LucidSound To Bring Official Licensed Products To The Xbox One Later This Year


I'm yet to get my hands on a LucidSound Xbox One headset to review for the site sadly, but with gaming TV legend Alex Verrey (Big Boy Barry from many a Gaming show if you're old enough to remember) behind the PR, it's no surprise to learn that the company were recently given an official Microsoft License to begin producing headsets for both the Xbox One & Xbox One S.

LucidSound already have three gaming headsets available, those being the LS30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset, the LS20 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset and the more recent LS40 Wireless Surround Universal Gaming Headset. The new range of licensed products promise to offer features tailored to the Xbox gamer, with further details on this and future headsets expected later this year.

Now like I said at the start of this post, I'm still yet to actually get my hands on one of these headsets and see the quality that they have seemed to offer to other reviewers out there on the Internet, so I can't talk from a hands-on experience like those have when covering this news. My one worry for these headsets is what price LucidSound will deem any headset they release in the future now they have the license, with previous headsets (when launching at least, not so much now some time has past)  being more at the high-end price, rather than a budget and affordable headset for your average gamer who doesn't have a bucketload of cash to spend on a headset. Time will tell I guess, and with more headsets out there for gamers to choose from, this can only mean companies working harder at bringing us better products.

HXR Plays - Overwatch Opening Intro + Reaper Gameplay

Today I start a little series on here where I have a little play with 1 of the 21 characters available in the massively addictive game that is Overwatch.

Today sees me show off the opening intro, as well as playing a game with the character known as Reaper. He falls into the offense side when it comes to character selection, and is great if you enjoy a bit of right in your face combat.

Reaper like the other 20 characters in the game has a few specials to play with outside of his standard weapon. Not only do his standard Hellfire shotguns pack a mean punch at close quarters, but he also has Wraith Form (invincible for a short few seconds but not able to shoot), Shadow Step, which is a fancy way of saying teleporting from one place to another, and finally we have his charged special known as Death Blossom. This special sees Reaper spin around for a few seconds while unloading his deadly shotguns, killing anyone who is stupid enough to get in the way.

HXR Blog - One Year Old / Giving back To You Lot (GIVEAWAY)

A year ago today I decided to bring back Honest Xbox Reviews with the hope that people would actually come and read whatever words I typed up on review items that I got my hands on.  Like the little box on the side of the blog has said since this started, I know I'm not the greatest when it comes to forming words into a sentence, but hopefully, my passion and enjoyment of typing comes across in what I do.

I've been doing this now for what feels like forever, with this name being used on a website previously, and then Honest Games Reviews being my writing home. Sure this journey has had its ups and downs over the years, but I still enjoy getting to meet new people on social media and also offering reviews that don't hold back or tiptoe around something being utterly pants because it might end with me being ignored in the future

If you've followed me from day dot (I'm talking HXR first time around) you will know I always try to give back to those who support and re…
