Nintendo raised eyebrows when it bowed out of holding a traditional live press conference in favor of a pre-taped video at E3 this year. This was doubly shocking because of the importance of this particular E3, where its competitors in the home console market would be pulling out all the stops to showcase their new hardware and games. Nintendo's latest console, the Wii U, stumbled out of the gate and has been under-performing in virtually all regions. If ever there was a time to make a splash, this was it.  Read More

Microsoft has reversed course on the Xbox One's restrictive DRM and always online policies

In a move that is already sending shockwaves through the gaming community, Microsoft has reversed course on the ill-advised digital rights management (DRM) and always online policies of its forthcoming Xbox One game console.

Allow Gizmag to lend a hand, as we compare the specs (and other features) of the Microsoft Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4.  Read More

Scosche may have a reputation for crafting unusual gadgets, from roll-up keyboards to mobile phone blockers, but its upcoming device seems strange even by those standards.

Gizmag goes hands-on with Nintendo's upcoming Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo's Wii U hasn't exactly set the world on fire. But if there's any genre that can take it off of life support, it's a 3D Mario game. Nintendo told us a while back that one was in the works, but today the company took the cat out of the bag (in this case, quite literally). It's called Super Mario 3D World, and we got a chance to play it today at E3.  Read More
