EA Kills Off Origin

Origin to be replaced by more generic naming convention.

First, EA ditched their EA Access and Origin Access branding in favor of EA Play. This happened almost exactly one month ago in August 2020. Now, EA is ready to ditch their Origin desktop client with something a little more generic.

When you think of the heyday of Tony Hawk titles, you probably think back to the games prior to weird skateboard controllers and the abysmal Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background.

    Xbox One Bundles Now Starting at $299

    Microsoft seems to have quietly reduced the price of the Xbox One down to $299 (USD) for the 500GB bundles. This is a $50 price reduction. The 1TB bundles are now $319, compared to the $369 it was previously.

    Rumor: Xbox E3 2016 Plans Leaked

    This is a rumor that should be taken with a grain of salt. A posting on the Xbox One subreddit says that a trailer teasing Microsoft's Xbox E3 plans will be going live soon.
