There used to be a time when a new console would hit the shelves and all you had to worry about once you got it home was which button was power and which button was reset. Nowadays, new game consoles like the Xbox One are all-in-one entertainment super-systems and you practically stumble upon a new feature or hidden app every time you turn one on. But if you haven’t yet had the chance to really get intimate with your Xbox One and learn all its juicy secrets, fear not, as the system has a number of nifty features hiding under the hood that we’re highlighting here. And with the recent New Xbox Experience update giving the console a much-needed UI facelift, there’s even more Xbox goodness to discover!
13. Backwards Compatibility Enhancements
Without a doubt, the most talked about new Xbox Once feature for 2015 is the addition of backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 games. While this feature is pretty much exactly what you expect it to be, one thing you may not be aware of is the fact that you can still take screenshots and video clips of Xbox 360 titles like you would with any Xbox One game. Simply double-tap the Xbox Guide button (you know, the big “X”) and you’ll be presented with the option to take a screenshot or record a video. Sure, this isn’t anything mind-blowing, but considering the only way to do this before was with an expensive capture card, it’s great news for anyone who wants to share their Xbox 360 gaming exploits.
