Every generation of consoles has its ‘default’.

Sometimes that default is difficult to define, other times it’s clear as day.

PlayStation 2: default. Obviously.

Super Nintendo? Probably default. A close run race. Plenty had Mega Drives. Blood in the playgrounds that one. A dark time for the empire.

PlayStation 1. Default.

Xbox 360. Default.

While computers have been used by the military in creating simulations and training operators in the use of equipment, this is the first time I've seen something from the gaming world make it into production like this. The US Navy is using an Xbox controller to operate the periscope on Virginia-class submarines.

The new consoles have finally been announced, the dust is beginning to settle, and now there are a lot of choices for anyone wanting to make their way back into gaming or starting from scratch. Maybe you don't know one PS4 SKU from another or have any idea who Nathan Drake is -- and that's ok.

Not everyone has the time or the motivation to be a gaming enthusiast, and so this guide is for the rest of you: explaining the consoles, the games, and the technologies you need to know about to hold up a reasonably detailed conversation about video gaming in 2017.

Microsoft just announced what we've all been waiting for: the birth of Project Scorpio, its much-teased next-generation console. It's now called the Xbox One X, and it's both the smallest Xbox ever built as well as the most powerful console ever -- built for gaming on 4K TVs, in HDR, at a smooth 60fps.

The Microsoft Store is selling the 500GB Xbox One S bundled with a choice of six popular games for just $299. That's $100 off the usual RRP. The deal also includes the snazzy Gears Of War 4 Special Edition console pictured above. Here are the links to buy online.

If you have a new (and probably quite expensive) 4K HDR TV, then 4K video is amazing -- it looks incredible. But to watch a 4K Blu-ray, you need a 4K Blu-ray player, which can set you back quite a few hundred dollars more than regular Blu-ray. If you do want to make that investment, though, the cheapest 4K Blu-ray player actually does a lot more than just play movies. You can buy a 4K-toting Xbox One S for as little as $349, a full $200 cheaper than the least expensive Blu-ray player on sale in Australia today.

To celebrate the release of Battlefield 1 and Gears Of War 5, Microsoft is releasing two new-look versions of its Xbox One S video game console. The Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Special Edition is dark blue, whereas the Xbox One S Battlefield 1 Special Edition is finished in grey. Both will be available from November 1 for $399 and come bundled with the aforementioned games.
