ICXM will hopefully be around for a long time. We love our work and we love our readers but we can't keep writing on our own. Servers cost money, sometimes the games cost money, the hardware most definitely costs money. The site as it is now does not bring in the income that many of you online might think with that all-important advertisements.
We recently went through the reveal trailer for Project Scorpio and came up with what we thought was represented in the video. While it may not have been what people expected, we think it's an accurate representation of the prototype teased in the trailer. Well, today we're going to do the same for the Surface Phone.
Nintendo finally announced their answer to the ongoing fierce battle between Microsoft and Sony, with a two-in-one console that is simultaneously a handheld and a home console. While the concept is unique, it might learn a thing or two from the mistakes Microsoft made with the Xbox One reveal.
Ever since Xbox Scorpio was revealed, we don't know what the console looks like. The only images we've received were silhouettes in the reveal trailer. If we make the assumption that what was shown during the trailer was similar to the final product, or at least a prototype, we may be able to determine what the design entails.
With the recent cancellation of Scalebound by the Xbox team, gamers, and the media they cling to, have started the usual predictable flood of anguish over the so-called death of Xbox they've been predicting for the last four years.
Microsoft just announced that Scalebound has been cancelled. While many media outlets are shocked over this, I'm really not surprised. We didn't have an update on the game for months and it also wasn't listed in a recent press release which Microsoft put out confirming which games were coming in 2017.
Recently Sony announced that they managed to sell 53 million PlayStation consoles, with around six million of those being sold in the last holiday quarter. However, their biggest exclusive only managed to sell around eight million copies, most of which were included in the biggest bundle of the year.
Update: BioWare confirmed the game would be playable early for EA Access members.
After the latest round of confusion over whether certain EA games will be available on EA Access, it seems that the mystery behind Mass Effect: Andromeda has been cleared. According to an advertisement spotted by ThisGenGaming, it looks like Mass Effect: Andromeda will be available early on Xbox One.
No matter how you feel about 2016, it has definitely been a great year for games. Xbox continued to improve both its software and sales, the reveal of Project Scorpio kickstarted the 4K HDR era and of course, dozens of amazing games hit Microsoft platforms.
