It's been a long time coming, but it is with great pleasure that I announce that Xbox Resource is finally back and looking fresh with a brand new update. You'll notice straight away that a lot has changed, and rather than go into it all here, feel free to check out the additional link on What's New at the bottom of this page. That's not all though because there are still a few features which haven't been released yet that will be revealed once they are complete - we didn't want to have them hold the rest of the site up so we hid them away for a while. Keep checking back from time to time to see when these develop. Notice - Please bear with us whilst we work on getting everything back up to speed - such as the news stream - feel free to explore what is here in the meantime though. Also we would appreciate it if you reported any bugs or just simple suggestions to us - we appreciate that not everything will be running smoothly right from the start so the earlier we know about things the quicker we can rectify them. Let us know what you think in the comments! Thank you for being ever so patient and let's hope we can really get this going again! Dan Wheeler (x2i) Admin @ Xbox Resourcexboxresource.com/whatsnew...

Today saw the release of two new games - Real Football 2013 and Real Soccer 2013 (depending on which region you live in) on the Windows Phone 8 platform - and not only that but they are free to download!

You can read up more about the games below:

The newest edition of the hit football simulation is back to score another win for the franchise with a whole new set of moves.
Take part in the most immersive football simulation and show that you are the best on the pitch. Reinforce your team by developing your club's facilities, hiring new staff members, dealing with sponsors and more.
Join football legends like our cover athlete, Falcao, on the pitch. YOU ARE FOOTBALL, YOU ARE REAL FOOTBALL!

Take control of your team on the field. Starting with a rookie team, you'll need to improve your players' abilities to reach the top league and compete against the best teams in the world for the championship.

For the first time in a Real Football game, see personal names and portraits of over 3, 000 top players thanks to the official FIFPro licence. Updates of the game will keep your game up to date with the most recent player transfers and roster changes.

The best teams in the world have the most modern facilities. Get your players in shape by developing your training grounds to increase your players' physical, technical and tactical skills. Earn more money and attract fans by expanding your stadium, filling it with shops and signing big-name sponsors.

Smooth and realistic graphics make every player come to life on your screen. Witness over 700 motion-capture animations as you take on an improved AI for a TV-like experience with spectacular effects and cutscenes.

Note that there are actually two different versions of this game depending on your region - both of which are free and if you're that way inclined, the achievements are separate for each.
