Xbox One controller adapts, goes wireless on PC this year

At GDC 2015, Microsoft announced plans to release a wireless adapter for Xbox One controllers on Windows later this year. Great news, but we need dates, Phil Spencer. Specific dates! I had terrible luck with my wireless adapter for the Xbox 360 gamepad -- damn thing was spotty at best, non-functional at worst -- so here's hoping these new ones are an improvement.

Oh hey, this looks like the final Steam Controller

Weird as it might still look, you have to admit that Valve's Steam Controller has come far. Remember this photo? Or this more recent one? It's like leafing through your worst yearbooks. Given that I play PC-centric games with...

Let's guess how much the Nvidia Titan X will cost

During an Unreal Engine panel at the Game Developers Conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showed up to announce the Titan X before handing the video card over to Epic's Tim Sweeney. Presumably, yesterday's Nvidia presentation was just too packed full of Nvidia Shield talk. The Titan X has a 12GB frame buffer and 8 billion transistors. How much is this thing gonna cost?

Backers of crowdfunded Delta Six controller hit by friendly fire

The hunt is on today for the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL, here's what I found photo
The hunt is on today for the Majora's Mask New 3DS XL, here's what I found
by Chris Carter

[Update: Target seems to have some extra stock online from dropped pre-orders. Check now (try the mobile link too) and throughout the day to see if anything pops up. GameStop is also taking orders on a $250 bundle with the game and Majora's Mask-themed New 3DS.]

Another big videogame product launch, another retailer hunt from yours truly.

This morning the New 3DS XL debuted across the country in the US, and thousands of fans are looking to get their hands on the coveted Majora's Mask 3DS. As many of you know it sold out in minutes in-store at GameStop, and online at Best Buy, among other stores. I got word that select stores would be getting shipments in this morning, so I headed out to three Targets, one Best Buy, and called many more locations.

The verdict? Unless you're in a rural area, your chances of getting one are very slim, even if you go at opening. All of the stores I contacted obtained three to four, and sold out immediately after the doors opened. According to one shop, customers waited outside the night before to snag one of the three of its stock.

Review: New Nintendo 3DS XL photo
Review: New Nintendo 3DS XL
by Chris Carter

Nintendo has an interesting history in terms of portables. Outside of the rare add-on like the expansion pack for the Nintendo 64 or the Game Boy Player for the GameCube, they play it rather conservatively when it comes to consoles.

But for their portable line, yowza do they go all out. Colors, new styles, paint jobs -- heck, it'll take you half a day to sift through this massive list of 3DS iterations. So here we are with the "New" 3DS, a moniker Nintendo has used far too often.

In this case, it's somewhat justified.

These Bloodborne PS4s are kind of lazily done, but I want them

My launch PS4 died a few months ago. Yep, just up and died. So I had to pick up a new one, and figured hey, why not the Destiny white PS4 -- it's the same price, and I can give the pack-in game away. It was a good idea a...
