Looking at the Xbox One controller

with No Comments
Controllers are just as important as games, and we’re going to be looking into the Xbox one controller. It’s priced at a whopping £40 which is almost the price for a game, and there’s a good reason for that. The design is different and there’s now precise vibration to your fingertips, which only adds to the action in games. It also sized to rift both large and small hand sizes, and it’s deemed a lot more comfortable for adults compared to the PlayStation 4 controller Kinect is clever, and whilst you can turn the console on just by saying ‘Xbox on’, the Kinect knows when you’ve picked up a controller;...

Should we Expect Price Drops for Next Gen Consoles in the Near Future

with No Comments

This could just be our opinion though, but either way bundle packages may see price drops because... Read More »
