In this video, I take a look at Microsoft's failed attempt to enter the retro console market with Game Room on the Xbox 360. No, their console app didn't beat the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console or even Playstation 3's Play Station Home, but it did have some cool features. I examine their Krome Studios developed virtual arcade service, which offered Atari games, Intellevision games, Konami arcade games and other classics on the Xbox 360. Overall, it's an interesting video that covers a little-known part of Microsoft's history.
