Last weekend my youngest daughter mentioned she wanted to play Roblox more than a few times and as she usually talks almost nothing but Minecraft, I decided to find out why the sudden change. Roblox is an adventure game by Roblox Corporation and was originally released in 2006 and then on July 16, 2014 for the Google Play store.
We already have the Xbox One SmartGlass application which allows people to access their Xbox Live account and do a few things like tweak your avatar or experience second-screen gaming on select Xbox One titles. We knew it wouldn’t be long before this was expended and more of Xbox Live would become more available through your Android device. This is exactly what Microsoft has announced today.
The other day news came out that Microsoft was gearing up to release some of their more classic games onto Android with the first game slated for release being the original Age of Empires. There was also speculation that other titles would soon be following as well. Today Head of Microsoft Studio Phil Spencer came out to clarify a few things regarding the news from a few days ago.
While a few major gaming sites have their own live streams set up for the upcoming E3 2013 press conferences, TwitchTV also have their own official live stream of the press conferences coming up. Not only that, the company will also be covering booths and other aspects of E3 2013 live as well. The first press event is that of Microsoft’s Xbox event but there are a total of four major press events today.
Microsoft’s Xbox SmartGlass application has had an update pushed out that owners of tablets that are bigger than 7″ will be happy about. The new update that has arrived today brings with it support for large tablets, not just those that are 7″ in size. That isn’t all that the update contains but it is the biggest feature.
The recently released Xbox Smartglass application from Microsoft received an update yesterday that brings with it support for 7″ Android tablets. Up until now the Xbox Smartglass application was only available for Android phones and even then it wasn’t every phone but at least it was available for a good portion of them. Tablets, on the other hand, were completely left out in the dark.
We knew this was coming awhile ago, actually back in January of this year. Well now it has finally arrived onto Google Play. What are we talking about? Microsoft’s My Xbox Live application for Android is what we are babbling about right now. However, before jumping right into this, there are a couple of things you need to know.
Back in the beginning of January we wrote about the fact that Microsoft looks to be developing an Xbox Live companion app for Android. This came about thanks to a job posting looking for a software engineer with Android and iOS experience for an Xbox Live mobile application.
If you follow this site on a regular basis then you already know about a great little app called Splashtop Remote HD which will let you stream whatever is on your PC/laptop onto your Android device. This is great if you want to play browser MMORPGs or any other browser game for that matter.
Not enough coffee this morning perhaps or possibly just over excited but someone jumped the gun a little bit over at the Xbox team and let loose a bunch of information of what Microsoft is planning to announce at E3 this year. You had to be quick though, it was only live for a couple minutes.
