Today, Microsoft announced what they had previously teased. The motherfuckers are working on an Xbox streaming stick as well as Game Pass Smart TV apps. While the technology ain’t all the way there yet, it’s wild to see a gaming giant officially embracing the future. Just smooching it. Rubbing on it. Maybe not putting it all the way in yet, but the tip is getting teased. It is!

Xbox Chief says Bethesda deal is going to deliver “great exclusive games” and maybe my Xbox Series X will get turned on!

xbox bethesda exclusive games

As a gaming glutton, I received the Xbox Series X for Christmas. You know, after already owning a PlayStation 5. However, the motherfucker has sort of just sat there, awaiting exclusive games worth playing. I had a hunch they’d arrive eventually, given the impending Bethesda deal. Now? Now I officially know. Today, the motherfucking Microsoft Czar Phil Spencer confirmed the Bethesda deal is going to deliver “great exclusive games” which is equal parts not surprising and awesome news. For me.

Xbox head Phil Spencer believes motherfucking COVID-19 will cause delays in 2021. Son of a bitch!

xbox head phil spencer covid 19 delays 2021

Thus far, COVID-19 hasn’t really fucked Microsoft or Sony’s 2020 plans. For the most part. But, Xbox head Phil Spencer predicts the effects will be felt in 2021. Aiight, aiight. Just please don’t let this delay Cyberpunk this year.

Rumor: Microsoft is going to reveal a cheaper Xbox Series X model next month. Bro, the first model ain’t even fucking out!

xbox series x cheaper model

The Xbox Series X ain’t even launched, and there’s already rumors of a cheaper model. This ain’t new, as there have been rumors for a while about both PS5 and Xbox Series X launching with both a base and cheaper model. But, I’m beginning to think these rumors are legitimate.

The next Xbox is called “Xbox Series X” and it’s dropping Holiday 2020. I’m fucking ready!

Microsoft has officially revealed its next-gen console, folks. It’s called the Xbox Series X (really as fine as any name), and it’s dropping Holiday 2020. Not only that, but we’ve gotten a look at it! And from a tech fetishist perspective? It’s sexy.

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.

Xbox’s next console Project Scarlett won’t do VR because “no one’s asking for it” and I respect that shit

xbox project scarlett no vr

Let’s get it out of the way, you fucking pendants. Surely, some people are asking for VR. But, I’m in support of Microsoft’s decision not to do VR on Project Scarlett. Why? It’ll let the fuckers concentrate on why people buy a new XBOX: the fucking games. It’s a refreshing refocus. You know, after trying to be a jack-of-all-trades at the beginning of this console cycle with a fucking Kinect, and a TV tuner, and other bullshit.

Microsoft ain’t working on a streaming-only Xbox, despite what we all heard this year. Personally? I don’t give a shit.

microsoft not streaming xbox

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. This isn’t a surprise on Sony’s part. However, everyone was readying themselves at E3 for Microsoft’s Big Streaming Reveal. And that shit didn’t happen, and apparently won’t be anytime soon.

Nintendo Switch outsold PlayStation and Xbox in May. This makes sense, them consoles fucking oldddd

nintendo switch outsold xbox playstation may

The Nintendo Switch is still absolutely fucking beasting, friends. Meanwhile, the current iterations of the PlayStation and Xbox are starting to flag behind in monthly sales. But, this makes sense. The Nintendo Switch dropped two years ago, while the other two are closing in on six years old. Still, it’s an interesting time in the console wars, no?
