A few weeks ago, the environmental group Natural Resources Defense Council was critical of Microsoft and their Xbox One console in how its "Instant On" mode was wasting energy and increasing electric bills of gamers around the world by a collective $250 million.

The Windows 10 Store experience will be less confusing

If there's a single common theme that permeates the upcoming Windows 10 release, it would probably be "unification".

Elite: Dangerous coming to Xbox One and Oculus Rift this summer

One of the best things in gaming, is seeing a successful Kickstarter game hit the market. It's been a long wait, but Elite: Dangerous is finally hitting Xbox One this summer. Elite: Dangerous is part space adventure, part resource management, and part combat simulation (my favorite!). After a down to the wire Kickstarter campaign two years ago, Frontier Developments secured over £1.5 million from crowdsourcing. It's been two and a half years since then, but we're looking forward to enjoying the fruits of their labor.
