We’re at a very strange phase in this console generation, with the mid-cycle Scorpio and PS4 Pro upgrades dropping shortly. But that doesn’t mean it’s game over for the Xbox One. That’s according to Forza Horizon 3’s creative director, Ralph Fulton, who told the highly respected video games journal tabloid newspaper The Daily Star that there’s life in the original Xbox One yet. He said: How much more can you push out of it [The Xbox One]? I would probably just say don’t give up on Xbox One, just yet. It may be easy to consider the original Xbox One … Read More »

The Xbox One S is a pretty cool console, but it seems there’s a slight problem under the bonnet when it comes to movie playback – light-bleeding when playing 4K UHD discs with HDR turned on. You can check out the image below, for an example, courtesy of AV Forums: The issue, which doesn’t appear to affect streaming, but is limited to physical media playback, was first caught by a poster on Reddit. Others joined to say they’d suffered the same issues – particularly on Sony, LG and Vizio TVs. According to one poster there: There seems to be a … Read More »

Console wars are thing among fans of games.  I don’t really see a point because I believe it should be play what makes you happy for whatever reason.  Hardware developers strive to be the best selling console manufacturers on the market but don’t ten to let things like mud slinging get into the mix.  Microsoft however seems to be taking a more direct and vocal approach to take down Sony’s console sales lead. Over the last month, Microsoft and Sony have announced and/or launched new consoles with additional features.  Microsoft launched the new Xbox One S and back at E3 … Read More »

The closer the release to PS4 Neo, the more news and rumours about Project Scorpio start creeping up from all corners of the internet. And, to no surprise, one of these rumours was that Project Scorpio will run native 4K visuals on all their games, rather than simply upscaling 1080p. Shannon Loftis, Publishing General Manager for Microsoft has confirmed in a recent interview with USA Today, that Project Scorpio will natively run all first party games in 4K. Any game made by Microsoft Studios that is. “Any games we’re making that we’re launching in the Scorpio time frame, we’re making sure they can natively render … Read More »

With the anticipation of what Microsoft has up their sleeves with the “most powerful gaming console ever” aka Project Scorpio, we know very little about what we can expect from the console when it launches end of 2017.  Lucky for us though Microsoft’s Albert Penello shed some light on what developers are going to do with the monster hardware and what we can expect as well. Scorpio is known as the console that will be able to render 4K UHD (ultra high definition) graphics at an impressive 60 frames per second.  Does this mean every game on Scorpio is going … Read More »

So with Gamescom underway this year and a few trailers dropping, The creators of Gears of war 4 (The Coalition) decided it was their turn. They dropped a 4K game-play video of the new gears game (Gears 4) that sees the gears squad that is led by JD Fenix go through what looks like a church and graveyard that has new and old forms of locust along the way, During the game-play they show off classic weapons like the chainsaw and that all important shotgun and new unique weapons like the buzzkill. Whilst it shows off new weapons they also … Read More »

So it’s finally here – The Xbox One S, now you’re probably wondering to yourself is it worth it?……. Should I buy one?……. If I do, what do I need? and what’s all this 4k stuff about? It’s definitely confusing if you happen to be a very ‘un-techy’ gamer. Let’s take a look at what it’s all about and, hopefully, we can shed some light on the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of the Xbox One S. The Xbox One S features 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 4K video streaming and High Dynamic Range (HDR) for games and video. Sounds fancy, but what does … Read More »

At E3 2016, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One S and hyped the console’s redesigned form and new features – but did they kill that hype just two and a half hours later? Microsoft shook the gaming industry by revealing the Xbox One S (which was leaked the day prior) at the beginning of their show, but then showed the world their future vision with Project Scorpio.  The show concluded with a muddy message from Microsoft – a slimmer redesigned Xbox One available towards the end of 2016, and a highly enhanced, far more powerful Xbox One set to appear just twelve months later. The question … Read More »

Now, we’re not saying this is anything like the debacle of the Xbox One launch, but there have been some pretty muddy and confusing messages about future Xbox One hardware following the Xbox E3 briefing a couple of weeks ago. We are happy to clear one thing up, though. The Xbox One S – with its 4K Ultra HD output – will upscale all Xbox One games to 4K. None other than Mike Ybarra, Head of Xbox & Windows Gaming Platform at Microsoft, has made that emphatically clear. @XboxQwik Can you confirm if xbox one s will upscale games to … Read More »
