    The Xbox One doesn't have a lot of games in its official library yet (it launched just two months ago, after all) but this week it was revealed that a third party website has been launched which allows owners of Microsoft's console access to many more games.

    The site is called xboxie and while it was not made by Microsoft, it seems to have the unofficial stamp of approval from Larry "Major Nelson" hryb, the director of Xbox Live programming.
    The site uses the Xbox One's version of Internet Explorer to offer a number of free HTML5-based games that can be played with the console's controller. While technically any HTML5 web game could be played on the Xbox One, nearly all of them are optimzed for a keyboard and mouse setup. The site's creators state, "So we at Xboxie search and test each game to make sure it runs smooth and plays well on a controller. So to sum up, if it's on Xboxie then you can play it on your Xbox One."
    The collection of games, as you might expect, is mostly of casual titles but there are a few familiar names such as Pac Man, Cut The Rope and Bejeweled. The Xboxie team has pledged to reach out to other game developers so that more web-based games can support the Xbox One via IE.

    My thoughts:
    I actually checked this site out guys and it is actually really fun haha. Check it out guys.
