What Will It Do?
Users will be able to download additional games and apps via a VCS storefront and all users will have access to basic connected features like the store and online multiplayer. There is going to be a subscription service and ability to customize the experience through Linux Sandbox, allowing owners to add more storage or add a USB to load whatever they want. It will be Bluetooth and compatible with most PC computers.
