The future of gaming has officially launched… on Samsung’s flagship smartphone, that is.

On Tuesday (Sept.15), Microsoft’s cloud gaming service Xbox Game Pass Ultimate officially exited the beta mode and is now available in the Samsung Galaxy store. The new service allows gamers to play 100 games on either their Samsung Galaxy Note20, Note20 Ultra, or Galaxy Tab S7.

Samsung also announced it will be offering consumers an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Bundle when they purchase a Galaxy Note20 (or qualifying Samsung Galaxy device) as well as the MOGA Bluetooth Controller. Consumers will get a 3-month subscription, but you will have to move fast because Samsung is only offering the bundle for a limited time.

We got a chance to experience Xbox Game Pass Ultimate while it was still in the beta phase, and we must say it worked smoothly on the Galaxy Note20 Ultra.

We even spoke with professional Fortnite streamer, Myth, and he is all-in with the new way to play Triple-A Xbox titles.

“I remember just thinking to myself like, “Is this real?” (laughs). Because I couldn’t, I didn’t, it was hard for me to imagine trying to tell my 10-year-old or 12-year-old self exactly what I’m doing right now. Like I don’t think past me would believe in what exactly is going on. So, that’s how I felt about it, if I had to go back a few years and explain to a younger version of me how you’re able to play games nowadays, I just straight up wouldn’t believe you. I’d be like, “Yeah, okay, bro, cut it out. Like, you’re joking. You’re joking, right? Like, I could play years on my- on my phone, yeah, on my couch, or on my bed, maybe while I’m using the bathroom?”

We share that same excitement with Myth because this will be a gamechanger in the mobile gaming world. Samsung’s partnership with Microsoft gives the Korean tech company a clear advantage in that department over Apple, which only has Apple Arcade to offer to iPhone owners.

HHW Gaming: EA Announces ‘UFC 4’ Will Be Superman Punching Its Way Onto PS4 & Xbox One In August

You won’t need to fly to “fight island” to get in on this UFC action.

EA literally announced UFC 4 hours ahead of UFC’s biggest pandemic pay-per-view, UFC 251 taking place Sunday morning (Saturday in the states) on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates which has been dubbed “fight island.” The cover of the game features current UFC middleweight champion Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya and Welterweight contender Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal who happens to be on the UFC 251’s card. Masvidal was a late sub for Gilbert Burns after he tested positive for COVID-19.

So what’s new in UFC 4? Well, fans of the mixed-martial-arts game franchise will be happy to learn one the game’s biggest problems have been fixed. Players have complained constantly that the control schemes in UFC were “too complicated” especially when it comes to grappling and executing submissions. In UFC 4 to pull off basic and quick strikes all you have to do now is tap a button.  For more powerful and “flashy” strikes just simply hold down the assigned button to pull off the desired attack. You can also now enter a grapple and attempt takedowns by using buttons instead of the analog sticks as in previous UFC titles.

EA Vancouver is also introducing ‘Integrated Real Player Motion Technology’ for takedowns and clinch submissions that will allow for fluid animations for transitions and movements that will make things easier for players. As far as grappling controls, there is a new left-stick scheme that makes the game enjoyable for newcomers to the franchise. Players can either simply push up to get up, push left to begin a submission, and right to mount your opponent deliver devastating blows.

That’s not all. The popular Career Mode returns with some upgrades, of course. UFC recognized that fans loved the mode, so in this year’s installment, players will be instantly launched into their virtual careers partaking in 4 amateur fights serving as an “onboarding experience” introducing players to the four fighting styles boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and jujitsu. Like in UFC 3, training is still vital in building up your created character. Gone are the mini-games, now you can earn points to boost your fighter’s attributes by just simply fighting and sparring. Also, if you have a particular move you favor, the more you use it, the better it becomes.

You will also now have the ability to decline fights, which do come with consequences in your career, so choose wisely.  There is now a full World Fighting Alliance minor league, which you can opt to fight in as long as you want before you decide to make that leap to the UFC.

Other new features include fighting in Backyard and Kumite environments, bonus fighters, heavyweight champion boxers Tyson Fury, and Anthony Joshua come as a pre-order bonus. Martial Arts legend Bruce Lee also returns in UFC 4.

UFC 4 arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Friday, August 14, no word if the game will be able to be upgraded to PS5 and Xbox Series X. You can watch the launch trailer below.

Sony You Have 24 Hours To Respond: Microsoft Shares New Specs On The Xbox Series X

The Xbox Series X Has 12 Teraflops & A New "Quick Resume" Feature

Source: Microsoft / Xbox Series X

Sony is currently pulling out of conventions left and right and not saying much about the PS5. Microsoft is doing the exact opposite. Today (Feb.24), the company revealed even more technical specs about its next-generation console, the Xbox Series X.

Phil Spencer spilled some serious nerd tea about the Xbox Series X.

We already knew the console would be more powerful compared to the Xbox One X  and will have backwards compatibility that will support games going all the way back to the original Xbox. According to the blog post, the console will have 12 teraflops of GPU power, sports hardware-accelerated raytracing, run at 120 frames per second, and supports quick-resume for multiple games at the same time.

According to the Xbox boss, the new console will focus on several key themes: instant immersion, game compatibility, and power & speed. In the power department, Spencer details the Xbox Series X’s new custom AMD processor that is fully capable of 12 teraflops of GPU performance will allow for higher framerates and much “larger, more sophisticated game worlds.” He also promised “an immersive experience unlike anything seen in console gaming.” On top of that, variable rate shading will allow developers to “more efficiently utilize the full power of the Xbox Series X.This will allow for “more stable frame rates and higher resolution, with no impact on the final image quality.”

One eyebrow-raising detail is instant immersion. With the Xbox Series X switching from hard disc drives to a solid-state drive (SSD), load times should be improved. The new console will also have a new feature called Quick Resume that will allow players to re-enter a game with little to no wait times. As stated above, the console will support 120 frames per second, and controls will be “even more precise and responsive,” thanks to Dynamic Latency Input.

The Xbox Series X will also have HDMI 2.1 Innovation. Spencer revealed that Microsoft has partnered up with the HDMI forum and TV manufacturers to give players the best gaming experience possible with new features like Auto Low Latency (ALLM) and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR). While ALLM allows both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X to automatically adjust the display to its lowest latency mode. VRR will enable the console to  synchronize the game’s frame rate with the display’s refresh rate, which allows for “maintaining smooth visuals without tearing.”  Spencer writes these features will ensure “minimal lag” as well as ” the most responsive gaming experience.”

Last but certainly not least, there is Smart Delivery. Spencer explains it will give gamers the assurance that when they purchase a game once, no matter what console you’re playing on, you will be getting “the right version.” Spencer adds they will be making the commitment to ensure to use Smart Delivery on all exclusive Xbox Game Studios titles, including Halo Infinite. Developers will be able to choose to use it for titles that will launch on Xbox One first and arriving on Xbox Series X later.

So how does that stack up against the PS5? Well, according to a leak, the PS5 will reach 9.2 teraflops compared to Xbox Series X’s 12. PlayStation 5 is also rumored to have a new “Remastering Engine” that will rival the Xbox Series X. So things are sounding pretty even, as far as technical specs. The one department Sony does seem to still have the upper hand is exclusive games. It has been reported that at launch that the Xbox Series X will not have any first-party games ready and will have owners of the console waiting for up to a year according to a Microsoft exec.

Still, it’s time for Sony to show its hand now and give us some more details on the PS5.

News in Brief: Report: More U.S. Families Living With Multiple Generations Of Xbox Under One Roof

WASHINGTON—Calling the trend a reflection of the nation’s changing social and economic landscape, a report released Friday by the Pew Research Center confirmed that more U.S. families are living with multiple generations of Xbox under one roof. “According to our survey data, over the past decade we have seen a dramatic rise in the number of American households that contain two or even three generations of consoles,” said the report’s author, Sean Corfield, adding that, in many cases, citizens reported that their Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One all share the same room. “The vast majority of Americans we surveyed described feeling an obligation to continue caring for their older consoles as they age, even as they continue to welcome new generations into their homes. At the same time, more Americans are also finding themselves trying to free space in their basement after their Xbox 360 …

I’m With Stupid: The Xtreme Danger of Giving an Xbox for Xmas

I find myself in sort of an interesting spot with this week’s column. You see, I’m writing this the day before Christmas, but it won’t be published until the day after Christmas. Thus, I’m going to have to predict how Christmas is going to go around my house this year rather than telling you how it went.

So here goes:

First, I predict my son’s head will explode when he sees one of his presents. Months ago, he decided he wanted an Xbox to play Minecraft, and somehow that morphed into him talking about the Xbox he was going to get. I was quick to remind him that he might not get an Xbox, but it turns out I was wrong.

Despite the questionable logic of giving a seven-year-old a video-game system, Santa is bringing my son an Xbox. This is troubling on many, many levels. First, there is the very real possibility that my son’s head will, indeed, explode. Medically, I’m not sure how this could work, but if it can, this will be the time it does.

More importantly though, my son is already a hopeless Minecraft junky. (If you don’t know what Minecraft is, you obviously don’t have a seven-year-old son.) He spends countless hours building entire worlds on my iPad, which is bad enough, but what’s even worse is that he’s discovered Stampy Cat’s videos and now watches them religiously.

If you don’t know who Stampy Cat is (and really, why would you?), he’s an English guy who posts videos of himself talking about and playing Minecraft on YouTube. To you and me, this might seem like the stupidest thing in the world, but to kids, it’s like visual crack, so much so that all of Stampy Cat’s incredibly annoying videos get millions of views.

The result of all this is that if, somehow, my son’s head doesn’t erupt, between Minecraft and Stampy Cat he will probably end up being sucked into our TV like the little girl in Poltergeist. The difference is that he won’t make any effort to get out. Even if that doesn’t happen, it’s almost a given that his butt will become fused to our living room floor and we will be unable to move him away from his wide-eyed position four inches from the TV screen.

The real trouble with my son getting an Xbox, however, is that my son’s father, who definitely doesn’t need more ways to waste time, will have to help his son get started setting up and playing games. I think we can all guess what that’s going to lead to. I can already see myself getting sucked into some pointless game for days on end. If you don’t hear from me for, oh, the next 16 months or so, please come steal my son’s Xbox and save me.

I’m going to assume I won’t become addicted to Minecraft, as I’ve so far resisted all my son’s efforts to get me to play it, but the Xbox comes with a game called Assassin’s Creed that has, according to one website, “hundreds of hours of content.” I can only pray that it’s boring or complicated enough that I won’t want to play it or won’t be able to figure out how it’s played.

Anyway, on to my other predictions. I predict that someone will give me a button-down shirt that I will wear once and then never wear again after the first washing shrinks the sleeves down to the point where they look ridiculous.

As you can probably tell, I’m basing this prediction on past experiences, having been through this many times before. I don’t know what kind of short-armed mutants shirt manufacturers make their wares for, but they seem incapable of getting the sleeve-to-shirt-size ratio even vaguely correct.

My final prediction, the one I feel the most certain about, is that my wife will be disappointed in the gifts she receives from her husband. You might wonder why, if I know this ahead of time, I don’t take steps to remedy the situation. The answer is because I’m afflicted with stupid. Plus, like an idiot, I forgot to ask her what she wants.

Actually, as it turns out, I have one more prediction. I predict that despite all the potential pitfalls inherent in this year’s Christmas gifts, my wife, son and I will all have a wonderful holiday season. I sincerely hope the same prediction holds true for you and your family.

Merry belated Christmas!
