Microsoft Unveils Sea Of Thieves Themed Xbox One Controller

Sea of Thieves, Rare's swashbuckling multiplayer pirate game, is coming out soon. If you're excited about the game, a Sea of Thieves-themed limited edition controller is coming out even sooner, and it looks real snazzy.

Pictured above and in the media gallery below, the controller features a deep purple, translucent design along with green that looks like sprinkled sand. The green skull in the middle is also glow-in-the-dark. Another interesting aesthetic feature is how the right trigger is gold, almost like a single golden tooth in a pirate's grin.

The controller becomes available as of February 6, and is priced $74.99.

Sneak A Peek At What Metal Gear Solid Is Like Behind The Cameras In This Youtube Video

Metal Gear Solid is known for its secrets and Easter Eggs. Creator Hideo Kojima loves to throw players for a loop, a knack which was apparent even in the 1998 PlayStation entry. But aside from all the intentionally-laid secrets, there are few even Kojima didn't want players to find.

In this week's episode of Boundary Break, Youtuber Shesez dives into the early 3D masterpiece. Learn how puddles are actually holes, what actually happens when Meryl steals Johnny Sasaki's uniform, and how the tunnel in the escape sequence is more of a treadmill.

Steam Reveals The Most Popular PC Specs For December 2017

Steam Reveals The Most Popular PC Specs For December 2017

Steam is a powerhouse in the PC gaming space, reaching a recent milestone of over 18 million concurrent users. Every month, the company surveys its users to find out what operating system, video card, and other PC components they use, and the results often give a glimpse into how well the average user is running PC games.

The latest results shouldn't be too surprising, but with a number of new products released this year, it's interesting to see which ones catch on and how the power curve is distributed. To start, here are all the most common components Valve surveyed its users on. The survey is opt-in, however, so it's not a 100-percent accurate picture Steam's demographics.

Expanding each category reveals a few more tidbits. Mac OS users make up only 1.42 percent of Steam's total users, while Linux is only .26 percent. Meanwhile, only 3.30 percent of Steam users have CPUs with clock speeds of 3.7Ghz or more, which means Steam and developers are wise to focus building their games around GPU caps instead of CPU caps. Speaking of which, the 1060 being the most common video card means most PC players are just fine having a GPU comparable to an Xbox One X. Finally, the Rift being the most popular VR headset on Valve's service may lead the company to consider more options for cross-compatibility with its own HTC Vive down the line.

Valve Backs Out Of $1 Million Dota 2 Tournament Due To Drug Testing Requirement

Galaxy Battles, a tournament that was supposed to a part of Valve's new approach to tournaments leading up to The International this year, has lost its official Valve backing.

"Based on information we’ve recently confirmed regarding new government regulations for esports players entering the Philippines," Valve said on its blog, "we have decided to rescind the tournament’s Major designation, including the Pro Circuit qualifying points, for the Galaxy Battles 2018 tournament." In the post, Valve cites "unreasonable infringements on the privacy of the players, as a condition to enter the country," as the reason it is backing out of the tournament.
