Be that as it may, Cyberpunk 2077 players on PC will have a huge advantage over console...

PUBG Goes Next-Gen But It Doesn’t Mean Much

If you’re unaware, PUBG was just the subject of a major upgrade that allows you to push game performance up to 60 FPS on the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. Now, PUBG Corp has announced that PUBG will be making the move to the Xbox Series X, Series S, and PS5, and will be available on launch day. It’s said the game will be taking advantage of next-gen hardware, but will it really? According to PUBG Corp., PUBG will be available on launch day, so you’ll be able to download it to your new Series XS or PS5 right away. As a reminder, that’s November 10th for the new Series XS, and November 12 for the PS5. Those of you in the U.K. and Europe, will get your next-gen consoles on November 19 and PUBG will be waiting. The big news is that PUBG...

Halo 5- Looking Good On Xbox Series X, But An Upgrade Is Out of the Question

With the Xbox Series X and Series S right around the corner, we’re now learning that Halo 5 won’t be going through a full-on upgrade for the next-gen consoles. You will, however, get to experience faster loading times and “consistently higher resolution gameplay,” so that’s better than nothing, right? This bit of news comes courtesy of 343 Industries as part of the recent Halo Waypoint update. There was a lot to be taken in, but a big piece of that is that Halo 5 won’t be privy to the same optimizations for the Series XS that will make their way to Halo: The Master Chief Collection. That series of games will be enhanced to run at 4K and 120 FPS on the Series X and at 120 FPS in 1080P on the Series S. This comes along with cross-geneation gameplay, better split-screen gaming, and faster...

Porting Xbox Exclusives to Nintendo Switch Is Probably Short-lived

Nintendo and Xbox have a pretty good relationship – much better than Xbox’s relationship with Sony, anyway. That relationship is why some Microsoft exclusives, like Ori and the Will of the Wisps launched on Switch. Porting Xbox games over to the Nintendo Switch seems like an awesome idea, especially since Nintendo doesn’t seem keen on allowing game streaming to happen anytime soon. But, as it turns out, there might not be any more Xbox Exclusives coming to Nintendo unless the relationship between the two companies blossoms into a full-blown love affair. This news comes directly from the mouth of Xbox Head, Phil Spencer in an interview with Kotaku. While the previous Xbox-to-Switch ports have been loved and fairly successful, Spencer says that the approach to these ports “doesn’t feel sustainable.” And, it won’t be sustainable, apparently, until Nintendo and Microsoft are able to deliver a...

The List of Xbox Series X Launch Games Isn’t As Good As You Hoped

With just a month to go before the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S officially launch, Microsoft has finally announced its list of day-one launch games along with cross-gen releases. The full list also include games that support Smart Delivery – games that will be upgraded for free to next-gen hardware – and what games will be available on Xbox Games Pass. It should be noted that this list doesn’t include any brand-new first-party Xbox Games, but it does mark the arrival of Gears Tactics to console after its PC release earlier in 2020. Console exclusives like Tetris Effect: Connected and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, but these games are available on current-gen platforms – they just won’t be available on the PlayStation 5 until mid-2021. In addition, you can count on all the games currently available on Xbox Games Pass unless Microsoft adds or...

Xbox Series S vs. Xbox Series X – Making the Right Choice

Following a leak, Microsoft finally confirmed the existence of the Xbox Series S and its price point of just $299. Just days after that happened, we learned that the smaller SSD (1TB in the Series X vs. 512GB in the Series S) is what makes a $299 next-gen console possible. With that in mind, however, there’s a lot more that sets the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S apart, so let’s take a deep look into the specifications and why you should go with one console over the other. Xbox Series S – Dulled Down For the Sake of Affordability The Xbox Series S is still more powerful than even the Xbox One X and the PlayStation 5 as we know it now. However, its hardware is no match for the Xbox Series X. As you already know, the 512 GB SSD is said to be...

Xbox Series X Pricing, Pre-Orders, Launch Date, and Subscription

Following a surprise reveal of the smaller and cheaper Xbox Series S, Microsoft has gone all out and revealed that the Xbox Series X will launch on November 10 with a price of $499. Pre-orders will kick off within a couple of weeks, and you can even buy it via Microsoft’s subscription model. Xbox Series X Launch Date and Pre-Ordering The Xbox Series X officially launches on November 10, 2020 and pre-orders will kick off on Tuesday September 22, 2020. This is the same launch and pre-order dates given for those of you in the United Kingdom, so it should be the same for all of Europe as well. Xbox Series X Pricing In the United States, the Xbox Series X has an MSRP of $499 while those of you in the U.K. will have to pay £449. Pricing outside of these two markets, however, will vary as...

Microsoft Has Confirmed The Compact Xbox Series S

Following in quick succession after a rather enticing leak, Microsoft hasn’t only confirmed that the Xbox Series S exists but also that it’ll have a retail price of just $299 in the United States, €299.99 in Europe, and £249.99 in the U.K. As you can see from the image above, the Xbox Series S looks very similar to the current Xbox One S, including the single USB port and the “X” power button. The image also confirms that it can sit either vertically or horizontally as you’d expect. Apparently, the Xbox Series S is so small that you can fit it inside the new Xbox Series X. Obviously, the Series S doesn’t have a disc drive, but will it be as “next-gen capable” as the larger Xbox Series X? What Makes the Xbox Series S Different From the Series X? https://www.facebook.com/xbox/photos/a.91876221022/10158450524706023/ Outside of the obvious difference in size,...

Xbox Boss Says He’s Not In a Console War With PlayStation

Every 5-7 years something big happens: the big console war between Microsoft and Sony. We’re on the dawn of a new console war, or at least we thought we were, but that’s apparently not the case. In Phil Spencer’s same sit down with Animal Talking  where he discussed why the PS5 is so big, he also explained that Microsoft isn’t in the business of competing in a console war this time around. In fact, one could argue that it’s the exact opposite, as Spencer says it’s about building an experience. In short, the competition between the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will be fundamentally different compared to what we saw for the Xbox one and PS4 or the Xbox 360 and PS3. “We want people to feel like they're a member of Xbox. And that membership in Xbox isn't about one device, it can be...
