Here are the free games you’ll get on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in March

We’ve covered Microsoft’s Games with Gold every month since the program made its debut on the Xbox One last June. Some offerings have impressed us more than others, but I think it’s fair to say that the selection in March is the best yet. More →

Rock Band is reportedly being revived on PS4 and Xbox One

Rock Band is reportedly being revived on PS4 and Xbox One

One of the biggest crossover hits in the history of multiplayer gaming vanished off the face of the Earth not with a bang, but with a whimper. Rock Band 3, the final game in the main Rock Band series as of now, launched on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii in 2010 to relatively disappointing sales. Consumers just weren’t as interested in huge plastic peripherals as they had been in years past.

Xbox One March Update 2015

Xbox One March update finally brings a simple feature you’ve been waiting for

Xbox One March update finally brings a simple feature you’ve been waiting for

The new generation of consoles can stream high-definition gameplay straight to Twitch, download huge games while asleep, open up the possibility of gaming over the cloud… but one of them still can’t take screenshots. Ever since launch, Xbox One owners have had the ability to record gameplay footage on their consoles, but they haven’t been able to capture single frames.

That’s finally going to change next month. More →

PS4 vs. Xbox One Sales

PS4 expected to continue crushing the Xbox One through 2019

There are plenty of great reasons to buy an Xbox One. I still stand by my assessment at the end of 2014 in which I decided that the Xbox One has evolved into a better console than the PlayStation 4 in many regards, but unsurprisingly, the market isn’t showing a very strong reaction to my articles.

PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. Wii U: Lifetime console sales

PS4 vs. Xbox One vs. Wii U: Lifetime console sales

The next-generation video game console war is no longer the next-generation video game console war — it’s now the current-generation video game console war. Each of the three major gaming box makers has now had its new console on sale for more than a year, and it has been quite a roller coaster ride to say the least. Nintendo came up very short in gamers’ eyes when it comes to the new Wii U. Yes, there are definitely some great titles for the console and many more on the way, but gamers didn’t see enough new features on the box to warrant an upgrade from the wildly successful Wii.

Where Sony and Microsoft are concerned, Sony took an early lead when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both launched in November 2013, and the company never looked back.

But how do lifetime sales stack up now? More →

The Xbox One’s huge Christmas victory was sadly short lived

Microsoft’s herculean efforts over the holidays were enough to temporarily push the Xbox One to the top of the charts, but now that the dust has settled, the equilibrium seems to be shifting back in Sony’s direction. Following the release of The NPD Group’s latest report, SCEA informed the press that the PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in January. More →

And although there haven’t been any recent AAA releases that have made use of the Kinect, Microsoft is going to try to tempt consumers into picking up a bundle with the camera starting this weekend with a $50 discount.

Netflix predicts that the next PS4 and Xbox One models will support 4K

The new console generation is barely a year old, but it’s already time to start considering how Sony and Microsoft are going to refresh the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One in the coming months. As in previous generations, we should expect to see some slimmer, sleeker models with improved functionality, but what will they do that our current models don’t? More →

Yet another way our smartphones are hurting us

Yet another way our smartphones are hurting us

More and more studies are looking into the potentially hazardous side effects of screen use on youngsters, from young children — who shouldn’t be given a tablet or smartphone for distraction purposes — to teenagers, who might develop certain sleeping disorders from too much smartphone, tablet, TV or console access.

A new study published in the BMJ Open journal now reveals that scientists have found out that the more hours teenagers spend looking at a device during the day, the less they sleep, and the longer it takes them to fall asleep. More →
