Which of the three console publishers has the best holiday lineup?

For me it's probably Nintendo
Nov 09
// Chris Carter
Holiday season is upon us, and our wallets are not ready -- they never are. There's a ton of games around the corner, but surprisingly, most of the are multiplatform. That's a huge win in my book, but the "big three" console ...

Real or fake, I was fascinated by that so-called Nintendo PlayStation. The system, a sort of Super Nintendo with a CD drive, was produced through a partnership with Sony but never saw a commercial release. The machines are ex...

Nov 03

I've got the little futuristic frog guy as my PS4 avatar, so I'm set for life. But not everyone is down with him or the other freebies. Somehow, it has taken Sony until now to lend a helping hand. As of today, PlayStation 4 u...
