‘Xbox Play Anywhere’ is launching September 13th

gears-of-war-4-1400

Starting September 13th, Microsoft is going to be going totally, like, full-integration between their XB1 and Windows 10 platforms. As someone is about to sell their XB1 because all future first-party titles will be playable on the computer (and frankly if I end up getting their new XB1 next year, I might as well maximize my value for the current one, while missing out on…nothing), this has me excited.

Rumor: Next PlayStation and Xbox will be Backwards Compatible

kaz

I was already going to begrudgingly buy a PlayStation 4.5/PlayStation Neo/whatever you want to call it. But being a complete sucker, I’ll totally buy it, if Sony includes backwards compatibility in the motherfucker. Please! Sony! Please!

Microsoft has ended ‘Xbox 360’ production; fare thee well

ballmer

It is with somber tones, ashen eyes, and a strained sadness that I announce that the Xbox 360 has ceased production. Man, my Xbox 360 and me spent some serious fucking time together. Or rather, my three Xbox 360s and me spent some serious fucking time together. From Gears to the Mass Effect series to Fallout 3, I probably chalked up thousands of hours of my twenty-somethings on Microsoft’s sophomore console.

New Xbox One Dashboard and Backwards Compatibility dropping November 12

New

It really chaps my ass that PS4 ain’t getting backwards compatibility. It really chaps my ass that Xbox One is getting backwards compatibility. This despite the fact that I friggin’ own an XB1. And come November 12, I’ll be able to rock a new dashboard and Xbox 360 games on my aforementioned MicroConsole.

Xbox Chief Phil Spencer asks his compatibility team about *original* Xbox support. A lot.

Phil Spencer.

Xbox. Like, I should be really excited about your vibin’, comrade. I own all your systems! I love the fact that your Head Czar wants *alll* the backwards compatibility. But with every victorious development that is revealed, I just wish Sony would handle their shit.

‘Mass Effect’ lead Casey Hudson joins Microsoft for Xbox and HoloLens work

Casey Hudson.

I mean…No matter what he does, the HoloLens couldn’t ever possibly be lamer than the ending to Mass Effect 3, right? Maybe? #LetItGoCaffLetItGo

OCULUS Buys Design Team Behind Kinect and 360 Controller. Gotta buy em all!

Oculus Rift.

THE OCULUS JUGGERNAUT SHALL NOT BE BOWED BY MORTAL OR DEITY. The company is acquiring talent like a motherfucker, and now they’re starting to snag up companies. The VR Headset That Shall Be has acquired the team that designed the Xbox 360 controller and the original Kinect. Kinect can get fucked and all that, but I’ll be goddamned if I wasn’t madly in love with the 360’s pad.

E3 2014 MASTERPOST: CLOSE-OUT, ASS-OUT, VIDEOS & NEWS COMPENDIUM

boom! OKAY FOLKS. Listen up. Between the alimony hearings, the drug use, the fact that Feedly went down for two fucking days, and my favorite butt plug melting in my dishwasher (which required an immediate journey to the upper mountains of the Appalachians to replace), there’s some E3 STUFF I DIDN’T GET TO. However, I also posted a fucking fuckload. Here in one batch is everything I’ve caught from E3. Posted, and previously unposted. Sorted by console. Don’t see your fave announcement/game? Hit the comments. I’ll add it. I know I’m missing a lot. Also! Use this space just to shoot the E3 shit. Read the rest of this entry »

xbox originals or something

Xbox is rolling out a fucking panoply of original TV content starting in June. Wee?I mean, I guess this is a good thing. ‘Cause outside of Titanfall, I don’t really have a fucking reason to use my XB1 these days. Here’s hoping the initiative is the fucking tits.

E.T. CARTRIDGES found in NEW MEXICO LANDFILL

E.T.!

It’s finally happened. Remember the urban legend that said there was a fucking landfill out in New Mexico filled with unsold copies of that raw-ass E.T: The Extratesticle tie-in game? Well, friends. Transmute that mythos into undeniable fact.
