CD Projekt Red is hoping that Sony will open up console cross-platform play

Opening up cross-platform play was such a huge and funny move by Microsoft. After years of turning it down and being the market leader during the 360 era, they've now put the decision in Sony's charge. If Sony somehow decides it wants to gi...   read

Sonic The Hedgehog 4, six others come to Xbox One via backward compatibility

So this is the part where I say "eight games" have hit the Xbox One by way of Xbox 360 backward compatibility, and you respond "Silly Mr. Peanutbutter! Sonic 4 is one game!" Well, we're both right. Indeed, Sonic 4 was split i...   read

This limited-edition Xbox One S is a bit much

PSA: Halo 5 is free to play for Xbox Live Gold members

Scorpio is '4.5 times' more powerful than Xbox One, but 4K isn't mandatory

One of the things that's been sold to us since the new PS4 hardware was first referred to as "PS4K" is that 4K is cool and good and part of some inevitable future. It's definitely been a talking point for Microsoft's newly announced "Projec...   read
