Oh right, so much like the 'hybrid' system they already use.

The Xbox one is shoddy. Last night, myself and 3 friends tried to play online as usual. First off, I unlocked 3 achievements but didn’t get any notifications on screen. Instead, I got them through my phone. Great. Then my friends came online and we tried to play Evolve. This was a mistake as it’s not very good.

After this we went back into GTAV online. This is where the problems started. It kicked me out of party chat with an error message saying “Your network settings are blocking party chat. Error code XH8811561132GH (or something)” which meant I had to reset my Xbox. Lord knows why this came about as I’d been in a party chat all evening.

So after I reset my Xbox, I was back in. Just in time for one of my friends to get kicked out for no reason. In the end we managed one mission before someone else got kicked out… for no reason.

To console ourselves we all went back to the dashboard to take a look at the videos we’d just captured except, none of them had updated on the community feed. Even now they haven’t updated.

Rubbish.

So my 360 seemed to die at the moment.. so thinking about repairing (asked a local repair shop to give me a =quote), getting a replacement ( 74 euro (60 pounds these days?) for a slim 360, with a bigger hd than i have`), or maybe upgrade to a bone.. backwards compatibility is near 100%?

It would make sense to go for the Xbox one I think but.. Have a good look at the backwards compatible list first. Whilst there's lots of games on there, not everything is available.

I watched the Xbox One E3 presentation last night so you don’t have to.

It wasn’t very good. I quickly realised that I am no longer the target market for the Xbox but nevertheless, I soldiered on. They announced the ‘new’ Xbox One (formerly known as the Scorpio). This is going to be called the Xbox One X.

I can’t see that causing any confusion for kids explaining what they want to parents. Is it the Xbox One, Xbox One S or the Xbox One X?

They showed off the new Forza game whilst at the same time, showing off a new Porsche on stage. It looked like any other sports car to me so this was weird. Are gamers that into cars? Anyway, the game looked like a racing game. Dull.

Then it was the turn of a post apocalyptic FPS shooter. It’s part of the Metro franchise apparently. I tried the first one and thought it was depressing and not very good. This one looks nice but still depressing.

I’m doing this from memory and I can’t remember what game came up next **Edit**I can remember! It was an Assasins Creed game set in Egypt. **Edit** so I’ll go straight to the highlights for me from the conference. This included Cuphead (Coming September 9th) Crackdown 3 and the new Shadow of Mordor game. They also announced backwards compatibility for original Xbox games. How strange is that? They said you’ll be able to play Crimson Skies online again. This is good and hopefully we’ll be able to use our original Xbox game disks and not have to pay for the games again.

Other games included Sea of Thieves. Made by Rare, it’s an online pirate adventure type game. It looked a bit pap on screen to be honest and I can only imagine it will be ruined by playing online with other people. I think this will be a flop.

Ori and the blind forest 2. It reminded me that I should play the first one. This looked nice. Really nice. And was accompanied by Gareth Croker playing the piano on stage. He did the soundtrack for the first game.

There was a new 3D platform game that featured a squirrel. Nothing special.

EA announced a new IP that was a cross between Destiny and Titanfall. It looked nice but again, relied on you having friends to play online with.

Life is Strange 2 came up. I haven’t played the first but I heard it was quite good so I imagine this will carry on the story.

Along with all that there was a montage that showed 20 seconds of a load of games. Some of these looked interesting but there wasn’t enough to go on and form an opinion of.

So, E3 for Microsoft. A new console, backwards compatibility, a load of games that look ok and nothing that looks as good as Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Also, because I watched the stream via Mixer on the Xbox One (Microsofts version of Twitch) I now get free things included the Rare Replay collection, some DLC for other games and a couple of Indie games.

That's nice of them.

Well today I've learned that there was already two xbox ones: the Xbox one and the xbox one S.

And now there's a third called the X which is phonetically similar. What a dumb marketing decision.

Agreed. I do wonder if anyone actually said the new name out loud before they decided on it?

I'm not quite as fussed with the name. It works for me because games are supposed to be compatiable across all systems (and the XBOS is largely just a slim version of the XBO).

My biggest problem is that the shorthand will probably be known as XBOX which is probably what they intended but confusing cause the original Xbox is the Xbox. Or something.

You know what would help? Numbers.

XBOX = Xbox 1
Xbox 360 = Xbox 2
Xbox ONE = Xbox 3
Xbox ONE S = Xbox 3 Slim
Xbox ONE X = Xbox 3 ULTRA EXTREME SUPER DUPER EDITION

Not entirely. The original studio Dontnod is still working on the actual sequel; what you saw was a prequel called 'Before the Storm' that's being made by a different dev.

Good knowledge Bamba. I admit, I was half watching that bit.

@Gazchap. Yeah, he was on screen dressed up like a Crackdown agent and holding a gun. He did some shouting about the game and then they showed some footage. It looks ace.

Y'know what they didn't show in Crackdown 3? Blowing up a fucking building with the power of TEH CLOUDZ; just a building toppling over so something quick like that but they couldn't even do that right. Tch. No building falling over, no sale.

Read on the BBC that MS are determined that all current gen Xbox games will run on each console, so if you have an Xbox X then the games will look and sound really nice. Providing you have a 4K TV and a kick arse sound system. There won’t be anything else extra or different on the “X” other than that, also no VR headset or roadmap for one.

Also, backwards compatibility of old (Original) Xbox games, hope they will be free as you can pick up an original modded console with a 2TB HD and all the games on it for less than £200.

Like the hardware spec, but doubt I’ll get one don’t really use the one I have now

And there they are! All the free stuff has automatically been downloaded to my Xbox One, including the Rare Replay collection.

That's a pretty good deal for something that I probably would have watched anyway. Nice one Microsoft.

The team behind it just did an AMA on reddit - check a look

It's good news and bad news in the Xbox One world.

Bad news first. The Games with Gold for July are pretty lame. Kane and Lynch 2 is one of them which is quite possibly, the worst game I've ever played. There's also Lego Pirates of the Caribbean from the 360. I can't say I'm interested. On the Xbox One we have Grow up and Runbow. Neither of which I've heard of but we'll see, I could be surprised.

The good news is that the backwards compatible line up keeps growing. Just today I’ve seen that Radiant Silvergun and Virtual-ON have been released. Blazing Angels is also on there which I seem to recall buying once? We’ll see.

The original Xbox games should be coming soon too with Crimson Skies and Fusion Frenzy being the first on the lists. I don’t think I’ll be able to transfer my saves across but I don’t mind starting Crimson Skies again. It was fun!

I don't think they actually said anything about original Xbox games having online multiplayer restored, did they? Maybe they will get it working, but I didn't hear them announce it.

You're right, they didn't announce it. I have read conflicting reasons why they can and can't do it so I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'd be surprised if they did get it working again but you never know, they may go all out on it?
