Because your Xbox 360 ones won't work with Xbox One
Oct 16
There's big talk of "equation language" for new kinds of force feedback in this Xbox One racing accessories video, and that sounds neat and all, but I think Microsoft is going to find that racing fans are going to push back o... read

I've been playing PC games with Razer's Ouroboros wired/wireless ambidextrous gaming mouse for a bit now, trying out everything from MMOs to FPS to casual games. This is one really nice mouse, but it had better be for its asking price of $149.99.  read feature

Xbox One to ship without headsets


But there's always Kinect!
Jun 25
It's been nearly a week since Microsoft announced its decision to scrap their DRM policy -- a decision met with some mixed, albeit mostly-positive reactions.
