Ubisoft: PS5 and Next Xbox Are a Minimum "2 Years" Away

Ubisoft: PS5 and Next Xbox Are a Minimum

Just before the Xbox One X released to players in the United States, Microsoft hosted a live stream event to celebrate the occasion with stars and fans alike.

So far, the Xbox One X has been quite popular and many games are getting updates which will see them perform better thanks to the new hardware. If they ordered a massive number of the Xbox One X and went through all of them, then hats off to everyone involved for filling a 4K gap that gamers bought up immediately. But the Xbox One X packs in a heap of extra raw processing power, turning out eye-melting 4K/HDR experiences that you can savour... assuming you have a 4K TV, of course. On PC, this is just an on/off toggle, and to be honest it doesn't radically affect the look of the game in Diablo's dark dungeons - only in brighter exterior scenes.

Microsoft's Xbox 360 was notorious in its first few iterations of the console for having a relatively high failure rate, with the "red ring of death" becoming something of a meme over time.

The enthusiasm that the Xbox community has for the new console is palpable.

Be sure to pick up your Xbox One X as soon as possible before they sell out.
