Microsoft have today announced that more than 45 new entertainment app experiences are coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 globally. On top of this, for the US, the Xbox One will see a new Twitter integration with its TV and entertainment apps landing sometime before Christmas.


Twitter will be directly integrated into Xbox One’s TV experience in the U.S. Twitter will be optimized for the biggest screen in your house in a smart, contextual way offering the ability to see Tweets related to the cable or satellite TV shows you’re watching as they’re happening.


Additionally, the Twitter experience on Xbox One will be integrated into the TV listings section of OneGuide where you will be able to see the shows that people are tweeting about in real-time. These shows will also be highlighted in a new “trending” section within OneGuide so you know what’s popular right then and there.

A commercial break turns into a quick and easy opportunity to see what other viewers are tweeting about without pulling out your phone, swiping at a tablet, or taking your attention away from your TV.

Jana Messerschmidt, VP Business Development and Platform at Twitter, explains:

“People turn to Twitter every day to enjoy and engage in the real-time conversations about their favorite TV shows. We’re enhancing that experience on the Xbox One with a unique Watch with Twitter integration. It will now be easier to discover what shows are trending in real-time on Twitter, tune-in and follow the conversation right from within the Xbox One interface. We are excited to work with the Xbox One team and continue to deliver unique entertainment experiences.”

Today Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the game that’s already taken Japan by storm, selling more than 4 million copies in just over 6 months, launches in Europe for the Nintendo 3DS family of consoles.  At the same time, the new Nintendo 3DS Image Share service becomes available in Europe, allowing players to easily share images from their game to Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.

Nintendo 3DS

In Japan, where the game has been available since November 2012, it’s become a phenomenon on social media as well, with more than 193,000 fans eagerly following tweets from one of the game’s key characters: the town hall secretary Isabelle, who is always at hand to assist players in their new role as mayor. Japanese players have also been flexing their creative muscles with the myriad of customisation features possible in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and many images of their homes, custom clothing designs and unique town planning can be found on social networks.


The captivating life simulation now on Nintendo’s latest handheld console gives players the freedom to do anything they please as the mayor of an idyllic town inhibited by a wide variety of animals. Build your dream home, design clothes or curate the local museum with collections ranging from fish, bugs, dinosaur fossils and classic art to anything you’d like to put on display! Animal Crossing: New Leaf takes place in real-time so you can experience different things as time passes; while you live the life you always dreamed of, friendships develop and seasons change.


As new events unfold every day, Animal Crossing: New Leaf is perfectly suited to being downloaded directly from the Nintendo eShop, so the game is always on your console wherever you go. In Japan, where around a quarter of all sales have been of the digital download variety, fans have embraced the convenience of always having their town at the ready on their Nintendo 3DS. Whether playing alone or visiting each other’s towns in local or online multiplayer, Animal Crossing: New Leaf makes it a breeze to connect with other players and share the experience.


Players can also take snapshots of their favourite moments by simply pressing the L Button and R Button together at nearly any point in the game: a funny quote from a favourite animal, your proudest interior decoration, a beautiful moonlit night or your proudest accomplishment as mayor, it’s easy to fill up an album full of Animal Crossing memories.

Thanks to the Nintendo 3DS Image Share service, players now have a seamless way to share such memories on their Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr profiles too. Visiting this website on the Nintendo 3DS Internet Browser allows you to upload snaps and add comments directly to your social network accounts without having to close your game*!

A Special Edition Animal Crossing: New Leaf Nintendo 3DS XL console with the game pre-installed is also launching today

Today Twitter has launched its #music application following weeks of speculation. The service offers song recommendations based on the accounts that the user is following, and lets them stream tracks in-app through platforms such as Rdio, Spotify and iTunes.


Users will also be served track recommendations directly from artists and can share music with their friends, as well as see what they have been listening to.

“Today, we’re releasing Twitter #music, a new service that will change the way people find music, based on Twitter,” said the microblogging firm in a statement. “It uses Twitter activity, including Tweets and engagement, to detect and surface the most popular tracks and emerging artists.

“It also brings artists’ music-related Twitter activity front and centre: go to their profiles to see which music artists they follow and listen to songs by those artists. And, of course, you can tweet songs right from the app.”


Speculation about the service hit critical mass last week when Twitter announced that it had acquired music discovery service We Are Hunted.

Twitter #music is available for iOS devices via the App Store and as a web-based service. Native apps for Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices are yet to be announced.
