There’s nothing different at the top of the UK chart this week. Meanwhile, the PlayStation edition of Minecraft has jumped up to fourth and the Xbox One version to sixth. Tropico 5 limps into the chart this week at 18th!

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending April 25.

Call of Duty is the focus of this week’s Deals with Gold

Deals-with-Gold

It’s all about COD this week for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, with Never Alone and We Are Doomed sneaking in to the Xbox One deals – with only one Call of Duty title discounted, it’s only fair – even if We Are Doomed’s discount is rather pitiful!

The deals are available until April 27. Remember to check your local territory for availability and pricing.

Mortal Kombat X storms the UK chart

Mortal-Kombat-X

Unsurprisingly, Mortal Kombat X has knocked Battlefield Hardline off its perch and taken the UK chart. More surprising is that GTA V has also hopped over Hardline to steal second, meaning the cops and robbers have to make do with third in the chart this week.

Here’s how the rest of the chart looks for the week ending April 18.

Meet the new Guitar Hero Live controller

GuitarHeroLive

So, we’ve seen the Guitar Hero Live announcement and we’ve had some time to digest the changes in the game and how the new controller works with the changed game mechanics.

Let’s have a little look at the new controller, culminating with a short video presentation from FreeStyle Games’ Jamie Jackson, recorded at the presentation event held in New York.

So, here it is. As a plastic guitar fan, I think it looks very functional. The major change is that gone are the coloured buttons, replaced by a sleek looking set of six near the headstock, stacked for chord playing.  The keen-eyed among you will notice the “Hero Power” button where the bridge is on a real guitar. This can only mean one thing. Gone will be the note-missing instrument shake which was, let’s face it, sketchy at best. There’s also a cool new whammy-bar.

Don’t take my word for it, have a listen to the controller presentation below which explains the reasoning why the change has happened.

So, what do you think, like it, or loathe it? Let us know in the comments below.

Guitar Hero Live is hitting your home stage this autumn.

Goat Simulator flocks to Xbox

goat-sim-header

Finally; Double Eleven’s Goat Simulator has stumbled on to the Xbox One and Xbox 360 today for the reasonable price of £7.99.

If you ever wanted to know what the life of a goat is like, then you may want to look into picking this up. The game is a 878.25MB download and will let you live out your wildest goat dreams.

Well… what are you waiting for? Go and be a goat and create more mayhem than a Micheal Bay production!

Look out for our review of this game over the next few days.

Grab some Metro bargains in this week’s Deals with Gold

Xbox One’s Deals with Gold will certainly catch the eye of one or two of you or, at least they should! Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux get a 40% discount, or you can pick them both up as part of the Redux bundle and save 50% – they are well worth your time!

For a change, it’s the Xbox One that gets the better haul of deals too with additional appearances from the Metro bundle and Defense Grid 2… ok so I’ll admit to clutching at straws here!

The deals are available until April 20. Remember to check your local territory for availability and pricing.

Guitar Hero Live announced

GuitarHeroLive

So, that thing that Activision was hinting heavily at earlier in the week, guess what? We were right. They have just announced Guitar Hero Live for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 will be available in the Autumn of 2015.

So, let’s have a look at the features that would warrant this long a wait between Guitar Hero titles.

Guitar Hero Live is being completely reimagined for this gen of consoles and places you centre-stage, with live action, first-person gameplay and reactive crowds. There will be two components to the game, GHTV; the world’s first playable music video network where there are hundreds of your favourite songs to play through across a variety of genre, and Guitar Hero Live (GHLive); which plonks you centre-stage as the star of the live show, with the baying rockers and adoring groupies.

GHTV will allow fans to play in a 24-hour Music TV style arena, singly or against players from across the globe, online. FreeStyleGames, who developed the DJ Hero franchise for Activision, have touted Guitar Hero Live as a living, breathing platform that serves as an ever-growing source for new music discovery while further bringing the party atmosphere back to the living room. Sounds impressive.

Now, one thing you’ll notice from the announcement trailer (yes, I’ve got you a trailer. I am good to you lot), is the lack of colour on the game-board. The controller, as leaked earlier today, is being completely redesigned. This will now feature two rows of three buttons that better reflects the way people naturally play and should ensure fun for people of all abilities. The difficulty is determined with the number of buttons you initially play with, with beginners starting at the bottom row of three buttons, while medium-skilled players can mimic chords without » Continue Reading.

Xbox 360 Preview Program brings 2TB external drive support

Xbox-360

With all the hype around the Xbox One people might have thought that the trusty Xbox 360 has been forgotten.  Fear not though as the Xbox 360 Preview Program has just rolled out a nice little update to its preview members to help compete with its bigger brother.

Microsoft has announced that Xbox 360 Preview Program members can now support 2TB hard drives on their consoles and whats more it will also support two external drives at a time.

Microsoft’s Major Nelson stated on hos blog that this is one of the most requested features from the Xbox 360 community.

“In addition we will also no longer reserve space in advance on your hard drive,” Microsoft said. “If you are using 16GB of hard drive space for games – we will only take 16GB of space. And just like today – you will be able to use two external drives at a time.”

As of yet there is no information on when the update will be available for the public, but it’s confirmed later in the year is most likely.

However Major Nelson also stated that some drives may give performance issues or be incompatible and if you already had space allocated to Xbox 360 data then you would need to clear this first before you could use the drive.

Good news for Xbox 360 owners then, as for one I always found I was running out of space.  So what do you think and what else would you like the 360 preview program to deliver?

Playlogic apologise for breaking Happy Wars

happy-wars-logo

You remember Happy Wars, right? The Xbox 360 title that allows you to roam around and hack your friends to bits? Well, there’s going to be an Xbox One version and Playlogic accidentally released it to some regions yesterday.

It’s been removed from the marketplace now but the problem that this has caused is that anyone who downloaded it, played it and subsequently wants to go back to the 360 version, can’t. One of the things that Playlogic haven’t mastered yet would appear to be cross-platform game saves.

Playlogic have released an apology via the Happy Wars Facebook page here.

In short, this apology explains the issue and how they will rectify it, when the next 360 title update for the game is released.

The developer has a few weeks to rectify any lingering issues they have with the Xbox One version, the rumoured release date is the 24th of April, although, whether they stick to this, is yet to be seen.
