Xbox One vs PS4

Microsoft says the Xbox One is ‘doing things that can’t be done’ on the PS4

Microsoft says the Xbox One is ‘doing things that can’t be done’ on the PS4

As we’ve discussed countless times over the course of this console generation, the PlayStation 4 is the clear winner in terms of international sales. Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s stumbles and appealed to a larger audience than it ever had it the past. At last count, Sony had sold over 25 million units… but Microsoft still hasn’t grown concerned. More →

Xbox One: How to transfer your old Xbox 360 save files to the new console

If there’s one way the Xbox One is much better than the PlayStation 4 – at least right now – it’s that Microsoft announced backwards compatibility for previous-generation games. That means more Xbox 360 games will be playable on the Xbox One in the future, which should convince some longtime Xbox 360 gamers to upgrade. But that also means that moving from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One will involve one crucial step: backing up your old saved games to move them to the new console. More →

Rare Replay review: The future of old school gaming

When I was young, I didn’t pay attention to the names of the developers on the boxes of my favorite games. I just loved playing good games. It would be years before I took an interest in the industry as a whole, but looking back, nearly every game I played in my formative years had the same name on the box: Rare. More →

Xbox One vs PS4 Gamescom 2015

3 huge ways the Xbox One just showed up the PS4

3 huge ways the Xbox One just showed up the PS4

When Microsoft announced backward compatibility for the Xbox One at E3 2015, I began to see the first signs of the tide shifting in Microsoft’s favor. After flubbing the reveal of its new-gen console, Microsoft has been doing everything in its power to restore the faith of its fans, from bringing in Phil Spencer as Xbox head to launching an endless stream of affordable bundles.

Still, the sales haven’t quite caught up with the PlayStation 4, but when Sony decided to skip Gamescom 2015, Microsoft knew it had a golden opportunity to gain some ground.

Despite the enormous size and scale of E3, video game companies simply can’t fit everything into a single show. That’s why it’s always worth paying attention when Cologne, Germany hosts Gamescom — Europe’s largest gaming trade fair.

It’s basically a second E3, and on Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET, Microsoft will kick off the show with a live streamed briefing showcasing games we saw earlier this summer and debuting new games for the very first time. More →

Last month, Microsoft improved its Games with Gold program dramatically by giving Xbox One owners an additional free game to download every month. Xbox has always been a step behind PlayStation when it comes to rewarding subscribers of its pay-to-play online service, but this addition brings Games with Gold and PS Plus much closer to parity.

Considering the fact that we’ve had a new Call of Duty game to look forward to every year since 2003, it can be hard to muster up excitement for yet another entry. But having played nearly an hour of Black Ops 3 multiplayer at E3 2015 this year, I have to admit that I’m kind of excited. More →

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 →
