Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is coming out in only a month, but anyone who's pre-ordered one of the special editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare for PS4 will be able to play the campaign (but not the multiplayer) on October 5th. A new cinematic trailer for this remastered edition was recently released, showcasing a lot of the game's high points in glorious high resolution. 

There have been some rumors about the game being sold seperatly from Infinite Warfare. However, the only current way to buy it is in the bundle with Infinite Warfare. It's also worth noting that only 10 of the original game's multiplayer maps will be available at launch, with the collection being completed in December.

Microsoft made its debut in the dedicated video game console business with the original Xbox. It managed to make a splash with a few big hits like Halo, but the console sold just 24 million units. Microsoft's second console, Xbox 360, was much more successful with over 84 million units shipped (including replacement consoles), but Microsoft had its eyes set on a far more ambitious goal for Xbox One. Speaking with Stevivor, Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed that the Xbox team (under Don Mattrick's leadership at the time) was aiming for a whopping 200 million sales. Hit the jump for more.

Microsoft and Sony are both gearing up to launch new and improved versions of their home consoles with extra power and 4K compatibility, but unlike Project Scorpio, PlayStation 4 Pro will not support 4K Blu-ray. This revelation surprised Xbox executive Albert Penello, and Microsoft has wasted no time capitalizing on it for marketing purposes. A new commercial for Xbox One S boasts that it's "the only console with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray." Your move, Sony. 

Next month, Microsoft will release the highly anticipated fourth entry in the Gears of War series.

Microsoft and Sony are both gearing up to launch new and improved versions of their home consoles with extra power and 4K compatibility, but there are some key differences between Project Scorpio and PlayStation 4 Pro, especially when it comes to their 4K features.

Speaking with The Guardian, Microsoft's Albert Penello revealed that he was quite surprised by the latter issue. Hit the jump for more.

Yesterday, a new trailer for Battlefield 1's single-player campaign was revealed, and not long after, more details about the game's story were revealed on the official Battlefield 1 website. While most games in the series follow one person, the latest entry will put players in the shoes of multiple people from around the world.

Sunset Overdrive was definitely one of the first reasons for anyone to buy an Xbox One back in 2014. The colorful and wacky open world game was, and still is, a culmination of everything that made Insomniac Games, the developer, one of gaming's most legendary figureheads. Unfortunately, the only real problem for most fans is that you need an Xbox One to play. Nothing against Microsoft's console of course, but it definitely puts a damper on anyone without one looking to play the game. According to a recent tweet, however, it seems Insomniac is up for putting the game out on PC—they just need an okay from Microsoft.
