  • Original Xbox Games Finally Available On Xbox One

    original xbox games xbox one xThe Microsoft hype train really is building up speed. The Xbox One X is set to launch next month and a number of original Xbox games are now finally available on the Xbox One.

    To begin with, a total of 13 original Xbox games have been brought to the Xbox One. All of these titles are now playable on the latest console from Microsoft.

    If you have an old physical copy of any of the games listed below, you'll be able to put in the disc and play it on your Xbox One. If you don't have a physical copy, don't worry, Microsoft is also selling digital copies of each game for $9.99.

    We have provided the full list of original Xbox games now available on the Xbox One X below:

    • Black
    • BloodRayne 2
    • Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
    • Dead to Rights
    • Ninja Gaiden Black
    • Fuzion Frenzy
    • Grabbed by the Ghoulies
    • The King of Fighters Neowave
    • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
    • Psychonauts
    • Red Faction 2
    • Sid Meier's Pirates!
    • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

    It's great to see some of these titles make their way to the Xbox One. Previously, some of these titles couldn't be played on anything but the original Xbox, which was a huge shame because this list includes a huge number of absolute classics.

    I personally can't wait to get started with Ninja Gaiden Black. What are your thoughts? Are there any games on this list that you'd like to replay? Perhaps you haven't played any of these games yet and you'd like to try some of them out for the first time?

  • Some Xbox 360 Games to Get Xbox One X Visual Upgrade Treatment

    xbox 360 games xbox one xWith the Xbox One X set to storm the world next month, Microsoft is gearing up their game library by releasing visual updates. Surprisingly, even some older Xbox 360 games available on the Xbox One X via backward compatibility are set to get the visual upgrade treatment.

    According to Xbox, a number of Xbox 360 backward compatible games will be getting an upgrade to support a higher resolution, 9X the original pixel count, and expanded color details.

    This upgrade allows to improve game visual quality without touching the game code in any way. It's called the Heutchy Method and "leverages the power of Xbox One X to let the Xbox 360 emulator present the very best version of the game possible with the existing assets--all without touching the game code."

    The number of games to get upgraded visual support is quite limited so far. The Xbox 360 games available for an Xbox One X visual upgrade are Assassin's Creed, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Halo 3.

    Halo 3 isn't the only Halo game to get visual upgrades in preparation for the Xbox One X launch. Halo: The Master Chief Collection is also getting a visual upgrade - this game collection includes all Halo games from Combat Evolved to Halo 4.

    Microsoft also has lots of plans to improve the graphical fidelity of other Halo games in the near future too.

    While we don't know whether Microsoft will release visual updates for any more Xbox 360 games, we do know that the company is planning to release many visual updates for existing Xbox One titles.

  • No Destiny 2 Halloween Event This Year

    destiny 2 halloween eventIt's been a tradition for Bungie to launch a Halloween event each year ever since Destiny first graced our consoles, but this year will be different. There will be no Destiny 2 Halloween event and the reason for this isn't really that clear.

    A Destiny fan asked David "Deej" Dague on Twitter whether there would be a Destiny 2 Halloween event and he simply responded with "No Sir." Later on, Deej expanded on his reply by saying, "We may see it again someday but Season 1 has been about launch and ritual activation. The first event for Destiny 2 is The Dawning."

    In Destiny 1, Festival of the Lost was the name of the Halloween event that would appear each year. Even though Destiny 1 also launched in September, (back in 2014) Bungie still released a Festival of the Lost event on the first year.

    It seems a shame that we won't be getting a Festival of the Lost Halloween event this year for Destiny 2, but hopefully, we will see it return next year.

    For those unaware, The Dawning is a Christmas themed event that initially launched for Destiny in December 2016. With it returning to Destiny 2, it'll mean players will have an opportunity to get involved with the festivities this Christmas, so that'll somewhat make up for the lack of a Destiny 2 Halloween event.

    Last year, The Dawning included a number of new cosmetic items, new legendary armor sets, the return of the Sparrow Racing League, The Dawning exclusive exotics, and a new Crucible playlist. Hopefully, we'll see a similarly sized content drop for Destiny 2 later this year.

  • PUBG Will Be On PS4 After Exclusivity Period

    pubg ps4 exclusivityIf you're hoping to play Playerunknown's Battlegrounds on your PS4, we have some good and bad news for you today.

    First things first, it's been confirmed that Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has set up an exclusivity deal with Microsoft. Bluehole is also interested in bringing Battlegrounds to the PS4 after this exclusivity period runs out.

    Bluehole is apparently in talks with Sony to make this happen. So far, this is the good news that has come out of a recent report that shares some insider details on the Xbox exclusivity deal.

    The bad news is that Bluehole and Microsoft have been in further talks to essentially lengthen the exclusivity deal for PUBG. This would mean that Battlegrounds would stay exclusive to the Xbox One and the PC for longer than previously planned.

    According to a report by Bloomberg, anonymous individuals, who have chosen to keep their identity private, were present during talks between Microsoft and Bluehole. There was a discussion in place in which both parties involved talked about "extending their agreement to publish the game exclusively on Xbox."

    The same individuals made claims that Bluehole was in talks with "all the major console companies," suggesting that it may not just be the PS4 and the Xbox One that Bluehole has their eyes on.

    Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has quickly become the most played game on Steam ever. Recently the game beat Free-to-play title Dota 2's world record for Steam concurrent users. Last week, Battlegrounds took their accomplishment even higher and surpassed 1.6 million concurrent users.

  • PS4 System Update 5.0 Launched

    ps4 system update 5.0A brand new system update for the PlayStation 4 has been released. PS4 owners can download and install the new 5.0 system update now.

    While moving to 5.0 sounds like quite a big jump, there aren't any significant changes in this latest system update. Unlike previous big OS updates for the PS4, the 5.0 system update puts a focus on backend fixes.

    The visual changes are very minor, but we'll discuss what has changed below.

    The biggest feature of the PS4 5.0 system update is the support for Twitch streaming up to 1080p resolution for those with a PS4 Pro. If you own a PS4 Pro, you'll be able to stream your game directly to Twitch at 60 frames per second and in 1080p resolution. You are now able to follow users in PS4's What's New feed. Previously, it was only possible to follow verified users from this feed.

    A couple of changes have also been made to the notifications system on the PS4 5.0 system update. Starting in 5.0, PS4 owners can now prevent notification pop-ups from appearing during video playback. People will now also be able to leave a party and check notifications from within the PS4 Quick Menu.

    Sony has also added reworked parental controls. PS4 owners can now create a 'family' account and have different labels for that account. Labels include parent/guardian and child. Each label can have its own set of permissions.

    What are your thoughts on this system update? It's not very exciting, but the few changes may prove useful for some PS4 owners.

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 Beta This Week

    star wars battlefront 2 betaStar Wars Battlefront 2 is having an open beta event in anticipation of the game launch next month. The beta is taking place later this week and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

    If you pre-ordered Battlefront 2, you'll be able to jump in on October 4. If you haven't pre-ordered, you'll be able to play the beta starting from October 6. The beta will be live until October 9.

    As well as revealing the beta start dates, EA has explained which maps and modes will be in the multiplayer beta for Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    There will be four game modes available in the beta. This includes Galactic Assault, Starfighter Assault, Strike, and Arcade.

    In Starfighter Assault, players will be able to play in a 24 player two-sided affair in space. In Galactic Assault, players will play a 10v10 battle mode on Naboo. Players will be able to play as both the separatist droids and the clone troopers from the prequel movies.

    Strike is a smaller class-based mode that focuses on infantry instead of vehicles and heroes. The Strike map for the beta is Takodana.

    Finally, Arcade mode is an offline option that supports split-screen play.

    Are you interested in the new Star Wars Battlefront 2? The game is set to launch on November 17. In other news, the original Star Wars Battlefront II, the one that launched in 2005, recently had its servers restored for PC players.

  • First Destiny 2 Raid Goes Live

    destiny 2 raid leviathanThe first raid for Destiny 2 has finally gone live and we've got some unique details to share about it.

    Bungie's game director, Luke Smith, has revealed that the first raid will require a power level between 260 and 280. For those that haven't had a chance to play much Destiny 2 yet, you've got some catching up to do before the raid will be accessible to you.

    Raids have always been the most challenging aspect of the Destiny game world, so it makes sense that a minimum power level cap has been set to make sure inexperienced players don't accidentally walk into a world filled with pain.

    The first raid for Destiny 2 is called Leviathan. So far, we're not sure how the raid will work, or what enemies it will consist of. We do know, however, that players that do not yet have a team of friends to join them can now use matchmaking to find existing teams to play alongside.

    Leviathan originally launched on September 13 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. We're expecting to see more raids released over the next couple of years, but for now, this first Leviathan raid will certainly keep players busy for the next few weeks.

    Destiny 2 originally launched on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 6, 2017. The game has already broken some massive records, including a 1.2 million concurrent player count. These numbers are only expected to increase when Destiny 2 gets a launch on PC on October 24.

  • NBA 2K18 Prelude Demo Available for Free

    nba 2k18 prelude demoIf you're not getting excited for NBA 2K18 yet, the new Prelude demo might get you interested.

    The Prelude demo is available for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners and will give players a chance to try out NBA 2K18 for free in anticipation of the game's impending release.

    With Prelude, players get to dip their feet in the new MyCareer mode. Players will also be given the opportunity to test out the Neighborhoods mode.

    In Neighborhoods, players are given access to an online social space where they can interact with other players, challenge others to games, and play various activities, some of which can improve their player's stats.

    Interestingly, the developers are letting players keep hold of the progress they make during the Prelude demo. If you improve your character's stats, change your character's appearance, or make any other progress, it'll stay with your account when you purchase and play the full game.

    NBA 2K18 is set to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on September 19. However, those who have preordered the game are given the opportunity to play the game four days earlier on September 15.

    Are you interested in NBA 2K18 and the new MyCareer and MyPark changes? If you're on the fence, we'd suggest giving the Prelude demo a download. It's free to download and play and will be available up until NBA 2K18 launches later this month.

  • New LawBreakers 1.3 Patch Released

    lawbreakers patch 1.3A brand new patch for LawBreakers has recently gone live on both the PS4 and the PC version of the game. For the most part, the patch has gone ahead smoothly, although there has been a temporary issue with weapon stickers that the developers are currently working to get solved.

    In the new patch, a nighttime version of the Promenade map has been added. Role limits have now been set to 2, and Kick decals can now be sprayed by players across the game environment.

    A number of balancing changes have been made to different game modes, too. For example, the Blitzball mode has been made more challenging. The Blitzball shield radius has been increased from 850 to 1000.

    The Overcharge mode has had similar changes - the radius for reducing the Battery's shield has increased from 750 to 850, and the contest radius for the Battery has increased to 1000. The contest area has also changed to a sphere as opposed to a cylinder, which should make it easier for players to hold the spot while moving.

    Uplink has had the same changes as Overcharge. Finally, the Trench map has had some adjustments. A collision area has been added to the top of the central zone above capture point B. This allows Harrier players to throw Supercharger Stations at that area.

    A large number of bug fixes have also been applied to this latest patch, as well as some overall UI fixes and small tweaks.

  • New NBA 2K18 Social Space To Change Up Multiplayer

    NBA 2K18 neighborhoodsThis year, the NBA 2K18 multiplayer mode is getting a huge overhaul. In NBA 2K18, a new social space called Neighborhoods is being added.

    In the new Neighborhoods mode, players will be able to customize their own player, interact with others, and take part in a variety of different activities, some of which are related to basketball, while some aren't.

    The Neighborhood mode will take place in a separate map that'll feature a set of American city blocks. Basketball courts, shops for customizing your character, and other recreational areas will be included.

    The new Neighborhood mode will essentially work as a lobby for players to hang out in while waiting for games in either of the MyPark, Pro-Am, and MyCareer modes.

    Players will also be able to take part in different activities to improve their player's skills to help them be better players on the basketball court. Players will share the Neighborhood with other players that are online.

    At any time, a player can interact with another player and invite them to a MyPark game. Alternatively, they can drop out and progress through the MyCareer or Pro-Am modes.

    NBA 2K18 is set to launch for the majority of platforms on September 19. The consoles that will support NBA 2K18 includes PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

    The new MyCareer mode will have more of a focus on developing your own personal storyline, as opposed to progressing through a season as an existing basketball team.
