Achievement Unlocked: 20 Years at Microsoft

They say be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. To be honest, on Commencement Day at Syracuse University with my freshly inked Newhouse School of Television, Radio and Film Production diploma in hand, I could never have imagined the career that I have had so far.

It started with a phone call.

In 1995, my wife and I joined the newly launched MSN. As vendors, we managed the Television Community, soon followed by the Soaps Community. Several years later, we shifted gears...

Nintendo Switch: 2020 Sees the Second-Highest Annual Dollar Sales in US Console History

Nintendo Switch was the number one console in the US in 2020, for both units sold and dollars made – and had the second-best year for dollar sales in US console history, only trailing the Wii's spectacular 2008. The NPD's Mat Piscatella revealed the facts on Twitter, as part of a breakdown of December 2020 video game sales. During last month, spending across hardware, content and accessories hit $7.7 billion – a 25% rise, year-on-year – with $1.35 billion of that coming from...

A Way Out's Josef Fares on Why He's Making Games in a Genre He Had to Invent

Amid the games industry’s constant push-pull between contained single-player stories and sprawling multiplayer experiences, Josef Fares and his studio Hazelight keep making things that sit somewhere in the middle. 2018’s A Way Out, and 2021’s It Takes Two are both well-presented, start-to-finish stories built around set protagonists, just like the titans of the single-player world. But they can also only be played in co-op (whether in-person or online), enforcing some of the...

The (Mostly) Complete History of the PS4

PlayStation 4’s dominance this past generation could not have been more of a 180 from Sony’s struggle during the PS3 era. From minute one, Sony not only announced what the PS4’s impressive seven-year run would be about - games, first and foremost - but also found ways to leapfrog ahead of the Xbox One, which stumbled out of the gate and lost the momentum it Microsoft enjoyed during the reign of the Xbox 360.

But that doesn’t mean the PS4’s lifecycle was a boring one of constant...
