Xbox Cloud Gaming Comes to Amazon Fire TV

Published

on

If you have the Fire TV Stick 4K Max (2023) or Fire TV Stick 4K (2023) streaming dongle then you also have a gaming device.

From this month (July 2024) Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be able to access and play hundreds of cloud-enabled games directly through the Xbox Fire TV app. This will be a similar experience to the Samsung Xbox cloud interface introduced a couple years ago. I’ve played Xbox games on several Samsung TVs and it’s excellent.

If you’re already an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, you’ll have instant access to stream and play any of the hundreds of cloud-enabled titles in the Game Pass Ultimate library. If you’re not a member, you can sign up via the app. ‘Fortnite’ offers a free trial period without membership.

Once the Xbox app is installed, just sign into your Microsoft account and connect a compatible Bluetooth controller. You can use Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless Controller, Xbox Adaptive Controller, PlayStation’s DualSense or DualShock 4 controllers.

Some of the top titles you can get started with straight away are Starfield, Fallout 4 and Forza Horizon 5.

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

Fire TV Stick 4K: A$79

Fire TV Stick 4K Max: A$119

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription: Starts from A$18.95/month (available on Fire TV Stick July 2024)

Win an Xbox Good Enough to Eat

Published

on

Xbox and Arnott’s are at it again.

They’ve followed up their collaboration on a limited-edition Chicken Crimpy Xbox Series S Console with another garish combo. But this time I’m on board because you won’t find a bigger fan of Barbecue Shapes than me.

Say hello to the brand-new, limited-edition Barbecue Shapes Xbox Series X Console.

There are only 10 limited-edition Barbecue Shapes Xbox Series X Consoles available so you’ll certainly stand out from the crowd if you win one. To have a chance at winning one of these savoury consoles, buy any pack of Shapes from Woolworths.

I reckon having one of these in front of your TV will definitely make you want to eat box after box of Barbecue Shapes. Is that the plan?

I spotted one of the previous models on ebay for $4,000 so it might be a good idea to keep it boxed up for a while.

If you miss out on the big prize don’t worry, because from today consumers will have the opportunity to win an Xbox Series X Console every single day, by purchasing any pack of their favourite Shapes flavour from Coles, Woolworths and independent retailers.

There will also be 30,000 Xbox Game Pass prizes up for grabs during the promotion period from today to May 12 2024.

Image Matrix Tech on Sky News: Film is King – Oppenheimer IMAX 70mm

Published

on

In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert) we explained the different formats available to view Christopher Nolan’s epic film ‘Oppenheimer’.

In the age of digital video and massive smart TVs .. the traditional film experience is getting harder to find but Oppenheimer is showing film is still the king. 

People are flying to Melbourne from all over the country and overseas just to see it in IMAX 70mm.  There are only 30 theatres in the world showing this format and Australia has one of them.

Oppenheimer, the story of the man who led the team that created first atom bomb, was shot in IMAX 70/65mm, including black and white, a large format film invented for this movie. 

I’ve seen it in 70mm projection and while magnificent (I prefer the widescreen look) it’s not the same as IMAX 70mm as we explain in the segment.

IMAX 70mm runs through the camera/projector horizontally while 70mm or 35mm film runs through the projector vertically. As a result, you can fit three 70mm film frames into one IMAX 70mm frame. IMAX 70mm is also known as IMAX 1570 film. The 15 in 1570 relates to the perforations along the 70mm frame.

If you can’t see it in IMAX 70mm (it might take a month) don’t be too concerned. You will see the benefits of the original negative being shot in IMAX because all smaller versions of the film will look better. When a film is shot in higher resolution then watched in a lower resolution it will be sharper and more brilliant thanks to the quality and size of the original.  

NEW PHONE IN AUSTRALIA THAT’S SO POWERFUL IT COMES WITH A FAN

The ROG (ASUS Republic of Gamers) Phone 7 Ultimate is insanely powerful and fun. It is one of the most powerful phones ever made and it’s now available in Australia.

It’s targeted at gamers but it’s also a great phone for normal use. There are two models but the Ultimate is what we’re showing in this segment.

It has a massive battery – 6000 mAh – a couple of USB ports and 16GB of RAM.

The 165 Hz Samsung AMOLED display’s peak brightness has significantly increased compared to the previous model. The brightness is now up to 1,500 nits for easier viewing outside. It also has 720 Hz touch-sampling rate and ultrasonic buttons for rapid-fire shooting.

Keeping the phone cool while gaming is key so ASUS has included an AeroActive Portal. The air inlet activates automatically when the AeroActive Cooler is attached, directing a constant flow of cool air from the cooler onto the cooling fins of the vapour chamber. 

When the AeroActive Portal is activated, the phone’s thermal efficiency can increase by up to 20%.

It also delivers 2.1-channel sound when the new AeroActive Cooler 7 accessory is attached, which houses a powerful subwoofer.

THE BLUETOOTH HEADSET THAT’S IDEAL FOR HYBRID WORK

If you’re always doing Teams or Zoom meetings in the office and on the road all day – then the Jabra Evolve2 65 Flex could be the headset for you.

It’s the most portable professional headset with unique fold and-go design paired with best-in-class Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation.

It’s extremely comfortable – soft on your ears for people using headsets all day. The flexible ear cups rotate to move whenever you do. 

Its 360° busylight glows red, sending out an easy-to-see “STOP” sign to anyone around you.

Evolve2 65 Flex is certified for all leading virtual meeting platforms – including Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

Plug-and-play setup is easy and with Dual connectivity letting you switch between devices, it’s easy to jump from listening to music on your phone to taking an incoming video call on your laptop without missing a beat.

Wireless range is up to 30m.

It will cost around A$500 – bit more with the charging stand, which the headset neatly sits on.
