Get an Xbox One X on Amazon with your choice of game at a huge discount

The Xbox One X is the most powerful game console currently available, and it’s capable of playing several of the biggest AAA games at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. If you’ve been holding off on purchasing the system so far, Amazon currently has a huge deal that will get you not just the console, but a great new game to go along with it.

On Amazon right now, the Xbox One X 1TB console is available for just $350, down from its standard $500 price. It includes either Gears 5, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, or NBA 2K20, all at the same price. You can even get the limited-edition Gears 5 bundle with a special console at the same price if you’re a major fan of the series.

You can’t go wrong with any of the bundled games. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is one of our favorites from last year, with gameplay that blends elements from series like Uncharted and Dark Souls, along with plenty of fan service for longtime Star Wars enthusiasts. Gears 5, meanwhile, is an excellent entry in the shooter franchise that takes some bold risks, including a psychological horror element and the new cooperative Escape mode.

Alongside the console and game, you’ll also get a free month of Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and EA Access. This means you’ll be able to play hundreds of more games for free during your first month, and you can decide which one will be your next obsession after you finish the bundled game. Xbox Game Pass adds new titles on a continuous basis, both from Microsoft’s own library as well as third-party publishers.

When the Xbox Series X launches later this year, you should be able to carry over all your Xbox One games onto it, as well. The console supports full backward compatibility with the current-generation console, and it will also support the same backward compatibility for previous Xbox systems that the Xbox One does today. At launch, it also won’t have any exclusives right away, so new Xbox One X owners won’t be missing out on the latest games.

Nintendo Switch’s weirdest launch game is getting a surprise sequel
Key art for Everybody 1-2-Switch!

Nintendo has quietly announced Everybody 1-2-Switch!, a sequel to one of the oddest launch titles for Nintendo Switch.
1-2-Switch! was a Nintendo Switch launch title that served as a tech demo of sorts for the Joy-Con controllers, with players completing minigames based on direction from actors in live-action clips. It's a very quirky and critically divisive Nintendo Switch game, so it's a bit surprising to see a follow-up. According to the eShop listing for Everybody 1-2-Switch!, this game lets players use their Joy-Cons or smartphones to complete a variety of team-based minigames. And that's about all we've seen or know about this $30 game ahead of its June 30 launch alongside some new pastel Joy-Cons.

Everybody 1-2-Switch!'s announcement was quite unorthodox for Nintendo. It simply tweeted about the game's existence and opened up preorders on the eShop. This all happened with no reveal trailer less than a month before the game's launch. It's unknown why Nintendo's taking this approach instead of including the game in a Nintendo Direct or other major showcase, but a 2022 report from Fanbyte may reveal the answer. According to that report, Everybody 1-2-Switch! tested horribly, and Nintendo worried that the game could "damage the company’s reputation as a great software developer." 
Almost a year after that report, it seems that the game has improved enough to release, or maybe Nintendo is just willing to take the hit after the impressive launch and critical reception of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Either way, this is a weird sequel to a weird Nintendo Switch launch game that's being mutedly marketed so it doesn't elicit much hype. We'll just have to wait and play it for ourselves if we want to know whether Everybody 1-2-Switch! is an enjoyable game or not.
Everybody 1-2-Switch! will be released physically and digitally for Nintendo Switch on June 30.

While that's great, you will likely want to play with your friends first and foremost. Here's how you can form your ideal party of champions with friends in Diablo 4.

How to change your title in Diablo 4
Diablo 4 promotional image of Lillith

Despite creating a custom character, and even giving them a name, in Diablo 4, you are really only referred to as Wanderer during the game itself. Your name does appear to other players, however, as well as something called a Title. These are comprised of two words that add a little flavor and personality to you character. The thing is, even as you unlock more options as you play, the game doesn't give you much of a tutorial in how to customize it. Rather than walk around with your default Title for the entire game, spice things up by learning how to change your Title in Diablo 4,
