Microsoft Planning Windows 10 To Xbox One Streaming With Full Keyboard And Mouse Support

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 July 2015 at 14:00

Up until now, Microsoft has been keen to make a big song and dance about Windows 10’s ability to stream Xbox One games to a PC. That’s all well and good, if a little niche, but what about the other way around? Microsoft’s on the case, with head of Xbox Phil Spencer revealing that it will eventually be a possibility.

It seems a much better fit than streaming from an Xbox One to a PC, and it means you could potentially keep your gaming rig as a desk set-up, as well as beaming it out to your television for some couch play. To help this become a factor, the Xbox One will soon be receiving and update that will allow it support keyboard and mouse inputs. [More]

AMD And Nvidia Released Updated Windows 10 Radeon And GeForce Graphics Card Drivers

Written by Joffy S on 30 July 2015 at 11:30

Both AMD and Nvidia have released updated graphics card drivers following the launch of Windows 10 yesterday. In a bit of a role reversal, an Nvidia driver clash proved a bit of a headache for GeForce owners, who found a conflict between Windows Update and the outdated drivers on Nvidia’s own website caused a number of issues.

By all accounts the upgrade for Radeon owners was plain sailing, but AMD has also issued its own updated Catalyst driver which should iron out any problems with the beta release. Both the AMD Catalyst and Nvidia GeForce drivers come with full DirectX 12-ready Windows 10 support. This unlocks all sorts of extra capabilities in your graphics card, the benefits of which we should begin seeing early next year. [More]

How to Delete Your Old Windows.old Installation Folder In Windows 10

Written by Joffy S on 29 July 2015 at 17:30

When you upgrade to Windows 10, Microsoft tries to make things as painless as possible for you. It's the reason why your old Windows installation is kept nice and safe in its own folder when you upgrade to Windows 10. That's great if you want access to your old stuff, and even better if you want to downgrade.

If you're limited for space however, you're going to want to get rid of it. If you are sure you want to keep Windows 10 and you have no intention of rolling back, then you can delete your old Windows installation in order to make room on your storage drive. This unused Windows file can be upwards of 15GB, which can take up a significant chunk on a Solid State Drive. [More]

Rainbow Six Siege Terrohunt Trailer Shows Us The Art Of Defenestration

Written by Neil Soutter on 29 July 2015 at 16:45

One of the most exciting things to come out of Ubisoft's press conference was the news that terrorist hunt would be returning to Rainbow Six Siege. Or Terrohunt as Ubisoft adamantly puts it. One of the most popular modes from previous Rainbow Six games like Vegas and Vegas 2, Terrorist Hunt features a squad of cooperative playing working together to take down an army of AI enemy terrorists.

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for the mode, showing us just how this mode will work. It's also accompanied by the rather spurious claim that it's an interactive trailer. The only thing you'll be doing is clicking occasionally to learn a bit more about various gameplay aspects. Don't let that detract from the fun of watching things blowing up though.  [More]
