Battlefield: Bad Company now playable on Xbox One

The Xbox 360's original code name was a nod to The Matrix

Microsoft's home consoles represent a blind spot in my video game knowledge. For one reason or another, I've never owned one. But even though an Xbox has never graced my television screen, I've still spent countless hours playing 360 games ...
