By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
With no new titles due for a little while, this roundup is a bit bleak. There's a single Xbox One pre-order, a few pieces of console DLC and a Windows 8 title that received a title update to make it LIVE enabled.

XBOX ONE GAME EXPECTED TO RELEASE ON 20/01/2015. YOU MAY DOWNLOAD THE GAME FROM XBOX LIVE BEFORE THEN, BUT IT WILL NOT BE PLAYABLE UNTIL 12:01 AM GMT ON THE RELEASE DATE.
