    Microsoft may have revealed the Xbox Series S and X but there is a lot more to the story than we know. Designing next-gen consoles that users will continue to enjoy for many years is not an easy task. Add to that the pressure that comes from the competitors racing alongside and we can begin to imagine just how difficult it is. Apart from the hardware specifications and capabilities of the Series X and S, the design of the consoles has attracted a lot of attention. Microsoft shared their inspiration for the design of the next-gen consoles in a blog post today. Read on to find out how the team put together Series S and X, keeping their faithful fanbase...
    We know how the 1990s Console Wars between Sega and Nintendo ended: Sega lost. But CBS All Access’ lively gaming documentary Console Wars has enough of an emotional payoff that it could still be spoiled. Without revealing exactly how it ends, it winds up the way you’d want it to if the film was about your favorite workplace, with your best friends talking about the great old days. The youngest kids who played the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo are now in their 30s, and they’ve all probably had at least one job like that. That’s why Console Wars should resonate with so many people. You don’t have to have made, marketed, or even played a video game between...

    Sony issued an apology on Twitter for PlayStation 5 pre-orders turning into a disaster. The Japanese company announced pricing and release dates for the gaming system Wednesday and minutes after the event, nearly every major retailer was 'out of stock.' Retailers including Amazon, GameStop and Walmart jumped the gun with opening pre-orders a day early that started a buying frenzy in the gaming community.  Gamers around the world ran to their computers, smartphones and tablets to reserve a console, but many were met with broken links, page time outs and the dreaded 'out of stock' message. Sony shared in the tweet that it is set to release more consoles over the next few days and promises 'more PS5s will be...
    SONY have revealed that more PlayStation 5 pre-orders will go live within days and apologised for a chaotic launch last week that left thousands of gamers unable to get hold of the new console. In a tweet over the weekend, the Japanese tech titan admitted the first round of pre-orders "could have been a lot smoother" and assured fans that more PS5s would be available through to 2021. 4Sony has apologised for last week's chaotic PS5 launchCredit: Twitter The console isn't out until November, but Sony opened pre-orders with little warning last Thursday, sparking a mad scramble for minimal stock.

    From the attractive configuration of the PlayStation 3, there is always the concern that Sony will not be able to build a console. When it came to PlayStation 4, computer architect Mark Cherni took the issue directly, as most studios have suggested.

    Both Sony and Microsoft revealed the prices and the launch date of their respective next-gen consoles. The PS5 is slated to hit the markets on November 12th for the US starting at $399. It will be released for the entire world just a week after. On the other hand, the new Xbox range will begin at $299 and will be launched on November 10th. This has officially flagged off the start of the console war. Both consoles differ from each other in terms of style and even hardware. The prices are yet another factor. At face value, it is easier to assume that Microsoft might be able to create a niche with the Xbox Series S with its aggressive pricing,...
    Sony’s PlayStation 4 had the perfect foil in the Xbox One. In 2013, Microsoft came out with a confused, entertainment-centric pitch: The new Xbox would be the all-in-one entertainment hub of your living room, delivering live television, apps, NFL football, and video games to early console adopters. In every box, Microsoft packed a Kinect motion controller, the gadget that brought the Xbox to Ellen and Oprah. Steven Spielberg was going to make a Halo TV series for Microsoft, which … maybe you could watch on your new Xbox? The PlayStation 4, on the other hand, would play video games. And, in the early days of the new generation, the PS4 would play games better and more cheaply than Microsoft’s new...
    Nintendo 3DS is a handheld gaming console developed by Nintendo. It was the successor to one of the most popular Nintendo consoles, i.e. the Nintendo DS. It has been 10 years since the Nintendo 3DS was announced and released. The official  Japanese site for Nintendo announced that the consoles, including the 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, and 2DS XL, would no longer be produced. The hardware is no longer listed on the official US page either. The 3DS page now redirects to the home page of the website.

    I tell this story a lot: I didn’t have much of a life before the Nintendo 3DS. It happened a year after I moved to New York. Aside from my housemates and a couple of over-friendly acquaintances, I didn’t know a lot of people, and certainly none who’d play video games with me. It was a sunny fall day in 2014 when Nintendo released its free demo for Super Smash Bros. 4 on the handheld 3DS system. The competitive fighting game’s launch, a month from then, was slated to be my highlight of the year. I’d celebrated every Smash launch before it. Unconscionable snack foods, hours of screaming in basements packed with friends and friends-of-friends left back in prior...
    The PlayStation 5 will be Sony’s largest console ever, according to official system specifications released on Thursday, confirming speculation from fans that the next-gen PlayStation will be just absolutely massive.

    Sony’s PlayStation 5 will launch on November 12th in the US starting at $399.99. That price will get you the digital edition of the console that doesn’t have a Blu-ray disc drive. If you want a disc drive for playing disc-based PS5 games, 4K Blu-ray movies, and PS4 games that may end up being compatible, there’s a larger version of the console that has that for $499. Preorders are now available, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be able to find one. The stock that was available at retailers like Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Sam’s Club, and Walmart came and went incredibly fast. It’s been a whole fiasco.

    Sony announced pricing and release dates for its PlayStation 5 Wednesday and retailers opened pre-orders of the console one day earlier than expected – creating a buying frenzy among the gaming community. Gamers around the world ran to their computers, smartphones and tablets to reserve a console, but many were met with broken links, page time outs and the dreaded ‘out of stock’ message.

    I’m generally a person who appreciates physical media. I collect vinyl records, buy print books, and like to watch 4K Blu-ray movies. But for a variety of reasons, I switched entirely to buying digital games on each platform as soon as the option became available. Now that Sony and Microsoft have revealed their next-generation consoles in full, a lot more people may well choose to do the same. To recap, yesterday Sony announced the pricing for its upcoming PlayStation 5 — both the regular model and the disc-less Digital Edition. The standard PS5 is $499.99 and the otherwise identical Digital Edition is $399.99, saving you a full $100 if you swear off physical games for good. Microsoft, meanwhile, has gone...

    Sony has finally announced the price for PlayStation 5, and it was perhaps the best bit of a brilliant showcase. With the PS5 disk edition priced at $499 and the digital edition priced at $399, Sony may well have already won the war of next-gen consoles. Microsoft had revealed the price for Xbox Series X and Series S a week ago to be $499 and $299, respectively. The real game-changer is possibly the price of the digital version of PS5. Although the Xbox Series S is priced at a lowly $299, it is a far inferior machine compared to the Series X and PS5. It is likely gamers wouldn’t mind shelling out an extra $100 to get their hands...

    When internet detectives revealed the PlayStation 5 was going to be huge, we were extremely amused — but even their fancy Photoshops couldn’t completely prepare us for how enormous the PS5 truly is. Roughly half an hour after Sony finally revealed the next-gen console’s price and release date ($399 or $499, November 12th) the company released a full spec sheet that includes the console’s dimensions. And it’s a monster. Quick, what’s the biggest console ever made? Did you say the original 2001 Xbox, or the VCR-sized original Xbox One? Perhaps the 60GB PS3, affectionately dubbed the “Phat”? Wrong. The PS5 is bigger than all of them. According to Sony, the PS5 is approximately 390mm (15.4 inches) tall, 260mm...

    The Xbox Series S might have leaked earlier this week before being officially unveiled, but Microsoft was hiding it in plain sight months ago. Xbox chief Phil Spencer appeared in multiple interviews in July, ahead of Microsoft’s Xbox games showcase, and he hid an Xbox Series S on the shelves behind him. The official Xbox account revealed the elaborate prank today, and Spencer added that the Xbox Series S appeared in at least three YouTube video interviews during July. While it might sound surprising for an unannounced console to be hidden in videos, Microsoft has a habit of hiding secrets and codes as teasers ahead of its console announcements. Microsoft teased its Xbox One X console with a bunch of...

    Microsoft’s shockingly low price for its upcoming Xbox Series S surprised more than just video game fans — it also stunned chief rival Sony. The Japanese gaming giant is under pressure to slash the MSRP of its upcoming PlayStation 5, which European blog Gamereactor reports was “considerably” higher than the prices Microsoft announced for its two new consoles. The console makers have for months been locked in a staredown over who would release pricing details for their next generation Xbox and PlayStation consoles first.

    As far as console reveals/announcements are concerned, the Xbox Series S announcement was the most underwhelming, by a margin. Multiple leaks and rumors forced Microsoft to make the announcement, as there was literally no further information that could’ve been leaked. But instead of actually helping in building the hype around the Series S, the leaks killed the hype and turned it into a rather mediocre announcement. Usually, the hype around any console announcement is absolutely unreal. Days and days of speculation clubbed with the official sources building up the anticipation is usually how it goes. Microsoft may have planned something similar for the Series S, but things definitely didn’t go according to plan. Surprisingly, the latest leak was not the...

The pure gold PS5 can be reserved on September 10, with prices starting at 8,840 euros … This is not an official version, but a customization by...
    The main downgrade on the tiny new console is the SSD. The Series S has just 512GB of storage, compared with 1TB for the Series X (and 825GB for the PlayStation 5). The Series X will have a custom port that allows for storage expansions and it’s possible the Series S will have this functionality as well, though Microsoft has not confirmed that just yet. Rumors about an all-digital next-gen Xbox have been swirling for ages, as Microsoft has focused on expanding its online services, encouraging cross-console play, and building out Game Pass, which this year crested 10 million subscribers. Its most inclusive tier, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, costs $15 per month, and includes Xbox Live Gold and instant access...

    The Intellivision Amico will miss its October 2020 release window (via Polygon). Intellivision CEO Tommy Tallarico announced the delay during a livestream the company hosted on Wednesday to show off gameplay footage of games coming to the console. As you might have guessed, the delay is due to various challenges caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “The impact on our company has been dramatic,” he said. “The reality is that every single aspect of this process has been affected.”  Tallarico went on to say shipping the Amico in October would have forced Intellivision to compromise on quality and specific features. The company now plans to release a Founder’s Edition of the console to early backers on April 3rd, 2021, with general retail...
    The file sizes of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” updates this year have been so ridiculous they’ve become a running online joke. With every update, console users are having to make tough choices about what to delete to clear space. This week’s Season 5 download won’t be an exception to that trend. It’s a good thing, then, that “Warzone” has been such a hit game mode for fans of the “Call of Duty” franchise. If it wasn’t so addictive, it would be hard to justify the file requirements. Here’s what to know about the Season 5 update file size for “Warzone” as well as ways to minimize the headache of the download: When is ‘Warzone’ Season 5 getting released?

    If you read News Brig often, you’ll know that we’re big fans of Alto’s Adventure and Alto’s Odyssey. The relaxing games — which are predominantly about snowboarding, though the second title features sandboarding too — were instant hits on mobile thanks to their beautiful art style and simple one-touch control scheme. Now, Team Alto is preparing to launch both as The Alto Collection on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and the Epic Games Store. Alto’s Adventure was released on Windows 10 in July 2016. But Alto’s Odyssey has never been available on PC, and it’s been impossible to play either title on consoles until now. The dual-game pack will hit the Epic Games Store, Xbox One and PlayStation 4...

    Sony’s next-generation console, the PlayStation 5, will launch sometime this holiday. While we still don’t have an official release date or price for the new console, Sony and third-party game publishers have confirmed a long list of games coming to PS5 this year and beyond. Many familiar PlayStation franchises will continue on PlayStation 5, including Ratchet & Clank, Gran Turismo, and Horizon. And many current-generation games coming to PlayStation 4 (and other platforms) will be available on PS5, with developers like CD Projekt Red and Ubisoft releasing free updates to PS4 games to take advantage of the more powerful PS5. There are still many unknowns when it comes to PS5 games, particularly around how games released on PS4 will carry...
    The gap between the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 for cross-platform titles will likely be real, though it’s not going to be as severe as the XB1X/PS4 Pro divide. Despite this, though, during the all-important launch window, it’s likely that we’ll see PlayStation 5 exclusive titles that simply look better than Xbox Series X exclusive titles. You can see this in Halo Infinite, which looks like a 4K remaster of a Xbox One launch game. Now, some of that comes down to art direction and wanting to produce a game that recalls the Halo series’ legacy. There are also promises that it’ll “get better,” but the game looks like an upscaled Xbox One game because it is, in...
    Microsoft’s next-generation console, the Xbox Series X, will launch sometime this holiday season. Unlike the PlayStation 5, which has several exclusive titles, Microsoft will be taking much less of a hard-line approach to the generational switch-over. For example, Microsoft’s tentpole title Halo Infinite will be released on both the Xbox One and the Xbox Series X. Thanks to Microsoft’s new “Smart Delivery” system, if you buy Halo Infinite on the Xbox One, you don’t need to rebuy it on the Series X — you’ll already have it. Ownership of games with Smart Delivery will be tied to your Microsoft account, and will apply across platforms. Backward compatibility matters a lot to the Microsoft team, and now apparently so does...
    Microsoft has a lot of exciting things coming our way apart for the Xbox Series X. The company’s vision for the future of gaming is headed in a completely different direction than Sony. Xbox chief Phil Spencer also mentioned that the Series X was no longer the star of Xbox’s strategy. This proves that the company is not limiting its resources to its console but also betting big on other stuff. Yes, we’re talking about Project xCloud. Over the last few days, we have talked about how Microsoft’s xCloud is the next big thing. This could also be the reason the company decided to stop producing Xbox One console. One this is clear, the company has now changed its focus...
    With the launch of the Xbox Series X this holiday — Microsoft’s fourth major console launch over two decades — Xbox head Phil Spencer and his team are taking a very different approach to ushering in a new generation of game devices. Unlike the more traditional hard breaks between previous Xbox generations, where customers bought a new console and a rash of new games to play on it, Microsoft’s next generational jump will be soft. There’s the promise of backward compatibility with three previous Xbox consoles, a hundred-plus titles playable on day one to Xbox Game Pass subscribers, and the option to play Xbox games old and new from the cloud on phones and tablets. Even the games coming to...

    Last week, 2K Sports announced that it would raise the price of NBA 2K21 by $10 — from $59.99 to $69.99 — for next-generation video game consoles.

    “It just reinforces this idea that you can always tell who’s trans and who’s not, and that trans women will always be that slightly bit masculine,” Dr. Colliver said. “It has all of these stereotypes. They talk to real-life problems, but they don’t do it in a way that tackles problems. They do it in a way that just reinforces that trans people are somehow less than everyone else.” One scene that stands out in Dr. Colliver’s research is the Psycho storyline from 2002’s Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The Psycho is the name of a male character who attempts to assassinate the members of a popular rock band, Love Fist, by dressing as a woman and bringing a pistol...

    Microsoft and Sony will launch the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 later this year. While their hardware improvements are hard to argue with, they’re arriving in an unprecedented era of media consumption: Netflix on iPhones, Kindle on tablets, Spotify on PC, all three interchangeable on each piece of hardware. As videogames follow that same path, the primacy of the specced out console itself seems increasingly in doubt. After all, tweens who play Fortnite already know that everything can be a console. It’s a vision Xbox itself is championing. Yet at the dawn of a new era of consoles, it’s hard not to wonder whether these mega-powerful boxes we plant in our living rooms will even exist in 10 years....
