Xbox One Backward Compatibility List Gets Four New Titles

Adnan Farooqui July 18, 2017


The backward compatibility feature of the Xbox One enables console owners to play games originally released for the Xbox 360 on the current-generation console. Microsoft continues to expand the Xbox One backward compatibility list so that there’s even more choice of Xbox 360 games for Xbox One owners. Four new additions have been made to the list today. They take the total number of backward compatible games for Xbox One to 399.

Costume Quest 2 is one of the games that has been added to the list today. Players can trick, treat, and pick a fight with villainous dental soldiers in Costume Quest 2. This RPG adventure offers new features and gameplay improvements on the Xbox One.

Next up is Frontlines: Fuel of War. It’s a military-themed infantry open-world FPS title. The game pits two massive military alliances against each other in the battle for supremacy. Quantum Conundrum and Virtua Fighter 2 are two of the other titles that have been added to the list today.

The backward compatible games list for Xbox One now stands at 399, just one short of the 400 milestone. It’s set to increase significantly in the months to come as Microsoft has said that it’s even going to add games that were made for the original Xbox console.

All of the titles mentioned above can now be purchased via the Xbox Store.

Kingdom Hearts 3 For The Switch Not Being Considered Yet

Tyler Lee July 16, 2017

Gamers are probably pretty psyched that Kingdom Hearts 3 was announced earlier this year, and with a new trailer debuting that shows off the Toy Story world, things are definitely getting pretty exciting. The game is currently scheduled to be released on the PS4 and Xbox One come 2018, but what about other platforms like the Nintendo Switch?

Unfortunately for Switch gamers hoping to get their hands on the game, you might be in for a wait, or you might not even see it at all. Speaking to IGN at the D23 conference, Kingdom Hearts 3’s director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that they aren’t even considering bringing the game onto the Switch, at least not until the version for the PS4 and Xbox One has been released.

According to Nomura, “The Nintendo Switch is definitely a very interesting piece of hardware, but if we lightly say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll be on the Nintendo Switch,’ I’m sure people will come back and say, ‘But what about the PS4 and Xbox One? We want them out first. Don’t focus on other platforms.’ So for now, we want to focus on what platforms we’ve already announced we’re going to be releasing Kingdom Hearts 3 on. And so after, perhaps, maybe we can start thinking about other possibilities.”

While Nomura isn’t closing the door on the possibility of it launching on the Switch, it seems that like Switch gamers will have to wait without any confirmation that the game will eventually be launched for the console.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Xbox One X Support Confirmed

Adnan Farooqui July 16, 2017


The list of titles that are confirmed to have full support for the Xbox One X continues to grow. Bethesda announced the newest addition to its Wolfenstein franchise at the E3 2017 gaming convention last month. Titled Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, the game follows an alternate timeline in which the Nazis have won World War 2. It has now been confirmed that the new game is going to have full support for the Xbox One X’s advanced performance.

Bethesda has promised updates for several of its games. Titles like Fallout 4, DOOM, and Dishonored 2 will all receive updates to allow them to take full advantage of the Xbox One X.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus takes the story forward following the events of the first title called The New Order which was released by Bethesda back in 2014.

The game’s dedicated page on the official Xbox website reveals that Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is going to receive some dedicated updates for the company’s most powerful console ever.

The game is going to take full advantage of the Xbox One X’s advanced graphics performance and will have support for High Dynamic Range and true 4K resolution. It’s going to offer a considerably better graphics experience compared to the conventional Xbox One version of the game.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is due for release on October 27th, 2017.

Xbox One Game Gifting Will Be Possible Soon

Adnan Farooqui July 9, 2017


Have you ever felt the need to gift your friend an Xbox game? There’s two ways that you can do that currently. You can buy a physical disc and give them that or you can send them a gift card which they can use to purchase a game of their choice. Microsoft has now confirmed that it will soon add an Xbox One game gifting feature which will enable users to gift digital copies of games to their friends.

This was confirmed by Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Xbox Mike Ybarra on Twitter. A fan had asked whether the Xbox One game gifting feature will be offered anytime soon. Ybarra replied that the feature is “not far!.”

The feature will make the process of gifting games much easier. Xbox owners will be able to gift digital copies of games to their friends and family. It will take the aggravation of having to go out and buy the disc or waiting for the package to arrive.

Microsoft would certainly be breaking new ground with this feature as it’s not possible to gift games digitally on the PlayStation 4 or Nintendo Switch either. It goes without saying that Xbox owners will certainly appreciate this feature.

Microsoft is yet to confirm precisely when this feature is going to be rolled out for the Xbox One.

Not far!

Indie Title ‘Cuphead’ Confirmed To Be Xbox One Exclusive

Tyler Lee July 5, 2017

For those who have been following the indie game scene, you might have heard of a game called “Cuphead” which was announced several years ago. In case you haven’t, you can check out the trailer for the game above which features hand drawn graphics in a style reminiscent of cartoons from back in the day.

The game, which is being developed by Studio MDHR, was previously announced for the Xbox One and PC with no mention of the PS4. This led to some wondering if it could be an exclusive, or if perhaps there could be a chance of the game finding its way onto the PS4 later. Unfortunately that will not be the case.

In a post on the NeoGAF forums, the developers have confirmed the Xbox One exclusivity. “Yes, this Cuphead game is exclusive to Xbox and PC (with Steam and Win10 versions at launch and a GoG release likely shortly after). There will likely be a Mac version down the road and possibly a Linux version beyond that (unless we lose our houses or whatever).”

It is rather unfortunate given that the game looks incredible, which means that PS4 gamers will be missing out unless they don’t mind purchasing and downloading the game for their PCs. It also pretty much rules out any possibility of it arriving on the Nintendo Switch. That being said, Cuphead is currently set for a release on the 29th of September.

Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Won’t Give Up On The Japanese Market

The Xbox One has been doing pretty well for itself around the world, but yet when it launched in Japan, it almost felt like a flop. However it seems that despite the somewhat chilly reception to the Xbox One in the country, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has stated that he doesn’t plan on giving up on the Japanese market.

In a recent interview with Weekly Famitsu, Spencer acknowledged that Japan was not the biggest market for the Xbox, but at the same time he recognizes it as being a very important market nonetheless. He cites the country’s very passionate gaming community, and stated that he will never give up on Japan.

Last year Spencer suggested that the reason for the console not doing so well in the Japanese market is because a lot of the games on the Xbox One aren’t games that the Japanese public might be into. However it seems that Microsoft has been trying because some JRPGs have since been launched for the Xbox One platform, such as Valkyria Revolution, and with Bandai Namco’s Code Vein expected to launch next year.

Whether or not these titles will be enough to appeal to Japanese gamers remains to be seen, but in the meantime it seems that even newcomers such as the Nintendo Switch appear to be doing quite well in Japan.

The Xbox One X Will Be ‘Smarter’ When Downloading 4K Assets

Tyler Lee June 27, 2017

Xbox One X Console Controller Front Tilt Top

The Xbox One X that was unveiled at E3 2017 earlier this month is Microsoft’s latest Xbox One console. Unlike the Xbox One S which can play games at 4K (it upscales from 1080p), the Xbox One X is supposed to deliver “true” 4K gaming. So this begs the question of game file sizes and how the console manages them.

The good news is that Microsoft has taken this into consideration and according to a report from Stevivor, they have included a feature in the console that will make it “smarter” when it comes to downloading 4K assets. “In addition to 4K specific assets, developers have options when it comes to language specific assets as well, which depending on the title, can drastically reduce the install footprint.”

This won’t be an Xbox One X exclusive as Microsoft confirmed that it will also be available on all Xbox One devices. In a way this is similar to what companies like Apple are doing for mobile apps, where apps will only install the required files specific to a device, versus installing everything, like why would an iPhone 7 Plus need files related to the iPhone 5?

A Microsoft rep confirmed to the publication in a statement which reads, “With the launch of Xbox One X, when it comes to game content our intention is to download the correct assets to the correct console. This means, regardless of the TV you are playing on, 4K assets will be downloaded to Xbox One X (if available) and the standard 1080p assets will be downloaded to an Xbox One S.”

The Xbox One X is currently set for a release on the 7th of November later this year.
