Is the Xbox One Changing Minds?

After all the hate the Xbox One got here last year, having a much delayed release, it’s understandable that many moved to the PS4 side of life. However, now with the console having a local launch date, with the Kinect free model, the price and of course now the bundle options, will things turn around? Has it changed your mind? It certainly has got me, and many others on the team thinking. The dela...

Remember the R6299 local Xbox One price? It comes with games if you pre-order!

You might recall us reporting on the local cost for the Xbox One in South Africa later this year  on 23 September? Well, the deal just got a whole lot sweeter. If you pre-order your console you get games thrown in at no extra cost! That’s right, it’s launching with the following two bundles: Fans will be able to choose to pre-order a bundle, which will include the new Xbox One console ...

A new Afro Samurai is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One

It feels like light years ago that we last had the chance to dismember foes with our sword in Afro Samurai. The Japanese Anime series translated well to the gaming format as it came bundled with the unique Japanese art style and narrative. At the time it received a mixed response whereby some absolutely loved it and others did not quite pick up on all the hype. All we know is that it left a mark (...

Here is the PES 2015 teaser trailer

Over the last few years PES lost a bit of ground to the muscle that’s EA’s FIFA, but they’re at it again and launching another football game. Last year Konami skipped the current generation by releasing the game on last generation formats – PS3 and Xbox 360. Hopefully the jump to current generation will be good enough to capture the hearts of football fans around the world ...

Destiny Beta lands on Xbox One and Xbox 360 end of July

Xbox players have been watching PlayStation players get all the fun when it comes to Destiny. Just recently many PlayStation players had the opportunity to player the Alpha version of the game (we same them sharing on Twitter and bragging all over the place). Xbox owners will be glad to hear that they will also get a bit of the action towards the end of July. A trailer has been spotted that confir...

No Man’s Sky is not exclusive to PS4

After the mouth-watering footage we all witnessed at the Sony E3 media briefing No Man’s Sky is very high up on everyone’s ‘must have’ list. Until now it’s not been clear whether Sony’s had made arrangements with the developers to make it exclusive to their format. Remember the ‘Sony’s <3 Indie’s’ campaign? After the emotional applause...

Sony “were dancing in the aisles” with Xbox One $499 announcement last year

Surprisingly it does not feel that long ago that Microsoft announced the price of the Xbox One at $499.  Sony announced their console at $100 cheaper later that day and the rest is history. What no one, outside of insiders, knows is that Sony all had their own celebrations behind the scenes when Microsoft announced that price. Unsurprisingly the Xbox One has dropped by $100, which is great for the...

What game pushed each console to its limits? (Part 4 of 5)

We all just about lose our heads when we receive bits of ‘next generation’ console news towards the end of a current console cycle. And for good reason, at that stage the previous generation strains under the pressure to keep up with the PC format (yes, I know), as that gradually grows and improves when it comes to hardware. Question is: What game pushed the various consoles to their l...

A Bit of Valiant Hearts For Your… Heart?

I will confess I knew very little about Valiant Hearts prior to E3, but I am told this is a game to look out for when it releases later this month. It’s a title that has some interesting characters that are obviously created for the game, but the setting in which it takes place may feel a little too real. The setting is of course based on World War 1, and don’t let the animated visuals...

Halo 2 Anniversary to Include Some Secrets

FPS

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition was a sublime rendition of what was a special game and it seems as though 343 are intent on giving Halo 2 Anniversary the same treatment. We already know that the Anniversary Edition will be fully remastered which means it will look amazing all these years after the initial release. We also know that all the maps and elements that made up its incredible mul...

FIFA UT Legends Exclusive to Xbox – Some Clarity

There seems to be a bit of confusion growing on the internet around this. At first Garth mentioned it to me thinking that EA’s most popular mode, Ultimate Teams, would be exclusive to the Microsoft consoles for FIFA 15. Since then I have seen a few people confused by the very same information and a bit of hate thrown at EA for this from some Sony fans. Let me allay those fears and explain th...

Destiny (Alpha) Preview

FPS

The Destiny Alpha has just finished (unless by the time this goes live it was extended further) and if you follow any gaming individuals on Twitter or have been looking out for some feedback you probably haven’t seen a single complaint yet. Remember, this is an ‘Alpha’ version of the game, which Bungie are using to test things out. Alpha meaning – it is a relatively early build o...
