    ‘Black Panther’ Xbox One X from Marvel and Microsoft

    I only saw Black Panther once, but I don’t remember seeing any Best Buys in Wakanda. Yet apparently they have some electronics stores there, judging by the Black Panther Xbox One X, a highly limited edition console from Marvel and Microsoft. How limited? There are purportedly only five Black Panther Xbox One X consoles in existence, and they’re subject to a […]

  • Xbox Game Pass: More Than 100 Games Streaming from the Cloud

    Xbox Game Pass: More Than 100 Games Streaming from the Cloud

    Microsoft evidently forewent a big publicity push for this service, but since it’s essentially Netflix for video games such a push probably wasn’t necessary. It’s Xbox Game Pass, and it’s now providing Xbox One users with cloud access to over a hundred games at ten bucks a month. For now, the Xbox Game Pass is just […]

    Xbox One X: Upcoming Xbox Console Has Name, Release Date

    For a while now, Microsoft‘s upcoming new Xbox console went under the working title “Project Scorpio.” A name like that is a little too sexy for something middle Americans are supposed to put in their homes, and now the release title for the console has been made public: It’s the Xbox One X. Pedants might […]

    I guess with a Doctor Strange movie coming out, astral projection is going to be hot again very soon. And Microsoft is there to capitalize with the Microsoft HoloLens, new technology that allows users to kinda-sorta astral project themselves anywhere in the world through the power of holograms.

    ‘Halo 5′ Opening Cinematic Released (Video)

    We still have almost two whole months to wait until Halo 5 drops onto store shelves, but the people at Microsoft are stoking the already white-hot fires of anticipation by releasing the game‘s opening cinematic online.

    Microsoft HoloLens: Holographic Virtural Reality Helmet Unveiled (Video)

    I’m not a big Star Trek fan, but even I am familiar with the Holodeck, the chamber that lets users step inside a completely realistic holographic simulation of any environment they choose. And at a recent Microsoft live event, it appeared that we’ve come one step closer to the Holodeck reality, with the unveiling of […]

    Microsoft Unveils the Surface Pro 3 (Pics)

    A new surprise announcement from Microsoft is the Surface Pro 3, the newest tablet in the company’s Surface line, and an unexpectedly significant upgrade over the Surface Pro 2. So significant, in fact, that Microsoft is claiming that the Surface Pro 3 is “the tablet that can replace your laptop.” That impressive claim is supported […]
