Xbox Series S Officially(!) Announced

You may have seen it in insider leaks, from the booklets in controllers or even on leaflets for Gamepass, but Microsoft have finally decided to announce the Xbox Series S. The worst kept secret in gaming is also shaping up to be the best value entry into the next generation. At just $299/£250 you get a console that will play all next-generation games with a target of 1080p. Since the advert boasts 100 games on Gamepass, I think it’s safe…

Microsoft Has The Best Console Ever And Now Is The Time To Prove It

This week’s deep dive into the Xbox Series X has proven what a lot of us already know: this console is going to be a beast. Edging out the PS5 in terms of raw power and with the potential of things like machine learning on top, this could well be the greatest generation for Xbox fans. But don’t take my word for it, it’s Microsoft that has to prove themselves. But that’s where all this falls down, because thus far…

Coronavirus will hurt PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X

The Console Pricing Cold War is Killing Hype

Clint Eastwood walks out into the street, his whiskey-faced opponent staring him down from what seems like a mile away. The sun burns, but it’s not the heat that’s making them both sweat. Soon one of them could be dead. They stare at each other. And stare. Then there’s some more staring. Thirty minutes later, no shot fired, and everybody in the cinema has gone home.

More Thoughts From Me #232: What’s Important

Fake News has Become the Main Weapon of the Console Wars

Did you hear? Microsoft don’t see Sony as a competitor anymore. They don’t believe in generations. Hell, they don’t even care how many Series X consoles they sell. None of that is true, by the way, but don’t let that get in the way of a good dig at Xbox. It’s easier to pretend your most hated piece of plastic is a mess when you choose to follow carefully selected pieces of propaganda instead of, I don’t know, reading the…
