Xbox Series X/S Titles Could be Made Playable on Xbox One Via Cloud Streaming, Phil Spencer Suggests

2 days ago   |   By Gaming Bolt

The PS4 and the Xbox One aren't going to go away any time soon. Microsoft and Sony (not to mention several major third party devs and publishers) intend to keep supporting the current-gen consoles for at least a year or so even after their successors have launched, thanks to their large install bases. But it's possible that Microsoft might end up keeping the Xbox One around even longer than that.
Speaking to Kotaku in a recent interview, head of Xbox Phil Spencer said that though Microsoft's focus with cloud streaming currently remains on PC and mobile devices, it's possible that they...

Xbox Boss Acknowledges Having to Develop for Xbox Series X and Series S is Additional Work for Devs

2 days ago   |   By Gaming Bolt

Microsoft are adopting an interest approach as they enter next-gen, with the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S offering significantly different specs at significantly different prices to different audiences. That's great from a consumer's perspective, but for developers, who now have to factor in an additional spec list to support while making games, it's additional work.
Xbox boss Phil Spencer is aware of that, as you might expect, and acknowledges that it is indeed additional workload, Speaking in an interview with Kotaku , Spencer said that though developers now have to work with two...

Releasing More Xbox Games on Switch “Doesn't Feel Sustainable” - Phil Spencer

2 days ago   |   By Gaming Bolt

Microsoft have adopted a very non-traditional approach to several things in recent years (and will clearly continue doing so in the future), but seeing Xbox first party titles being released for the Switch has been quite surprising, with the likes of Ori and the Blind Forest and its sequels having come to Nintendo's platform.
Microsoft have, of course, suggested in the past that those releases don't indicate similar long-term plans for Switch support. But it's worth noting that after they said that, Ori and the Will of the Wisps ended up coming to the Switch. So going forward, what exactly...

More Xbox Series Console Iterations Already in the Works, Xbox Boss Suggests

2 days ago   |   By Gaming Bolt

The Xbox Series X is an impressive console in terms of its specs and the hardware. It is, clearly, the more powerful of the next-gen consoles releasing this Holiday- though it is outdone by the PS5 in one area. Sony's console has an SSD that is far faster than the Xbox Series X's (or any other SSD on the market, for that matter)- so does Microsoft have any plans on making improvements to their own console to bring its SSD closer to the PS5?
The question was recently posed to Xbox boss Phil Spencer in a recent interview with Kotaku. Spencer, surprisingly enough, said that Microsoft will...

Xbox Series S Actually Loads Some Games Faster Than Series X, Says Xbox Boss

Xbox Series S Actually Loads Some Games Faster Than Series X, Says Xbox Boss

2 days ago   |   By Gaming Bolt

The Xbox Series X/S and the PS5's SSDs have been emphasized greatly by Microsoft and Sony respectively, as well as various developers in the industry, and while the new consoles are going to benefit from their solid state drives in several ways, the one that we're going to see right off the bat and that's going to be immediately noticeable is load times, which are going to be cut down in games significantly .
You'd think that the Xbox Series S, which is considerably weaker than the Xbox Series X, will show less impressive results than its more powerful counterparts in this area, but it...
