Just yesterday we had one of the next generation’s surprises. NBA 2K21 dropped the bomb: The standard version of Xbox Series X will cost more than that of Xbox One. In this case, only 5 euros more, up to € 75, but for North America, there was an increase of $ 60 usual at $ 70, a very steep climb.
And apart from the anger of users with 2K, the absence of Smart Delivery for the Xbox One version, and some niceties like that with the € 100 version of Xbox One they give you free Xbox Series X, it seems that in Generally, many distributors aim to raise prices.
The truth is that if we look at it from the purest logic, in 2020 the games at € 69 release still seem expensive, but seeing the evolution of prices for all these years, the reality is that they should cost at least 80 € to match levels of money value 10 years ago.
This Gameindustry article states that studios are facing production cost increases of between 200% and 300%, making this new step seem almost inevitable.
Therefore, it is also inevitable that the user begins to look for cheaper options, which reduce their spending as much as possible, without giving up news. And for that, Xbox Game Pass is perfect.
A catalogue in constant renewal, which adds titles with less than a year since its launch and even with “day-one” premieres, including bombings such as Forza Horizon 4, Gears 5 or the future Halo Infinite.
The value of Microsoft’s service is enormous, but this rise in prices of new products for the next generation exponentially increases this virtue.
Xbox Series X and Microsoft, indirect beneficiaries of this rise
Because not only services like Xbox Game Pass, PS Now, Origin Access or EA Access benefit from this. In this case, if we are in the starting position that a new generation console must support, adding an extra cost to new games (with which you surely want to release your console), is an actual weight for the user.
But what if I told you that all the games of the last generation work correctly, and for only € 10 a month you could access almost 200 games, including news for your new console? Indeed the balance begins to tip to one side.
This is another of the advantages with which you could start your Xbox Series X adventure – and Xbox Series S more intensely -, scoring the same for the user.
Summing up, Xbox Series X would be more powerful, with more initial catalog, an accessible service such as Xbox Game Pass, and a price, which, if compared to that of its Sony counterpart, would give an enormous reason to start the next generation hand in hand Xbox.
Pumpkin Jack will also receive Ray Tracing in its free version for Xbox Series X
Just a year later and this time, ready for Halloween, Pumpkin Jack returns to the attack with a version adapted for Xbox Series X and PS5, without details at the moment for Xbox Series S, which of course will receive improvements, but still undetermined.
And it is that this arcade of platforms so colorful and particular we are sure that it will paint great with the typical improvements of the new generation. If you don’t know what we thought last year, here is the analysis, which is precisely from a server.
Specifically, we are not talking about any improvement, because again, another title is aimed at both including Ray Tracing, in this case, Pumpkin Jack will have two graphic modes, one based on Quality, which reaches 4K resolution, quality ultra effects or shadows and ray tracing, however, will run at 30fps.
On the other hand, we will have the well-known performance mode, which should not be despised, since it discards some of the ultra and Ray Tracing improvements, but still maintains the 4K objective, but at 60 fps.
Pumpkin Jack arrives at the nextgen in time for Halloween
It should be remembered how curious Pumpkin Jack is and the merit of being developed by a single person, Nicolas Meyssonier, all in Unreal Engine and with an incredible result that reminds us a lot of the golden age of platforms like Medievil.
We will have to be attentive to their new projects, but for now, we can only tell you that this update is totally free, so if you bought it at the time and you have not touched it yet, perhaps this is the moment. Well, rather on October 27, which will be when the version of this generation is released.
Watch Dogs Expansion: Legion Titled Bloodline Officially Released Today
Some time ago, Ubisoft announced the presence of an expansion for its open-world game, Watch Dogs: Legion, entitled Bloodline.
The expansion, which presents the stories of two iconic characters from the Watch Dogs series, namely Aiden Pearce and Wrench, has finally been launched this Wednesday (7/7/21).
The Bloodline expansion is currently available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via EGS or the Ubisoft Store.
In this expansion, players will later play as Aiden Pearce who must find Wrench because he has a special task so that his brother Jackson is not harmed.
In addition to bringing the Bloodline expansion, Ubisoft is also presenting a new Season Pass in Watch Dogs: Legion which brings a lot of interesting content and also the option to add Aiden or Wrench to DedSec Resistance in the campaign and online mode.
It is known that Aiden Pearce will come with abilities such as Focus for Slowmo aiming, System Crash to turn off electronic devices, and also Gunslinger to give buff damage. Then for Wrench, there are abilities such as Summon Sergei, Ninja Balls, Lady Smash, and MPX SMG/LTL Grenade Launcher.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order optimized today for Xbox Series X and S
With The Mandalorian still kicking its tail among Star Wars fans with the enormous success of its second season, one of the titles that we wanted to take up is precisely Jedi Fallen Order, the single-player adventure that the masters of Respawn brought us to the end. of 2019. Thanks to the addition of EA Play on November 11 to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, we can play on our Xbox without any excuse, but today we have a greater incentive.
And it is that without warning, Electronic Arts has just announced the details of the update now available, which optimizes Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5. An exceptional way to revive or decide to play this huge title in the next-gen. These are the details of the patch:
Xbox Series X :
- Performance mode : Frame rate increased to 60 FPS and dynamic resolution added from 1080p to 1440p
- Normal mode : Post-processing has been increased to 4K and dynamic resolution in the range of 1512p to 2160p
Xbox Series S :
- Frame rate increased to 60 FPS (was 45 FPS) and dynamic resolution range (unspecified).
Jedi Fallen Order is the next target for your Xbox Series
As you can see, Xbox Series S, having no distinction between modes, does not enjoy that post-processing improvement, but in the patch notes we can see that PS5 does not improve in the same way as Xbox Series X, having only one mode that combines all at 1200p, 60fps and 1440p post-processing. With this attitude, have no doubt that we will soon see the corresponding technical comparison between versions.
One way or another, it’s a great time to decide to try this gem of action that many consider one of the best games of 2019 and possibly of the generation. With a sequel already planned by Respawn again, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is well worth keeping an eye on.
