Microsoft has been the king of aggressive bundles this console generation. Gamers have had countless opportunities to pick up an Xbox One and get a newly released game for free, but the latest bundle brings something new to the table.

If you were paying attention during E3 2015, you might remember Microsoft announcing the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller. With this new bundle, not only will you get the Elite Controller, you’ll also get a matte-finished Xbox One console with a new 1TB Solid State Hybrid Drive, giving you a slight performance edge over everyone who bought the first 1TB bundle.

It has some kinks to work out, but development appears to be progressing as fast as we could hope from a Final Fantasy title. On Monday, Square Enix helped ease the pain of the long wait with a new gameplay video starring the game’s iconic car.

Video reveals how claw machines are rigged to steal your money

Video reveals how claw machines are rigged to steal your money

Most people, I think it’s fair to say, have something of a love/hate relationship with claw machines. Typically overflowing with plush stuffed animals and even some nifty gadgets from time to time, mastering a claw machine seems easy but, more often than not, leads to endless frustration.

Now you might know someone who claims to be a claw machine master. Perhaps you even fancy yourself something of a claw machine sensei. Alas, skill has a lot less to do with successfully landing that stuffed animal than you think.

In short, claw machines are rigged.

After $2.5 billion buyout, Minecraft creator has never felt more isolated

After $2.5 billion buyout, Minecraft creator has never felt more isolated

For many developers, the allure of creating a hit application and raking in lots of money is enough to justify long hours and months, if not years, of thankless work spent hunched over a computer and tinkering with code. And while some developers may not be interested in being bought out by a larger corporation (read: Mark Zuckerberg), for others, the money, which can be life-changing, is simply too good to pass up.

While one might easily assume that developers who cash out for untold millions are just as happy living the good life as they are coding away at a 9-5, that’s not always the case.

Mortal Kombat X, the tenth installment of the wildly successful video game franchise, has been well-received by both critics and gamers since hitting store shelves this past April.

How I got to play tennis with (a virtual reality) Maria Sharapova

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play tennis with international star Maria Sharapova, a three-time Grand Slam title holder? Well, if you did, you probably did not expect your U.S. Open tennis superstar dreams to be realized while standing in the center of a beige-colored room, with a black stick in hand, and a virtual reality headset covering your face. Where are the fans cheering you on as you (attempt to) volley back Sharapova’s 100 mile-per-hour serve, you may ask? Well, instead of the throngs that usually gather at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, there were a few technicians and public relations people watching you while standing in a semi-circle around the perimeter of the room.
