REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

10 PS4 Games That Were Bestsellers Before Even Being Released
Posted on Wednesday, August 27 2014 @ 22:03:44 PST

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.

Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others are still months away from hitting the market.

How great would it be if you had a video game development company and made all these sales before the game even came out?

You'll notice that America's love for football clearly translates into video games because both Madden 15 editions (standard and the ultimate) grace the list.

So what is it about these games that people can't wait to purchase? Why do people buy games so far in advance? Why do people pay for these games months before they can even play them (weeks I can understand)?

So here are the 10 games that were yet-to-be-released for the PS4 that were sitting pretty in the top 20 of Amazon's bestseller's list last week.
