The title says it all. Millions of people play on the Xbox 360 and it’s finally that time for the new generation to take its place. I for one am an avid Xbox gamer fan and have slayed numerous foes on said console. Will this be a game changer and make Sony fall to its knees or will this be an Xbox 360 with better graphics and a Windows 8 style interface. One can only hope they brag about things beyond being the number one Netflix streamer (seriously Sony?)
Ladies and gents, be sure to tune in for the launch. If you miss it, I will post all of the nitty gritty details on this site shortly after the official announcement so stay tuned! Anyone care to speculate what the new device will More >

This could be a huge change in gaming as we know it. The Oculus Rift looks like something we’ve seen before (remember Virtual Boy?). I can assure you it’s much better in every way. The universal nature of this device is where the good part starts. Don’t be fooled by it’s bulky look, it is actually quite light. Once strapped on, you are fully immersed in the game, or whichever “app” that supports it. This big advantage is its distance based focus and convergence on your eyes. It’s not like sitting a couple feet from your computer monitor. Instead, this device lets your eyes focus on a more distant image which reduces eye strain and discomfort.
Another great feature is it’s ability More >

So having an external portable (2.5″) drive is pretty important these days. Luckily for us there are a lot of choices on the market. So how does a brand stand out? Many people shop for a hard drive based off a sale price or what’s in stock, but don’t necessarily compare the differences. For those of us who wish to purchase the exact hard drive of our choice without sacraficing quality and performance, Akitio has created the Neutrino U3 external enclosure. Using aluminum instead of plastic is a welcome feature, especially when a lot of new computers are shipping in aluminum or poly-carbonite unibodies these days. This level of quality not only looks nice, but it also helps with long More >
Halo 4 Videos to Make Your Mouth Water:
I started cruising YouTube a bit and noticed that Halo Waypoint was cranking out some new videos showing off new things in Halo 4 (Being released on November 6th). I was shocked, impressed, and equally excited for my preorder to arrive. I felt compelled to put a page together for all the important cool new videos being released. This all belongs to Halo Waypoint and Machinima so props to them for the great footage. If you have 15 minutes to spare, watch these videos and start salivating. I provided the 3 different weapon categories and the new Dominion mode. Post your feelings about all these changes below in the comments section!

Unfortunately for many hardware manufacturers, there are only so many things you can create to help with the gaming experience on the Xbox 360. You can get better TVs, audio equipment, controllers (including mods), and I guess some premium seating. Aside from that, all you need is the game console, some cables, and the game itself. Of course you can buy battery chargers and lights but does this impact your gameplay? No. So when you buy headphones, it’s one of the few big purchases you’re going to make aside from the game console and the TV. Everything else is usually a bit less expensive. Turtle Beach knows this and has a brand line for the Xbox that More >
