This Xbox One Tips and Tricks Video Shows Off Amazing Things Microsoft Won’t Tell You Your Console Can Do
If you bought an Xbox One on launch day, chances are that you’ve now played all your games for it to death, and exhausted the media options currently available on the console. But there is still a tonne of neat things the console can do that Microsoft isn’t singing from the hilltops, and that this great video exposes.
Now, granted, not all of these features are available in the UK yet (anything to do with the TV guide being the obvious ones) and some require separate hardware. But there are enough tips here to squeeze a few more quid’s worth of fun out of your newest toy. Using the SmartGlass app to play old Atari games, for instance, is a genius trick, and should work with just about any SmartGlass-compatible smartphone or tablet.

Console wars aside, gamers are in for a good year regardless of which home video game console they choose to purchase. We’ve already taken a look at the new titles headed to Sony’s PlayStation 4 and other PlayStation consoles this month, and now it’s time to shift focus over to Microsoft’s Xbox One and the previous-generation Xbox 360, which is still going strong. February is going to be a great month for Xbox fans with four titles debuting for the Xbox One including the highly anticipated “Thief” and a new Lego game, along with 10 new Xbox 360 games.
The full list of upcoming February releases for both consoles, which was compiled by IGN, follows below.
