Xbox Aims To Be Number One

It’s been an eventful past week or so at Xbox. So, where do we begin? Well, let’s start with the fact that it’s obvious that Microsoft want Xbox to be the number one platform for cloud.

Microsoft is in the news today about more layoffs. It’s an unfortunate circumstance for everyone involved.

Recreating Old PlayStation Magic

Isn’t it interesting how we are this far into this generation, and I still feel like the PS4 had it best when it came to just how communicative everything was? As many of you do because you haven’t even bothered upgrading to PS5. There has to be something in that, right? I loved everything about that generation (PS4). Not that we’re not getting good things from this generation, but it’s been, I’d say, slightly muted in comparison to the direction of that generation from higher ups. Read More

Xbox turned up and put on a show for its fans. Signifying that maybe it isn’t quite as dead and buried as everyone thought. Obviously, there is some context we need to add to that.

Sony’s Playing Catch Up

With its joint CEO’s now leading PlayStation. It’s clear that those coming in think that PlayStation couldn’t be in a better position.

The Next Season of Yellowstone

Like a lot of you who know and love Yellowstone. It’s been a wild ride. I watched all the episodes, and just like you, I’ve been wondering when the next ones are going to drop as well. Especially how ultimately the show will set up without one of the leads going forward. Read More

It’s All Change at PlayStation

We know a showcase is coming. But do you also know what’s coming? A completely new approach that will focus on narratives. Something that Sony has been having home-runs on and that, as a company, they’ve enjoyed a lot of success with. A lot of people know that the gaming industry is changing as sustainability comes into focus on the costs of games. So effectively, PlayStation’s marque narrative with less of a graphical grab is on the way. So we’re all expecting less graphical powerhouse games but ones that still push the medium forward in terms of storytelling. Read More

Why The Next Xbox is DOA to Most Fans

Especially for people who normally buy PlayStation and Xbox. If you can play Xbox would-be exclusives, on PlayStation. Many will choose to play everything on one console. That being PlayStation. It’s not rocket science. Read More
