Disney Infinity servers close in March 2017, PC & mobile versions unplayable in September

Back in May, Disney announced that it was ending production of its expansive Disney Infinity game series as it exited game publishing entirely. Now the company has detailed the shut down process for the game's online services, and simply put, it's a bit messy.

Gears of War 4 will feature PC-only enhancements

Gears of War 4 will feature PC-only enhancements

Back when Microsoft announced that Gears of War 4 would be coming to PC, we're guessing more than a few gamers assumed it would be a direct port of the Xbox One version. While it may be a little pessimistic to assume that right off the bat, it also wouldn't be entirely unfounded given Microsoft's hot and cold history with PC gamers. As it turns out, however, it looks like PC players will have a number of enhancements at their disposal when the game launches in October.

Xbox One, Surface Pro 4 get summer discounts pre-Anniversary update

Summer is here, at least for those in the US, so naturally it's an opportune time to get some sales rolling. It isn't surprising to see Microsoft slash the price of its Xbox One flagship console, though it is somewhat curious that it is also offering a discount for the Surface Pro 4 as well. But with a new $249 price tag and just days before August 2nd, the Xbox One has just stolen the Xbox One S' thunder to become the cheapest Xbox console. At least for now.
