Eurogamer Network launches Outside Xbox

Brighton, UK, 15th August 2012: Eurogamer Network, Europe's leading independent games media specialist, is pleased to announce the launch of Outside Xbox ( www.outsidexbox.com), a new website dedicated to all things Xbox.

Outside Xbox is edited by veteran journalists Andy Farrant, Mike Channell and Jane Douglas and will produce daily video content for the Xbox community.

Andy was formerly an Xbox Live producer working on the famous and award-winning Inside Xbox channel at Microsoft, Channell was previously deputy editor of Official Xbox Magazine, and Douglas was section editor at GameSpot and a regular Inside Xbox contributor.

The Outside Xbox launch is in partnership with Square Enix, who are using the site to promote the launch of their new game Sleeping Dogs, released in Europe this Friday.

As well as coverage of the latest games and trends, the site will feature a number of regular features including a weekly magazine format "Show of the Week".

"We've been fans of Mike, Jane and Andy's work for a long time so it's brilliant to have them join the Eurogamer family," said Rupert Loman, Managing Director of Eurogamer Network. "We're excited to launch Outside Xbox with them and hope to make it one of the world’s leading Xbox gamer communities."

"Andy, Jane and I have long been admirers of Eurogamer and its team, so we're enormously excited to be launching Outside Xbox within the Eurogamer Network," said Mike Channell. "Outside Xbox videos will be innovative, visceral and offer best-in-class jokes about the homogeneity of developer soundbites."

The site is now live at www.outsidexbox.com.
