Anonymous Source at Microsoft leaks Scorpio Graphical Slides Showing Retail vs. Devkit Features

Logic-SunRise has obtained via a anonymous contact at Microsoft some new info regarding the Project Scorpio, the Next Xbox.
What these three slides show is mainly already know in regard to the Devkit, but its brings up some questions regarding the final Retail Memory, it was mentioned before the Devkit has 24 gigabytes of GDDR5 RAM, and the Retail would have 12 gigabytes.

But in the diagrams below, it is shown that the Devkit only has 20gb, and the Retail only has 8gb same as the current Xbox model, speculation is that the 'extra 4gb' is not shown because its an 'permanent module', which the Devkit slide shows as an 'NVMeSSD', but still its totally missing on Retail slide, so either this leak is from an earlier prototype design and not final, or infact Retail only has 8gb....

Our very own @JHardin1112 is back with another Exclusive MaxConsole Game Review for you all to enjoy reading!

Ah!!! Another year, another entry in Rebellion’s excellent Sniper Elite series!

If you’re looking for a top-notch sniping experience that lets you strategically obliterate Nazi’s in the most graphic and horrific way possible (testicle shot anyone?!), then look no further. Sniper Elite 4 gives you that and more in spades.

Final_1.jpg

Set in 1943, amidst the conflict of WWII, in the beautiful, but warn torn country of Italy, players assume the role of the elite OSS sniper, Karl Fairburne, as he is sent across the country in order track down and ultimately put an end to the Nazi’s use of their secret weapon against the Allies - a radio controlled missile.

CLICK!

A new Nintendo Switch bug seems to have emerged over the weekend, causing consoles to autonomously take screenshots, seemingly at random, without the user having pressed the screenshot button.
Users are reporting their MicroSD card is filling up with random screenshots during Switch gameplay, and it seems to be related to after they installed Minecraft, but no confirmation of this new glitch bug has been announced by either Nintendo or Microsoft.

HZD_PS4_PRO.jpg
It’s been a little over six months since Sony launched the PlayStation 4 Pro console.

While the hardware has been selling well enough according to Sony, PS4 Pro support is slowly growing up to be a disappointment within the core community, so much that many are now wondering whether the console is actually worth the higher price.
It seems the PlayStation 4 Pro console is not getting the support it really needs from the developers of the games currently out for the PS4, with alot of them not having 'patches' at all, and with the ones that do, not offering much in the way of improving the graphics.

Issues when Switching between DOCKing and UNDOCKing is the main problem!

Minecraft on Switch isn’t constrained to 720p because of the console’s power, says Microsoft
It seems developers of Minecraft ran into a problem with the Switch switching between portable 720p and docked 1080p modes, so they decided to just limit it to 720p instead of having issues with the Switching between mobile handheld and console at home modes.
So it seems getting the game to run at 1080p is a possibility then, but something Microsoft didn't want to resolve, or maybe it will require a patch or firmware update from Nintendo themselves, before we will...
