The Xbox ecosystem is closing in on PlayStation

In the wake of Xbox and Bethesda’s joint E3 conference, it feels like a perfect time to assess the state of Xbox as a brand and how it’s beginning to stack up with Sony.

How PlayStation and Xbox have taken different approaches to marketing the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

I would just like to start this by saying that in no way do I mean to compare PlayStation and Xbox as brands and bring back the console wars of old. I am just observing the differing approaches that they have taken to promoting their next-gen machines.

Remnant: From The Ashes Review

Some may describe Remnant: From the Ashes as a souls-like with guns, but I would completely disagree with that statement. It has a different style of gameplay and a level of customization that is totally unique, trading sword, shield and bow for pistol, shotgun, and modifications that give you special powers.
