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.

The Xbox One Media Remote is now official

An accidental unveiling of the Xbox One Media Remote warmed us up to the device being a thing that exists, but I'm still not too keen on paying $24.99 for it. Microsoft has now properly announced the remote -- it's releasing ...

This special edition 3DS XL is for Yoshi fanatics

There was talk of an incoming Yoshi-themed 3DS XL but we had to resort to using our imaginations. These official images from Nintendo are much better. The limited-edition system will arrive on the same day as Yoshi's New Isla...

Xbox 360 is getting two new limited-edition controllers

With the exception of the Nintendo 64 era, I have never gone too wild with owning differently-colored controllers. Generally speaking, the default one (or two) styles are good enough for me. That's looking to be the case with...

Here are some Google Glass videogame prototypes

After a flurry of excitement last year, you don't hear that much about Google Glass these days, aside from people getting into various types of trouble with the law. So it's no surprise to me to see a demonstration of some s...
