Could you help me to analyze the above sentence? what the part of speech of showing? Is it verb (present continuous)? or noun (gerund)?

I think it is present continuous:

  • A new performance review (has been conducted by NX Gamer) (is) apparently showing that the Xbox ...

  • A new review is showing that ...


I agree, Shannak - the verb in the sentence is "to show", and it's in the present continuous tense.

Furthermore, I like the approach in your second bullet: simplifying the sentence down to its most basic components. That's often a great way to analyze a sentence's structure.
