I know right… bizarre? It’s all good though, Microsoft have come up with a clever way to still promote Activision’s new title, launching next week. Introducing, the Destiny fragrance from Xbox… Ok, so it’s not actually been outed as to why Microsoft haven’t been allowed to advertise the highly anticipated new IP from the previous makers of Halo, Bungie, but we c...[Read More]

At the end of the day, no matter what side of the fence you sit on, we all have one thing in common… A passion for gaming.

With Gamescom 2013 finally drawing to a close last Sunday, we’re sure everyone’s had enough time to digest the latest information regarding the next-gen.
