Microsoft's Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Yusuf Mehdi guided players through a demo of the Xbox One's snap feature in the latest video for the home console slated to launch on November 22.
The system's Kinect-based snap commands allows players to watch TV, surf the web and check on their friends list during games like Forza 5
, the racing game Mehdi happens to play during the demo. Our recent impressions
of the Xbox One's dashboard features noted that the system cannot snap two games side-by-side, as the operating system gives priority to games like Forza 5
and Dead Rising 3
. Besides, you'd have to be some kind of secret octopus
to pull off a feat like playing two games at once.
