Let’s face it, if we could play games with our friends regardless of the console we own then this would be a dream come true. Whilst there is usually always one clear winner in the console war it could never be considered a bad thing opening up cross play on console, at least from a customer point of view. Some of us may have even had a taste of this cross play between PS4 and Xbox One; something many of us believed would never happen! Too bad this was short lived but begs the question, will cross play across all consoles ever exist? Continue reading “Will Console Cross Play Ever Happen?”
Having been an Xbox owner for many years, I am willing Microsoft to do well with their Xbox One X launch. The console was the focal point of Microsoft’s conference during Gamescom 2017 and it may have felt underwhelming to me in many ways, it appears that Microsoft are doing something right as the console is generating some buzz in the gaming community.

Having never been a huge fan of the Crackdown series, it may surprise to see my writing about a delay for Crackdown 3. Well, my reasons are twofold.

Whilst Microsoft have been lauding the benefits of their new Xbox One X, I have been sitting back trying to formulate my opinion of the console. Most people who watched their E3 conference will have said it was disappointing despite more games being shown than ever before. Something just doesn’t quite sit right about this new console and that is coming from someone who was very much in the Xbox camp in the previous console generation. Will Microsoft be able to convince millions to come back to Xbox? Continue reading “Can the Xbox One X Thrive In The Console Market?”
Before E3, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was not even a concept to me. Following it’s inclusion at E3 I suddenly took notice and decided to do some research of this game. I came to realise this Battle Royale game could be one of the smarter moves from Xbox to make this a console launch exclusive. With a release expected around September when the game was planned to leave early access I was excited but it looks like I must wait a little longer.
