Microsoft reckons that they need to step things up in the Europe, even as Sony comes out swinging with some astonishing claims.Click here to read more...
Microsoft held back their big 2016 games at E3 this year, which arguably hurt them in the short term as their rivals merrily splurged on loads of big yet depressingly distant games.
However, Xbox is set to make some serious noise at Gamescom in August, at which Microsoft will be going in heavy with Scalebound, Crackdown and Quantum Break just for starters. Considering that Sony won't be holding a presser and Nintendo are Nintendo, they have an open goal and a prime opportunity to wow us with their upcoming wares.Click here to read more...
Alien Isolation is just fantastic. It's a world away from the previous titles from the series with running and gunning totally not being an option. If you like stealth, Alien Isolation and becoming half scared to death then this game is definitely right up your alley.
Make sure to check out our 8/10 review of Alien: Isolation.

You can extend your Xbox One's hard-drive space by simply using an external USB drive like this one. This £75.95 Samsung external drive will add an extra 3TB (or 3000GB) to your Xbox One's storage capacity and is a much better way to buy extra space rather than opting for the new 1TB console model.
£1.39 for an Xbox One game? Madness.
Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood is a handsome and surprisingly sharp platform puzzler. Though stronger characters, storyline and controls could have made it truly special, it's still well worth exploring if you're looking for something fresh to play on your Xbox One. - Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood Xbox One Review | Surprisingly Sharpie (7/10)

It's a bit old hat now is Project CARS given that Project CARS 2 has now been announced.
It's not really but we may as well mock the situation given that this game has only been released for around 48 days.
Project CARS is an absolutely stunning game if not hard, but that just may well be an indication of not holding the skills I assumed I had with simulation games.
Playstation 4 and Xbox One owners with The Witcher 3 should soon expect patch 1.05 which includes the following fixes:
It's not my intention to make anybody feel old but I have to indicate that it has been 13 years since Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 was released. My personal favourite has to be Pro Skater 2 (Playstation, 2000) where I literally spent hours upon hours in the hanger performing such tricks as the 360 Roastbeef or the Madonna.
In fact add to that the amount of time I also spent on Dave Mirra Freestlye BMX has me thinking 2000 was a pretty energetic year for me without stepping foot outside.Click here to read more...
It's always handy to have an additional controller just incase a mate comes round or simply for the fact you decided to throw yours at the wall in a fit of rage.
This combination also comes with 14 days Xbox Live and I must point out that Mortal Kombat X is a digital download.
It also packs a 1TB hard drive, but making "vroom" noises when you turn it on is clearly the major selling point.Click here to read more...
So, you like football games? More notably your preference for football games sits with Pro Evolution Soccer over FIFA? Brilliant, because the PES 2016 20th Anniversary Edition has been announced by Konami and is an Amazon exclusive and contains:
We're told that gaming will get better on the Xbox One with the introduction of the new and improved Xbox One Dashboard. In what looks like a major shift away from the current 'metro' theme Microsoft have seemingly focused on a more simple, speed enhanced design.
A double tap on the Xbox One home button will slide in a pane from the left of your screen for easy access to your friends list, notifications, messages and even some important settings you may wish to access quite often without having to delve to far into the consoles options.Click here to read more...
Trackmania Turbo was announced by Ubisoft at this years E3 and will release for both Xbox One and Playstation 4 on November 27th 2015. To be quite honest it looks like a rather cool fun racer and at £22.87 seems like a no brainer for a very good pre purchase price from Zavvi.
Make sure to use code E3UBI drop the listed price of £25.99.Click here to read more...

It's been on and around this price pre owned for a little while now but we totally think that Halo: The Master Chief Collection is worth £19.99 containing:
Check out our Halo: The Master Chief Collection Review | Part 1: The Campaigns and Halo: The Master Chief Collection Review | Part 2 - Multiplayer & Verdict where Jon scored Halo: MCC a very impressive 10/10 stating:
Halo: The Master Chief Collection sets a new benchmark for remakes, HD collections and re-releases by delivering thirteen years of excellence in a single purchase. Four restored campaigns, comprehensive multiplayer, one cohesive experience that reminds us just how important Halo was to videogames and the FPS genre... and how much fun it still is.Click here to read more...
We strongly believe that ZombiU is possibly the most under-appreciated game of our current generation, seriously.
Unfortunately, due to poor sales as a launch title for the Wii U a sequel will never see the light of day on the platform given that Ubisoft have pretty much made it clear that they have no intention of producing games of a 'mature' feel on the Wii U anymore.
So what do you do? Well, first off you need to drop that U at the end of the game title, it's just not going to work any more.Click here to read more...
