    Looks familiar, no?

    by Mitch Dyer of ign.com

    Xbox One's wired chat headset has been revealed. The device looks similar to Xbox 360's microphone, with one speaker and a controller input. On Xbox One, you'll have volume and mute control on the controller input -- similar to the old version of the Xbox 360 headset -- and padding on both sides of the headset. The new device will also use a wideband voice codec for sharper voice chat.

  • Xbox One Will Require Day One Update

    Xbox One Will Require Day One Update

    Kinect still required, no Family Sharing, Smart Match and instant game switching still enabled.

    by Andrew Goldfarb of ign.com Microsoft has confirmed that a day one update will be required for Xbox One.

    Xbox One Will Not Require Internet, Restrict Used Games

    No more game lending restrictions, daily check-ins or region locks.

    PlayStation 4 Games Will Cost $59.99

    Status quo.

    by Colin Moriarty of ign.com If you were worried about PlayStation 4 games costing more than PlayStation 3 games, think again. Sony has confirmed to ShackNews that PS4 titles purchased at retail will cost $59.99. However, there may be a caveat here, as the specific quote reads, “All four [launch/launch window] titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall, DriveClub, Knack, and Infamous: Second Son are all $59.99.” Is this designed to give Sony wiggle room later on? We’ll have to see. This news comes on the heels of Microsoft’s confirm...
