There’s a lot of things to look for when you’re getting a TV for gaming. It is 4K? Does it support 120HZ? And, if so, does it have an HDMI 2.1 port? What about audio? Does it support Dolby Atmos? 

It can be overwhelming trying to figure out what’s the best setup for your gaming experience, but in this video we narrow

Next month sees the release of two brand-new Xbox consoles, and retailers are already sold out of preorders for both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The Series X and Series S release November 10 for $500 and $300, respectively, and as of now, it’s proving to be quite challenging to secure either.

Where to preorder the Xbox Series X and Series S

Xbox Series X and Series S preorders were sold out at all major retailers as of our last update. Xbox preorder listings went live at Target, Walmart, Microsoft, GameStop, and other stores on September 22 but sold out as fast as they appeared. You can check the main store listings below in case of availability. In a recent tweet, Xbox urged its followers to sign up with retailers for stock updates and said more consoles will be available on release day.

Part of the marketing and hype lead-up to any tech launch, now, is a bespoke Twitter hashtag emoji. And now, ahead of its November 10 launch, Xbox Series X has its own.

Microsoft has chosen a Series X over the cuter Series S for its emoji series, and the image will now be attached to several Twitter hashtags. In a Twitter thread, Xbox announced the following hashtags will carry an image of the powerful rectangular console:

  • #XboxSeriesX
  • #Xbox
  • #SeriesX
  • #PowerYourDreams
  • #PYD
  • #JumpIn

Of course, in emoji form, the Series X is a tiny little thing–in real life, it’s quite large.

The PlayStation 5 has its own Twitter emoji too, and has for a while–it’s a little DualSense controller.

The Xbox Series X and Series S release worldwide on November 10–less than a month away. Here’s every launch title coming to the new Xbox, and GameSpot’s preorder guide for

Yesterday morning, I woke up to videos of Assassin’s Creed: Unity. I have to be honest, I haven’t thought much about that game in a few years: the Ps4/Xbox One launch title was pretty and ambitious, but also loaded with bugs, bloated with features and ultimately a major black eye for what was then a yearly franchise. It’s been largely forgotten as the series reinvented itself with Origins, which is why I was surprised to see this Digital Foundry video running the game at a smooth 60 FPS, many of those launch bugs long-since patched. And I’m going to be honest: I kind of want to play it.

And while I’m a whole lot less likely to play Blinx The Timesweeper, a 2002 title for the original Xbox, I can’t say that my interest wasn’t piqued by Geoff Keighley booting the thing

It’s shaping up to be an even busier fall then usual, with both Amazon Prime Day 2020 and the launch of the Xbox Series X and S happening within a month of each other. Of course, we won’t see any deals on the next-gen consoles–we doubt they’ll even be available to purchase–but there are still a lot of games and accessories that will work with the new consoles, and Prime Day is the perfect time to stock up before your Xbox Series X or S arrives. 2020 has been full of awesome deals on all things Xbox, and we expect Prime Day to be no different.

Amazon Prime Day lasts 48 hours and kicks off on Tuesday, October 13, at midnight PT / 3 AM ET. Amazon has already set some early Prime Day deals live, which consist of 4K TVs, smart home devices, and other tech gadgets. Unfortunately, you

Illustration for article titled Report: Microsoft Bringing Xbox Game Pass To iOS In 2021

Image: Microsoft

A few months back it seemed pretty unlikely that Microsoft would be able to bring its Xbox Game Pass (via xCloud streaming) to iOS devices, but a report today says that games boss Phil Spencer is telling employees it’ll be ready next year, and it’ll likely be using a browser to get around Apple’s restrictions.

As Business Insider reports, Spencer told staff at an all-hands meeting on Wednesday that Game Pass was looking to come to iPhone and iPad in 2021 using a “direct browser-based solution, which would get around Apple’s current insistence on being able to review every game made available for the service.

The Verge add that with that technology up and running, Microsoft would also be looking to bring the same kind of streaming availability to Windows 10 PCs, also in 2021.

It was only last month that changes Apple made to

Microsoft published and committed to following a list of 10 principles in its treatment of third-party apps on Windows, capitalizing on the ongoing backlash against Apple over the iPhone maker’s revenue sharing policies and restrictions on cloud streaming services in the iOS App Store.

The commitments include giving developers “the freedom to choose whether to distribute their apps for Windows through our app store,” and promising to allow competing app stores on Windows. In addition, Microsoft said in the post that it “will not block an app from Windows based on a developer’s business model or how it delivers content and services, including whether content is installed on a device or streamed from the cloud.”

The principles, published Thursday morning by Rima Alaily, Microsoft deputy general counsel, largely restate Microsoft’s existing practices. The company says it’s building on the ideas of the Coalition for App Fairness, which includes Epic Games,
