If you're looking for a dirt-cheap gaming console for yourself, a family member, or maybe a recent graduate, Newegg is running a fantastic deal on the Xbox One S. Via Newegg's eBay Store, the Xbox One S is currently priced at a reasonable $199. However, if you add the console to your cart and go through the checkout process, the price drops by another $29.85 bringing the total price to a red hot $169.15 (before any applicable sales tax, depending on your state). That's near Black Friday level pricing for the Xbox One S, but it actually gets even better. For select eBay accounts, eBay's equally hot eBay Bucks promotional period is ending today that gives you 8 percent back if you purchase... Read more...
With the Xbox One platform getting rather long in the tooth and gamers looking forward to the next generation of consoles, the next best thing that Microsoft can do is crank out special models to spark interest. Earlier this month, Microsoft launched the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition which dropped the Blu-ray drive and knocked $50 off the $299 MSRP of the standard console. Now we're learning that Microsoft has a new Fortnite-themed Xbox One S console that will soon be arriving in stores. Microsoft has traditionally reserved its special colors and graphics for its pricier Xbox One X, so it's nice to see that Microsoft is paying some attention to those that want a cheaper system. In this case,... Read more...
If you're looking for a hot deal on an Xbox One S console, we've got two options available for you today. Both Walmart and Amazon are selling the Xbox One S 1TB console for a low $208, which is a steep discount from the MSRP of $299 (and the typical sale price of $250). This particular version of the console doesn't come with any bundled games, and includes a single wireless controller. In other words, it's just a barebones entry into the Microsoft-ecosystem when it comes to console gaming. What you do get is a gaming console that can play back 4K content and includes a built-in Blu-ray drive for those time when you want the utmost image fidelity compared to the compressed streams that you'll...

The big news in the Xbox world over the last couple of months has been the pending arrival of the new disc-free Xbox One S game console. The game console is aimed at digitally downloaded games and game streaming. Microsoft's new disc-free console has been previously tipped to launch on May 7 globally. As the software giant gears up to launch its least expensive Xbox console ever, it is also gearing up to launch a new Game Pass Ultimate service, according to rumors, that would combine Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass for streaming games at a discounted price of $14.99 monthly. Alleged hardware specifications and pricing details on the disc-free Xbox One S All Digital have leaked now as well.... Read more...
Earlier this month, we first received word that Microsoft is working on a cheaper, disc-less version of the Xbox One S. Not only would this console allow Microsoft to hit a lower price point, making it a more attractive entry for gamers looking for a hot deal, but it also acknowledges the strength and appeal of digital-only game distribution. Today, we’re hearing that the launch of the Xbox One S All-Digital is set for May 7th, which lines up with our previous reporting. According to Windows Central, this will be a simultaneous global launch, although the console is expected to be first unveiled in mid-April at Inside Xbox. The Xbox One S All-Digital is said to look much like... Read more...
Given the prevalence of high-speed internet in the United States and the disdain that many gamers have for swapping out Blu-ray game discs, it’s likely that the optical drive on your console might not get much use. The same could be said for movie watching, with many people opting for streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Hulu versus accumulating stacks of Blu-ray discs. Microsoft has apparently gotten the hint, which is why it has been developing a new Xbox One S variant under the codename Xbox Maverick. According to a new report from Windows Central, the official retail name for the console will be Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. The console will completely ditch... Read more...
Last summer, Microsoft launched Xbox All Access which included the an Xbox One console, access to over 100 games via Xbox Games Pass, and multiple years of Xbox Live Gold. Xbox All Access gave gamers all of those perks for one monthly price over the course of 24 months. This week, however, Microsoft announced that it is ending the Xbox All Access program on December 31st. Gamers on the fence about taking advantage of the deal have until the end of the year to make up their minds. Larry Hryb tweeted that an expanded program would be launching in 2019. That tidbit might make some people hold off out of fear that the expanded 2019 program might be better than what Microsoft is currently... Read more...

Confirming rumors that broke last week, Microsoft today announced Xbox All Access before unceremoniously deactivating the link to the page describing the service. However, the details surrounding Xbox All Access match exactly with what we reported on Thursday. Customers in the United States will be able to get an Xbox One S console, Xbox Live Gold, and Xbox Game Pass at a cost of $22 per month for 24 months. If you want the more powerful Xbox One X console, your monthly cost will rise to $35 per month. If we take into consideration retail pricing for both the console and the two services, you're looking at about a $130 savings over the course of two years if you opt for the Xbox... Read more...

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 rate of your monitor with your GPU to smooth things out. FreeSync (like G-Sync) is something that... 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. Image Source: Flickr via Marco Verch Kevin Gammill, the program manager for Microsoft's Xbox Platform Partner Group, let the cat out of the bag on Twitter. He said there have been numerous questions surrounding 1440p support, and that Xbox Insiders who... Read more...
