August 22, 2013 by Staff - Leave a comment


The team at Xbox has put together what you might call a highlight reel of all the best Xbox One pieces from Gamescom so far. While it was originally released as a live show, the video has remained up as something of a showcase for the Xbox One.

If you haven’t been keeping up with all the Xbox One goings on, want to check out some of the games, or find out more about the Xbox One’s features, then you need to sit down and check this clip out.

Ryse, Battlefield 4 and Titanfall all look AMAZING to us. The only disappointing thing is that we still don’t have a release date!

Xbox One accessories video showcase

August 7, 2013 by Staff - 2 Comments


Microsoft have put together a series of three videos that showcase different Xbox One accessories. Namely, the Play & Charge Kit, the Chat Headset and of course the Wireless Controller.

Each of the videos is extremely well done and captured in high definition, enabling you to see every single detail. Basic notes on how they work and other features are also included. For example, did you know the Play & Charge Kit features a 9 foot cord and will fully charge your controller in under 4 hours? The impulse triggers on the Xbox One controller are also very cool. Take a look for yourself!

PS4 user interface leaked via test kit video

by Staff - 2 Comments


The user interface, more commonly known as a dashboard these days, for the Playstation 4 has not yet been revealed. However this leaked clip should give us some idea of what it could look like when Sony finally decide to do the big unveiling.

The footage comes courtesy of a very early PS4 testing kit (hence the crash which actually takes us back to the dashboard, enabling us to see it, in the first place).

We thought that the dashboard sounds were pretty much perfect (atmospheric, if you will) although there will likely be an option to turn them off if you want, just like with the PS3. The UI also looked very quick which will make a nice change from what we currently have with the Playstation 3.

What makes a good dashboard in your eyes?

PS4 can record 15 minutes worth of gameplay footage

July 23, 2013 by Staff - 4 Comments


Have you been wondering how much gameplay your PS4 will be able to automatically and continuously record? The answer is 15 minutes. Sony Computer Entertainment Europe confirmed the number to CVG just yesterday. All recording will be done by your console in the background and be available to edit and publish once you’ve finished what you’re doing.

The recorded footage can be accessed through the new DualShock 4 controller’s share button from where you’ll be able to edit, crop and add titles to your clips – all on your PS4. You can then share your videos across social networks using Ustream.

The 15 minute figure also compares favorably to the Xbox One’s automatic recording capabilities – it can take 5 minutes worth of gameplay footage. We can’t wait to see how this new feature is used by gamers once the PS4 is released and are sure there will be a lot of scope to utilize it in describing cheats, glitches, guides and more!

Xbox One can record last 5 minutes of your gameplay

by Staff - 3 Comments


Here’s some newly confirmed information regarding an Xbox One feature a lot of you are probably excited about – automatic recording of gameplay. It is now known that the Xbox One is able to automatically record the last five minutes of your gameplay.

Details concerning the time length were given by Microsoft Studios creative director Ken Lob while discussing the Xbox One version of Killer Instinct at Comic-Con.

The idea is you’re always recording. The last five minutes of any game you’re playing are always being stored on your hard drive.

The five minute figure is less than what the Playstation 4 is capable of recording however. Apparently it can do 15 minutes.

The Xbox One will, however, also offer some other cool features in terms of recording and sharing your gameplay. For instance you’ll be able to edit your footage on the fly and add things like voice-overs and titles. Plus, for times when you can’t stop and edit your clips (like right after that awesome killstreak you just nailed in CoD online) you can simply say “Xbox, record that” and your console will save the last 30 seconds of gameplay to the hard-drive. You can then go back and edit it later. And don’t forget you can stream all your gameplay online via the Xbox One (and PS4 for that matter).

All in all the next generation of gaming offers some exciting possibilities in terms of recording and sharing your gameplay and we can’t wait to see all the exciting ways it’s used – not the least in terms of cheats and guides for games!
