Xbox Live News with Pipper – June 9, 2013

Activision Xbox One PAX Aus 2013 Bandai Namco Xbox 360 Koei Tecmo Telltale Games


Welcome to another episode of Xbox Live News with Pipper. Once again I am your host – The Poid Pipper, and I am here to share with you the world of Xbox. In more recent news and some major backpedaling, the Xbox One has appeased at least some of its potential inventors by retracting previous requirements of an always online console and inability to share purchased games. But another way to make followers happy is to heavily discount recent releases with the current product. Let’s take a look at the current releases and deals for Xbox Live.

Be sure to tune in July 19th – July 21st as Microsoft is hosting three presentations at PAX Australia! The Xbox One will shown live for the first time, so mark one of these days down to see a live stream. Alternatively, if you live in the U.S. and cannot afford the trip across the Pacific, Comic-Con 2013 is occurring the same weekend and will have Microsoft attendance as well. If you cannot make either event and want to watch live streams, might as well grab your favorite console to “Play Hard or Don’t Play At All!”

Love video games enough to go to school for it!
