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.
Check it out and let us know what you think. Is it a good ad?
Do You Already Hate The Sonic Movie?
The new Sonic movie trailer has everyone horrified and confused. Are you?
To the say the first official trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog film is a head-scratcher would the understatement of a lifetime. It is WACK!
We get a look at Sonic rendered in real life, as well as Jim Carrey’s Doctor Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik. If the tagline “Every hero has a genesis” is anything to go by, the movie will be an origin story for the blue hedgehog that was an integral part of our 90s gaming experience but struggles in today’s video game market.
To be honest, he looks downright creepy, which probably wouldn’t have been the case if the designers went for a cuter, more compact aesthetic like in the original 2D Sonic games.
Instead, we get scruffy, frizzy-looking creature “thing” that could easily be mistaken for an extremely lean man in a full-body costume, a man who likely skipped leg day one too many times.
Something along the line of Detective Pikachu would have definitely be more palatable, don’t you think?
If you hate Sonic’s look, enough to even be reluctant to watch the movie, you’re not alone. Reactions to the trailer have been hilarious , and the film’s official Twitter account has been swamped with thousands of responses.
So, are you happy with the direction Sega and Paramount took with the live-action Sonic movie? Let us know in the comments below.

Mortal Kombat 11 – Why Should You Be Excited?
There is a lot to look forward to in Mortal Kombat 11.
As the creator of two Injustice games and the mastermind behind the most popular fighting game series of all time — Mortal Kombat! — NetherRealm Studios has built a solid reputation for developing compelling fighting games and continues to deliver quality time and time again.
The Mortal Kombat fighting games have been captivating worldwide audiences with immeasurable violence, blood, gore, incredible narrative, and of course, unprecedented gameplay ever since the franchise’s birth in arcades back in 1992. Mortal Kombat 11 marks a new chapter for the fan-beloved franchise, and there is certainly good reason to be excited about it.
Mortal Kombat 11 story revolves around a new antagonist named Kronika, who has the ability to manipulate time. In Mortal Kombat 11 players will be able to fight as past and present versions of Mortal Kombat characters, which should make up an interesting narrative.
The Official Story Prologue trailer gave players a glimpse at the direction designers took in MK11. In it, we see Raiden torturing Shinnok, something that’s very out-of-character for our beloved God of Thunder. Brace yourself for some serious conflict in Mortal Kombat 11.
As with any new Mortal Kombat game, there are many characters to choose from, including plenty of familiar faces and some newcomers. Mortal Kombat should feature at least 25 unique characters in game’s roster on launch, with additional characters coming as DLC content.
In addition to being the first to experience debutants such as Geras or Kronika, you will get to explore the the changes NetherRealm Studio made to Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Baraka, Kano, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Raiden, and many other old-school characters.
Those who pre-ordered receive Shao Kahn as a playable character, while those who purchased the premium edition of Mortal Kombat 11 get the base game, plus a Kombat Pack that grants them six new DLC playable characters released over time and early access to DLC characters.
One of those DLC characters is Shang Tsung, who is voiced by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, the actor who played the iconic character in the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie.
Gameplay And Progression
Like previous installments, Mortal Kombat 11 will reward you with plenty of different game modes after you finish the main story. You will be able to play online, compete in various online ladders and so on. It also features a new campaign-style game mode called The Krypt, which will have you complete a variety of individual challenges in order to unlock rewards.
The long list of rewards includes a new progression system for every playable character in a game, similar to the one seen in Injustice 2; custom variations for every character; the ability to create your own look for your fighter of choice; and a much of gear.
All things point to Mortal Kombat 11 becoming a great fighting game worthy of its legendary name. The game launches on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 23rd, in May for the Nintendo Switch.
