Just seen that the leaked news last month about a special edition Union Jack Xbox 360 package has been confirmed by Microsoft. It’s the same white hardware and extra stuff as you get in the older Xbox 360 Family Pack: a white 4GB Xbox 360 S console a white Kinect sensor 2 white wireless controllers Kinect Adventures Kinect Sports 3 months’ Xbox Live Gold membership The only extra to what they’re calling the “Celebration Pack” is that it comes with free Union Jack skins for all the hardware, so that you can make it look like this: That means you [...]
I’ve just found out on OXM online that the Gears of War Lancer and Hammerburst avatar items are no longer available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Apparently a new policy came into effect for all gun-like avatar accessories on the Xbox Live Marketplace from January 1, 2012. If you’ve already bought guns for your avatar, you should still have those, but it looks like you won’t be getting any more. What a load of bollocks! I am an adult Xbox 360 gamer and I don’t see the point of this ban. They put age limits on these gun games so why [...]

But at the same time, I know how it goes when they bring out a new version of a game I love. Here’s one example: Burnout Revenge was the most fun driving game of its time for me.

Is it just me, or [...]
The graphics (and the physics) are beautiful, the interactivity is a big step up from the previous generation, and it looks like I’ll be getting it for the Animal’s birthday.
Overall rating: 1/5 Best points: lots of playable characters; controller configuration Worst points: no 3D gameplay; can’t see opponent during special moves. I hired Marvel vs Capcom 3 (Xbox 360) from Lovefilm rather than buy it outright. I was looking forward to this title coming out, but was really disappointed after having a few goes on it. I hoped it would’ve had the same type of stuff as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe (Xbox 360) had going for it, with 3D fighting and Freefall fighting. But Marvel vs Capcom 3 is all 2D gaming until you do your special moves… Then [...]
