The Xbox One is finally picking up in sales. It has launched in a bunch of new territories, including South Africa, and the numbers are looking up. Microsoft has triumphantly announced their sales numbers for the last period, but it's still not looking too inspiring compared to the competition.
The Xbox One is a pretty great console, but I wish there was a way to share awesome screenshots online easily. The PS4 has that nailed down, and it seemed like the November Xbox One update would finally bring social screen sharing functionality to the console. Turns out that's still going to take a while.
We tend to shy away from posting hacker related stories here on Lazygamer because we feel that giving them the extra attention just isn’t necessary. This post is an exception though, as four hackers have been charged with theft of intellectual property from corporations such as Microsoft, Epic Games, Valve, and even the U.S. Army.
It’s like everyone has forgotten how counting works. First Nvidia jump from their 700-series straight into the 900-series, and now Microsoft has done the same thing. Yesterday, the software giant formally revealed Windows 10, curiously skipping out on the 9 everyone was expecting.
The Xbox One was revealed to the world last year just prior to E3 and was instantly panned worldwide because of the insane DRM and always online requirements. Thankfully, Microsoft woke up and removed their idiotic DRM and online requirements and the Xbox One was released in the US towards the end of last year.
Welcome back to part 2 of our look back at the history of Xbox. By now, you’ve probably read part one and will want to read it again. That’s ok, that’s cool, we’ll wait for you. The Xbox One launches locally on September 23, and we’ve already covered the foundation that the very first console laid down when it launched in 2001. But it was the Xbox 360 that proves that Microsoft could stand with the big boys, and make gaming even more mainstream. Let’s put our hands on our hips, jump to the left and travel back in time.
Ever heard of D4? If yo have a keen memory for games that really didn't have a marketing campaign, you might remember seeing the Xbox One exclusive back at E3 last year. Since then it hasn't really kicked up a fuss, which makes the surprise reveal of its super close release date so weird.
Before the local release of the PlayStation 4, we featured a series of articles looking into the history of PlayStation – so why not give it another go on the eve of the Xbox One’s local release? Let’s take a brief look at the history of the console that started it all for the Xbox brand.
The big news at the end of the day yesterday was the confirmation that Microsoft now owns Mojang, the company in charge of Minecraft. Many people are prepared to call Notch all kinds of names, and I probably can't stop you. But his reasons for getting out make sense.
The rumor mill is grinding again, and this time it's got something quite juicy in its grasp. According to The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is looking to buy Mojang for quite a sizable chunk of cash, and the deal could be signed this week.
Microsoft has been sending out monthly Xbox One updates like clockwork since the console's launch, and it's something that has to be admired. Every month Xbox One owners can rest assured that some new feature is on its way, and October is no different. In fact, October is bringing a feature that really should've been there from the start.
But it won’t be Age Of Empires 4. HEYOH! Instead, it’ll be a new mobile game dubbed Age Of Empires: Castle Siege that is less click click and more touchy touchy.
ID@Xbox isn't just an awful name - it's Microsoft's attempt at helping indies get the support and exposure they need to be successful. In fact, unlike the other indies that Geoff and I had to go visit at the megabooth, I actually ended up with an appointment to see more about Below - already proof that ID@Xbox is worthwhile for this indie.
This year’s Gamescom won’t be remembered for surprise reveals or gigantic game showings. Instead it’ll be remembered for the PR storm surrounding Microsoft and Rise of the Tomb Raider. A lot of people are claiming that Microsoft is now trying to buy exclusives, something Sony says they’ll never do. Except, they already do buy some exclusives. Sort of.
