“Console Wars” movie to chronicle Sega vs. Nintendo era

The current generation of young gamers have grown up entrenched in the PlayStation vs. Xbox so-called console wars, something that is fun from a select standpoint and gives companies a solid way to market their own wares.

Watch Dogs pre-order cancellation a simple error: no need to freak

This morning a report was delivered about order cancellations for the game Watch Dogs, a title set to be delivered some time in early 2014.

Xbox One laptop mod made real

Quick to the hacking switch this week is James “DarkUncle” Terry with an Xbox One laptop modified unit. This machine works with a relatively large bulk, but a massive amount of ability to boot, of course, as it’s working with the same capabilities as the original. Here the machine works with its own display that folds up, Kinect on the side, and the same beastly power brick. The standard Xbox One Wireless Controller works just fine, as well.
