1TB AND 500GB XBOX ONE S ARRIVES END OF AUGUST WITH MADDEN AND HALO BUNDLES

As we already know, from 2nd August 2016, Xbox gamers will be able to get their hands on the Xbox One S in stores. But for some the 2TB console on its own is just not enough.

While there is a notable reduction in the storage capacity of the console itself, for anyone who is interested in this deal, we have the full details on our post.

If you are looking forward to the full release of the game, then you should probably take a look at what he had to say.

FIFA. Every year, without fail, we get treated to the latest iteration of EA Sports’ popular football game. While some would say the series has been lacking in areas the past few years, there is no doubt that FIFA 17 is one of the most ambitious FIFA’s in recent times.

But what can we really expect from FIFA 17? Harry looks into the new features threatening to freshen things up, how the new graphics engine will make all the biggest players (and managers) look as real as possible, and all other bits and pieces that have been brought onto the pitch to make matches in FIFA 17 the most authentic and enjoyable we have ever seen in the series.
