It was recently announced that the life time of the Xbox One could be extended in the same way that PC's are upgraded and they live on. We decided to have a good old fashioned debate on the subject of whether the Xbox One is fit for the future? -- Being a negative nellie is Jeff Simpkins who argues No: Let's start by looking at the most blatant proof that the Xbox One is not ready for the future, and that is that it isn't ready for now. We are over 2 years into the consoles life and yet somehow ... Read More »

The Division is set for changes to the way in which PvP in The Dark Zone works. Apparently Ubisoft are currently unhappy with how engaging it is to go rogue and fight other players in the DZ. They therefore intend to change how much EXP you lose for dying with rogue status when killed by other agents in the DZ. The hope is that this will encourage players to attack each other more often and heighten that sense of insecurity whilst playing in the DZ. On top of this, Ubisoft has also said it has no plans to nerf the ... Read More »

So, it is common knowledge that The Division will be including extra content over the next 12 months and the first update is coming in April! The first Update is called Incursions and will be free to everyone playing the game. Ubisoft have said that Incursions “will add an endgame activity designed for squad play, challenging teams of four players to face nigh-unstoppable enemies for high-level loot.” (Sounds a lot like Destiny's Raids to me). On top of this it will also add Loot Trading to the game so you can swap your items with your friends. Further to this it ... Read More »
Prison Architect is the latest game to hit the Game Preview programme on Xbox One. After a successful outing on PC, Introversion Software, a UK based production team, enlisted the help of Double Eleven to bring this incarcerate-em-up to consoles. Prison Architect (as you may have guessed) is a game in which you are an architect for a prison. However, on top of that you also have the day to day running of your prison to tend to as THE GOVERNOR! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNdOuslDkKM Designing a prison turns out to be fairly straightforward once you have done a tutorial mission or two. The simple controls allow ... Read More »

For some time now, here at Xbox One UK, we have been considering the possibility of creating an Esports team. We obviously have a huge amount of members now and so it would be reasonable to suspect that some of us are capable of playing at that level. I spoke to the big boss man about it this week and he gave me the go ahead to get an idea of what games people would be interested in playing at a professional level. There are the obvious choices of Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Halo 5, Rainbow Six:Siege and ... Read More »
