Spotify arrives on Xbox One – But should you buy in to another subscription?
Ah, subscriptions. Every day subscription services in the music and media industry receive new customers, all willing to pay money for a service that gives them something they want in a convenient way - whether that’s through services like Xbox Live and EA Access, or others like Netflix or Amazon. Nevertheless, with so many subscriptions available, and many of us already signed up to more than one, is another subscription service really something you should be looking to tie yourself into?

5 Original Xbox games that must be on the Xbox One Backwards Compatible list
E3 2017 and many people tuned in to Microsoft's E3 conference to find out about the highly-anticipated Project Scorpio. Of course, we now know it as Xbox One X and it will be the world’s most powerful console. As we also discovered during the same conference, not only will the Xbox One X be able to run in native 4K, HDR, blah blah blah, but it will also be able to play games over 15 years old as part of the announced Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility! They confirmed that Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge will be the first game available from the original Xbox and Microsoft have even gone as far to say they may be able to retrospectively add Achievements to first party games. So [...]

Are the free Xbox Games With Gold titles for August 2017 any good?
So here we are with the start of a new month on the horizon and a number of new games being gifted to all Xbox One and Xbox 360 players via the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for August 2017.

4 new arrivals hit Xbox One Backward Compatibility to break the 400 mark – But are they worth the return?
Not so long ago we brought you our thoughts on the last set of backwards compatible titles to arrive on Xbox One as Microsoft closed in on the 400 Xbox backwards compatible games figure. This week has seen another fresh batch of games brought back, which now pushes that number up and over the four century mark. But, the big question is this - are they worth heading back to or should they be left in the past?

What Did The Destiny 2 Beta Get Wrong?
In a challenge similar to that which faced Hercules when he upset his daddy, I've been asked to put together a piece on what Bungie got wrong with the version of Destiny 2 that they recently let us get on hands on with. Now, those of you who have read the pieces I've scribbled about Destiny will know that I am partial to a bit of Bungie's masterpiece. The word "fanboy" has been tossed about, and in all fairness I can't argue with that epithet. However, as I touched on with my opinion piece about the beta, it wasn't a clean sweep or a slam dunk for Bungie this time around.
So what I'm going to do is list the things that I feel need to be tweaked before the full game comes out.

Destiny 2 Beta: Thoughts Of A Destiny Fanboy
The last thing anyone should expect from a piece written about Destiny (or indeed Destiny 2), authored by yours truly, is objectivity. However, I'm going to make a monumental effort to try and not let my blind fanboyism get in the way as I write about the recent beta of Destiny 2, as not everything in the garden is looking rosy.

What Happened To Story DLC For Grand Theft Auto 5?
The success story of Grand Theft Auto 5 is one that many a news outlet has written litanies on. Rockstar came, saw and conquered, propelling their title to the position of best selling non-bundled game of all time with well over 80 million copies moved, not counting digital sales.
The story few tell, however, is how all that fame, praise and money ended up killing – most likely – the prospect of a single player expansion.

6 of the best Xbox One games from the first half of 2017
It seems like it was only yesterday when we were celebrating the arrival of 2017 in style.

6 of the worst Xbox One games from the first half of 2017
So, 2017 is at the halfway point and we’ve seen a whole host of games cross our paths throughout the first six months of the year. There have been great games, there have been good games and there have been average games. But, for one reason or another, there have also been games that are crap, utterly disgusting affairs that are not worth anyone’s time.
Bluntly put, if you’ve got any of the six games found below in your digital Xbox One library, you should be ready to burn your hard drive at the earliest opportunity.
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.
