Halo 5 only £24.99 on Xbox One

Halo 5 for under £25? I think we call that a biting point. With Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars: Battlefront breathing down Halo 5's neck, it makes sense that retailers start to chip away at the price for Master Chief's latest outing.

That's an absurdly cheap price so soon after launch. We'd understand more if there had been a glut of scathing reviews or serious issues with the multiplayer, but there haven't. Actually, let's not overthink it and just enjoy the discount.

Wait, what? Under £30 already? There's a long-shot assault rifle for multiplayer bundled in too.

Halo 5 falls to its cheapest price yet

The price war really is heating up for Halo 5, with this latest deal undercutting the one we highlighted yesterday by a pound. With it gradually approaching the £30 mark, it's fair to say that Halo fans will get great value for money with this one, especially with the multiplayer. The main campaign may have divided opinion, but the gameplay is reportedly solid and, well, it's Halo. For just over £30. Thanks to daveykinetic @ HUKD!

Get an Xbox One 500gb with Halo 5 for just £248.20

We're just hours away from the official launch of Halo 5, and this bundle is a good little deal if you think the Master Chief's current-gen debut is the right time to jump into the latest Xbox. Reviews for the game suggest the campaign doesn't hit the high notes it should, but the multiplayer is once again the most satisfying part. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Is this the cheapest Halo 5 preorder you'll get?

With big Triple A releases like Halo 5, it usually takes a sneaky voucher code to get a price below that stubborn RRP. Thankfully we have a tasty one that will do the job and then some. Today's Rakuten code knocks the game down to £35.95.

Microsoft Gamescom 2015 Presentation Roundtable Impressions - This fight is far from over

Microsoft have just left the stage at Cologne for their Gamescom 2015 presentation and we've put our heads together to bring you our roundtable impressions of what we've just seen. There were new game announcements and lots of encouraging footage of upcoming titles. Unlike E3 though, there was plenty to see coming in 2016 too. Is Sony going to regret not attending the largest gaming expo on the gaming calendar after this showing? We'll have to wait until Paris Games Week to find out really. For now, let's see what the green team have up their sleeves.

Microsoft E3 2015 Predictions - "Xbox smells blood in the water"

E3 is almost upon us and you can practically taste the hype. It tastes... delicious.

Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda, Square Enix and even PC Gamer are stepping up to the plate with major press conferences and livestreamed events, kicking off on June 14th. You can expect fierce rivalries, gamesmanship and some shock reveals as the big players attempt to one-up each other and steal the show.

So it's high time we kicked off our annual season of prediction articles with Microsoft, who promise nothing less than the "greatest games lineup in Xbox history." Here's what we expect to see from their E3 presentation, which you can watch here, as well as what we'd personally love (and hate) to see them announce.

Microsoft E3 2015 Predictions - "Xbox smells blood in the water"

I fully expect the Microsoft showcase to go in heavy and take no prisoners, because there's a good chance that Xbox smells blood in the water. With Uncharted 4 and Zelda delayed, they've got an open goal this Christmas and you'd better believe that they plan on gaining some serious ground.

Unfortunately, as you've doubtlessly noticed, the fact that Gamestop are hosting the video sets a bit of a worrying trend.

COMMENT | Halo 5 boss Frank O'Connor is both right and wrong to slam "industry insiders"

COMMENT | Halo 5 boss Frank O'Connor is both right and wrong to slam "industry insiders"

Frank O'Connor doesn't like people breaking embargoes, and after notorious industry tipster CBOAT's (crazy buttocks on a train) playful little Guardians of the Galaxy-assisted nod to the reveal of Halo 5: Guardians, O'Connor has been fuming. On NeoGAF, CBOAT (also responsible for swathes of rumoured leaked info in the run up to the Xbox One and PS4 reveals last year -- some of it accurate, some of it not so accurate) has been amusingly venerated as something of a prophet for some time. This is NeoGAF, mind, their ordination ceremonies are fairly unofficial.

O'Connor, however, is less keen for such leaking swine to be hero worshipped in such a manner, and took to NeoGAF under his forum ID "Stinkles" to deliver a polemic outlining the damage leakers do:

Breaking embargos is not prophesy. Nor does it require any particular skill or insight. Ultimately he is taking or being given information and leaking it, illegally and often erroneously. And he isn't doing it for some noble or worthy reason. He's doing it for attention.

People, including nice people with kids and families and stuff, work super hard on this stuff and wake up in the morning to find some of their effort blown up. It's not fun, and for what? So you can have a mildly interesting surprise 8 hours early and lacking context? Or get hyped or disappointed disproportionately? Or get someone fired or someone innocent yelled at?

Ok. But it isn't prophecy, nor ultimately even important. It's annoying.

It's not hard to sympathise with O'Connor's sentiments to a certain degree. When you're beavering away on something, any kind of project that has you excited, large or small, you want to be the first one to tell people about it. After the blood, sweat, and tears of getting a project off of the ground, surely as a creator you want to be the first one to relay the message and start getting the word out. To have such an opportunity taken away from you is galling, particularly in the run-up to the world's biggest games expo.

COMMENT | Halo 5 boss Frank O'Connor is both right and wrong to slam "industry insiders"

Embargoes serve a purpose in the games industry -- information embargoes allow companies to ready themselves for the public eye. First impressions are absolutely key, and the fact is that the internet can be a home to a hysterical audience. Any information, if it isn't successfully presented (and sometimes even when it is) is always twisted and moulded and torn apart and frequently bastardised as soon as it is released. Once out in the open, there's no real way of controlling it, and so strict NDAs reign supreme, ensuring that everything is just so.
