The Xbox One’s new UI just dropped. It emphasizes streaming games with the just-released Beam app, discovery and sharing over navigating to apps you already use regularly. It’s also a little faster.
If you didn’t get the Xbox One you were hoping for during the holidays, Amazon’s giving you another chance to buy it at a $50 discount, for a limited time. $249 gets you the 500GB white model with a copy of Battlefield 1, the same price most stores were charging on Black Friday, albeit without any extra toss-ins.
Two months ago, YouTuber DSPStanky uploaded a video where they wrecked everyone as Lucio. We’re talking, literal dancing around opponents. One of the most common responses at the time was basically “you’d never be able to do this on PC.”
If you were thinking of picking up a PS4 Slim anyway, this Uncharted bundle includes an extra DualShock 4, which would normally set you back $40-$50. As far as PS4 deals go, that’s pretty great!
This PS4 Slim Uncharted bundle costs $10 more than buying the console by itself, but it comes with a copy of Overwatch (which you should definitely play!) and Star Wars Battlefront (which is definitely a game!). All things considered, that’s one of the best deals we’ve seen on the Slim to date.
Having reviewed the first two headsets in Kingston’s HyperX Cloud line, the feature that resonates with me most about the new Cloud Revolver is the steel suspension frame. Maybe reverberates is a better word.
We’ve seen bigger discounts on other PS4 bundles, but this is the best deal you’re likely to see on the Destiny: Taken King Limited Edition console. [Sony PS4 Destiny: The Taken King Limited Edition Bundle, $380 with code VISA5]
Walmart just unveiled one of the best PS4 bundle deals we’ve seen to date. You’ll still pay the usual $400, but you’ll get everything below:
Yesterday in Beijing, Chinese handset maker Xiaomi revealed the Mi Box Mini, an Android TV-like device that can play games.
Like the Xbox One months before it, Sony's PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita have been delayed in China until further notice. The reasoning behind the delay? Sony needs to resubmit its business plans to the Chinese government.
If Chinese media reports are to be believed, Sony's PlayStation 4 will cost less than the Xbox One when it launches in China, just like it did everywhere else in the world.
The Alienware Alpha sounds awesome. It’s smaller and more powerful than the PS4 and Xbox One. It doubles as an actual Windows PC! But be warned: it’s not as easy to use as a game console, not as foolproof. It’s not nearly the slam dunk I was hoping it would be.
A good surround sound-capable sound bar is the perfect solution for those wary of trying to position speakers all over their gaming space. Due for release next month, Razer's Leviathan could be a very good surround sound-capable sound bar.
The first mainstream video game console to launch in China in over 13 years has just been delayed. The Xbox One won't be sold in China starting tomorrow—instead, it'll be released sometime before the end of 2014.
Many game developers are rushing towards mobile phones as a place to release their games. Nintendo, however, has preferred to stick close to its own gaming hardware. Which is why it's so odd that Nintendo characters appeared at this mobile phone booth at the recent China Joy gaming expo.
