Microsoft says the Xbox One is ‘doing things that can’t be done’ on the PS4

As we’ve discussed countless times over the course of this console generation, the PlayStation 4 is the clear winner in terms of international sales. Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s stumbles and appealed to a larger audience than it ever had it the past. At last count, Sony had sold over 25 million units… but Microsoft still hasn’t grown concerned. More →

Amazing reaction video: PS4 exclusive ‘Until Dawn’ scares people out of their seats

Amazing reaction video: PS4 exclusive ‘Until Dawn’ scares people out of their seats

I’ve gone back and forth on the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive adventure horror game Until Dawn, but after spending a few hours with a preview code last month, I think I’m more excited than I am skeptical for the retail release. It’s a pitch perfect teen horror story, chock full of all the tropes you’d expect from a summer movie, but it’s genuinely scary as well. More →

Nintendo NX: Here’s what we can expect to see from Nintendo’s next-gen console

Nintendo NX: Here’s what we can expect to see from Nintendo’s next-gen console

No one would blame you if you (incorrectly) assumed that the Wii U would be Nintendo’s last traditional home console. After gambling on the Wii, Nintendo decided to take another huge risk by releasing a majorly underpowered console with a controller as large as an iPad, but this time it didn’t pay off.

Third party developers vanished, first party developers ran out of gimmicks and everyone moved on to the PS4 and Xbox One. But it’s not the end of the road for Nintendo. A new console is coming, but how will it compare to the Wii U?

Super Mario Maker: The Wii U’s last chance to make a splash in 2015

Super Mario Maker: The Wii U’s last chance to make a splash in 2015

Once again, it’s been an incredibly tough year for the Wii U. Sales are still failing to meet expectations, the first-party lineup is remarkably small and third parties have all but given up on the console. There’s no point in sugarcoating it, but that doesn’t mean Wii U owners don’t have anything to look forward to for the rest of the year. More →

Xbox One: How to transfer your old Xbox 360 save files to the new console

Xbox One: How to transfer your old Xbox 360 save files to the new console

If there’s one way the Xbox One is much better than the PlayStation 4 – at least right now – it’s that Microsoft announced backwards compatibility for previous-generation games. That means more Xbox 360 games will be playable on the Xbox One in the future, which should convince some longtime Xbox 360 gamers to upgrade. But that also means that moving from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One will involve one crucial step: backing up your old saved games to move them to the new console. More →

Watch: A bike crash in GTA V sets off the most hilarious 5-minute explosion in gaming history

It’s a good thing real humans don’t drive like the humans in Grand Theft Auto V, because otherwise our entire species would be extinct within a week. If you need more proof of this, look no further than a new video posted by YouTube user Hoosker Don’t that shows how a simple motorcycle crash can set off a chain reaction of crashes and explosions the likes of which we’ve thankfully never seen in real life.

Rare Replay review: The future of old school gaming

When I was young, I didn’t pay attention to the names of the developers on the boxes of my favorite games. I just loved playing good games. It would be years before I took an interest in the industry as a whole, but looking back, nearly every game I played in my formative years had the same name on the box: Rare. More →

3 huge ways the Xbox One just showed up the PS4

By on August 4, 2015 at 1:26 PM.

When Microsoft announced backward compatibility for the Xbox One at E3 2015, I began to see the first signs of the tide shifting in Microsoft’s favor. After flubbing the reveal of its new-gen console, Microsoft has been doing everything in its power to restore the faith of its fans, from bringing in Phil Spencer as Xbox head to launching an endless stream of affordable bundles.

Still, the sales haven’t quite caught up with the PlayStation 4, but when Sony decided to skip Gamescom 2015, Microsoft knew it had a golden opportunity to gain some ground.
