Days after the release of rival console PS4 Pro, Microsoft execs have been discussing their own upcoming games machine, Project Scorpio. The console may not be due to arrive until this time next year, but that hasn’t stopped Aaron Greenberg, Head of Xbox Games Marketing, from declaring that Scorpio will be capable of delivering ‘really true 4K’. Which is a technical term, we assume. He made the statement at Mexico City’s Xbox FanFest, where he said: This will really bring the most powerful console you've ever seen. It will bring these really true 4K, really incredible visual games that we've ... Read More »
Even though the rerelease of Skyrim isn't until 28 October, Bethesda is already accepting mods for the upcoming hit.  They are also taking way more mods on Xbox One than they are on PS4. Currently there are at least 65 mods available for Xbox One on Bethesda.net listings however only 10 on PS4.  All of the PS4 mods are also on Xbox One. One of the biggest reasons for the discrepancy is due to Sony limiting modders to only tweaking current features.  Microsoft is allowing for on changes to mechanics.  With this freedom, Xbox modders will have a total of ...

Phil Spencer has opened up about Xbox One’s performance in Japan, in an interview with Famitsu magazine. It’s no secret that the Xbox One has performed abysmally in Japan – the launch was pretty embarrassing, with interest levels low and just a handful of consoles sold. A lot of commentators have put that down to various reasons: Mobile gaming is more popular, and Microsoft being a western company, unlike rival Sony have been cited for the poor release. Now Xbox chief, Phil Spencer has discussed why he thinks the console has failed to ignite the East. In a frank exchange, ... 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 »
Xbox One sales are tricky to judge, since Microsoft has always refused to officially confirm how many of the consoles they’ve actually shifted, unlike their Sony rivals. Current estimates range from 17 to 20 million – but what we do know is that it’s looking like Xbox has seen a significant increase in sales over the last week. And it’s all thanks to the Xbox One S. The streamlined, slim-line white console with its 2TB hard drive and HDR support has sold phenomenally well since its release on 2nd August. We already knew it had sold out in the UK, ... Read More »
Cross-platform play is one of those holy grails in gaming – we’ve seen it before, rarely, but that’s mostly been limited to consoles and PC. What the fans really want is for the two dominant forces in console gaming to get together and allow gamers across the spectrum play together. Microsoft have said they’re up for it. A number of developers have said they’re up for it. Even Psyonix, the studio behind the fantastic Rocket League, have said they could make it happen within hours of the ok. There’s only one thing holding it all back: Sony. Now, in an interview ... Read More »
Earlier in the year Microsoft dropped the bombshell of cross-platform play and even put forward the concept of gamers from Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network playing together. Sony responded in a general sense, but seemed to be indecisive about working with their primary competitor in the console world. Fast forward to today and the co-creator of Xbox Ed Fries has made it known that he too is hopeful that Sony will get on board with the cross-platform play effort whilst in an interview with IGN. "I hope that Sony is going to respond. It's good to see some of ... Read More »
