This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Microsoft revealed the future of gaming in in November of 2010 and it was called the Kinect. This motion-tracking camera accessory for the Xbox 360 was supposed to usher in an era of controlling games with your body, but that never happened. Its newest consoles need an adapter for the Kinect, but you won’t find that anymore. After being out of stock for several months, the Xbox One Kinect adapter has officially been discontinued by…

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Microsoft rolled out a new version of the Xbox One just in time for the holiday season, and seasoned console modder Eddie Zarick has already done what he does best — turned it into a laptop. In the hands of Mr. Zarick, the Xbox One X (See on Amazon) becomes the “Xbook One X.” It’s the Xbox One X in a laptop form factor.

Sony’s PS4 Still Outsold Microsoft in November, Despite the Xbox One X

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Microsoft’s Xbox One X debuted in early November, to muted optimism and mildly positive reviews. The general summary was that the console absolutely had promise, but questions remained regarding how robustly it would support 4K rendering or increased visual effects. Microsoft has been outsold by Sony more than 2:1, and the company is looking for a way to reverse that trend. November sales reports suggest they may not have hit on a winning formula just…

Counterpoint: Why You Shouldn’t Buy or Upgrade to the Xbox One X

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Yesterday, our own Joel Hruska wrote a post arguing for the merits of the Xbox One X. His premise is rock solid, and the hardware is very impressive, but this line in his article stood out to me: “When I say the Xbox One X is worth buying, that doesn’t mean it makes sense for literally every person right now.” I couldn’t agree more. There’s a decent number of 4K-loving early adopters out there that…

Why You Should Buy or Upgrade to an Xbox One X

This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. Microsoft’s Xbox One X drops on Tuesday and it’s easily the strongest console ever built. Its GPU sports higher clocks and additional cores, its CPU is clocked a full 1.3x faster than the old Xbox One, and its unified GDDR5 memory offers vastly more bandwidth (and a much simpler memory architecture) than the Xbox One’s 32MB of cache + quad-channel DDR3 memory design. Hardware design, however, isn’t the entire story. Because the Xbox One X…
