Xbox’s Bethesda acquisition is evidence of blockbuster gaming’s volatility – VentureBeat

Microsoft’s Xbox gaming division is acquiring The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim publisher Bethesda for $7.5 billion. And it’s difficult to overstate how much this changes gaming. The easiest way for me to think about this is that Xbox just bought one of the only other companies that actually has a major media presentation during E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show) each year. This has led to a lot of talk about what the purchase means for Xbox and its Game Pass subscription service. But the deal tells us just…

RTX 3080 review: It’s time to get into PC gaming – Polygon

Now is the best time to get into PC gaming. The high-end graphics cards are cheaper than the last generation. The release of new consoles means AAA games will finally make use of all that graphical power. And most importantly, the PC ecosystem has never been so robust and consumer-friendly. The question is, “How much should you spend?” The RTX 3080 is the Goldilocks entry of Nvidia’s latest line of graphics cards. At $699, it’s more powerful and more expensive than the RTX 3070, but less powerful and a lot…

PS5 Pre-Order Mess Put into Perspective as Xbox Buyers Are Also Forced to Scramble – Push Square

Whether you’re a part of the PlayStation Nation or a member of Team Xbox, pre-ordering a next-gen console has not been easy. Sony was slaughtered last week when PS5 pre-orders were unleashed without any real notice. The situation was such a mess that the Japanese giant actually had to come out and apologise for it.

This Microsoft Flight Simulator video highlights 40 years of PC gaming changes – The Verge

Microsoft kicked off its virtual Ignite conference today with a look back at how Microsoft Flight Simulator has changed since its introduction in 1982. The nearly 40-year history shows just how much PC gaming has changed, to the point where Microsoft Flight Simulator can now accurately (most of the time!) map out the real world into a virtual one. Microsoft’s video begins with Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0, which was originally released in 1982 for IBM-compatible PCs. It allowed players to fly a Cessna 182 across New York, Seattle, Los Angeles,…

Microsoft gives Outlook for Mac a facelift for Big Sur – Engadget

“We wanted you to feel at home while using Outlook for Mac without sacrificing what makes Outlook, well, Outlook,” said Microsoft marketing program manager Jessica Wilczek in a blog post. Of course, Outlook’s new aesthetic isn’t all Microsoft has been working on. The company is also touting extra customization options this year, and folded its My Day smart list directly into the main Outlook canvas so users can more quickly grapple with the rest of their agenda. What we haven’t seen much of is Outlook’s new approach to viewing and…

Xbox Series X pre-orders sold out, Xbox Series S still in stock in the UK

You might still be able to get an Xbox Series S (pic: Microsoft) GAME, Amazon, Very, and all the rest have sold out of Xbox Series X pre-orders, but you can still get an Xbox Series S if you’re quick. It is currently impossible to pre-order an Xbox Series X in the UK, but that’s okay because it stayed in stock a lot longer than the PlayStation 5 and this time everyone had fair warning of when pre-orders started.
