Xbox One Owners Ignored With Latest Pre-Order Incentive For Sniper Ghost Warrior 3


A few days ago the guys behind Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 decided a little pre-order incentive boost was needed to boost sales of their upcoming game, little did they know (amazingly) how peed off this would make a section of the gaming public they were releasing it to.

You see, CI Games thought a season pass edition ($29.99 worth of content says the website) would be a great idea, but that edition has one flaw, they decided to make it available only to those pre-ordering on the PC and PS4, ignoring the Xbox One portion of their market without even making note of why they were missing out. Now while it's normally easy to ignore little bits of console exclusive DLC, many fans have let their feelings known about this on Reddit and Twitter and such, making this become a game many that maybe were going to check out, now become something they will flat out ignore when it comes to its release on April 4th. You can see the DLC that will be included in this free PC/PS4 season pass in the image below, which will no doubt be DLC on the Xbox One version too, but with Xbox One Owners having to dig into their pockets again if they want to try it out. As you can see it offers two single player expansions, as well as two new maps for the online portion, so it isn't pointless DLC at all.

We tend to see these console exclusive deals for what many would say "bigger games" but it certainly seems a very odd choice for a game as what many see as the ugly looking sibling when it comes to games with Sniper in the title, let alone one that has a release way before this game will hit shelves.

Like I say, no one has really come out yet and said if this is because a company has paid for such an exclusive deal, or it's just silly stuff from the people behind the game. A statement on the blog post announcing this news also seems to act as if Xbox One gamers buying the game mean nothing to them either, with the CEO of CI Games, Marek TymiƄski, saying "We have a long-term investment in our community and believe that this season pass is a huge value to them" Making those excluded Xbox One buyers of the game feel even better there Marek, great job. Hopefully both Marek and those at CI Games see sense if this isn't any sort of exclusive deal and fix it before its too late.

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.

Review - Venom Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack

If you thought my last review about a charging dock must have been hard work to make an interesting read, how do you think I feel doing it for a Twin Rechargeable Battery Pack? You have already read (I hope) my thoughts on my previous way of getting all that power to my controller of many worlds, with this one being less shorter than that just because this pack is a lot more basic when it comes to what you get in the box. It's also worth noting that for a few quid more you can hook yourself up with the docking station version of this pack if you wish, so be sure to check out links to both products at the end of this post (neither of which will give me anything if ordering off. Just so you know).

I've dealt with Venom a few times in the past when it comes to reviewing their items. With me being lucky (depending on how you look at it) enough to getting my hands on some of their headsets and reviewing them elsewhere in the past. The one worry I had spending some money on a Venom…

You can now download the two brand new choices seen in the title above on your Xbox One and 360, as late last night they were added to Games With Gold section of your console. I'm really keen to get digging back into Forza Horizon myself, but Earthlock is always worth a look, as with it being free you don't really have nothing to lose. Here are both the trailers and links for you to go get downloading. Let me know what you think of either game in the comments below or over on the Twitter & Facebook accounts.
