    South Korea Monitors Their Border With Microsoft’s Kinect, at Least Somebody Found a Use for It

    For the Xbox One, Microsoft pulled out all the stops and developed an incredibly powerful version of the original Kinect, and pretty much no one cared, because they just want it to be $100 cheaper like the PlayStation 4.

    Xbox One Will Be Guarded By Sharks In Lead-Up to World Wide Release

    We thought it wasn't going to get any weirder after "giant Xbox full of zombies" thing that Microsoft pulled two weeks ago. Apparently we were wrong. In anticipation for the gaming console's release across 10,000 countries, they stuck one of the Xbox Ones in a tank and are guarding it with sharks. No, really. Big ones.

    This new video showing off the Xbox One doesn't focus much on games. Instead, it gives an in-depth look at the user experience, menus, and apps.

    Internet Explorer's new mascot, Inori Aizawa, is a personification of Internet Explorer who fights robots with blue screens of death, which we're surprised no one at Microsoft noticed before this video went out. She also has a Facebook page dedicated to furthering the personification of IE as an anime girl, so we're a bit creeped out.

    It looks like we were right about the impending doom inside of Microsoft's giant Xbox One, which is strange, because we weren't at all serious. It opened yesterday and unleashed a horde of zombies on Vancouver, and a bloodbath—no, wait, they were actors playing zombies, and no one got hurt.
