    Microsoft Testing USB Cameras For Streaming Use On Xbox One

    29 days ago - By GameInformer

    Microsoft have announced that they are testing the use of USB cameras for Microsoft apps like Mixer and Skype.
    The new webcam testing, which is available to Alpha Ring insider members, should allow Xbox One owners to take a USB camera used for their PCs and plug them into the Xbox One for the same function.

    It's one of the last oddities of gaming: The “Duke” controller. I first saw one in an FYE store, probably in December of 2001. There was one of those demo stations that used to be in every electronics store, this one an original Xbox-brand-new at the time-running Munch's Oddyssee. I stepped right up, eager to play, and tried to wrap my very-normal-sized-person-hands around this enormous saucer-sized controller. That was the Duke, the original gamepad for the original Xbox.
