Gears 4 Won’t Have Competitive Cross-Platform Multiplayer

In a move intended to cross-promote two of their biggest products, Microsoft announced during E3 that most of their major 2016-2017 releases would be available on both XBox One and Windows PC.

Despite What The Marketplace Says, Destiny Isn’t Free

Bungie’s Destiny has begun showing up in the Playstation Store and XBox Marketplace listed as “FREE.” Is it a new business strategy? Has Destiny switched to a free-to-play model (and right before a major retail release to boot)? Think for a minute if that makes sense…..nope, it doesn’t. But this isn’t an error either. What’s […]

New Video Exposes The Abandoned 360 Port Of Goldeneye

Once upon a time Microsoft, Nintendo and Activision, entered an agreement to make the impossible happen and produce a high-resolution port of the N64 classic Goldeneye for the XBox 360.

Zombies Are Taking Call of Duty To Spaceland

Activision has taken the cover off the theme for the Zombies mode in Infinite Warfare, and it’s…interesting, to say the least.

While the Zombies mode has never been […]

The XBox One Finally Ends A Month On Top

Ever since the Playstation 4 and the XBox One initiated the current console generation, the XBox has been choking on the PS4’s dust. This was largely the result of self-sabotage on Microsoft’s part — if you recall, the One was initially promoted as locking games to consoles so that your friends couldn’t borrow them, and […]

Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Descent Out Today For XBox

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s third DLC pack, Descent, hits today on XBox One (PS4 players have had it for a month).
