Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg is happy with what they have achieved with Xbox One X. And the same team that created the “most powerful console” is now working on Xbox Scarlett.

Things will work differently with Xbox Scarlett, according to Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg during his interview with Xbox Magazine. I think for a lot of gamers, they want a really powerful console. They want a high-end system that delivers the best performance available. We feel really good about what we’ve done with the Xbox One X, and the same team that built that is off building Project Scarlett. What Microsoft did with Xbox One X’s is push 6 teraflops (TFLOPS), 40 customized compute units @ 1,172MHz. But the console’s 2.3GHz x86 AMD…

What is the PS5 release date? December 4, 2020, according to a new listing. The listing is up in Slovakia, a Central European country. A retailer named Progamingshop has put up the console which an expected price of €499.99. There is no way to pre-order the console yet but interested parties can add to the wishlist and get email notifications. It is to be noted that this retailer has posted a fan-made render up and the specs shared are pretty much what Mark Cerny revealed already so nothing new. Retailers often end up leaking release dates and information early but we must always take such information with major grain of salt. But the leaked release date is in line with Sony’s announcement of a Holiday 2020 launch. The release date could just be a place holder and indeed is likely the case. As far as a confirmed release date goes,…

Death Stranding is releasing is about a month and the review embargo is going to be lifted on November 1st but publications have already started receiving review copies. This is supposed to be a pretty long game so it does make sense that the review copies are being sent out well before the release date. It also means that spoilers are already on the internet. Multiple sites like vandal and meups4 have confirmed that they have got the review copies of Death Stranding and that they are playing the game. While most of the people that get these copies are professional and will honor the NDA, it is inevitable that bits and details are leaked and parts of the game make their way to the internet. It is not surprising keeping in mind how much Kojima has tried to keep the game a mystery so fans are going to try…

The AMD Athlon 300GE has been spotted yet again and it seems that retailers will be selling the CPU in pre-built PCs.  This CPU was spotted in a build from Lenovo and the specifications of the processor are similar to that of the Pro model. The CPU does 3.4 GHz which is similar to the previous generation model and while we were hoping that this generation would have better graphics, the processor features Vega 3 graphics. The AMD Athlon 300GE comes with 2 cores and 4 threads, so this is a basic entry-level CPU. You can check out the specifications of the Lenovo PC that is powered by the AMD Athlon 300GE below: The CPU is going to stick to PCIe 3.0 which makes sense as this is a cheaper processor. It also supports dual-channel memory up to 2666 MHz. The speed is not very high for DDR4 memory but…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is coming to PC but if you are interested in playing the game as the developer intended you to then you are going to need some serious hardware as the requirements of the game are pretty high. It seems that this is going to be a demanding title that is going to need a lot of resources. On the graphics side, the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PC requirements recommend that you have an RX Vega 56 or Equivalent or a GTX 1070 or Equivalent. Most games that came out this year recommended up to at GTX 1060 so this is going to be a more demanding title and we can expect it to be graphics-intensive, to say the least. 16 GB of RAM is recommended to run the game and it will be interesting to see what kind of hardware it takes to run…

Fortnite is in a state of blackout right now and Ninja took to twitter and said that he would share a hint regarding what is going to happen next in Fortnite if his Tweet got 200 likes.
