Microsoft is preparing at least two new Xbox models for release in the next two years, sources tell Kotaku. Later this year we’ll see a cheaper, smaller Xbox One, and next year Microsoft will release a more powerful version of their premiere console.
Glitches and wobbles aside, Homefront: The Revolution is an adequate shooter that features some interesting moments. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t good either.
The new Doom, really, is rather like the old Doom. You fight swarms of hulking demons. You never stop moving for fear of being swamped in laser fire, missiles, and pile-driving hell knights. Your screen is permanently suffused with explosions, blood, and chunks of bodies. You, the Doom Marine, are what stands between…
Visually enhanced versions of the last-gen single player hits Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman Arkham City are getting bundled and sold for $50 as Batman Return To Arkham, according to the game’s publisher, Warner Brothers.
Maybe this will please some fans who are still mad about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare—the Xbox 360 version of Black Ops is now compatible with Xbox One, Microsoft said today.
This week, Microsoft will release close to a million Xbox Live gamertags to the public, the company said today. These handles, which Microsoft says have been inactive since the original Xbox era, will start going free on May 18 at 2pm ET.
You drop right into a firefight, plasma crackling as it flies past your head. You push forward, blasting away at a pack of grunts, causing them to panic. An Elite taunts you with a burst of blue fire from his rifle, but he backs off when, having caught your attention, you go after him. Starting right in the thick of…
Xbox France had three of these consoles made up as a promo for The Latest Comic Book Movie™. You can’t buy them, but you can look at them and wonder why we can’t at least get that controller.
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…
Today, the game’s dev team confirmed that Superhot, the FPS where your movement controls time, is coming to the Xbox One on May 3. The PC version, which we reviewed, is a pretty good time, so the port might be worth checking out if you prefer gaming on consoles.
After a successful ten-and-a-half-year run, the Xbox 360 is officially saying goodbye. One might even say it’s turning around 360 degrees and walking away.
Per 2K Games’s announcement on Twitter, Mafia III comes to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 7. There’s a new story trailer which you can watch above, and you can read about Kotaku UK’s early impressions of the game at last year’s Gamescom here.
Insomniac also has some non-VR games this year. Song of the Deep, the studio’s GameStop-published underwater Metroidvania about a girl piloting a submarine to rescue her dad, now has a release date: July 12 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
A name similar to Battlefront, Battlecry and even Bloodborne hasn’t helped next month’s Battleborn stand out. Descriptions of the game place it in an overflowing stew of team shooters and MOBA-influenced games. This week, at last, there’s an open beta which allows us to at least judge the game on its pre-release…
There’s something uniquely horrid about the prospect of biological warfare. There’s the obvious: diseases like ebola are strong candidates for the very worst way a person can die. Then there’s the careless, wanton nature of the destruction: unlike other weapons, you can’t ‘aim’ a plague.
“You’re sort of buying a lottery ticket,” the game developer Richard Rouse recently told me while explaining the mindset of trying to make an indie game after spending many years doing big budget stuff for Microsoft, Ubisoft and others.
Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo called The Library Halo: Combat Evolved’s most notorious level. An entry on Halopedia referred to it as one of the least popular levels in the Halo series. The Library is the hardest level in the game by far, a cruel gauntlet featuring seemingly never-ending waves of Halo’s…
How many games do you know that manage to combine Jungian psychology, Japanese school-life and urban legends? Just like me, the Persona series isn’t as popular in the West as Final Fantasy, but it’s been around just as long (since 1987), and is arguably much more interesting.
A new console generation starts, and you wait for something special. The launch games are okay, but they are really just shinier versions of last-gen releases. Eventually, though, you play a game that hadn’t been done before, couldn’t have been done before. For this generation, for me, that game is Quantum Break,…
