Xbox Teams up with Eleague for Gears 5 eSports Partnership

Xbox Teams up with Eleague for Gears 5 eSports Partnership
Published by: forahobby on Monday, May 06, 2019
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

Even though a release date for the highly anticipated Gears 5 is yet to be announced, Xbox and Eleague have entered into a wide-ranging partnership which will celebrate the eSports community of the Gears of War franchise as well as launch the next chapter of competitive Gears play on the new game.

Xbox Teams up with Eleague for Gears 5 eSports Partnership

The Gears of War series, from the original trilogy through to Judgement and then Gears of War 4 has long proven to be one of the Xbox’s most popular exclusive titles. This partnership with Eleague is surely intended to bolster the franchise further, enhancing its appeal to the ever-growing online and competitive gaming community.

Making Gears 5 the biggest instalment yet


It all started with Gears of War in 2006 on the Xbox 360. Not only was the game’s trailer incredibly enticing at the time, but the gameplay itself was deeply satisfying while working through the powerful storyline. The Gears of War franchise has remained a major selling point of the Xbox console, with the 2016 release of Gears of War 4 ranking as the Xbox One’s best-selling exclusive title worldwide, per Statista, in the year of its release.

Since the release of Gears of War 4, the eSports industry has exploded to become what is now reported by Fortune as being a $1.1 billion industry. The world of eSports has introduced a level of engagement for fans and players to the games that they enjoy, offering exciting viewing and the chance to win huge sums of money if a player is good enough at the game.

But it’s not just games that the industry appeals to; its massive viewership numbers have piqued the interest of third parties, from sponsorships and investments from traditional sports stars to new services catering to eSports fans. The increasingly popular industry boasts such a huge amount of appeal and legitimacy now that professional bookmakers can now offer their services to eSports fans, with eSports-specific bookies like Betway emerging to offer markets on LoL, DOTA 2, Rainbow Six, CS:GO, and quite possibly Gears 4 when its eSports scene is up and running later this year.

Xbox One S: The advantages and disadvantages of the Microsoft console

Xbox One S: The advantages and disadvantages of the Microsoft console
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

In the video games industry, it seems that although the most recognized brands such as Nintendo and PlayStation steal the attention of the world’s gamers with their products, Xbox becomes a serious challenger with a console that offers several interesting services: we’re talking about Xbox One S.

Xbox One S: The advantages and disadvantages of the Microsoft console

The console of the North American company has a possibility to be the best one. Xbox One is an ideal move for those who only wish to install the platform and start playing, without thinking of any excessive expense to buy a title. After all, now is the era of the Internet and if we don't have enough money to buy, we have more options. Curious? Just click here!

To note, Xbox gives the possibility to access a wide catalog of several successes, such as exclusive releases of most popular games like see Halo 5, the Gears of War franchise, State of Decay, or other classics and even sports ones. To use them, the games are installed on the hard drive and they can’t be played through the cloud like other options.

The advantage of Xbox Game Pass is to be able to subscribe for $ 6,990 per month, although first we have the option of a free trial of 14 days, so we can decide whether we need to take membership or not. On the other hand, one of the advantages of the service is to be able to have from the day of release the new titles that come from franchises that Xbox handles. In this way, we can enjoy video games such as Forza Horizon 4, Crackdown 3, among others.

However, this platform is not the only platform capable of exploiting Xbox One S, because there are also other options to enjoy content through streaming with various applications such as Netflix or YouTube, or to play movies in 4K format, thanks to Blu-ray player enabling this technology.

The above is added value, because unlike competition, there is no console capable of displaying this type of content on discs with this format, except for services via an Internet connection.

Regarding low points, even though we have an extensive game catalog to take advantage of the devices, it's no less true that exclusive games present on Xbox aren't as much as what the competition provides, so if we search for products that point more to titles that can't be found in elsewhere, this console is not the best one, not considering that some games can also be achieved via PCs.

However, it is worth mentioning that the latter can be an advantage, because we have the Play Anywhere feature, which means that we can play launches and resume them from various platforms, either on the console or on the computer. As we can see, with Xbox One S we have advantages and disadvantages, but again, if we need a console that can cover many games, One S is the best.

It is important to note that the Xbox One S can upscale 1080p games to 4K - it isn't a real 4K console. The Xbox One X retains all the media sensibilities of the Xbox One S with an Ultra HD (4K) Blu-ray player, support for HDR content and Dolby Atmos.

Xbox One X Enhanced 360 Titles

Xbox 360 games that are enhanced for Xbox One X run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count on Xbox One X.

Today’s additions join the seven previously released Enhanced Xbox 360 titles like Halo 3, Skate 3, and Gears of War 3 for a total of 11 Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 games.

Here is the full list of Xbox 360 games that are in the Xbox One X Enhanced catalog:

When you play Enhanced Xbox 360 games on Xbox One X, you can now choose how to experience them—with enhanced graphics or in their original form. Enhanced graphics will be turned on by default, running your game with higher resolution, 9X the pixel count, increased texture details and antialiasing, allowing you to enjoy greater visual clarity than ever before. If you turn off the Graphics setting, the graphics will be comparable to the experience on Xbox One or Xbox One S. Here’s how to access the setting. Note, once you change the setting, you’ll need to restart the game:

  1. Press “View” and “Menu” buttons on the controller to pull up the Xbox 360 guide
  2. Navigate to “Settings” blade
  3. Select “Xbox One X Settings”

Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 Guide


  1. Select to optimize for “Graphics” or “Performance”


We’re thrilled with the continued excitement for Xbox One Backward Compatibility—the community has played more than 840 million hours of Xbox 360 games on Xbox One. Compatibility is important to Xbox, to developers and their games, and our community. Preserving the art form of video games is part of our DNA, which is why Xbox One is the only console designed to play the best games of the past, present and future. We’re excited to continue to deliver on our vision of compatibility and grow our current Backward Compatible library, which includes more than 460 Xbox 360 games, 11 Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 titles, and 13 Original Xbox games.

Experience Xbox Games With Windows Sonic And Dolby Atmos Spatial Sound

Experience Xbox Games With Windows Sonic And Dolby Atmos Spatial Sound
Published by: forahobby on Thursday, November 16, 2017
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

James Shields, Global Product Marketing Manager at Xbox, discusses Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos Spatial Sound.

Experience Xbox Games With Windows Sonic And Dolby Atmos Spatial Sound

This holiday, not only can you play your games on Xbox One X, the world’s most powerful console, but you also have a broad and diverse lineup of new games to experience – including Forza Motorsport 7, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Assassins’s Creed Origins, Super Lucky’s Tale, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. While the power of Xbox One X will immerse you in the beautiful visuals of your games, you can take that immersion even further by simply enabling spatial sound for your headphones or compatible home theater system. By using Windows Sonic or Dolby Atmos spatial sound, you’ll hear your games in a whole new way.

What is Spatial Sound?

Spatial sound is an enhanced audio experience where sounds can flow around, above, and below you in a three-dimensional virtual space that simulates a more realistic environment. Spatial sound provides an immersive atmosphere that traditional channel-based surround sound formats cannot replicate. Imagine playing Gears of War 4 and a Raven helicopter flies overhead. With surround sound, you’d hear the helicopter flying around you, but with spatial sound, you’ll hear it flying directly above you.
