Microsoft has launched its marketing blitz for the Xbox One S, and it isn’t holding any punches. The company’s latest TV Ad touts the slimmed-down system’s 4K Blu-Ray player, something the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro oddly don’t have.
In fact, the ad specifically mentions that the Xbox One S is the “only console with 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray,” offering owners both physical and streaming media. The PS4 Pro only supports 4K streaming of media from Netflix and YouTube, while the Slim offers niether.
The video also promotes the Xbox One S’s high dynamic range support, showcasing Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4.

From Red Dead Revolver To Red Dead Redemption – How Rockstar Turned Failed Capcom Project Into Success
Like many great successes, the critically-acclaimed Western action adventure game had humble beginnings.
Red Dead Redemption has grown to become an industry powerhouse, but this wasn’t always the case.
Let’s time travel back to 2002, when Capcom and Angel Studios first showed the world their latest arcade shooter: Red Dead Revolver. Originally influenced by Tenchu: Stealth Assassin, and mixing elements of Panzer Dragoon and “really bad Japanese action games,” the game was described by designer Dominic Craig as not being very good.
As fate would have it, Red Dead Revolver would eventually find its way to Rockstar Games, albeit in a convoluted yet fun story that can be perused in the latest video from People Make Games, the media project founded by ex-Eurogamer video game enthusiast Chris Bratt.
The video is not only illuminating, but it’s also very good. Make sure to watch it all the way to the end to see the inspiration behind Red Dead Revolver’s box art
Sprouting from the ashes of failure, the Red Dead Redemption has come a very long way. Let us know what you think about Bratt’s piece the comments below.
This Is What You Get When Spider-Man Meets Mortal Kombat
Knocking out enemies would have some visible snap, crackle and pop.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is a game full of fast-paced combat that allows you to knock enemies out in many different ways, but as a T-rated game, the action is presented in a cartoony, less violent way that might leave some gamers wishing for more. You can bet things would have looked different if NetherRealm Studios was trusted with its development.
In fact, knocking enemies out in Spider-Man may not have looked that much different from Mortal Kombat fatalities if such was the case, as demonstrated in this small footage shared by NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon…

As convincing as the combat looks, it is carefully edited sequences from Spider-Man with Mortal Kombat fatalities. This is not some early prototype of a NetherRealm Spider-Man game, though I wish it was.
Would like to see an M-rated Spider-Man game sometime in the future?

This is an Assassin’s Creed game unlike any other.
Set in ancient Greece, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey builds on what made origins so good, bringing back some of the beloved features the franchise is known for while introducing radical new changes and departures — most notably, an RPG-driven dialogue wheel, the ability to play either as a male or a female protagonist, and the ability to choose between romance options — that could potentially change the face of the series forever.
Unlike the previous Assassin’s Creed games, this launch trailer uses gameplay footage rather than CGI, but it still manages to be engaging. It showcases some of the gameplay elements players can expect, as well as the locations they will frequent. We also get a bit on the story and how the choice you make will affect it.
