XBOX Series X Review & Unboxing

XBOX Series X Released

This week the XBOX Series X was finally released to the world. Next Gen console gaming has arrived. I have already got myself one which I reviewed here, and I am impressed.

It’s already sold out, so if you’ve missed out on it, you might not see one in 2020. There is the resellers on eBay, with console seemingly going for anything from £800 upwards.

Celebrities Coming To FIFA 21 VOLTA Football

It appears that there’s going to be a title update to FIFA 21, more specifically in VOLTA mode. Celebrities are coming.

Celebs include David Beckham, Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo and Dua Lipa, as well as other stars from the USA.

It kind of feels like a weird move to have what appears to be a random list of celebs to be included in the game. Other ‘non-footballers’ Anthony Joshua and Diplo were already in the VOLTA mode in this years installment.

Apple Announce M1 Chip

Apple Unveil Their New Silicone

Apple announced another event only a short time ago, which took place earlier this week. It was to announce their new silicone, i.e. a new Apple Made CPU they’re calling the M1 Chip.

It was launched alongside a new Macbook Pro, Macbook Air and Mac Mini, all of which will include the M1 chip.

It’s an interesting play from Apple, and not the first time they’ve had a custom chip. They have used what they called the PowerPC chip before moving to the more universal Intel chip, which was made with IBM.

This time they have gone it alone with this chip. It will not only have the main CPU power, but also incorporate graphics power and even RAM. This will result in the Air having 18 hours of web browsing battery life, with the Pro going on for 20 hours.

The new M1 Macs start at £999, you can watch the whole keynote and unveiling at Apple here.
