Tencent Facial Recognition, Xbox Series X AI Upscaling, Xbox Game Pass New Games | Gaming News






Introduction

Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of the daily gaming news. Here I'll be discussing all the latest goings-on in the gaming industry, from new releases to game announcements and everything in between. So without further ado, let's get started!

Xbox Series X AI Upscaling

Microsoft is bringing in AI upscaling to the Xbox Series X, kind of like DLSS and equivalent technology, so that games will look even prettier. So we'll see when more details of that emerge. Digital Foundry do really good, basically, reviews of tech and how games work, framerates and textures and so on. Or if there's anything interesting on there, I would say check out Digital Foundry.

Xbox Game Pass New Games

The next bit of news is that Microsoft also has announced more games coming to Xbox Game Pass. So if you don't know Xbox Game Pass, is a monthly subscription where you can basically play and download a whole library of games up to 100 while your subscription is still active. And there also is complemented with xCloud if you're an Ultimate subscriber, which is basically the highest level where you can also stream the games and someone on your PC even. And that's what's nice about Xbox Ultimate is that you can do on PC and console. So it's nice that they're always expanding it. And they're also making it that a lot of the new game releases will be released day one onto Xbox Game Pass. So I would say that PlayStation should really think they probably are thinking of an equivalent Xbox Game Pass, because I think like I personally have it. I don't even have an Xbox.

Tencent Facial Recognition

And then the last bit of news for today is Tencent, who is a publisher behind such games as PUBG Mobile has now implemented face recognition technology in China, which will prevent children from playing the games late at night, basically. So it's sort of like a really advanced parental control. So I don't know if there's going to be any issues about Privacy and so on in the West, but basically know that these publishers are making such technology, which some people might view favorably. Just in case I didn't know already, I'm Mithrie. My sister bought a label maker, so she just wanted to make sure that I knew that I was Mithrie.
