Here's a fact rarely discussed outside of super nerdy gaming circles. The guts of your video game console actually matter. Once upon a time games were designed to run the same on every console and, in some cases (like the massive multiplayer first person shooter Destiny 2), games are still designed that way. But most games have what is called a "dynamic resolution" with the resolution shifting on a spectrum from as 720p to 4K depending on the scene.

Thus the more powerful the console the higher and more consistent the resolution of the game you are playing will be. Want something close to consistent 4K without spending a grand on a PC gaming rig? You need a powerful console.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Once-struggling tech giant Sony has had a very good 2017, buoyed in large part by the continued success of the Playstation 4, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday. In its most recent quarterly filings, the company reported profits were up approximately 346 per cent relative to the same period last year.

No, not easy easy. The first hint of Sea of Thieves' minimum PC spec has been teased by the devs at Rare, alongside some other nifty goodies for PC and Xbox gamers alike, and it's surprisingly relaxed -- this is not going to be an especially taxing title for your maxed-out gaming rig. You'll even be able to play it on a half-decent modern laptop.

The Xbox One has had more interface updates than I've had hot dinners. And I'm a hungry guy. Every change has refined things further and further, and the Fall Update improves your Xbox home screen even more. It's also the last update before the Xbox One X launches, so it gets existing owners ready just in case they want to upgrade.

Forza 7 opens with a demo that takes you through a sand-swept track in Dubai, with the new Porsche 911 GT2 -- a car announced at E3 -- sliding around from corner to corner under your control. It's fun. It's fun without being too hard, it's fun without being too easy. The driving dynamics are a little bit arcade, a little bit sim. And that's the newest Forza game in a nutshell -- not too cold, not too hot. Just right.

"We've worked on this since 2012, and we finally get to talk about it... I tell people to take a step back and think about this E3: what a moment, you don't release new consoles, the most powerful console ever, that often. We're releasing significant hardware. It's Christmas for me."

Microsoft's corporate vice president of Xbox and Windows gaming, Mike Ybarra, is obviously pretty happy that he gets to talk shop about his baby, Project Scorpio, the new Xbox One X.

We got the chance to get up close and personal with the new Xbox One X. From the outside, there's precisely nothing new to excite you. But inside, if you've got a 4K TV, you should be very, very interested.
