If you are not already aware, you CAN add votes to games added to the Xbox website. The more votes a game has, the more likely Xbox is to make that game be backward compatbile. Speaking of backwards compatbile. A lot of people are still asking about this. Lets go over this quickly, okay?
As of right now, Xbox is making it so that 360 games can be played on Xbox One. As of right now there ARE plans to make Xbox Original games backward compat, but as of right now there is no date. Xbox did mention something at E3 in 2017, but they did not give an exact date, they just said it would be coming soon.
Backward Compatible Games gives you the ability to play a list of games that Xbox has that are for the 360 on your Xbox One.
The Backward Compatible Games list can be found here... Read More
Ill be the first one to admit I love Ubi. Over the years they have become one of my favorite gaming companies. I own and love:
ALL the old Rainbow Six games for Xbox Original (ALL OF THEM!)
ALL the old Splinter Cell games for Xbox Original
Brothers in Arms for Xbox Original
Almost ALL the Assassins Creeds for 360
The Crew – and soon to be The Crew 2 in 2018
ALL the GR and RS games for 360
Tetris (don’t judge I love that game!)
But, something sort of odd has been happening these past few months and enough is enough!
Let me first start off by saying: I have no interest in PVP. In fact? I could care less about PVP. But what I do care about are video games and the people, such as yourself, playing them and expecting certain things.
Since the first announcement of Tom Clancy’... Read More

Since I started really building up Gamers Elite and writing on the website every day 3-7 times a day, since May I have been really trying to get more people to the site. With the amount of content I write on Gamers Elite, word of mouth, and promotion, I am starting to actually see a trickling of average views per post. I really appreciate any social shares I can get! It doesn’t matter if its Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. If you share the website I would greatly appreciate it!
Of course there are other “news” sites like IGN and GameSpot – but these are run by big conglomerates. I’m just a little guy (girl) trying to find his (her) way. I do notice, however, that there are certain instances when I have the dibs on info sooner than anyone else... Read More
Every week Forza Motorsport 7 is letting you get a sneak peek at the cars that will be available in Forza Motorsport 7. There are OVER 700 cars that will be in the game so needless to say these lists are quite long.
If you don’t see the car you like, just hold on! The game is not coming out until 9/29 so we still have a few car lists that are going to be coming out.
Also, just because they don’t have your car you love, doesn’t mean you can’t find another one you love equally as much!
You can view the other articles (and cars) on Gamers Elite here:

Ubi just announced on their blog that will be allowing people to play For Honor for free as a trial event from August 10th until August 13th. So if you didn’t play the beta or you have not purchased the game yet AND you play on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PC – this is your chance to get a taste of the game. The For Honor trial will give you the ability to play the game for as long as you want, as long as its between those 3 days.
This isn’t just any trial though you guys. You get to really immerse yourself in the game. Ubi is allowing you to play the full campaign, you can play multiplayer – all maps and modes and you have 14 different characters to choose from.
This trial is also different from others because any progress you make in the trial will carry over to the full game, if you choo... Read More
There are a lot of series titles out there that are known for having a specific character. Most of the time when you purchase these titles you are doing so because they are a character you either love or love to hate – this could be for the entire game or part of it even. A few games that I can think of off the top of my head are;
Super Mario Brothers – Mario!
Sonic The Hedgehog – Sonic or Tales
Witcher – Geralt of Rivia
Just Cause – Rico Rodriguez
Another character and game is Nathan Drake from Uncharted. From day 1 with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune on November 19, 2007 you have always been able to play Nathan. Its one of the reasons the game is so popular. Well, now Uncharted: The Lost Legacy will be released in just a few weeks and Nathan Drake is nowhere to be found in the game... Read More
Titanfall and Titanfall 2 are 2 very popular games. Even years after the first one got released people were still playing the original because its fun, fast paced, and it honestly never gets old. Titanfall 2 was released on October 28, 2016 and people are also still playing the heck out of this game. One of the 2 biggest reasons why; its VERY fun and Respawn is still keeping up with the game. They are constantly adding new mechs, they are always doing special events like double XP, and its continually updated to make sure the game(s) run smooth.
If you have and love the TF series, you definitely need to check out a spin off from Respawn called Titanfall Assault. This will, as I understand it, only be available on IOS... Read More
I just saw yet another post by a person that has been misinformed so I thought I would send out a quick note. Don’t forget guys, unlike some of the sites are saying, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered standalone edition DID indeed get released for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Is it an unfair release? Of course haha. I bought the Deluxe Edition of IW just to get the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered edition. And then they go and release it as a standalone when they said they never would!
Nonetheless, if you were one of many people that did not want to buy IW or were holding out for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered as a standalone – it is available. Its not as much as a brand new game either – under $40.
