In a previous roundup when I said that I wasn't expecting any more Xbox One content before the new year, I had completely forgotten about the impending release of a certain addictive peg-related game. After being delayed away from the launch date of the console, the game finally arrived yesterday. We also have one new Game on Demand although, if you're like me, you've probably never heard of it before. There is DLC for eight retail titles, one of which is currently region-exclusive, although this is likely to be rectified tomorrow. Of that DLC, three games add achievements to their list.
