Xbox One Update Expands Xbox 360 Game Support: Play ‘Halo: Reach,’ ‘Fable III’ And ‘Portal: Still Alive’ Now.

Taking place before the events of the original “Halo,” the game follows a team of soldiers as a human colony is invaded by alien Covenant forces. “Halo: Reach” joins “Halo: The Master Chief Collection,” “Halo 5: Guardians” and “Halo: Spartan Assault” to provide the most complete “Halo” experience on Xbox One to date. “Fable III,” “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” and “Kane and Lynch 2” have also been added to the list. With a score of 90 on Metacritic and the recipient of numerous accolades, “Portal: Still Alive” is an essential addition to any Xbox One game library. Gameplay is the same as the original: puzzles are completed using a gun that can create portals, which are used to build momentum, move objects or even redirect enemy bullets.

It’s not just “Portal” that’s gaining support. “Braid,” “Doritos Crash Course,” “Hydro Thunder,” “Iron Bridge,” “Motocross Madness,” “Ms Pac Man,” “Peggle,” “Spelunky,” “Splosion Man,” “Ticket to Ride” and “Zuma’s Revenge!” have also made their way over to Xbox One. The update also made improvements to the general speed of the console, thanks to a new “One Core” operating system that moved everyday tasks to more easily accessible locations. At the update’s launch, Microsoft promised more Xbox 360 titles were coming, and Thursday’s news suggests it intends to make good on that promise. “And this is just the beginning,” said Larry Hyrb, director of programming for Xbox Live. “We’re continuing to work with our publishing partners to grow our library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility titles, so stay tuned for more.”

BMW and Nissan roll out dual-plug EV chargers across the US

24 Dec 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

BMW and Nissan partner to create joint fast-charger network in the US.

BMW and Nissan announced Monday that they have teamed up to launch a public network of fast-charging stations across the country, challenging Tesla’s Supercharger network.CNN Money calls the Tesla Model X “the new king of crossover SUVs.” In its round-up of its favorite luxury SUVs of 2015, CNN places the electric ute on the top of its list.

The Model X’s EV powertrain, excellent acceleration and handling and cool design and technology features (including much attention paid to its slick Falcon Wing doors) earn it high praise. With dual 50 kW DC Fast-charging station with both CHAdeMO and CCS (Combo) connectors incorporated into each station, Nissan LEAF and BMW i3 drivers will be able to travel virtually range-anxiety-free. The breadth of Nissan and BMW’s fast-charger buildout is expansive, with fast chargers now available in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, North and South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

These 50 kW stations can charge EVs from Nissan and BMW up to 80 percent in about 20-30 minutes, as compared to the longer time required to recharge at a Level 2 (240V) charger, currently the most commonly available public charging station. When the network will be completed, however, is not yet known. “Drivers can easily locate the chargers with ConnectedDrive in the BMW i3 — either using the in-vehicle Navigation or by using the BMW i Remote App — or via the Nissan EZ-Charge smartphone app,” read the joint press release. “Additionally, these chargers are compatible with the Nissan EZ-Charge cards.” This is a significant move. Since the launch of Nissan LEAF – the world’s best-selling electric car – Nissan has reinforced its commitment to zero-emission mobility with investments in EV charging infrastructure to serve the needs of LEAF drivers in markets across the U.S.

Nissan also recently introduced the new 2016 LEAF, which has available best-in-class range of 107 miles, making it the first affordable EV to get more than 100 miles on a single charge. All LEAF models feature an 80kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, providing a highly responsive, fun-to-drive experience. BMW i is focused on the development of visionary vehicles and mobility services, inspiring design, and a new understanding of premium that is strongly defined by sustainability.
