From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.


  1. It’s worth getting the 2TB if your after a xbox but with a lot of the games available for Windows I don’t think it’s worth buying one, at least for me.

  2. Can we assume the new controller will be available on its own on the same day? Really looking forward to getting one for my PC which lives behind the telly.

    • i only have spiders and dust living behind my telly =(

      • I have spiders and dust and a computer! Which gets used to store photos of spiders and dust and babies and games that don’t currently get played :)

      • I have all-sorts of things living behind my telly – in fact, every time I change channel, I find that something else is living there… Bizarre!

  3. The Game trade-in deal for your old Xbox One feels pretty poor – it’ll still cost £199 if you trade your old console and three games in!
