When will the Xbox series X be available?

A bunch of game journalists and influencers recently got to spend time previewing Psychonauts 2, and the game sounds pretty great. It sounds a lot like the first Psychonauts game, which is exactly what most fans are hoping for from Double Fine.

For Xbox gamers in particular, Psychonauts 2 will be a great August treat. There are two reasons for this, though it depends on your Xbox setup.

First off, this is one of 2021’s new releases that’s headed to Xbox Game Pass at launch. There are quite a few, actually. And while Psychonauts 2 isn’t an Xbox exclusive, being able to play it as part of your Game Pass subscription is a nice perk.

Xbox Series X players also get a nice advantage over other platforms. Well Played’s preview of the game includes its performance specs on different platforms and the Xbox Series X comes out on top:

As you can see, the only way to play this game at 120 fps is on either Xbox Series X or S. The only way to play it at 4k resolution is on the Xbox Series X. PS5 can do 1440p at 6o frames-per-second but can’t hit the 4k mark. At 1440p, the Xbox Series X can play at 120 frames-per-second.

This may not make much difference to you or your enjoyment of the game. It may be an imperceptible difference for a title like this. Then again, maybe the difference will be dramatic. At least Xbox Series X|S players will be able to decide whether to prioritize frames or resolution.

PS5 restock update: waiting rooms for PS5 stock are now live at Very

Techradar 20 July, 2021 - 06:10am

Very has more PS5 in stock

It's unclear how long users will have to wait (though some users are getting through now), but we've already seen that the PS5 disc version console is available on its own, and the add-ons aren't too excessive. You can grab the excellent Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, as well as an additional DualSense controller. This could be a great chance to grab Sony's console before it goes out of stock again, then.

Very's waiting room will automatically refresh every 30 seconds, so keep the tab open for the model you'd like and cross those fingers and toes. 

The PS5 continues to be in extremely high demand in the UK, with stock selling out almost instantly. Stock drops continue to be sporadic across retailers, and it seems like this trend will continue for quite some time.

If you miss out on Very's PS5 stock or simply want to know where to buy PS5 quickly, you'll find all the links to buy PS5 at various retailers below, including the PS5 Digital Edition. Keep checking these links as you never know when more consoles will hit the shelves.
