Are you ready for some massive Xbox One deals of the week?Prepare to be disappointed, then, because all we've got are a few discounted DLC packs for Need For Speed Rivals.
Never mind, though, because once again the real flavour can be found on Xbox 360. There's a wealth of publisher promotions to take advantage of, such as the entire first season of The Wolf Among Us for £6.59, PvZ: Garden Warfare for £16.74 and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon at £3.29. Check out all the prices and marketplace links below, but not before giving full credit to Rodders89 @ HUKD, who was Johnny-on-the-spot this this morning!Click here to read more...
XBL £15 Credit | Simply CD Keys | £11.99
Credit on your Xbox Live account is useful for all sorts of things like DLC, downloadable game and films. So be sure to take advantage of this deal and get some for even cheaper than usual. £15 of credit for £11.99, sounds like a plan to us. The site emails you the code within five minutes of ordering, so you could be spending today if you wanted. You can also get £10 for £8.99 or £50 for £43.99, but the £15 deal provides the best value overall. Credit can be shared on both your Xbox 360 or Xbox One too.
Thanks to The_Smug_B at HotUkDeals.
CDKeys are currently selling 12 months of Xbox LIVE Gold Membership for £22.99, but if you go over to their Facebook page and give them a "Like" you can get that price dropped even further down to £21.84.
Nice spot Eden0032!
It's all about superheroes with this week's Deals With Gold initiative. As with the previous post, some of them are better than others, but we certainly won't turn our noses up at Arkham Asylum and City for under four quid apiece, even if you do need a Gold subscription to access these deal prices.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for over £20, though? BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Don't do it.Click here for this week's "Deals" With Gold >>
There's a big fat Nordic/THQ sale that's kicked off on Xbox LIVE, with a bunch of games such as Red Faction: Armageddon, Guerilla and Darksiders getting a lovely little price slash for digital aficionados. As usual, there are a few "deals" on here that might raise some eyebrows (RF: Guerilla for £7.49 will no doubt be hilarious to anyone who's browsed physical media for it over the last couple of years) but it's worth a look for those of you who prefer convenience to clutter, and it's certainly a decent opportunity to snap up some DLC offerings if you're so inclined.Click here for the full list of Nordic/THQ deals >>
We got a big kick out of the Tomb Raider reboot, and Crystal Dynamics' Definitive Edition of the next-gen consoles is a perfect way to get into the game if you didn't own it on PS3/Xbox 360. I'm still not necessarily sold on buying it again on next-gen consoles if you already own it (I'm yet to get the game on PS4), but it's the lowest it's been at under £20 and well worth snapping up if you've been teetering on the brink.
You will need an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription to get it at this price, mind.
If you're looking to stock up on Xbox Live credit in preparation for Microsoft's weekly Xbox One deals, this CDKeys offer won't steer you far wrong. So long as you like their Facebook page and get their voucher code (you can unlike and relike if necessary), you'll get £50 worth of credit for £38.95, which you can spend on Super Time Force, Titanfall Expedition and still have plenty of change left over. Thanks to Jas10 @ HUKD!

CDKeys are currently selling 12 months of Xbox LIVE Gold Membership for £24.90, but if you go over to their Facebook page and give them a "Like" you can get that price dropped even further down to £23.65, saving you a tenner on the standard price for such goodness.
Microsoft have slashed the prices on a number of items over on Xbox LIVE including the likes of FIFA 14, Crysis 3, Dead Space, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
Check out the full list below:
If you're an Xbox Live Gold Member, you can now pick up some seriously awesome games at seriously cheap prices. See what I did there? Yeeeah.
But don't let my awful attempts at Tuesday morning humour put you off from getting involved, seeing as you can get Serious Sam 3 or Double D XXL for £1.68. Also Castlestorm, which was surprisingly good fun. Links to the marketplace and our reviews below - but not before giving due credit and thanks heatlight @ HUKD, who posted these deals long before we did.
You'll have to agree to a new user agreement later this week to continue using Xbox Live, which "asks all users to commit to keeping their contact information up to date" in an effort to clamp down on potential fraud - and demands your consent to share personal info with third-party partners.
It's a security thing. Details below.Click here to read more...
Microsoft's Xbox One charm offensive continues unabated, at least for specialist gaming media and enthusiasts. Community reps Graeme Boyd and Larry Hryb have teamed up to present a new video detailing Xbox One's multiplayer features, and the numerous improvements promised by the next generation of Xbox Live. If you're looking forward to getting involved online at launch, or are still sitting on the fence, it's probably worth a watch.
That said, it's a little galling to watch them chatting about Skype when it's locked behind the Xbox Live pay wall... yet free on other platforms including the Vita. With luck, Gold Membership will be such an attractive option that it won't matter in the long run.Click here to read more...
Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada has suggested that the PS5 might well take the form of a service rather than a console. Now, Harada is known for having some pretty far-out (yes, I've been watching Bill and Ted, sue me) ideas, but actually as this one goes, it's not really that far-fetched.Click here to read more...
All Xbox Live members will be treated as Gold Members this weekend, starting Friday, letting us enjoy the diverse range of entertainment apps, premium features and... No, I couldn't keep a straight face either. We'll all be playing Grand Theft Auto Online, or perhaps the Battlefield 4 beta for flavour.
This might also be a good opportunity to grab some multiplayer-only achievements if you're so inclined.
Xbox Live Gold members will be able to freely download and play Might & Magic: Clash Of Heroes as the next 'Games With Gold' title, Microsoft confirmed yesterday. The promotion will run throughout the first two weeks of October, and will be well worth a look if you haven't tried it out yet.
We heaped praise upon the "lengthy and enjoyable puzzle game" in our 8/10 review.
Rockstar have kicked off a massive Xbox LIVE sale this week that'll see Bully available for three quid, L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption for under a tenner, and Max Payne 3 for less than £7.
The relevant DLC has all been heavily discounted too, and you can now see exactly how much things will cost thanks to the recent XBL update that nixed Microsoft Points in favour of "real" currency.Click here to read more...
The fourth and presumably final Black Ops II map pack launches today on Xbox Live, offering another four maps (two of which are "re-imagined") and zombie scenario for 1200 Microsoft Points... no, wait... £10.20. That's going to take some getting used to! Apocalypse is due out on PC and PS3 next month.
We've got the details after the break, though I daresay many of you will be more interested in the launch trailer embedded above.Click here to read more...
Microsoft have revealed new details about how Friends Lists will work on Xbox One, stating that although you'll be able to have cross-console entries between Xbox One and Xbox 360 there'll be no cross-generation console chat.Click here to read more...
Xbox Live program manager Michael Dunn has revealed the specifics of how the Xbox One's revamped reputation system will work. A complex algorithm will take both user reports, mutings, blockings and other factors into account, in order to bracket players into three separate categories. Good, Needs Improvement... and Avoid Me.
In contrast to the Xbox 360's practically useless setup, the new system will be carefully monitored to ensure that only the truly bad apples get slapped down. It's a big promise, but an exciting one.Click here to read more...
