What's Out This Week: May 27th (North America)
Posted by Anthony Bacchus
So you're browsing your local retailer's Xbox One and Xbox 360 section and have no idea what new games were released this week. No one seems willing to help and you feel alone and scared. Surely, there must be a way — an easy way — to get the info on the latest releases. Rest your worried head young Spartan, because at pX we got you covered on what's hitting retail stores and the Games Store.
Watch_Dogs (Xbox One / Xbox 360)
There's a lot riding on Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft's highly-anticipated hacking adventure. Initially scheduled to be released alongside the Xbox One launch, Ubisoft made the decision to delay the game six months for extra polish. Ever since it's E3 debut in 2012, its been labelled as one of the biggest reasons for gamers to make the jump onto next-gen hardware. Now, we can finally see what the fuss is all about when it launches this Tuesday on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
We would love to have a full review ready for you now, but we're going to be needing some extra time before we lay down a final verdict. Watch_Dogs is a big game with a ton of stuff to do all over its realistic Chicago backdrop and we want to make sure we don't miss a thing.

After encountering a number of delays, Press Play's charming and challenging puzzler released on Xbox 360 last week. It was absent on last weeks' article because we had no knowledge of it beforehand, so we decided to throw it in now in case some of you missed the news. We enjoyed Max on Xbox One and we don't expect much of a difference between both versions but we'll have a separate review for 360 in the coming days.

It's been real interesting seeing Watch_Dogs make its first appearance at E3 with that jaw-dropping gameplay demonstration to its somewhat bumpy release. Despite that, our excitement is at an all-time high and we're going to be spending most of this week engrossed in Ubisoft's new IP. Will you be doing the same? Let us know in the comments below.
