New screenshots prove that Pure Pool is almost ready for Xbox One

29

Earlier this summer, UK-based developer VooFoo Studios and Ripstone (who also published Stick it to the Man) announced That Pure Pool would be coming to Xbox One as part of the ID@Xbox program. Pure Pool is set to be the first pool game (and I don't mean the kind of pools that The Sims 4 lacks) on Microsoft's latest console. The Playstation 4 and PC versions landed in July, but the Xbox One version has seemingly been stuck outside of the pool hall, waiting for the bouncer to let it in.

It looks like the line has been moving for Pure Pool after all, because we just got some fresh Xbox One screenshots in today. The creators even promise that a release date will be announced within the coming weeks. I'm betting mid-late November. That's prime pool game season, if you ask me. Especially because it'll be too cold to hop in the pool outside by then. Keep reading to check out the new screens and details!

Deadly Racer, blast your way through traffic with this Windows Phone game

10

If you've ever had the urge to strap a fifty caliber machine gun to the hood of your car and blast your way through rush-hour traffic, the Windows Phone game Deadly Racer might be a gaming title worth trying.

The 3D racer calls upon you to work your way through traffic, destroying vehicles to earn points and eventually unlock vehicles that are more powerful. The endless track is full of targets to destroy both from your lane of traffic and any oncoming vehicles.

Steering controls will take a little time to get used to but nothing impossible. Available for low memory devices, Deadly Racer does have a certain level of appeal but could also use a little fine-tuning.

Welcome to Windows Central!

Welcome to Windows Central!

We have a new name! We began as WMExperts back in 2007 covering Windows Mobile, changed our name in late 2010 to WPCentral to reflect Microsoft's next chapter with Windows Phone. Today, we are once again moving forward with Windows Central.

The Number One Community For EVERYTHING Microsoft

It should be clear now that coming into 2015 there is just one Windows, running on the Surface, Xbox One, PCs, laptops and even your phone. At the urging of many of our loyal and active readers, over the last year we have steadily ramped up coverage — beyond our historical Windows Phone focus — to also cover Xbox, Surface, and general Microsoft news. The response to the expanded coverage has been excellent and this past year has also seen the site and our community grow by leaps and bounds. Amazingly, WPCentral is now not only the top Windows Phone site in the world, but we are also one of the top Microsoft sites too. The fact of the matter is if you own a Windows Phone, you are likely to possess (or be interested in) the growing ecosystem of Microsoft products.

We want to continue the momentum that's already underway and changing from WPCentral.com to WindowsCentral.com reflects our expanded mission (not to mention Microsoft recently dropped the Phone from the branding on new Windows phones). Our goal and mission is simple - we'll be working our hardest every single day to make this community and resource the best destination around for all users of Microsoft-based products.
