Microsoft’s brand new, slimmer Xbox One S leaked yesterday afternoon, just ahead of today’s E3 keynote. Painted in a shade of “Robot White”, the console is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One and can now stand vertically (Microsoft includes a stand in the box if you want go this route). There’s also support for 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) content, which means that you can take advantage of 4K UHD Blu-rays that are starting to trickle into the market. This will also open the door for 4K gaming in the future on the Xbox One S Although its absence likely won’t be missed by many, the dedicated... Read more...
We’ve been hearing rumors about the Xbox Slim for weeks, and just ahead of E3, the console has leaked to the internet. The official name of the console is Xbox One S, and it’s quite the looker. The scant details that are provided with the leaked images confirm what we’ve heard in our previous reporting on the console: it’s roughly 40 percent smaller than the current Xbox One and it comes with a 2TB hard drive. In addition, the Xbox One S supports 4K Ultra HD video and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content along with a more streamlined wireless controller design. Microsoft is even tossing in a stand...

Scheduled fixes for the Xbox Store didn't go quite as planned for Microsoft heading into the weekend. For a short period, the Fallout 4 Digital Deluxe Bundle was being given away for free as a digital download to Xbox One owners, and as you might imagine, many gamers pounced on the deal. It was inevitable that Microsoft would catch wind of the pricing error, and now that it has, licenses are being revoked.The bundle includes every bit of DLC Bethesda has ever released for Fallout 4, including Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop, and Automatron, along with a Season Pass for all future Fallout 4 DLC,...

Exactly one month ago today, Dice took the veil off of the next major Battlefield title. The oddly-named Battlefield 1 will take a break from more futuristic combat to bring us way back to the World War I era. While World War II-styled games used to be poked fun at due to the sheer amount available, it seems now is the right time to give ourselves a new-age WW1 experience. To say that the hype surrounding this game is huge would be an understatement. While we've learned the hard lesson of not putting our complete faith into launch trailers, Battlefield 1's was so good that even if it doesn't live... Read more...
We first brought you news last week that the Windows 10 Anniversary Update would be coming to the Xbox One shortly in preview form. Well, Microsoft today not only officially announced that the update will land this summer for everyone, but that it will actually be available in preview form for Xbox Preview participants “in the coming weeks.” Perhaps the biggest change that will come with the new Xbox One update is the arrival of the Cortana digital assistant for the console. Gamers in the U.S., U.K., France, Italy, Germany and Spain will be the first to take advantage of Cortana, and will be able... Read more...
In Microsoft's ongoing quest to unify devices from different categories to a single platform, it's working on an update to the Xbox One that will prepare it for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. The Xbox One update isn't live yet, but Microsoft is currently sending out invites to select Preview members to sign up for the "Latest Xbox One Experience," as it's being called. The update will eventually roll out to all Preview members, but at this early stage, Microsoft is inviting users who earned the most points by submitting feedback in the previous wave, according to a Twitter post by Xbox Preview...

E3 is still a few weeks away, but Microsoft is kicking off the festivities early with another price cut for its Xbox One gaming console. Nearly all of the Xbox One bundles have been given a $50 price cut, which means that base 500GB bundles now start at $299. The price cuts even extend to more expensive offerings like the Xbox One Rainbow Six Siege Bundle (1TB), which falls from $369 to $319, while the Xbox One Rainbow Six Siege Bundle (1TB) drops from $499 to $449. The new pricing is in effect right now, so if you’ve been sitting on the fence with regards to purchasing an Xbox One (and don’t want... Read more...
We already know that Sony is making a big play towards virtual reality (VR) gaming with PlayStation VR, and according to recent rumors, Microsoft won’t be too far behind. Previous reports have suggested that Microsoft will support VR (via perhaps the Oculus Rift) in its upcoming, more powerful version of the Xbox One (codenamed Scorpio). Further confirmation of this VR-enabled console came from an unlikely source: the official website for E3. A new category entitled “Xbox One Virtual Reality” has been added to the mix. Accompanying this revelation is news that Rebellion, Maximum Games, Readily... Read more...
It looks like Windows Phone could soon be enjoying an update that lets Xbox One gamers stream their favorite titles over to their mobile devices. As many revelations have been made known lately, this one was discovered by a reddit user who quickly revealed their discovery on the website. It's not a light one, either; there has since been other people to back the original founder up. When a friend messaged them on their Windows smartphone, reddit user eric5949 accidentally clicked on the name of the game that it was attached to and noticed interesting wording: "Play from console". Normally, this... Read more...
Xbox One rumors are flying around like crazy today, and if the reports are accurate, we have a lot to look forward to from the Xbox hardware division over the next year. The first product supposedly on tap is a new Xbox One Slim, which is due to break cover at this year’s E3. This console will reportedly be smaller and thinner than the current Xbox One and will include a larger 2TB hard drive. With the exception of the downsized external dimensions and the larger HDD, all of the other key hardware specs are expected to remain largely the same. It’s also being reported that this console will be... Read more...
Cross-network play between the Xbox One gaming console and PCs has finally arrived. After first announcing the functionality back in March, Microsoft today revealed that gamers running the Xbox One and Steam PC versions of Rocket League will be able to take part in the first cross-network play matches starting today at 6pm EST. Rocket League started off life on the PlayStation 4 and Steam gaming platforms, but didn’t make the trek over to the Xbox One until this past February. Rocket League players with a PlayStation 4 have already been able duke it out with their PC counterparts, so it’s nice... Read more...
Microsoft's Project Spark had a ton of potential. It was built up (no pun) to be the ultimate builder game, allowing users to create their own worlds, mechanics, and fun. The game even had the benefit of being available on both the Xbox One and PC, but alas, it has proven to be one of those games that just wasn't mean to go on forever. In an official post, Microsoft and Team Dakota jointly announced that Project Spark support would be discontinued, and as of right now, the game is no longer available for download. If you already have the game downloaded, you'll be able to continue to play until... Read more...
This past fall, Microsoft surprised the world when it unveiled that a huge number of Xbox 360 games would be playable on the Xbox One. This even came as a surprise to Sony, which unveiled an arguably lackluster version of backwards compatibility, where gamers need to repurchase the games. When Microsoft released the first 100 or so titles for backwards compatibility on the Xbox One, it was hard to tell just how far the company would take things. However, all we really had to do was look to the Xbox 360 itself, which supported a huge number of original Xbox titles (important for those wanting to... Read more...
A couple of months ago, Microsoft revealed that it would begin making a far greater push into gaming on Windows 10, and was planning to do that by merging the Xbox and PC worlds. At that time, the company promised that PC gamers would finally be able to play Forza on the platform of their choice, with a special Windows 10 version called Forza Motorsport 6: Apex. Since that announcement, quite a bit has happened. Despite Tim Sweeney's absolute distaste of UWP, Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform, we saw the introduction of Killer Instinct last month, and Rocket League becoming playable against...
