Microsoft has cancelled the dragon-battling game 'Scalebound'

Earlier today, rumors swirled that the action-RPG Scalebound was in jeopardy. Microsoft has since announced that the project has indeed been canceled.
Yet another promised exclusive game for consoles has bitten the dust, with whatever stage the game was in now after almost a decade in development filed away into some lost world of forgotten IPs in some dusty old Area 51 warehouse of failed gaming projects! :)

xbox-one-backwards-compatibility.jpg
One of the biggest selling points for the Xbox One these days is the addition of backwards compatibility for certain Xbox 360 titles, which has added much to the console’s games lineup.

Originally these were dropped occasionally in larger groups, but Microsoft changed that up last year by putting them out whenever they were ready, typically every Tuesday and Thursday.
Every week, loyal Xbox One owners were treated to new Xbox 360 games being added to their library of 'backwards compatible titles', but for the last few weeks there was nothing, and the Internet as usual went a big crazy with rumors like its 'all over', Microsoft has stopped supporting us, etc. - But likely Microsoft has decided to reply to these 'naysayers' and good news is that more BC titles are coming soon!

You can’t buy these three licensed Activision games digitally anymore.

The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and TMNT Mutants in Manhattan have vanished from digital storefronts such as Steam as well as the Xbox, Nintendo eShop, and PlayStation stores.
The one problem with 'digital games', is that when 'licensing rights expire', the games disappear, unlike physical ones that still can be found online for sale via eBay or used video gaming stores.

"Paying marketing funds so another console's base can't play a piece of content doesn't feel like growth."

Xbox executive Phil Spencer has spoken out to clarify some comments he made earlier about how the video game industry can grow in the future.
Last year, Spencer made some comments about how Sony is laying out big bucks to secure 'exclusive' content for things like Call of Duty, whereas Microsoft is not doing that, they rather spend their money in doing other things for their gaming consoles, but now Spencer has decided to revisit those comments and try to clarify what he was trying to say about Xbox's marketing plans and future aims, etc.

The release of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard next month will bring something we’ve not seen in AAA game titles in this generation: Visual parity for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, at a 1080p and 60 FPS.
When it comes to video gaming graphics, the PS4 been winning over the XB1 in many cases, with more titles being released with 1080p/60fps output then compare to the XB1 platform, but somehow Capcom been able to get RE7 to perform the same on both boxes.
