Like our Hidden Gems? Then welcome these Microsoft employees to our forums!

35

We are slightly past the halfway point in our 12 Days of Hidden Gems campaign, co-sponsored by Microsoft, and we figured we would expand things a bit.

If you recall, we recently announced that some highly valued Microsoft engineers and developers are assisting in our forums, working with people on Windows 10 requests and features. Now, we are growing that project with more Microsoft reps, focusing on Hidden Gems.

Goodbye, Windows Central

Over two years ago I met Daniel at Build 2012 on Microsoft's campus in Redmond. Little did I know that meeting would lead to an incredible journey at Windows Central and now a new chapter back on Microsoft's campus.

We bid farewell to our Managing Editor, Sam Sabri

310

We say goodbye and give thanks to Sam Sabri as he heads off to his next adventure!

The season for change is upon us as we approach 2015 and New Years. Some of it is good, some of it is sad. For the last two years, Sam Sabri has been on my right-hand side, helping the Windows Central site grow into one of the largest Microsoft sites on the planet. He is also a good friend. It is with this sentiment that it saddens me to announce his departure from the Windows Central team.

As it turns out though, this is actually a joyous occasion too. Although we are losing an esteemed member of our staff, Sam had an opportunity that he just could not pass up. We jokingly refer to it as 'getting called to mothership' but in reality, it means he is going to work for Microsoft.

To say that we are proud of Sam is an understatement. We certainly respect his decision and couldn't be happier for him and his future at Microsoft!

Here is our list of the most anticipated Xbox One games in 2015

83

This year was somewhat of a soap opera for the Xbox One. At the beginning of the year Microsoft was trailing Sony in console sales and they were still recovering from the lashings they received for introducing the Xbox One as an online-only console. However, at E3 in June they came out swinging and delivered one of their best E3 press conferences to date.

This fall, they delivered some amazing games exclusively for Xbox owners such as Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection. But now it's time to put 2014 to rest as we look at the Xbox One's most anticipated games of 2015.
