Xbox UK announce two new Xbox One S colours

When the Xbox One S was announced, the usual questions over console colour choices were floating around, and Xbox fans were left wondering whether they would be able to pick up the awesome new Xbox One S in anything other than white.

Well, via Twitter, Xbox UK have confirmed that the Xbox One S will be available in two new colours soon.

Unfortunately no further information was provided regarding release date, price, or storage size, but keep an eye out. I know I’m very tempted by the Deep Blue version…

Get your augment on with Deus Ex controller designs

Grab your pencils, paints and dust off those Photoshop skills because Xbox UK, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are offering to augment your controller.

Open to UK residents, entries must be submitted by August 17 and all you need to do to enter is download their controller template and augment it by producing a Deus Ex Mankind Divided inspired design using your favourite graphics package or by doing things the traditional way and breaking out the pen and ink.

Once you’ve created your masterpiece, you must upload the design to either twitter or Facebook with #AugmentedController. Eight finalists will then be chosen by Eidos Montreal and put up for public voting on August 22.

The wining design will win its owner a Deus Ex Mankind Divided Augmented Edition and four Xbox One S Controllers customised in the winning design – that’s one heck of a prize!

Jump over to the official page to grab your template and to accept the terms and conditions.

Here’s what I came up with:

Xbox UK and EA have just tweeted the chance to get hands on time with Titanfall, two days before the UK launch at an event held over March 12 and 13th in London.

When signing up you will be presented with various time slots, lasting two hours each, over those two days but be quick as it is going to be one seriously popular event so go to www.titanfall.xboxonetour.com and register your details and preferred time slot.

Good Luck!
