XBO suddenly got a lot more tempting...



Around the Network

Really great move, just two years late. It will definitely help them though.



So is the Xbox live market place or just retail discs?



So the 360 discontinuation is true.

Nice move MS, would like to see Sony do the same, even as I have a PS3.



Seriously, beeing able to play old games wins E3 ? Its nice and all but PS3 was backwards compatible (initialy) and it did squat for the console.

Both. BTW, they appear automatically if you own the game, so you don't have to rebuy them. Things just got real...



The XB1 conference is knocking it out of the park at the moment.



 

The PS5 Exists.

Yeah, but compared to what Microsoft originally said, this is big news. Sony doesn't have it, so its a big advantage.



Dang, hmm...

Its definetly a good advantage but I think ppl are overeacting a bit with the win E3 comments.
