Watch Dogs pre-order cancellation a simple error: no need to freak

This morning a report was delivered about order cancellations for the game Watch Dogs, a title set to be delivered some time in early 2014.

Steam Machine OEMs: ready when you are, Valve

This past week at CES 2014 we had the opportunity to have a chat with iBuyPower's Marketing Manager Ricky Lee on their first Steam Machine and the potential for Valve's SteamOS. With this operating system, users are meant to take the gaming PC into the living room to play like a major console - to compete with the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, basically.

Xbox One laptop mod made real

Quick to the hacking switch this week is James “DarkUncle” Terry with an Xbox One laptop modified unit. This machine works with a relatively large bulk, but a massive amount of ability to boot, of course, as it’s working with the same capabilities as the original. Here the machine works with its own display that folds up, Kinect on the side, and the same beastly power brick. The standard Xbox One Wireless Controller works just fine, as well.
