Xbox Series X will launch without first-party exclusives

Published

on

In a nutshell: the access console of each generation, because historically, there can only be one, it is usually the winner because it has the games that the players really want to play. The exclusive titles that make you shiver at the idea of ​​losing you, do you know them? Yes, well, Xbox Series X won’t have any.

Microsoft is throwing the rule book out the window, without even having read it. Microsoft will not produce any Xbox Series X titles that are not playable on Xbox One and PC, leaving you with fewer reasons for updating than you would normally expect in the launch of a new console.

“With the release of our content over the next year, two years, all of our games, more or less like PC, will be played up and down in the [Xbox] family of devices.”

In an interview with MCV, the head of Microsoft Studios, Matt Booty, said that Microsoft “wants to make sure that if anyone invests in Xbox between now and [X Series] they believe they have made a good investment and that we are committed to meeting the its contents. ”

From a consumer perspective, this is brilliant. I will be doubly happy to play the new Microsoft titles without paying for a new system. And they’ll have enough, one in three or four months, according to Booty.

Microsoft’s recent round of acquisitions has increased its total to fifteen, including some big names like Obsidian, which recently released The Outer Worlds.

This brings us to an interesting point; Will Microsoft limit its titles to PC and Xbox only or will it be open to sharing with Sony? Outer Worlds was launched simultaneously on Xbox One, PC and PS4 and also works on a Switch port. Microsoft also brought Cuphead, Ori and the Blind Forest to the Switch.

Leaving aside competition with Sony, Microsoft’s decision apparently makes the Xbox X series a less attractive purchase for Xbox One and PC owners. Almost the only reason to get the X series for Xbox One owners is the inclusion of fast SSDs, more pure power and potentially ray tracing. Nvidia tells me that every player considers ray tracing essential, even if I have my doubts.

Whatever Microsoft thinks, well. They made the launch of the Xbox Series X incredible for their fans on all platforms because Microsoft is still releasing epic launch titles like Halo Infinite, but now we won’t need to hand over a lot of money to play it.

OnePlus unveils new 120Hz QHD OLED display, likely coming to the OnePlus 8 Pro

Published

on

As expected, OnePlus today organized a communication event on screen technology, detailing its new mobile screen technology. According to the CEO of the company Pete Lau in Weibo, technology is now officially out of the research and development phase, which makes the appearance of the next OnePlus 8 phones very likely. According to a privileged source of information in the sector, we can Expect to see the new bright OLED in OnePlus 8 Pro. It’s normal for a brother to have a simpler alternative.

However, the really interesting part of the story is that OnePlus was kind enough to share some information-rich slides, which details the new display technology. These are in Chinese, I’m sorry if we lose some small details.

The star of the show here is, of course, the 120Hz refresh rate. As an additional guarantee of a smooth experience, OnePlus also announces a touch sampling frequency at 240Hz, as well as only 8.3 ms of rendering time for each frame.

Developing further, we have what OnePlus calls “Smooth Chain”. From what we can collect, it represents a combination of hardware and software optimization throughout the entire touch input and shows the output string, so that the delay between input and response can be minimized. A kind of smoothing of frame rates in games, similar to what Huawei has with its GPU Turbo technology, also seems to be at stake here, even if we don’t have details yet.

MEMC is another elegant feature, although conceptually new. It means Motion Stimation, Motion Compensation and is basically an intelligent layer to insert and interpolate frames capable of processing videos with lower frame rates of up to 120 simulated fps. This must be done in real time, since it is managed by an independent chip on the screen.

Last but not least, OnePlus also states that its new screen, or rather that of its supplier, since OnePlus does not produce panels, is very accurate in many aspects. The company is using the Just Noticeable Color Difference (JNCD) precision metric and claims a value below 0.8. Anything less than 1 on that scale is considered exceptional.

The new panel is also true of 10 bits, for a total of 1.07 billion colors. However, HDR support is not mentioned. Maybe OnePlus is still working on the certification. Finally, these new panels have 4096 brightness adjustment levels, compared to 1024. This could also be useful for any potential HDR implementation.
