Haven't pre-ordered your Xbox One? Fear not as Tesco UK is selling stock at midnight

10

The Xbox One launch is going to be massive. Stores are struggling to keep up with pre-orders (I've personally had my own order put in "queue three" with my local GAME store), but fear not if you've yet to pre-order the console. UK supermarket chain, Tesco has some stock put to the side at its Extra stores that will go on a first come first serve basis.

Require a Doctor's Note to pull a sickie for tomorrow? Xbox One has you covered

57

Tomorrow's the big day (unless you reside in New Zealand and Australia). The Xbox One will be launching in multiple markets on November 22nd and it's not farfetched to assume everyone's real excited to get their hands on the next-gen console.

The only issue is that the launch day is a Friday, but what if you could have a Xbox One Doctor's Note to pull a sickie and get out of whatever is planned for you?

Ninja Jump, an upwardly mobile Windows Phone game

Ninja Jump is a simple, mildly challenging Windows Phone game that has you running up walls, dodging enemy ninjas and other dangers.  Consider it an infinity running game that has you running up the walls instead of across the landscape.  The higher you climb, the higher your score. 

Graphics are nice (although tiny), game pace quick and overall Ninja Jump is not a bad choice if you are looking for a casual game to help you pass the time with.

Nokia Lumia 2520 Review

Nokia is bringing their first Windows RT 8.1 tablet to market, but is it the right choice?

In a few hours, Nokia’s first Windows RT 8.1 tablet goes on sale in the US on Verizon (AT&T gets it just 24 hours later). It’s a momentous step both for Nokia and Microsoft, who so far have had a tough sell with the RT. In fact, Microsoft and Nokia are the last two manufactures to offer the stripped down version of Windows, with other OEMs opting for the more powerful 32-bit version on an Intel Atom or i5 processor.

So does Nokia have what it takes to spark some life back into the Windows tablet market? And what about Microsoft’s own Surface 2? Read on for our full review of the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.

Mint for Windows Phone arrives in the Store, but you can’t have it yet

152

It looks like today wasn’t going to all be about Instagram and Waze, as the official Mint app (www.mint.com) was also close to release. At least, that’s what the November 20 Store listing from Intuit Inc. suggests. Mint was announced as coming to Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 back in June and it looks to be readying for launch. The popular financial management app is wanted by many who rely on the service, especially to access it on the go.

Reader of the site Travis B. passed on the link to us, which also has a single screenshot from the forthcoming app. However, if you click to download Mint, you are met with an error stating you don’t have permission to download, hinting that this is not yet public.

It's already set in stone that Microsoft's next-generation console, the Xbox One will require a day one patch - just like the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, with the next Xbox, you'll not be able to play any games (or really do anything at all) until you've installed the update.

Luckily, should you be afraid that something may go wrong on the day to prevent you from getting on with some gaming, Microsoft has made an offline version of the day one patch available for manual installation via a USB drive.
