The next entry in the Homefront line of games is set to be delivered in "The Revolution", a game previewed today by Crytek UK. This game’s first preview (announcement) trailer shows cenematics, but is indicative of what we’ll be seeing for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015. This game will almost certainly be detailed at length at E3 2014.

The game Battlefield Hardline has been made official by EA Games, and details have spilled which essentially detail the entire game, top to bottom. A gameplay demo session earlier this month with EA had players suggesting that there’d be a big "S.W.A.T." element to be dealt with. From what we’re seeing in a leaked gameplay video today, it doesn’t stop there - Battlefield Hardline is all about tossing you in on a war on crime.

This month an Xbox One software upgrade brings on the ability to work with an external hard drive. With this ability, users have been testing multiple different types of drives to see which work quickest. Inside the standard Xbox One is a Samsung 500GB 5400 RPM (M8 ST500LM012) working with the machine’s standard SATA2 connection - with USB 3.0 connecting your drive to the board, providing one reason why this external method may be significantly quicker - or so it would seem.
The Avengers have arrived in the Disney Infinity universe, bringing with them a word on how an open-sandbox model will work with their mighty hand upon the trigger. Disney Infinity is a game which, like Skylanders, uses physical toys to activate virtual-reality characters in the game.

The game Metro Redux is a combination of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light entirely re-mastered and improved for the next generation of gaming consoles and gaming PCs. These titles are amongst some of the highest-rated games in their genre - we even used Metro: Last Light as our key example for PC streaming for NVIDIA SHIELD - now they’re returning as digital downloads for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Xbox One will get support for real names, external drives, and turning SmartGlass phones and tablets into universal remotes with OneGuide support in an update in June, Microsoft has announced today.
