Xbox One Makes Some Connections to PC

Well, today has been an up and down day for the Xbox One and PC with the announcement that the official drivers are out for the Xbox One controller which means it can be used for the just announced Dead Rising 3 from Capcom which is coming to the PC Summer 2014.  This has gotten many in the gaming community a little ruffled as Dead Rising 3 was touted as an Xbox One exclusive title even before the systems launch in late 2013.  

But on the other hand this is a game that more people should play in my honset opinion.  It may be buggy and have issue, but I have found a great deal of just FUN while running around the city coming up with crazy ways to survive and take out the zombie hordes.  The addition of the Xbox One controller support will help many people make the move one way or the other between the two platforms which could help them both in the long run. 

Check out the trailer below, and get the PC drivers for your Xbox One controller HERE.

Resolutiongate

Why is this a thing? Why do we have a considerable amount of people throwing their hands up in the air with disgust over non-native 1080p resolution (60 fps ಠ_ಠ) games? I don't quite get it myself. More and more do I see this stuff happen especially more so now that the Xbox One and PS4 have been released. Resolutiongate is what it's being referred to as, which apparently is today's "Doritosgate." The latter being a bit more controversial at least in my opinion, but that's another story for another day.

People laughing at supposed inferior hardware saying that no one will purchase said game. Is this what the console wars have drawn out to now? I understand how people try and justify their purchases when they more likely than not can only afford one versus the other, but this is still a pretty pathetic argument honestly if that really is the case. I could show you a game set on a 720p resolution and chances are that you wouldn't even be able to tell the difference. It looks just fine. Games are meant to be about how the game PLAYS. It's always been that way. Anything else is irrelevant.
