White Xbox One devkit surfaces November 4, 2016

A reportedly legitimate image of a white Xbox One devkit has surfaced on the internet.

The alleged “XB1 dev” posted on Reddit that “the zebra ones were also earlier devkits. We’ve gone though several revisions since the original alpha kit (giant server case) and the current one we have looks like the launch version.”

Previous versions of the kit featured zebra stripes and PC-tower setup, to prevent image leaking. Would you prefer this, even as an option?

Xbox One game prices announced for the UK

Today, Microsoft announced that Xbox One games in the UK will have a tag of £49.99 RRP (recommended retail price).  The OXM spotted these on Microsoft’s online store, with the games Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5 and Kinect Sports Rivals costing that much. It’s worth noting that UK retailers always undercut these prices.

State-side, Microsoft announced on an earlier date that first-party games would be sold for 59.99$, the current price for Xbox 360 games.

Xbox or Playstation 4 for Christmas 2016?

A year ago, any gamer would have told you hands down to buy a PlayStation 4 from Sony. I think the decision is much harder this year. Microsoft has brought a whole new slew of features to the Xbox One making it much more enticing. You’ve got the Windows 10 roll out to Xbox One revamping the entire OS. You’ve got the ability to play all your older 360 games now for free. You’ve got exclusives like Tomb Raider and Halo. Oh dear, Halo. It makes things tough. PlayStation 4 is still the graphics juggernaut out of the two. But everything else has kinda evened up. I am not going to tell you to go with one or the other, I still am a big PC guy and probably always will be. To be honest here, I’ve just got too much invested in my PC gaming set up. We’re talking over $1,500 in my system, plus the desk, and office chair. Then gaming keyboard, gaming mouse, the list goes on so you probably get the jist of things.
