Video Game News

  • This one hits home as I was kinda hoping it would be possible, but Xbox will not be making a Star Wars themed Xbox One. With Playstation picking up the slack and doing a Darth Vader themed console, they may win the war with those still on the fence.
  • EA shared a couple pics of the battle of Jakku.
