There are many reasons to build a new PC or to simply upgrade what you have - but for many of us there's 2077 reasons wrapped up into one. November's launch of Cyberpunk 2077.

We might be a bit late to the party, but who can blame us? Revisiting these three classics has been beyond a trip of nostalgia, it's been a re-visited class in pure game-design, and has shown us just who and what has been responsible for so many modern games out there in the wild. Bottom line: no one does it better than Nintendo.

But given this is, frankly, Treyarch's greatest gift to the Call of Duty franchise, I reckon I might stay up for it as well.

The tech gurus over at Digital Foundry were one of the lucky few to be sent a preview Xbox Series X console in recent weeks -- and as is their way they put the next-gen console through its paces by testing a suite of Xbox One titles on the console. And seeing how it stacks up against the still powerful Xbox One X. Considering these titles have not received optimisations or specific Xbox Series X patches the results are impressive.
