Xbox One Backwards Compatibility update: THREE new Xbox 360 games arrive from Microsoft | Gaming | Entertainment

Xbox’s Larry Hryb has announced a new batch of Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games are being launched today.

A total of three will be made available today via both disc install and digital library.

Child of Eden, Goat Simulator & KOF SKY STAGE are coming to Xbox One Backward Compatibility today, Microsoft have confirmed.

As usual, each games has a certain amount of votes on the official Xbox One leaderboards, with The King of Fighters: Sky Stage ranking in lowest this week.

Both KOF SKY STAGE and Goat Simulator have clocked in less than a 1,000 votes each, making Child of Eden the most wanted of the bunch.

Child of Eden is a rhythm action game created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, which was originally launched on Xbox 360 in 2011.

“Child of Eden thrusts the player into the center of a battle to save Project Lumi, a mission to reproduce a human personality inside Eden, the archive of all human memories. As the project nears completion, the archive is invaded by an unknown virus. The player’s mission is to save Eden from the virus, restoring hope and peace.”

Goat Simulator is a third-person perspective action video game launched in 2014 by developers Coffee Stain Studios.

“Gameplay-wise, Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you’re a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. Destroy things with style, such as doing a backflip while headbutting a bucket through a window, and you’ll earn even more points!”

The King of Fighters: Sky Stage was released in 2012 for the Xbox 360 and published by SNK Playmore.

It follows news of original Xbox Backwards Compatibility games coming soon from Microsoft.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that original Xbox games are close, and that fans should expect some unannounced titles to be included.

Speaking to Gamespot, he said: “We’re close, we’re really close.

“I have a little dashboard I go to and I can see all the games [and] where they are in getting approvals in the pipeline.

“I know the games that are coming for the original Xbox but I don’t think we’ve announced them all. We have to do this in partnership with partners, but we’re still on track. I feel really good. The games look great.”

Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility was announced at E3 2017.

Destiny’s remaining PlayStation exclusives finally arrive on Xbox

All of the original Destiny’s PlayStation-exclusive content is, at long last, available on Xbox, finally bringing people on Microsoft systems up to speed after multiple years of lagging behind their Sony counterparts.

Thanks to a marketing deal between Sony and Destiny publisher Activision, the game and all of its expansions — and now Destiny 2 — have featured content that is available first on PlayStation, not Xbox. The content includes items like powerful exotic-level weapons; lengthy cooperative missions called strikes; quest lines; maps for the Crucible, the game’s competitive multiplayer component; vehicles such as Sparrows, a Guardian’s personal hovercraft; and unique sets of armor.

Activision and Sony originally behaved as if the exclusivity window for each set of content would run for one year. For instance, Destiny launched in September 2014 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and the PlayStation-only content from its first year wasn’t released on Xbox until September 2015 — alongside the game’s third expansion, Destiny: The Taken King.

However, Activision and Sony have always left themselves some wiggle room with the wording of the timing by saying that content will remain exclusive until “at least [a year from its PlayStation debut].” The phrase “at least” does a lot of work there: Last summer — when everybody was expecting that The Taken King’s PlayStation exclusives would arrive on Xbox in September 2016 alongside the Rise of Iron expansion — Activision and Sony quietly pushed them back for an additional year.

As of today — more than two years after the debut of The Taken King — anybody who owns the expansion on Xbox 360 or Xbox One has access to the following items that were originally exclusive to its PS3 and PS4 versions:

  • Jade Rabbit, an exotic scout rifle
  • Zen Meteor, an exotic sniper rifle
  • Sector 618, a Crucible map set on Earth
  • Echo Chamber, a strike on Venus
  • Sublime Engram armor sets for each of the three classes
  • “Fight Fire with Fire” quest from Petra Venj

Destiny: Rise of Iron - Icarus Crucible multiplayer combat

Bungie/Activision

On the plus side, Sony and Activision did not extend the window for the PS4-exclusive items in Rise of Iron. The following content is now available on Xbox One:

  • Icarus, a Crucible map set on Mercury
  • Iron Camelot armor for all classes from Dusty Iron Engrams
  • “Show of Strength” quest from Tyra Karn

With Rise of Iron, Destiny developer Bungie also added a number of new items that were available only in a Treasure of Ages package. (That’s a mystery box that debuted in March 2017’s Age of Triumph update for Destiny.) Until this point, players on both PS4 and Xbox One could only hope to get those items as a random drop from a Treasure of Ages box. Now they can buy whatever they want directly from the Eververse Trading Company with the in-game currency Silver Dust. Here’s the full list:

  • Chronoshot ornament for Vex Mythoclast
  • Devourer of Moons ornament for Necrochasm
  • Settled Score ornament for Touch of Malice
  • Undiscovered Country ornament for No Land Beyond
  • Basilisk’s Glory ornament for the Suros Regime
  • Tigershark ornament for Dragon’s Breath
  • Perfected Predator ornament for Lord of Wolves
  • Brushfire shader
  • Barrage shader
  • The Blast of War shader

In case you’re wondering about Destiny 2, well, Activision and Sony are saying that its PS4 exclusives won’t be available in the Windows PC or Xbox One versions of the game until “at least Fall 2018.” That’s the line for now, anyway.

Samsung is working on an ‘in-folding’ smartphone; confirmed to arrive in 2018

While Samsung has been teasing the arrival of a smartphone with a folding display for long, a recent report, finally confirmed the same. The news comes from Samsung Electronics’ President in charge of Smartphone Business Ko Dong-jin who disclosed that the electronics giant will launch a folding smartphone in 2018. The statement was made at the launch of the Note 8 smartphone, but there are now more details on Samsung’s folding smartphone strategy.

Samsung's in-folding smartphone concept

Samsung’s in-folding smartphone concept

The source of the new comes from Korea’s ETnews that put out a lengthy report, explaining Samsung’s never-ending dedication to build its first smartphone with a folding display.

Samsung’s current goal is to develop a display with a 3R curvature. 3R is basically a number that shows how far a display can be bent. The same figure also indicates the curvature that covers a circle with a radius of 3 mm.

Samsung Electronics has reportedly been working on a folding smartphone for the past 4 to 5 years. While the company initially setup a goal to build an out-folding smartphone, that goal changed about 1 to 2 years ago.

The report details how Samsung Electronics had invested both effort and substantial money in its quest to develop a smartphone with an in-folding display at the beginning of the project. The company developed not just foldable displays,  but had carried out substantial R & D on parts and materials that would work well with the in-folding technology.

Strangely, that goal changed soon after and Samsung changed direction to work on an outward-folding smartphone.

And after researching on out-folding smartphones, just a year ago, Samsung again changed direction and moved back to the earlier goal of developing a smartphone with an in-folding display.

Samsung’s reasoning behind changing direction in design and research is unknown. ETNews does hint that since Samsung already had a head start with in-folding almost half decade ago, it is currently at a point today, where it can begin on the commercialisation process of foldable smartphones. The electronics giant is reportedly done with the R & D stage but has a few obstacles or hurdles that it has to overcome before these smartphones can be put into production.

Overturn, Anime-Motivated VR Game Established To Arrive On HTC Vive, Oculus Rift In October

(Last Current On: September 27, 2017)

A new VR sport themed soon after animes and that includes stealth-oriented gameplay with a pleasant encouraging of explosive, to start with-individual battle termed Overturn is established to release on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

VRFocus is reporting that YJM Games’ Overturn will release on October 17th for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

The plot to the sport is very darn uncomplicated: You and a fellow examination topic named MAGI must escape from a facility making use of what ever indicates attainable.

The sport will see the two of you making an attempt to start out off by stealthing your way by the halls and corridors in an attempt to get your hands on some necessarily mean firepower, and then later you will be capable to purchase an assortment of hefty armament, such as highly effective psychic capabilities, charges, grenades, explosives, and beam rifles.

A moment and a half long gameplay trailer was recently released, that includes some gameplay from the future title that you can look at out under.

The colorful sport continue to functions disembodied hands floating close to on the display, but at least it has hands. VR games that are just weapons floating on-display are completely the worst.

Overturn doesn’t conclude soon after you escape from the facility, however. The trailer reveals players taking down mechs, attaining a vehicle and blasting down enemies together the way.

A large amount of the VR games have not been very spectacular, and Oveturn hasn’t really stepped up a great deal to prove that VR games are anything more than a gimmick. Even continue to, the anime artwork-design and the inclusion of some stealth features definitely provides some flavor to the sport that isn’t current in other VR games, but it continue to kind of looks a large amount like the below-par VR fanfare we have been viewing.

Having said that, at least maybe we’ll start out to see more games department out from the typical fluff we have been viewing from digital reality games. The blend of FPS mechanics and psychic capabilities could give the sport a very little little bit of additional spice.

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility update: SIX new Xbox 360 games arrive | Gaming | Entertainment

It’s been a quiet month so far for the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program.

But while things have been slow compared to August and July, Microsoft have now announced their new batch of Xbox 360 games.

Six have been added to the library today, bringing a mix of different genres and developers to Backwards Compatibility.

This gaming list includes Undertow, Monopoly Deal, Virtual-On, Slender: The Arrival, Super Contra & Saints Row: The Third.

As you can see above, it’s an eclectic mish-mash of games.

Saints Row: The Third is the most requested of the bunch, having garnered over 44,000 votes on the official BC forums.

The others have much smaller amounts of votes on the official leaderboard, while there’s also a strict limitation on one title.

While Virtual-On is part of the official games list, it’s actually only available to play in Japan right now.

September has been a pretty quiet month for the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility, with no new announcements made until today.

The last additions were made at the end of the August, providing three Telltale Walking Dead games for the BC program.

The Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program currently boasts over 400 games and continues to provide new additions monthly.

And while a lot of the most requested titles have now been added, Microsoft still have plans to add a few more.

There are still a few in the top ten that are hoped for, although the likes of Skyrim and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare seem unlikely to ever make the switch.

That’s because remastered versions of those popular titles have recently been launched, leaving very little incentive for the developers to back the program with those specific titles.

But while we may not see the release of games like LA Noire in the near future, Microsoft have their own plans for a few in the top ten.

Both Halo 3 and Halo 4 have been confirmed for the Backwards Compatibility program by Microsoft, who look set to launch them in a bundle of four titles.

Unfortunately for those hoping for a quick release, it doesn’t seem likely that Halo: CE Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, and Halo 4 will be arriving this month.

A recent blogpost from 343 Industries has revealed that extra time is being put into the selected Halo titles, before they are allowed to launch.

“We know everyone is very eager to get their hands on the Xbox One back-compat release of Halo: CE Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, and Halo 4,” the post reads. 

“We are eager to get them into your hands! The Xbox back-compat team is hard at work on final polish and we continue to work closely with them to help test and evaluate all four games for launch. 

“We’re taking extra time to ensure the experience lives up to fan expectations but I hear we’re making great progress and release should be getting closer. 

“As soon as we have a final date we’ll be sure to let you know.”

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility: Three new games arrive following Games with Gold boost | Gaming | Entertainment

The first Games with Gold September 2017 titles have been launched by Microsoft, adding more selection to Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Fans can currently grab Hydro Thunder Hurricane as part of the Xbox One Backwards Compatibility program, until September 15.

Hydro Thunder Hurricane: “Featuring rocket-powered speedboats, dynamic water and insane scenarios, Hydro Thunder Hurricane is the impressive sequel to the classic arcade boat racer. 

“With multiple single-player and multiplayer modes and a huge selection of boats and courses, Hydro Thunder Hurricane is packed with fun and stellar content.”

It will then be replaced by top online shooter, Battlefield 3, which will be available until the end of the month.

Both are top choices to expand your Xbox 360 classics library, helping to get the new month off to a good start.

August saw around 12 new Backwards Compatible titles make their debut, not a bad haul by any standards.

The last announcements for the month were made on August 31, when Xbox’s Larry Hryb confirmed three more classic games would be added to the library.

Xbox One owners can now play Xbox 360 versions of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series, The Walking Dead: Season 2 and The Walking Dead: Michonne.

Season one of The Walking Dead is the most popular of the new additions, receiving nearly 8.5k votes from fans.

This was closely followed by Season Two, which racked up 6,197 votes.

But it’s a far cry from the most popular game on the Backwards Compatibility fan list, which is currently topped by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 with 184k votes.

Next up is Skyrim with 178k, followed by Modern Warfare 3 with 133k and the original Modern Warfare with 121k.

As with all Backwards Compatibility titles, the new additions can be found in the ‘My Games and Apps’ section of the Xbox dashboard.

The highly-rated Walking Dead games let players make choices that can potentially alter the storyline and change the way characters behave around you.

“Play as Lee Everett, a convicted criminal, who has been given a second chance at life in a world devastated by the undead,” reads the official description.

“Experience events, meet people and visit locations that foreshadow the story of Deputy Sheriff Rick Grimes. 

“A tailored game experience – actions, choices and decisions you make will affect how your story plays out across the entire series.”

More AAA titles To Arrive on PlayStation VR

It is a fact that VR technology still does not have a large audience like that of consoles. Despite this, Sony has decided to bet on this industry with PlayStation VR, a system that gradually gains ground in the virtual reality market. Proof of this is that sales of the device have positively surprised Sony, who recently pledged to bring more AAA titles to the platform.

During a meeting at the GameStop Expo in Las Vegas, Asad Qizilbash, Vice President of marketing for Sony, said that they will not leave this market and that they will work constantly to bring new experiences to PlayStation VR. In the words of Qizilbash, Sony is “super-focused” on this system and also plans to double its efforts to bring “some really good games” to the device.

While the PlayStation VR catalog is heavily made up of indie titles for the time being, Sony will take care of bringing more and more AAA titles to virtual reality. Qizilbash clarified that the company does not force developers to work on this platform.

From his point of view, it would be a mistake because the result would not be optimal. So, only studios interested in this technology are those that work together with Sony.

Qizilbash said that they considered Farpoint as an AAA production for PlayStation VR, as well as Resident Evil 7. Not only because of the complexity of the game, compared to other titles available, but due to its scale and immersion level. Finally, Qizilbash said they will retain a “really good balance” between independent titles and AAA productions for PlayStation VR.

Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim/Fallout 4 and DOOM VFR are just some of the AAA titles that will come in the future to PlayStation VR. Which AAA titles or franchises would you like to see on PlayStation VR? Let us know in the comments below.

ABOVE VIDEO: Rocket Launch of Soyuz MS-05 with 3 Crew Members in Stunning Night Launch.

(NASA) – After a six-hour spaceflight, NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik, Sergey Ryazanskiy of Roscosmos and Paolo Nespoli of ESA (European Space Agency) arrived at the International Space Station at 5:54 p.m. EDT Friday to continue important scientific research in the orbiting laboratory.

The three crewmates launched aboard the Soyuz MS-05 spacecraft from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 11:41 a.m. (9:41 p.m. Baikonur time), orbited Earth four times, and docked at the space station.

Following standard pressurization and leak checks, the hatches between the spacecraft and station will be opened.

The arrival of Bresnik, Ryazanskiy and Nespoli restored the station’s crew to six people, which includes Expedition 52 Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of Roscosmos and Flight Engineers Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer of NASA. The new Expedition 52 crew members will spend more than four months conducting approximately 250 science investigations in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences and technology development.

The newly-expanded Expedition 52 crew soon will conduct new science investigations arriving on SpaceX’s 12th NASA-contracted commercial resupply mission targeted to launch in August.

Investigations the crew will work on include a study developed by the Michael J. Fox Foundation of the pathology of Parkinson’s disease to aid in the development of therapies for patients on Earth.

The crew will use the special nature of microgravity in a new lung tissue study to advance understanding of how stem cells work and pave the way for further use of the microgravity environment in stem cell research.

Expedition astronauts also will assemble and deploy a microsatellite investigation seeking to validate the concept of using microsatellites in low-Earth orbit to support critical operations, such as providing lower-cost Earth imagery in time-sensitive situations such as tracking severe weather and detecting natural disasters.

During their expedition, the crew members also are scheduled to receive an Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and a Russian Progress resupply mission, each delivering several tons of food, fuel, supplies and research such as an investigation to demonstrate the merits of manufacturing fiber optic filaments in microgravity.

Whitson, Fischer and Yurchikhin are scheduled to remain aboard the station until September. Shortly after their departure, NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joseph Acaba and Russian cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin will join the Expedition 53 crew. Bresnik, Ryazanskiy and Nespoli are scheduled to return in December.

For more than 16 years, humans have lived and worked continuously aboard the International Space Station, advancing scientific knowledge and demonstrating new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth that will enable long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space.

A global endeavor, more than 200 people from 18 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 1,900 research investigations from researchers in more than 95 countries.

Moto Z2 Force noticed and speculated to arrive shortly

The Lenovo-backed Motorola brand name has been rumored to be performing on a new mid-array flagship smartphone referred to as ‘Moto Z2 Force.’ While the company hasn’t delivered any official affirmation relating to the similar, a new report appears to be to declare that the new smartphone was not too long ago noticed on China’s official Regulatory Company web-site, bearing the model range ‘XT1789-05.’

Official launch shortly

It is appealing to observe how the model range ‘XT1789-05’ is the similar as was noticed someday very last 7 days on benchmarking web-site, AnTuTu. This even further presents away the possibility that the smartphone could possibly incredibly well be on its way for an official launch at any time shortly.

As for the technical specs of the product is predicted to pack 5.2-inch QHD screen with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. The smartphone is even further predicted to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC that apparently equips 8 Kryo-cores alongside with Adreno 540 GPU for graphics. The product also apparently extends support for LPDDR4X RAM.

The flagship has reducing-edge specs

On the storage entrance, the alleged Moto Z2 Force smartphone is predicted to provide 6GB of RAM alongside 128GB of inside storage. It has been presumed by quite a few reports that the product will come alongside with an optional expandable solution via its microSD card slot. On the camera entrance, the smartphone is predicted to sport a 12MP #Rear Camera with a 5MP entrance shooter.

By beforehand leaked render, Motorola is also predicted to pack two individual imaging sensors on the #Moto Z2 Plus’ back again panel.

The images that appeared at that time also discovered AT&T emblem positioned in direction of the base of the smartphone. The product — like most other Motorola smartphones — is predicted to come with support for Moto Mods. Moto Mods are company’s way to enhance the person-experience with their smartphones.

Aside from this, Motorola is also closely speculated to get rid of its 3.5mm headphone jack in its upcoming smartphone. Motorola will alternatively decide for a USB Type-C connector. Given that the smartphone has been mentioned on China’s official Regulatory web-site, it is harmless to suppose that the launch day of Motorola’s Moto Z2 Force is in the vicinity of. Reviews are suggesting that Motorola is predicted to keep an event on July 25th in #New York City. The possibility of Motorola launching its smartphone at the New York City event is high.
