Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

It’s been a relatively slow start for the Xbox One in 2015, with hardly any exclusives to speak of save for Screamride and Ori and the Blind Forest. That’s not to say that the PS4 has been outpacing Microsoft’s console by much, but if the Xbox One is going to stand a chance of taking the lead this year, it’s going to need to have a big E3.

According to Phil Spencer, that’s exactly what Microsoft has in store. More →

Project Cars Release Date

The most gorgeous racing game we’ve ever seen is finally launching on May 7th

The most gorgeous racing game we’ve ever seen is finally launching on May 7th

By on April 17, 2015 at 12:45 PM.

Save for Forza Horizon 2, my personal game of the year in 2014, I have been sorely disappointed by the racing game lineup of the new generation. Need for Speed: Rivals felt like a step back after the incredible Most Wanted, Driveclub didn’t live up to the lofty expectations, and The Crew was all but broken at launch.

Maybe the endlessly delayed Project CARS, which has finally gone gold, will put the genre back on track.

Xbox One Energy Issue

Microsoft has a plan to stop the Xbox One from blowing up your monthly electric bill

Not long ago, the Natural Resources Defense Council raised a stink about Microsoft’s failure to inform Xbox One owners about how much energy their consoles were consuming while the “Instant-on” mode was enabled. According to the council’s research, this standby mode was adding a collective $250 million to Xbox One owners’ energy bills every year. More →

One of the biggest Xbox One exclusives of the year was just delayed to 2016

No, it wasn’t Halo 5: Guardians. You can exhale.

On Thursday, Microsoft announced that Quantum Break, the time traveling action adventure game from Remedy Entertainment, would no longer be launching in 2015. This wasn’t the first major delay of the year, but for Xbox One fans, it’s certainly going to be one of the most disappointing. More →

Xbox One Standby Mode

The Xbox One might be costing us millions of dollars a year – here are the details

The Xbox One might be costing us millions of dollars a year – here are the details

If you’re like me, then you appreciate the convenience of having a standby mode on your new consoles. It means you’ll never be more than a few seconds away from jumping back into Halo 5 or Forza Horizon 2. In fact, with the Xbox One, it’s as simple as saying the phrase “Xbox on”… but there is a downside.

Last week, Noah Horowitz of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) published a piece on his blog which claims that Microsoft is costing Xbox One owners hundreds of millions of dollars every year by leaving the Instant-On power mode as the default power mode out of the box. More →
