The refresh Xbox Series console specs are discussed, and the team share their thoughts on Microsoft's direction for its next-gen machine. Is another AMD-based machine and 'the power of the cloud' ambitious enough for a new piece of 2028 hardware?

Interesting that when doing the retrospective on why XSX never really demonstrated better performance than PS5 that they never mention Cerny's tech discussion where he explained his take on why this would happen before release. They cover every possible scenario other than Cerny's. Don't know if they just think it's bullocks... certainly they couldn't have forgotten

Unfortunately it will be an always online console. Cloud powered and all. They tried with Crackdown and I get it CD or any game was too ambitious and Xbox One didn't nearly have the power to really pull off but now they could be full speed ahead especially knowing most ppl bought the S over the X.

DF seem to have questions regarding MS unconfirmed console. Rich doesn't see this as a true vision but a catch up to the PC instead. I say vote with your wallets 5 years down the line and I know nothing's final nor confirmed just be weary of MS plans if they do go off on the deep end again.

With that said it's just plans, nothing's confirmed or anything to be worried or excited about yet.

Yeah nothing to see here… except they tried once already with Xbox one reveal and this is just a continuation of that vision. It’s coming when they feel like they have enough suckered into Xbox ecosystem

Hell yea, that's all I got to say. I hope one day they re release the cold steel set, I completly missed them due to issues at the time. Now their pretty pricey.

NISA announced a combo Cold Steel III and IV for PS5, though, I and II are absent. available at NISA store.

Cool. I own them all for PS4 but I’ll grab 3/4 for PS5 too, why not. Hopefully they release 1/2 in another combo.

New Microsoft/Activision deal addresses previous CMA concerns in cloud gaming

The sale of Activision’s cloud gaming rights to Ubisoft substantially addresses previous concerns and opens the door to the deal being cleared, the CMA said today.

XiNatsuDragnel20h ago

A step 🚶‍♂️ in the direction.

Phil note to self “buy Ubisoft “

crazyCoconuts16h ago

exactly what i was thinking when i read this lol

Zeref16h ago

They're actually not allowed to buy Ubisoft. For 10 years at least lol

badz1493h ago

They don't want Ubi, they want Nintendo

Workshyskiver20h ago

Well at least this drama will be over in the next few weeks. Got to laugh at the CMA though, clearly just looked for a way to save face and act like they achieved anything remotely meaningful.

Profchaos19h ago

I don't want it to stop so far we've seen deep behind the iron curtain I want more

You’re probably not aware that it was MS that went back to the CMA to find ways that it could make the deal pass. Easy to get lost in all of the false narratives that many people put out there.

“Microsoft President Brad Smith has shared a company statement on the move, as the Xbox owner begins "considering how the transaction might be modified" to make it work for the UK CMA.
Here's the full quote from Microsoft:
"After today's court decision in the U.S., our focus now turns back to the UK. While we ultimately disagree with the CMA's concerns, we are considering how the transaction might be modified in order to address those concerns in a way that is acceptable to the CMA.
In order to prioritize work on these proposals, Microsoft and Activision have agreed with the CMA that a stay of litigation in the UK would be in the public interest and the parties have made a joint submission to the Competition Appeal Tribunal to this effect."

Workshyskiver14h ago

Em I am intently aware that as soon as the FTC lost the judge ruling and it became clear that only the CMA was in a position to offer any meaningful opposition both the CMA and MS appeared to the CAT to ask for a stop to their appeal.

CMA's ruling was clearly flawed and nonsensical as was becoming apparent in the CAT hearings and this micky mouse Ubisoft deal is just a way for them to back down with saving some face

Regardless on anyones position on whether the merger should go ahead both the FTC and CMA have done nothing but makes themselves both look clueless about gaming.

raWfodog9h ago

Cool, just showing you what came directly from the MS source. It’s status quo to ignore facts these days.

-Foxtrot19h ago(Edited 19h ago)

After the FTC leaks and Microsofts long term plans...I just can't believe this got passed anywhere buuuut money talks I guess

PhillyDonJawn17h ago

Most of those plans are no longer possible

Zeref16h ago

What exactly leaked that you think should be detrimental to this deal?

-Foxtrot12h ago

The fact that they are power hungry and it’s clear they aren’t going to stop, going for a monopoly or close to it within the gaming industry

Have you been living under a rock?

MrDead19h ago

The power of money on show. When you're as rich as MS you get handed industries as a reward for being rich. We've all seen the evidence of what MS has planned and now there's nothing to stop them.

Remember you don't have to be any good to be competitive, you just need a rich parent company.
