Rare Replay Could Potentially Add More Games Beyond The Initial 30

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing back when Microsoft announced Rare Replay for the Xbox One. Next week gamers are going to be able to buy a collection of 30 games for just $30, in what is without question one of the best deals ever. However, there is still some big Rare games that are not included in the package and apparently there were some games the devs wanted on there that didn’t make it.

Conker Rare Replay

Rare’s James Thomas held a Twitch livestream where he claimed that getting the amount of games down to 30 was very difficult. Here’s a snippet of what he said:

“There is a wealth of titles that we could dip into; a huge heritage beyond the 30 that we chose,” Thomas said. “But that’s what made choosing the 30 so hard in the first place. We had to put aside preferences. We hope we’ve done [that], but you never know, there could be space for more.”

This sounds to me that some potential DLC could be coming at some point down the line. One game that a lot of people want on there is Goldeneye 007, though the reason that one didn’t make it is probably due to the rights being held by several different companies. I think it would be cool of they added the remake of Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Conker: Live & Reloaded to the mix.

The Massive File Size Of Rare Replay Has Been Revealed

During Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference they announced a new game called Rare Replay, which collects 30 games developed by Rare with a ridiculously cheap price tag of $30. However, with there being 30 games on this thing people were wondering just how much space it all would be taking up on their already overflowing Xbox Ones.

Well, the file size for the entire package has been revealed and it is massive. If you were to download every game in the package it would take up over 50 GB of space on your hard drive, though luckily you don’t have to download it all at once. You will need to download the games that were not available digitally on Xbox 360 on their own, which will equal to just over 11 GB. However, the rest of the game’s will simply be added to your download queue and you can initiate them whenever you’re ready for them.

Rare Replay is launching exclusively for the Xbox One on August 4th.

Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download the game completely free when it launches on July 28th, though if not you’ll still be able to take part in a seven-day free trial.

 

Burnout Paradise Could Be Crashing On Xbox One Via Backwards Compatibility

The Xbox One is set to be adding dozens of Xbox 360 games to its library by the end of the year via backwards compatibility, and now another big hitter is lining up to join the fray.

According to Criterion Games, they are in discussions with Microsoft to bring Burnout Paradise to the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Nothing is confirmed yet, but they claimed that they will have more news soon via twitter.

As for me, I absolutely loved Burnout Paradise back when it launched in 2008. Even though I’m not a hardcore racing fan, that game had an awesome open world to explore with tons of things to do and mayhem to cause. Gonna be honest, though, this news just makes me crave another entry in the series even more.

Looks Like ‘ZombiU’ Is Headed For Other Consoles As ‘Zombi’

Back when the Wii U released in 2012 it launched with an interesting game called ZombiU. Here we have a mature-rated zombie game coming straight out of the gate with the typically family-friendly Nintendo console, and it actually wasn’t half bad.

However, due to both the Wii U’s low install base and the fact that it wasn’t exactly the type of game to resonate with that said low install base spelled doom for the game. Low sales lead to the planned sequel being axed, and the game was more or less forgotten after a few months.

Still, there is hope for the game as previous rumors suggesting that the game could be coming to other consoles appear to be true. A rating on the Australian classification board for a game called Zombi has popped up, and it’s ratings are identical to ZombiU. The game is currently only listed for Xbox One, but this could very much end up being a multiplatform deal.

Check out the image of Zombi‘s rating in Australia below.
