Finally, Titanfall private lobbies have arrived

One of the biggest let downs in Titanfall was the inability to play private matches. It was a very peculiar omission from the title and one that definitely hurt their review scores across the board.

Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is…really good

For a while, we;’ve suspected that the ported Xbox 360 version of Respawn’s Titanfall was going to be pretty bad. Hit with delay after delay, and ported by a primarily PlayStation-focused developer, all signs pointed to the port being underwhelming. I’m happy to report that we were completely wrong.

Microsoft is considering Xbox 360 emulation on the Xbox One

We’re in a new generation of console gaming, with both machines boasting solid performance upgrades and more of that social network integration that is all the buzz these days. One thing that neither console has though? Backwards compatibility for the previous generation. Sony has a streaming idea to bring some retro love to the PS4. But Microsoft has a better idea in the works.

Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is 30fps, but “the true experience”

We’ve been worried about the Xbox 360 version of Xbox One marquee-title Titanfall since well before the game received its first delay. Then it got delayed. And delayed a second time. that’s the sort of stuff that sets alarm bells off.  Was the delay to get impatient people to buy an Xbox One, or because the 360 version is just terrible? According to the studio responsible for the port, Bluepoint games, it certainly wasn’t the latter.

Titanfall on Xbox 360 delayed. Again

For console gamers in South Africa, the Xbox 360 would have had to have been the platform of choice for Respawn’s mech-battler Titanfall. Before the whole thing was denied a local release, anyway.  Only it’s starting to look like that version is not only ugly, but runs poorly too. And that rumours been given a bit of a shot in the arm, as the Xbox 360 version has been delayed a second time.

Marc Whitten leaves Microsoft

Microsoft is certainly going through a reshuffle. The Xbox division has been faced with tons of changes - and now there's another one. Marc Whitten, Chief Product Officer of Xbox, will be leaving the team to become Chief Product Officer of Sonos. What's going on at Xbox?

Titanfall Xbox 360 ‘runs at 30fps, sub-720p’

According to insider Pete Dodd, the Xbox 360 port of Titanfall will be “more akin to how Battlefield 4 was ported to last-gen consoles.” Dodd, who previously revealed that an Xbox 360 version was on the way from Bluepoint Games and not Respawn Entertainment, explained that efforts now were more focused on upping the frame-rate, with the HD factor being less of a priority.

The 1 million Gamerscore barrier broken

I’ve related before my general nonchalance when it comes to achievements and trophies. I find collecting them utterly pointless, and feel that their perpetual pursuit has even changed the way games are made. My own chagrin aside, I certainly understand their appeal. With that, hats off to Xbox gamer Stallion83 (that’s Raymond Cox to his mum) – who’s become the first gamer to rack up a million in Gamerscore.

PSA: Win a 40″ LED 3D TV from Xbox and World of Tanks

I know you're all suckers for competitions. There's nothing like free stuff to make us happy, and there's a competition that I wish I could take part in, too. Alas, I have integrity and don't feel it's appropriate, but man, I wish I could get this fancy shmancy new TV.
