  • 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...

    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.

    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,...

  • 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 in 4K, citing, more than anything, the game’s water effects. “It looks great on all platforms,” he said. “But you can imagine the beautiful art style, the water, the storm gameplay which was never seen before today, how great that looks in 4K. It’s truly incredible.”

    “What was important for us all the time was creating immersive world,” Chapman continued. “This place where you can sail off into the horizon, have these memorable adventures with your friends. But to see that in 4K, it’s a beautiful thing- that great water, running at that fidelity. It’s incredible.”

    Chapman, however, also went on to assure fans that even if you’re not playing Sea of Thieves on the Xbox One X, the game is still going to look and play great. “But at the same time, it’s gonna run great on Xbox One,” he said. “It’s also on Windows 10, so depending on the power of your device that you’re using, you’re gonna have a great experience. We want to make sure that people on lower powered hardware get a great experience as well.”

    To be completely fair, the game did look very good. And those water and storm effects that Chapman talked about were indeed very impressive.
