Sheesh. Microsoft is really going all out with these Xbox One videos. Earlier today we had one taking a closer look at the console's "unparalleled" multiplayer, and now there's another pair of videos offering up a bit of insider info on Xbox Live Compute, Kinect, SmartGlass and some of the racing accessories for Xbox One.
First off, what the hell is 'Xbox Live Compute'? It's essentially to do with the Xbox One's Azure cloud server gubbins, making use of the 300,000-odd servers that Microsoft will have up and running for the next-gen console when it launches. It enables developers to make use of the cloud for additional power and stuff, like Respawn's use of the cloud for some of its AI calculations in Titanfall.
It's not really anything that we haven't heard already, but the video makes for interesting viewing nonetheless. Then there's the second video featuring Major Nelson having a bit of an old chinwag with his mucker Branden Powell, Xbox Director of Strategic Alliances. He's there to take you through Xbox One's third-party steering wheels, and to remind you that Xbox 360 peripherals definitely won't work with Xbox One. Cheers, Branden.
You can take a look at both of the new videos below. Xbox One is out on November 22nd.
