Microsoft Shows Off the Xbox One’s Friend List in Action 0

For a long time now, Microsoft and Sony (and Nintendo, to a certain point) have been trying to promote their respective consoles as being geared towards social/community-oriented gaming, and while inroads have been made, it’s still nowhere near the levels achieved by PCs and mobiles (with a lot of people chalking it up to the fact that console owners really just want to play games and building a healthy community ranks way below “saying something rude and obscene through voice chat” on their list of priorities.)

Not that Microsoft has given up on their lofty goal. In fact, their most recent console, the Xbox One, will be providing some welcome improvements to the communication tools, particularly with the Friends List. Microsoft has recently released a video providing a close look at the inner workings of said Friend List, you can check it out below:
