This week, Microsoft revealed the Xbox One is launching Nov. 22 (a week after the PlayStation 4), gamers spent $2.88 billion on games in the second quarter, and video production studio Area 5 releases its I Am Street Fighter documentary on YouTube. We also take an in-depth look at what the Xbox One’s cloud features will be good for, and what it might stink at.
