The Xbox One controller may be a beautifully-machined and impressive bit of kit, but it also suffered from a few deeply annoying omissions. One of which was the lack of a standard headphone port, meaning that we had to pay extra for adaptors or buy all-new hardware.
From next month, however, this won't be an issue.Click here to read more...
UPDATE: The DLC packs are now available to download.
The 3rd and 4th free DLC bundles have been released for The Witcher 3 by CD Projekt Red.
The two DLC packs are available on the Playstation Store, Xbox Store and PC now.
Although lacking productivity whilst doing so, I am really enjoying The Witcher 3 and at only level 4 over the past week all I seem to enjoy doing is checking out the scenery and gathering Parsley (I know, sad).
Make sure to check out The Witcher 3 | My first night in White Orchard which covers my first impressions of The Witcher 3 over the first six hours.
The weekly GamesCentre preowned deals are now live with some cracking savings on both Playstation 4 and Xbox One:

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.
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.Click here to read more...
This is a cracking Xbox One console bundle. A console, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt and Forza Horizon 2 for just £279.99.
The Xbox One has some seriously big exclusives on the way later this year including Halo 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza 6 and maybe Gears of War Remastered. Add this to Sunset Overdrive and Titanfall and the XO catalogue is looking very tempting if you're looking to dive into the new generation. You might find this handy too: Xbox Live account deals guide: cheap Xbox Live Gold & Xbox Live Gift Cards.
The player count on Titanfall has dropped dramatically as of late but we honestly can not understand why? Titanfall is a fun first person shooter and well worth picking up at only £12.99. #LetsIncreaseThePlayerCount.
If you don't really care for that new smell you get with games then you can pick up a preowned copy for only £9.99 on the same page. Add to that the fact that all the Titanfall DLC is now free forever. You are getting some serious bang for your buck at £12.99 (or £9.99).
Today's daily deal on the CDKeys website sees 12 months Xbox live reduced to just £19.94 for an instant key. To get the discounted price you will have to like the CDKeys Facebook page to get the 5% discount code.

Developed by a team of over 200 members over three long years, CD Projekt RED finally have all their cards on the table with their recent release of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt. I finally got my hands on my much awaited PS4 copy of The Witcher 3 last night, going on to spend the next many countless hours exploring The Continent. Did The Witcher 3 surpass all my expectations?
Before I do get started with the game in hand, I would like to point out to anybody who is yet to play any of the games in The Witcher series that if you are expecting robe laden woman with pointy black hats then you have come to the wrong party. Although extremely similar in name (and possibly magical weirdness) Witchers are very different to Witches.
The game opens up with a cinematic based in Temeria way back in 1272 which to be quite honest is brutal, extremely brutal. The Empire of Nilfgaard has struck again making movement with intention to conquer The Northern Lands.
In short The Witcher 3 is beautiful, it's emotional and is most definitely the best RPG I have played since Skyrim. My attention was forgiven within seconds of the opening quest objectives after becoming increasingly distracted by the absolutely stunning scenery sitting in the backdrop. Everything is here, the combat system seems flawless with so much depth aimed at using the correct techniques against the relevant enemies reducing any feel of rinse and repeat confrontations. The combat system includes 5 Signs (think Skyrim shouts):
PS4 owners can get themselves a copy of Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition for just £16.99 delivered at base.com. Xbox One owners will have to fork out the extra 25p if they want to grab a copy from Gameseek for just £17.24 delivered.
Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition includes all of the stylish action gameplay from the original release, all previously released downloadable content (including the Vergil’s Downfall campaign), plus brand new modes and additional content, making this the ultimate offering for Devil May Cry fans.

With only three weeks to go until E3 2015, all eyes are on the big three console manufacturers to deliver and the rumour mill is spinning out of control. Plenty of hot-button reports have emerged regarding Microsoft in particular, who likely smell blood in the water after Uncharted 4 and Zelda's delay and will probably attempt to capitalise on their upcoming lineup. With a Gears Of War remaster all but confirmed, there's certainly a lot to look forward to.
One of the most pervasive rumours this time around, however, is that they'll announce or at least hint at a new Xbox One model designed to be slimmer, cheaper and more competitive than its bloated predecessor.
Our E3 2015 prediction coverage begins in earnest next week, but whether or not these rumours have any basis in reality, they do pose an interesting question. If Microsoft did bring out an Xbox One slim, would you actually buy it? What would it have to offer and cost to tempt you off the fence? What features would it have to provide and cut out?

Resident Evil Revelations 2 on at £16.85 is an absolute steal. Brendan reviewed Revelations 2 for us back in March saying:
This final episode was shorter than we were expecting and leaves more questions than answers. Some bad habits crept back in too as the horror atmosphere from earlier in the season has been replaced with backs-to-the-wall action. As an overall package though, the episodic take on Resident Evil has been a success. At half the price of a regular game release, the value for money is excellent. A nine-hour campaign, co-op options and a deep Raid mode make this an essential buy for Resident Evil fans.
Glitch? Given that the Season Pass is still currently £15.99 on the Xbox Store we think it most definitely is.
Check out our review of Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron From Ice Review | “The North will remember that” where Carl had to say:
Despite the limitations of its aging engine, Telltale have managed to replicated the world of Westeros in its cel-shaded art style. More than that, the dangers and intrigue from Game of Thrones are there, and if Iron From Ice is any indication, we could be in for an enjoyable yet emotional charged journey to save House Forrester.
It is starting to look like a good weekend for Xbox One gamers. CDKeys have just dropped the price on Wolfenstein: The Old Blood for Xbox One to just £11.99 for a digital download. To get the discounted price you will need to like the CDKeys Facebook page, but don't worry, you can get as many codes as you need.
Wow. In response to aggressive PS4 price cuts this weekend, Microsoft has issued a challenge to Sony on their own official storefront. You can now get an Xbox One, two controllers, play & charge kit, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, Evolve and Halo: The Master Chief Collection with change for £310!
Let's face it: you're about to buy an Xbox One.
I can't help but wonder if it's a misprice, but it's worth finding out!
"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." - 7/10 Dealspwn review.
You will need to go through the usual channels to grab Max: The Curse of Brotherhood at this price. Simply click this link, enter anything into the box and voila. 5% discount code.

I wasn't a big fan of Destiny when I first experienced it on the PS3. I found it somewhat monotonous and repetitive. Fast forward four or five months and I am now playing it on the PS4 and absolutely loving it.
I would recommend this game to anybody for £20, so the fact you can currently pick it up for as low as £12.95 is an absolute bargain.

Shopto.net have just dropped the prices on some of the games on their online store. One of the games that i noticed was Resident Evil: Revelations on Xbox One for just £19.85 making it £7 cheaper than what they have the PS4 version listed for.
Stealth gaming isn't usually my thing. I personally like a right good run and gun action game, which is why playing Alien Isolation and rating it as one of my best played games of the past 12 months absolutely shocked me.
When we reviewed Alien: Isolation we gave it a well deserved 8/10 with Matt describing it as the most terrifying game he has played:Click here to read more...
During a presentation of their recent financials, Capcom stated they are planning to release more HD remasters of "popular older games" [Videogamer]. This isn't surprising really especially as the recent Resident Evil HD Remaster went on to sell over a million copies and had a strong critical reception. Their new-gen DmC: Definitive Edition was also well-received by the press and remasters of Devil May Cry 4 and Street Fighter IV have already been confirmed. Capcom's recent remasters have been pretty damn good in our opinion, so we're certainly up more. Here are a few likely candidates, along with some wishful long shots.
Surely this one's a dead cert? The series is riding high at the moment thanks to the Resi Remaster and the Revelations 2 series. Like the Resi 1 remaster, most of the work is already done as Zero was a GameCube title that could be polished up relatively soon. Hopefully this would lead to Resident Evil 2 finally getting that much deserved remake.Click here to read more...
