    The latest Xbox One firmware update comes with quite the bevy of features.

Keep in mind that your picture should adhere to the Code of Conduct since all users will be able to see it.

    The July update also allows Mixer users to co-stream, which means that up to four players on their...

    Bald Bouncer
    Brand new footage for the upcoming Xbox One and Windows 10 game Crackdown 3 was released today. It’s 10 minutes of free roaming gameplay, meaning we get to see the style of free form action that made the games cult classics to begin with, and we also get to see some brand new abilities, as well as the Black Hole Gun.

    That’s not all, either- the footage is running on the Xbox One X, so we get to see what is likely to be the system’s showcase launch...

    Microsoft has announced that four Halo titles – namely Halo: CE Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo 4 – will support backwards compatibility on the Xbox One later this year. Furthermore, all the map DLC will be free.

    Along with the campaign and multiplayer, LAN play will be supported, especially when playing between Xbox One and Xbox 360. Whether it’s a digital copy of the game or the original disc, you can start playing immediately.

    We’ve heard so much about how powerful the Xbox One X is- but ultimately, the best demonstration of that is seeing it in action for ourselves, and understanding how it is working behind the scenes, if we cant. Most gamers can’t, of course- but the fine folks at Digital Foundry can, and they posted a lengthy video explaining how games perform on the Xbox One X versus the existing Xbox One S.

    According to the analysis, Forza 7 uses up 77.8% of the GPU power in the original Xbox...

  • Crackdown 3 seems to be an average (or possibly below average) looking game
    Bald Bouncer
    It’s going to feel a bit comfortable for many Crackdown veterans excited to get back into the improved world that is Crackdown 3. With its artistic style, insanely fun weapons and explosions, and fun characters, this is definitely a game for those who’ve been wanting leave the critically panned Crackdown 2 in the shadows, and remember the glory days of the original Crackdown. But don’t get too ahead of yourself, this E3 had the gameplay set on the story mode. So all of that massive city destruction...

  • Halo 6 – 343 Industries Ensures That It Will Have Its ‘Grand Moments’ Again
    Bald Bouncer
    People were amazed at the complete and total lack of Halo at E3 this year. With Microsoft and Xbox relying so heavily on the first person shooter franchise, people expected there to be news of Halo 6 at this year’s conference. Developers 343 Industries, however, have assured fans that while we didn’t hear of where the franchise is headed in the future, we will soon enough, and that the team is working hard on whatever is next.

    “So this year’s E3 was still awesome and special...

  • Phil Spencer Teases Microsoft’s E3 Games Line-up

    For Microsoft, this E3 is important - Sony is the strongest it has ever been, and Nintendo is resurgent. This means that what was initially a single front war is now a two front one for them. So of course, they need to have something meaningful planned for E3, right?

    Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, was asked about Microsoft’s E3 plans during an interview with Xbox On, and he shared some thoughts on what to look forward to.

    ‘I think the game lineup this year across the board is fantastic,’ he said to Youtube channel Xbox On. And I think Scorpio will be the best console to go play these games on. But when I think about just the games we’ve heard about from first and third parties, it’s going to be such an incredible year… I know we say that every year, but I’ve had some opportunity to look at some of the third party games, which are coming together so well. I’m obviously playing our first party games. And I think the creativity and diversity this year is fantastic. Something like Destiny 2 is coming, I was over at Bungie two weeks ago, and I got to play a little bit, and it got me back into the first game.

    ‘But I think the games that are coming out, the new Star Wars game, Red Dead, some other stuff that’s not announced yet, the new Mordor game… I just think this year, where last year was a lot of shooter games, which I think is great, and I know Destiny is a shooter too, but there’s lots of other kinds of content too, which I think is great. It’s gonna be a great year and a great E3.’

    Now, while I agree with a lot of what he is saying, and it’s great that these wonderful games will be the best on Xbox, this answer does worry me, because it seems to almost be drawing attention away from exclusives and first party games. I hope that simply showing some (admittedly great) third party games, playing best on Scorpio, is not Microsoft’s plan for E3 and for Scorpio- that would put them in a world of trouble.
