Titanfall Xbox 360 Release Date

Titanfall for the Xbox 360 has been delayed until next month

Titanfall for the Xbox 360 has been delayed until next month

Being stuck in the last generation of consoles doesn’t mean you’ll have to miss out on one of the biggest games of 2014, but it does mean you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to get your hands on it. EA announced on Thursday that the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall has been pushed back to April 8th in the United States and April 11th in Europe. Bluepoint Games, the developer of the last-gen version, was originally planning to have Titanfall ready for a March 25th release, but Bluepoint and EA “see a few things that can be made even better,” so the game has been delayed. EA is promising the full Titanfall experience on the Xbox 360 — it’ll be a few more weeks before we can see the game in action and decide for ourselves.

South Park: The Stick of Truth Review

Review: ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ for PlayStation 3

Review: ‘South Park: The Stick of Truth’ for PlayStation 3

South Park: The Stick of Truth is, among other things, the best episode of South Park I’ve seen in years. Matt Stone and Trey Parker went as hands-on with this project as they have with anything outside of the actual cartoon, and it shows. It’s belligerent, horrific, hysterical and it feels fresh. But woven between the hysteria, there’s a game that you’re going to have to play. So is that game any good? More →

Video: Man runs back into burning home after escaping… to save his Xbox

Heroes are a rare breed, but they do exist. Every so often, we see a news story that reminds us there are still people out there who will rise to the occasion and summon the courage to help their fellow man despite imminent danger. Against all odds, they stare death in the face and fight through the fear. Fueled by adrenaline and a willingness to go above and beyond in order to help those in peril, only a select few will put themselves in harm’s way for the sake of others. The latest tale of an ordinary person becoming a hero comes from Kansas, where a man rushed back into his burning home to save the love of his life… his Xbox.

After 32 months at the top, Xbox 360 dethroned by PlayStation 3

There has been a changing of the guard in the U.S. video game console market and for Microsoft, it couldn’t have come at a worse time. With the next console generation right around the corner and several analysts predicting Sony’s PlayStation 4 will have the upper hand this time around, Microsoft’s run at the top in the U.S. market has come to an end prematurely. The company’s current-generation Xbox 360 console had been the top-selling home video game console in America for 32 consecutive months according to market research firm NPD Group, but that unbelievable streak came screeching to a halt in September as the PS3 pulled ahead.

Microsoft wants your help to hunt down Xbox trolls

If you build it, they will troll. The only things certain in life are death, taxes and the fact that trolls will eventually find their way to every public forum on the Internet. Xbox Live in particular is known for its special brand of trolls that look to disrupt other gamers and spoil their fun, but Microsoft is taking new steps in its effort to rid its online video game community of as many trolls as possible. At the start of the month, Microsoft announced the beta launch of a new system “Xbox Enforcement United,” which allows gamers to flag trolls as inappropriate and alert Microsoft’s Xbox Live Policy and Enforcement Team.

Despite upcoming Xbox One launch, Microsoft aims to sell 25 million more Xbox 360s

Despite upcoming Xbox One launch, Microsoft aims to sell 25 million more Xbox 360s

Microsoft’s newly unveiled Xbox One has gamers excited despite some huge question marks, but Microsoft thinks its current-generation Xbox 360 still has legs. Speaking with Official Xbox Magazine, Microsoft’s senior vice president of Interactive Entertainment Business Yusuf Mehdi said that the company is looking to sell 25 million more Xbox 360 consoled over the next five years. The Xbox 360 recently registered its 28th consecutive month as top-selling console, but sales of the 8-year-old console have slowed significantly in recent quarters. Inevitable price cuts may help Microsoft on its mission, but the company also has a few tricks up its sleeve that will be announced during the annual E3 video game conference next month.
