    • Microsoft Studios has acquired both Obsidian Entertainment and inXile Entertainment.

The original Crackdown is free in the Microsoft Store until November 30. Quote paraphrased is ‘that if you are on 1st generation Xbox One, PC or Xbox One X your destruction experience will be the same thanks to the cloud
    • #GiveWithXbox The holiday season is a time of giving and we believe the gaming community loves to give back. For every social photo post about what gaming together means and tagged with #GiveWithXbox  Xbox will donate $5 USD of Xbox products, up to $1M, split among Child’s Play, Gamers Outreach, SpecialEffect, and Operation Supply Drop. Xbox is excited to team up with these four charities who help bring gaming to everyone.

Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy X-2, and Final Fantasy XII will all come to Xbox One sometime in 2019.
