That $99 Xbox 360 with a two-year contract promo has ended

In 2012, Microsoft rolled out a promotion in which people could pay $99 for an Xbox 360 (the basic 4GB model) with a Kinect -- if they signed up for a two-year Xbox Live Gold commitment of $14.99 per month. It's the sort of s...

Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium photo
Two new Razer laptops offer power and profile at a premium
by Steven Hansen

Every time I see a razor blade in person I have to pick it up. Those things are dangerous and shouldn't be left lying about. Kids could put them in their mouth or pigeons could weaponize them. Maybe mobsters will smuggle them into prisons to slice their garlic.

The same thing happens when I see a Razer Blade. I try to keep tech fetishization to a minimum, but seeing a sort of pretty, svelte laptop playing Sleeping Dogs at 3200 x 1800, I can't help but be a little bit impressed. I pick up the Blade just to make sure it isn't attached to the desk it's on with secret desk innards powering it. Nope, it's a for-real laptop, lighter and thinner than what I'm writing on now and I can barely run Portal

If you can trick your work into expensing $2,000+ laptops, you should get one of these new two.

Relive the N64 days with Did You Know Gaming

This episode of Did You Know Gaming covering various facts about the Nintendo 64 sure brings me back. Those terrible, amazing commercials are too much. From the failed Nintendo 64DD peripheral and its magneto-optical discs t...

You can still get a Watch Dogs PS4 bundle (in Europe)

Watch Dogs finally has a new release date -- May 27. That trailer also seems to have a bit of new information unless I'd just forgotten it. Typically, the lead's wife is killed and that's the impetus for revenge. There's a G...

Titanfall Xbox One bundle announced, and a UK price drop photo
Titanfall Xbox One bundle announced, and a UK price drop
by Chris Carter

Microsoft has confirmed the existence of a Titanfall Xbox One bundle, which will drop on March 11th for $499.99 in the US. It comes with a digital copy of the game, a "standard" Xbox One Console and Kinect sensor, a "standard" wireless controller, a "standard" headset, and one month of Xbox Live Gold.

In other words, there's nothing really special about this "for a limited time only" package other than the free copy of the game, since the Xbox One itself isn't branded in any way. Microsoft also announced a price drop in the UK from £430 to £399.99, which will start on Friday.

It's available now on Amazon for $499.99.
