Microsoft’s priciest video game acquisition, a $7.5 billion purchase of Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax Media, shocked the industry on Monday. The deal puts Bethesda, one of the industry’s biggest publishers and owners of some of the most successful gaming series, under the Xbox brand. It also raises a simple but powerful question: how does buying Bethesda fit into Microsoft’s overall Xbox strategy?
The immediate and inevitable reaction from consumers focused, naturally, on competition, and whether future Bethesda titles will become Xbox exclusives. It’s a sensible concern — why, after all, would any company in an industry as cutthroat as gaming purchase a major entertainment brand if not to deprive its primary rival the...

Crysis Remastered is out now on PC. But what sort of PC is needed to play at 8K? We find out.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X are coming, but here's what you can get right now.
Sony’s upcoming PS5 hardware has appeared at the FCC, providing us with the first close up photos of the next-gen console. The FCC has published a variety of images, showing the standard PS5 laying horizontally, the included cables, and the removable base that holds the console in both vertical and horizontal positions.
The photos also show just how big the PS5 truly is. We learned earlier this week that the PS5 is the biggest game console in modern history, even topping the Xbox One VCR-like shape and Sony’s own PS3. Sony released official dimensions during its PS5 event this week, but they don’t include the “largest projection” or the optional base measurements.
Cyberpunk 2077 is just a couple of months away, and in Night City Wire Episode 3, we learn more about the game's characters — and score.
CD Projekt Red
Cyberpunk 2077 will be released in a few months, but ahead of its mid-November launch, developer CD Projekt Red unveiled the system requirements needed to run the PC version of the game, and shockingly, you don’t need to upgrade your computer to play the game.
The game’s recommended specs are not too heavy, requiring only an Intel Core i7-4790 or an AMD Ryzen 3 3200G processor, and either an Nvidia GTX 1060 or an AMD Radeon R9 Fury graphics card. So if you have not upgraded your rig in a bit, you’ll likely still be able to run the game at 1080p. However, if you are looking to run the game at 1440p or 4K resolution or take advantage of the game’s technical features like ray tracing, you will need to upgrade to an RTX 20-series or RTX...
Throughout Sony’s marketing push for the PlayStation 5, one big question mark has been backward compatibility.

While Sony has indicated … Continue reading
Nintendo has effectively (albeit indirectly) revealed it’s discontinuing the 3DS. So Nintendo‘s only console from here on out is the Switch. So rest in peace, 3DS — it’s been great. Fans noticed yesterday that the Japanese Nintendo website listed all 3DS family consoles — which include the 3DS LL, the 2DS, and the 2DS LL — as “not in production.” The Nintendo of America site no longer has any mention of the 3DS on its store or information pages. So it seems that, almost 10 years after it launched in 2011, Nintendo is winding down production on one of its… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Nintendo

Ever since the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, video games have cost $60. They're getting more expensive on the next-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
When internet detectives revealed the PlayStation 5 was going to be huge, we were extremely amused — but even their fancy Photoshops couldn’t completely prepare us for how enormous the PS5 truly is.
Roughly half an hour after Sony finally revealed the next-gen console’s price and release date ($399 or $499, November 12th) the company released a full spec sheet that includes the console’s dimensions. And it’s a monster.
