Windows Central streams an Xbox One game or two on Twitch every weekend, and sometimes during the week as well. Tonight at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific) we have a very special stream in store for you guys at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch.
I'll be streaming two Xbox One games that have only been released in Japan: puzzle game Puyo Puyo Tetris and an MMORPG called Onigiri. You can totally play both of these games on any Xbox One, even if you don't live in Japan.
Update: The stream has ended. We gave out some extra cool prizes during the stream: two Titan Ones, the accessory that lets you use any USB controller with your Xbox or Playstation consoles, plus Xbox Live gift cards and more. Check out the video replays and winners after the break.
The Titan One
Console Tuner's Titan One allows gamers to play any of the four big systems ( Xbox One and 360, Playstation 3 and 4) with controllers designed for other systems. You can play Xbox One games with Playstation controllers, Playstation games with Xbox controllers, and even use PC controllers or mouse and keyboard with the console of your choice.
It's a truly amazing accessory that can make games more comfortable and easier to play. There's lots to say about the Titan One, so check out our detailed review for more info.
As a special offer for Windows Central readers, use the promo code pcd5 for five percent off your order for the Titan One from Extreme Mods!
Puyo Puyo Tetris
Puyo Puyo Tetris
Just released at retail in Japan last week, Puyo Puyo Tetris is a cross-over between Sega's Puyo Puyo series and Tetris. Puyo Puyo, also known as Puyo Pop, is a falling-block puzzle game in which players match groups of colored blobs called Puyos. You probably remember how Tetris works.
Puyo Puyo Tetris mashes up the two different puzzle games in clever ways. You'll play Puyo Puyo or Tetris mode while your opponent plays the other, engage in a mode in which both Puyo and Tetris pieces fall into the same board, another mode which swaps you back and forth between Puyo and Tetris boards at timed intervals, and much more.
With a full story mode, plus local and online multiplayer for up to four players, Sega's Puyo Puyo Tetris is currently the puzzle game to beat on Xbox One. Buy from Play-Asia and play it on any Xbox One; it's not region-locked!
- Puyo Puyo Tetris – Xbox One – $53.99 – Buy from Play-Asia
The first true MMO for Xbox One is available as a free download on the Japanese Xbox One Store.
Onigiri takes place in an ancient Japan populated by mythological characters and monsters. A race of gigantic monsters called the Kamigui once threatened the land and its people. The sun goddess managed to seal the monsters away for a time. But now one of the seals has broken and the Kamigui return to destroy the world. Only you, a young Oni (ogre) and your friends can protect the land stop the Kamigui.

We'll be streaming Puyo Puyo Tetris and Onigiri for one hour each starting at 8pm Central (9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific) tonight. During that time, we'll be giving out a total of seven excellent prizes. All prizes are open to international viewers, even the Titan Ones!
- 2 Titan Ones (retail value $59.95)
- 4 $10 Xbox Live gift codes
- 1 3-month Xbox Live Gold subscription
To enter, just follow me at Twitch.tv/Eastxtwitch and tune in during the stream. You can watch the stream right here in this post, but you need to actually participate in the stream chat to have a chance at winning. We'll deliver codes to the winners via Twitch message (PM) during the stream. Titan One winners must provide shipping address and contact info, with actual delivery handled by Console Tuner.
What's the best way to experience Twitch? If you don't have a PC, you can get the Xbox One or Xbox 360 Twitch app and watch from the comfort of your couch. Or grab the unofficial app Livegaming for Windows Phone. It has plenty of great features, including the ability to chat along with your fellow viewers. Unfortunately you'll have to add our channel to your favorites from the Twitch website, outside of the app.
I'll be available for a few minutes before and after the stream if you have any questions or just want to say hi. If you enjoy the stream, I'd love for you to tune in to future streams. For now, we'll do one every weekend, with a few non-contest streams throughout the week.
