This is Microsoft’s Xbox One S All Digital Edition console

We've been expecting something to turn up for a while and now it looks as though the cat may be out of the bag. Images of what appears to be Microsoft's disc-less console have turned up online, giving us some idea of what the console -- known as the Xbox One S All Digital -- could look like.

Halo is finally (finally!) coming to PC with The Master Chief Collection

Prior to last night's announcement, there have only ever been two Halo games released on the PC. That'd be Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2. Everything else after that was launched on Microsoft's Xbox consoles exclusively. Until now. Microsoft has announced that PC gamers will be getting their twitchy trigger fingers on Halo: The Master Chief Collection shortly. What's more, it'll be available via ...[Read More]

DStv Now app available for Xbox One, some Hisense TVs

One of the biggest issues with DStv Now, Multichoice’s streaming service based on their DStv satellite television offering, is that the offering was limited to certain devices. Any time there’s a new platform added, though, DStv gets a little bit better. Guess what? It just got a little bit better. Multichoice has announced that DStv Now is finally available on the Xbox One, via its ow...[Read More]

Black Friday for gamers – PS4 and Xbox Edition

It’s that time of the year again, when South Africans try to figure out how to do this Black Friday thing. If there’s one piece of advice we can give you it’s that online shopping is your friend. Especially if you’re a gamer who’d rather get some sessions in than face the stampedes. Luckily, PlayStation and Xbox have launched their annual Black Friday sale already, and it’ll run until after payday...[Read More]

Microsoft might be launching a disc-less version of the Xbox One next year

Microsoft might be working on something a little unusual, even for them. A report from Brad Sams of Thurrott.com, who has been accurate with Xbox info in the past, claims that the company is launching yet another Xbox One console in 2019. The prime difference is that this new console will be lacking a disc drive. Yup. No drive for physical media, just a hard drive — which would allow Microso...[Read More]

PUBG free on Xbox One for now, and will likely come to PS4

Almost exactly a year ago popular battle royale first-person shooter, Player Unknown’s Battlegounds (PUBG), made its debut on console — the Xbox One, that is. And now it’s free on Xbox One, for a while at least. We will also likely see it release on PS4 soon, according to rumour. Can’t have the PS4 players missing out on those chicken dinners, can we? Previously only available on PC, P...[Read More]

Microsoft announces Project xCloud, their own game streaming service

The world is quickly moving towards not owning any physical content — we’ve gone from downloading and copying movies and series from various sources, to streaming everything on Netflix and Showmax. So what’s the obvious next step? Streaming games, obviously — well, that’s what PlayStation, Google and now Microsoft believe. Recently, Google launched a game streaming service test c...[Read More]

Onrush review (Xbox One) – What if Overwatch was a car?

If you’ve been missing the largely defunct Motorstorm, a PlayStation-exclusive racing title from the heady days of the PS2 and PS3, you’re probably going to be feeling pretty good about Onrush. Onrush is a vehicular combat title that isn’t what you’re expecting from this sort of game — at least at first glance. A relic from the past Onrush‘s Motorstorm roots are...[Read More]

Vampyr review (Xbox One) – How much of a monster are you?

The streets of 1918 London are not a safe place to be, whether you’re a citizen, a gang member, a vampire, or a vampire hunter. As it happens, you’re Jonathan Reid, a doctor and newly-turned vampire who has to unravel how he came to be a blood-sucking monster. You’re also a major reason why the streets are unsafe, along with the outbreak of the Spanish Flu epidemic. Welcome to the wonderfully dark...[Read More]
