Kinect TV Mount for Xbox One review – A cheap and essential accessory for many users

38

Earlier this week we published a list of must-have accessories for Xbox One. Among those is the Kinect TV Mount for Xbox One from PDP. The mount not only positions the Kinect motion control accessory above a television, it also offers a privacy cover for the Kinect camera. Maybe you do things in front of your TV that you don't want Microsoft to see; we're not here to judge.

Having already recommended the Kinect TV Mount, it's high time that we give the Xbox One accessory a proper review. Will the mount take your Kinect experience to the next level, or will it snap apart during the set-up process? Read on and check out our hands-on video for the full word!

Costco gets ready to sell Surface Pro 3 Core i5 bundle in its stores and online

72

Everyone has their favorite brick and mortar stores for buying things, and for some, it is mass-seller Costco and its chain stores. Even though Microsoft is out of the Core i5 Surface Pro 3 with 128 GB of storage, Costco is ready to sell them next week.

Heading to the Costco site, and you can find the Core i5 version up for preorder at $1,149.99. If that sounds more expensive compared to the $999 Microsoft Store version, it is only because Costco is selling the Surface as a bundle, complete with a black Type Cover and one-year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal. With the 365 inclusion, you also get an extra 1 TB of OneDrive storage and 60-minutes of free Skype calls per month.

Pig Jump, simple and challenging endless runner game with potential

16

Pig Jump is yet another endless runner styled Windows Phone game that has you jumping a pig across a river that is full of hungry crocodiles, dangerous buzzards and other perils.

To help with the chances of survival, the pig is armed with a bazooka, with an unlimited supply of ammo, that he can use to blast away the dangers the river may offer. Graphics are decent, game controls simple and Pigs Jump is available for low-memory devices. While Pig Jump isn't a terrible game to pass the time with and has slight potential.
