Xbox One keyboard support is very close, mouse a bit later

Xbox One keyboard support is very close, mouse a bit later

It is a revelation that will most likely be met with both anticipation and dread, depending on which gaming side you're camping on. Playing with a keyboard and a mouse is coming really, really soon for the Xbox One. For PC gamers more used to those input controls, it is welcome news. For console gamers dreading the feared amalgamation of Microsoft's console and PC gaming worlds, it is yet another omen of that future. Of course for Microsoft, it just means being able to play Windows 10 games on any Microsoft-powered device, which ultimately means more profit for the company.

Pokemon GO, Pokemon GO Plus accessory launch date revealed

Pokemon GO, Pokemon GO Plus accessory launch date revealed

After a long wait at E3 2016, Nintendo finally gave the information that Pokemon fans have probably been waiting for. The Pokemon Go Plus accessory for the game is scheduled to launch late July. Although not explicitly stated, that can only mean that the monster-catching AR game itself will be launching at the same time. Of course, we can hope that it will be earlier, but we'll still take late July as a good sign. That is, if Niantic Labs and The Pokemon Company don't run into showstopping bugs and issues before then.

You can play Titanfall 2 “Beta” sooner than October

The release of Titanfall 2 will take place on the 28th of October, 2016. Before then, the folks at Respawn Entertainment and EA Games are launching the same sort of test they launched before the full drop of the game (the original Titanfall). That is a sort of Beta test, as you might want to call it, more properly termed a "Multiplayer Technical Test." While the final game will have a single-player mode in addition to the multiplayer mode Titanfall is known for, this will be a stress test of sorts - testing out the weight before the weight drops.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on January 24

Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Gears of War 4 Limited Edition lands in October

Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Gears of War 4 Limited Edition is a very long name for what is essentially a wireless controller of your Xbox one that has a Gears of War 4 livery on the outside. The controller looks like it’s covered in old blood with a bit of fresh, bright red blood splattered on it. Microsoft calls it a "gritty, battle-weathered design."

Xbox One S requires a USB adapter to use a Kinect

Xbox One S requires a USB adapter to use a Kinect

At E3 2016, Microsoft revealed the new Xbox One S that represents an incremental step forward for the company's console line, at least while waiting for Project Scorpio to take flesh. If the One S is indeed "the future", it might be a future with very few Kinects. That's because, in the process of shrinking the new console, Microsoft removed a few unnecessary parts, which happens to include the dedicated Kinect connection port. Users will have to ask Microsoft for a free USB adapter if ever they want to use the motion sensor with their newer and smaller console.

iOS 10 jumps on game livestreaming train with ReplayKit

Even before livestreaming news and events became a thing with the likes of Periscope and Meerkat, gamers have already been streaming their adventures and misadventures to a live audience for years.

Trying to make gamers', as well as streaming services', lives a little easier, Apple is providing ReplayKit to put iOS gaming back on the map when it comes to game livestreaming.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has a male Link

With a title that goes "Breath of the Wild", some might easily associate it with the phrase "breath of fresh air." In some cases, the game might indeed offer that, breaking from some of the established conventions and limits of previous Zelda games. Unfortunately, the Wii U title still doesn't break free from one of the things that has had fans and even outsiders debating endlessly. That means this Legend of Zelda still doesn't have a female Link as rumored or, at the very least, even a female protagonist.

Pokemon Sun and Moon details: Battle Royal multiplayer

Today we're having a peek at a few new Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon details, starting with the 4x player multiplayer mode called Battle Royal. This is a new battle format that'll appear for the first time in Pokemon Sun and Moon, including four separate players (2 or 4, no more, no less), all against one another at once. You'll need to strategize to the max in this mode - it's an all-out struggle, and you don't want to be caught battling three trainers at once.

Apple TV courts gamers with 4 controller support and no Siri Remote limit

With E3 2016 fighting for attention with Apple's WWDC this week, it only seems right that the Apple TV should get a gaming upgrade. The set-top box has always quietly been a gaming platform, but with the arrival of the next big tvOS update it'll get a lot more serious about that, in addition to cutting out some of the more frustrating limitations for game developers.

Xbox Design Lab offers customized Xbox Wireless Controllers

Microsoft earlier revealed the smaller but also better Xbox One S, which came with a new and improved Xbox Wireless Controller. While most of the attention was naturally lavished on the console, the controller is far from being a mere accessory. That's because Microsoft now offers a way to make that controller truly yours. Taking a page out of the Moto Maker's book, Microsoft is opening the Xbox Design Lab, where buyers can customize almost every aspect of the controller they will be buying.
