Amazon currently has a great Xbox One console bundle. For just £229 you can get the console along with Rare Replay and Ori and the Blind Forest.
We've had more than our fair share of open world sandboxes on the new-gen consoles, but the wait for Just Cause 3 has been a rather long one. After all, nobody quite does explosions like Rico Rodriguez.
Just Cause 3 does so many fun things right, but the number of basic elements that it utterly fails at is truly shocking. My first few hours with the game were not good at all actually. However, as I got used to the rough edges, the fun side of the game eventually prevailed and I found myself reluctantly being teased into having a good time.
The story is mere window dressing to the carnage. Rico is once again tasked with liberating a sun-kissed set of islands from a tyrannical dictator. Rico isn't so much of a character as much as a walking accent. But at least he's not an asshole (hello, Mad Max).
What's the best way to liberate a nation? By blowing up anything with red paint on it apparently. Small towns or settlements are packed with destructible items like propaganda speakers, dictator statues, billboards, fuel depots, generators and the like. Destroy them all and that's another location ticked off the map. With over 100 areas to liberate, you're not going home any time soon. You'll also need to reach various liberation milestones to unlock story missions, so you may as well get stuck into any town you glide past.Click here to read more...
ShopTo's eBay store currently has a great Xbox One console bundle. For just £223.99 you can get the console along with Rare Replay and Ori and the Blind Forest. Act fast as stock is already limited.

You can extend your Xbox One's hard-drive space by simply using an external USB drive like this one. This £89.99 Seagate external drive will add an extra 5TB (or 5000GB) 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. Naturally, it can also be used for your PC too. We ran a deal for a 5TB Seagate drive a while back for £30 more and that was a great deal, so this one's a no-brainer.
UPDATE: Sold out now, but there's a Seagate alternative for the same price instead via the link below:

Here's a great way to jump onto Microsoft's latest console if you want all the football. Included with the Xbox One console is a copy of FIFA 16, and there's even some tokens thrown in for use with the FIFA Ultimate Team. On top of that, there's also a free month of EA Access, meaning you'll be able to play the games currently in the Vault, gain access to new EA titles before anyone else, and get a 10% discount on all digital purchases. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!
If you've been swayed by the thought of playing Halo 5 or Rise of the Tomb Raider this Christmas, and want to make sure you have plenty of hard drive space, this offer is a great one to consider. It might not come with any games, but it's the cheapest deal by £50, which is a huge saving. With plenty of well received games already out, and even more on the way in 2016, now might be the opportune time to grab one. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
It's a feature that many Xbox One owners been asking for, and on November 12th it will finally be here. Earlier this afternoon Microsoft announced that 104 Xbox 360 games will be available to play on November 12th, including the Gears of War series, Fallout 3, and Mirror's Edge. There are some notable omissions, with the Xbox News site promising more titles will be added in the near future, but we have the full list for your perusal after the jump.Click here to read more...
If you've had your eye on an Xbox One console for a while now, this is a great way to jump in. This bundle comes with Fallout 4 and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition.
At this price, you're essentially getting your copy of Fallout 4 for free. The Xbox One version of the long-awaited game is pretty tempting too, as mods are coming to the XO console first, ahead of their arrival on the PS4. You might want to play Gears before diving into Fallout though, as you'll be in Bethesda's game for months once you start.
Thanks to eternaldragonuk.
The 1TB Xbox One console is on offer right now for just £279.99. This saves almost £20 over the next best deal.
If you can get a decent deal on a 1TB console, it's certainly worth the effort as new-gen games have massive mandatory installs, often upto 50GB, so you can see the space easily get swallowed up within six months or so. With the like of Halo 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza 6, Titanfall and Sunset Overdrive to enjoy, you'll be well on your way.
Thanks to Frank30uk.
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!
A brand new Xbox One console for £239.99? That sounds like a great way to get yourself ready for Halo 5. This is the best price I've seen for a solus model today by £25. Alternatively, for a mere £10 extra you can get it with a copy of FIFA 16.
Need more excuses? You can catch up on some great exclusive next-gen titles like Titanfall, Ori and the Blind Forest, Forza 6, Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive. In the coming months you can look forwards to Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5: Guardians and much more.
It's a blink-or-you'll-miss-it deal here - an Xbox One console (without a headset) for £200. Perfect if you're looking for a cheaper way to get into the current-gen. There's limited stock though, so be quick!
Yes, it's not 100% gaming related, but we felt it was worth pointing out. If you're an Xbox One owner who likes their sports, this might pique your interest. Now TV are currently giving away 7 days access to the Sky Sports Pass, which grants access to all seven of the Sky Sports channels free of charge. From the looks of it, existing Now TV customers can get in on the action as well, but if you already own the Sports Pass you won't be able to just add a free week onto your existing package.
As always with this sort of thing, you'll need to put in your payment details for this to work, but the interesting tidbit in all of this is that it won't activate automatically - in fact you have 365 days to activate your week's worth of free sports viewing. The offer expires on on October 11th, so get a move on if you want to watch all the football*, all the time (for seven days.) Thanks to Saxon @ HUKD!
*Other sports are available.
Want to know what all the fuss is about with the upcoming Elite Xbox One controller? Well, this latest trailer documents the deep customisation options to be found inside this premium-priced pad.
In addition to button remapping, extra control paddles and swappable d-pads and analogues, you'll be able to adjust the sensitivity settings. Of particular interest is being able to get the triggers to 'fire' sooner in FPS titles, meaning you can get your shot off without having to fully depress the trigger. With all sorts of different setups being needed for different genres, you'll be able to store tonnes of them and be able to switch between two on the fly via a new button. Take a look at the video below and see if the Xbox One Elite controller is that little bit more tempting.Click here to read more...
It's currently one of the many key features for the Xbox One Elite Controller - which costs an eye-watering £129 - but yesterday news emerged that controller remapping won't remain an exclusive perk to the deluxe peripheral for much longer. Director of Program Management for Xbox Mike Ybarra used Twitter to confirm that all controllers for the Xbox One will soon be able to remap its controls.Click here to read more...
You'll either love or hate the new design of the limited edition blue 1TB Xbox One Forza 6 model. With a £34 saving on this deal over rivals sites though, this is the way to go if blue is your colour.
The console even makes a revving engine noise on start up, which sounds either brilliant or like it's just destroyed a disc. Take a listen. Forza 6 is an outstanding game and a must buy for any racer fan wanting to see what next-gen racing feels like. Check out my full Forza 6 review.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
This is a sweet deal for those of you looking into picking up an Xbox One console. The 500GB Xbox One console bundle includes a download code for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, a 14-day Xbox Live Gold pass and a £30 voucher to be used at this Microsoft online store (not the Xbox Live marketplace).
This is a great time to pick up an Xbox One, with Rise of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5 coming in the next few months. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt should last you until then at least. If you want an excellent racing game to put your new console through its paces, I'd heartily recommend Forza 6.
Thanks to blineboy.
[UPDATE: You can get the same deal (minus the Legends token) for just £264 if you use the code HMV5 at Xtra-Vision]
Want to step into the new generation of consoles and sort out FIFA 16 in one go? Then how about this console bundle that includes a 500GB Xbox One, FIFA 16, a Legends token and 1 month's EA Access for £274.95?
A lot of sites are selling the solus console at this price, so you're essentially getting FIFA 16 for free, so this is a great deal for any footy fan wanting an Xbox One. Don't forget, you can get a year of Xbox Live Gold sub for £19.94. Be sure to book this guide too for the latest deals: Xbox Live account deals guide: cheap Xbox Live Gold & Xbox Live Gift Cards.
Thanks to Mal Simons on Twitter for the XV update.

We've ran a few deals this week for these refurbished Xbox One consoles and they sell out fast. I just about managed to snag one myself yesterday. Today's variation of the deal comes with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin's Creed: Unity for £224. You might be able to get it for less though as there's an option to make an offer. Posters over on HUKD have claimed that they've had offers as low as £210 accepted straight away, so try your luck.
This might be a refurbished console, but it still comes with a 12 month warranty.
Thanks to reindeer333.
