X019 is tonight at 8pm.

https://www.xbox.com/en-GB/x019

Apparently we’ll see new IP from both Obsidian and Rare and release dates for Wasteland 3 and Minecraft Dungeons among others.



No doubt Game Pass will be all over it too. I see the Witcher 3 is coming to the service as seen in a Twitch ad...

So I just got home with my shiny new One X, and boy, the interface on this thing is shockingly bad isn't it. When you're using a games console, you'd think that it would have a section for, well, games, right? Nope. As far as I can tell they just nestle among the massive amount of adverts.

I really do think that Gamepass is the one thing that will save Microsoft this generation.

The 360 interface got worse every time they changed it.

None of the interfaces have been good, you stick that PS3 interface in a modern console and it wouldn't cope with all the extra stuff we have now.

Like what? What else do we have other than video capture which would be siloed in an app. The XMB is at its heart a cleaner non ADHD version of the PS4 one which is a cluttered mess of a UI.

The Switch has a near perfect UI. The home screen has a side-scrolling list of your installed games. Underneath this is your list of system apps. There's an account and settings button in the top left. That's it. I appreciate the Switch doesn't do half of what the other consoles do, but I really don't care about that stuff. All I want to do is turn my console on and tell it which game to load.
