We all love a bit of good news don’t we? And most of the time these days that seems to be in short supply. Luckily though, in the world of Xbox this month there’s plenty to feel good about. First off, on page 8 we report on [email protected] reaching its landmark 1,000th Xbox game released through the programme, that was set up to help independent game devs realise their creative potential and publish their games. Then we report on a good period for Microsoft and Xbox, with news of great console sales and the company’s plans for a play-anywhere games streaming service – all of which means the future of our gaming platform of choice is in very good shape (p12). There’s more to report from Remedy as its forthcoming game Control gets some new but familiar voice talent added, and
Alan Wake is set to return to stores (p14). Finally we report on Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 special editions on page 18, which are upping the ante when it comes to cool, if expensive, collectibles. Come on, who wouldn’t want a £6,000 leather coat as worn by Dante?
