Cross-Platform Play Openly Discussed at Gamescon

Xbox Head of Marketing Aaron Greenberg

Gaming News Update

by WeirdosXxXx.com

According to an interview conducted by Gamereactor.eu,  the head of marketing at Xbox, Aaron Greenberg states that cross-platform play is in the works with Sony Playstation.

Although cross-platform capable games like Minecraft and Rocket League have skyrocketed in popularity since they debuted, Playstation has been notoriously reluctant to enter the cross-platform environment.  The success of such a venture would mark a great shift in the online gaming dynamic.

Greenberg’s brief comment on the idea of having gamers from PC, Xbox, and Playstation come together was hopeful but it could be assumed that he could not legally comment further on the actual talks and agreements made with Sony Playstation.

Games such as Sea of Thieves and Rise of Nations have been recently announced to be available for download on both Windows 10 and Steam.

Greenberg also made mention that Xbox One X sales have been extremely positive across the World.  He reveled  that are teams working on back-catalog upgrades to certain games that will allow Xbox One X owners to go back and play old titles in 4K UHD.  Gears of War 4, Halo 5, and Halo Wars 2 are some of the games being worked on.  It is to be understood that Xbox X owners have 4K UHD televisions.

Although 4KUHD games are few, titles such as Forza Motorsports 7, Star Wars Battlefront II, and the new Tomb Raider are on the way.  Ironically, the November 7th Xbox One X release date comes almost a month after Forza 7 (October 3rd).

Xbox One X Project Scorpio Pre-Order

Submitted by Editor

Today at approximately 5pm WeirdosXxXx Correspondent Boss Baller a.k.a. R Dubb a.k.a. Uncle Rico received an important phone call.

The call came at approximately 5pm on a gorgeous South Jersey Sunday following a weekly meeting (and tuxedo fitting) with WeirdosXxXx.com advisors XixdOUGHNUTsxiX and MixedWhiteBoy.

After a P.J. Wheelihans lunch, we headed back to Echo Base to review the affairs of the week which included plans for the Mayweather/ McGregor fight next weekend as well as some tentative plans for a New York Supreme Store trip.  We just finished watching the Kill Bill Movies and decided to break the fellowship.   The day even had an impact on the ceaseless energy that Boss Baller emits like that of a hydro-electric power plant.

I stepped out of the quiet suburban solitude and into the late-afternoon August Sun and prepared my mind for the sixty-mile drive back home and the chaos of “Shore Traffic”.  As I put the key in the ignition, my “gamer’s eyes” caught the motion of R Dubb’s front door swinging open wildly from across the street.  The hydro-power was back in his step as he bounded down his manicured front yard toward his twin-turbo-powered grocery-getter.

The call was from the GameStop where Boss Baller earns enough Power-Up Rewards points to buy small countries in South America.  He had already hit his remote-starter and by the time I ignited the Toyota V8 sitting in 3 feet in front of me, Boss Baller was in his vehicle and  shouted “THE PRE-ORDER IS RELEASED!  GAMESTOP JUST CALLED ME!”

We tore the pavement up with a combined 710 foot pounds of torque toward the GameStop a mile away.  Even right now it is disputed whether R Dubb actually turned his vehicle off.  As he flung the door open and as we stepped inside my eyes had to re-adjust to the “gamer lighting conditons” GameStop utilizes.  We gamers typically prefer cave-like environments and any good GameStop understands this concept.

Boss bowled his way passed the shelves of Pokémon toys and GameStop Exclusive Xûr Funko Pops straight to the register.  A familiar face was already at the register…it was Doughnuts.  Boss Baller, the Shot Caller, informed  Doughnuts that the 4K UHD, 8-core Xbox One X pre-order had just begun.

According to the Sales Representative at GameStop,  there was a limit of 10 Scorpio pre-orders PER STORE.  Unlike a typical pre-order for a game, gamers had to put up a $100 (USD) deposit.  WeirdosXxXx.com was there at 5:05PM and can account for two pre-orders.  By the time Boss and Doughnuts finished up it was about quarter-after and the clerks reported that the system seemed to have shuttered momentarily due to the network volume.

If you haven’t pre-ordered what WeirdosXxXx is going to dub the XXbox (Say “Xbox One X” out loud a bunch of times…XXbox rolls off the tongue better), your chances of scoring one on Ebay or Amazon are possible but at high-cost.  As of the submission of this article, there have already been sales as high as $699 USD.  The retail price is $499.

Xbox and Doritos have Joined Forces in Mexico

Yes, this exists, but you have to go to Mexico to get it.  This is actually one of 6 known variations.  Even http://doritos.com.mx/gaming/ doesn’t have Sabor Chiles Ahumados.

Microsoft Studios and Xbox have kicked-off a major marketing campaign to generate interest in their upcoming XBOX ONE X console.   Frito Lay’s Doritos will contain codes for prizes and other considerations.

 

There is no word yet as to when these bags will be made available outside of Mexico.  It is typical for food manufacturers to have limited, regional test-bed for certain new flavors.  Mexico has in recent years seen a steady increase in video game console sales.  Xbox 360 has dominated Latin America for years and this latest X Console will test Microsoft’s strength in an area where the average monthly income is just over $800 USD…not far off the speculated Price of the Xbox One X.

This is the box that will be promoted for the new marketing campaign.  For the price of the new console, they better have those bags of  Sabor Chiles Ahumados.

Pokémon Go Fest Chicago Issues Addressed by Niantic CEO John Hanke

 

 

 

 

WeirdosXxXx.com correspondents were among the 20,000+ who attended the Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago.  They reported that although the event was a great chance to meet fellow Pokemon fans, it was plagued with a few technical issues.  The biggest problem was that service and connectivity would not allow users to access the game in the vicinity of the event.

Niantic CEO John Hanke issued a statement:

“Technical issues with our game software caused client crashes and interfered with game-play for some users. The game-play issue was resolved with a server configuration change and the crashes were also addressed for many but not all users.” Hanke explained.

“A more protracted problem was caused by over-saturation of the mobile data networks of some network providers. This caused many attendees to be unable to access Pokémon Go or other Internet services. Network congestion also led to a login issue which affected some users able to access the Internet.” he continued.

He added, “Real-world events are core to the Niantic mission of exploration, exercise and social interaction. We’ve been doing events since the early days of Ingress in 2012.  Last Saturday was not a happy day for us but so that we can continue to build experiences that bring together people, technology, and the real world in innovative ways.”

WeirdosXxXx is currently developing a more in-depth article on the Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago so check back later today.  It will include pictures of the event and plenty of details of what you missed from our own coverage!

NOT just another gaming site.
