V7 Entertainment Inc. is very excited to announce that Old Time Hockey will be officially launching on Steam and PS4, March 28!

But the best news is if you read thru the whole press release below, you will notice they are porting it to the Switch at a later date!
$100 less than you'd normally pay. - Once again, you can pick up an Xbox One S for $200.

This offer includes the white, 500 GB system that comes with Minecraft. While that's not the most expensive game to be bundled with an Xbox One, this is still an outstanding price for a new console.
First Sony announced lower prices for their PS4 console with one game, and now Microsoft is doing the same, but beating them by $50 dollars, and all this is occurring just ahead of Nintendo's big Switch launch with a nice high $299 pricetag and no games bundled in! :)

Developer Cyanide Presents The Making of a Goblin Video

We're less than a month away from the launch of Styx: Shards of Darkness! View today's new developer diary detailing the creation process behind the ambitious sequel below!
Cyanide Studio, developers of Styx: Shards of Darkness, today share in video form how they envisioned and gave life, personality, and soul to the main character of their game, the witty goblin Styx.
The Xbox One has a variety of games, although the one thing that the PS4 has over it is that more Japanese developed games are available on that system. Phil Spencer is hoping to try and rectify this.

A fan asked Phil Spencer on Twitter what are the chances of more JRPGs being released on the Xbox One. After all, several JRPGs were on the Xbox 360 but not many are available on the new system.
It looks like Microsoft is yet another trying for another bite of the Japanese market with their Xbox console, or if not to at least bring over those types of games to the 'western world' for their loyal fans, since Scalebound didn't occur like they originally had planned, so Phil is making a trip overseas to discuss development matters with a number of third-party publishers to see if they can change all that.

If you've been using Microsoft's gaming consoles for long enough, then you'll remember the Xbox Media Center, also known as XBMC.

Over time, XBMC was ported to other platforms, stopped being supported on Xbox, and became Kodi.
But now, thanks to the fact Xbox One console allows for Windows 10 apps under their UWP system, the developers behind Kodi are busy polishing up their popular media center to be sent off to Microsoft soon for UWP approval, which means we will see Kodi return on Xbox.
