Xbox One X and Xbox One S will soon support AMD FreeSync displays

Microsoft is adding support for AMD’s FreeSync displays to its Xbox One X and Xbox One S consoles soon. The upcoming Xbox spring update already includes 1440p support on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X for monitors, but the addition of FreeSync will allow compatible displays to sync refresh rates with Microsoft’s consoles. FreeSync, like Nvidia’s G-Sync, helps remove tearing or stuttering usually associated with gaming on monitors, as the technology syncs refresh rates to ensure games run smooth. FreeSync and G-Sync are widely used on PC gaming systems and monitors, so the addition of 1440p resolution and FreeSync will appeal to Xbox owners who also have a gaming display. Alongside the FreeSync addition, Microsoft is also planning to… Read the full article…

Bluepoint Games’ next project is a remake, but one even greater in scope than its Shadow of the Colossus remake for PS4. When asked by Digital Foundry (via Eurogamer) if the studio’s next project would be an original title, Bluepoint president Marco Thrush replied, “Well, we could but we’re doing another remake.” While Thrush remained tight-lipped on what the next remake might be, he did speak in broad terms about what’s next for Bluepoint. “So now our next step is, let’s improve the art pipeline, let’s improve the engine, let’s improve workflow for artists, let’s grow on the art side some more to handle our next project because it’s a bit bigger,” he said.

Venue changes, methodologies, new tactics or ideas to trial, all of these come with significant risks to not only the enjoyment of your guests, but the perception, reputation and overall survival of your event-as-brand. This week, for want of any better ideas, I’m going to waffle on about the sorts of choices laid before us by circumstance, and the struggle to determine the best path based on a number of known factors (and possible outcomes) alongside a similar number of unknown factors (and potential side-effects). We use a Google Form/Spreadsheet combo to collect & collate feedback about event satisfaction, opinions about the future, and general comments. It’s really helpful, but it’s only part of the puzzle you’re assembling in this role. The first thing we’re facing right now Read the full article…
