After the announcement of Project Scorpio at last years E3, we have heard very little information on the console proposed to be the most powerful ever. But first, let’s have a look at what we do know. Aside from the specs, XBox’s Phil Spencer has previously gone on record to say that development is coming along smoothly and ‘ahead of schedule’. Those very words whet eager fans appetite with a potential release before Holiday 2017, as was touted at E3. That was seven months away and a lot has happened in the industry since then. Look at Sony who have in … Read More »

Last year was a great year for Xbox.  With the console holding strong in sales through multiple months and gaining ground on the competition, there was plenty reasons to celebrate.  With 2016 now closed, it’s time to recap on how Xbox finished the year and they did it in style.  Some key figures reported on by corporate vice president for Xbox marketing Mike Nichols show that December 2016 was the highest sales month ever for Xbox One.  Even though the console launched in November 2013, three years later and the console sold more in that month than at launch.  On … Read More »

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has been fairly active on Twitter recently, mainly to downplay the furore caused by the cancellation of Scalebound. Not to be painted as a broken record, however, Spencer has also been talking about Project Scorpio and whether or not we’d see anything before E3 in June. Unfortunately, he doesn’t seem to have a clear answer: @Sn4kee@BeastFireTimdog Honestly not sure yet but I know people want this. — Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) January 11, 2017 It’s an absolute guarantee that Microsoft and Phil Spencer himself will be devoting a huge amount of their E3 time to hyping up … Read More »

Most people tend to agree that 2016 sucked. Too many celebrities deaths and divisive politics dampened a lot of spirits. Luckily, the Xbox team are keeping a positive outlook. Mike Nichols, VP of Marketing for Xbox, penned a reflective post on Xbox Wire about the year 2016 and its significance for the green brand. With nearly 400 new games coming out last year alone, there’s certainly a lot to reflect on! Highlights include: Forza Horizon 3 became both the best-selling and highest rated racing game of 2016, and was the biggest launch for a Forza game to date. It’s only … Read More »

What a way to bring in the new year than with video games.  They are always there when we need them and over time it just seems to get better and better.  How much longer do Xbox fans have to wait for that next best thing though?  It might not be very long at all. Once the new year hit, many Xbox heads went to Twitter and have been spewing out 2017 as the year of Scorpio.  Now we have been given very little information on the “most powerful console of all time” but there is reason to believe all … Read More »

The hardcore gaming elite know that quality is everything in a game.  Not only how well the gamer itself is but how does it run.  With newer, upgraded versions of current generation consoles coming, console gamers are eager to see a consistent 60 frames per second and possible 4K graphics.  Microsoft is trying to make it easier to obtain through universal apps and play anywhere. Backwards compatibility, Play Anywhere, and new hardware are allowing games that weren’t made for these newer consoles to thrive on better hardware.  Tomb Raider has allowed so much customisable options for frame rate, graphics, and … Read More »

We are still a approximately a year away from the Scorpio’s release. Marketed as the most powerful console ever built with true 4k graphics and VR support, the limited information we have about its specs does appear to confirm Microsofts claim. They also claim they want to maintain parity across Xbox platforms but have you wondered what could happen if developers put all the extra power to good use and what that could mean for the Xbox One versions? Bogdan Iliesiu of Angry Mob Games, currently working on Brawlout, was asked about the Scorpio by Gamingbolt. They asked whether the Scorpio’s power would … Read More »

Just when we thought that Microsoft had forgotten all about Crackdown 3, they’ve confirmed that the game is due ‘holiday 2017 or earlier.’ That’s the buzz from Dave Johnson, art director at Microsoft Studios, who confirmed the intended release date during an Extra Life livestream. Not only that, but Johnson also mentioned that Crackdown 3 will run 4K resolution on the upcoming Project Scorpio. That jives with Microsoft’s commitment to ensure all first-party games run at native 4K on the new console. Crackdown 3 has been a bit up in the air since its impressive E3 reveal – it sank … Read More »

Virtual Reality is quickly becoming a key goal for console manufacturers.  Ever since Microsoft announced Project Scorpio, they made it a point to mention a full immersive VR experience on the upcoming powerhouse console.  However, we aren’t going to have to wait long to play our Xbox One games on Oculus Rift.  Here’s what the folks at Xbox said about their next push to VR: Rift owners will be able to stream their Xbox One library to Rift with the new Xbox One Streaming to Oculus Rift app, including fan favorites like “Gears of War 4,” “Forza Horizon 3” and “Halo … Read More »
