Following millions of user requests, Plex is finally launching Plex for Xbox. The popular media-streaming app is already available on a wide variety of platforms, it will soon be the easiest way to blast local (and pirated) content from your laptop or elsewhere onto your Xbox. The catch is that Plex costs $US5 per month (or $US50 per year or $US150 per lifetime).
It's terrifying how long video games have actually existed. Utterly terrifying. Even more terrifying (and hilarious) are the commercials used to sell video games. Just for fun I decided to trail back through history to unearth almost a commercial for almost every single home console ever released. From the Magnavox Odyssey to the PlayStation 4 and everything inbetween: this is the history of video games in commercial form. Enjoy!
The skeletal recognition tech behind Kinect is useful for way more than just gaming. It's good for sign language, cheating at pool and (duh) porn. But it could help stop violence, too. Thanks to Kinect, security cams could automatically know if they're witnessing a beat-down.
If you weren't convinced that the new Kinect was already amazing, here's something that should change your mind: the new device will be able to discern between two people talking at the same time.
The new old, curiously botoxed Xbox 360 was announced at E3 to a crowd of shrugs. Why add makeup and eyeliner to a walking zombie? Whatever. The ace surgical team at iFixit got their hands on the new old Xbox 360 to see if anything changed inside. Here are the guts.
Microsoft, for some reason, decided to breathe new life into the ageing Xbox 360 by giving it another facelift. This time, it was done to match the design ethos of the Xbox One.

Yesterday, we looked at the best streaming and catch-up services for TV shows. Today, we take a look at the movie equivalents, from Apple TV to BigPond Movies.
Hacker, modder and DIY extraordinaire Ben Heck has seemingly done the impossible with his latest project. For years, a fierce battle has raged between proponents of the big three gaming consoles, but to finally bring peace and civility to gaming forums across the land, Heck created an all-in-one console that combines a PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
When Joshua Meadows moved to Sydney from the bright lights of New York City, the only person he knew was his partner who moved over with him. Joshua, a gamer, craved a social circle he could call his own, and right after his residency visa cleared, Joshua joined a group for gay, lesbian and transgender games called Sydney Gaymers. Little did he know, he'd just joined a community that he would go on to lead as it grew exponentially in its membership in the next 12 months. Now, on the precipice of its first anniversary, the group has over 400 loyal members and is preparing to march as the first group of gamers in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade, with a float sponsored by gaming heavyweights like Valve, Sony and NCSoft.
Meet SuperDaE. You may remember him from such stories as the guy who tried to sell an Xbox Durango (read: the next Xbox) development kit on eBay, and has since been pouring over more dev kits, whitepapers and manuals to get as much information about Microsoft's newest console as possible. Now he says he's ready to share it with the world, and his information looks pretty solid. Find out what's in the next Xbox right here.
