Banned If You Do, Banned If You Don’t: How Microsoft Can Stop You From Playing Your New Xbox One Games

Microsoft has confirmed that the new Xbox One will prohibit all access to your games connected to your Xbox Live account IF you get banned from Xbox Live.

This recent confirmation comes from Microsoft’s own twitter account: @XboxSupport1.

This ban also ties into any accounts that might be sharing your games i.e. your sibling/family/friend will lose access to the game. 

Whether this ban will completely block all the accounts on your Xbox One or solely the account in question is not yet clear.

PS4 vs Xbox One Vote Held By Amazon, PS4 Winning by 94% – Insane!


Earlier this week the internet exploded into a flurry of activity as many watched Sony leisurely stride towards success, and an almost guaranteed win, following their more comprehensive unveiling of their PS4 console.

The internet reacted without a moment’s hesitation and plastered Sony’s victory lap across the web with the help of the much loved GIF and plenty of crudely edited screen caps and pictures. As ‘that day’ became history –both figuratively and literally- there have been plenty of battles between ‘console loyalists’ who have been aggressively backing the player they have invested the last 7 years of their time and money into.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII leaked Gameplay Pays Tribute To ‘YRP’

Ahh- the beauty of having a smart phone and or digital camera on hand and access to a roaming internet connection.

'The Division' Is Ubisoft's Second New IP. It's Also An Open World RPG - Go Figure!

'The Division' is Ubisoft's second original IP announced just moments ago at E3.

The game is being developed by Ubisoft's Massive Entertainment and is a next-gen open world, on-line RPG. 

Ubisoft reveals new IP 'The Crew' - An MMO Racing Game...Of Sorts.

Ubisoft unveiled a new IP coming to the next gen consoles called 'The Crew'. This next gen game is being developed by Ivory Towers and Ubisoft Reflections (the team that brought us Driver: San Francisco) and is essentially a racing game MMO. 

Update: Mirrors Edge 2 Lives! IT LIVES!

UPDATE 10/06: Geoff Keighley of (@geoffkeighley) tweeted that the new Mirrors Edge trailer shown at this years E3 is not actually Mirrors Edge 2, but in fact an origins story. 

His tweet came shortly after EA made a press release following the end of their E3 presentation.

This announcement would explain why the main character, 'Faith', was getting her iconic tattoos applied during the trailer. So whilst it may not be a sequel the fact that there will be another Mirrors Edge is still something to be excited by.


ORIGINAL: EA's, recently considered -rather dramatically- the worst company of the year, ended their 2013 E3 presentation with the biggest show of love to fans in a long time.

Mirrors Edge 2 is now official!

Saint’s Row IV trailer: A Tour De Force Of Ridiculousness - And Introducing Keith David as Keith David!

Volition’s Saints Row series has always been the absurd contemporary to Rockstars’ more serious GTA.

For three instalments now they've been able to tap into a special pool of creativity reserved mostly for those who spend their free time attempting to be inspired after hours of heavy drinking, getting high, and intense heat stroke. They have never shied away from adding more degrees of “bat-shit-craziness” in the name of entertainment and for the sake of our pleasure.
