Don’t expect Xbox 360 games to run on PC anytime soon, though Phil Spencer says ‘never say never’

Well, bad news: Not only was Microsoft not testing out Xbox One games natively on PC, but Xbox 360 emulation isn't likely a near-term thing, either. Now for the bit I was hoping for—that original Xbox and Xbox 360 emulation on PC? "I'd love to run PowerPC games on Windows, that's the 360 ones," Spencer said. "It was hard to get those PowerPC games to run on the fixed spec machine that we have with Xbox One. Honestly we'd probably stream than before we try to run them natively, and I don't know i

Asus ROG Phone 2 may be unveiled as soon as next month

A new rumor from Chinese microblogging website Weibo suggests Asus is prepping an announcement for July. That matches with a report we saw in April that suggested the ROG Phone 2 would be with us by the end of September. The dates also make sense considering the original ROG Phone was announced in June 2018. Exactly what upgrades we can expect for the ROG Phone 2 are currently unclear, as we've yet to see any firm rumors about the new Asus handset. The original phone came with trigger buttons on

Xbox at E3 2019: What to expect

Of the three console makers, Microsoft is the last remaining E3 traditionalist — still running a huge keynote, still bringing its “biggest E3 presence ever” to Los Angeles. It may fold into Microsoft’s plans for its next Xbox, which would depend on how much of that the company is willing to discuss at E3 2019. On May 30, Spencer tweeted that there will be 14 titles from Xbox Game Studios in the company’s E3 2019 show. An exact launch date for Game Pass on PC was not given, but one is expected at

EA at E3 2019: What to expect — and what won’t be there

Once a mainstay of the pre-show news conferences, Electronic Arts is no longer doing that, opting instead for a series of live streaming broadcasts from the floor of EA Play 2019 — which is likewise near E3 (in Hollywood) but not at E3 for a fourth straight year. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen OrderThis is the big one, leading off EA Play’s livestream at at 9:30 a.m. PT/12:30 p.m. EA Sports: Madden, FIFA, NHL, and NBA LiveEA Sports’ death-and-taxes annual offerings all launch within two months of one an

Don’t expect Rainbow Six: Siege 2 anytime soon, but a PS5 & Xbox Project Scarlett re-release is almost certain

Easily on of the most successful adherents of the 'Games as a Service' business model so far, Ubisoft's Rainbow Six: Siege released in 2015, and has been going strong ever since, with regular updates, expansions, and community engagement for the esports focused competitive shooter. In an ideal world tomorrow, we’d love players from every platform to be able to play together. At least Tom Clancy fans have Ghost Recon: Breakpoint to look forward to this year instead. For more, check out the bigges

E3 2019: What to expect from all the major publishers this year

Below, we decided to take a 'health check' of the major publishers ahead of E3. We examine the recent games they've brought to the table, the headlines they've generated, how they performed at E3 2018, and what we expect from them at E3 2019. Black Ops 4's reveal came before E3, but Activision did reveal Sekiro at the Microsoft conference. It's getting there, but an ongoing software drought hasn't looked good next to Sony's volley of popular open world games. Crackdown 3 should've been a top-tie

What’s a cheap game that’s way better than its price led you to expect?

There's a foolish part of us that, no matter how many times it's proved wrong, assumes that more expensive things will definitely 100% be better than cheap things. There are plenty of videogames that cost less than a nice lunch and yet are an absolute blast to play. Games like Super Hexagon, One Finger Death Punch, Cargo Commander, Reigns, or Devil Daggers to name just a few. Our weekend question is this: What's a cheap game that's way better than its price led you to expect? Samuel Roberts: Fre
