    From the article:

    "Media Player DLNA and MKV support Members of the preview program who have also downloaded the latest version of the Media Player app will now have support for DLNA streaming. With this update, you will be able to easily access and play music, watch photo slideshows or movies stored on home media servers and devices that support the DLNA server protocols. Additionally, you will now be able to playback MKV files stored on a USB device or a device on your home network that supports DLNA streaming."
    -------------------------------------

    People are speculating that the Plex app won't be far behind this XBone update. This is a good thing.

    Nhl15 is a joke on any platform. No buy.

    The gameplay in NHL 15 is pretty good. It's missing the online league mode on XBone and PS4 from previous years. It's also missing the Entry Draft for Be a GM mode (the CPU automatically drafts for you), but apparently this will be patched in soon.

    None of the omissions affect my enjoyment, as I just play Be a GM mode. I find that the menus are a bit more of a pain to navigate in GM mode, but it'll just take some getting used to.

    The gameplay is really solid though, and that's the most important thing for me.

    The Plex App for XBone is nearing completion.

    This will allow me to stream pretty much any media from my PC to my TV through my Xbox, which is cool.

    Can't wait for MGS5 and Final Fantasy 15. The gameplay and visuals look insane

    Shadow of Mordor looks pretty great. I'll probably wait for a sale and get it on PC.

    With what little time I have I play is Destiny. Great to play in short spurts to get your mind off stuff.

    The Xbox One just received an update which now enables streaming video via DLNA and supports MKV formats. About time.

    GTAV is such a struggle to play through. The story is so cartoony and all over the place. And who is actually playing all the little things like darts, boat races, etc. On one hand it's great that the game is huge, on the other it is overwhelming.

    Yeah, it's pretty much the same as every other GTA game. It is lots of fun, though. I have it for the XBOne, but I doubt I'll finish it.

    I've never like GTA. I Feel like I miss 90% of the game.

    Don't hold your breath. Neither Sony nor Microscotch have caught up to Sega Dreamcast yet.
