Gwent: The Witcher Card Game-themed Xbox One up for grabs from Xbox UK

13 Mar

Create and share your own Gwent: The Witcher Card Game wild card for a chance to win.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is still in beta, but CD Projekt Red and Xbox UK are running a community event right now that’ll give you the chance to win a beta code and this custom Gwent-themed Xbox One console.

All you have to do is create your own wild card using a photo of your choice, and answer a few questions pertaining to what kind of animal you’d be, or where you’d want to live. Real soul searching stuff.

Then head over to the Xbox UK Facebook page and post a picture of your personalised card along with the hashtag #BecomeTheWildcard for a chance to win.

I haven’t quite made up my mind as to whether I think the console is an abomination or the perfect box for The Witcher fans. What do you think of it?

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is in closed beta, with the open beta coming soon. It’ll reset everyone’s progress to level the playing field, so don’t be daunted about giving it a whirl.

The game is playable on PC and Xbox One with a PS4 version on the way, but a date has yet to be confirmed.

Project Scorpio to have an internal power supply, support 4K 60fps game capture – report

13 Mar

Project Scorpio will seemingly continue the trend of internal PSUs in Microsoft consoles.

xbox project scorpio

Project Scorpio, the codename of the Xbox One mid-generation refresh, is reportedly going to have a similar design to the Xbox One S, particularly when it comes to its power supply unit (PSU) design.

According to Windows Central‘s sources, much like the Xbox One S, Scorpio will also have an internal PSU. All Xbox consoles, with the exception of the One S, came with an external PSU – usually referred to as a power brick.

By separating the power supply from the console, Microsoft was able to achieve better airflow, until Xbox One S bucked the trend. Many believed Scorpio, being a more powerful console, would bring back the power brick, but that may not end up being the case.

The site’s report also mentions support for HEVC and VP9 codecs. The former in particular is the codec the console will be using to encode 4K 60fps Game DVR videos. If this proves to be true, it will be one step above what PS4 Pro can offer in terms of game capture, which currently caps at 1080p 60fps.

Xbox One consoles can only manage 720p 30fps Game DVR captures, making the upgrade all the more impressive.

We expect to hear more about Scorpio during Microsoft’s E3 2017 showcase, which is taking place earlier than usual this year.
