People are flipping Quantum Break PC codes on eBay, effectively halving the price for everyone

One of Microsoft's selling points of Quantum Break for platform-agnostic people was that those who pre-ordered the game on Xbox One would get a bonus copy on Windows 10 PC. In an effort to bolster its PC gaming presence, Microsoft even...

The Gears of War 4 trailer as it was originally meant to sound

I have a theory that every single Gears of War trailer was originally set to the song "Mad World." Like it worked so well for the original trailer back in 2006 that Microsoft just decided to use it for every game in the series, but at the v...
