You'll need to prepare if you're planning any extended prison sentences or comas!

You can now lose your Xbox Live gamertag if you don't log in to the service often enough, although the frequency required to keep your name isn't asking much.


Besides the new 'must login within 5 years' rule, alot of other small changes were made to the new T&C agreement that you must accept, one of them being those in the 'Rewards' or 'Insider' programs for special access have to login with every 180 days to stay a member, and bunch of new disclaimers were added in regard to how payments for Xbox Live services are processed within the USA, stopping Microsoft from getting sued by all those players now cut-off from renewing in Greece and Turkey as payments were stopped.

The woman learned to drive using an Xbox

A motorist who led police on a high speed chase like a scene from Grand Theft Auto had never passed her test and only learned to drive on the Xbox, a court heard. Jessica Pegg was pursued for three-miles through a city centre in a car that she bought for £100 off Facebook.


We all heard about the stories regarding 'woman' drivers, which is statistically not correct, but this one makes the case for it big time as she learned how to drive solely using her Xbox and Grand Theft Auto style, she went out into the real world driving for the first time!

Pokemon GO has some religious leaders worried that it will take away their members!

But other alot of smaller churches are cashing in on the new fad that sweeping across the world, using it as a way to draw more crowds to their places of worship in exchange for free coffee, meals, and a chance to maybe catch a Pokemon in their church!


Pokemon GO has basically overnight become its own religion with millions of followers flying, walking, driving around world getting into trouble, crossing borders, invading private places, taking over city parks, and other crazy madness just for the possible small chance of finding and catching a rare Pokemon located somewhere, someplace on their GPS and Camera equipped smartphone.

But is it a good thing or bad thing for churches, well at least one famous religious leader has spoken out about...

David Ali Sonboly was a quiet, helpful teenager who loved playing video games. His neighbours say there were no warning signs before his deadly rampage at a Munich shopping mall.


Another horrible violent crime, and media again as usual are quick to pull the trigger themselves and blame 'video games' for it!

‘Emulation’ - Playboy discusses the world of Retro Gaming and Emulators like Dolphin!

Sex is the one of the most popular things in the world, and believe it or not, Video Games is the second most popular thing in the world, so it makes sense that the Porn Mag Playboy would run a large in-depth News Article about Emulation and the Love of Nintendo.


Playboy off and on, has an love-hate relationship with Nintendo, infact back in the day we discussed it before on MaxConsole, big 'N' themselves even placed ads for their popular video games, even some little porn little shows like Mario and Nude Showers?

So it makes sense now that Retro Gaming is a big time thing, that Playboy would interview the author of Dolphin one of the best Nintendo emulators out there and uncover the dirt behind 'Emulation' and what makes it so much fun me might even forgot about our first love, sex itself!...

Pokemon GO has become a world-wide hit overnight, and as such normal public places like shopping malls, parks, restaurants have been overrun with thousands of players rushing thru them trying to catch the Pokemon Monsters that only they can see.


In less than a week, Nintendo has turned the world upside-down and inside-out and made the idea of AR, a real thing with millions and millions of players around the world, running around chasing their Pokemon, and in the progress they have wrecked cars by walking in front of them without looking, driven crazy down the street as they try to drive and play, and even stormed private homes, police stations and invaded shopping malls and restaurants worse than even the biggest flash mob that was ever arranged.
