Microsoft dropped some big news during the season premiere of its 'Xbox Inside' show, which it streamed online over the weekend. Towards the end of the show, Larry Hryb (Major Nelson), programming director for Xbox Live, announced that Microsoft was bringing FreeSync support to Xbox One S and Xbox One X game consoles, which will ultimately deliver smooth visuals to gamers. FreeSync is similar to NVIDIA's G-Sync technology, in that it helps reduce or eliminate screen tearing, stuttering, and artifacting that is often observed even on the highest end systems. It does this by synchronizing the refresh... Read more...
Much of the hype surrounding the Xbox One X is that it supports 4K resolution gaming, assuming you own a compatible display and are trying to play a game that supports that resolution. Even without a 4K display, Microsoft's user of supersampling meant that even gamers playing on a 1080p TV or monitor would benefit as well. Good stuff, but what about 1440p? Hang tight, because support for 1440p is coming soon to both the Xbox One X and Xbox One S.

Many of the juiciest deals on Black Friday are often deeply discounted technology products, making Best Buy a seemingly obviously destination for anyone trying to score a deal. But will the electronics chain live up to expectations? It very well may—Best Buy's Black Friday advertisement lists some enticing deals, including $300 off any of Samsung's flagship Galaxy phones, those being the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8.

The Fall Creators Update will be available for Windows 10 users starting tomorrow, but if you have an Xbox One console, the fun starts today. Microsoft announced that the Fall Update is now rolling out to the Xbox One and Xbox One S -- it will also presumably be preinstalled on the upcoming Xbox One X. Thanks to the feedback provided by Xbox Insiders, Microsoft has a wealth of new functionality, performance, and usability improvements that are packed in to the Fall Update.

We are an impatient society; we need everything "right now", the faster the better. Microsoft is looking to fuel this need for urgency with a new method for installing and streaming games on the Xbox One called "Intelligent Delivery". Intelligent Delivery strips a game's assets down to data chunks that are individually tagged. There could be tags for 4K assets in a game or for each local language that is supported. So, if you live in the United States and play a game that is enjoyed by a world audience, like FIFA 2018, you would only need to download the English audio tracks instead of countless... Read more...
The American DJ and production duo known as The Chainsmokers have officially arrived, ladies and gentlemen. Not that Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall were not already successful and a well-known team, but when Microsoft takes notice and designs a custom themed Xbox One S just for you, nobody should be able to question your status after that point. And so it goes with The Chainsmokers—this DJ duo kicks off a new effort by Microsoft to create custom, one-of-a-kind Xbox One S consoles for celebrities and brands. "We were really pumped to work with Xbox on this project and help bring our music to life... Read more...

There are no shortage of bundles for you to choose from on the One S side of things, but sadly, not all the cool bundles are discounted. For instance if you... Read more...
One of the things that have set PC and console gamers apart from each other since the console first landed on the scene, is the platform input and control method. PC gamers typically play with a mouse and a keyboard, while the console gamer plays with a gamepad. Sure gamepads will work with Windows PCs, but it's hard to find a PC gamer willing to give up the accuracy and speed of their mouse and keyboard for a gamepad, for most genres of games. Many console gamers want to be able to use a mouse and keyboard with their Xbox One consoles and that has been impossible, but things appear to be changing.... Read more...
