Racing Games Are Coming Back In A Big Way

Within the last month, some amazing racing games have released. It’s been something of a micro-renaissance. These games—Wreckfest, Danger Zone 2, and Onrush—succeed because they avoid more serious minded gear-grinding in favor of going fast and crashing loud.

How To Run Backwards-Compatible Xbox 360 Games On Xbox One

Xbox One consoles are now backwards compatible with some Xbox 360 games. How do you play supported Xbox 360 games on an Xbox One? What happens with disc-based games? We’ve got a short video tutorial for you.

Microsoft’s console supports around 100 360 games right now, with more to come.

Weirdly, the Xbox One store doesn’t currently let you buy any of the backwards-compatible games. You can buy them digitally from an Xbox 360 or onXbox.com. Or, of course, you can get them on disc.

If you have save files for those games, upload them from your Xbox 360 by saving them to the cloud. Your Xbox One will grab them automatically.
