  • Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    in News

    Anthem Falls Out of Top 49 Most Played Games on Xbox

    It's being beat by games that have been out for far longer.

    This week, Microsoft updated their most played games section on their store. These are the most played games in the Xbox ecosystem from 1 to 49. Why 49 and not 50? How am I supposed to know? The important part here is that Anthem has now fallen off of this most played list.

    The last handful of games on the list include Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Borderlands 2, Brawlhalla, and Battlefield 1. That's Battlefield 1, not the more recent Battlefield 5 which is actually looking to be the 23rd most played game on the...

    Minecraft Earth Announced as Minecraft Becomes Most Sold Game of All Time

    Build an alternate reality.

    Microsoft wants to build a world within our own world. That's the basic idea behind the newly announced augmented reality game, Minecraft Earth. This is a newly announced upcoming augmented reality game that should be coming to a mobile phone near you this Summer with the launch of a closed beta program.

    Minecraft Earth will be free to play when it releases and may include some sort of microtransactions. The team still isn't sure yet just how or what they would monetize with the game, so it's still very much in the air. However, they do make...

    Microsoft and Sony Announce Team Up for Gaming and Cloud Services

    This partnership focuses on "game and content-streaming services."

    Microsoft announced today that they and Sony have formed a partnership that will see the two working together on AI solutions and "innovations to enhance customer experiences in their direct-to-consumer entertainment platforms." That's probably as close as you're going to get to them strongly hinting at some form of actual gaming partnership in this announcement release.

    The two studios will work together to create new cloud solutions using Microsoft's Azure service that will "support...

    Xbox One SAD Edition Announced


    Microsoft officially announced a new Xbox One SKU today. It's called the 1TB Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, or the Xbox One SAD Edition if you're feeling cheeky. As you may have already gathered from the name, there is no optical drive included on this Xbox One.

    It's just like a normal Xbox One S except you can't play any disc-based games. You can only download games or stream them. So just like the regular Xbox One S, you can still pre-order games, pre-load games, save games locally and to the cloud, and you still have access to your entire digital game library. It's literally...

  • Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch

    Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch


    For the longest time, if you wanted a refund from Sony for a purchase made through the PlayStation Store, you were either completely out of luck or were maybe given a one time exception. There were a few other times where Sony cracked open that refund door another inch, such as when games were severely broken to the point of crashing systems, but these were made once in a blue moon. Even then it wasn't a guarantee that you would be issued a refund if you requested one.

    Yesterday, Sony pushed out a slightly less draconian refund policy for purchases made from the PlayStation...

  • Microsoft Reveals World of Warcraft Now Runs on DirectX 12 on Windows 7

    Microsoft Reveals World of Warcraft Now Runs on DirectX 12 on Windows 7


    I really have no idea why Microsoft is promoting this news, yet here we are. A new MSDN blog post was put up today by Jianye Lu, program manager at Microsoft, that talks about how World of Warcraft is a DirectX 12 game running on Windows 7.

    There are a lot of things simultaneously incredibly weird and incredibly interesting about this news. It marks the first major title to use DirectX 12 on Windows 7. That's pretty neat. However, DirectX 12 has largely been a Windows 10 exclusive API. It's actually been a pretty big reason behind pushing some people to upgrade to Windows...

    Microsoft Reportedly Releasing an All-Digital Xbox One in May


    The "all digital future" may be closer than you think if a new rumor is to be believed. According to Brad Sams from Thurrott.com, Microsoft is getting ready to release an Xbox One S console that doesn't have a disc drive.

    Sams says that the internal codename for this device is "Xbox Maverick" with the public facing name being "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition." Pre-orders are apparently slated to go live mid-April with a release possibly coming as early as May.

    Beyond being able to purchase games directly through the Microsoft Store...

    Rumor Suggests Forza, Halo, or Gears of War is Coming to Nintendo Switch


    According to a new report from Jeuxvideo.com, Microsoft may bring one of their high-profile franchises to the Nintendo Switch. The problem is, they don't really state which franchise they may bring over. Right now, they currently suggest that it could be an entry from the Forza franchise, or Halo, or even Gears of War. They also don't know if it would be a port of an older title, a new title, or a port of an Xbox One title.

    It is also being suggested that Rare titles could find their way to the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps Rare Replay? So far, this is all just rumor and may not...

  • You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018

    You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018


    According to The NPD Group, consumers spent over $43 billion on video games throughout 2018. That marks an 18% increase over 2017 spending. There are a couple of important notes about this. This figure is for both software and hardware. It also does not take into account digital sales since the NPD cannot reliably track digital sales figures.

    The best selling title of the year was Red Dead Redemption 2. The second and third best selling titles in 2018 were Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and NBA 2K19 respectively.

    Though the best offering from Nintendo came in at the...

    Rockstar Begins Selling Gold Bars for Real Money in Red Dead Online

    I guess the beta for Red Dead Online is "good" enough now that Rockstar felt comfortable opening up their real-money store for the game. Starting today, you can purchase gold bars to fulfill Red Dead Online's second economy. These bars allow you to purchase various in-game items such as horses, outfits, weapon customizations, and more without spending the other in-game currency of "RDO$" or Red Dead Online dollars. The prices for gold bars begins at $9.99 (USD), which will net you 25 gold bars. However, they do have a special that you can get 25 gold bars for $4.99. Lucky you! Other packages include 55 gold bars, 150 bars, 245 bars, all t...
