New Machinima app coming exclusively to Xbox One


Microsoft has announced a new Machinima app coming exclusively to Xbox One when the console launches on November 22. It will take advantage of the console’s Snap mode, enabling gamers to do two things at once on the same screen. Saying “Xbox, Snap Machinima” while playing a game will bring up the app on the right hand of the screen, providing access to game walkthroughs, reviews and more.

Available for select Xbox One games, the Machinima app’s ‘Wingman’ feature will let players watch walkthrough videos while they continue playing, or on the full-screen if they pause the game. See how it works in action with Xbox One launch title Dead Rising 3 in the video above. A Machinima experience for SmartGlass will also launch on November 22, providing users with access to second screen content on smartphones and tablets.

    Cool but honestly I have certain grudges against Machinima or rather to some of their stuff so I really don't care.

    I guess that's pretty cool but it's not enough to make me want the One more than the PS4 since I can just look up a walkthrough on my PC or laptop without having to share TV space between my game and my walkthrough.
