Ubisoft said these titles will be among six games released for Xbox One in the system’s first year. Customers can expect a mix of new ‘episodes’ of existing franchises, as well as new IPs and digital titles.

“The next generation of consoles will reinvigorate our industry and make it possible for us to deliver incredible new entertainment to gamers,” Ubisoft co-founder and CEO, Yves Guillemot, said.

“Our teams are using the innovations in connectivity, immersion and social gaming included in Xbox One to create original and memorable next-gen gaming experiences.”

Ubisoft will reveal more of its scheduled lineup and plans for the new console at the E3 trade show, an event for computer and video games-related products which is being held in Los Angeles from 11-13 June.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
