Last week at the Build 2017 conference in Seattle, Microsoft unveiled their new motion controller. The short video seen below is high concept, showing the controllers being used in a virtual space: https://youtu.be/t8Y7m1onWoc The controllers appear to have some similarity to those being offered for the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive in terms of form factor and appearance - each features a trigger, thumbstick, touchpad, and grab button. A band of illuminated LEDs will be used to track the controllers in a 3D space - and this is where the real difference in these controllers is apparent. Current VR ... Read More »

The Flying Battery Zone featured in the 1994 smash hit, and some may say last great Sonic title, Sonic & Knuckles. The video below demonstrates a re-imagining of the Zone with our spiky haired friend, Knuckles the Echidna. Whilst the graphics look absolutely spot on and faithful to the original 16-bit series, hands on tests report that the handling is just as identical. Whilst Sonic Mania features other zones from ...

The Amazon best selling list has seen another change in momentum for certain titles over the last week. On pre-orders alone, Injustice 2 which is released this Friday snags the top spot. You have to wonder how much longer the money machine that is GTA V can keep up its momentum. Currently at it's highest position for some time, it has been a stalwart regular in the top ten all year.
