Welcome to a brand-new series of articles where we look back throughout the history of Xbox and celebrate the games on their anniversaries. First on the list is the original Mass Effect, which celebrated its tenth birthday this week.

Xbox One vs Xbox One X – Can you really spot the difference?
So I went all in. New Xbox One X, new 4K TV and a new smart kettle. My girlfriend thinks I’m having a midlife crisis, but I’ve told her that I’m winning at life. So much so that I haven’t seen her for three days. But was it worth it? Was the expense, the emotional toil and the huge indecision making worth it for some shiny new graphics? Well… yes it was.

Exclusive interview with Martin Korda as he speaks about FIFA, Destiny and Fable!
It would be fair to say that Martin Korda may not be the first name that springs to mind when thinking of video game writers.
However, a quick look through his credits and you will see he is responsible for such stories as The Journey on FIFA 17 and 18, Destiny: The Taken King and Fable: The Journey as well as an impressive back-catalogue. You may then start to understand why we were so keen to sit down and have a chat with him at the Yorkshire Games Festival:

Exclusive gaming is harming the industry – let’s bring the gaming communities together!
It’s a war that’s been raging on since the dawn of the console existence. In recent years it’s turned some parts of our global community so toxic that even Chernobyl feels like a safer place to be, and yet in an era capable of showcasing some of the finest works of art within its many games, the console which you play on is still a subject that’s enough to add the fuel to the fire behind hundreds and thousands of gamers, dividing opinion entirely.

A Message of Hope For Those Without the New Xbox One X
All I’ve been reading about lately is the Xbox One X－or X.B.O.X.
I’m seeing it everywhere and it can’t be my fault. Even when I want to learn more about some games, it becomes mostly about how well the title plays on the new machine. If you too are feeling left out, then know that you aren’t alone.

Should you buy an Xbox One X without a 4K TV?
At midnight on the 7th of November, I was once again stood in the queue at my local GAME store, awaiting the handing over of my shiny Xbox One X Project Scorpio console. After being handed the surprisingly heavy bag (this thing is a lot smaller than my OG Day One Xbox One, but weighs a lot more), I hot footed it home and plugged it in to my old and trusty TV. Well, when I say old, it’s about 8 months old, but when I broached the subject of a new 4K version with the wife, I was slapped down in no uncertain terms. Somehow I ended up buying my son a new bed just for even thinking about the act of buying a new TV. I'm not sure how that works, but there you go! Anyway, the collected [...]

Star Wars Battlefront II – Tales from the EA Access Trial on Xbox One
Duuh Duuh da da da Duuh Duuh da da da Duuh Duuh dun-dun-dun-duuuuh!
That’s right guys, it’s almost here, it’s almost time to jump back into the beloved Star Wars universe once more and join the battle in Star Wars Battlefront 2. That is unless you’re an EA Access subscriber of course, as the Play First trial has already given us the reigns to run free in interstellar battle for ten whole hours over the past few days. As one of those subscribers there was no way I was going to pass up the opportunity to jump into one of the years most anticipated shooters. So, after ten hours of combat in a galaxy far far away, here are my early thoughts on Star Wars Battlefront 2.

The Sims 4 – Tales from the EA Access trial on Xbox One
Try before you buy has been a marketing scheme that has worked wonders for consumers over the years. In gaming however, and in the UK particularly, our local Blockbuster and Choices stores that allowed game renting are no longer a reality and the closest we get to try before you buy is the EA Access App that’s available to Xbox One players. Downloading the trials of upcoming games not only gives us the opportunity to play the finished product several days before release, but also allows us to get a general feel for everything we can expect when the game finally arrives. The Sims 4 is the latest game to take advantage of the EA Access Play First trial, so after years of waiting for the [...]

What new Xbox One and Xbox 360 games are ‘In Stores This Week’? – 13th-19th November 2017
It’s the start of a brand new week, one which looks to bring to us a couple of huge sequels, a remaster and a title being ported to console in all its former PC glory. There’s plenty to choose from, so let’s have a gander at the new games ‘In Stores This Week’ for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Having been Xbox gamers since 2002 when the original big black box hit the UK, taking in all the 360 years and now being overly excited for the One, we could never find a place that would only cover the interesting, exciting stuff from the world of Xbox. Hence, TheXboxHub was born.
Covering only the best in the latest news and reviews for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One, we aim to be a one stop hub for all your Xbox needs, without all the useless guff that you really don’t want to know about.
This site is part of the official Xbox Community Network, meaning the games we get to review come from the very highest source… Xbox themselves!
