While the launch of Microsoft's Xbox One console was recently delayed in China, the Japanese launch came and went earlier this month with little fanfare. Xbox consoles have always struggled to gain consumer support in Nippon, and the Xbox One is no different. Still, the Japanese availability creates the opportunity for more types of software to be created, which non-Japanese consumers can choose to import or download.

The first Japan-exclusive Xbox One game Chaos;Child launched alongside the system. It even has a free demo that non-Japanese players can get without much effort. Meanwhile, two more Japanese games were recently announced at TGS: Raiden V, the latest in the venerable shoot 'em up series, and 'Azito X Tastunoko Chronicles,' a simulation game. These join Sega's already-announced Puyo Puyo Tetris. Read on to learn more about the upcoming Japanese Xbox One games and how to get the Chaos;Child demo!

Don't know what the word means? Just ask Cortana

As Microsoft and the Cortana team continue to refine the powerful AI and assistant, more features are slowly popping up online. A new one noticed by numerous people in our audience is definitions, powered by Oxford Dictionaries.

Load up Cortana and directly ask her 'What does _____ mean?' alternatively, 'What is the meaning of ____?' and the personal assistant from 500 years in the future pulls up a nice little card, complete with the word category and multiple definitions while exclaiming "I've found the meaning of…".

My Top Windows Phone Photography Apps

Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Photography Apps

While it may be a coin toss as to which genre of apps, weather or photo, are more numerous in the Windows Phone Store there is little doubt that we are fortunate to have plenty of quality choices with both.

I have got several photography apps installed on my Windows Phone and this week's roundup is going to focus on some of my favorite photo editors. These are photo apps that I have found helpful for quick fixes of photos as well as apps that can add a creative flair to images.

Now before you pass out the pitch forks and torches, there are plenty of photo apps out there that are solid Windows Phone apps such as Fhotoroom, Nokia's Creative Studio, , ProShot, Phototastic and even Fantasia Painter. While these are all quality apps, the apps in this week's roundup are ones that I currently find myself using with regularity.

What's your favorite Xbox game on Windows Phone?

It's Friday, so we should have some fun. What's more fun than talking about your favorite Windows Phone game with Xbox? Earlier this week Microsoft released Age of Empires: Castle Siege for Windows Phone (and Windows 8.1). It's an awesome new game that plays similar to mobile games Clash of Clans and Cloud Raiders. Unlike those two games, you can directly control your troops during attacks AND you get Xbox Live integration.

The most recent update to the evolving Skype client for Windows Phone brought location sharing, a useful feature if you use Skype for frequent peer to peer messaging.

Users can just tap the '+' sign and instead of sharing a photo, they can choose their position, creating a little map and a hyperlinked address within the chat. Tapping that address brings up a full-screen map and you can then use the up arrow icon near the top to send to the Windows Phone mapping system to get directions to the location.
