Podcast Unlocked Episode 200

Episode 200 finally happened, and it happened live with 450 IGN fans in San Francisco. It was an incredible event where we celebrated the history of Xbox, sharing our favorite original Xbox and 360 games as well as those of the fans in attendance. We even snuck in a teaser for a very special episode 201! We hope you enjoy listening if you couldn't make it, or reliving it again if you did!

Podcast Unlocked at E3 2015: Phil Spencer Interview

In the wake of Microsoft's fantastic E3, we sat down with Head of Xbox Phil Spencer to discuss everything from backwards compatibility to Kinect, Xbox Live Arcade, winning the console "war," and much more. NOTE: this interview was recorded the day before Summer Spotlight was announced, so when you hear Phil play coy with our question about whether or not he'd ever bring XBLA back, now you know why. :-)
