Burnout Paradise developer Criterion Games recently confirmed that the Xbox 360 version of the title will be playable on the Xbox One. The Xbox One's upcoming backward compatibility service will cover the racing title, but nobody has said exactly when it will be available.

The Xbox One's backwards compatibility will launch sometime after the console's new Windows 10 desktop arrives in November, and it will make more than 100 games playable on the console. Because Burnout Paradise will be running on an emulated Xbox 360 system it will be able to support DLC, cloud saves, and multiplayer.

Users in the Xbox One preview program are already able to try many other titles that will be playable through the emulated system.

Burnout Paradise was first released back in 2008 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and on PC the next year. The game takes place in the open-world Paradise City, where players can compete in various types of races. Additional racing modes were available via online multiplayer, and DLC included a new area, Big Surf Island. It got good reviews from critics, but Burnout Paradise was the last major Burnout game that was released.

So, are you excited that Burnout Paradise will soon be playable on Xbox One? Would you like to see a new title in the series? Let us know in the comments!

Criterion Games has an "amazing" announcement to reveal soon https://www.gameskinny.com/3i2ot/criterion-games-has-an-amazing-announcement-to-reveal-soon https://www.gameskinny.com/3i2ot/criterion-games-has-an-amazing-announcement-to-reveal-soon Sun, 12 Jul 2015 09:37:02 -0400 Ford James

Developer of the hugely popular Burnout franchise and recently Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Criterion Games, has teased “something amazing” is in the works, and we won’t have to wait long for it to be revealed.

At E3 2014, Criterion showed an extreme sports game featuring a multitude of vehicles - including helicopters, planes, wingsuits, jetskis, wingsuits and more. However, this mystery title was nowhere to be seen at E3 2015. Could this be Criterion’s big reveal?

In an interview on the Criterion website, producer Pete Lake had this to say:

“I’ve been working on a couple of super-secret things that I can’t talk about yet. But we’ll have something amazing to reveal soon…!”

Gamescom is right around the corner, so perhaps we’ll see some news there? Personally, I’m hoping for a new Burnout title on the current generation, ideally in the same vein as Burnout 3: Takedown. Some of the crashes and explosions were fantastic fun. At the same time, a brand new IP would be very welcome too, especially if it is the unannounced project shown at E3 2014.

What are you guys hoping for? Let me know in the comments!

Humble Origin Bundle Raises Over 5 Million in Three Days https://www.gameskinny.com/cab59/humble-origin-bundle-raises-over-5-million-in-three-days https://www.gameskinny.com/cab59/humble-origin-bundle-raises-over-5-million-in-three-days Fri, 16 Aug 2013 10:17:38 -0400 Courtney Gamache

It's to no surprise that the Humble Origin Bundle raised over 5 million dollars within three days. Gamers are very wallet-savvy when it comes to purchasing video games. We know their prices, and see when there's a good deal. Not only is this a great deal for some top-notch games, but the proceeds go to charities.

How can Humble Origin Bundle raise 5 million in three days?

Look at the titles available! These games aren't just enticing, but they are also very expensive games at a low rate of $4.80. The current Origin bundle alone is worth well over $200, making this deal very worth the asking price. The games in the current bundle aren't the same genre either, they range from simulation, first-person shooter, and horror RPG. There's a game in there made for everyone, even if you're not too keen on a few of them.

The Humble Origin Bundle: Pay What You Want

The great thing about the Humble Origin Bundle would be the opportunity to pay what you want. You could give the bare minimum of the bundle to receive what games you want, or you can go over the top and pay an extreme amount. Don't forget, it's not just buying video games, you are also giving to charities in the process, so any amount helps.

Who said buying video games wasn't beneficial?

The Humble Origin Bundle Not Over Yet

Don't miss your chance on adding on to that 5 mil, and getting some epic games in the process. The bundle still has a running 12 days left on it, and we can only imagine what the final raised amount will be.
