HTC Vive
The first time I tried out the HTC Vive back at EGX 2015, I was absolutely blown away by the leap in gaming technology it presented. I spent half an hour painting in thin air, helping land aircraft safely, reeling back from s...   read

Has your pre-order for HTC's Vive been inexplicably cancelled?

Just hours before they’re due to be sent out, pre-orders for HTC’s Vive are being inexplicably cancelled. Pre-orders sold out within minutes of going live, but now it seems even those lucky enough to have snagged the VR hardware...

 
Roccat Nyth
You’d be forgiven for thinking MMO mice are a daft idea. Taking a perfectly good mouse and ramming in a load of tiny buttons right where your thumb sits sounds like it would be a recipe for disaster. At least, that’s what I thought until I got my hands on the Roccat Nyth modular gaming mouse. This thing’s great.   read

Oculus Rift review
I will never forget my first experience with virtual reality. I was at a county fair as a child, and there was a large line for a "virtual NASCAR" racing game. I took one look at the helmet, and that's all I needed to see -- ...   read

Sony
For over 20 years now, Sony has been a pillar of the gaming industry. It's at the forefront of the tech industry, and it lead the way with its consoles. But Sony, like every other company, isn’t infallible. It’s i...   read

Roccat keyboard
Roccat has always been one of those brands that I've been faintly aware of, yet never actually bothered to check out. Compared to bigger brands like Razer and Corsair, Roccat sits in the background, working on its products an...   read

Valve's letting us design and make our own Steam Controllers

As much as I love my Steam Controller, it’s difficult to deny that, for a lot of people, the ergonomics of it are incredibly weird. The buttons are in strange places, the grips are big and chunky, and there’s a big ol&rsquo...

 
Roccat Kova mouse
Until Roccat's Kova gaming mouse arrived on my desk this week, I had never actually heard of the company before. That's a shame, because there are a bunch of unique and interesting aspects of their gaming mouse design that set them aside from the competition. The Kova is not the greatest gaming mouse I've ever used, but it certainly fills a spot in the market previously not catered to.   read

This supposed NX controller leak looks more believable

Nintendo can't unveil its NX system soon enough. Another rumored controller leak has surfaced, and it looks much more convincing than the last one. According to perkele37, the person who posted these shots on reddit: Only the upper 'nubs...

Xbox One bundles are $50 off and include a free game at the Microsoft Store

We've mentioned this briefly in the weekend deals roundup last weekend, but the sales event is noteworthy enough for its own post. Until March 28, all Xbox Ones will be $50 off at most major retailers (think: Best Buy, Target, Walmart). If ...

 
New PS4 model rumored
Sony is reportedly cooking up a more powerful PlayStation 4 with, at the very least, a better GPU. That's according to several developer sources who have spoken with Kotaku, one of whom described the new console as "explorato...   read

These new Xbox One controllers sure are slick

I've heard it's hard to use the Xbox One Elite Controller and go back to the system's still-good standard gamepads, but I wouldn't know. I haven't used one yet! I'm completely free to gawk at these new colors -- Copper Shadow and Dusk Shado...

Hyrule Warriors Legends is a grim warning against revised hardware

When Microsoft first announced that it was considering modular revisions for Xbox One hardware, I was actually somewhat on board with the idea. If done right, games would all run acceptably on the base hardware, with improvements on revised...

Some people spend hundreds of pounds/dollars[insert your denomination here] on a headset. Me? I spend enough on consoles and subscriptions and games and t-shirts and Pop Vinyl figures as it is. So while I’m content enou...   read

Razer

When it comes to the gaming mouse market, there's a very mixed set of options available to pick from. There's simple mice with a few extra buttons, as well as angular monstrosities capable of being modified to the ends of the...   read

Razer Mamba Chroma

In general, if you wear a pair of gaming headphones outside of your house, it's going to be clear you've done so. The typical angular, sharp, edgy design choices that run rampant in the gaming headset market tend to clash wit...   read

Hyperkin ProCube
When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use out of it. So I managed to get my hands on one, and I have to say, it's a near perfect recreation.   read

FightStick review
Another fighting game, another fightstick. This month Mad Catz is unleashing several sticks into the market, including a sub $100 option, and a few $200+ models. Do you really need an expensive stick to play Street Fighter V? No, but a lot of you are going to buy it anyway.   read
