It’s fair to say that when the trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II dropped 2 weeks ago the internet’s collective jaw dropped in wonder. Featuring in-game footage rendered using the Frostbite engine, (developed by EA DICE for Battlefield) and delivering “ooh & aah” moments aplenty, it could be argued that the 2mins 18secs of footage left us with as many questions as answers. While EA DICE are keeping wraps on most of what we want to know until EA Play in June, they have been so kind as to answer four of the most common questions that have been asked of … Read More »

With the Xbox being a solid brand name in gaming for over fifteen years now, there’s been a vast library of games to satisfy our gaming needs over the three generations of console. Some of these games became one hit wonders. Some spawned franchises and many sequels. And some we just resigned to the recycle bin never to mention again. After the release of the zany Xbox platformer Voodoo Vince last week on Xbox One, we got thinking here at Xbox One UK. What other titles from the original Xbox would we like to see have a remaster on Xbox … Read More »

In a recent article, Gametransfers announced that it had found greek online retailer Public.GR has the console at $600 or around £460. This sits much more in line with the noise coming from Microsoft themselves who … Read More »
