Xbox One bundles are $50 off and include a free game at the Microsoft Store

We've mentioned this briefly in the weekend deals roundup last weekend, but the sales event is noteworthy enough for its own post. Until March 28, all Xbox Ones will be $50 off at most major retailers (think: Best Buy, Target, Walmart). If ...

 
New PS4 model rumored

These new Xbox One controllers sure are slick

I've heard it's hard to use the Xbox One Elite Controller and go back to the system's still-good standard gamepads, but I wouldn't know. I haven't used one yet! I'm completely free to gawk at these new colors -- Copper Shadow and Dusk Shado...

Hyrule Warriors Legends is a grim warning against revised hardware

When Microsoft first announced that it was considering modular revisions for Xbox One hardware, I was actually somewhat on board with the idea. If done right, games would all run acceptably on the base hardware, with improvements on revised...

Razer Kraken Mobile

Gaming Headphones
In general, if you wear a pair of gaming headphones outside of your house, it's going to be clear you've done so. The typical angular, sharp, edgy design choices that run rampant in the gaming headset market tend to clash wit...   read

Hyperkin ProCube
When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use out of it. So I managed to get my hands on one, and I have to say, it's a near perfect recreation.   read

FightStick review
Another fighting game, another fightstick. This month Mad Catz is unleashing several sticks into the market, including a sub $100 option, and a few $200+ models. Do you really need an expensive stick to play Street Fighter V? No, but a lot of you are going to buy it anyway.   read
