Nominees for Destructoid's Best Xbox One Game of 2016

In 2015, Microsoft's sales pitch heading into the holiday season was "The greatest games lineup in Xbox history." It felt sort of hollow at the time, like those games were okay but that the best was still around the corner. As it turns out,...   read

Xbox's Games with Gold for December includes Burnout Paradise backward compatibility

Remember: The Xbox started life as an actual, giant X

I'm not sure how I'd never seen this before. Maybe I did and figured it was promo for the early 2000s X-Men flicks. But Microsoft's "Xbox" was once a very literal name. Microsoft is going into the archives to celebrate the Xbox 15th annive...   read

Phil Spencer chimes in on why Xbox doesn't sell in Japan

You know how Japanese games have 'O' and 'X' swapped on PlayStation? For those not already aware, in Japan 'O' is the universal symbol of "correct" or "affirmative" whereas 'X' is the opposite, conveying a sense of "wrong" or "negative." Co...   read

Don't rule out original Xbox games becoming backward compatible

It's safe to say that backward compatibility has been a big hit for Microsoft and the Xbox One. Usage statistics haven't been released (and if I had to guess, I'd wager that they're fairly low) but it's an important bullet point nevertheles...   read
