You can actually get a brand new Xbox One with two free games for $299

Remember when the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 first launched? PS4 took a huge early lead in the sales race and Microsoft’s latest Xbox console hasn’t been able to catch up. Many people attribute the Xbox One’s slow start to two main things: a series of PR mistakes and a price point that was way too high. Well, the Xbox One’s days of being “the expensive console” are long gone, and right now you can buy a brand new console starting at just $299… and that includes two free games! More →

PS4 Xbox One Cross-Platform Play

Sony responds to Microsoft’s invitation for cross-network play between PS4 and Xbox One

Sony responds to Microsoft’s invitation for cross-network play between PS4 and Xbox One

Earlier this week, ID@Xbox director Chris Charla seemed to imply in a post on the Xbox Wire that Microsoft would be willing to link up with Sony in order to allow for cross-network play between Xbox Live and PSN players. Of course, Charla didn’t actually mention the PlayStation 4 by name, so it only makes sense that Sony’s response would be equally cryptic.

Quantum Break Preview

‘Quantum Break’ could be the future of crossover entertainment

‘Quantum Break’ could be the future of crossover entertainment

By on March 4, 2016 at 3:14 PM.

From the moment I laid eyes on Quantum Break, I wasn’t sure what to think about it. I knew that its creators had a great pedigree, but I couldn’t fathom how Remedy Entertainment was going to overcome to countless issues that other equally ambitious teams have tried and failed to work through in the past.

Many of the greatest games of recent years have been laser-focused. That focus may have been on story, on gameplay, on visuals or something else entirely, but they were focused. I think back to the brilliant puzzles of Portal, the awe-inspiring boss battles in Shadow of the Colossus and the joy of racing through the world of Forza Horizon 2.

What’s crazy about Quantum Break is that it isn’t doing just one thing really well. It’s a full-fledged, live-action show, an engaging third-person shooter and an engrossing drama all at once. And I think it might actually work.

Xbox One hardware upgrades could extend the life of Microsoft’s console

For decades, the video game console has been a transient purchase. From the moment you set up an Atari or an NES or a PlayStation in your living room, you know it’s only a matter of time before the next console makes it irrelevant.

But what if it didn’t have to be that way? More →
