I haven’t used my XB1, at all. It appears that I may be able to sell said unused XB1 quite soon, since my gaming PC will essentially be one.

Microsoft has ended ‘Xbox 360′ production; fare thee well

ballmer

It is with somber tones, ashen eyes, and a strained sadness that I announce that the Xbox 360 has ceased production. Man, my Xbox 360 and me spent some serious fucking time together. Or rather, my three Xbox 360s and me spent some serious fucking time together.

Mine-Crafting

Minecraft seems wonderful. Beyond my ADD-addled brain, but wonderful. Seems to encourage creativity in the youth and beyond, and I respect the fuck out of that. So I continue to cheer on its rampant, rampaging success.

Pretty Gnarl: XB1 retail consoles will become dev kits this year

XB1.

Are you like me? Well, that depends. Do you want to create an indie game where the protagonist must consume pixelated cans of Diet Dew in order to shit laser beams at bouncing pixelated Mark Millar fans? Well, if you are!, now you can create this game for the both of us. On XB1. With your store-bought console.

Shh: Microsoft hiring for “top secret” Xbox projects.

Steve Ballmer is ready.

Microsoft wants YOU, fuckboy!, for their Top Secret Xbox projects. Provided of course that you have the leet skillz required to execute their astounding vision. What could it be? Kinect with responsive teledildonics? A VR headset like everyone else? I can only imagine.
