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.

Toxic Overwatch Xbox One Players Will Have Voice Chat Disabled

Tyler Lee September 20, 2017

Toxic behavior from players when it comes to multiplayer games aren’t new and to be honest it is to be expected. However companies like Blizzard have been trying out various ways to deal with such players, whether it be taking tougher stances and reporting features, and it looks like they might have come up with another solution: muting these players.

In the game’s latest patch that was released recently, it seems that Overwatch players on the Xbox One will no longer have to listen to other toxic players. This is because the patch will now disable voice chat for players who have been marked as “Avoid Me” on Xbox Live. This means that these players will not be able to voice chat with other players, which could potentially reduce some of the abuse.

According to Blizzard, “Players whose Xbox Live reputation has been downgraded to ‘Avoid Me’ will remain in the same matchmaking pool as other Overwatch players. However, they will no longer be able to use the in-game voice communication.” Prior to this, gamers who had the “Avoid Me” reputation could still use voice chat, but were put into their own matchmaking pool which resulted in higher matchmaking times.

With this change, these players will now be back in the same matchmaking pool as the rest, just that they’ll be muted when it comes to voice chat. Whether or not this will improve the game remains to be seen, but it is clear that Blizzard is annoyed by having to deal with toxic behavior as they have previously said that this ultimately slows down updates that they can make to the game.

Monster Hunter: World Set For January 26, 2018 Release

Tyler Lee September 19, 2017

Announced at E3 2017 a few months ago, Capcom has recently confirmed that the upcoming Monster Hunter: World will be released on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles on the 26th of January 2018. Just like the previous announcement, the release on consoles will be taking place first and the release for the PC will be at a later date which has yet to be specified.

In addition to the release date, Capcom also confirmed that there will be a Digital Deluxe Edition and a physical Collector’s Edition for the North American market. The Digital Deluxe Edition is priced at $70 and “includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter.”

As for the Collector’s Edition, it will retail for $150 and “includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the additional customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition (a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter), a 32 page hardcover art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code all bundled in a custom collector’s box.”

As for Japan, it seems that Sony will also be releasing a Monster Hunter: World-themed PS4 Pro model. Until then gamers can also check out the new trailer that was released for the game in the video above.

Forza Motorsport 7 On Xbox One Weighs Almost 100GB Without 4K Assets

Adnan Farooqui September 18, 2017


If you’ve been meaning to get your hands on Forza Motorsport 7, you might want to start thinking about clearing up some space on your Xbox One. The Forza team has revealed recently that the title is going to weigh in at nearly 100GB on the Xbox One. The interesting detail here is that this is what the game will weigh in without its 4K assets. One can only imagine where the final number will end up.

The Forza team has confirmed that the on-disc portion of Forza Motorsport 7 will be 45GB. However, a day-one patch will be released on the day the game goes live. This day-one patch is going to be 50GB. This takes the final number up to 95GB.

It’s not going to be a mandatory install, though. Players will be able to play Forza Motorsport 7 from the disc alone. However, the team says that to “experience the true depth and breadth of content in Forza Motorsport 7,” it would be best for players to download the day-one update.

Forza Motorsport 7 is going to be released for the Xbox One come September 29th. The game weighs in at nearly 100GB without the 4K assets. They will land in November when the Xbox One X is released. Only then we’ll find out what the final weight of Forza Motorsport 7 is going to be.

Xbox One And PS4 Crossplay Live In Epic’s Fortnite

Adnan Farooqui September 18, 2017


Microsoft announced support for Xbox One crossplay at the E3 gaming convention last year. Sony hasn’t really been open to the idea so Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners aren’t able to play each other online. It appears to be a different story for Epic’s co-op survival game Fortnite. The title has been updated quietly to enable Xbox One and PS4 players to crossplay.

Sony hasn’t really been receptive to the crossplay idea even Microsoft started talking about it last year. It decided against enabling crossplay for both Minecraft and Rocket League even though Microsoft and Nintendo are supporting it across PC, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.

There’s no clarity about this right now. Neither Microsoft nor Sony have confirmed that they’re supporting this. It’s quite possible that this might have been the result of a temporary glitch.

Reddit users have spotted that it’s possible for Fortnite players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to play against each other online. However, there’s no statement as yet from Sony or even Epic Games for that matter to confirm that crossplay has been enabled officially.

Hopefully, there will be more clarity about this in the near future. Gamers would certainly want to know if this can be expected from additional titles down the line.

Xbox One Game DVR Gets 1080p HD Support Soon

Adnan Farooqui September 14, 2017


The original Xbox One enables gamers to record their gameplay in 720p resolution at 30 frames-per-second. That’s good enough but it’s not great. Compare this to the Xbox One X which will have support for 4K gameplay recording from day one and you can imagine just how owners of the standard console will feel. Microsoft is offering them an olive’s branch by confirming that their console will soon be able to record gameplay in full 1080p HD.

Microsoft recently discontinued the original Xbox One that was released back in 2013. It’s only selling the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X now. There are still countless people out there that own the original console so keeping them happy is important for the company.

Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One Game DVR will get support for 1080p gameplay recording soon. Moreover, console owners will also be able to save their recordings to an external hard drive. This will prove valuable in saving internal storage on the console.

The company’s Mike Ybarra confirmed on Twitter that Xbox One owners will be able to record gameplay in 1080p HD for up to an hour.

This feature has only been rolled out to Alpha Insiders at this point in time, this means that only those who are in the upper echelons of the Xbox Insiders program can test it right now.

Microsoft is likely going to release the feature for all Xbox One owners in the coming months.

Injustice 2 Could Be Coming To The PC According To Retail Listings

Tyler Lee September 12, 2017

Injustice 2 by NetherRealm Studios was released earlier this year in May where it was made available on both the Xbox One and the PS4. However there has not been any mention of a PC release, which is a bit strange given that the game’s prequel was launched for the PC, but the good news for PC gamers is that the game could be arriving for the PC soon.

This is according to retail listings for the game on websites such as Game Mania and Amazon France (via Wccftech). In fact the listing on Amazon France seems to suggest that the PC version of the game could be launched as a deluxe edition, whatever that means, although we’re guessing it will probably be bundled with all the DLCs that have been released to date.

Unfortunately the listings do not mention when the game will be available for the PC, so whether gamers have to wait a few weeks, a few months, or even wait until 2018 remains to be seen. Note that neither the game’s developer nor its publisher Warner Bros. has confirmed that a PC launch is in the works, so take it with a grain of salt for now because for all we know, both these retailers could simply be making educated guesses, but either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information.

Microsoft Unveils Custom Xbox One S With The Chainsmokers

Tyler Lee September 11, 2017

Customized consoles aren’t a new thing, and we have seen how companies have created themed consoles that are sold as bundles with certain games, however it seems that Microsoft will be taking customized consoles to the next level by creating custom consoles together with celebrities.

The company has recently taken the wraps off a customized Xbox One S which was created for the DJ duo The Chainsmokers (who are probably most well-known for their song “Closer”). This particular Xbox One S can light up, thanks to a microprocessor that is built into the console that can convert sound into a dynamic light show.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the group was quoted as saying, “We were really pumped to work with Xbox on this project and help bring our music to life in a new way, by combining it with the best gaming console in the world. We knew the team would do something amazing, but when we saw the custom Xbox One S for the first time, we were both blown away by how cool the design is.”

We have to admit that it is a bit of a tease since regular gamers probably won’t be able to get their hands on these customized consoles, but The Chainsmokers will be holding a giveaway contest from now until the 17th of September where one very lucky fan/gamer can win this particular customized Xbox One S.

Xbox One Keyboard And Mouse Support Coming Soon

Tyler Lee September 4, 2017

One of the main differences between how console gamers play and how PC gamers play is through their input devices, in which PC gamers mostly rely on the keyboard and mouse, while console gamers use a gamepad. However a few years ago, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would be getting keyboard and mouse support soon, but that has yet to materialize today.

The good news is that according to a report from Windows Central, it seems that Microsoft’s Xbox Platform CVP Mike Ybarra reiterated that support for keyboard and mouse is coming soon, although when exactly that will be happening remains to be seen, but we guess the reassurance from Ybarra means that Microsoft has not forgotten nor scrapped the idea.

Speaking at a panel during PAX West, Ybarra was quoted as saying, “Keyboard and mouse support is definitely coming. We have to be very smart in how we do that. We’ll leave it a lot up to developer choice. A lot of people tweet me and say “you can’t do this because of fairness,” and we understand that. We run two platforms; the Xbox platform, and the Windows platform.”

Like we said there is still no firm date on when the support will be coming, but it will definitely change the way games are played on consoles, although not necessarily in a good way. For example Blizzard did not seem too thrilled with the idea, and while they did not say why, it’s not that hard to imagine that this will create some imbalance between gamers who use keyboard + mouse and those who don’t.

Microsoft No Longer Selling Original Xbox One

Adnan Farooqui August 27, 2017


If you’ve always wanted to purchase the original Xbox One that Microsoft launched back in 2013, you’re out of luck. The company is no longer selling the original console in the United States. It’s only selling the retail versions of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S via its online store.

Customers who really want one can pick up a refurbished model of the original Xbox One for $199. The original Xbox One has actually disappeared from the company’s online store in the United States without a trace.

The company didn’t really make a big fuss about the fact that it’s no longer selling the original console. On the other hand, the console remains listed on Microsoft’s UK online store, but mentions that the SKU is “sold out.”

It’s highly unlikely that units will be restocked. Customers who really want to purchase an original Xbox One can try checking with the company’s retail partners to see if they have any stock remaining because Microsoft seems to be done with it for good.

Microsoft is now focusing its energies on the Xbox One X, the most powerful console it has ever built. The company opened pre-orders for the console last week and later said that it was the “fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever.” The company didn’t provide any concrete numbers to back that statement up with, though.
