When it comes to Microsoft’s game consoles, all that everyone wants to talk about at this point is the Xbox Series X. This is the company’s next-generation gaming console that will doing battle with Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5. But what about the current family of Xbox One consoles? Well, Microsoft has confirmed that two of its three currently-produced consoles are being discontinued as it ramps production of the Xbox Series X. In this case, the high-end Xbox One X and the entry-level Xbox One S All-Digital Edition are getting the boot. The $399 Xbox One X was released on November 7th 2017, and is [currently] the most powerful gaming console on... Read more...
You know what they say about beauty—it is in the eye of the beholder. And depending on your eye, the Cyberpunk 2077 themed Xbox One X console either looks delightfully tough and tumble, or is a weathered mess. There is probably not a whole lot of middle ground, but either way, you can form your own opinion by spying a bunch of actual photos (read: not renders) of the Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 Edition game console. These are challenging times we find ourselves in, and had the situation been different, CD Projekt Red would have held a Night City Wire event this week. However, the developer/publisher decided to push it back until later this month. In the meantime, pictures of the themed console... Read more...
Earlier this year, NVIDIA gave away a limited number of Cyberpunk 2077 versions of its flagship GeForce RTX 2080 Ti consumer graphics card to enthusiasts. Shockingly, these cards ended up being sold on eBay for as much as $5,000. Talk about a major “payday” for those sellers! Now there's even more Cyberpunk 2077-themed products coming to market, including the Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Bundle. This is no doubt one of the coolest editions of the Xbox One X that we've seen to date, as it features laser etching, blue LED's and a custom controller. On top of that, the console itself actually glows in the dark. Sure, it might be a bit over the top, but we... Read more...
Kids these days are enamored with LeBron James, but he's not the greatest ever—sorry, not sorry. If you want to debate the G.O.A.T. in basketball, I'll accept several other candidates, including Bill Russell, Larry Bird, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, and of course his Airness, Michael Jordan. Microsoft and Nike chose the latter to don a custom themed Xbox One X game console, and it is up for grabs. The themed console is part of a giveaway on Twitter. Entering is simple—all you have to do follow @xbox (so you can be notified via DM if you win) and retweet the designated Twitter post with the hashtag #Xboxsweepstakes. There are no other hoops to jump through, just a simple retweet puts you... Read more...

Last summer, Microsoft initially launched its Xbox All Access financing program for Xbox One purchases. Instead of paying the full upfront costs for an Xbox One S or Xbox One X console, those payments could be financed monthly over a 24-month period with Xbox All Access. Now that the holiday season is starting to ramp up again, Microsoft is burning back Xbox All Access. Like before, the bundle includes the Xbox One hardware along with a 24-month membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The base bundle with an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition costs $19.99/month, while stepping up to the Xbox One S will set you back $22.99/month. If you want a flagship Xbox One X, that cost balloons to $30.99... Read more...
Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has been highly anticipated as a gritty reboot of the combat series that is dripping with gorgeous graphical effects (especially on the PC side with ray tracing enabled). However, last night's official launch of the game was not without problems. Besides the usual servers crashes that gamers should expect with thousands of players trying to hop online all at once, Xbox One X gamers have been especially plagued with issues. There is currently a reddit thread devoted to incessant crashing on the Xbox One X console. The thread currently has over 2,000 comments and over 27,000 upvotes as Xbox One X gamers are expressing their frustrations... Read more...

Gamers who have been holing out for prices on the Xbox One X to go down before they jump into 4K gaming might want to take advantage now. Newegg has the Xbox One X bundle that includes a single controller and a copy of the maligned Fallout 76 game for $349.99, which is a $150 discount off the normal $499 price. That makes this Newegg deal significantly better than the best price we saw during Black Friday at Walmart for $399. The only caveat is you have to be able to live with paying Bethesda some loot for the stinker of a game that is Fallout 76. Bethesda is still working on the game, but so far no significant improvements have been seen. Bethesda has promised better communication with fans... Read more...

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...

First up is Amazon, which is offering $80 off the NBA 2K19 Xbox One S and Xbox One X console bundles. The reason why Amazon is only offering $80 off on these two particular bundles is because they've already been discounted... Read more...
If you've had your eyes on the Xbox One X game console, but weren't exactly sold in its stark black color, Microsoft is looking to lighten the mood with a new release. The company today announced a new Xbox One X console available in Robot White. This latest Xbox One X bundle includes a free downloadable copy of Fallout 76 and retains the same $499 price tag as the original Xbox One X.

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...
If your game console is feeling a bit old and you have your eyes on a new Xbox One X, this might be the best time ever to take that old console hardware down to your local GameStop and trade it in. GameStop has a deal going right now that could see you walking away with an Xbox One X for a scant $200. The Xbox One X normally retails for $499.99 and to get the maximum $300 discount you will need to trade in your PS4 Pro. That would be a hard deal to take for most gamers, as the PS4 Pro normally sells for $399.99. If you have serious buyer's remorse over the PS4 Pro this is the best way for you to get the bulk of your money back we've seen so far. You do have to trade the PS4 Pro in towards an... Read more...
Microsoft revealed this morning that it will be announcing "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories" and "perhaps a few surprises" at this year's Gamescom, which is being held in Cologne, Germany. Microsoft will be making its big reveal during the Inside Xbox Show that will be broadcast live from Gamescom 2018 August 21st at 10:30am EST. Even though the current generation Xbox One was initially released in late 2013 and saw subsequent updates with the Xbox One S and Xbox One X in 2016 and 2017 respectively, we aren't likely to see next-generation Xbox hardware at the event. In fact, we're quite certain that this won't be the case.  Microsoft did, however, confirm that it will have new... Read more...
