Why? Or rather, Wii. Wii U to be exact.
When it comes to game console aesthetics, you’d think Nintendo would be on top of their game, but one major design oversight has left my Wii U with a (mostly) permanent tumor.
Xbox announced yesterday that it will be releasing a Netflix style service for games. The program known as Xbox Game Pass will allow subscribers to download direct to their console and play any of the 100 games on the list. The list will also include backwards compatible 360 games as well.
