an x-citing year ahead

Editor We’ve been talking a lot about the new Xbox, and wishful thinking has led us to coming up with our own versions of the next-gen console. Xbox Series Burke comes with a Flux Capacitor so Chris can get new releases years ahead of time. He’s playing Halo Infinite right now and laughing at the rest of the team. So we’re now well into 2020 and already this is shaping up to be the most exciting year in Xbox history. As you can see from our massive 2020 game preview this issue, there is an absolute shedload of great new games coming to Xbox One this year, from highly anticipated triple-A blockbusters to imaginative indie titles – proving this Xbox generation has plenty of life yet. By the end of the year,…

the oxm team

Adam Bryant Staff writer Series Bryant comes with immersive audio and plays the sounds of Nemesis’ and Mr X’s footprints around Adam’s house. He’s a mad one, our staff writer. Warren Brown Group art director Warren’s Series Brown looks just like the regular Series X, but with a rainbow stripe across one corner in tribute to his beloved ZX Spectrum retro computer. Drew Sleep Production editor Gaze at the tired eyes of our prod ed. “My surname is ironic,” he grumbles. His Series Sleep will help him off to the land of nod by gently releasing sleeping gas. Dave Meikleham Games editor The leader of the resolution revolution has created the Series Meiks, which can render things in a whopping 16K. He just needs to wait for TV tech to catch up.…

The big news this month is Microsoft’s reveal of the next generation of Xbox console. No longer need we refer to it as Project Scarlett. Instead, we have the Xbox Series X to look forward to by the end of this year! Unveiled in all its black-boxy glory at the Game Awards in December, we’re now super excited to see just what it can do. Read all about it from page 8 this month, and be sure to keep your eyes glued to OXM for more updates as we have them in the coming months! Another recent surprise reveal came courtesy of Capcom. Resident Evil 3 (p14) is being remade by the zombie masters, and following the success (and brilliance) of the Resi 2 remake, we’re thrilled it’s going to…

next-gen gets some x appeal

UNITED WE STAND Xbox Series X lets you place multiple games on standby to allow you to switch between titles much more quickly. Xbox partner director of program management Jason Roland confirmed the feature to GameSpot. “It’s about ensuring there’s less waiting and more time playing… that’s what we want to do with the consoles and services we have.” Sayonara, Scarlett. Never again will we have to call the next Xbox by its former codename. Instead, we can finally refer to Microsoft’s incredibly powerful new console by its actual name… hello, Xbox Series X! Microsoft wowed the world during last month’s Game Awards, with a truly startling hardware reveal. Still scheduled for a Holiday 2020 release, Xbox Series X is the boldest, beefiest console the Redmond firm has ever made. Just look at…

graphics galore

While we already know a decent amount about the CPU (central processing unit, its ‘brain’) powering Xbox Series X, the GPU (graphics processing unit) side is less clear. It seems likely a Navi-based unit from AMD will handle the next Xbox’s graphics, and in a recent interview with Gamespot, Phil Spencer talked about the tech that should allow the next-gen console to push all the polygons. “We wanted to have a dramatic upgrade from the Xbox One base console,” says Spencer. So when we do the math, we’re over eight times the GPU power of the Xbox One, and two times what an Xbox One X is.” The idea of two times the raw graphical power of Microsoft’s current premium machine is mouth-watering, though the firm hasn’t talked teraflops yet.
