Posted in Xbox One by Darrin Olson on May 14th, 2014

Microsoft Xbox One Without KinectMicrosoft has announced on Tuesday that it is now offering the Xbox One gaming console without the motion tracking Kinect add-on. This is an interesting move for Microsoft, undoubtedly in an attempt to boost sales. The Kinect was a major selling point and a differentiation with competitors.

The console without Kinect drops the price down $100 to $399, putting it right inline on pricing with its major rival the Sony Playstation 4. The Xbox One is available for pre-order now on Amazon at the $399 price.

In addition to this news, Phil Spencer from Xbox announced on Tuesday a new program called Games with Gold providing free games to Xbox Live Gold Subscribers.

Xbox outsells Wii and PS3 in February

Posted in Microsoft by Shane McGlaun on March 12th, 2010

I have all three game consoles in my house and my son and his friends spend lots of time playing games around here most weeks. When it comes time to play games they all typically want to play the PS3 the most. The Wii is the second choice and they rarely play the Xbox 360.

Despite the preferences of a bunch of 7-year-olds, the Xbox 360 has taken the top spot for sales in February according to NPD. NPD’s numbers show that Microsoft sold 422,000 Xbox 360 consoles; the Wii was second with 397,900 units sold.

XBox Millennium Falcon modCheck out this XBox Millennium Falcon mod that looks like an Imperial version of the ship. You can make one too thanks to the complete instructions provided. It’s not an easy mod though. You’ll need to know how to grind with a dremel and solder and do some wiring.

But in the end you’ll get an XBox inside of a classic Kenner 1979 Millennium Falcon toy and all of that hard work will have payed off. Though I’m not sure there will be room for Han and Chewie any longer.

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on August 13th, 2009

section8-sbI am a big fan of video games and while they tend to cost at least $60 each, it’s still not a bad deal considering how long you can play a game. You can spend $60 at the movies and only be occupied for a few hours whereas a game can be fun indefinitely.

SouthPeak Games has announced that its new game for the PC and Xbox 360 will support X Server functionality allowing players to run their own dedicated game servers on a Windows PC. Each X Server can handle up to 32 players at once allowing for large multiple player matches on the Xbox 360 console.

External Blu-ray drive coming to Xbox?

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2009

Microsoft denies Blu-ray player rumors for the Xbox 360This one is interesting, even though we’ve heard it before. Just as Toshiba is announcing that it will be delivering a Blu-ray drive of it’s own, Microsoft could follow suit. At least that’s the word on the street.

The big M might be readying a Blu-ray drive add-on for the popular Xbox 360 gaming console. The company did offer an external HD DVD drive before, built by Toshiba. The new drive is seen as more feasible, both because of Toshiba’s support and cost reductions, which could make a USB Blu-ray reader affordable.

Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 hits milestone

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on May 6th, 2009

codmappackI am a big Call of Duty fan and while I prefer Modern Warfare to the World War II setting, the most recent Call of Duty: World at War game was lots of fun. I don’t like to play my shooters on consoles personally; I stick to the PC for this type of game.

Lots of gamers prefer console systems though and Activision has announced today that Map Pack 1 for Call of Duty: World at War has hit a milestone. The pack has been downloaded over 2 million times combined on Xbox Live and the Sony Playstation Store.

EA bringing Dante’s Inferno game to PSP, Xbox, and PS3

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on April 22nd, 2009

dantesinferno-sbDante’s inferno was one of the books I had to read in literature class back in the day. I can’t say it was one of my favorite books and I wished it were a movie instead so I didn’t actually have to read it. Students today can crib for the quiz with a new video game from EA based on the book.

The game is based on part one of the Dante Alighieri classic, “The Divine Comedy.” The game will put players on a mission to move through the nine circles of hell including high school, college … I mean limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery.

Rockstar says Max Payne 3 is coming this winter

Posted in Games by Shane McGlaun on March 24th, 2009

maxpayne3-sbI am an avid PC gamer and one of my all time favorite PC games was the original Max Payne. The shooter had an original story, great graphics, and some very innovative game play with its Bullet Time feature. The game was so popular it spawned a feature film recently that honestly sucked, not Marky Mark’s finest work.

Rockstar has announced that Max Payne 3 is coming this winter, we can probably expect the game in time for holiday shopping. Payne is still out for revenge for the death of his family in the third installment from the franchise.
