X360 magazine renamed X-ONE for launch of new Microsoft console

The world’s greatest independent Xbox magazine rebrands ahead of Xbox One launch in November

X360, the UK’s best-selling independent Xbox magazine, is changing its name to X-ONE from issue 104, on sale 30 October, ahead of the launch of Microsoft’s Xbox One console on 22 November.

The leading independent Xbox magazine marks its first issue under a new name with over 50 pages of Xbox One coverage, including a buyer’s guide to the Xbox One and exclusive coverage on all of the launch games. Alongside the renamed and redesigned magazine, X-ONE has a new website, XB1.co.uk, where all the latest Xbox headlines, reviews and videos can be found.

“X360 was always about hardcore gamers writing for likeminded Xbox fans and that remains the beating heart of X-ONE,” Jonathan Gordon, X-ONE Editor said. “While our name is changing our commitment to bring Xbox owners exclusive game access, unbiased reviews and industry opinion remains the same. We’re immensely proud of what X360 has achieved in the last eight years and I think X-ONE is perfectly placed to take that legacy even further.”

“With the X-ONE rebranding, updated DVD, launch of the new website, YouTube and Twitch.tv channels Imagine has got Xbox One covered,” added Editor In Chief Nick Roberts. “With some big Xbox One exclusives just around the corner, it’s an incredibly exciting time to be an Xbox gamer.”

Issue 104 of X-ONE goes on sale 30 October and will be available from all good newsagents, in print from  ImagineShop.co.uk and digitally from GreatDigitialMags.com.
