Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Xbox One Developer Menu Unlocked With Hidden Cheat Code

Posted on Monday, December 2 @ 14:00:23 PST by

I've seen lots of developers access secret menus when playing unfinished game code by inputing the Konami code or another sequence of buttons on the Xbox or PlayStation control pads or even the Wii U GamePad, so it comes as no surprise that Xbox One owners can unlock a secret developer settings menu by remembering a code using the new controller's triggers.

Simply tap in Left Bumper, Right Bumper, Left Trigger, and Right Trigger in the System settings menu of your Xbox One. This will open the Devkit and Debug & Profiling menus you see courtesy Redditor LiamHing. Messing around with these settings or attempting to hack your Xbox One at all will probably result in broken warranty and potentially all kinds of wasted $500, so you know, be careful.

I was able to access the developer menu on my own "Day One" edition Xbox One as well, meaning potentially all Xbox One consoles have left this funny little loophole open for hackers, enthusiast developers, and people who don't know what they're doing alike.

It seems like Microsoft has been a little cold with the indie development scene lately, but that's not something I think the company wants to continue, so we'll keep an eye on how this new entry into Xbox One's hardware continues.

I'd expect Microsoft to patch the code out quietly by non-reacting now and securing the DevKit switches behind a pay wall of some kind. That's perhaps the company's smartest move in light of only moderate stock price growth through the launch of Xbox One. Consumers and investors don't seem totally uneasy with jumping back into Xbox's brand, but they're still timid among record high numbers on Wall Street.

I've yet to watch TV through my Xbox, but I played with Kinect both plugged and unplugged and the usability is much lower without Kinect listening for Snap commands and more. Are you going to risk your console's life and limb to explore this menu? Planning on making your Xbox a devkit when support is officially added? Talk to us in the comments.
