Spencer promises screenshots, dashboard customisation and a new RARE game

Microsoft boss Phil Spencer has revealed that Xbox One will eventually support taking screenshots and will allow for customisation thanks to a dashboard with themes.

The PS4 has been able to share screenshots since launch, allowing users to post moment from their game on Facebook and Twitter and Spencer said it's coming to Xbox One too.

“People beat me up on screenshots and I know people like to customise the look of the dash .. we are going to deliver on them."

Spencer also revealed that Rare are working on a new project and he hopes that it'll be the type of game that Rare used to be known for.

"Rare's success is really important to us, and they have done a great job of being a cornerstone of our early kinect success with Sports Rivals, but I think its time for them to spread out and think about more. Thats the kind of push I gave them the last time we met, lets go and make an iconic Rare game that people centre on what Rare has always been about. I have not seen it yet, but if the pitch holds to their history I think we are likely to see something in that vein. They are such a rich studio with great franchises in their history, and hopefully their future."

Wii U had screenshots from launch, it's something I really miss when playing on Xbox. Curious to see what this new Rare game might be, maybe another reboot of an old IP like Killer Instinct, but I won't be getting too excited.

With the kinect pretty much dead they might actually make a proper game. Conker could be an option as they teased it with Project Spark.

Much as I love Conker I wouldn't like to see him end up in a shit game like Banjo did.

I don't get why people want a new RARE game. The RARE of old have all moved on (Most moved after the buyout)

Great, another feature they didn't thought out during development cycle. In PS4 there's separate CPU for that and all things background. It would come as no surprise if they'll do screenshots through Kinect command. LOL

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
