Microsoft: Not Easy To Add Achievements To Original Xbox Games Via Xbox One …
Microsoft adds ‘Halo: Reach’ and other backward compatible games to the Xbox One.
If Microsoft is to add Xbox One backwards compatibility to original Xbox games, one area the company is struggling to do is to add achievements in them.Microsoft has failed to give sales of the Xbox One a major boost during the penultimate month of 2015, once again losing the sales battle in the United States for November to the PlayStation 4, but the company continues to have big plans for the coming year, and the Azure tech plays a major part.
According to a new Twitter message from Phil Spencer, the leader of the gaming division, plans are in place to allow all developers who are bringing titles to the platform to use the cloud technology to improve the experience that gamers can access. The executive also used the conversations he has been having with gamers to explain that Microsoft does not have plans to offer extra information about third-party titles, including the long-awaited Titanfall 2, before the publishers that own the franchises are willing to talk about them. In response to a fan on Twitter, Spencer advised that if interest was shown on the official Xbox Feedback site, the team would consider taking further action. Now we’ve got some more information on that latter series of deals, as Microsoft will apparently be hosting the “biggest Xbox sale ever” from December 22 through January 7.
Over the last several weeks it had been difficult to find the controller which has a wide array of customizable features including rear paddles which can be mapped to any button the user wants, hair trigger locks, custom length thumbsticks, and an app that allows players to customize virtually everything about the controller. If the Azure cloud gaming technology is successful, then it will allow studios to deliver improved performance on Microsoft devices, which will, in turn, draw more gamers to them in the long-term. Other inclusions to the backwards compatible title list are “Doritos Crash Course,” “Peggle,” “Braid,“ “Kane & Lynch 2,” “Hydro Thunder,” “Motocross Madness,” “Spelunky,” “Ticket to Ride,” “Iron Brigade,” “Zuma’s Revenge” and “Splosion Man.” Xbox Live Gold members get exclusive access to a number of selected games twice in a month. But the upcoming Xbox Store sale does look very promising, and it looks like a good way for people to save on Christmas presents for the console gamer in the family. But if you are lucky enough to snag one, Best Buy is offering free expedited shipping so that you can use or gift the new controller by Christmas on Friday!
If an application does make an appearance on OSX, the features offered are likely to be more limited than its Windows 10 alternative, with basic ways to interact with Xbox-related services. Snippets of NBA 2K16, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Fallout 4, and Halo 5 can be seen in the 42-second clip, suggesting that different genres and a whole lot of popular games will be included among the deals.
The spring launch slate is anchored by Quantum Break, a very ambitious title that aims to mix traditional gameplay with a television series that will explain the point of view of the villain and his motivations. According to Microsoft, the company will continue to add more titles and promises to bring more games in the library of Xbox One Backward Compatibility games. A range of bundles that feature the home console are offered for the 349.99 dollars (299.99 Euro) price for the holiday period in select stores and in limited quantities. Fans are the driving force to develop a better Xbox Experience so the company highlighted the website called Xbox User Voice where fans can share feedback and they can also request the games of their choice. Titles like “Fallout 3,” “Just Cause 2,” “Gears of War 3” “Dirt 3” and “Assassin’s Creed II” are accountable for those playing hours spent on Xbox One.
