Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox, is a man of the people, he holds the same hopes and aspirations for the Xbox One as the fans of the console do. Obviously he wants to see the console succeed from a business stand point but also because he is a gaming fan. Spencer isn't one to simply take to Twitter to plug the latest game, advertise the latest bundle or promote his upcoming public appearances. He likes to keep in touch with what fans would like to see from the Xbox One. One subject he seems particularly passionate about is the continued support ... Read More »

It's not often that you'll stumble across third party hardware products that have been officially licensed by Xbox, with the traditional green Xbox One banner emblazoned on the packaging, but the Horipad Pro For Xbox One is one such controller. As such you'd expect that this product would be of the highest quality, and live up to the high quality standards that Microsoft themselves set for their gaming accessories. Unfortunately, first impressions of the Horipad Pro are not exactly stellar ones. The initial unboxing is when the trepidation first sets in. The controller is extremely light; in fact, if you are an Xbox One ... Read More »
Yesterday we reported on the latest preview update which you can read full details of here. Included in the update were features such as Arena tournaments (currently only for US preview members) and more additions to the Xbox's group feature. Perhaps the niftiest little part of yesterday's update however was the inclusion of a new animation and sound clip that is triggered when a player unlocks a rare achievement. The new notification allows players to "discover just how unique an Achievement is among players of a given game and celebrate the Achievement itself with a special notification and diamond icon ...

Recently at EGX Ubisoft were exhibiting the next South Park title, the delightfully named The Fractured But Whole. While the game may have one of, if not, the most adolescently crude titles in recent video game history that shouldn't detract from the games substance. Much like its predecessor it's evident, even from the small amount of gameplay that you're privy to during the demo, that the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, had a lot of involvement in the games story line. The jokes and actions of the characters are all distinctly South Park-esque. While I could spoil story ... Read More »
