Fable Anniversary Xbox Backward Compatibility Being Worked On

Adnan Farooqui September 21, 2017


There are quite a few Xbox 360 titles that can be played on the Xbox One through the magic of backward compatibility. Microsoft has made some of the most popular Xbox 360 titles compatible with its current-gen console over the past few months. The list continues to grow. Fans of the classic Fable Anniversary have been keeping their fingers crossed and they will be delighted to know that Microsoft is working on backward compatibility for Fable Anniversary.

Other titles from this franchise are already backward compatible. Fable II and Fable III are on the list of Xbox 360 titles that can be played on the Xbox One. Fans of the franchise only have to wait for a little more to play the original title as well.

Xbox chief Phil Spencer was asked on Twitter recently if Fable Anniversary backward compatibility remains a possibility. Spencer confirmed that it will arrive, adding that “it’s being worked on now.”

What Spencer didn’t confirm is that when we can expect it to arrive. It may take a couple of months or even more. Only time will tell. So far, all fans can do is keep their fingers crossed for the backward compatible Fable Anniversary to be released sooner rather than later.

We’ll update you when there’s more information about the backward compatible Fable Anniversary for Xbox One.

Stores Expected To Have More SNES Classic Units In Stock At Launch

Tyler Lee September 21, 2017

One of the problems customers faced last year when trying to get their hands on the NES Classic is that they were constantly out of stock. This is apparently due to Nintendo struggling to keep up with demand, but that’s a problem that Nintendo plans to avoid with the SNES Classic that will be launched this year.

In fact according to a tweet by Wario64 (via US Gamer), a check on Brickseek has discovered that as far as the SNES Classic is concerned, it seems that stores appear to be carrying more stock this year compared to last year’s NES Classic on launch day. There are some stores that could have as many as 96 units available at launch, while others range from 16, 42, or 30, and so on.

Like we said this is considerably more than the NES Classic last year in which some retailers apparently only received 6 units, which might explain why the console was notoriously difficult to get ahold of. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime was also recently quoted as saying that they expect to have more units available for the SNES Classic, and that customers should avoid paying a premium from third-party websites that are reselling them.

The good news is that even if you were to miss out on getting one this year, Nintendo has confirmed that production of the console is expected to run through 2018, so you can always try your luck then. The NES Classic is also expected to make a return next year, so if you missed out last year then you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for its re-release next year.

Need for Speed Payback PC System Requirements Released

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

When it comes to racing games, EA’s Need For Speed franchise is one of the more popular titles around, and last year there were reports that suggested that a new installment in the franchise is in the works. This was revealed earlier this year at E3 2017 when Need For Speed Payback was officially announced.

The game is expected to find its way onto the Xbox One, PS4, and the PC later this year, but if you’re planning on playing the game on the PC, then you might want to check out the system requirements that was recently published by the folks at NVIDIA due to the fact that NVIDIA will be the game’s GPU partner on this release. It is also not surprising that AMD’s GPUs weren’t mentioned either, but the folks at PC Invasion have offered up some potential AMD equivalents.

Starting with the minimum requirements that will let gamers run the game at 720p at 30 FPS, which is basically the game’s “low” settings, it will require an Intel i3-6300 or AMD FX 8150 CPU or better, with 6GB of RAM, 30GB of storage, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti, GTX 1050, or an AMD 7850/78670 or better.

For gamers looking to push the game’s performance further for a 1080p at 60 FPS experience, they are required to have an Intel I5 4690K or AMD FX 8350 CPU or better, 8GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or an AMD Radeon RX 480 or 580 or better. Obviously if you have better specs than that then you should be able to run the game at even higher settings. Need For Speed Payback is currently set for a release on the 10th of November, 2017.

YouTube Gaming Sponsorships Now Open To All Creators

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

It is clear that with the launch of YouTube Gaming, the company is hoping to take on the likes of Twitch where they’re hoping that viewers will tune into their site and use their platform to watch and stream video games. Now it looks like YouTube is trying to sweeten the deal by opening up sponsorships to all of its creators.

Prior to this, YouTube was testing out sponsorships where its availability was limited to those who were chosen to be part of its beta program, but the recent announcement has indicated that YouTube will open up sponsorships to all of its YouTube Gaming creators (assuming they are eligible and meet certain requirements).

According to YouTube, “With sponsorships, fans can purchase digital goods directly from your channel and support you via monthly recurring payments of $4.99 USD (local pricing applies). Sponsors get cool insider perks, such as a custom badge for live chat that will help them stand out from the crowd and custom emoji. These badges and emoji are designed by you for your fans.”

YouTube is claiming that they have seen some successes with the sponsorship feature but it remains to be seen how well it will do now that it has been opened up to more. There have been some recent criticism about how it is harder to make money on YouTube these days, so maybe this sponsorship feature could be a new way to go about it.

Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition Spotted On Retailer’s Website

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

If there is one thing about the Street Fighter series that we’ve noticed is that Capcom seems to love creating many versions of a particular release, which can be admittedly confusing for fans or those new to the series. However it seems that this won’t be changing anytime soon because Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition has been spotted.

In a listing on ShopTo’s website (via Eurogamer), the retailer has suggested that Capcom might have an “Arcade Edition” of Street Fighter 5 in the works that is set for a release on the 16th of January, 2018. One could argue that ShopTo is simply speculating, but the date does seem to be awfully specific. The listing has since been removed which suggests that either it was made in error, or ShopTo shared something that they shouldn’t have prematurely.

At the moment it is unclear as to what the Arcade Edition entails, but it has been speculated that it will be a game-of-the-year kind of release where the game along with all of its DLCs will be released in a single bundle, as well as potential new features like an arcade mode, making it easier for gamers who don’t own the game to get right into the thick of things.

It is expected that Capcom could announce the title at the Tokyo Game Show, so do check back with us later to see if there are any additional details to be had.

This Hotel Has Gaming Rigs Inside Rooms

Adnan Farooqui September 20, 2017


We’ve all been there. Bored out of our minds in a hotel room when we’re either too tired or just not interested in going out. Wouldn’t it be great to have a gaming rig in the room that can keep us busy for hours and hours? If you dreaming of having a private gaming rig inside your own hotel room, be prepared to travel all the way to Taiwan because this hotel in Taiwan offers a proper gaming rig inside its rooms.

Taiwan’s i hotel has all of the amenities you’d expect from a good hotel. There’s a plush bed, large TV, private bathrooms but that’s not all. Rooms have two gaming PCs with DXRacer gaming chairs that are just begging to host you for a gaming session.

Don’t think you’ll get a conventional hotel business center PC that makes you want to pull your hair out. They’re proper gaming PCs powered by Asus technology, complete with 32 inch monitors.

The hotel’s main lobby even has a larger gaming zone where people can play games with a group of friends or just pop down to socialize with likeminded guests. Rooms cost $100 per night on average, so it’s not a bad deal at all.

The hotel itself is located in the Taoyuan district which is about an hour away by train from Taipei.

Blizzard’s Overwatch League Launches In January

Adnan Farooqui September 20, 2017


Blizzard has spent nearly a year developing an e-sports league for its Overwatch game and it has finally confirmed when the Overwatch league is going to be launched. The debut season is going to kick off in January next year. The season will last until June so there’s going to be plenty of action for Overwatch fans to follow up on.

The Overwatch league was first announced by Blizzard in November last year. It aims to emulate traditional pro sports leagues by launching city-based teams. Players will be offered contracts with guaranteed salaries, health insurance, and even retirement plans.

Blizzard confirmed today the final three teams that will be hopping onboard. The three teams include one in Dallas, Houston, and Philadelphia each. The Philadelphia team is owned by the same group that’s behind the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers.

The Dallas and Houston teams are operated by well-known e-sports groups Team Envy and OpTic Gaming, respectively. The total number of teams in this league is now up to 12.

Blizzard today confirmed that the Overwatch league’s debut season is going to kick off on January 10th, 2018. The season is going to last until June.

Playoffs are scheduled for July. There will be a series of pre-season exhibition matches that will start on December 6th to give teams an early start.

Toys “R” Us Will Have The SNES Classic Available At Launch

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

As you might have heard, established toy retailer Toys “R” Us has recently filed for bankruptcy, but it seems that despite the company filing for bankruptcy, operations will continue as per normal. In fact according to a report from Polygon, the company has confirmed to the publication that they will actually be selling the SNES Classic on launch day itself.

The rep was quoted as saying, “Stores will open at normal time and have limited inventory of the console, so we encourage customers to get in line before doors open on Friday morning for the chance to scoop up this hot item.” This is in line with what Toys “R” Us had previously stated, in which they expect that operations will continue to proceed as per normal for the time being.

The SNES Classic was announced earlier this year and is the successor to the NES Classic that was discontinued last year. The console is expected to sell like hotcakes and Toys “R” Us had actually confirmed back in August that they would not be taking pre-orders, so for those who want to get their hands on the console via the retailer, it will be a first-come-first-serve basis.

However despite the SNES Classic expected to be a hot ticket item, Nintendo has stated that production of the console will continue through 2018 as opposed to just 2017. Nintendo also stated that the NES Classic will be making a comeback, so hopefully there will be enough supply to meet the demand of gamers.

Netflix For The Nintendo Switch Reportedly Ready, Awaiting For Approval

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

When the Nintendo Switch was announced, the way the console was designed made it look like a pretty obvious candidate for various entertainment apps since the console could be brought with gamers on the go. However at the time of announcement, Nintendo said that apps like Netflix would come in time, suggesting that gamers could be in for a wait.

However it turns out that maybe gamers might not have to wait much longer because in a report from GoNintendo, one of their readers KamehamehaX has apparently spoken to a Netflix rep who told them that Netflix for the Switch is “locked and loaded” and that all that remains is approval by Nintendo.

It seems that Netflix has been trying to get permission from Nintendo to launch on the Switch for a while now, and that everything is ready and all Nintendo needs is to give it the greenlight and it will be good to go. We have no idea why Nintendo might be holding back their approval, but since neither Netflix nor Nintendo have officially said anything yet, take it with a grain of salt for now.

However a launch on the Switch would indeed help to draw more players onto the platform since it would show that the console could be used to do more than just play games, like Sony and Microsoft’s offerings in which users can stream music, videos, chat with friends, and more.
