  Watch Video That went about as poorly as it possibly could've. PlayStation 5 pre-orders went live late Wednesday in the least coordinated effort imaginable. Every retailer opened their pre-orders up at a random and weird time, and then s...   read

  Watch Video The fight is about to get a lot feistier. Gears Tactics is coming to consoles on November 10, that much we already knew. That's when Splash Damages' surprisingly good Gears strategy game gets its first major content upd...   read

  Watch Video Sega's giving us more news next week about Phantasy Star Online 2's glow-up. What better place than Tokyo Game Show? Next Friday, there's a big Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis stream where Sega will show t...   read

  Watch Video Microsoft and Sony took divergent paths in their approach to next-gen technology. Microsoft developed two starkly different consoles for two different kinds of consumers; the Xbox Series X is the top-of-the-line future-proof ...   read

Disintegration might be setting a record, but it's not the kind of record you want to set. In November, publisher Private Division is shutting down Disintegration's multiplayer servers. That's alarmingly quick. The game ...   read

It feels like head-turning stuff has been happening all over the gaming news cycle lately. Xbox finally revealed the Series S and gave us next-gen pricing and release date info. Sony followed suit yesterday with a dedicated g...   read

8===D
There are a lot of component differences between the Xbox Series X and S that warrant the $200 price gap between the two (check out this handy cheat sheet if you're still confused), However, one of the most obvious get-what-y...   read

Did you try securing a PlayStation 5 pre-order yesterday? It was -- and this is putting it mildly and really underselling the whole situation -- a clusterfuck. Retailers set their pre-order pages live at varying times after t...   read

Sony is obviously in the position of trying to sell new consoles to as many people as possible. However, when the PlayStation 5 launches on November 12 (pricing and release date plans are outlined here), Sony's not requiring ...   read

It's always big news when Ubisoft announces a new Assassin's Creed game, even though that's more or less an annual tradition at this point. It's even bigger news when Ubisoft announces a new Splinter Cell game, a fr...   read

Sony added a tremendous perk to PlayStation Plus for anyone who plans on adopting the PlayStation 5. It's especially useful for those who haven't been entrenched in the PlayStation ecosystem for a long time. Sony is making us...   read

  Watch Video Devil May Cry 5 was one of the best character action games in recent memory. So sure, it deserves to come forward a console generation with us. (As though quality is the only thing that dictates whether a game gets a ne...   read

  Watch Video The third game shown in this afternoon's PlayStation 5 showcase was technically a reveal but it didn't really feel like one. Rumors have been swirling for a long time now that Avalanche Software is working on a Harry Potter&...   read

  Watch Video Last last month, we told you about the final add-on for Left 4 Dead 2. It's not your usual DLC, though. This isn't Valve-developed, but rather Valve-sanctioned. It's a fan-made update, but it also has gotten the blessing (an...   read

Ubisoft's Gods & Monsters recently underwent some rebranding, switching its name to the demonstrably-worse Immortals Fenyx Rising a few weeks ago. It has gone over like a lead balloon. In fact, it had our team w...   read

  Watch Video Twin Mirror is nearly ready to show us what it has up its Twin Peaks-inspired sleeve. Dontnod's most bizarre game yet (probably, hopefully) is officially slated to launch before the end of the year. Revealed via this ne...   read

It took exactly 77 days. That's how long it took for Bethesda to reverse its reasonably feel-good approach to microtransactions within Fallout 76's seasons. Today marks the start of Fallout 76 Season 2, and Bethesda has ...   read

As the seasons change, Ooblets is changing too. Err, growing actually. It's nearing a major update that will add the first new region since the game launched in Early Access in July. This new area is called Nullwhere, an...   read

  Watch Video Sometimes the neatest promotions come to the places that you don't necessarily want to frequent. Cuphead continues on its march toward international conquest with a fast food crossover that'll leave you remembering that,...   read

Xbox Game Pass keeps getting stronger. The next couple of weeks see five worthwhile additions, and the headliner is up for debate based on your personal interests. Bungie has the best chance of capturing your playing time, as...   read

For a series predicated on mayhem and wackiness, Gearbox and 2K are taking quite the reasonable and straight-forward approach to moving onto next-gen consoles. There are no Control-like shenanigans to be found here. As part o...   read

  Watch Video Jordan wrote about a PlayStation 5 box art .jpg earlier today and included the sentiment "File this story under 'Mildly interesting next-gen fluff for a Friday afternoon.'" At this rate, I might as well make that an official ...   read

  Watch Video Night City is full of tough hombres who have no problem murdering anyone who gets in their way. Next week, we'll go around the classroom, and all of them will introduce themselves and say something that makes them unique and ...   read

  Watch Video It seems as though the Taiwanese rating board leaks were, in fact, a precursor to some imminent NieR Replicant news. Square Enix is using the remake/remaster/"upgrade" to make a splash at the biggest video game trade sh...   read

  Watch Video Readers, you'll have to let your intuition do the heavy lifting on this one. This is the type of story where I feel equal parts good and bad about it. It's the kind of rumor that's completely plausible yet the evidence is roo...   read

Epic has been on an absolute roll for the past month or so. Anyone who's diligent about picking up free games has gotten Into the Breach, Hitman, A Total War Saga: Troy, and Remnant from the Ashes as of late. This week h...   read

  Watch Video Xbox Game Pass is the best value in gaming. That's not its official tagline, it's just a fact. We bring it up often because you're not going to find better bang-for-you-buck with any other subscription service. However, anyone who's making use of Xbox Game Pass for PC exclusively will find their value chopped in half starting next week. On September 17, Game Pass for PC is doubling in price.   read

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Microsoft is rolling out the red carpet for the new generation of Xbox in exactly two months. If you're not so bullish on shelling out $500 for a new console, you can buy a...   read

  Watch Video Hyper Scape lives up to its name next week. Hyper hyper hyper, go go go. As part of this afternoon's Ubisoft Forward stream, we learned that free-to-play battle royale Hyper Scape is getting a limited-time Turbo Mode. I...   read

Okay, you've finally wrapped your head around the naming convention. Maybe it came naturally to you, maybe it took a little bit of time. Xbox Series S is the affordable entry-level model, Xbox Series X is the creme de la crem...   read

Disclosure: One of my roles around here is "Guy who handles retail affiliate stuff." The "Deals" tag auto-populates a disclaimer message that links in these articles usually send a little money Destructoid's way so that Kyle can keep posting Gardevoir pictures. (Maybe those two aren't directly correlated, but I really wish they were.)
