PlayStation 4 trumped Xbox One in September sales

PlayStation 4 trumped Xbox One in September sales

In the latest console war, Sony has frequently trumped Microsoft with more PlayStation 4 sales than Xbox One sales. We've seen that reflected many times, such as at the year's beginning when the PS4 was deemed the bestselling console in the US in January. According to NPD, that reign is holding steady, and despite anticipation otherwise, the PlayStation 4 outsold the Xbox One last month. This was despite Microsoft dangling a free game in gamers' faces last month, which many believed would boost the Xbox One's sales numbers.

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Review

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Review

This release of Sleeping Dogs is the big-time re-up the game needed for the current generation of consoles: Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It still doesn’t look as fantastic as it does when you’re topped-out on a high-end PC, but Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition never looked better on a console. This game was fun and entertaining in an evolved old-school way when it was first released, and it’s all the more entertaining now.

Vine released for Xbox One, doesn’t open

Vine released for Xbox One, doesn’t open

This is certainly a strange app release if ever there was one. The generally mobile app Vine has been released for Xbox One. That’s before a dedicated Vine app has been released for OS X, before a dedicated app has been released for Windows. Vine has been released for Windows Phone, however, as well as iOS and Android. And you can gain access to Vine content via a web browser if you do so choose. That means basically every device has Vine now.

Assassin’s Creed Unity bundles and Rogue Storyline trailer tapped

Assassin’s Creed Unity bundles and Rogue Storyline trailer tapped

This morning we’re having a peek at several different angles on Assassin’s Creed Unity - product, storyline, and gameplay. While we got our Assassin’s Creed: Unity First-Impressions in on the 6th, one week ago, we’re having another look at the game from a final release schedule perspective today. It begins with bundles - two of them, both with the Xbox One. We can't help but wonder how long it'll be before the PlayStation 4 bundles arrive (if they exist, that is to say) - without camera, of course.

Your homescreen, desktop, or whatever you want to call it on your Xbox One is about to become a whole lot brighter.

This system would allow custom backgrounds, full themes, color changes, and more.

Alien: Isolation is just the first of the age of Terror Games

Alien: Isolation is just the first of the age of Terror Games

When I played Alien: Isolation for the first time, I got sick to my stomach. It was a physical necessity that I stop playing - and I hadn’t even seen the Alien itself yet. Now is the next age of the horror game. Not just horror for the gamer - not just a place where you can get out an tune out. Instead you’re trapped in a space station with the perfect organism, one that cannot be killed, one that’s never been so real to you as it is here and now, discovering you having a nervous breakdown in a staff locker.

Is Xbox One’s Kinect dead?

Is Xbox One’s Kinect dead?

Earlier this year Microsoft revealed their response to the $100-cheaper PlayStation 4 in the form of an Xbox One without the Kinect. Previous to this reveal of the $399 Kinect-less Xbox One, there’d only been the Xbox One with Kinect, now called a "bundle", that was $499. Microsoft reported in July that their June Xbox One console sales had "more than doubled" due to the new standard sans-Kinect release. Fast-forward to October of 2014 - right now, that is - and that Kinect "bundle" might be on its way out the door completely.

Plex for Xbox One coming tomorrow, 360 “later”

Plex is a pretty versatile media streamer, requiring no proprietary hardware, only an app. Making a home on various hardware that you don’t control isn’t easy, though. Today, Plex is announcing they’ve made a new home on the media streaming device you probably use in your living room, the Xbox.
