Phil Spencer Isn’t Ruling Out Xbox 360 Games on PC

One of the most touted features of the Xbox One is its ability to play Xbox 360 games via backwards compatibility. Ever since the feature was launched in 2015, Xbox One owners have been able to play a great deal of 360 games. Given Microsoft’s push toward PC gaming, many wondered if Xbox 360 backwards compatibility would one day be available on PC. Xbox head, Phil Spencer, is known for answering fans’ questions on Twitter. Recently, a follower asked him about the possibility of seeing Xbox 360 games on PC. Spencer gave a direct, if noncommittal answer. @Micro_666 @TobiasFoxtail Running BC reliably on all the different PC HW configs would be a lot more work than XB1, but never say never. — Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) February 7, 2017 There are numerous PC configurations out there. Because of that, it’s understandable why Spencer believes getting 360 games to run on PC would be difficult.

Details of 2.5 Million Xbox and PlayStation Gamers Leaked by Hackers

The personal account information of millions of Xbox and PlayStation users has been compromised. Two popular gaming forums have been hacked, and the account data for 2.5 million users has been released. According to security expert, Troy Hunt’s Have I Been Pwned data tracking website, the Xbox360 and PSP ISOs were hacked back in September of 2015. Even though this incident happened nearly two years ago, it is just now coming to light. The data is composed of email addresses, account passwords, and IP addresses. Even if users didn’t have any of their financial data stored on the sites, the information could still be used to log into other sites if they used the same password on them. “Often people using seemingly low-security websites don’t enforce good password security because it’s not a financial target,” said IT Security Specialist at ESET, Mark James. “but all data has a value and will be reused for other purposes. Every website should be treated as unique and require different passwords with a mix of usernames if possible.” “Breach after breach has shown that using the same username and password for multiple sites is a bad idea,” READ FULL STORY AT GEEK!
