The time it takes your Xbox Series X/S console to boot up is about to get a bit faster. Microsoft was able to cut several seconds off the boot sequence by creating a shorter bootup animation. Gamers can be some of the most impatient people on the planet. If a new console or gaming PC takes more than a few seconds... Read more...
It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 came out, and even harder to fathom that they're still difficult to find in stock. That is, unless you're willing to pay an obscene markup by a marketplace seller. Forget that nonsense because if it's the Xbox Series X... Read more...
It has been almost 18 months since the initial release of the Xbox Series X in November 2020. Unfortunately for Microsoft, most of that time has shown that its new console hasn't been quite as desirable as the alternatives for at least ten of those months. Alternatives such as the Sony PlayStation 5, and Nintendo... Read more...
As you see Geralt wandering through the lands, you can "toss a coin to your Witcher!" So the song goes, but Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 owners need not apply.

I don't find my Xbox Series X to be particularly loud, especially over the rumbles of my soundbar and subwoofer or gaming headset. However, navigating the user interface is a different story. Various sound effects adorn the Xbox Series X and if you'd rather not hear them, you now have access to an expanded set of mute controls. Finding Read more...
The console shortage might not be completely over, but there are signs the situation is definitely improving.

Microsoft has teamed up with Paramount Pictures to give away a custom Xbox Series S console themed after Sonic and Knuckles, and it looks pretty swank. The controllers, though?

When you woke up this morning, you probably didn't expect the Xbox Series X to be yours for the taking, assuming you've been trying to hunt one down.

Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo are, obviously, all names of renaissance artists. However, these awesome artists share their names with more recent radical reptiles of the mutant variety. We're talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, of course!

Can you believe that we're already into Year 2 of the latest generation game consoles? Be that as it may, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X remain as elusive as ever, due to a combination of factors (chip shortage, rabid demand, and scalpers, mostly).

Have you been trying in vain to score a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X console? What about a Nintendo Switch OLED, or a rare set of kicks from Nike?

Congratulations to any of you who scored a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or Nintendo Switch OLED for Christmas. Finding one of those consoles in stock is the hard part.

Don't blame Santa if you didn't wake up to a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or Nintendo Switch OLED on Christmas Day.

There's some good news, though—more restocks are on the way, giving you more chances to score... Read more...
The latest generation game consoles have been some of the most difficult items to find in stock this year, and that's been true of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 ever since they launched last year.

Finding a current-generation game console in stock from a first-party retailer continues to be a difficult task. Even harder is nailing down a limited edition variant.

Cyber Monday is technically over, but let's keep that a secret from retailers that continue to offer discounts.

If it was up to us, Mac Jones would adorn the cover of Madden NFL 22 instead of Patrick Mahomes (yeah, we tend to get overly excited about the Patriots around these parts).
