Some continued to throw tantrums, others called for boycots, while still others did their best "I studied the blade" impersonation.

    Microsoft seems to have gotten a leg up on other peers such as Sony and Nintendo. The company has already set up a joint venture with China's first listed new media content provider BesTV New Media Co in September 2013 and located the venture in the zone. Foreign ga

    Forza 5 Update Lets You Immediately Access the Car DLC You Purchased

    In the past, if you purchased new DLC cars with real currency in a Forza title, you were not given immediate access to those cars. Instead, the DLC purchase simply allowed you to purchase the cars using in-game currency when you had enough money to do so.

    Michael Abrash Leaves Valve for Oculus VR

    Michael Abrash, the man that was largely responsible for Valve's push into the realm of virtual reality, has left Valve and has now joined up at Oculus.
