If you've ever felt bad about making a terrible investment, rest assured it couldn't possibly be as terrible as the one Logan Paul recently made. Less than a month after the YouTuber-turned-boxer made headlines for purchasing the "only known sealed box of first-edition base set Pokemon cards" for a staggering $3.5 million, Paul has revealed he was scammed. Following speculation online regarding the authenticity of the cards, Paul decided to film an unboxing video for his channel, inviting a well-known trading card authenticator to assist him in verifying the validity of the cards. Despite the authenticator assuring Paul the boxes looked indisputably official back when he first came into contact with them last March, the pair--along with a few of Paul's friends--opened a box to reveal several cases of wrapped Pokemon card packs that had obviously been tampered with.

Picking up an Xbox Series X hard drive is one of the first items we'd recommend if you've recently bought one of the super-powerful next-gen gaming systems - especially if you have Xbox Game Pass too.

We'll guide you through which one best suits your needs and we'll show you the cheapest prices for them too. The Xbox Series X doesn't come with much storage as the 1TB listed on the box actually translates into about 802GB of usual storage. As for the cheaper Series S console, the listed 512GB works out at a rather horrifying 364GB of usable space. So yes, let's get an upgrade so you can fit more than Call of Duty: Warzone and a few more of today's average-sized triple-A games on your new machine. Let's clear something up though. The bespoke internal NVMe SSDs inside the consoles … [Read more...] about Best Xbox Series X hard drive, SSD, and memory card solutions in 2022

The Nvidia RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT matchup is going to be hot stuff in 2022. And this was highlighted and confirmed recently when CES 2022 became a battleground for entry-level video cards looking to fight their way for market dominance on both sides. AMD announced the RX 6500 XT on January 4 and Nvidia wasn't far behind with its unveiling of the RTX 3050 later that morning.

These GPUs are targeting 1080p (Full HD) at high settings in the latest releases, such as Resident Evil Village, Back 4 Blood, and Call of Duty: Vanguard as well as esports competitive titles (CS: GO, Valorent, etc.) at higher FPS. There are many factors to consider when deciding where to sit in the RTX 3050 vs Radeon RX 6500 XT match, and it comes down to more than numbers.
