At GDC last month, Microsoft's plans for the immediate future largely focused on a unified platform anchored by Windows 10. We even sat in on a platform demo that was dedicated entirely to showing off how all the systems wou...


Xbox Live's small weekly Deals with Gold sale features an interesting juxtaposition of games this week. One title strives to teach you about an under-represented culture. Most of the rest task you with lining up across from p...


Windows 10 is nearly upon us, and it may be sooner than we thought -- according to a leak from an AMD earnings call, it will be released in late July. For those of you who own Windows 7 and 8, it will be a free upgrade -...


Microsoft is down a boss, as Phil Harrison has resigned from his reign as VP of Xbox in Europe. GamesIndustry International has the exclusive confirmation of the departure that's been rumored since GDC. Xbox is fram...




Ah, another public service announcement -- another opportunity for us to remind you to remember your coat and hat when going outside to play, lest you catch a cold. You'd lose your head if it weren't bolted to your neck....


Xbox players may have noticed recently that Microsoft has turned a new leaf when it comes to the quality of sales. Once known for being laughably bad, Microsoft's often very respectable Ultimate Game Sales have gone a long wa...


Head of Xbox Phil Spencer likes to talk about games. However, that doesn't mean that he restricts himself to only talking about titles that his company's working on. No, he'll discuss anything, even Nintendo properties. When ...


Microsoft announced last week at GDC in San Francisco that it was introducing cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10 devices. That opens a world of possibility in ways for developers to deliver games to their audience. So...


The latest generation in gaming has brought with it an emphasis on sharing. Screenshots and gameplay videos can be relatively easily captured and uploaded for anyone's audience to see. It's a smart way to drive interaction --...


In the recent past, Xbox Live's Games with Gold program has had mostly the same cadence every month: a standout title, an indie game, and a bit of filler. March breaks that mold with three superb games from 2013. March's Xbo...


There's a tiny niche audience of consumers that love both buying things and doing it at a discount. Seriously, just the smallest sliver on a Venn diagram. Still, Microsoft's doing its best to cater to that sub-section with an...


Microsoft's Games With Gold promotion actually isn't too bad anymore, but this month's offerings are on their way out. MX vs. ATV Alive is already gone, but you still have time to get The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings on...


We get it; you're a hip cat. You got some of those bitcoins to your name. You also have a Microsoft account for purchasing content from the Windows and Xbox stores. The latter isn't so much because you're cool; it's because o...


There are a few dates every year that we can bank on new videogames being revealed. The first couple days of E3 are the best for this. However, in recent years, the annual December videogames awards show has proven to hold it...


While the Halo: The Master Chief Collection gears up for a November release, 343 Industries and Microsoft have prepared a full documentary explaining the development process for the remastering of Halo 2. Halo 2 is...


If you've been using the Xbox Music service for a while now, prepare to be disappointed -- the service is ceasing as a free offer as of December 1st, 2014. Previously the music streaming app was available for free with ads, b...


Just in time for the start of the Fall Classic (Go Royals!), Microsoft has slashed prices on Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of R.B.I. Baseball '14, discounting both down to $9.99. With all that saved money, you could buy a ti...


As if we don't have enough canceled Star Wars games to mourn already, here's a couple more. During a recent Nintendo Voice Chat appearance, Factor 5 president Julian Eggebrecht opened up about a Rogue Squadron compilation and...


I believe that Harmonix's Disney Fantasia Music Evolved is one of those games you'll have to experience for yourself to really get. You can read our previews and get some idea of how it made us feel, but I really think that t...


The original Forza Horizon impressed us back in 2012 with its ability to incorporate what we already loved about Forza Motorsport into an absolutely massive open-world sandbox racing game, while not completely ditching its si...


As part of this week's Deals with Gold promotion, Microsoft's slashing prices by a third across three Xbox One games. Web-slinging Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($40.19), shadowy noir Contrast ($10.04), and death s...


Microsoft has revealed its Tokyo Game Show lineup, and one has to wonder how much it will resonate the crowd next week at the Makuhari Messe convention center. Japan has never embraced the Xbox brand, largely due to a lack of software designed to appeal to the local market, and a slate of titles like this doesn't figure to bring about a sea change.


Xbox Live users are now reporting intermittent sign-in issues, and the group claiming responsibility for today's PlayStation Network attacks and bomb threat is again taking credit. Microsoft seems to be aware of the...


If you're going to be in Seattle next week for PAX Prime, Xbox is giving you the opportunity to get your hands on some games before the convention even begins. Bonus perks are you get to ride in the Sunset Overdrive bus,...


Microsoft has revealed a new accessory for the Xbox 360 -- the 500GB Hard Drive. Yep, that's 360, not "One," as the prior generation is getting the upgrade here. It'll cost $110 for the privilege, although no release date out...


Xbox's flagship franchise isn't something that Microsoft's going to stray from anytime soon. Why would it? If there was any doubt about Halo's lasting appeal, it was dashed with the E3 reveal of Halo: The Master Chief Collect...


If its word is to be believed, Xbox is going to take advantage of its time at the world's biggest videogame convention. When gamescom hits (and in the days leading up to it), Microsoft will hold a handful of events where rev...


You ever hear of game developers living like rock stars? That's what Atari was doing back in the '80s when it was on top of the world. Then E.T. happened, and well, it all went wrong very quickly. As part of Xbox's...


Even though Microsoft just ended its summer's Ultimate Games Sale, it's not content to simply cease offering discounts altogether. Everything with a gun must go, apparently -- leading to some pretty decent prices on both Xbox...


Here we are, the final day of this Xbox 360 sale. It's like last call at the bar, your mind just a little blurry from one too many vodka tonics, and that damn Semisonic song just came on over the speakers. You know you're goi...


No, it's not Xbox 360 newcomer Peggle 2, and yeah, Left 4 Dead 2's pretty old at this point. And anyone that's interested in Madden 25 would probably be better served by waiting for the next iteration in the franchi...


We're about halfway through the Xbox Ultimate Games Sale, and the daily deals are really starting to heat up. While Grand Theft Auto V is the most high-profile of the bunch, the rest are no slouches. The likes of Need fo...


On the third day of Xbox's Ultimate Games Sale, you can pick up two games that are relatively new to the platform. Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is probably the most enticing, but don't sleep on the Xbox 360 HD port...


[Update: More games reconfirmed or announced, plus loads of trailers added.] Microsoft just showed off some of the additional ID@Xbox games we can expect from indie developers. Of note are Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Cu...


Ubisoft just showed off gameplay for Assassin's Creed Unity for the first time, and as part of the reveal they announced that there will be four-player co-op. This is the "biggest playground ever. Hundreds of quests, ac...


Microsoft sends word that they've announced more than 45 new apps for Xbox One and Xbox 360 globally today. Their plan is to get the entertainment stuff out of the way to make E3 all about games.  They're now up to a to...


We've known for a little while now that Xbox One was finally going to be included in Microsoft's continuing Games with Gold program beginning in the month of June. We just didn't know when in June that was going to take effec...


Confession time: Ever since the Reading Rainbow Kickstarter was announced earlier this week, we've been looking for a reason to write about it. It's a formative relic of our youths, how could we not want to discuss it? With ...


It's about that time of month when Microsoft clears its throat and lets everyone know what the upcoming titles in the Games with Gold program are going to be. But, it's already done that earlier in May, and Jordan already tol...


One of the trendiest rumors surrounding Xbox these past few months was the potential for Microsoft to either sell off the brand or kill it all together. Microsoft's CEO took the opportunity this week to put that rumor to rest...
