There’s a lot to mull over post-E3, following Microsoft’s barnstorming conference. While the new generation of console hasn’t got a name yet (come on, Microsoft, just pick one already!), Xbox Project
Scarlett nonetheless now has a solid release date, and we’ve learned more about just what it will be able to do. This month we’ve picked through all the details we have so far to bring you everything we know about the future of Xbox hardware on page 8! The recent Summer Games Done Quick has once again smashed it for charity. Find out more about the speed-gaming event on page 12. Then we have news of a new Telltale’s The Walking Dead collection (p14), and finally we’ve got our first real look at Netflix’s The Witcher TV show. Videogames have a poor track record of conversion to great movies or TV shows, so can the series buck this trend?

Either way, we’re intrigued, and we have all the details on page 18 this month.
