  • Super’s Lucky Tale Targeting Native 4K and 60FPS on Xbox One X- Report
    Bald Bouncer
    The Xbox One X is ostensibly the most powerful home console ever made- but the question remains, how many developers will actually bother utilizing and leveraging its extra power, since they have to target the base Xbox One and Xbox One S as well?


    Well, apparently Playful is doing that with its upcoming Super’s Lucky Tale, the full 3D platforming sequel to the former Oculus Rift exclusive. The game, which is due to launch on November 7 right alongside the Xbox One X, will apparently...

  • Microsoft Exec: Third Party Devs Blown Away By Xbox One X
    Bald Bouncer
    We’ve heard a lot about the Xbox One X in the last few days, about what its capable of and how it has amazed the developers who have been working on it, from Ubisoft to Turn 10. As per Aaron Greenberg, who is the marketing manager of Xbox, that has been the general consensus among almost every developer that has worked on an Xbox One X dev kit so far.


    “There’s a lot of third party partners, where each week we hear more stories about ‘hey, we got our dev kits, this is what...

  • Destiny 2 on Xbox One X Has No Enhancements Planned
    Bald Bouncer
    Yesterday, it was revealed that Bungie’s Destiny 2 will run at 30 FPS on the Xbox One X, ignoring all the power the console has to possibly provide a 60 FPS experience. However, as it turns out, the Xbox One X version of the shooter has no enhancements planned for the Xbox One X whatsoever. This was confirmed when WCCFTech spoke to Bungie design lead Lars Bakken who specifically said the developer was aiming for the same experience on all platforms.


    So no higher resolution textures,...

  • Crackdown 3 Will Support Dolby Atmos On Xbox One X
    Bald Bouncer
    At Microsoft’s E3 presser yesterday, Crackdown 3 was confirmed to be launching on November 7 this year, which is also when the Xbox One X will launch. For those of you who’re wondering if the game will take full advantage of the Xbox One X’s specs, it will do just that- well, more or less.


    In an interview with Geoff Keighley, Clint Bundrick, who is working as a design director on Crackdown 3, gave the full laydown on what the game will look like on the Xbox One X. “You’ll...

  • Original Xbox ‘Duke’ Controller Releasing For Xbox One and PC Later This Year
    Bald Bouncer
    The original Xbox controller, called the ‘Duke’, was an utter monstrosity. It was big, misshapen, and so bad that Microsoft ended up redesigning it into something called the Xbox Controller S- a wonderful controller that set the standard for all Xbox controllers going forward.


    People, however, are weird, and there are many who unironically hold nostalgia for the Duke. Those strange people will be happy to know that the controller will be returning this year- Hyperkin has announced...

  • Sea of Thieves On The Xbox One X Is Beautiful, Says Developer

    Sea of Thieves was one of the highlights of Microsoft’s press conference at E3 yesterday. Not only did it play the way you would want it to – at least in the few minutes that we saw of it – it also looked really, really good in visual terms. And developers Rare feel that the game will look even more beautiful in true 4K on the Xbox One X.


    Speaking in an interview with Geoff Keighley, the game’s design director Mike Chapman spoke at length about how the game will look running...

    Xbox Scorpio Now Gives 9GB Of Usable GDDR5 RAM

    The Xbox Scorpio has 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, which is 4GB more than the standard Xbox One.

    Phil Spencer Teases Microsoft’s E3 Games Line-up

    For Microsoft, this E3 is important - Sony is the strongest it has ever been, and Nintendo is resurgent. This means that what was initially a single front war is now a two front one for them. So of course, they need to have something meaningful planned for E3, right?


    Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, was asked about Microsoft’s E3 plans during an interview with Xbox On, and he shared some thoughts on what to look forward to.

  • Star Wars Battlefront 2 On Xbox Scorpio Will Deliver An Experience Like Never Before

    Star Wars: Battlefront 2 may be one of the most anticipated games of this year, and Sony may have advertising rights for it- but Microsoft isn’t going to let any opportunity to promote the Xbox version of the game pass, either.

  • ‘We Have Something For Everyone,’ Says ID@Xbox Boss

    Xbox has made massive strides in providing a supportive environment for independent game developers - while it blazed the trail in this area with the Xbox 360, it had begun to fall behind by the end of the generation, especially as rival Sony and even Nintendo caught up. With the introduction of the Xbox One, it seemed as though Microsoft was hell bent on burning bridges with a community it had once fostered.


    That was then- things have improved massively since then, and Xbox...
