Microsoft has already had some past ties with Machinima with their time on the Xbox 360. Now they are taking that to the next level with the next generation Xbox One with a brand new companion app that is exclusive to Microsoft.
This new app will provide an abundance of different content including videos, game guides, and reviews. The best feature is that this app can be accessed during games by what Microsoft is calling “Snap,” which allows for two things to be going on at once by putting something else on the screen alongside the game. In this case, you can pull up the Machinima app beside the game and access game guides for when you get stuck or just for reference.
A similar app will be coming to devices that use SmartGlass that will have similar abilities as the Xbox One version. This app will launch alongside the Xbox One on November 22.
