Throughout the past 15 years the Xbox has been through so many radical changes that it now barely resembles the original console that was released way back in 2000. Similarly, even when we go back to 2005 to the launch date of the Xbox 360, we can see that dramatic changes have occurred there too. Firstly, the entire console’s operating system was revamped in 2008 so that gamers now didn’t have to look at the ugly user interface that was in place prior to that date. Similarly, the games have dramatically increased in quality too, back in 2005 we didn’t have many of the big names that we have grown used to now. However times change and money is spent on bigger and better developments. This is seen massively today with the Xbox One and in the future for the Xbox Two as well. Just a quick side note on that point, what does everybody think that the next Xbox will be called, I’m completely unsure on this point but I know that they’re going (Microsoft) to try and be as creative as possible in this respect. I think that there’s a lot of scope for them to try something completely new, I doubt that they will ever branch away from the original ‘Xbox’ branding, however it wouldn’t be completely outrageous if they did – would it now? Do let me know your thoughts on the above matter, I feel like there needs to be some changes in the gaming console landscape and it would be good to see new additions, similar to what Valve have been trying to do with their gaming system that seems to have ground to a halt in recent times.
When we take a look at the Xbox one, it is easy to see that it has hugely greater aspirations to become something that no console ever has been before. A truly worldwide entertainment system that is not solely for playing video games, but also as a home entertainment system too – Microsoft have been valiantly attempting to expand their revenue streams as much as possible but they haven’t really seen too much progress in recent years. In actual fact, there is a considerable number of people that are simply buying laptops or computers to play their video games on in recent years as having a desktop computer becomes increasingly popular. I think that this also says a lot about our community and indeed society altogether – it certainly is becoming more and more acceptable to stay inside and play video games online with your friends, as opposed to going out with them to have fun. This is something that retro gamers have been aspiring to achieve over the years and to be honest I did not really see it happening until the past three or four years myself. Let us see what the future holds, who knows what Microsoft have planned for us but I’m sure it is going to be revolutionary and truly exciting too. Fingers crossed for something really special this time around folks.
Today I wanted to write a little post about something that I spend a lot of my free time doing, something that has been a hobby of mine since I was around 8 years old. I remember the good old days of having a dial up modem, slowly connecting to the internet and taking whole minutes to connect to the Yahoo Games website where I could play a whole host of different browser based competitive games. This was the gaming community for me back in the day, there were no online consoles, if you wanted to play with people you had to invite them round to your house or play terribly developed games on websites like Yahoo. This has long since changed with the release of the Wii, Xbox One and also the PS4 too. However it’s something that I spend a long time thinking about, we have come so far in such a small period of time, literally 10 years ago it wasn’t possible to do anything that we can do now – it does make me wonder, what does the future hold for us. If we see the same scale of uplift in game quality then I don’t think that I will ever have a logical reason to leave the house, particular as we saw in my earlier post about virtual reality.
In all honesty, after I learnt how to jailbreak Xbox One consoles on Jail-Breaks I was downloading all of the latest games completely free online. This website is actually awesome though to be honest, I’ve never seen such a comprehensive guide of how to do all of these cool things on the internet and they really have enabled me to get so much free stuff that I’d have to sell my house to even try to afford any of it. It truly is a wonderful site, check it out here.
I think that too many people are scared of doing damage to their consoles, but let me tell you this before you get too worried about the whole concept, the Xbox One is a very hardy console indeed and it takes an awful lot to do something wrong and damage it. Don’t get too concerned about anything like that, just go ahead and do it and you will reap the rewards soon enough. I think that in the future it’s going to be really hard for anyone to actually jailbreak consoles, but for now you should all be taking full advantage of it – particularly with the Xbox One – it’s so easy and should be done by absolutely everybody. The best benefits that you can get from doing so is obviously free games and widespread customization of the console, but there’s a whole host of other reasons for why you may want to consider it too – just do some reading online and you’ll be convinced in no time.
I’m just here today to write a quick post following up on my previous wedding post. Well, firstly Jenna wasn’t too impressed when she found out that I’d got a whole load of new Xbox One games together instead of starting to make moves and begin planning my wedding. We’ve managed to push the date back a little bit, the initial plan was to have it in June, but now we’re going to go for July instead. I think this is for the best, I’ve just got so much work to do with this new website and I’m not sure where I’m going to find the time to get it all done really. Obviously my gaming has to come first, right?
If you’re a keen film geek and love to write, then why not chip in and help us on our journey. We are always looking for new blood and would love to meet you – come and say hello today! Thank you for visiting our website, please continue to check back in the future to see more film reviews and an increased number of film critics joining our ranks too. Our website contains reviews of all of our favorite films, interviews with some of the small time and big time actors in the scene and occasionally a director or two as well.
Thank you for visiting our website, we are extremely proud to finally be announced as a limited film company and will be providing detailed reviews for all of our fans in the form of guest posts, actual articles and genuine interviews from a wide range of different people across the industry. I hope that everyone finds our new site extremely interesting and we will be trying to get as much content out to you – the people – as feasibly possible. I’ve actually been writing articles for the new site over the past four to five weeks, I’m going to continue to do this until we get some form of recognition from the people who count. I don’t know how long that this is likely to take, but I’m hoping it will happen sooner rather than later. One thing to note is that the film or movie industry is harder to crack than any other industry really – this is something that people need to consider when they do decide to enter this niche, however it’s not something that is regularly done to be honest. I’ve been working alongside my friend Tom Malone from movie biz industries and will be working with him on a large number of products and indeed projects for the following two weeks. We’re hoping to try to get some attention from some big movie studios but we’re not sure how difficult this is going to be given our relatively small budget. In the meantime we’ve both been playing Xbox One review based games.
