Xbox One will live on after Xbox Series X launches

Xbox One will live on after Xbox Series X launches

The beginning of a new console generation is an exciting time, but it can also be a worrying one for owners of current-generation hardware. The temptation for console makers to throw all their weight behind a new machine must be pretty strong, but thankfully, they often keep supporting old-generation hardware for a while after a new console launches. That's particularly true when the old-gen hardware was a popular seller, like the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 2.

Untitled Goose Game finds honking big success

There was no lack of notable games released in 2019, but one that really got people talking was Untitled Goose Game. The indie title, made by developer House House, put players in the role of the titular (untitular?) goose and tasked them with disrupting the residents of a small town by mostly being a jerk. Untitled Goose Game definitely had plenty of meme potential, but now it's clear that the concept of playing a mischievous goose is one that had legs too.

Halo Infinite concept art teases big things for Master Chief’s return

Way back at E3 2018, Microsoft revealed Halo Infinite as the next title in the long running Halo series. The company didn't have much to say about the game during that show, but a year later it went back to E3 with a new trailer in tow.
