Though it’s still less than three months away, Microsoft has been teasing its E3 2017 plans for some time now. We know that Project Scorpio will be a major part of the presentation but it seems the company wants to give more time for its games as well.
This is according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer on Twitter who noted that, “I want to give our games more time on stage at E3. I sometimes feel like we rush telling the story of our games at E3.”
This could be in reference...

Microsoft has announced three new games being added to its list of Xbox 360 backward compatible games running on Xbox One. They’re three AAA Xbox 360 games, and while they’re not ever going to be topping any lists, they’re all reasonably cool games that more people should play and try out.
The games in question are Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Darksiders, and Darksiders 2. Now to be fair, we already knew about the former two- they had been announced as Games With Gold games...25-03-2017, 01:47 PM
April will probably be the very best month that Microsoft’s Games With Gold service has had yet- the games for this month will include four rather good titles, across Xbox 360 and Xbox One both- which means that subscribers will be getting some real bang for their buck here.
Over on the Xbox One, the two headlining titles include Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2, and Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome. While the latter particularly was panned upon release, it is the kind of game...23-03-2017, 05:01 PM
The newest batch of Xbox 360 backward compatible games on the Xbox One has been revealed - it’s a relatively lower profile bunch of games this time around, with the headlining game being Daytona USA. Of course, ardent fans of the classic arcade racer will tell you that Daytona USA is better than just about any other major AAA title Microsoft could have put up on the store- honestly, they’d probably be right, too.
The other two games that are included as part of this update are...23-03-2017, 04:30 PM
Ranked competitive multiplayer is still missing from Microsoft’s Halo Wars 2 but new content is still coming for the action RTS. A new leader is currently available via DLC – Lt. Colonel Morgan “Inferno” Kinsano. The add-on costs £4.79 and comes with the Season Pass.
Having first fought for the Insurrection and then the Covenant, Kinsano is now waging war against the Banished on the Spirit of Fire. She’s an interesting personality, willing to burn down the entire Ark before...21-03-2017, 04:48 PM
If you don’t own a PlayStation, and can’t play Persona on April 4, you’ll still have something to occupy you- Capcom has announced that Dead Rising: Frank Rising, the newest DLC for last Winter’s Dead Rising 4 which sees Frank West himself become a zombie, will be available on that date. You can purchase it for $9.99 USD, or get it as part of the Season Pass.
However, if absurdity in your Dead Rising games is what you want, Capcom is more than happy to oblige- Frank West will...21-03-2017, 04:29 PM

Crackdown 3 Development “Not Going Too Hot Either” – InsiderBetween Microsoft cancelling Platinum Games’ Scalebound, rumours of the publisher setting difficult milestones for the studio and many pointing out the number of titles that were just outright cancelled by the House of Xbox, things are looking rather dicey for Phil Spencer and his crew.
And apparently Crackdown 3, an Xbox One/PC title that’s seen delays and lack of information, is also floundering. Industry insider shinobi602 addressed Scalebound’s cancellation on NeoGAF, noting how, “It’s a big blow to the Xbox line up. Honestly there’s a serious lack of single player story driven games. Well, exclusive ones at least.
“Everything is literally MP focused. Forza 7, State of Decay, Sea of Thieves, Crackdown…(and I’ve heard Crackdown isn’t going too hot either, though nothing as bad as this).”
While this doesn’t mean Crackdown 3 is being cancelled – and despite shinobi602’s reliability as an insider, it’s important to take everything with a grain of salt – the state of exclusives under Spencer’s leadership is certainly concerning.
This is especially so when the insider noted that, “Their major first party IP are on a decline with Halo doing less than before and Gears 4 not selling that well at all relatively speaking (not good enough to sustain a huge studio with that many workers and budget).”
What are your thoughts on the whole boondoggle with Scalebound and Microsoft as a whole? Let us know in the comments.
