New PS4 details
That new, better PlayStation 4 hardware Sony is expected to announce ahead of PlayStation VR in October? We have a few more details, thanks to sources speaking to Giant Bomb. First, drop the PS4.5 (lazy) and PS4K (inaccurate)...   read

Sony will begin demoing PlayStation VR at retail in June

You're probably sick of being told that you need to see (or experience, or become one with) virtual reality before you "can truly get it." Which is fair! There's a layer of truth to that sentiment, but it's so often used to shut down health...

Is Microsoft about to reveal a new Xbox console?

Microsoft has filed two unannounced projects with the FCC.  The filings for model numbers 1682 and 1683 - which were spotted by eagle-eyed NeoGAFfer ekim (who also spotted yesterday’s Katamari news,&...

Now I'm even more into that Super Famicom-themed New 3DS XL

If we all got one free do-over and could pick out a single 3DS design with no pesky restrictions to bog us down, I wouldn't hesitate to choose the upcoming Super Famicom-style New 3DS XL. Unsurprisingly, it's a Japan exclusive, and it's als...

 
G900 Chaos Spectrum
These last few weeks have been very kind to my gaming phalanges. After upgrading from a bargain basement mouse and keyboard combination, I upgraded to Logitech's G610 Orion Brown and G900 Chaos Spectrum. Obviously, such ...   read

G610 Orion Brown
For the last couple months, I've been using a $2 keyboard that I bought because I built a PC with leftover parts I had, and needed something functional for Destructoid. While my main PC has a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate, that's...   read

Gaming peripherals, on the whole, can be pretty dang expensive. If it isn’t a £150 keyboard, it’s a £200 pair of headphones, or maybe even an £800 VR headset. Add all the different bits-and-bobs ...   read

This is the Game Boy of my dreams

This "Game Boy Zero" from YouTube user Wermy ranks way up there as far as cool custom systems go. Besides the nice new screen and two extra face buttons (taken from an NES controller to provide a more authentic feel), the system also has e...

What's 'neXt' for Microsoft? Not this new console, apparently

Microsoft has debunked rumours that it is working on a new console.  When Microsoft employee David Gardner listed the “Xbox neXt” on his LinkedIn page, the internet exploded with rumours of a new or improved console.&n...

Which one of you clowns gonna drop $5,000 on a 24k gold NES?

Maybe you remember the Analogue NT from two years back. This bougie boutique is an "NES made of aircraft-grade aluminum." But when you have a specialty product with limited appeal and a high price -- the aluminum version is $500 -- the corr...

European Amazon's got a huge PC gaming sale going on this week

Were you looking at upgrading your gaming setup? If you were, this week might be the perfect week to do it, because Amazon Europe is running a huge sale on various bits of gaming tech, starting today (April 4) and ending on April 10. Comput...

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

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 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

These new Xbox One controllers sure are slick

Hyrule Warriors Legends is a grim warning against revised hardware
