The conclusion is that they would be up to release a title that had certain level of awareness already among the Xbox One audience.

Xbox One update: What's new?

On Monday, Microsoft released the Xbox One Fall Update, enhancing several of the experiences on all Xbox One consoles.

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Microsoft's Head of Xbox Phil Spencer said development was now on track for a launch before the end of the year.

Google Maps Pulls Calorie-Counting Feature After Criticism
Others noted, however, that other mapping apps have long had similar features (though not with the whole cupcake aspect). Not only that, but the feature also revealed how many pink " mini cupcakes " in equivalent calories they would burn.

How to stay safe from Spark's Wi-Fi fault
Meanwhile, a patch is coming for recent Apple devices in the next few weeks while Linox patches already out or coming soon. KRACK requires the hacker to be in range of a target's Wi-Fi, so it can't be done remotely.

Islamic State jihadists forced out of Raqqa
Raqqa's stadium also served as an arms depot and one of the Islamic State militants' largest jails in their self-styled caliphate. The SDF took the National Hospital after fierce fighting overnight and early on Tuesday, said spokesman Mostafa Bali.

The new Xbox One dashboard is now available for all Xbox One and Xbox One S users, with "more great features" coming soon. This includes a new feature for when you've left your console idle that'll provide time-sensitive notifications in a way that'll be visible from far away, hoping to catch your attention while texting or stuffing your face with food. You can now also choose between different themes for the Dashboard. Players can gain faster access to the controls of the party or broadcast section with this new version. It performs in a similar way to how it used to, but is now much quicker to browse and switch sections. Moreover, the highly anticipated Xbox One X is scheduled to be launched on November 7. It gives you the ability to pre-install 4K patches (for the games that have them, of course) so once your new console arrives, you're instantly ready to go. 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.

Streamers might be interested to know that the update also brings a heavier focus on Microsoft Mixer, the company's livestreaming platform. If you don't have an external hard drive set up though, now's the time. If you enjoyed the Xbox 360 GUI, then this will definitely trigger nostalgic feelings of the lighter elements of the Xbox 360 home menu.

There's even a hidden speed boost available to owners of the Xbox One with Kinect. Pressing the guide button now brings the guide to the forefront and all the features are now laid out horizontally.
