Still too expensive
Fab cheers op, been wanting to try this out
nice spot :D
On the last mission now, with around 25 Hours of gameplay, I've missed a few things and I havent spent any time dicking about in it.

It's a genuinely fun game to play with a fun story to back it up. Don't even compare it to the first one because theyre not even in the same ball park. I think 3 hours is enough time to try it to get yourself invested.
henryftw
I already have a save but sold the game - you reckon I can play 3 hours tomorrow with my save file :p
Same. Only one way to find out. lol

Good price, but aren't these the ones which only fit the older version controllers as they changed the way the battery cover fits on the newer ones?
I have the one that came with my console (no headset jack) and the new one which has it. Both fit fine and charge fine for me :) I don't see why they would change it as Microsoft haven't updated theirs
I think the battery cover is different on the elite and Bluetooth controllers, and as these clip in using the battery cover they may not fit, my friend said he couldn't use his old 3rd party battery pack when he bought an elite controller
I bought a pack and would fit the old, non 3.5mm but not my Elite! Was surprised as thought it wouldn't be different.


​you can get them to fit the elite. you just need to cut off one one the plastic clip bits in the batteery cover. i have done this and they fit and work perfectly. also it does not effect the battery
Had these for a while, good but they lose power over time, charged one yesterday till the green light shows and it lasted around 1hr 30 mins

If you have a gold membership i would honestly wait, if Dead rising 3 isn't included as a free game this year i would be very surprised

Well, well worth a play through at this price. Thoroughly enjoyable and intense.
This was the first game I had on Xbox One and honestly I still think it's probably the best I've played. I'm not particularly into survival horror or whatever you would call this genre but I really enjoyed this. I'd say if you think you might like it and you haven't played it yet then get it.

Just remember to turn off the setting that means the Alien can hear you through the kinect unless you want to get into arguments when your other half asks you if you want a drink.

Thanks OP. Been working my way through the telltale games. The Wolf Among us is the best. The Walking Dead The worst. GoT, Tales from the Borderlands & BatMan between the two imho (not even going to bother with Minecraft). We'll see how this one stacks up.
I enjoyed it but still found it a bit puzzling in parts, found myself having to use the in-game hints to move the story along.
I also loved the films but this was a real chore to play.
madeofbraille
What is this game like? I remember seeing it ages ago but didn't realise it was made by Telltale.
It's a pretty fun game. I played it on PS4 and no joke it must have crashed over 100 times during the 5 episodes. I took to saving straight away at nearly every checkpoint possible, so when it crashed I hadn't lost much if any progress. I can't speak for the Xbone version on that regard.
I still enjoyed it! And this is a good price X)

With the recent xbox deal you miles well let your gold run out and then your offered a % off renewing your membership. That's probley the reason for cold votes.
Seems to be a lot of the expected cold so is there a better price out there for a gift membership - not for myself.

Unfortunately I think kelbased is right and it's not possible to play this without being online. For me personally that is a huge negative and means I'll probably be giving this a miss too.
I understand the developers want to add extra content/have leaderboards etc but I think that insisting a single player game must always be online (with no option for an offline mode) is unforgivable.
A shame as I loved the previous games and it sounds like this is an excellent instalment in the series. Heat by the way.
Not the case. :)

Been watching some trailers. They keep saying that you have one opportunity to kill the target. How do those missions fit into this?
Those are special missions called 'Elusive Targets'! Basically what happens is that the devs introduce a new custom character to an existing map with his own itinerary and a load of different ways to assasinate him. He's only available for a limited time and you only get once chance to kill him [i.e. you can't replay the mission]. So at the moment my ingame menu screen is showing that I have 88 hours [there's a countdown] to kill someone called 'The Chameleon' on the Colarado, USA map/mission.
Heres the intro vid.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlCzx38XE6E
This changes somewhat with the physical release - all Elusive Target contracts will become available following 31 January.

6ixFoot1
Will there be a non steel book edition?
This is a good question, the answer to which is - it appears not. That actually makes me question whether to purchase right now, as I'd be perfectly happy buying pre-owned or discounted a little way down the line - I'd previously assumed that the SteelBook might be in short supply.

Have these but prefer AA rechargables which definitely last much longer. Also these do fail.
Or, order two for £18.98, including the code.
Pretty cool way of getting this and £8.01 of shopping for £15 delivered within the next two hours is:

Create new amazon account with a different email address, activate prime trial then immediately cancel, login on prime now app, add item and £8.01 of shopping, use code NOWFIVE, remove the £2 tip and boom, item & shopping almost instantly for £15.

Check your eligibility though as the code only works on certain areas.

Does HUKD have a local deals page - :) if not, why not? These deals are valuable but only for people local to the individual store - with only 2 on the shelf, there's a chance that by the time the deal is posted they have 'sold out'. A local deals page would be great and free up time spent on the main deals page.

Sell controller on eBay for ~£20
Buy Xbox one S controller for £35
Net outlay £15 for same functionality but a nice new controller which is better to pay with and less bulky.
Does the xbox one S controller have buttons to change the chat and game music volumes?
You do that by pressing home key it's easily changeable.
On the fly adjustments would be far easier on this adaptor though. I have never changed my volume but I know some people will probably turn it up a bit, down a bit every few minutes!

All for xbone or ps4 as well?
No there was a selection of PS4 and PS3 games as well, just not to many notable games at this point, or overpriced given their age.. Arkham Origins was £15

20 in mine, it's the wild pricing west in asda no uniformity

Even when I found Quantum Break for £10 I saw multiple different prices for Tomb Raider, Destiny and various other games.. feels like they make them up as they go alone of just price depending on how many they have to clear out

Bloodborne is still a fantastic buy at £15.00 in my opinion. One of my favourite games of all time though so I'm a tad biased.

Played on PC with a controller. Not worth the money whatsoever. A lot of graphical glitches which prevented from advancing and was forced to restart at the nearest savegame which were half a level back sometimes. Sub-par story too. Meeeeh
Really liked the 360 version so this 'should' be even better
Great deal, have some heat. But I have a feeling this is going to be on Games with Gold in a few months ;)
Great game that suffers from annoying control issues at times. Still worth picking up though...

The waiting game may payoff for others too.

This is so typical of Microsoft, just like the majority of their offers it's a farce for most of us. If they are going to make an offer like this it should be for everyone not just expired or new customers. They do so much very well and then they let themselves down badly with this sort of thing along with the prices they charge for games on Xbox live store. They have no idea that all they are doing is screwing themselves as well as us. Morons!!!


Im a new customer and im not getting it either :-(


I'm sorry to hear that but neither it seems are many others. Microsoft really need to rethink their marketing strategy for this type of offer as their current one is drastically inadequate (sucks the big one)....

If wanting this for the internal drive:
Assume the internal drive is (cheaper to manufacture & slower) SMR-Shingled Magnetic Recording not PMR-Perpendicular Magnetic Recording, i.e. it's best not to use this type of drive (SMR) for NAS Raid devices, or as a system C: drive.
​It isn't. It's a standard drive.
https://www.heise.de/preisvergleich/seagate-expansion-desktop-2015-5tb-steb5000200-a1253799.html
It's a standard sized 3.5'' drive internally that uses SMR (which is not good). German Link shows this drive as Shingled Magnetic Recording. (Plus, every press release I remember reading for this at time of release, stated SMR).
​Ah my mistake, I was thinking of the black case 5TB. That was an extra thick 3.5" drive which didn't use SMR. Funnily enough it was also cheaper at £100 a year ago.
Not a problem. It's getting more difficult to work out. It should be made explicit on the box - SMR or PMR.


​SMR is a pain for copying anything that is over 30GB in size. The write speeds just drop to around 20MB/s. The 8TB Seagate Archive drive suffers the same issue. The first 30GB are fine because the SMR HDD uses a 30GB SSD cache to speed up writes, but once that's full then you experience the curse that is SMR HDDs.

I'll avoid like the plague unless someone has opened it up and can confirm the drive inside is NOT a ST3000DM01 which are notorious for a high failure rate.
It was specifically the 3TB ones that appeared to be unreliable, supposedly the ST2000DM01 / ST1000DM01 were relatively ok.
My one I purchased awhile ago is labelled as ST3000DM003 in disc management.
Looks like a divan bed.

I got this with the deal for just under £21 (with all dlc for original gears on 360). Not been much of an online player for years to be honest, but picked up 3 months of live just to play this. Online is very good and the campaign is good also.

It's tough to deny the appeal of Microsoft's Xbox One console. With the exception of its minimalist, back-to-basics design and speedier game performance, you can look forward to the same features that made the earlier Xbox 360 such a hit. This in-depth buyer's guide to Xbox One will examine how Microsoft strikes a balance between style and functionality with the Xbox One's simple exterior before taking a closer look at what's going on beneath the hood. For anyone making the tough choice between the Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4, we'll put the two giants shoulder to shoulder to show you that differences between the two are actually few and far between. Finally, you'll discover the pros and cons of the Xbox One in addition to cool features you may not have heard of and additional accessories to take your gaming experience to a whole new level. But before we get to all that, let's take a brief look at the history of the Xbox.

Xbox One buyers guide

The rise and rise of the Xbox

Microsoft made its mark as a formidable player in the video game world in 2001 with the launch of the original Xbox console. Up against Sony's eagerly-anticipated follow-up to their original PlayStation, Microsoft played their trump cards, superior graphics technology and exclusive, Xbox-only title, Halo: Combat Evolved, to steal market share away from Sony and start building its cult following. The demand for the Xbox was so massive, in fact, that Microsoft had no choice but to postpone its European release date to ship consoles to Japanese gaming enthusiasts.

Xbox One Halo Bundle

Microsoft has continued to bring awesome game play and entertainment to new generations of gamers with the release of the Xbox 360 in 2005. This next Xbox iteration gave users a way to access online games, download new demos, and stream media like music and videos; all through its Xbox Live service. Plus, any content saved to the removable hard drive could be played on a friend's console simply by swapping in the new drive. Xbox 360 gamers were also treated to wireless controllers, console colour choices, and new editions of its most popular title, Halo.

Xbox Kinect

Kinect, developed for the Xbox 360 and released in 2010, lets you control gameplay without the need for a traditional controller. Users interact with the game using body gestures and spoken instructions that are detected by Kinect's camera and microphone. Sitting inconspicuously next to your other media appliances on your TV stand, Kinect gets you off the couch and puts your dancing and sporting skills to the test like never before.

Despite Microsoft's expertise in computer technology, Xbox 360 gamers were often confronted by the dreaded red ring of death, making their console unplayable without hardware technical support. Fast forward to today, where you’ll see that the refined, more reliable Xbox One has put Microsoft's hardware failure problems behind them while delivering an eighth-generation gaming experience.

Microsoft Xbox One Specifications and Features

There are a number of factors that help explain the evolution of home game consoles to the current eighth generation, such as higher resolution, enhanced social tools, and greater all-round entertainment options - all thanks to improvements in interface design and gaming hardware. To better stress these advancements, here's a brief overview of the technical specs of the Xbox One:

  • Console design: Xbox One takes on a more streamlined design than its aesthetically-appealing predecessors, looking more like a standard black VCR unit than a highly-developed gaming rig. It also offers greater ventilation via two large top and side vents to prevent hardware faults caused by overheating.
  • Hardware: The Xbox One is equipped with a 500 GB, non-replaceable hard drive and a Blu-ray optical drive. Games are powered by two quad-core AMD processors (total 8 core AMD Jaguar Custom at 1.75 GHz) and a full 8 GB of DDR5 system memory.
  • Software: Two operating systems installed on the drive ensure one set of dedicated resources is allocated to a high performance gaming experience and one set to everything else like apps and navigating the user interface.
  • Controller: The wireless controller also looks cleaner than those shipped with the Xbox 360 and has a more ergonomic design, thanks to comfortable hand contours and minor location changes to the analogue sticks. It can be used on battery power or be plugged into the console using the micro USB charge cable when battery reserves are running low. The intelligent controller can also tell when you're not using it, correspondingly entering a low-power state to further conserve energy for longer game time.
  • Headset: The official Xbox One stereo headset offers clear voice capture with its unidirectional microphone and the detachable headset adapter lets you adjust audio settings effortlessly.
  • Kinect: Greater motion sensing and voice recognition is possible on the Xbox One. This is mainly due to the improved 1080p HD camera resolution and complemented by re-designs in the user interface.

Xbox One – Unboxing

Xbox One Bundles

To save game-lovers from buying expensive games and upgrades after the initial outlay in the console, Microsoft has introduced a number of bundles for the Xbox One. You’ll be able to grab the basic, 500 GB console along with a single wireless controller, and the game of your choice (from a specified list) at the lower end of the bundle package spectrum. Spring a little extra and you can get more games and double the storage. The games included are usually part of a series like the Rainbow Six Siege bundle that comes with two classic Rainbow Six Xbox 360 games and a new title for the Xbox One, for example.

Xbox One bundles

If you prefer first-person shooters in outer space to counter terrorism, there’s a limited edition Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians bundle. It comes with a snazzy metallic 1 TB console and wireless controller, custom-designed in a military style with unique Halo sound effects, Halo 5: Guardians as a full game download and several Halo-inspired extras and animations. All this adds to the deeply holistic Halo experience.

Halo 5: Official gameplay trailer

Xbox One Versus PlayStation 4

Just like the fight between the Xbox and PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 versus PlayStation 3, Xbox One directly competes with PlayStation 4 in the battle for sales in the influential Japanese, North American, and European markets. Unlike previous battles, however, the Xbox One was no match for the PS4, which reportedly sold twice as many consoles as Microsoft's latest offering over the same period since their launch. But as you can read from the Specifications and Features above, the Xbox One boasts impressive technical specs that are on par with the PlayStation 4.

Intrinsic values

Both consoles have comparable system memory, with the PS4 winning out slightly with their 8 GB GDDR5 against the Xbox One's 8 GB DDR5 – the G in this case highlighting the PS4's ability to handle faster graphical processing between the CPU and GPU. With 8 GB DDR5, Microsoft and Sony are over-delivering on available system memory since the latest 1080p games won't demand so much system RAM.

More time for gaming

As far as processing prowess is concerned, the Xbox One fares slightly better than the PS4. The 1.75 GHz AMD 8-core CPU versus the same CPU in the PS4 clocked at 1.6 GHz produces greater processing power but this doesn't necessarily transform into greater performance. Rather, the extra processing power of the PlayStation 4's 1.84 teraflop GPU built around AMD's Radeon technology outclasses the Xbox One's similar spec unit rated at 1.31 teraflops. With the added benefit of GDDR5 modules communicating with the GPU, Sony's PlayStation 4 can render graphics faster and deal with complicated in-game features like shadows and shrubbery. In a number of tests performed by tech review sites and next-gen gaming enthusiasts, the PS4 appears to offer greater image clarity, noticeable only in a side-by-side image snapshot comparison of games.

The games

Speaking of games, the imbalance in total sales between the two consoles could be linked to the variety of games available on the PS4 compared to Xbox One, particularly those created by independent game developers without the backing of an official publisher. This is the clearest example where the PlayStation 4 holds a clear advantage over the Xbox One, since the former has proactively supported self-published games since the console’s launch and Microsoft has been slow to introduce their own developer kit.

Xbox One vs. PS4 storage and connectivity

In the data storage stakes, both consoles come equipped with 500 GB of internal storage as standard, with Sony letting its users replace the hard drive without voiding the warranty. Due to user feedback, however, you can now add extra external storage to the Xbox One as long as the drive is at least 256 GB and compatible with SuperSpeed USB 3.0.

As far as internet options go, both consoles feature gigabit Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity and support 802.11 b/g/n, with the Xbox also supporting the older generation 802.11a band. If you're wondering why Wi-Fi connectivity is important, it is used to stream and play games from a Windows 10 PC. Using different bands can reduce interference issues, while allowing better video and audio quality more akin to streaming over a wired network.

Although you're not likely to be carrying your console around with you, the Xbox One weighs a hefty 3.56 kg, falling short of the PS4 at a slimmer 2.75 kg. The PS4 is smaller than the Xbox One (10.8" x 12" x 2" versus 13.5" x 10.4" x 3.2") and offers less connectivity options; focussing more on game performance than extra features. The Xbox One, on the other hand, sports a healthy collection of ports, including an Xbox One Kinect port, an Ethernet port, an IR blaster connection, HDMI in and HDMI out, S/PDIF for digital audio and two USB ports.

Xbox One Elite

In their attempt to recapture top spot from their rivals, Microsoft worked tirelessly on the Xbox One Elite. No apparent difference can be seen in the console's exterior, but the biggest upgrades include the drop-in replacement of the 500 GB HDD to a potent 1 TB SSD hybrid drive and an advanced Xbox One Elite wireless controller. Apart from double the storage space of the standard Xbox One, combining a traditional drive for storing games and other data with solid state technology for frequently accessed files translates into a very noticeable 20 % boost in game load time, according to tests performed by Microsoft.

Xbox One Elite

The new Xbox One Elite wireless controller gives you customisable design choices like swappable analogue sticks, new D-pads, back pedals, and joystick sensitivity. As a result, the Xbox One Elite wireless controller could be a great solution if you have challenges with finger dexterity and find the standard controller too bothersome to operate.

Weighing the pros and cons of the Xbox One

Despite lagging sales, the Xbox One is still a cutting edge console to rival the PS4. Let's briefly outline the pros of owning one:

  • Games: Xbox and Xbox 360 games are locked to each region they are sold in. The Xbox One doesn't hold gamers to this restriction. This means you can bring and run your game discs on holiday and play on any Xbox One unit overseas. Note that this does not include digital content or games from China.
  • Reliability: This is a big one. Too many support tickets raised on the Xbox 360 meant that Microsoft had to fix issues with overheating, which they have done with a better cooling system and increased ventilation for non-stop game play.
  • Bundled accessories: All Xbox Ones come bundled with a Kinect sensor, a headset for chatting online, and an HDMI cable for advanced picture quality.

Xbox One: Headset

  • Health: With a more accurate motion sensor, Kinect on the Xbox One can monitor your heart rate and make sure that you're working out at the right pace during cardio sessions.
  • Apps: Microsoft offers the greatest selection of apps in the games console world, including YouTube and Netflix. Up to four apps can be running at the same time, for true multi-tasking.

It's not all good news, though. Sadly, the Xbox One still fails to deliver in the following areas:

  • Backwards compatibility: Xbox and Xbox 360 games are not universally backwards compatible with the Xbox One, although Microsoft may address this in the future. But the PS4 isn´t backwards compatible as well.
  • Always-on internet: Microsoft originally told users to have a constant internet connection to use the console. Now no longer the case, after a colossal backlash from angry users, you still need to enter offline mode and download games to the HDD to play offline.
  • Design: The advantage of its sleek, ventilated design means it won't overheat and fail. The downside to this reliable design is that it can't be placed on its side and save space on your desk or TV cabinet.
  • Expensive membership: In order to get involved in multi-player games and join in with players around the world, you need an Xbox Live Gold account, which comes with a hefty annual price tag.

Streaming services on Xbox One

Cool Features of the Xbox One

Whenever Kinect is connected to the console, it remains alert and ready for any vocal command you give it. Simply say "Xbox" followed by one of over fifty voice commands to control functions on the Xbox One. For example, if you say the words "Xbox watch TV", the Xbox One will respond by entering TV mode through your TV set-top box. If you add the channel name to the command, it will automatically turn to that channel - no more hunting for the remote down the back of the sofa! Other commands include volume control, music playback, internet browsing, launching apps, and power on/off options.

Personalisation options on the Xbox One interface mean you can tailor your home screen to display your favourite apps, games, TV shows, and music tracks. But it's not restricted to one user. Anyone who signs in can configure their own personal interface with the aforementioned options as well as changing the Xbox One dashboard background with a custom image, a saved screenshot, or even showcasing one of your in-game achievements. If tiles are getting in your way, you can also adjust the transparency levels to allow the background image to show through.

Available Accessories

Any good games console will provide a wide range of accessories to enhance your gaming experience. For music lovers, the Xbox One supports wireless guitar, microphone, and drum kit controllers while the Xbox sound bar channels audio around your room without the need for several wall-mounted speakers.

Wall mounts are available, though, if you want to place your Kinect sensor in a more dance friendly spot on your wall above or below your flat screen TV. The other benefit to this is that you'll be able to move more freely, rather than trying to aim your movements directly at your console located on your TV cabinet.

Rev heads can simulate the driving experience with steering wheels, gear stick, and foot pedals, while driving chairs bond these three functions together in a drive-friendly chair. This is perfect for running countless laps and taking sharp turns on top racing titles, like Forza Motorsport 6.

If the bundled Xbox One headset isn't up to your usual high standards, fans of online multi-player games can communicate better with team mates and opponents during campaigns with the advanced noise cancelling and chat control features built into high-tech wired and wireless headphones.

Where to get an Xbox One

Opting for the Xbox One will come down to a few essential criteria. It has plenty to offer for the casual gamer seeking a modern, all in one game and entertainment package thanks to its interactivity with both TV sets and Windows computers as well as the bundled Kinect unit. Hard core game fans will appreciate the next-gen graphics and improved reliability over the Xbox 360. For an extra investment, the Xbox One Elite offers speedier game load times, while the wireless controller is worth considering if you need to take pressure off uncomfortable hand and finger placements.

eBay and Amazon are just two of the big merchants selling the Xbox One online, usually offering good discounts on starter packs, as well as unique bundle packs during Christmas time and Black Friday. Many high street stores like Toys R Us and Argos are also giving customers the chance to grab a bargain, often selling the console cheaper on the internet than in store.
