News Xbox 360 EA Microsoft


Waiting… waiting… waiting for some deals. Oh, hello everyone! Welcome to another episodic freak event of Xbox Live News with Pipper. The beginning of this month yields less than promising deals as most are waiting in anticipation of Microsoft’s next generation console announcement.

New Releases

Whoa, an Injustice: Gods Among Us character for 400 MSP? I suppose that is as reasonable as some of the avatar items these days. Some players would expect a little bit more bang for their buck though. Minecraft advocates will definitely take advantage of the free skin add-on in celebration of its 1st birthday.
