Naturally, this has not sat well with many Xbox users, so Microsoft has stepped forward to clarify the situation.

The Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing series served as enjoyable racing games that would distract you long enough if you ever got sick of playing Mario Kart. Unfortunately, that's all they can be: a distraction. When you're looking for a great party game to play with your friends, the All-Star Racing games are rarely likely to be brought up. They suffer from slippery controls, questionable game mechanics, and a poor online structure.

Fortunately, SEGA has a chance to make up for all this, as they recently announced a brand new Sonic racing game. The company has confirmed it won't be a sequel to any games they've released, so this is their chance to start over from scratch. But for SEGA to even dream of competing with the big dogs like Mario Kart, there are a few things they'll need to work on.

When Microsoft launched their Xbox Game Pass initiative, the subscription service was originally designed for gamers to access a wide library of older games at a low monthly rate. The variety of available titles is nice, but fans have since spoken out on wanting to play more of the latest blockbusters on the service—and it looks like Xbox is poised to deliver.

Xbox head Phil Spencer has announced a major expansion for the service, revealing that Xbox Game Pass will soon incorporate all Xbox One-exclusive titles and Microsoft Studios games on the day they launch. Read on after the jump for more details!

Back in 2014, Ubisoft decided to release two brand new Assassin's Creed games on the same day. Assassin's Creed Unity was released on the brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems and was widely received as a colossal failure. This overshadowed the release of the other game, Assassin's Creed Rogue, which featured the popular pirate gameplay from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and released on the older Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

If you missed Rogue because it had to live in the shadow of Unity, you're in luck. Ubisoft is remastering the game for PS4 and Xbox One, even though it's only been a little over three years since the original game launched. Head inside for more!
