A BIG Thank You to You from Xbox One UK
Xbox One UK has had a great 2015, and that’s thanks to you – our fans. All the staff here work on Xbox One UK for one reason and one reason only, our love of gaming! We are all volunteers at this we find write and post articles here on the page. We create edit and post videos on our You Tube channel, we also have people running our Facebook page and Facebook group, and the Twitch channel. All of this is run in our spare time; sometimes it’s easy and sometimes it’s hard but we keep coming back and doing more. Why? Well its for you, because at the end of the day it’s you that makes us what we are.
We are going to be taking a Christmas break, but don’t worry, we will still be around. You may well still see the odd news article here and there and of course our YouTube, Facebook and Twitch editors may be popping in and out too.
So what has happened this year?
We have managed to have 850,000 unique visitors to the site; that is a HUGE amount and we are so grateful to you all for visiting us! Next year we will hopefully try and get the that total even bigger, maybe even top the 1 million mark! That would be amazing.
Our total site visits for the year stands at a whopping 1,555,000, so we have a healthy returning audience – one we hope to grow next year as well.
As editors we worked hard to bring you as much up-to-date and relevant news as we could, our aim was, and is, to keep you informed of what was going on in your favorite titles. We created and posted over 2,500 news articles, from big triple A titles down to small updates for the smaller indie games that you normally might not see or hear about.
We have produced over 100 reviews, all coming direct from the editors who play the games or test the hardware; we’ve seen some fantastic games, and some at the other end of the scale, too!
Over the course of the 2015 we have also held numerous competitions, both on our site and on our Facebook page. Its a little thank you for being with us and we hope it has been a good way of us giving you something back. Have you have enjoyed participation in them? We hope to do even more giveaways in 2016.
As for our YouTube channel, its going from strength to strength, amassing 86,000 views so far this year. We have some big plans for this in 2016, with new streamers and editors coming on board – watch this space for upcoming videos.
The senior staff at Xbox One UK would like to personally thank our editors for all the hard work and commitment they put in to this site, and would like to say a BIG thank you everyone for making this last year a great year for Xbox One UK. Here’s to 2016…bigger and better than ever:
