At the tail end of 2019, Microsoft surprised everyone with the reveal of the Xbox Series X at the Video Game Awards. The event provided us our first look at the next-gen machine, and it’s unlike any Xbox prior.
We’re quickly approaching the usual time of the year, and right on cue, the rumor mill is buzzing. This time, the spotlight shines on Microsoft and its potential offerings set to debut at this year’s E3.
With the ninth generation of consoles right around the corner, the rumor mill is working overtime. A new patent filed by Sony hints at the PlayStation 5 being backwards compatible with the current PS4.
With the 2018 E3 show over and done with, the rumor mill is now back up and running. While Sony confirmed it wouldn’t be talking PS5 at the show, the latest rumors focus on it anyway. Forbes now has a bit more insight into the upcoming PlayStation 5.
Fiat Chrysler axed the Viper program last year, marking the end of a 25-year history. Now, according to Car and Driver, the Viper is poised to make a comeback in 2020 or 2021 — just with a few key differences.
Back in January, we told you about rumors saying that Forza Horizon 4 would take to the streets of Japan.

The seventh generation of video game consoles has been an unprecedented one. While not an entirely new concept, this generation introduced refreshed consoles in the form of the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.
The gaming community has had to acclimate to a number of changes this console generation, chief among them being the adoption of mid-cycle hardware refreshes in the form of the PS4 Pro and the yet-to-be-released (and officially named) Project Scorpio. If that weren’t enough, one analyst speculates the next generation could be right around the corner.
New patents filed by Microsoft seem to indicate that the much-rumored hardware revisions for Xbox could become a reality, with signs pointing toward a slimmer model and possibly an upgraded model. Picked up by NeoGAF user Mike R, the first patent known as ‘Part 1683’ has strong ties to the existing Xbox One’s WLAN Module filings that were registered when the first console was unveiled. These ties are a user manual of the exact same size and the designated model number of “1525” indicates a user manual that is not yet available – practically guaranteeing some sort of new Xbox model will be on the way very soon. Crucially to speculation, the NDA for this patent officially expires on the 25th of June – Just after E3 closes its doors.
