Xbox One is a line of eighth generation home video game consoles developed by Microsoft. Announced in May 2013, it is the successor to Xbox 360 and the third console in the Xbox family. It was first released in North America, parts of Europe, Australia, and South America in November 2013, and in Japan, China, and other European countries in September 2014. It is the first Xbox game console to be released in China, specifically in the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone. Microsoft marketed the device as an “all-in-one entertainment system”, hence the name ‘Xbox One. The Xbox One line mainly competes against consoles such as Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U and Switch.
Playstation won the month fairly handily but neither Xbox nor Playstation really wowed me with their free games.
Our game of the week is Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout which edges out Disgaea 4 Complete+ with slightly more colorful graphics and the fact it is new material.
