsoft title now offers Play Anywhere support, with Gears 5, Halo Infinite, and Crackdown 3 also expected going forward.

However, beyond Microsoft’s own titles, Play Anywhere adoption has been mixed. While over 50 titles are now supported, only a handful of major blockbusters hit Windows 10’s Microsoft Store. Has Microsoft missed out on an opportunity? This question was posed by one Windows Central forum user….

Vreal might (one day) be the best way to watch VR content

Vreal has the potential to become the next big thing in VR.

Until Vreal made an appearance in Steam’s Early Access program, there really wasn’t a method for watching VR gameplay that was true to the content. Sure, you can still watch Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) videos on YouTube or Twitch, but once you’ve watched a clip in Vreal, you won’t want to experience recorded VR in any other way. Or, at least, that’s the developer’s end goal.

I gave the free Vreal app a go to see what it’s all about, and I’m convinced it can be something big as long as it does a few things right.

Medieval cemetery simulator ‘Graveyard Keeper’ joins Xbox Game Pass

This is quite surprising.

According to developer Lazy Bear Games, Graveyard Keeper is the most inaccurate medieval cemetery management simulator of the year. Players build and manage their own graveyard while finding shortcuts to cut costs, expand into entertainment with witch-burning festivals, and scare nearby villagers into attending church. In many ways it’s like a business simulator but you can commit absolutely horrendous crimes like throwing corpses into the river to save plots.

Anker’s new $20 PowerPort Cube fits plenty of power in its compact design

Power for everything you own!

The Anker PowerPort Cube 3-outlet 3 USB port ultra compact power strip is down to $19.54. This is a brand new product from Anker and doesn’t really have much of a pricing history to speak of. It sells for $26 normally and has dropped down to just over $21 with a coupon code recently.

This is about as small a power strip you can expect to find, especially considering it manages to fit six plugs (3 AC outlets, 3 USB ports) in a compact fashion. The USB ports have a max output of 18W and the outlets have a max of 1250W, which is plenty of power for whatever you’re plugging. At less than 2.5 cubic inches, it won’t take up any space wherever you choose to put it. Anker also backs it up with an 18-month warranty.

They have struggled against the lethal elements, fought mutated beasts, encountered paranormal horrors, and suffered the flames of civil war. Now, in Metro Exodus, they must flee the underground tunnels and lead a band of “Spartan Rangers” on an incredible, continent-spanning journey across a desolate Russia in search of a new life in the East.
