Xbox 360 fans, let me hear you roar! I’m speaking directly, of course, to the incredibly noisy hardware in Microsoft’s machine. But there’s a reason we put up with the console’s quirks – it offered probably the best, and certainly most diverse, catalogue of its generation. Which means that a list of the very best Xbox 360 games is packed with absolute stonkers, from shooters, to simulation, and the names that introduced indie gaming to the mainstream. Just don’t stand this article on its side when you’re reading it. It might take up less space, but you’ll scratch all the words. Forza Motorsport 3 For many studios, the pursuit of realism only goes as far as recording the ping of an M1 Garand as its last round is expended. But for Turn 10, simulation was a calling. Conveniently for the rest of us – and for Microsoft, pouring fuel into the series – that simulation turned out to have the structure of a great game: a deep, … [Read more...] about The 15 best Xbox 360 games

Xbox One backwards compatibility of Xbox 360 games was Microsoft's big surprise at E3 2015, and since debuting the feature later that year, the publisher has been hard at work rolling out new releases on a month-by-month basis. From fan-favourite Xbox Live Arcade games to some of the biggest Xbox 360 exclusives such as Gears of War 3 and Halo: Reach, the current roster represents a wide selection of some of the console's greatest hits. While both downloadable and disc-based games work on Xbox One, since games are emulated on a case-by-case basis, not every title has been given the backwards compatibility treatment - so below is a run down of every game made available so far. We'll be updating the list with each subsequent new release, as well as Digital Foundry's verdict if they have one.

Six more Xbox 360 games that are backward compatible on Xbox One are getting enhanced updates — like improved pixel count and enhanced color depth — on Xbox One X, Microsoft announced during a livestream today. Those new Xbox One X-enhanced titles include Rockstar Games’ open-world Western Red Dead Redemption and Epic Games’ third-person shooter Gears of War 2. Sega’s Sonic Generations, which was originally released on Xbox 360 in 2011, also joins the list of backward compatible games — and it too is now Xbox One X enhanced. Rounding out the list are Vigil Games’ Darksiders, Valve’s Portal 2 and LucasArts’ Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Those six new Xbox One X Enhanced games go live today. Today’s updates bring the number of Xbox One X-enhanced Xbox 360 games to 17.

Xbox One X owners looking for some fun Xbox 360 throwbacks now have some new options for enhanced games, including Crackdown, Microsoft announced today. The company has expanded the list of Xbox 360 games with Xbox One X enhancements by four, adding Crackdown, the 2007 open-world action game from Realtime Worlds; Fable Anniversary, the 2014 remaster of the original Fable; Forza Horizon, the inaugural 2012 entry in Playground Games’ open-world spinoff of the Forza Motorsport franchise; and The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, the well-regarded second iteration of CD Projekt Red’s Witcher series from 2011. Note that Microsoft shifted Forza Horizon into “end of life” status in October 2016, which means that it is no longer possible to buy it or any of its downloadable content. You’ll need to already own the game, or acquire a disc copy, in order to play it on an Xbox One X these days. It’s also worth pointing out that the original Crackdown has not been … [Read more...] about Crackdown and more Xbox 360 games enhanced for Xbox One X
