  1. Will Hollywood Follow GOG.com Into DRM-Free Movie Downloads?

    Thus leaving us agog.

    Music services like iTunes brought digital distribution into the spotlight long ago, but in the years since, concern over the ease of copying files have led to Digital Rights Management (DRM) issues and a slew of different solutions.

But will Hollywood go along for the ride?

  3. 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.

    Microsoft is doing everything it can to regain the momentum that put the Xbox 360 in the lead last generation (albeit just barely) and announced today that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be coming exclusively to Xbox One. 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.

  4. 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. I can't imagine it's gone incredibly well for them given this information. Unfortunately, this comes as part of Microsoft's massive layoff of 18,000 jobs over the next year.

    Achievement unlocked: 1080p.

    "No, your console doesn't have more graphical power. Mine just has a lot of untapped potential. You'll see," the argument that is as old as gaming goes. Well, in the case of the Xbox One, it's actually kind of true. Now that Kinect is no longer mandatory, developers have some extra graphical power to work with that was previously sealed off.

    If your response is, "Who cares, man? HALO 5!" I won't judge.

    Last year at E3, Microsoft announced that, in 2014, the "journey with Halo on Xbox One begins." Today, Halo 5: Guardians was announced for Xbox One for... fall of 2015. Some fans and journalists see this as a delay, but with rumors of other Halo plans this year, was this always the plan?

    Xbox: where watching something you already pay for at no additional fee is considered an incentive.

    The PlayStation 4 has been the clear choice for gamers so far this console generation, and Microsoft has snapped into action with a movie to get rid of their Kinect tax bundle requirement for the Xbox One.
