Halo 5 comes with 9GB day 1 patch

There's no doubt that Halo 5 is one of the most highly-anticipated titles of the year. If you're excited about picking it up, popping in the disc, and playing straightaway, though, you're in for a little disappointment. As is the trend these days, Halo 5 is getting a day 1 patch, and it's a doosey: according to 343 Studio's Josh Holmes, you can expect a 9GB download once the game drops.

Cortana on Xbox One unlocked by special key combo

Cortana on Xbox One unlocked by special key combo

Microsoft has more or less dashed hopes that Cortana will be coming to the Xbox One like an early Christmas gift this November, revealing that Microsoft's AI helper won't be fully activated until early next year. Of course, early testers will be able to get an appetizer before everyone else but, at least for now, even they are locked out of the experience. At least officially. Unofficially, there apparently is a way to force Cortana to appear on the New Xbox One Experience preview, thanks to a few presses of a controller button.

Star Wars Battlefront beta extended to October 13

Good news for Star Wars fans who didn't have the chance to play the Star Wars: Battlefront beta — or those who simply didn't get enough play time — over the weekend, as EA has decided to extend the testing period to Tuesday, October 13th. It seems all platforms the beta is available on, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, have been experiencing some server problems over the weekend, so EA and Battlefront developer DICE are looking to conduct some additional infrastructure tests before the game's debut on November 17th.

Most PC gamers know that there are some game types that are easier to play using the mouse and keyboard and there are others that are better played with a game controller.

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Thursday the 8th of October, 2015, the Star Wars Battlefront BETA began opening its doors to the public. This open invitation will be brought to users on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, including several modes of play and environments. This BETA test will be sent out for two reasons. The first is to test the servers - any game that's based primarily in an online environment such as this needs time to make certain it'll be able to be handled at scale. The second reason this BETA exists is that the game itself must be tested for flaws by a large number of users - tiny flaws like bonus icons disappearing when you throw a thermal detonator - that's what they'll looking for.

After a brief teaser period Ubisoft has revealed the next Far Cry series franchise jump-off point: Far Cry Primal.

Xbox One to bring button remapping to standard controller too

When Microsoft announced the new Xbox One Elite controller back at E3, its biggest feature was just how customizable it is; not just with swappable analog sticks and the ability to edit their sensitivity, but with every button on the controller able to swapped to a user's preference. While that button remapping is currently limited the Elite controller, which costs a steep $150, Microsoft has said that soon the Xbox One's software will be updated with compatibility for button editing on any controller.

Xbox One won’t really get Cortana until 2016

Xbox One won’t really get Cortana until 2016

Xbox's Major Nelson has just revealed another slew of features for the New Xbox One Experience, a.k.a. the NXOE, but this time around not all of them are good news. Well, to be fair, only one isn't. Despite having hyped about how Cortana will help gamers stay on top of things even in the middle of gaming, it seems that such gamers will have to wait a bit longer to experience that. When Microsoft releases NXOE later this year, Cortana will only be available as a preview, with a full rollout happening only next year.

Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider bundle raids tombs this holiday

Microsoft has just announced a new Xbox One console bundle for this holiday season, this time featuring the new Rise of the Tomb Raider game. As the follow-up the 2013 release of Tomb Raider, itself a reboot of the near 20-year old series, Rise of the Tomb Raider is one of this holiday season's biggest titles. And seeing as how console/game bundles always turn out to be big sellers, much to the chagrin of GameStop, it makes sense that Microsoft would make this their latest value package.
