prif reveal a number of new and exciting videogame accessories for Xbox One, PS4 and more!

If there were ever a team of guys who were likely to make a big splash in the videogame accessories pond, then the team at prif would be there ones.

Filled with industry veterans, prif know that gamers will only buy products that function as fully intended, worrying about the cosmetic side at a later date. And so the arrival of a number of new products on Xbox, Playstation and mobile look set to hit the scene in a big way.

From humble thumbsticks right up to the complexities that a gaming chair brings, the lines that prif will be releasing soon should be something to keep an eye on. We certainly will be!

New gameplay trailer and screens released for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5

Ah Tony Hawk. Whilst we have had a wonderful time with numerous Tony Hawk’s titles over the years, we have to admit to thinking we’d never get to experience the grinding and sliding of a Pro Skater game again, especially not on Xbox One.

But Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is on its way to hitting our consoles and the latest gameplay trailer and screenshots show it off to its um, very best. Ish. Kind of.

Go and take a look for yourselves! Like what you see?


Exclusive Q&A interview with Night Light Interactive regarding Whispering Willows on Xbox One

When we heard Whispering Willows was making its way to Xbox One, we just had to find out more. So getting the chance to throw some questions at two of the team involved in bringing the horror puzzler to Xbox One wasn’t something we were going to turn down in a hurry.

Have a read and see how Night Light Interactive and Abstraction Games will be ensuring that Whispering Willows on Xbox One is going to be a hit.

Win the official Mad Max Magnum Opus Mustang with Warner Bros!

If there were ever a competition to get involved in, then it’s the one that Warner Bros have come up with to celebrate the arrival of their upcoming title, Mad Max.

It doesn’t involve a trip to a swanky hotel, nor does it give you the chance to play the game early (although we’re guessing you’ll be given a copy of the game if you win). It doesn’t even cross the pond to allow those in the United States entry, instead limiting itself to a few European countries.

It does however give you the chance to win a car. But not any old car..a fully road legal version of the Mad Max Magnum Opus Mustang no less.

A look at the FIFA cover stars over the years!

There has been much furore over the inclusion of Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson accompanying one of the world’s greatest ever players on the front cover of FIFA 16. We felt it would therefore be a great time to take a look back at the FIFA covers from yesteryear, allowing us to reminisce over the good old days of David Platt, David Beckham and Edgar Davids.

Some of the inclusions may well shock you! We’re looking at you Jason McAteer.

Never Alone expands with Foxtales on Xbox One, PS4 and PC

Usually we wouldn’t care too much for a few new levels being added to an indie game. But Never Alone is different.

‘Foxtales’ will expand the original Never Alone title with a number of new levels, bringing in five new Cultural Insight videos aimed at telling us a tale, giving us the chance to negotiate our way across more puzzles and teaching us more about the Alaskan way of life. Whilst we were slightly disappointed to not be able to give Never Alone full marks in our review, we’re already looking forward to the expansion pack…if only so we can get to grips with Nuna and Fox once more!

So, did you miss anything? Let us know what were your favourites in the comments below.
