Xbox One X Review [UPDATE]

Xbox One X Review [UPDATE]

Microsoft is winning the media war with Sony here in late 2017. Just as the holiday season rolls up here in 2017, it almost feels as though Microsoft's Xbox is the only competitor in their class. The PlayStation 4 Pro is already on the market, but it's already old hat, having been released all the way back in November of 2016. As should be apparent, we're no longer dealing with the gaming market as it existed in 2001.

Super Nt: SNES games just got a lot more valuable

Super Nt: SNES games just got a lot more valuable

A new console was revealed by Analogue this week called the Super Nt, a console which plays original Super Nintendo cartridges. This is not an emulator console, and it's not a "plug n' play toy", as they call it - instead, it's the most impressive recreation (and upgrade) of the SNES and Super Famicom game console ever made.

Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition just sold out

This weekend Microsoft revealed the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, and it's just sold out. This device was announced to come with a custom designed casing with "Project Scorpio" printed on its side - and that's about it.

Xbox One X Scorpio Edition pre-orders start, Xbox One S editions galore

It’s finally out, or rather, the pre-orders are out. It may no longer be formally called “Project Scorpio” but Microsoft is paying homage to the codename that was carried all throughout the Xbox One X’s development phase. Called the Xbox One X Scorpio Edition, this super limited collector’s edition of Microsoft’s newest console has already started its pre-order period. But better hurry because the extremely limited supplies will most likely run out quickly. That is, if it hasn’t yet already.

Xbox “Project Scorpio” has 4K all over it, internal PSU

Xbox “Project Scorpio” has 4K all over it, internal PSU

Goodbye power bricks! At least as far as the Xbox consoles are concerned. Or at least that is probably the trend that Microsoft is trying to set. The Xbox One S, though slimmer than its predecessor, managed to still squeeze in its power supply inside, doing away with the external, bulky PSUs of old. And, according to sources, that will be true with the still to be formally named “Project Scorpio” console as well. And hopefully for its future consoles, too.

PlayBook 4 S delivers your PS4 Slim laptop fix

PlayBook 4 S delivers your PS4 Slim laptop fix

Hardcore console fans, whether they come from the Xbox camp or the PlayStation side, will most likely be familiar with EdsJunk, a.k.a. Edward Zarick. Almost every console generation from Microsoft and Sony has gone under his knife and come out a different console. Specifically a "console-book", the ungodly, but much desired, offspring of a gaming console stuffed inside a laptop-like portable form factor. While Edward already gave the PS4 that treatment, the slightly new PS4 Slim was only begging to be similarly hacked. And so the PlayBook 4 S was born.
