Microsoft Xbox One X

Microsoft recently announced the Xbox One X at the Xbox E3 Briefing in Los Angeles. Formerly code-named “Project Scorpio”, the Xbox One X offers the ultimate 4K entertainment package with 4K Ultra HD for Blu-ray X and streamed content, HDR support for gaming and video, and Dolby Atmos support.

The best part about the Xbox One X is that all Xbox One games and accessories are compatible with it. This means that Xbox gamers will already have a library of games that will look and play better on the Xbox One X. Xbox will also expand the Xbox One backward compatibility library of nearly 400 popular Xbox 360 games to include original Xbox classics, starting with fan favorite “Crimson Skies.”

In addition, “Gears of War 4,” “Forza Horizon 3,” “Minecraft,” “Resident Evil 7,” “Final Fantasy 15,” “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands,” “Rocket League” and dozens of other popular Xbox One games will receive free updates to take full advantage of the power of Xbox One X.

Besides announcing the Xbox One X, Microsoft also showcased a record number of 42 titles at E3 including 22 which are exclusive to Xbox.

The Microsoft Xbox One X will be coming to Singapore later this year and retail for S$699.

#NuggsForCarter broke the records for the most Retweeted Tweet

The world record for the most retweeted tweet has been broken. For the past few years, the record was held by Ellen DeGeneres’ 2014 Oscars selfie. Well, the record has been broken by Carter Wilkerson and his call for 18 million retweet to get him a year supply of Wendy’s Nuggets.

Unlike Ellen DeGeneres who took just a day to become the most retweeted Tweet, Carter Wilkerson took slightly more than a month. It all started with Carter asking the official Wendy’s account how many retweet does it take for them to give him 1 year supply of Nuggets. The Wendy’s Twitter account responded 18 million and I guess the rest are history. There was even a hashtag #NuggsForCarter with custom emoji featuring a box of Wendy’s nuggets.

And although Carter Wilkerson didn’t reach the 18 million retweets, Wendy’s still gave him 1 year supply of Nuggets and a $100,000 donation in Carter’s name to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Cool!
