SIPWU 8.2.13

What’s up SIP? I’m back from the boonies and ready to get my update on. Thanks to ROK for covering while I was gone. Not only did he manage to get the updates out, he managed to post them early…Which is something I haven’t done in a long time lol.

You couldn’t even turn it on half the time so I had to do all the updates with my iPhone (which isn’t fun). In a way, it’s kind of like the RROD only instead of an xXox it’s my HP Pavilion G6 (which are crap, don’t get HP laptops or the Pavilion for that matter).

While I was in Missouri, I discovered my cousin had the same exact laptop as me AND the same blue screen virus. He told me how to fix it and I haven’t had any problems ever since!

Now that I’m back in full force, let’s get rolling.

SIPWU 6.7.13 – One More Week

It’s the final stretch! Only one more week until E3! Next week, I’ll be writing down gaming news, going to the movies, golfing, and living my life…Going to be busy couple of days.

At least I’ll be gone the week after that (June 18th). I’ll be fishing, shooting guns, and talking to family I haven’t seen for a whole year. Can’t wait!

Enjoy the update guys.

Microsoft clarifies positions on licensing, connectivity, and privacy for Xbox One

Xbox One

wrcfan stopped by to let us know about new statements Microsoft is making with respect to game licensing, connectivity, and privacy in response to community feedback after the Xbox One reveal on May 21. This is a significant improvement over their previous strategy of continually reiterating “more at E3” and middling statements from various insiders.
