The LVL 5+ is a great, mid-range headset and an awesome gift for the holidays. However, after testing the LVL 5+, I was invited to also test the <a href="" target="_blank">Afterglow AG 9+</a> and I have to admit that the contrast was stark. What the LVL 5+ does for the mid-range, the AG 9+ does for the upper crust.</p></div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Xbox One Xbox One Hardware Mon, 21 Nov 2016 20:41:00 +0000 80411 at Review: Afterglow LVL 5+ Headset for Xbox One <div class="node-body gallery-body"><p>&nbsp;</p> <p>With the holiday season just around the corner, I&#39;ve been in gift-testing mode - particularly those gifts that would make any Xbox One game happy.

We&rsquo;ve delved into the world of chargers in the past, but not since owning the Xbox One.

Even though I&rsquo;m one of <em>those</em> people that bought the Xbox One with the Kinect, I still had to have the remote control. The original remote control is pretty neat in that it &ldquo;comes on&rdquo; when you move it, i.e., it&rsquo;s motion activated.</p></div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Xbox One Xbox One Hardware Tue, 15 Nov 2016 22:06:00 +0000 80241 at Review: iDeaUSA s408 Gaming Headphones <div class="node-body gallery-body"><p>The iDeaUSA Gaming Headphone could be considered either retro or modern hipster &ndash; depending on who you ask &ndash; but these extraordinarily comfortable gaming headphones have been a hit with my gaming teenagers.</p> <p>The style gives them an almost &ldquo;steampunk&rdquo; vibe (which is cool I&rsquo;m told) and but the quality manufacturing and high function make these a must-have set of gaming accessories. The tuck-away microphone is a nice touch, allowing gamers to go instantly from special effects and music listening devices to a verbal smack down platform.</p></div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Headphones IdeaUSA Games Hardware Mon, 14 Nov 2016 16:30:00 +0000 80181 at Xbox Insider Program Changes Everything about the Console's Preview Program <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft is making a significant branding change for their consoles preview program that will result in it being available to all users on the platform.</div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Games gaming Microsoft Xbox Xbox Insider Program Xbox One Xbox Preview Program Xbox One Tue, 08 Nov 2016 13:08:00 +0000 80041 at Microsoft Microsoft Adds Carrier Billing Option for Xbox Store Across All Devices <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft expands the options Xbox users have for paying for their games and other entertainment options across all devices that support the Xbox apps and services.</div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> carrier billing Hardware operator billing payments purchases purchasing Windows Store Xbox Xbox app Xbox One Games Tue, 01 Nov 2016 13:16:00 +0000 79841 at Amazon Eyes Living Rooms by Adding Gaming Features to Prime <div class="field-byline"> Spencer Soper | Bloomberg </div> <div class="node-body article-body"> Inc. will add video-game streaming features to its $99-a-year Prime membership, expanding its entertainment services while positioning itself to challenge video game console makers Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp.</div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Games Mon, 03 Oct 2016 17:00:00 +0000 79171 at Getty Images Review: NFL Official Faceoff Xbox Gaming Controller from PDP <div class="node-body gallery-body"><p>Performance Designed Products (PDP) has developed an NFL officially licensed Xbox One/Windows PC controller. Myself and my two gamer boys have been testing this controller for the past week and I have to say that the device is quality built and durable.
