  • Custom Gamerpics are Finally Coming to Xbox

It Will also leverage HEVC for encoding 2160p, 60 frame-per-second (FPS) video for game DVR and streaming.

"Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" has been on the wishlist for some time now but head of Xbox One Backward Compatibility, Bill Stillwell, has poured more cold water on the prospects of it coming soon.

Then there's a game that offers a fun arcade take on poker, the 2008 puzzle game "Poker Smash" which offers seven unique game modes and eleven immersive environments, as well as the chance to go up against others in the "Poker Smash" community.

Xbox Insiders will be able to test out a new Xbox One update coming out later this month.

A lot of the new features were announced over on Major Nelson's blog. The Arena app allows anyone to follow and participate in similar events, and includes results reporting and direct access to matches.

There will also be improvements arriving in areas such as clubs and Looking for Group, or LFG.

Custom gamer pics, a much-requested feature, will also be entering testing with this Insider update. However, unlike numerous other features outlined by Microsoft today, this is one that will "be in preview longer than other features to ensure it's great for everyone when released".

Achievement hunters, this one is for you! Clubs and Looking for Group will see a number of changes, too, and you can find out more about these in the link above. According to Microsoft, the new games won't be ruining the base machines.

Club owners and admins can pin a post at the top of their Club feed.

My Games and Apps will have a filter that can separate Xbox One and 360 games and the console is getting captive portal support for wireless connections.

If you've been waiting for a time to pick up an Xbox One console, the time may be now. You'll soon be able to select the audio input and output for party chat right from within the app.
