Microsoft to bring Xbox Game Pass, Project xCloud to Nintendo Switch: report

Microsoft is planning to bring its Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud services to the Nintendo Switch, according to a report from YouTube channel Direct Feed Games.
As noted by Game Informer senior editor Imran Khan, Direct Feed Games has a strong track record of accurately reporting on Nintendo-related rumours.
In theory, this would mean that Nintendo Switch users could take advantage of Xbox Game Pass’ 100-plus library of games, which includes every Xbox Game Studios-published title. In other words, this means that Xbox One console-exclusive games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears of War 4 and Crackdown 3 would be playable on the Switch, on top of, hypothetically, any future entries in those and other Xbox franchises. The service works similar to Netflix, although games are downloaded for better performance rather than streamed.

You haven’t lived until you’ve used the Galaxy S10+ to charge the iPhone XS Max

In what I can only describe as a ridiculous combination of costly smartphones, it’s actually possible to charge Apple’s iPhone XS Max with Samsung’s recently revealed Galaxy S10+.
This means that I am using the $1,419 CAD Galaxy S10+ to charge the $1,519 iPhone XS Max, amounting to a total of $2,938, or, pretty much the definition of excess.
Though Apple doesn’t release official technical specifications regarding battery size, the iPhone XS packs a 3,174mAh battery, according to ZDnet. On the other hand, the S10 features a 3,400mAh battery, the S10+ includes a 4,100mAh battery and the S10e includes a 3,100mAh battery.
The S10’s ‘Wireless PowerShare’ works with all Qi wireless charging compatible devices. This means that while the feature is compatible with Samsung’s Galaxy Buds, it’s also possible to charge any Qi device with the rear of the S10.
In order to get the S10’s backwards charging feature up and running, swipe down from the top the S10 and tap the ‘Wireless PowerShare’ option..

Players will be able to change teams in Pokémon Go next week

On February 26th Pokémon Go players will be able to buy a ‘Team Change Medallion’ and join a new squad.
The Medallion is going on sale at 4pm ET/1pm PT and it is priced at 1,000 PokéCoins to buy, which costs roughly $14 CAD.
Once you buy a Medallion you can’t buy another one for another year.
That’s all the Medallion does, but lots of players are probably pretty happy now that they can join the same teams as their friends.
