Bug-Tracker in the Authorized Xbox Test Program

Bug-Tracker announces the Microsoft Certification to be part of the Authorized Xbox One Test Program

We are pleased and proud to announce that Bug-Tracker has been approved as an authorized test vendor for Microsoft, becoming one of only twelve companies in North America in the Authorized Xbox Test Program (AXTP).

What is the AXTP?

The Authorized Xbox Test Program (AXTP) consists of Microsoft qualified third-party testing companies that have demonstrated the strong ability to test Xbox 360 and Xbox One games and other apps (Games For Windows LIVE, Windows Phone, Lakeview, Xbox LIVE on Windows), both functionally and technically in a secure environment. The program is managed by Microsoft’s Content Integration (CI) Certification team. Once authorized, the test companies are provided with the means of obtaining resources necessary to offer testing services for Xbox 360 and Xbox One games – direct hardware purchase and access to Certification requirements and test cases. The test companies are able to leverage their new knowledge and resources to start relationships with Xbox 360 and Xbox One game publishers for their specific Xbox 360 and Xbox One quality assurance testing needs. AXTP is intended to officially recognize some of the quality test vendors in the market as well as provide them with information to help them better deliver their products and services to publishers.


 

Having proven our ability in compliance, functionality and compatibility testing requirements in ultra-secure laboratories in Canada and China, Microsoft now entrusts Bug-Tracker to offer our unique services to help publishers and developers test Xbox 360 and Xbox One games, before it is submitted for Microsoft Certification.

As an authorized Xbox test vendor, and as always, Bug-Tracker guarantees the highest quality in porting, quality assurance, and localization.

The Future of Video Games

Oculus Rift VR

You’ve been dreaming for years of the future gaming world, your imagination is always bringing new ideas and it is because we are all dreamers that virtual can come true!

Great companies are working on it, for instance, Silicon Image with its 60GHz WirelessHD chipset, a standard to provide a wireless and high-definition A/V connection for applications designed to be streamed to a display at a wired-level quality of display; Exvision, a start-up spun out from the University of Tokyo. Among the many projects in their portfolio is a gesture recognition chipset and software system optimized for the NVIDIA GPU. Their gesture system is “designed to run on a single high speed CMOS Sensor”; or the newcomer, Oculus Rift VR, a revolution in the virtual reality recently purchased 2 billion dollars by Faceboook – Bug-Tracker had the chance to see it at the GDC 2013.

The Rift is highly anticipated by the gaming community, and there’s a lot of interest from developers in building for this platform,” said Zuckerberg. “We’re going to focus on helping Oculus build out their product and develop partnerships to support more games. Oculus will continue operating independently within Facebook to achieve this.” That means that, despite any fears that Facebook might somehow run this project into the ground, it sounds like Facebook will be pretty hands-off on anything besides funding. Zuckerberg knows that these guys need their space if they’re going to create the best high-tech headset possible.

Moreover, none can deny the usages for VR beyond fully immersive gaming. Zuckerberg cites the possibility of “enjoying a court-side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world, or consulting with a doctor face-to-face–just by putting on goggles in your home.” When you think about the long-term potential for VR and the Rift, should it take off, cool video games seem like a baby step towards an adulthood in a virtually interconnected world.

Playstation 4 as a leader


sony and playstation 4 take the lead over microsoft and xbox one

Playstation 4 vs Xbox One

As everyone knows, the two famous video games console constructors, Sony and Microsoft, had a big appointment not to be missed for the last Christmas with the launch of the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One. Without any doubt, the first battle has been won by the Japanese firm with around 4.2 million sales against 3 million for the American.

Only one winner

For the first time, we have an unanimous winner and its success – as well as the one of Microsoft – has never been seen before in such a short time! At this time, Sony is still leading with around 6 million sales and this can be explained with a price difference of 100 euros and, also because the Japanese counts many more countries where its console is present (57 today).

What’s next in a changing market?

Nevertheless, the industry changed a lot and if the “coregamers” bought the new consoles massively, will it be true for the rest of the consumers? Not that sure… Taking account of the new tendencies in this extremely competitive market, their success can be slowed down by the mobile devices boom.
