Why Xbox One could win the holiday gaming war

Why Xbox One could win the holiday gaming war

As a longtime gamer, I’ve seen the ups and downs that befall even the greatest of video game companies. I’ve watched companies like SEGA and Nintendo rise and fall, I’ve watched Sony take a few missteps, and I’ve watched Microsoft become an important player in today’s marketplace. At the risk of dating myself, I even remember the good ol’ days of Atari rising and falling and an odd device named the 3DO failing to captivate gamers (well, besides me, who still finds time to play it from time to time).

PS4 20th Anniversary Edition goes original PlayStation grey

It's the PlayStation's 20th anniversary, and what better way for Sony to celebrate than a limited-edition PS4 finished in the "Original Grey" of the very first console. Going up for sale in very limited numbers - just 12,300 worldwide, a nod to the original PlayStation's launch date - the PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition has a matching grey controller and camera; Sony has been so completist in its color treatment that all the cables and other accessories in the box match, too.

Assassin’s Creed: Victory – 2015’s AC heads to London

Victorian Era London has been leaked as the next big location for Ubisoft's yearly Assassin's Creed release. This game will be sent out to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and is currently code-named - or perhaps named in the end - Assassin's Creed Victory. Assassin's Creed Unity was originally code-named Unity, so we could very well see the same sort of situation take hold here. Screenshots of this game have leaked alongside the name and location, showing how far along this game is in development - or at least in presentation.

Steam Broadcasting revealed as Twitch alternative

The biggest name in live video game streaming today is Twitch - bar none. That's no reason why Steam, the biggest name in PC game sales and hosting, can't create a competitor. That's exactly what they're doing right this minute with Steam Broadcasting, coming your way in Beta form as early as this afternoon. Steam Broadcasting appears, for now, to be sort of the opposite model Twitch is running. You'll have only to find a friend, click the "Watch Game" button, and wait to be let in.

It's almost time - Kingdom Hearts 3 is nearly upon us. The co-director and game designer of both Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5 HD remasters AND Kingdom Hearts 3 Tai Yasue has spoken on the future.

Yasue suggested this week that while he couldn't "go into specifics," that since the release of Kingdom Hearts 2 was released 9 years ago, and Disney acquired both Lucasfilm and Marvel Comics, "nothing's off limits."

Xbox One won the Black Friday battle says research

Microsoft's Xbox One may be lagging behind the PlayStation 4 when it comes to hitting sales milestones, but the console proved to be the winner when it came to Black Friday demand, with one analysis firm declaring it the clear leader in retail interest. InfoScout crunched the sales numbers on over 180,000 receipts from US shoppers on Friday, November 31, and found that more than half of all consoles bought were the Xbox One.

GTA IV gets RoboCop mod packing ED-209

One of my favorite movies from the 80s was the original RoboCop film. The first couple of movies in the franchise were cool and then they were too cheesy for me to stomach. If you are a fan of those early RoboCop films and you like to play Grand Theft Auto IV, this mod will get you excited. GTA IV was a new RoboCop mod that puts ED-209 in the mix.
