ASUS has a new gaming monitor, the VG245H, and unlike most other monitors out there, this one isn't solely aimed at PC gamers. In truth, you could say that about any monitor with an HDMI port, though in this case, ASUS is clearly marketing the VG245H as an option for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners first and PC players second. Heck, even gamers getting their kicks through a set-top box are welcome to join. Therein lies the big pitch from ASUS, The VG245H has a pair of low input lag HDMI ports, so ASUS reckons you can connect a media player to one and a game console to another, "ASUS VG245H features...

When it comes to worldwide console sales, the PlayStation 4 holds a commanding lead over the Xbox One. Both consoles were released around the same time in late 2013, but the PlayStation 4 quickly lurched ahead with a sales lead and now has outsold the Xbox One roughly 2:1 since launch. However, perhaps Microsoft is a late bloomer as the Xbox One has been showing some muscle in the past few months versus the PlayStation 4. While we’ve seen the Xbox One beat the PlayStation 4 in a single month on a number of occasions, the former was able to topple the latter in July and in August. And according... Read more...
Following months of intense anticipation, Destiny players can finally geek it up with the game's newest expansion: Rise of Iron. While it's been said that RoI is not quite as large as The Taken King was, players shouldn't be at a loss of things to do for quite a while. If you pushed hard to hit a Light Level of 335 prior to the launch of Rise of Iron, prepare to weep as it's now unimpressive. As of today, the maximum Light Level becomes 385, and as soon as Bungie decides to release the Heroic version of the new raid, it'll jump to 400. Speaking of raid, because no one is going to be an appropriate... Read more...
If you’re a Halo fan that also wouldn’t mind getting in some higher-resolution gaming action on the PC platform, the wait is nearly over. Microsoft announced today that Halo 5: Forge, which was announced back in May, will go live for Windows 10 PCs on September 8th. Halo 5: Forge has full support for mouse and keyboard inputs (which is of course the preferred control scheme for PC gamers) and will allow you to play against up to 16 of your online friends. Best of all, as long as your gaming rig can support it, you’ll be able to enjoy up to 4K display resolutions with Halo 5: Forge. There are of... Read more...
PC and console gamers have been at odds for decades. Microsoft, however, is attempting to broker a truce. The company insists that its “Play Anywhere” initiative for PC will not kill XBox One gaming. Play Anywhere is a mechanism that would allow someone to purchase one copy of a game and have it playable on both the Xbox One and PC. The initiative was launched this past June ahead of the Windows 10 Anniversary update. Gamers can purchase games such as Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 now. Ark: Survival Evolved, Gears of War 4, and Halo Wars 2 will be available later this year. Some... Read more...
If you love Xbox One games, but enjoy gaming on your PC, there is now a simpler solution. Microsoft just announced that the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is the first PC with fully integrated Xbox Wireless. This is the first device with such an integration built within the physical chassis, without the need for a USB dongle. Will Tuttle, Xbox Wire Editor in Chief, remarked, “At Xbox we believe in playing the games you want, where you want, with the people you want. By expanding the Xbox Wireless ecosystem with new accessories and PCs such as the IdeaCentre Y710, gamers have more... Read more...
Microsoft just acquired Seattle-based company Beam in order to enhance the Xbox One experience. Beam will enable viewers to directly participate in a live streamer's gameplay and broadcast.  Matt Salsamendi, CEO and co-founder of Beam remarked, “As part of Xbox, we’ll be able to scale faster than we’ve ever been able to before. We’re expanding the team, bolstering our infrastructure, and most importantly, continuing to grow and support the amazing community at Beam.”Beam began in January 2016 as a “small group of passionate streamers and an awesome community”. It won Startup Battlefield and... Read more...
The $299 2TB Xbox One S was the first SKU made available for Microsoft’s refreshed console, and it remains the only console that you can actually get your hands on at this moment. The 500GB and 1TB SKUs are available for pre-order right now, but won’t arrive in stores until August 23rd. We always knew that the 2TB model was considered the “Launch Edition” and that it would initially be available in limited quantities until production of the 500GB and 1TB SKUs was fully ramped up. However, what we didn’t know was that the 2TB SKU won’t be restocked once inventory is completely depleted. Microsoft... Read more...
First announced at E3 2016, Doom’s Unto the Evil DLC is now available for download on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. The download, which is actually the first DLC for Doom, brings with its three new multiplayer maps (Offering, Cataclysm and Ritual) to keep you busy. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a new playable demon (Harvester) and a new weapon (UAC EMG Pistol) to wreak havoc with. The PartyPlay system also allows anyone to join in on Unto the Evil fragging action as long as one of your participating “party” friends has purchased the DLC. There are also new taunts, armor sets and hack... Read more...
The Xbox One S officially launched today, and it’s an evolutionary upgrade for Microsoft’s current generation of consoles. The Xbox One S is 40 percent smaller than its predecessor, gains an IR blaster and includes a slightly revised wireless controller that now features built-in Bluetooth connectivity. But what about the hardware inside the console? What’s been changed to allow the console to support 4K scaling and HDR gaming? The folks at Digital Foundry decided to do some digging and we now have a pretty good idea of how the Xbox One S compares to the Xbox One in performance. First of all, the... Read more...
With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update set to launch on August 2, it seems Microsoft's Xbox had interest in beating their desktop counterparts to the punch by releasing the Xbox One Anniversary Update right now. It's probably a smart move on Microsoft's part to roll out the releases like this, as these platform versions are meant to complement each other. If you have an Xbox One, it means there will be no waiting to take advantage of the interoperability between the two platforms, once you upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10. So what's included? Well, if you enjoy talking to artificial... Read more...
If you want to get your hands on Microsoft’s brand new Xbox One S console, the fastest way to do it is to grab a 2TB bundle, which will be available on August 2nd. However, the 2TB Xbox One also happens to be the most expensive version, coming in at $399. If $399 is out of your budget range for a new console, Microsoft just announced the availability date for the two cheaper Xbox One S consoles: the $349 1TB and $299 500GB models. Both will be available on August 23rd, although pre-orders for both consoles open today. The Xbox One S Madden NFL 17 Bundle comes with (of course) a copy of Madden NFL... Read more...
When it comes to Microsoft’s gaming consoles, the upcoming Xbox One S is the “new hotness”, so to speak. The Xbox One S is 40 percent slimmer than its predecessor and includes a new wireless controller (which now supports Bluetooth), an additional USB port, 4K support, and an IR blaster. It will also be available in three capacities: 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB). To make room on brick and mortar (and online) store shelves, Microsoft is once again cutting the price of the current Xbox One to drive sales. The entry-level 500GB console was reduced from $349 to $299 ahead of E3, and dropped again to $279 in... Read more...
There are a slew of reasons fans of fighting games should look forward to EVO each year, but this year, there are two special ones. For starters, this year's event marks the 20th of its kind, and it also marks the first time Street Fighter V is featured at the event. As the SF series has been such a hallmark of EVO over the years, it's easy to understand why a brand-new release in the franchise creates such a fevered buzz. The fact that Street Fighter V was a cause of a lot of excitement at EVO is interesting simply thanks to the fact that the game didn't have the smoothest launch. Some would argue... Read more...
