Unboxing Live 183: Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller

Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Limited Edition console unboxing! This isn't our typical unboxing where I explain the product in detail, unfortunately, as we had a mishap early on in the video that I needed to take care of, as you'll see. Still, Darth Vader shines here in all his glory, emblazoned across the box of the limited edition Playstation 4, as well as right on the PS4 console itself. The bundle also includes a custom Star Wars PS4 controller which you won't find anywhere else, as well as a hard copy of Star Wars: Battlefront.

You can order the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 now.

Unboxing Live 174: Amiibo Retro 3-Pack (Duck Hunt, R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch)

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Toys, Video Games, Videocasts

It's time for an amiibo blast from the past with the Retro 3-Pack! Included in this set are Duck Hunt (the dog with the duck flying above), Mr. Game and Watch (the predecessor to the Game Boy), and R.O.B. (the robot peripheral for the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System.)

I give you an up-close look at each of these old school amiibo characters, which work great with Super Smash Bros U and 3DS! Let me know your thoughts in the comments - I thought Mr. Game and Watch was pretty cool the way you could change his pose, and the detail in R.O.B. was awesome.

Unboxing Live 150: Nintendo 3DS (Flame Red)

Nintendo is phasing out the original Nintendo 3DS here in the United States, but we wanted to take a final look at the Flame Red Nintendo 3DS hardware before saying goodbye. I think this is the best looking of all the Nintendo 3DS colors. I bring you a tour of the hardware in this episode. If you want to get your hands on one of these, get it quick - you can pick up the Flame Red Nintendo 3DS on Amazon!

Wii U unboxing

Nintendo's next big home console, the Wii U, is set to launch here in the US in a week-and-a-half on November 18. That's typically when we'd expect to see unboxing videos start appearing online, but Nintendo president Satoru Iwata took advantage of his position, getting the jump on everyone with a nice head start. We've got the video below, after the break, of Iwata unboxing the Wii U Deluxe Edition console, showing off the system hardware, GamePad, and all the packed-in accessories. Check it out, and let us know in the comments if you plan on picking up a Wii U for yourself!

Unboxing Live 070: OnLive Game System

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Video Games, Videocasts

In this episode we open up the OnLive Game System. If you are unfamiliar, OnLive offers streaming gaming, similar to the way Netflix offers streaming movies. You fire up the OnLive service on your PC, Mac, or on the Microconsole (featured in this video), choose a game you want to play, and it works on demand. The library of titles availabie is absolutely huge, and you can pretty much play them all for one fee. We give you a look at the OnLive Microconsole, as well as their wireless controller in this episode of Unboxing Live with Andru Edwards.

Unboxing Live 067: Astro Mixamp 5.8 and A30 headphones

In this episode we give you a look at the Astro Mixamp 5.8, the company's new accessory that allows up to four users to enjoy wireless 7.1 surround sound from their gaming console or PC. The cool thing about the Mixamp is that since it uses 5.8 GHz technology (rather than the overcrowded 2.4 GHz space,) you get nice, clear sound. This means that even late at night, you can mute your surround sound system and just have all the sound sent to the headphones - and it'll even do both game sounds as well as chat. Nice stuff!

Unboxing Live 066: Kinect for Xbox 360

Microsoft has been hyping Kinect for Xbox 360 for about a year and a half now, and it's finally arrived. Our Kinect review is just about ready, but in the meantime, enjoy the unboxing video. We give you a look at the Kinect sensor, the pack-in title, and the differences between setting up Kinect with an original Xbbox 360, versus one of the new Xbox 3360 S models.

Kinect sensor unboxing gallery

We got our hands on the Kinect sensor for Xbox 360 a day before launch, and we've been putting the motion gaming peripheral through its paces for the past five days now in preparation for our Kinect review. It'll be up later today, but in the meantime, we figured we'd share some unboxing shots of the Kinect unit. It's deceptively larger than it appears to be in product shots--it's a substantial piece of technology. It matches up perfectly with the redesigned Xbox 360 S model that was introduced back at E3 as well. Get a look at all the shots in our Kinect unboxing gallery.

Unboxing Live 053: DJ Hero Renegade edition

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Video Games, Videocasts

In this episode we open up the DJ Hero Renegade edition set. DJ Hero is the new turntable-based rhythm game featuring hip-hop, electronic, and rock music, and the Renegade Edition has a bunch of premium touches, and is also available just for a limited time. We show it all in this edition of Unboxing Live.

By the way, if you like music and haven’t played DJ Hero, you owe it to yourself to check it out. In our opinion, this is better than any Guitar Hero or Rock Band game that has come before it, in the way that you interact with the music, and the totally unique pairings that they throw at you. We are definitely DJ Hero believers! You can pick up DJ Hero on Amazon.
