    ( •_•)>⌐■-■ ... (⌐■_■) YYYYEEEEAAAAAHHHHH!

    No stone has been left unturned in the quest to find something, anything, that the Xbox Kinect is good for, and it may have paid off: The Kinect seems pretty useful for investigating crime scenes.

  4. Sorry, PS4 Owners: The Tomb Raider Sequel Is an Xbox One Exclusive. Update: For Now

    You'll just have to dry your eyes on The Last of Us Remastered.

We'll have to wait until the game's holiday 2015 release window to see if it works, but Microsoft just may have a system-seller on its hands.

  5. Microsoft Already Abandoning Most of Its Xbox TV Content, Closing Xbox Entertainment Studios

    We are not will not be entertained.

    You're safe for now, Netflix! Actually, since Microsoft is abandoning their Xbox TV content arm that only just got started last month, you've probably been safe the whole time.
