KaraokeDAM Coming To The XBox ONE In Japan

Karaoke is a big deal in Japan. We know this. So do Microsoft and they are set to have a variety of unique Xbox One apps for Japan. These apps include a NicoNico viewer as well as a localized Amazon movie viewer. More importantly, the Japanese Xbox One service will also include a KaraokeDAM which consists of a comprehensive library of songs from the DAM karaoke booths across Japan. The KaraokeDAM ...

Hands-On: Xbox One

After a very lengthy wait, since E3 2013, I’ve finally had the opportunity to get my mitts on the Xbox One. Let’s not beat around the bush, up to this point the console has received its fair share of controversy. Everything Microsoft did was wrong, and everything Sony on the other hand did was perfect in the eyes of the consumers. It’s as if this generation all but changed roles ...

The Gamers Den – You buying the Xbox One at launch?

Graeme Selvan, the PR guy at Xbox South Africa, joins us on the show to discuss the upcoming launch of the Xbox One, that happens in under a month on 23 September. David, as always, goes of on a graphics rampage, while Garth brings up a title that he’s interested in that we all forgot about. Are you going to be buying the Xbox One at launch? What games will you buy along with your purchase?

Looks like Silent Hills will not be exclusive to the PS4

After discovering that the Playable Teaser (P.T.) was in fact a new Silent Hill game from Hideo Kojima, named Silent Hills, everyone was caught off-guard. No one expected that at all. Since then we’ve had several local players share their thoughts on Twitter, whereby most would shut the game down after about 10 mins of playing (if that). So, Hideo is definitely pulling all the right strings....

This video details network media playback capabilities for the Xbox One

The current generation of consoles are absolutely fantastic, only problem is that they’re not media players based off your network. Sure you can play Blu Ray videos and plug in USB drives, but you can’t stream media via your network in your house. For Xbox One owners that is soon about to change. Select members are currently receiving access to the media playback and will ultimately ro...

Console exclusive characters to appear in Mortal Kombat X DLC

This is nothing new for the genre. We’ve seen console exclusive characters since Namco started the trend with the release of SoulCalibur 2 on PS2, Xbox and Gamecube. The PS2 version had Heihachi, Xbox got Spawn and the GameCube saw Link from the Legend of Zelda. Later on SoulCalbiur IV saw Darth Vader and Yoda being used on PS3 and Xbox 360, but  ultimately ended up being available on both c...

Gamescom 2014: Xbox Media Briefing. All the trailers here!

The Xbox conference has come and gone and we’ve received some juicy information that we have here for you to watch, well, we have the trailers. Big bombs were dropped in the form of Rise of the Tomb Raider being exclusive on the Xbox One (though we’re not quite sure if it’s timed or just completely exclusive). There are also three special edition consoles announced and we’v...

Updated: Rise of the Tomb Raider is exclusive to Xbox One

Update 2: According to Phil Spencer it’s a  “has a duration”, but he’s not saying how long it is. There is hope PlayStation Tomb Raider fans. Update: It’s just been confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider will come to the Xbox 360 alongside the Xbox One version. Here’s the source. Original: Microsoft had the gaming community up in arms when they announced that Ri...

Your Local Gamescom Press Conference Schedule with stream links!

Gamescom probably doesn’t get quite the same hype that E3 does, but it is very much a huge part of the year and some even believe that it is better and bigger than E3. We can hardly argue about more shows giving us a look at the games to come and all the awesome things happening in the industry we love so much. Gamescom kicks off tomorrow in Cologne, Germany so be sure to keep checking the S...

This is why Sunset Overdrive is not coming to PS4

At a quick glance the rest of the year is not looking too great for exclusive titles. It’s perhaps also something to do with the fact that the Xbox One has not launched in South Africa yet. Once it does there will be quite a few exclusives on the console, though some of those are nearly a year old in other countries. There is however Sunset Overdrive, which is yet to launch. The once ‘...

Why is cross-platform gaming still a problem in 2014? I’m tired of this crap

It’s something that’s bugged me for quite some time quite honestly. About three weeks ago I posted a news piece on why Destiny will not support cross-platform gaming. Then last week I was discussing a Call of Duty session online with a friend and, because we own different platforms, we were denied that privilege. So why the f#$k do we still have to live with this incompatibility in 201...

6.5 Million Guardians Were Created During the Destiny Beta

The Destiny Beta has been closed for a while now but we’re still itching to play the game (September can’t come soon enough), and by the looks of things many other people might agree. According to Bungie’s Destiny Beta Infographic a total of 4 638 937 gamers played the game during the time it was open – the most amount of players their studio has ever seen during a beta. Th...
