Go Vote for Your Backwards Compatible Games

Microsoft announced that they are offering a sort of backwards compatibility with the Xbox One in the near future that will allow it to play Xbox 360 games. The thing is, not all games will be supported as there are some logistics that have to be addressed. I stated before that some bargain titles won't likely be available, and Xbox has opened the polls to allow you to vote for games that they should make compatible with the Xbox One. Speak up and be heard so you can play more for less!

Xbox One Backward Compatibility is here. Now you can play a growing number of your Xbox 360 games on Xbox One at no additional cost. With new games added to the roster every month, now you can play both generations of games on one console. Experience the greatest games lineup in Xbox history - exclusively on Xbox One. We can’t promise every title will be available, but we’re working hard to make as many of your favorite Xbox 360 titles playable on Xbox One.

Halo 5 Guaridans - Everything There is to Know

On Monday at E3, Microsoft gave us a first real look at Halo 5: Guardians and already there is a Wiki with all of the details from the upcoming destined-to-be blockbuster. It looks pretty awesome and this game - as well as backwards compatibility - could be the thing that makes me upgrade my console to an Xbox One.

 

Xbox One "Backward Compatible" with 360

It appears that Microsoft has been hard at work making a proper emulator for the Xbox One. They are planning on offering "over 100 (360) titles" that will play on your Xbox One by the holidays later this year. More will be on the way, but don't expect some of the obscure bargain big games to play on your new Xbox One. The emulator process requires developers to join the program as the games won't be ran off the disk - they will be downloaded - if you have a valid phyical copy of the game. There are more details and some intricate things to work out yet, but this feature just helped Microsoft win the console war.

There are currently more than 1,000 Xbox 360 games available, so it’s possible if Microsoft sticks to its "hundreds" plan that the company will cover most popular titles. Games won’t show up automatically though, and publishers have to agree to having titles listed and emulated. "We have to do packaging and validation work on each title to make it available through Xbox One backward compatibility," explains a Microsoft spokesperson.

E3 - Mass Effect: Andromeda Coming

There was a lot of E3 news today and I wasn't able to catch much of it today, but one of the highlights of E3 could be the new Mass Effect: Andromeda game. The biggest downside is that it is scheduled for the holiday season - of 2016.

When we wrapped up the original Mass Effect trilogy with Mass Effect 3: Citadel in early 2013, planning and design on Mass Effect: Andromeda was already well underway. We knew we wanted to start with a foundation composed of the best parts of any Mass Effect game: exciting new worlds to discover, great characters, and intense action. At the same time, we clearly wanted to expand the definition of what you should expect from a Mass Effect game.

Razer Buys OUYA

OUYA never really delivered on the hype that they generated prior to launch and have been plagued with expensive titles and a few other issues that never really made it take off. In the end, the hardware was brilliantly designed but lacked the community and good quality games to make it really successful. Razer sees some potential in this company though and reports are surfacing that they have just bought OUYA for an undisclosed amount of cash. My guess it was pretty cheap.

The news comes a week after the first rumors that corporate wedding bells were in the air, which was met with a non-denial from the high-end gaming company. There's no word on the specifics of the deal, but like an angry relative, we've sent Facebook messages to representatives of both companies in the hope of getting a picture of the ring.

MarI/O - Machine Learning for Games

Seth Bling has written a program that allows a computer to learn how to play a game flawlessly. They showcase it off in the Mario Bros game and it's ridiculously impressive on how well it plays the game - when it wasn't given any other instruction and the program had to in fact learn to push a button in order for it to do anything at all. Pretty awesome stuff - even if it is a little over my head at first.
