It's certainly not a technical issue as Fortnite accidentally allowed cross-play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users recently before turning the ability off. Rocket League developer Psyonix is merely waiting on the go-ahead from both companies to enable cross-play. It's the more affordable console. Three out of four of these new bundles come with a free game out of the box, while the remaining one highlights the company's Netflix-like game subscription service, called Xbox Game Pass. "It will be the console that sells". It's looking like you'll be able to experience all the classics in the very near future. The console's increased horsepower and more functionalities will be capable enough to give players an enhanced gaming experience even if they don't have a 4K TV, the executive noted.
First, he had this to say about cross-play. They've been great supporters and we continue to collaborate with them.
"But it's not for everybody".
There is no doubt in my mind that a certain segment of the market will be giddy about the Xbox One X. Anyone who has a 4K TV and is desperate for 4K content will probably be tempted to snag an Xbox One X when it launches on November 7th. It's hard to do that with gamers.
Activision Blizzard's (ATVI) Buy Rating Reaffirmed at Needham & Company LLC
Stifel Nicolaus reissued a "buy" rating and issued a $71.00 target price on shares of Activision Blizzard in a report on Monday. Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) earnings have risen with a quarterly rate of 6.8% over the last 5 years.
Such a setup of premium gaming was so far typical to the PCs, but now consoles are also joining in.
Microsoft has announced four new Xbox One S bundles earlier today. Many were assuming that Microsoft were pitching the Xbox One X as the successor to the Xbox One, and would therefore have a slew of games waiting in the wings for its release, but if they believe that its sales won't compare to those of the Xbox One S then where has the support been for the console throughout 2017? For such gamers, the executive cleared that with the comment, the "Xbox One S will be the market leader for us".
Spencer said they are on track when it comes to backward compatibility. I feel really good. In fact, he teased that details of backwards compatibility on the Xbox One X are still to be revealed.
