Remember Microsoft’s Avatars, those wobbly caricatures that danced around the Xbox 360's dashboard? They’ve been sidelined ever since the release of the Xbox One, but that doesn’t mean the company has given up on them.
Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition, which was nearly impossible to find from its initial release right up until the company stopped making it, proved gamers are hungry for nostalgia. But has 16 years been long enough for Microsoft fans to feel similarly nostalgic for the original Xbox’s gigantic controllers?
After more than a year of rumors and teases and dorky Xtreme code names, Microsoft’s latest console, the Xbox One X, is finally here.

Microsoft’s next console, codenamed Project Scorpio, will be called Xbox One X, the company said today. It will be out on November 7 worldwide and cost four-hundred-ninety-nine U.S. dollars (aka $500).
Technically E3, video games’ biggest trade show of the year, starts next Tuesday. That’s when the doors will open at Los Angeles Convention Center and over 500,000 attendees will swarm hundreds of booths filled with the latest video games, consoles, and gaming paraphernalia. But the event really starts Saturday night,…
Yesterday was a big day for Xbox One owners. After a couple of years of knowing they bought an Xbox One when twice as many of their friends bought PS4s, Xbox owners got to feel vindicated in their choice as Microsoft launched the first true Netflix for digital games. Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service whereby…
E3 is right around the corner, and that means we’re about to get deluged with colossal news and shiny new trailers. And as we do every year before the hype, let’s first take a look back to see if the three console makers delivered on all the grand promises they made at last year’s E3. Up first: Microsoft.
Microsoft has promised that their next console, Scorpio, will be “the most powerful console ever,” and today the company delivered on that promise, revealing a set of beefy specs that, in terms of raw power, surpass any video game console on the market today.
Because no holiday is too small to build a sale event around, Microsoft’s offering 31.4% Pi Day discounts on computers, $100 off Xbox consoles, $31.41 off select video games, and more, today only. There are computers available to fit any budget, so head over to Microsoft to see all of the discounts.
In a gritty vintage video games store in Manhattan’s East Village, a man who would only be identified by GorillaStomp, his PlayStation username, firmly explained why he should fix your video game console. Long before it was his livelihood, it was his fascination, and one he’d never asked for permission to do. Now, as…
You’re heading to the store to get an Xbox One right now, and need to know which games to get. Or you’re at work or in school, daydreaming about what you want to play next. Or maybe you’re suiting up for a battle in the console war, cinching on your armor and trying to remember which games will best help you make the…
Take a good, hard look at the computer you’re using right now. If it’s seen better days (or if you just have a tax refund to spend), Microsoft’s President’s Day sale is a great excuse to upgrade.
Winter. The season where we cut open tauntauns in order to keep warm. And where we bundle up with a blanket, some cocoa, and games. Here’s a list of the numerous games coming out during these snowy times.
I’ve been sneaking and shooting my way through Resident Evil 7 for the last day and loving it. It’s a big breath of fresh air that’s pretty damn terrifying. Here are some early thoughts on what works and what doesn’t.
God, this is one of the geekiest puzzles on Earth and it’s absolutely awesome.
While playing Astroneer, I kept messaging my colleagues about cool ways it had killed me. It was a morbid thing to be excited about. But a satisfying death is the hallmark of a good survival game, and, even in its early stages, Astroneer has a lot of them.
When 2016 began, you needed to own an Xbox One to enjoy most of the benefits of Xbox gaming. Here at the end of the year, you don’t.
People who pre-order games digitally on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have been earning themselves an unadvertised and easily abused perk: the ability to rate, and sometimes review, video games that they have yet to play and aren’t even out yet. As a result, both online stores are full of star-ratings for games that…
Dishonored 2 is a depressing slog of bodies and misery. It is confusing and jumbled, full of half formed ideas, and ready to break at the slightest touch. But, in spite of itself, it works.
