Gears of War 1 returns and War is Holy once more.

Xbox One might play Xbox original games in the future

Microsoft is on a mission to make the Xbox One backwards compatible with many Xbox 360 games, you know, to help you with that little push to buy the Xbox One console if you’re still sitting with the Xbox 360 and a bunch of games. It’s that little cash injection you might require to pay for the new console. But it looks like it’s not about to end there. One of our local guys here ...

The Burning Question: Why are we all fanbois?

Admit it or not, but generally most of us have a tendency to lean towards a specific gaming platform. When it’s not PC versus console debates it’s one console brand versus another console brand. It’s nothing new. This is something that’s been with us since the early 90’s. The question is why? Being a fanboi of a specific format and defending it is actually quite pathe...

An additional 43 games have been added to the Xbox One backwards compatibility list

One of the biggest surprises to come out of E3 2015 was definitely Microsoft’s announcement that they would be introducing backwards compatibility for the Xbox One, giving you a chance to go back and play your favourite games from last-gen on your shiny new console. Although the feature will only be launched in November, Microsoft has already listed quite a decent selection of games that wil...

Sony buys third-party exclusives, says Phil Spencer

If you’re a little new to gaming then you would have missed out on an era where the PS1 and PS2 had quite a bit of exclusive third-party support. When securing exclusive third-party support you’re making your console something that’s a ‘must-own’ item. Phil Spencer had a chat to Gamespot and  told them that Sony is not securing third-party exclusives because of market...

Zombi(U) sinks its teeth into PC, PS4 and Xbox One August 2015

Earlier this year in June we reported that ZombiU might be heading to current generation systems. As luck would have it that rumour was not a rotten corpse, but was something that had some substance. Today we can confirm that it will be able for download, via the various online stores, on PS4, PC and Xbox One on 18 August. If you missed the game on the Wii U, which is highly likely, then you’...

Another track and 40 cars added to Forza 6

Forza Motorsport 6 is now 7 weeks away from launching and suddenly we’re seeing an influx in the number of cars and tracks that will be available when the game launches. Last week we had 40 cars added to the roster and recently developers, Turn 10 Studios, announced another 40 cars and an additional track. The new track that joins Rio de Janeiro, Daytona International Speedway, Watkins Glen ...

Xbox One to get keyboard and mouse support?

It’s been on the cards since the Dreamcast featured keyboard and mouse support back in the late 90’s. Why one earth there’s been no keyboard and mouse support for consoles, for those who prefer it, is still as bizarre as the concept of the Kinect being a better alternative. Well, Phil Spencer took to Twitter last night to answer a bunch of questions in regards to Gamescom, but th...

Review: F1 2015 (Xbox One)

And it's a red flag to start off the new generation

Hololens will initially not be about games says Microsoft CEO

If you were thinking that Hololens was going to be the next best thing in gaming then the Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, has got news for you. He says that it’s “going to be more about developers and enterprise scenarios” than gaming when it launches. He elaborated: [quote]Gaming will always be a scenario and there will be other entertainment broadly. But with the [version one] of...
