Xbox One’s Duke controller is a massive blast from the past

In an attempt to stand out from the competition, console manufacturers can sometimes be guilty of doing ridiculous things. There are many examples of wacky design decisions throughout gaming history, but one of the most legendary is the Duke controller for the original Xbox. Massive in every sense of the word, the Duke seemed equally lambasted and praised for its size.

Xbox One X stops by Best Buy for some hands-on time this weekend

What we've seen of the Xbox One X has been fairly impressive so far, but Microsoft still has a tough sell ahead of it. If consumers want Microsoft's 4K console, they're going to have to shell out $500, which is no small price to pay. If you think you'd rather try before you buy, then good news, because Best Buy has announced that it will be offering hands-on demos this weekend.

Minecraft’s biggest update ever (happens today)

Today is the biggest day in Minecraft history - if you don't count that one time the game went mobile. This is the first day when cross-platform play is live for all major Minecraft platforms. That means that Minecraft on Xbox One, Minecraft Mobile, Minecraft VR, and Minecraft for Windows 10 are all in the same universe. As Microsoft said in a release today, "Say goodbye to 'Minecraft: Xbox One Edition' or 'Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition' and hello to a universal 'Minecraft!'"

Monster Hunter: World brings the series back to consoles in January

To say that Monster Hunter fans are excited for Monster Hunter: World is probably understating it a bit. This is the first mainline Monster Hunter game we've seen on consoles for quite some time, with the last being Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U back in 2012. Today we're finding out just when those excited fans will be able to play the game, and it's sooner than a lot of people probably think.

Windows 10 UWP games on Xbox One will soon be more powerful

Windows 10 UWP games on Xbox One will soon be more powerful

While Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform has largely been welcomed on the apps side of the business, it has been eyed with suspicion on the gaming front. Epic Games’ Tim Sweeney minced no words in criticizing UWP’s chilling effects on PC gaming, warning of how it could be used to turn the culture into a closed one. On the technical side of things, he points out how UWP severely limits how much of the hardware games can access. Microsoft is partly addressing that last part, but only if you’re targeting the Xbox One. In the upcoming Fall Creators Update, perhaps the worst-named update, UWP game developers will have access to more of the Xbox One’s hardware, paving the way for possibly more sophisticated, and resource-intensive, cross platform games.

PS4 and Xbox One cross play silently enabled in Fornite

It would seem that Sony's aversion to cross play between the Xbox One and the PS4 has come to an end. This whole saga first began when Rocket League developer Psyonix suggested that enabling cross play between the two consoles would be a simple endeavor, with Sony turning around and denying such a move. Ever since then, Sony has declined to open up cross play between the two consoles at every turn.

Xbox has a really smart system to avoid game download hell

As games get bigger, Microsoft has cooked up a sly way to keep Xbox One and Xbox One X download times down, not to mention save on hard drive space. Dubbed Intelligent Delivery, the system reportedly prioritizes only what each gamer actively needs, rather than forcing them to download the entire title. It'll mean potentially huge savings for Xbox One owners as Xbox One X games proliferate.
