Microsoft has released the first installment of This Week on Xbox, a new weekly video series that covers the past week's big announcements for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles, along with some extras.

The series is hosted by Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb, Microsoft's long-time Xbox Live programming head who has become the most well known face among the Xbox team to the general public. The plan is to post up a new episode every Friday with a look back at major game announcements, such as this week's reveal that Sullust will be one of the planets that will be seen in the upcoming game Star Wars Battlefront.

Hyrb will also mention the big new Xbox games released in the past week, like Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. He will also offer a quick and handy Xbox tip and there are plans to feature Xbox community members with their creations in future episodes.

While This Week on Xbox will be available on YouTube every Friday, it will also be shown on the Xbox One dashboard, and that version will include some interactive elements as well.
