Xbox One March Update

On the heels of the recent February Xbox One update, Microsoft is now rolling out the big March Xbox One Dashboard update that brings with is a ton of new features and optimizations. Most are focused on the multiplayer and party chat features, but there's a lot more to it than that. If you've got your eyes peeled looking for that Twitch.tv live streaming feature, that one's not ready quite yet. You'll have to wait until March 11th, when the feature launches alongside the release of Titanfall. We're also still waiting on the external hard drive support, which Microsoft says is coming, but has yet to give any solid release date for.

To see the list of what's in the March Xbox One Dashboard update, hit the jump to see the video and feature play-by-play. Also, don't miss our look at the elusive white Xbox One console!

Nintendo 3DS XL Yoshi

Nintendo has announced a new Yoshi-themed Nintendo 3DS XL console that's set to launch in conjunction with Yoshi's New Island on March 14th. The console is green, and features Yoshi running, being followed by a Yoshi egg. It should be noted that the console doesn't come with Yoshi's New Island as you might assume--that'll cost you a separate $39.99 if you want it. The 3DS XL itself will cost $199.99.

What do you think? Are you gonna pick up the Yoshi-themed 3DS XL? You can pre-order it now at Best Buy.

Twitch Xbox One broadcast

Twitch streaming is finally coming to the Xbox One. Exclusive to the Playstation 4 since launch, Twitch allows live broadcasting of your video game session for others to watch in real-time. Now, on March 11th (the same day as the launch of Titanfall,) Xbox One owners will be able to get in on the action. Speak a simple command to Kinect to make it happen--"Xbox, broadcast"--and your stream is live.

Twitch says that the Xbox One version will offer enhanced features that support chat, following, and picture-in-picture in any corner so that you can interact with broadcasters.


Since a lot of people were curious about if the WWE Network would be available on Apple TV, and how it would look compared to the other platforms out there, I went ahead and put together this video walkthrough and review. There are a bunch of pros to using an Apple TV for the Network, but one caveat that can be seen as a con.

In this video I cover:

  • How to subscribe to the WWE Network on Apple TV and skip the signup issues plaguing other devices
  • How to link your Apple TV purchase to your WWE.com account so you can access the Network everywhere
  • How to link your Apple TV purchase to other Apple TVs
  • How to use AirPlay to send WWE Network content from your iOS device to an Apple TV wirelessly

I also give an interface tour and my overall thoughts on how the WWE Network looks and feels on Apple's set-top box. I'll be doing more videos focusing on other devices as well, so if there's one you'd like me to focus on, feel free to contact me on Facebook or Twitter and let me know. Keep an eye on our YouTube channel (you can subscribe here!) to see the new stuff as it drops.

If you like what you see from the Apple TV, you can pick one up here from Apple.
