No PSX Event from Sony this year, but Microsoft to host X018 Event

PlayStation Experience is a press industry event known as PSX in dedication to the original PlayStation game console. Every year since 2014 Sony has hosted one of these. It’s usually been a vehicle for Sony to make announcements outside of, and ancillary to, their annual E3 Press Conference. This year, perhaps more than ever, fans were looking forward to the event since their E3 showing was very light. Despite having a dominance in the market and never ending stream of great games, it appears Sony isn’t too worried about hosting big events and showing off their lineup right now.

Gamescom 2018: NVIDIA RTX Press Conference Full WrapUp & Videos

Jensen Huang (CEO of NVIDIA) took stage in Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany where almost half a million press, analysts, distributors, and other industry professionals meet yearly for Gamescom to host a special NVIDIA RTX 2018 Press Conference. During this full length presentation we were given the unveiling of a brand new graphics card series that had been heavily rumored for some time now. Incorporating next-generation video memory of top tier quality, a new 12 nano-meter manufacturing process, and a new focus on Ray Tracing, the NVIDIA RTX line of GPU hardware will be set to release this year with the first model becoming available next month on September 20, 2018.

There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the sudden change from GTX to RTX and it has left many gamers and tech experts scrambling to gather information about whether or not the RTX will be as big of a leap or as immediately compatible as NVIDIA claims. The jury is still out on that, and it would be best to both pay attention to emerging analysis as well as keep an open mind over the coming months, for now though, here’s everything we know…

Dead Cells Review

Dead Cells is a rogue-like Metroid-vania style game developed by the studio Motion-Twin. So this game features procedurally generated areas which is something new to the genre of Metroid-vania since it’s usually all about remembering the layout of the map, finding secrets in it, and back tracking to older areas to unlock newer areas. Dead Cells throws all of that on its head with making everything well randomized. Survive long enough and you can play it like Metroid, but die and it’s time to start over. Sure, some of the areas are pre-designed, but they are constantly randomized, so you will never know where to go next whenever a new life begins.

Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. release date announced by Bethesda Game Studios

October 2018 will be a very special time for those who still pre-order once in a while in an age where many game companies make us want to “wait-and-see” instead. Big bro Todd Howard (a.k.a.

(Break-It-Early Test Application) period will launch in October for Xbox first, then PS4 and PC.

Pre-Gamescom 2018: Microsoft will announce new Xbox One bundles and accessories

It would seem the gaming world got a little too excited this morning when Microsoft vaguely hinted “all-new hardware” would be shown off at Gamescom 2018 only to later clarify that while this won’t be the reveal of Xbox Project Scarlet, the next-generation console expected to release in 2020 or 2021, instead they plan to announce a new Xbox One system bundle and new accessories (possibly including a rumored Elite Controller iteration that was alleged leaked recently).

This information was originally debuted in an article titled Xbox is coming to gamescom by Xbox media spokesperson Major Nelson, who himself started off as a self-made games journalist detailing news revolving around the original Xbox before eventually being hired on by Microsoft as a permanent figurehead to the brand. For those wondering, technically the event is meant to be spelled in all lowercase letters as per stylized renditions and logos, Major Nelson didn’t make an error it’s just the weird way the biggest gaming event in Germany likes to have their name typed out.

As for the leaked controller, nothing is certain yet but there are some details floating around the internet in the form of rumors as to what will be seen this August 21 – 25 when Gamescom commences.
