Xbox One Slim 2
This being the week of the Electronic & Entertainment Expo (E3), expect to hear a lot from the gaming world. The buzz this year is on new consoles and 4K compatability. It’s been 2 1/2 years since Sony released their PS4 (Nov. 15, 2013), Nintendo’s Wii U has been one year longer than that (November 2012), and Microsoft jumped in on Sony’s action as they debuted the Xbox One exactly one week after the PS4 (Nov. 22, 2013). Well, a day before Microsoft holds their press conference, details have emerged regarding their upcoming reveal of the new Xbox One Slim. They also took this opportunity to reveal ‘Project Scorpio,’ their new 4K gaming console. (more…)

Okay, so it’s probably not the new Star Wars trailer you’d like to see (Rogue One anyone?), but a sneak peak trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been leaked, and if you’re still in love with the seventh Star Wars movie, then you’re definitely going to love this. Copying some of the scenes portrayed in the movie’s trailers, the game looks like it will give fans the change to play as Finn, Rey, Poe Dameron and all your favorites from The Force Awakens, plus it will apparently fill in some of the blanks from the time period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Interested yet? (more…)

Christmas is coming early for gaming fans who may have always wanted to put their hands on a new Xbox One system but have bulked at the nearly $400 price tag. For you penny-pinchers, or people with penny-pinchers in your close family, circle of friends or as significant others, Microsoft is giving you a break this coming holiday season with special prices on their latest gaming system, and that includes exclusive bundle packs that feature some of this fall’s most anticipated new games. In the console wars, being the first to cut prices is usually seen as a sign of weakness, but with a successful launch last fall and over 5 million units shipped so far, it maybe that Microsoft just wants to ensure that it’s a very Xbox Xmas.
