After deciding it was silly to include a touchscreen on the gamepad, the original controller was tossed out, and the most recent generation began. "Most recent" as in - there’ve been many, many prototypes, but this one is the closest we’ve gotten to the final product.

Xbox 360 Spring Bundle proves Microsoft isn’t quitting yet

Xbox 360 Spring Bundle proves Microsoft isn’t quitting yet

While generally a sort of fire sale like the one you’re about to see here is something we’d suggest means a stock reduction is in order, Microsoft appears to be playing a different game. Continuing to support the release of games and, indeed, making clear that they’ll be continuing to give games away to Xbox Live members, Microsoft is pushing an Xbox 360 Spring Value Bundle to be released in late March of 2014.

ControllerMAX gaming controller converter Review

ControllerMAX gaming controller converter Review

The device known as ControllerMAX allows you to plug in and use essentially any gaming controller into any console or PC - it’s as simple as that at the baseline. This device is no larger than a USB dongle and just as light - and that’s what you get in the box - simple at the outset. NOTE: The brand formerly known as ChronusMAX has become ControllerMAX in the time it’s taken for us to review this device, believe it or not, so supposing you’re seeing the lead image in this review and are baffled by it, fear not - it’s the same device.

Titanfall Beta open: everyone is free to play

Tonight the decision to stress test Titanfall Beta has been made - codes will not be needed and all players will be able to try the game until the end of the Beta period. At the moment this means users will immediately, if not soon, be able to access Titanfall Beta so that the creators of the game are able to test how much the servers that keep the game active online are able to take.

Titanfall Beta codes use extended: servers down time to thank

Titanfall Beta codes use extended: servers down time to thank

It would appear that the Titanfall servers bug was a big enough issue over the past 24 hours or so to warrant an extension of the Beta time for users in the long run. In other words - if you were bummed that you'd not be getting as much Titanfall Beta time as possible due to the down-time this weekend, have no fear! The Titanfall Beta has been extended "at least a day".

UPDATE: Respawn Entertainment has decided to make this an OPEN Beta!

Titanfall Beta servers down: Microsoft working on fix

This afternoon servers are in short supply for the Titanfall Beta, owing to a bug rather than to a final limitation for the game.

You'll encounter this situation in gameplay when you see the message "no servers found."

UPDATE: With servers back to normal, mostly, Respawn Entertainment decided to make this Closed Beta an Open Beta for everyone starting just one day after launch!
