Microsoft is planning second next-gen Xbox that’s cheaper and has no disc drive. Different models GET!

Friends, Microsoft’s carrying their multi-model console approach over into the next generation. It’s leaked out that the company ain’t just dropping their beefy, all-powerful next-gen console. Nope! Nope. Additionally, they’re going to be less powerful model, sans disc drive, for less cheddar.  It makes sense! I’m going all-in on the outrageously powerful model. But, it makes sense.

Microsoft bringing back Xbox All Access bundles with Project Scarlett upgrade included in one. G’damn that’s gotta be tempting for some!

Microsoft is bringing back its All Access bundle. The motherfucker is essentially the same as a cell phone subsidization or whatever — you pay as little as $19.99 a month for 24-months. In return? You get a console, XBL, and Xbox Game Pass. But, wait, there’s more! If you choose to opt into the Xbox One X bundle? You’ll get a free upgrade to Project Scarlett next year.

Pretty fucking dope deal, no?

Friends, the streaming revolution ain’t arriving as soon as we expected. Sure, Google has revealed Stadia. But, neither Sony nor Microsoft is ready to go in dick-first. At least not quite yet.

Microsoft don’t have any fucking exclusives I care about, man. But, the company has been going on a shopping spree lately. They announced a slew of acquisitions at E3, and now they’re close to snagging Obsidian. At least they ain’t taking their lack of exclusive library laying down anymore.
