Unless you've been living under a rock, the past three days have been an onslaught of adoration and vitriol for Microsoft’s newest console, Xbox One. Because the recent press conference was so vague, opinions about what the console is capable of is all over the map. For some, the new console means awesome new graphics, better online gaming, and tons of Fantasy Sports support. For others, the new systems’ disregard for indie games, ignorance of backwards compatibility, and obvious cash grab are pushing them away faster than a first date with a hidden snaggletooth. No matter where you stand, the Xbox One has everyone talking about what lies ahead in the next generation of gaming.
The follow-up to the surprise hit of the same title, Dead Island: Riptide is now on shelves and ready for you to play with your buddies. Some of you are like me -- you’d heard of the zombie RPG original but missed it in the flood of constant video game releases. So, with fresh and untarnished eyes, here’s my look at Dead Island: Riptide.
If rumors and speculation are to be believed, the next Xbox and the PlayStation 4 will not be backwards compatible with downloadable games. That means any games bought on the Xbox 360 (XBLA or Games on Demand), will be stuck on our old consoles gathering dust. If that’s the case, then I will never buy a downloadable game from Microsoft ever again (and most likely Sony, too). In my eyes, these companies are violating an unwritten agreement with consumers that the games we buy should still work years into the future.
