It has been a big week for Xbox, as a former PlayStation exclusive is finally making its way to Xbox.

Outriders also released this way on Game Pass and we're having so much fun with it.

Here is all the news you need to know today.


MLB: The Show 21 Coming To Xbox Game Pass

MLB: The Show, a game that has been PlayStation exclusive since the series began in 2006, is finally coming to Xbox and will also be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one.

It was announced earlier this week that MLB: The Show 21 will be launching on Xbox Game Pass on April 20th, alongside the PS4 and PS5 and will also be fully cross-platform with Sony consoles.

Xbox One and Series X|S owners will be able to play the Standard Edition of the game as part of their Game Pass subscription on April 20th, while PlayStation 4 and 5 players will need to purchase the game as normal.


This is huge news for Microsoft, being a PlayStation property, which could be a sign that both companies are willing to work together to give gamers the best experience possible.

It has been long debated as to whether future Bethesda titles will come to PlayStation after Microsoft acquired the company earlier this year.

But maybe this gives PlayStation fans a glimmer of hope that games such as The Elder Scrolls 6 could come to Sony in the future.

Check out the trailer for MLB: The Show 21 below, it is crazy to see the Xbox logo followed by the PlayStation logo in the same trailer.


Xbox Series S Stock

While many of us tend to look towards GAME, Amazon, Argos, Smyths etc for the latest stock, there are some companies out there that actually sell consoles and other hardware that most people don't pay attention to, including BT.

BT do sell gaming consoles, as well as games and PC hardware, but most people are unaware of this.

Looking at BT's shop, at the time of writing there are over 50 Xbox Series S console in stock.

The console retails for the standard £249.99 and comes with the new Series controller, which is an improved version of the previous Xbox One controller.


One thing to note is that the Xbox Series S is weaker than its Series X counterpart, targeting 1080p and 1440p rather than 4K and is also digital-only, but it is still an impressive console for the price.

With Xbox Game Pass there are plenty of games to choose from, over 400 in fact, as well as being able to purchase games from the Xbox Store.

The Series S only has 512GB of storage so grabbing a storage expansion is crucial for the console.

As a sole console, we would probably suggest waiting for the Series X to come back in stock, but this would make be a great choice to sit alongside a PlayStation 5 in anyone's TV unit.
