Say hi to Windows Central Gaming

We've been covering Xbox and gaming on Windows Central for a few years now, but our previous linear blog system didn't really support separate audiences for who might be interested in different things. Someone who's interested in the latest gaming trailer perhaps isn't that interested in Windows apps or business laptops, and we always felt there were better ways to serve you guys (and of course, you can always access the old format using

In any case, this is why we've been working long and hard on a new front page for the site, and also a separate entity for our gaming coverage entirely, which can be found right here on

We're still finding our feet when it comes to gaming coverage, but we're kick starting our efforts with a few key aims. First, we want to provide rapid, up-to-date news coverage across both Windows PC and Xbox One. We also want to offer in-depth game reviews that put value for money, gameplay, and software quality at the forefront. We want to ensure that we're providing the latest information on UWP and the Windows 10 Store from a gaming perspective. And we want to make sure you have the best information possible before spending money on expensive Xbox accessories, PC parts, monitors, TVs, and beyond. And finally, provide great exclusives and insider analysis for which Windows Central is known.

Most of all, we want to keep it 100% pure gaming, as we build up a community on our Xbox forums and PC gaming forums, our Xbox Central Podcast, our separate Windows Central Gaming Twitter feed, our Discord server, and our Mixer stream channel. To celebrate, we're giving away an Xbox Elite Controller on our Windows Central Gaming Twitter, so be sure to go and enter!

We're already off to a solid start, but we'd like to hear from you directly as we shape our content moving forward – what would you like to see? What can we do better? How do you prefer your game reviews? What would you like to see more of? Let us know in the comments, or say hi in our forums. And of course, you can always reach out to me on Twitter.
