Sony has dominated the conversation surrounding next-generation gaming for quite a while now. The company has generated a lot of hype for the upcoming PlayStation 5 series. Now, Microsoft is upping the ante.

According to a leaked document reported by The Verge, Microsoft is planning a second console in the upcoming Xbox Series X. Apart from the next-generation specs of the regular variant, the second device — codenamed Lockhart — will come with lesser specs, hinting at a Lite version of the Xbox Series X.

The leaked document details a few hardware specifications for the new device. Instead of the regular’s 13.5GB of memory, the budget-friendly version has only 7.5GB of RAM. Further, it will have a lesser CPU and GPU, which performs at just four teraflops. Finally, the console might come without a disk drive, similar to the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition.

Of course, Microsoft hasn’t announced or hinted at the upcoming device. If the Lockhart makes it to production, it will make for an interesting addition in the upcoming console wars. While the regular variants will duke it out, the “lighter” versions might find themselves in a war of which can entice the most people with competitive pricing.

Both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X are still expected to launch later this year, just in time for the holidays.

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
