Outside Xbox - Daily Xbox 360 videos
This week, we saw the face of a new generation: the device that Microsoft hopes will define our entertainment habits for the next 10 years. It looked like a VCR from the future for watching American sports. Although the TV-heavy Xbox One reveal was disappointingly light on games, we did get an eyeful of Call of Duty: Ghosts, the first next-gen Call of Duty. It's to that game and its canine commando Show of the Week turns its attention.
Bungie and Activision have just released a new trailer for Destiny, their ambitious persistent-world sci-fi shooter that is coming to Xbox One. It's a blend of live action and pre-rendered CG, though given the footage we've seen from Xbox One, we wouldn't be surprised if the game itself looks very similar to the CG combat shown here.
Whether your reaction to Microsoft's Xbox One reveal was excitement or white-hot, seething fury, there was a lot to take in. That's why we've taken a moment to dig into a few of the technical details you might have missed over the course of the presentation or that were revealed after the glitzy stage show had ended.
Here's yesterday's Xbox One reveal event reimagined as a horror movie trailer starring Steven Spielberg, the Bing jellyfish, lots of white noise and the creepy little girl from Quantum Break.
Call of Juarez: Gunslinger may be narrated by a guy with less memory than a ZX Spectrum, but a lot of the characters he talks about meeting during his storied bounty hunting career are very real. While their stories might not have included gatling gun boss battles, mine collapses or rooftop train fights, they were still larger than life characters during a colourful and turbulent period of American history. Watch on for a who's who of the legends of the Old West that you'll meet if you pick up the game.
Although we got a good look at the console itself, games were thin on the ground in the Xbox One's TV-centric reveal event, where sports apps, voice control and other multimedia gubbins took centre stage. So was the Xbox One's first outing a success or a sloppy start to a new generation? Watch Outside Xbox react in this post-reveal video.
Microsoft closed out its Xbox One reveal event with the Call of Duty: Ghosts premiere, in which developer Infinity Ward flaunted Call of Duty: Ghosts' new engine and dog with a first proper trailer, gameplay and a few early glimpses of multiplayer. Watch it all below the cut.
Microsoft has confirmed Forza 5 as a launch title for the newly revealed Xbox One. At the Xbox One reveal event, a first look at Forza 5 gave us a pair of gleaming McLaren P1 supercars duelling on the sunny streets of Prague. Watch them go in the trailer after the jump.

Won't you join us?
Resident Evil Revelations HD's The Pool Is Open achievement gets you 5G for taking Jill Valentine for a swim. Easy. Except the swimming pool is full of soupy green water and barnacled monster flesh, and Jill is having none of it. Get that pool sparkling clean with our achievement guide for The Pool is Open.
The end of a generation is nearly here. This evening's Xbox reveal event heralds the beginning of the end like so many angelic trumpeters, or Don't Stop Believing coming on the karaoke playlist. But what a generation it has been. Of that generation's worth of Xbox 360 games, here are 60 in 60 seconds. Can you name them all?

To those fans dismayed by last year's Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil Revelations HD is a must. It's a much more focused outing than its messy predecessor, with just the right mix of icky enemies, creepy atmosphere and melodramatic schlock.

What do Star Trek, The Matrix and Aliens have in common? Enormous fan bases that are hugely invested in their respective universes, for one thing, and also videogames that take the fiction's rulebook and start fiddling with it. Some stomp all over canon more than others, but there are more than enough canonical crimes to go around. Watch on as we read out the charges and dispense justice.
Here's a Batman: Arkham Origins teaser trailer to tell you there's a trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins coming on May 20, which will in turn tell you Batman: Arkham Origins is coming on October 25. Still, you get a sneaky peek at Batman battling Deathstroke in the snow, and who can say fairer than that?
Type "zombie" into the search bar in the Indie Game Marketplace and check out just how many words you can pair with zombie to make a game premise. Zombie Accountant? Zombie Cow Milking? Zombie Outhouse? Zombie Outback. Let's go with that.
The latest Assassin's Creed IV trailer explores what it means to be a swashbuckling assassin in the Golden Age of Piracy. It's mostly about defying imperial tyrants and air assassinations from the ship's rigging, we gather. Watch the new trailer after the cut.
Thanks to some creative merchandising from Valve, the official Portal Cake Mix is a thing that exists. It's a kit that contains not nearly almost everything you need to create the chocolate cherry cake promised the player by GlaDOS in Portal. Join us in the Outside Xbox show kitchen and see how we get on baking the thing.
Metro is the post-apocalyptic survival series for wasteland wanderers who find Fallout not quite bleak enough and insufficiently full of Russian political satire.

No longer a Wii U exclusive, Rayman Legends comes to Xbox 360 as well as the Wii U and PlayStation 3 on August 30. Watch limbless go-getter Rayman and friends dive beneath the waves in underwater level Ocean World in this new gameplay trailer.
Come join the Outside Xbox crime crew as we play Monaco: What's Yours is Mine, an XBLA heist game with eight uniquely skilled characters. We'll be assigning each of you a codename. You're Badshoes. Don't argue.
It's not often you get a free game on XBLA, but you'll find that recent release Crash Course 2 can be downloaded completely gratis. That's because it's funded by a giant in the world of adding flavoured dust to corn tortilla chips, presumably in the hope that the goodwill will convert directly into inter-meal snacking. While we're not going to endorse any one brand of corn chips, even if they happened to be secretly our favourite, we thought we'd play a little split-screen and see how the game stands up.
