Sony launches Showmax application and Microsoft launches list of enhanced games for Xbox One X

Welcome all, the week is almost over. Let look at news that caught our attention particularly from Xbox and Sony PlayStation 4 alike.

Sony has announced its latest app in the form of Showmax. Showmax is similar to Netflix offering a wide variety of series and movies. For R 99 a month not only is it affordable but tech-savvy. Showmax app is easy to use and boast cleaver setting. One of these settings is the ability to limit the data used. This results in lower video quality but at least you pocket looks better.

With the international launch of Xbox One X in a couple of days away it is great to see what more and more titles are getting the enhancement. Some of the heavyweight titles include Gears Of War 4, Halo 5 and Doom. New games like Forza Motorsport 7, Assassins Creed Origins and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus have also benefited from updates. South Africans will have to wait until the December before sampling it.
