is the Founder, Administrator and Main Developer of Xbox Resource.

nspire - inspired by the Wrestler Jeff Hardy whom he was a fan of in his younger years.
is the Public Relations Manager for Xbox Resource and x2i's Right Hand Man in running the site.
Luke's role aside from the everyday running of the site alongside x2i, is to liaise with outside companies in terms of promoting, obtaining assets for the latest games as well as potential review oppurtunities and competition giveaways.
Fair enough, here's how it started... The site wasn't initally called Xbox Resource to begin with but there is a funny story behind how it all started.
I began putting my web developing skills into use on a personal project by the name of x2i4eva, it was a place where I could put all my work and Flash Movies/Games that I used to make. It got quite a good reception and was home to one of my most popular games (albeit quite a buggy and unfinished one) - Sonic Smash Brothers.
Meanwhile a friend of mine by the name of Sam Hadfield (smad69)
was big into the Xbox 360 whereas I wasn't too fussed about it, he kept begging me to get one but in the meantime asked if I could make him a subdomain of x2i4eva known as the Colonel's Corner - purely because his Xbox Avatar looked like the KFC Colonel. It was a copy of my main website but styled differently and made so he could post his own stuff on it without affecting mine. He chose to make it about Xbox 360 news and content and before long he started to get more hits there than my own site did.
I caved in and bought an Xbox 360 and before you know it I was hooked too and I wanted to become part of what Sam had going with his domain - so in July of 2008 we agreed to switch it entirely to his project, ditching x2i4eva as a website and focusing on Xbox related content - and with it, a new title by the name of Xbox Resource.
Whether you believe it or not the staff here have lives outside of Xbox Resource and these have sometimes conflicted with the ability to work on the site. Everything from relationships ending and new ones forming, the fact that we have day jobs as well, to just pure lack of motivation at some points in our lives. However the site has prevailed throughout and hence we are back and better than ever!
