Microsoft has a special deal they have planned for Xbox Live where more than 70 games across the Xbox 360 and Xbox One will be available at discounted rates between 40% and 50% off. The games span everything from party games and platformers to puzzle titles and action shooters.
As part of Microsoft's new backwards compatibility initiative, the company teamed up with Bethesda Softworks to allow Fallout 3 for the Xbox 360 to be playable on the Xbox One when the feature goes live this fall.
Destiny players are in for a surprise next week. The development team is planning something special for Bungie Day on July 7th.
Destiny's script could have been very different. Bungie brought in two comedians to provide some jokes for the game but decided not to use any of them.
Part 2 of GTA 5's Ill-Gotten Gains Update will be arriving after the Fourth of July weekend. This update will bring a bunch of new multiplayer gear for players to purchase with their heist profits.
Bungie and Activision are listening. That's the gist of their latest update over on the official Bungie website, where they addressed fan frustration with having to re-buy Destiny just to get a few new trinkets that were made exclusive in the Taken King Collector's Edtion.
Destiny has had a pretty turbulent first year on the market, specifically in the area of its downloadable content and the price tag attached to it. Up to this point, Iíve done my best to give the teams at Bungie and Activision the benefit of the doubt that decisions were not being driven solely by the desire to make a quick buck. With this latest DLC fiasco, though, I find myself firmly planted in the opposite corner.
Microsoft is expanding Xbox Live's Games with Gold program. Starting this month, they'll be giving Xbox One owners two new games per month instead of one.†
Activision, Bungie and Red Bull have teamed up together for a brand new quest for the first-person shooter Destiny. The quest will open the door for gamers to earn extra XP and rewards by purchasing specially marked Red Bull energy drinks and retrieving the code from the can.
For those of you who are wondering what type of timed release deal Activision and Sony have worked out for Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC, it looks like you can expect the exact same set-up the publisher had with Microsoft in the past, only now resulting in earlier launches on the PlayStation platform.
I've been following emulation for many years and tried keeping up with certain emulators to see how they progressed, so I was colored with surprise when Phil Spencer, the head of the Xbox division, started dropping knowledge-bombs about the technical side of emulation and how Microsoft managed to get the Xbox One to properly emulate the Xbox 360.
According to some of the folk at Sony Computer Entertainment, they were blindsided and surprised that Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would be backwards compatible with the Xbox 360. It wasn't just sony that was surprised by the news, though. Gamers were quite taken aback by the news as well.
One of Microsoft's biggest announcements at E3 2015 was backwards compatibility for Xbox One. Xbox One owners will be able to play Xbox 360 games on their new console when the feature publicly launches in Fall 2015.
If you thought that the backwards compatibility feature coming to the Xbox One was a really cool thing, you'll likely be equally impressed to know that Windows 10 can stream Xbox 360 games running on the Xbox One.
