In the wake of Sony’s announcement of a price hike for the PlayStation 5 across several markets around the world, including the Philippines, Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox Series consoles will stay put. According to Jez Corden of Windows Central, a Microsoft spokesperson released a statement that will put Xbox fans at ease, saying that prices will not change as they strive to always offer fans great gaming options. “We are constantly evaluating our business to offer our fans great gaming options. Our Xbox Series S suggested retail price remains at $299 (£250, €300) the Xbox Series X is $499 (£450, €500).” That’s not to say these consoles won’t be affected by the ongoing global inflation, but this gives players assurance that for the moment, prices will remain as they are. Whether prices change in the future remains to be seen. This is certainly a clear response to Sony’s…

In what could be one of the more underrated announcements during the recently concluded Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Riot Games and Xbox have announced that titles like League of Legends, VALORANT, and others will be joining Game Pass.

The left and right triggers are blacked out, giving a nice contrast to the whole front plate of the controller. Xbox Deep Pink Wireless Controller The controller is now available in supported markets and will retail for $64.99, a tad more expensive than the usual $59.99 price tag of their regular controllers.

Microsoft has announced that they have partnered with Paramount Pictures to celebrate Sonic The Hedgehog 2 with a custom Xbox Series S console paired with 2 fuzzy wireless controllers that may or may not be weird, depending on your preferences. The custom black Series S actually looks pretty good, with its grille serving as a golden ring that is an iconic item in the game, with Sonic and Knuckles squaring off at the bottom. On the other hand, or paw, are the controllers that feature a textured coating that resembles the “bristly” texture of hedgehogs, as Microsoft describes it. https://twitter.com/Xbox/status/1506261163134259205 Sadly, these items are not for sale, and are only part of a limited-time promotion for the upcoming movie.

With the industry still speculating and wondering what the long-term effects of the recent Activision Blizzard acquisition by Microsoft will be, one big question that’s been looming on everyone’s mind is what will happen to Call of Duty in the next year or so. Despite vaguely worded statements from all sides not giving away any specifics, a recent report by Bloomberg has something with a bit more detail regarding the situation, saying that Activision Blizzard “will release at least the next three games in its hit Call of Duty franchise on Sony Group Corp.’s PlayStation as well as its new owner’s Xbox. ” Putting that number in further context, the titles are expected to be the new Call of Duty from Infinity Ward later this year (presumably a new Modern Warfare game), a new title from Treyarch next year (presumably a new Black Ops), and a “new iteration” of Warzone, which is…

Ringing in the new year is new hope that Goldeneye 007, the epic masterpiece from the Nintendo 64, might be making a comeback as an achievement list for the game has strangely appeared online, sparking rumors that we may see a release soon. Goldeneye 007 Xbox Achievements Spotted As spotted by resident deals guy Wario64 on Twitter, a listing on the TrueAchievements website shows a full list of the achievements of the game, tracking 1000 GS over 55 achievements. Additionally, the information also shows that this upcoming release is the original N64 version and not the revised version for the Xbox 360, which was eventually scrapped due to possible license issues. At the moment, there is no evidence of it appearing on other platforms apart from the Xbox, at least based on what’s known so far. https://twitter.com/Wario64/status/1477113900168462342 https://twitter.com/Wario64/status/1477111461495275520 This is very exciting for quite a number of reasons, but more…

Every year, Pornhub reveals its “Year In Review” infographics, which show very interesting statistics on how users interact with their website, including console gamers. You can see the full review HERE (we already did so you don’t have to) and it shows some intriguing results, especially for console gamers. Console Gamers Statistics Breakdown First off, here are the stats: Breaking it down on a per console basis, the PS Vita and Nintendo Wii U and 3DS (the 3DS???) have mostly fallen off the grid, making up a very small segment of the whole pie (not THAT pie). Xbox users make up 36.8% while PlayStation users account for 60.6% of total traffic to the site from console gamers. As part of the millions of console gamers around the world, I’ve never thought of actually going to the site from these $500 machines, but I’m guessing a lot of owners either have…
