These are the Xbox 360 games we’re most excited to replay on Xbox One

Of all the huge announcements at E3 this year, few received as much fanfare as the addition of backward compatibility on Xbox One. After years of hard work, Microsoft had finally cracked the code. Gamers will finally be able to bring their Xbox 360 libraries to the Xbox One, but there’s one important caveat: compatible games will come in waves. More →

Just as quickly as it arrived, E3 2015 has packed its bags and ditched the Los Angeles Convention Center once again, leaving in its wake enough excitement to fill up a calendar year. Microsoft held the most consistently entertaining conference I’ve ever attended, Sony tried to make all of our dreams come true and Nintendo wound up apologizing for its lineup.

Microsoft E3 2015 Recap

5 biggest announcements from Microsoft’s huge E3 event

5 biggest announcements from Microsoft’s huge E3 event

Microsoft’s Xbox One launch was nothing short of an absolute mess. Bad decisions, bad policies and bad public relations had gamers raging right from the console’s unveiling all the way up to its release. Sony’s PlayStation 4 took an early lead in the next-generation console war as a result, and the Xbox One hasn’t been able to make up the ground it lost in those early days.

Many of the Xbox One’s wrongs have been righted at this point. In fact, some of Microsoft’s biggest mistakes were corrected even before the console debuted. And now, Microsoft used E3 2015 to set to stage for the next phase in what could be a comeback for the ages for the Xbox One.

Here are the five most important things the company announced on Monday morning. More →

E3 2015 Microsoft Vs. Sony

Two years after its epic E3 blunders, Microsoft is suddenly stomping all over Sony

Two years after its epic E3 blunders, Microsoft is suddenly stomping all over Sony

Two years ago, Microsoft started hyping up the Xbox One at E3 with what might have been the most disastrous sales pitch for any gaming console ever. In case you don’t remember, Microsoft introduced a bunch of new restrictions for the Xbox One that didn’t exist with the Xbox 360 — such as a requirement to log onto the web once a day to play games and restrictions on selling used games — without giving any sort of coherent explanation for why those new rules had to be in place. The backlash was so fierce that Microsoft spent the next several months reversing its decisions and scrambling furiously to get back in gamers’ good graces. More →
