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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I genuinely don’t get certain hackers. There’s a  difference between uncovering hidden information, and being a spiteful little bastard who makes life hell for everybody. And that level of douchebaggery is something that the Xbox, PlayStation and Electronic Sports League have just experienced.
