The Xbox One Has Landed!


Yes indeedy, boys and girls. Microsoft has officially launched Xbox One and a new generation of gaming is underway as the ‘Big Three’ console manufacturers now have their latest home video game boxes fighting for consumer dollars on store shelves together for the first time.

22 games, 10 being exclusives, have launched alongside Xbox One, including first-party standouts like Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, and Ryse: Son of Rome, third-party heavy hitters like Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, as well as more casual fare like Powerstar Golf, Skylanders SWAP Force, Zoo Tycoon (I’m actually very excited about this!), and Xbox Fitness. Unfortunately Peggle 2 was recently pushed out of the launch lineup, but is still expected to release in December.
