Reliable Leaker Casts Shade on PS5 Price and 4K Capabilities

Aesthetic Gamer has a pretty good history of accurate leaks, but they are usually associated with games. This time around, he’s claiming that not only with the PlayStation 5 cost more than the Xbox Series X but that it will struggle with delivering 4K – something Sony is said to be combating with “Fake 4K,” whatever that means. With AG’s experience in leaking Resident Evil information, with the most recent leak being that Resident Evil Village will be the longest of the series thus far. That said, it shouldn’t be surprising that this leak about the PS5 is directly related to Resident Evil Village (RE8). (2/3) But people are should get ready for the really real possibility that the PS5 is going to end up being the more expensive console between the two, I'm trying not to say much here as I was asked not to but prepare yourself, which does put Xbox X in a position it'll be the— AestheticGamer aka Dusk Golem (@AestheticGamer1) August 12, 2020 In this specific post, he claims...

The PS5 Is Really Big and Xbox’s Phil Spencer Explains Why

There are a lot of fundamental differences between the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5, but one of the most noticeable is the difference in size. The Series X isn’t exactly small, but it’s nowhere near as large as the PS5. During his guest appearance on Animal Talking, Phill Spencer weighed in on why the PS5 is so large and why the Xbox Series X is able to be a bit smaller. Believe it or not, for the man behind Xbox, he’s given us the most logical reasoning so far. During his time on Animal Talking, Spencer was asked about the aesthetics of both next-gen consoles, and he explained that engineers from both sides of the pond faced a lot of the same issues, one of the most prominent being the challenge that is keeping the consoles cool. The difference in size between the two actually boils down to how both engineering teams tackled the same problem. https://youtu.be/1-DdCjlH99U Spencer’s speculation about the PS5 is that since its GPU has 36 Compute Units clocked at 2.23 GHz,...

Halo Infinite Multiplayer: Free-to-Play and Developed Alongside Pro Gamers

Let’s be honest – if you set PUBG and Fortnite aside, most people are divided in two groups: Halo players and Call of Duty players. And, now that we’ve seen what was essentially a low-res demonstration of Halo Infinite’s campaign, we’re all really itching to see what Halo Infinite Multiplayer is going to bring to the table. Well, if you fall into that group, then we’ve got good news for you. Not only did 343 Industries rely on pro Halo gamers for development advice, but it’s also looking back to what was one of the best Halo multiplayer experiences in the game’s long and rarely tarnished history. Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer will Build off Halo 5’s Multiplayer Element First off, we still don’t get to see what Halo Infinite Multiplayer looks like, but we will get a peek “soon.” However, Phil Spencer has teased a little bit of what we can expect, and it sounds pretty damn good. Speaking with YouTuber iJustine, Spencer confirmed that Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer will build off the multiplayer element from Halo 5:...

Valve CEO Says the Xbox Series X is Better Than PS5 on Live TV

This isn’t the first time that we’ve visited the question of whether the Xbox Series X is better than the PlayStation 5 or vice versa. Industry insiders seem to claim that the PS5 is better, and an Epic Game’s boss has even said that the PS5’s SSD is “way ahead” of high-end PCs. At the same time, the Series X has had it’s own early fan club, the latest of which is Valve President and CEO, Gabe Newell. Newell has been stationed in New Zealand for a little while now, and has recently been doing a media tour to thank New Zealanders for letting him hunker down amid the coronavirus pandemic. His most recent stop was a current affairs show known as The Project where the hosts asked him a number of gaming related questions, the most prominent of which was which new console you should buy this holiday season and which is better.

343 Industries Shoots Down Halo Infinite Multiplayer Rumors

In what seemed like just minutes after Halo Infinite’s first campaign gameplay trailer went live, YouTuber Brad Sams citied an unknown source who claims that Halo Infinite multiplayer wouldn’t be available at launch. As it turns out, Sammy boy probably just wanted some extra video views and subscribers because 343 Industries Community Director, Brian Jarrard, put that rumor down as quickly as it came to life. Nothing to see here folks, this is not true.— Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) July 24, 2020 Coming at the same time fans were complaining about graphics, this specific rumor seemed extremely odd. Microsoft and 343 Industries said beforehand that the first gameplay showcase would focus on the campaign and that multiplayer would be shown at a future event, long before launch. Then, if you factor in that Halo Infinite is one of primary launch games for the Xbox Series X, the rumor makes even less sense. The only thing that made the rumor even somewhat believable is that it’s been said that 343 is scaling back plans for a...

Don’t Believe What You Saw – Halo Infinite Will Look Way Better At Launch

So, you watched the Halo Infinite gameplay trailer and immediate got upset because that didn’t look next-gen, right? Well, you’re not the only one. A lot of fans were up in arms about the overall graphic display, but nobody stopped to think that the game might just be a work in progress, let alone the fact that it wasn’t even streaming in 4k60. And, that was the case, and now Xbox Marketing Boss, Aaron Greenberg, as set out to clear the air a bit in an interview with Inside Gaming, basically admitting that what we saw isn’t fully representative of what the game will look like when it launches with the Xbox Series X. “We're in the middle of a global pandemic. It's July, we're far from holiday . You're seeing a work in progress game. You probably watched the stream in 1080p, maybe, so we have put up a 4K60 on-demand stream. So people, I'd say, go back to look at the game in 4K60. We did that deliberately. It's very hard to show...

Project xCloud Name Change Imminent, And It Might Succeed where Stadia and YouTube Have Failed

We just announced that Project xCloud – Microsoft’s game streaming service – would soon be integrated into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at no additional cost. Now we’ve learned that even more details will come to light in August 2020, just one month before that integration happens. One of those big details will likely be a new name, but according to Xbox Head, Phil Spencer, in an interview with The Verge, an official and final name has yet to be decided on. “This isn’t the official name, but you should think about it as Game Pass streaming or Xbox streaming, something like that. We actually don’t have the final name just yet, but it won’t be Project xCloud.” And, Xbox isn’t planning to sleep easy on xCloud – or whatever it will be called – as it is. The company has big plans that could put it in a position to knock Google Stadia and even YouTube down a peg. As you recall, the idea with game streaming services, at least in part, has been to offer...

Microsoft is Killing off the Xbox One as Launch of the Xbox Series X Nears

As the launch of the Xbox Series X draws near, Microsoft has confirmed that most of the Xbox One family will soon be discontinued. It seems like an odd move considering most next-gen games will be backward compatible and is expected to serve as a gateway to Project xCloud, but the Xbox One S will remain while the standard Xbox One and One X bidding farewell. This was confirmed to The Verge by a Microsoft rep, who said the following: “As we ramp into the future with Xbox Series X, we’re taking the natural step of stopping production on Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Xbox One S will continue to be manufactured and sold globally.” On top of this, a number of media outlets have reported that the SKU for the 12 month Xbox Live Gold subscription is also being discontinued, leaving the option to buy the 1- and 3-month subscription only. Again, another odd move – especially with alerting consumders – considering the 12-month subscription was the most economical way to...

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Will Soon Include Project xCloud for Free

Microsoft’s Project xCloud game streaming service has been in the works for a while now, with limited public beta testing ongoing for the last year or so. Now, we’re learning that the service is going to be greatly expanded and made available to just about everyone. Starting September 2020, just a month or two before the Xbox Series X launches, Microsoft will be adding Project xCloud to its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscription. Don’t know what that is? Well, for $14.99 per month, you get access to Xbox Game Pass on Xbox and PC along with your Xbox Live subscription. So, basically access to more than 100 games, online multiplayer capability, and – pretty soon – the ability to stream those games (and any other digital purchases that are compatible) to your phone or tablet. In a post on Xbox Wire, Xbox head Phil Spencer laid it all out: "Cloud gaming in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate means your games are no longer locked to the living room. You can connect more than ever with friends and family...
