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

Xbox Scorpio Will Be Marketed With 4K As A Key Pillar, Says AnalystWith the Xbox Scorpio, Microsoft is apparently responding to the fact that the PS4 is the most powerful system this generation, routinely capable of achieving higher resolutions on mot games natively than the Xbox One can. And so, the Xbox Scorpio has been created- the most powerful console ever, and capable of achieving 4K resolutions natively, at least if Microsoft’s statements about the system so far are to be believed.
And according to Michael Goodman, an analyst at Strategy Analytics, that last point in particular will be something that Microsoft drums up as it readies to market the Scorpio. “Can you really tell the difference between playing games in upscaled versus native 4K?” Goodman said to We Write Things. “Again, it’s one of those aspects that’s really going to be a marketing tool. Microsoft will be able to say, ‘yeah, we’re doing native 4K,’ just like Sony can now say that they have the most powerful system. However, when push comes to shove, it is hard to tell the difference between native and upscaled 4K.”
He also mentioned how Sony might approach marketing the PS4, what with it no longer being the most powerful system on the market. “Interestingly enough, for the first time, Sony is on the other end of that conversation” he said. “They’ll need to take a page out of Microsoft’s playbook- how do you market a less powerful console?”
I honestly expect that Sony will not have much problems marketing the PS4 even after the Scorpio is out. The massive install base it has gives it inertia and momentum, not to mention the massive library, especially of exclusive games, that the PS4 already has over the Xbox One. Scorpio should be able to do fine for itself- but I legitimately don’t see ti being much of a threat for Sony at all.
