Not as big! Rounder! Red ring of deathier! Project Gotham Racing 4! The Xbox 360 had it all, and faceplates to spare. It’s been ten years since the Xbox 360 launched. Ten years of highs and lows.

Tekken 7 has been knocking around Japanese arcades since March, gobbling up coins and fight-sticks. Bandai Namco has been mum on when the game can be expected to escape those gaming halls, but one report has it locked for a 2016 release.
Don't you wish that you could keep your cherished memories of Gotham City, like that time the Scarecrow stabbed you full of funky fear juice, in a format that would preserve them? Well now you can, thanks to the latest patch for Batman Arkham Knight.
