  • Second Look: How Xbox One Made Me Take a Hard Look at the PS4


    Well then.

    Well then. I had hoped for a decision like this, but somehow I didn't really expect it. This is good news, not just for Xbox fans sitting on the fence, but for consumers as a whole. Your voice was heard. Our voice was heard. But that's not the... More
