My son still prefers to use this, even though he has an elite control, so he can mute his mic quickly.

would I be correct in saying the new controllers don't need this? Also, I don't think iPhone headphones with a mic work on xbox controllers as apple switched the 3.5mm jacks so mics don't work on non-apple products, someone else can confirm that too if true...


Yes this is only required for the 1st generation controllers that didn't come with built in audio jacks.

Could this work with my bose earphones.

This probably says more about me than it does about the game, but I sat throught the intro sequence until "war never forgets" or "War never changes" or whatever it was (I genuinely can't remember and I watched it five minutes ago) and uninstalled it.
It's gong to be Skyrim with guns instead of swords, and by the way America stopped the war, guys, as if that really has any bearing (tbh, that's when I really stopped listening).

I've just completed the opening sequence, really stunning visuals. Then I entered the "vault" and felt mortified to leave that amazing world behind and into the same decade old boring environment where all the rooms and walls look the same. What do I even do now? And they shot my wife and took my baby omg????!

Played this for over 8 days before completing the main storyline recently, and that was without any DLC. An excellent game to get absorbed in though some of the bugs were irritating meaning some side stories could not be completed.
My Mrs loves Far Cry and was gutted that this was taking me so much time and so she couldn't watch me do Primal which she bought me in October. Have now started that along with Battlefield which also took a back seat. She was even more upset as I did FO4 straight after FO3 as that came as a free game in the pack I got.

If your mrs ever becomes not your mrs any more let me know

I paid £30 for this in CeX about three weeks ago and it is superb. The attention to detail across the levels is excellent and the challenges make each level worth replaying.

Definitely worth a punt at £20

Poor list on Xbox One, not worth the money
Maybe for you but think about how much poverty there is in the world and people up and down the country using food banks. Services like this and EA Access allow people to enjoy gaming without ever having to buy a game.

Give a 14 year old boy a free game pass, and he plays for a fortnight. Give a 14 year old boy the unreal engine source code and he can make games for his entire life.

You sound like my Mum, who would force me to eat my tea, because the children in Africa wouldn't think twice about finishing my peas off.

It isn't a particularly good starting bunch of games for the money. Although the free trial is welcome so I have voted hot.

Poor list on Xbox One, not worth the money
love how people are complaining at this, yet your still getting 100+ games for £2 per week.. coming from someone who has most of the Xbox Library anyway, there are a few titles I got from this like DMC Definitive Edition & Screamride, and if anybody remembers back to when EA Access started.. it wasn't amazing from the beginning and it's improved a lot over time, especially with the addition of the 360 EA Titles, over time they'll add and change titles :) also, I found the Games Pass is pretty useful among friends, told a couple of my friends to try the trial so we could play various co-op games like Payday 2, Fable 3, Ms Splosion Man etc
I think the word 'meh' sums up that list of titles. Cheers OP for posting the deal, but I don't think I'll be investing.

the crew was free to download on Xbox live a while back. downloaded, played for about 5 mins, saw how awful the controls were and stupid the game story was then uninstalled. absolutely terrible game if you ask me. better to stick to forza horizon 3, or horizon 2 if on a budget. best open world car game to date.

Thanks, finally bit at a Tenner (that's how cheap I am)


Not cheap - smart.

I really don't see the point in running out and getting a game on launch day (unless its RDR 2). Just wait a while and get the same game cheaper.

I have such a backlog of games to get through, that by the time I get to play them - they've dropped in price anyway.

I got a couple of "As New" Halo 5 Steel books from them which were still sealed (the seal was grubby from where it had had stickers on and removed but still sealed).

Yeah, I took a controller from them in the same descriptive state. It arrived brand new and sealed with a small dent in the box.

great game on pro, it's been patched a fair bit since launch.Worth ~20 of anyone's money.
Soundtrack is good... game isn't
It sucks on PC but the console versions may have had more polish?

Heard a lot of mixed reviews about this game.. I'm still on the fence, maybe someone can sway it for me?

Characters and story are pretty good. But the missions get really repetitive quickly :(

Would steer clear. Incredible amount of glitches and I got locked out from many side missions as a result. Even main missions were borked at times and needed a restart of the console. Music is awesome though :/

Can confirm on Xbox. Never takes long to get a game and always puts a smile on my face. It is different to TF1 but after a while you appreciate the changes they've made. The movement in particular is so far ahead of any other FPS, it makes playing anything other than TF2 quite boring. Also, next (free) DLC drops on 30 May.

What a surprise TF2 is already dowb to £15. Probably got something to do with fact it's crap compared to first one and nobody is buying it.
I thought this was supposed to be good. Alot of members here have confirmed in the past. Missed out when HMV were selling for 20 quid. The beta was OK. What's not to like for 15 or less?


Honestly if you played and really enjoyed TF1 you will hate 2. It's so different to the first it's like a completely separate game. The only actual similarity is the fact that it's a titan. All the weapons, maps are completely dissimilar. Heck even the music and narrator that made the first game are completely gone.

I bought TF2 and sold it within days and I wouldn't play it again now unless it goes f2p or someone gives me it.


Why not just play the first game?


I still do. It gets busy still from mid afternoon.

To dusktildawn - I'd do the same. It's a cracking game I've put hundreds of hours into it and still go back for more. Send me a PM on here if you do buy it and we could party up!

xbox one console controller

Xbox One Entertainment Centre

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: Home Video Console from Microsoft

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.

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 one bundles

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.

Xbox One Technical 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 500GB, 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 1.75GHz) and a full 8GB 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, 500GB 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.

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 1TB 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.

Xbox One Vs. 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.

xbox one more time for gaming

Intrinsic Values

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

As far as processing prowess is concerned, the Xbox One fares slightly better than the PS4. The 1.75GHz AMD 8-core CPU versus the same CPU in the PS4 clocked at 1.6GHz 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 games jump ahead

Storage and Connectivity

In the data storage stakes, both consoles come equipped with 500GB 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 256GB 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 3.56kg, falling short of the PS4 at a slimmer 2.75kg. 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 500GB HDD to a potent 1TB 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.

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.

Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller

The Xbox One S

In August 2016, Microsoft unveiled the successor to the Xbox One - the imaginatively named Xbox One S. This new version is slimmed down and sleeker than its older brother, boasts improved video capabilities along with enhanced processing power.

Here are some of the main ways the Xbox One S differs from the standard version:

  • Size - Microsoft have gone back to the drawing board and reduced the weight of their console by 40%, making it easier to store and carry around.
  • Video - The newer version now features 4K ultra high definition (UHD) video, enabling playback of movies, TV and games in crystal clear quality. You'll notice the difference if you've become used to playing on the Xbox One.
  • Controller - There's even an updated controller. The familiar Xbox button layout has been retained, but with added rear grips and more Bluetooth compatibility with other devices - so you don't just need to use it for Xbox games. It could be used as a TV remote too.
  • Ergonomics - As well as reducing the weight of the Xbox One S, Microsoft have designed it so you can store it vertically (not just on its side).
  • Storage - The previous Xbox One console came with 500GB of hard disk space. For the new version, Microsoft have opted to add a massive 2TB of space, to suit newer, memory hungry titles.
  • Power - The older Xbox relied on an old-style external charger for its power supply. This time around, the Xbox One S employs an internal "power brick", reducing the need to wrestle with cables.
  • An Integrated IR Blaster - Thanks to the integrated IR Blaster on the Xbox One S, you can use the Xbox controller to manage your TV, speakers and DVD player.

The Xbox One S Compared to the PS4 Pro and the Older Xbox One

Why would you choose the Xbox One S over the PS4 Pro? Both systems are top of the range (as of early 2017). However, it's worth noting that the PS4 Pro outperforms the Xbox One S in processing terms and has slightly higher video resolution. On the other hand, the Xbox One S comes with an integrated Blu-ray player - a huge bonus for movie lovers.

What about the older Xbox One? Has the Xbox One S made it obsolete? Not really. There's a price differential between the two systems, which may sway some people. Moreover, while the Xbox One S delivers great visuals, not all games take advantage of the extra power. But if you want HD Blu-ray capabilities, the Xbox One S is the system to go for.

Bear in mind that 2017 or 2018 will probably see the release of Project Scorpio - Microsoft's ninth generation console, which is likely to blow the Xbox One S out of the water. But if you want great specs right now, it's an excellent purchase.

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.
  • 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.

Available Accessories for the Xbox One

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.

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.
