Offer users the latest iPhone with 16GB of storage and they happily open their wallet. Take away a core selling point of your entertainment console at launch and no one seems bothered. I’ve managed to make it through the last few years or so exclusively covering technology by telling myself there’s very little that entertainment lovers will rise up against. Late last week, one of the executives in charge at 343 Industries managed to stumble upon one thing that will get folks up in arms.

Sunday Sit Down: Free Xbox Live on Windows 10 PC raises eyebrows

By  • 

This past week’s announcement at the Game Developer Conference attracted an awful lot of raised eyebrows. Microsoft, makers of the Xbox One, wanted to let a new generation of PC gamers and developers know that it was back and that it wasn’t going to stop until it built a platform that every gamer could enjoy, regardless of what Microsoft product they preferred.

Microsoft, Deliver on This for Xbox Music & I’ll Stop Talking

By  • 

Microsoft’s Xbox Music and Xbox Video Teams are in for the fight of their lives this year.

Sunday Sit-down: Windows 10 and Xbox Gaming Essentials

By  • 

Sometimes we as users get so wrapped up in success. We tend to focus with laser-like precision on the things that our favorite sports teams, companies and people do correctly that we forget they make small but crucial mistakes. Microsoft, makers of the Xbox One, hasn’t made small crucial mistakes when it comes to PC gaming. No, they’re entire legacy in PC gaming is a giant joke worthy of a Saturday Night Live parody featuring Kenan Thompson. Now, Microsoft has big gaming announcements planned for Windows 10.
