Date: Tue, 31. December 2013 11:00:00
New gaming consoles form Microsoft and Sony dominated the news in 2013, but the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 weren?t the only notable news items in the gaming world over the past 12 months. In this video report, we?ll sum up the year in gaming, with a focus on these two major console releases, along with a look at the Nvidia Shield and Nintendo?s struggling Wii U.

New Xbox more than a game console for Microsoft

Date: Sat, 18. May 2013 11:17:07
By Malathi Nayak and Bill Rigby SAN FRANCISCO/SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp is set to make a splash this week with the eagerly awaited unveiling of its new Xbox game console, eight years after the last version, as it seeks a larger share of the $65 billion a year global computer gaming industry. But the small device faces some big competition from the PlayStation 4 by Sony Corp and the Wii U by Nintendo Co Ltd in a shifting market. ...

PlayStation 4, Xbox One preorders on Amazon topped 2,500 per minute during E3

Date: Fri, 21. June 2013 16:55:32
The gaming industry is in a downward spiral. The launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this fall are seen as the only things that could stimulate the market. The good news, though, is that Amazon has revealed that both consoles are in extremely high demand so far. The company on Friday announced that Sony and Microsoft?s systems gave its gaming store its biggest preorder week of all time. At its peak, Amazon saw preorders of more than 2,500 Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles per minute during last week?s Electronic Entertainment Expo. ?E3 week pre-orders of [Xbox One and PlayStation 4] consoles brought a year-over-year increase in orders of more than 4,000%, compared to consoles ordered during E3 week last year,?

New consoles could send game sales soaring to $93 billion this year

Date: Tue, 29. October 2013 21:15:43
By this time next month, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be sitting on store shelves all across the world? provided they both don?t sell out in their respective launch weeks. Gartner reports that the new consoles from Microsoft and Sony, as well as the Wii U from Nintendo, will be a major force pushing the video game marketplace to $93 billion in 2013, an 18% jump over last year?s $79 billion. While console sales will inevitably slow in the coming years, mobile gaming is expected to see incredible growth until at least 2015. ?As mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) continue to grow, the mobile game category will show the biggest growth due to the entertainment value provided by games compared with

12 PC gaming gems hidden among the consoles at E3

Date: Tue, 11. June 2013 06:30:00
All eyes were on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One during Monday?s ?Day Zero? pre-E3 event, the annual gauntlet of press conferences by gaming?s giants. And the spotlight was well deserved: The launch of a new generation of consoles only happens once or twice per decade, as opposed to the slow, constant iteration of PC hardware. Here?s the thing, though. While EA, Ubisoft, Sony, and Microsoft were busy talking up the fact that the torrent of announced games was headed for next-gen console hardware, many of the titles showed off today are actually destined to land on PCs, too. Why wouldn?t they? With the Xbox One and PS4?s shift to x86 processors , making games cross-platform should be a breeze. Without further ado, here's a list of today?s promiscuous gems slated for eventual PC deployment.

Gamers plan campaign to end DRM on Xbox One and PlayStation 4

Date: Mon, 3. June 2013 16:50:08
Microsoft and Sony?s used game policies for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 remain unclear. Both companies have confirmed that their respective consoles can play used games, however they would not go into further detail. An earlier rumor suggested that Sony would incorporate some form of digital rights management (DRM) for pre-owned games, while a second report claimed that Microsoft would only allow select retailers to resell games. Gamers are becoming increasingly frustrated with both companies for not addressing the issue at hand. PlayStation enthusiasts recently set up a social media campaign to voice their concerns, and while the movement received widespread media coverage and attention from Sony executives, no questions were answered. The gamers, who originated from popular gaming

The new consoles from Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony

Date: Fri, 14. June 2013 15:30:15
NEW YORK (AP) ? Microsoft and Sony offered new details this week on the game consoles they will start selling before the holiday shopping season. The Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 will join Nintendo's Wii U, which came out last year, in vying for shoppers' attention and dollars at a time many people are turning to phones and tablets for gaming.

Microsoft confirms Xbox One can also download games remotely

Date: Fri, 30. August 2013 17:45:33
Not to be outdone by Sony, Xbox Corporate Vice President Marc Whitten confirmed on Friday that the Xbox One will be able to remotely download games purchased through smartphones and other devices on the Xbox mobile companion app, just like the PlayStation 4. Earlier this month Microsoft also made moves to allow indie developers more freedom to develop for their home console, something Sony has been touting since announcement the PS4. As we approach the launch dates for the new consoles, their feature lists are closer than ever, especially after Microsoft was pressured to backtrack on some initial announcements that the gaming community found objectionable. Microsoft?s Xbox One will cost $499.99 and its release date is still unknown.

Nintendo?s future called into question as Wii U sales plummet

Date: Fri, 15. February 2013 11:50:53
Nintendo (NTDOY) now faces the very real prospect of having an absolute flop on its hands. As Microsoft (MSFT) moved an estimated 281,000 Xbox 360 consoles in the U.S. in January to take the top spot for the 25th consecutive month, Gamasutra reports that Nintendo sold ?well under? 100,000 Wii U consoles last month. The site estimates that sales may have fallen between 45,000 and 59,000 units in January, which could mark the worst month for a Nintendo console since before the original Wii launched. This is not the first sign of trouble for Nintendo?s Wii U. The new console has not been well received in the U.S., U.K. or even in Japan, and Nintendo recently lowered its first-quarter outlook as

New Game Console Success Isn't a Foregone Conclusion

Date: Mon, 25. March 2013 18:40:32
In the next few days, Microsoft is expected to announce their next generation console, dubbed the ?XBOX 720? at this year?s GDC (Game Developer Conference).  This is right on the heels of Sony?s recent PS4 announcement and lackluster sales announcements for Nintendo?s Wii U.  These new game consoles will sell, but just not as well as they once did.  Gaming and the gaming industry has changed since 2005 when the PS3 and the XBOX 360 were first announced, and those changes will impact how well the new consoles sell in the future.  I want to delve into a few of these variables, starting with mobility.
