You know, the Xbox One controller is pretty great. It features a much superior d-pad to that of the Xbox 360's, and unparalleled rumble in the trigger buttons to boot. On the other hand, the bumper buttons are a step back from the 360's, and will never be as responsive as you'd want in a game like Killer Instinct.

A company called Console Tuner is on the case. They have engineered a USB peripheral called the Titan One that lets you use Playstation 4 controllers with the Xbox One, and vice versa. In fact, you can even use Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and pretty much any USB controller on your modern consoles. You have to admit, that sounds like an especially useful accessory.

Microsoft has published a new documentary on Xbox One looking into the world of Interactive Gateway, a UK-based games studio behind the title Spectra. Louis Deane and his colleagues talk about how the startup joined the Microsoft Ventures accelerator and how the game itself came to be.

Zen Studios is best known for Pinball FX2, but this week they released two totally different games for Xbox One: CastleStorm: Definitive Edition and KickBeat: Special Edition. KickBeat started out on Playstation 3 and Vita, finally arriving on Xbox One today in this new edition.

KickBeat is a martial arts rhythm featuring an authentic Kung Fu movie-style story and plenty of hard-hitting music to fight to. This Special Edition shakes things up with an expanded soundtrack. Just prepare for a few beatdowns as you adjust to the game's fierce learning curve.

The Xbox One launched with three exclusive retail titles last year: Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, and Ryse: Son of Rome. Did you buy the system at launch or shortly thereafter, but miss out on some of those games? Or maybe you're planning to jump in with one of this fall's bundles, such as the Madden, Sunset Overdrive, and Call of Duty bundles.

If you still want any of the big launch games, you're in luck. GameStop has outed the October release of "Game of the Year" Editions (GOTY) for all three launch exclusives. These new editions will bundle the main games with some or all of their downloadable content (DLC), making them quite a bargain if you haven't got those games already. Even luckier for our awesome readers, we're here to share impressions of each game and what their new editions will offer.
