• Xbox One Support for Original Xbox Games Still Coming

    xbox one original xbox supportWhile it may have been some time since Xbox originally announced backward compatibility for original Xbox games, it's been reiterated recently that the feature is still being worked on.

    Phil Spencer was the person to step up and speak about the progress that's currently being made for the backward compatibility feature.

    When asked about whether Xbox would make any announcements about original Xbox compatibility, Phil Spencer responded by saying "I hope to bring more on Original Xbox backward compatibility this year, yes."

    By this comment, it sounds like the feature is still in the works and it may be some time before it's finalized. There may be some blocks that could potentially slow down the project, but if we're fortunate, we may get more finalized details about an expected release date for the feature before the end of the year.

    It's already been previously confirmed that original Xbox games will run better and look nicer on the Xbox One. While games won't have texture overhauls, their frame rates will be improved thanks to the increased performance of the Xbox One over the original Xbox.

    There will be a library of games available for original Xbox compatibility, starting with Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy. The library of compatible original Xbox games won't be as extensive as the Xbox 360 compatible library, but it'll without a doubt feature some of the most popular original Xbox titles.

  • Division DLC Gets Delayed

    Division DLC Gets Delayed

    Bad news for Division fans - the previously planned DLC content for the Division has now been pushed back to a later date. The reasons for this have been explained in the article below.

    The Division has been an interesting experience for the Ubisoft development team. Whilst The Division received a huge amount of hype leading up to it's release, the interest for the game died out quickly after the majority of it's previous fanbase released the huge amount of problems with the overall game experience.

    The developer has now put their priority on improving the core gameplay experience and this will mean that all of the resources Ubisoft has available for The Division will be used on improving the main gameplay experience, and future DLC content has been delayed as a result of this.

    The Ubisoft team recently mentioned that delaying the DLC will enable them to "strengthen the core experience before adding new content, but also continuously improve it by allowing for more production time to ensure the quality of future updates as well."

    The next DLC release was planned for update 1.4 in October, but it has now been pushed back to a later date in 2016. As a result, the final DLC, 'Last Stand,' will get a release in early 2017. Update 1.4 will now be dedicated entirely on "bug fixing, game balancing and other improvements."

    Will you be willing to give The Division another chance after Ubisoft makes some much needed improvements to the core gameplay experience?
