Amazon is launching in Singapore soon

It seems like the wait is coming to an end soon. A couple of Singapore Instagramers have started posting what seems to be a sponsored post by Amazon.

While they didn’t say it’s from Amazon, the iconic arrow should be sufficient hint. We’ve been hearing rumours that Amazon has been acquiring assets such as refrigerated trucks and hiring in Singapore since late last year. Amazon will most likely be launching its Prime delivery service and AmazonFresh grocery services first in Singapore.

So #DontSayBoJio. Amazon is launching in Singapore soon. Stay tuned!

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.
