Microsoft has been working on updating the cult classic, original Xbox game Phantom Dust for the Xbox One. In a surprise move, Xbox leadership came out yesterday and said the game is not only releasing today (Tuesday, May 16th) but it would be free and a Play Anywhere title as well. For those unfamiliar with the game, Microsoft also released a video to bring people up to speed on the title:
This is great fan service. Phantom Dust is a title only a small percentage of people are familiar with and yet, the Xbox team has brought the title forward for fans and is offering it for free. We love to see this kind of delivery for fans and we hope Microsoft (and Sony/Nintendo) do things like this more often.
