The AV company has no problem attaching a luxury price to the all-in-one theatre box, either, suggesting a $50,000 tag for a full-f...

Wii60 aficionado OBsIV had a dream, a dream of consoles living and working together under one flag, sharing games and controls without any problems or hitches. Today, friends (actually, yesterday), that dream is a reality. After months of hard work, OBsIV was able to cruise around Lockout in Halo ...

According to a survey conducted by Magid Media from March 20th to the 27th, Xbox 360 owners are somewhat more likely to ...

In honor of certain events and just 'cause it's Friday (aw yeah), we thought we'd cap off the week with a little something that turned up on YouTube. We never felt so close to Microsoft before.

Numerous fanboys (not to mention Peter Moore) have predicted that the Nintendo Wii find success as "second console," tucked safely on the shelf next to an Xbox 360. An agile Robin, if you will, to Microsoft's burly Batman. Afterall, you can buy both a 360 and a cute, cuddly Wii console for the cost...

Major Nelson points 360 Fanboy to an Ars Technica (comically misspelled as Art Technica by Nelson) interview with Xbox 360 developer Matt Lee. The interview covers a wide range of topics but doesn't get truly interesting until Lee starts discussing the differences between Xbox 360 and the upco...
