Over on Reddit there is a ton of talk about third party dealers handing out a phony Xbox Live 12-month gold membership code.  This code doesn’t appear to add anything to your membership and never shows as used or expired.  The biggest concern is that now it appears to be getting Microsoft’s attention and they are swinging the ban hammer and banning accounts.  Please be careful on where you are getting your Xbox Live subscriptions from.  The code in question is below: WCGVB-P24CQ-C629T-7B9DY-X4W33 If you get this code from anywhere – DO NOT USE IT!!!! Hopefully Microsoft can help those who … Read More »

So earlier (here) we covered the best console deals that we’d seen up until that point. This time around it’s the turn of the games and add ons such as Live subscriptions. Titanfall 2 – £19.99 – HMV No that isn’t a typo, if there’s a HMV near you that you’ve not yet visited then get down there ASAP as this deal is only available in store and while stocks last. Short of that head on over to Amazon where you can nab a copy for £28, which while isn’t quite as impressive as HMV’s £19.99 it’s still a monster saving … Read More »

Video games have changed a lot over the years. Gone now are the days when gamers sat alone in front of their TVs challenging themselves against a game and a game alone. Even when we did used to play games with friends, we’d have to squeeze up together on the sofa and share a controller. Nowadays, we can play games with our friends no matter where in the world they may be. Xbox Live has changed our entire existence, connecting us with other gamers from across the globe. This has completely destroyed the myth that gamers are anti-social loners, although … Read More »

At first, you could feel the excitement in the room, it was electric, a new console that could out-perform the Xbox 360 in most ways. But, this story isn’t a simple one, fraught with misunderstandings and frankly crazy ideas even before the reveal, it seemed as though Xbox was happy to throw caution to the wind, in doing so it lost huge credibility from its … Read More »

In this series of semi-regular posts we take a closer look at new and upcoming features for Xbox, and speculate on what they might mean for the console and the brand. At their E3 2016 briefing, Microsoft announced a handful of new features coming to Xbox, but in the glitz and glamour of the City of Angels detail was, predictably, light. Let’s take a closer look at one of those new features, Clubs. Clubs are exactly whet they sound like – little gangs of like-minded folks who have some common interest. That might be a particular game, or it might … Read More »
