Xbox announces refer-a-friend program for Game Pass.
  • 1,153

Xbox has announced a friend referral program for Game Pass, however, there's a catch, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass members give up to five friends a free 14-day PC Game Pass trial. Invited friends must be new to Game Pass to redeem the free trial. The invited user must have never had game pass prior to accepting the invitation to join Game Pass. In our opinion, this makes sense, however, we can't help but feel like this is something Xbox should have had going not long after the launch of game pass. The people who are on game pass now or most xbox/PC gamers have probably had game pass at some point in the past. It's hard to say who this would benefit at this point in time, but it's cool they're doing this nontheless. Each free trial/referred friend will get all the perks of Game Pass Ultimate it seems, so they can enjoy it on both console & PC. As per xbox.com - for new...

There is no shortage of "Pro" style controllers for gamers these days. Asus has decided to throw their hat into the ring with their new Raikiri Pro for the Xbox line of consoles. This new Pro-style controller dubbed the "Raikiri Pro" is officially licensed by Microsoft and sports a 1.3" OLED screen for various functions such as Microphone status, battery life and more. The Raikiri Pro sports "Tri-Connectivity" and it's the first officially licensed xbox controller to do so allowing players to connect to devices via Bluetooth, low-latency 2.4GHz , or USB-C. respectively. This is useful for using the controller on the PC, xbox, smartphone or even a smart TV with Xbox Game Pass. The controller also features a ESS DAC, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a mute button you'd come to expect for an xbox controller. Of course it sports all features you would expect from a "Pro" controller, including remappable buttons, adjusting joystick sensitivity and dead zones, and different trigger...

Google has officially confirmed that Stadia is coming to an end. You can expect it to close January 18th, 2023.

Google plans to issue refunds to anyone who purchased any Stadia hardware through the Google Store alongside games and addons. The refunds will be expected to be issued come mid January. You can check out their Stadia FAQ by visiting this link

From their official blog:

“A few years ago, we also launched a consumer gaming service, Stadia. And while Stadia’s approach to streaming games for consumers was built on a strong technology foundation, it hasn’t gained the traction with users that we expected so we’ve made the difficult decision to begin winding down our Stadia streaming service.” Employees on the Stadia team will be distributed to other parts of the company.

Sony reveals Dualsense Edge - Their take on a pro-style controller for PS5.
  • 925
  • 5
Sony just unveiled the Dualsense Edge. Sony's take on a pro-style controller akin to Microsoft's Elite Series controllers. The dualsense edge appears to have customizable analog sticks, back paddles and triggers. This is what we know so far:

Ultra-customizable controls: You can make the DualSense Edge wireless controller uniquely yours by remapping or deactivating specific button inputs and fine-tuning your aim by adjusting stick sensitivity and dead zones (the distance your analog stick moves before it’s recognized in a game). In addition, each trigger is adjustable with options to tailor travel distance and dead zones to your preference. For example, you can manually reduce travel distance of the triggers for faster inputs in competitive FPS games or reduce the dead zone for precise throttle control in racing games.


Ability to save multiple control profiles: Once you’ve found your ideal control...
Elon Musk now owns Twitter. The internet is exploding over it.

Elon Musk has finalized his bid to purchase Twitter today and Twitter has accepted his offer. He is now the sole owner of Twitter Inc. Musk has purchased Twitter under the guise of protecting Free Speech. We will have to wait and see what happens going forward but people seem to be torn about this acquisition. Revillution has never been a political website, nor will it ever be, but it does seem people on one particular side of the political aisle are very unhappy about Elon buying Twitter and taking it 'private'. We will just have to wait and see what happens. Could we see the unbanning of certain figures in the future? Could we potentially see new features people have been asking for, such as an edit button? What would you like to see from the social media platform going forward?

What do you think of Elon Musk buying Twitter for 43 Billion in cash?
User data given to hackers posing as law enforcement by Apple, Discord and Facebook

It would seem that Discord, Apple and Facebook have all accidentally given user data over to hackers who were posing as law enforcement. The demands were forged to look genuine and they reportedly came from authentic email accounts. Facebook and Apple are said to have handed over basic details such as address, phone number and IP Address where Discord was said to have handed over the internet address history of Discord accounts tied to a specific phone number

Snapchat was also targeted by the hackers but it is unknown if they handed anything over that was requested at this time.

Twitch working on new music deal to end DMCA strikes for streamers.
  • 1,394

Twitch is currently sorting out a deal with the National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA) to come to an agreement or licensing deal for streamers so that they are no longer hit with DMCA strikes on their content. So what does this mean for streamers on Twitch if this deal manages to be inked and go through? Well it would appear that streamers will be able to play the music of their choice without the worry of being hit with a copyright strike or DMCA claim within reason. The closure of Mixer last July has caused Twitch's platform to boom in popularity, as a perfect storm of a global pandemic and the closure of Mixer by Microsoft, forced content creators to funnel onto the platform. However, many Mixer streamers often played copyright music on stream using featurees on their bots such as Song Requests which allowed their viewers to request a song of their choice to play in the background of the stream. However, within the past year many streamers now on Twitch have...
