Late last night reports started circulating on Reddit that Borderlands: The Handsome Collection had accidentally been made free by Microsoft on the Xbox One store.

Turns out it was intentional and is a gift from our overlords. We're always down with Borderlands, especially free Borderlands. Grab yours by the end of the weekend. 

That was me... High fiving myself.

Killer Instinct's free to download, but with that ever infuriating Killer Instinct catch 22 payment model of charging for access to characters/content. You've the option to pay to unlock individual characters from Season 3 at $5 a piece, and bundles ranging from $20-60 tops for a Supreme Edition bundle that comes packaged with every character ever released, all costumes, all sets, all perks (exp. boosts, in-game coinage).

Microsoft held an imaginatively-named Windows 10 Devices event in New York Oct. 6. While they showed off some impressive new phones, a new Surface and a new Surface laptop, we were most interested in seeing new Hololens stuff.

We were super-impressed with the E3 Minecraft demo and have been salivating for more mind blowingness from the augmented reality helmet.

During today's event, they introduced Project X Ray and for the first time, let us see a wearable 'hologram'.



That's when the robots started bursting through the walls.



As with the Minecraft demo, we find this type of interactivity with the surrounding environment super fascinating.

Unfortunately, it's going to come at a price.

Microsoft set a developer kit price at $3,000, shipping in the first quarter of next year.

Time to start saving pennies.
