Due to the very sad news that this wonderful site is closing, does anyone have any recommendations of where to go to get Xbox specific news and chat that isn't completely vile and populated by 12 year olds, the ones that are all like "I've done things to your mother/I'll be doing things to your mother"?
Thanks and all the best to the pureXBOX staff.

@crippyd: I want to know too. Actually, I was about to post this: "I think we all should decide where are we going next for our Xbox bit so we can stay in touch!"

You all can find me on Nintendo Life and I have a huge Nintendo knowledge as I've been a Nintendo gamer all my life. I'm an expert! Even though I have an Xbox One since recently, I love the console and the community already. As a newcomer, Xbox One is the console that has given me best deals and tons of games (including Xbox360 games). I also have a PS4 but I'm a bit sick of PushSquare's gutter journalism (I have a degree in Journalism so I know what I'm talking about)!

So where do we go now? I'm going to miss PureXbox very much. I also visit Eurogamer for some great articles but the community is not very well-behaved.

P.S.: Feel free to add me...

I really don't like the navigation bar of Nintendo Life continuously reappearing while browsing!!

@crippyd: Yeah. I forgot about those guys. I think Px got my 'clicks' as I am purely (excuse pun) interested in Xbox whereas they are multi-plat as you said. I may go show my face over there and check out the forums.

@Captain_Chao5 I honestly don't know of any Xbox only sites (hence the post), so I think that might be the best option unless anyone can offer up a better one. I'm not sure on the news frequency as they are running it in their spare time.

@crippyd: Like @Captain_Chao5 I avoided that site as they've gone multi-plat... their Xbox forum isn't exactly a hive of activity either. Maybe I should just stick my head in the sand and go back to buying physical copies of OXM...

I can't think or know of any Xbox only websites with a forum - especially not a UK based one with news/dates/prices etc relevant to us. I am on PushSquare and they do have an active Forum - including a newly formed Official PushSquare Xbox Thread and of course a lot of the games/news are relevant to Xbox owners too - just won't see any news regarding Xbox only. However it is a good place to keep the community going - at least until we find a replacement. We can keep everyone informed on news etc that won't be covered by PushSquare. If I (or anyone else) does find a Site in the meantime, keep us informed...

A pessimist is just an optimist with experience!

Why can't life be like gaming? Why can't I restart from an earlier checkpoint??

Feel free to add me but please send a message so I know where you know me from...

Recently I'd say that PureXbox has been my favourite site in terms of it's community, thanks to great staff and fellow readers. It just seems like most other sites I go to are embroiled in a lot of drama within the comments, which luckily has rarely been the case here. Perhaps the smaller nature of this site ironically led to it being such a pleasant place to read and comment on.

In any case, all of you will be able to find me on http://www.nintendolife.com/users/Souldin as well as http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/view and I have a YouTube channel I do alongside my brother which should be linked to within my signature below.

On that note, how does one go about adding friends to an Xbox One, and would any of you mind if we add each other to it?

@Souldin Several ways to add friends 1) Xbox.com, friends, then search the gamer tag and click add, or 2) Xbox app on Windows phone, iPhone or Android (Windows phone works as per Xbox.com, not sure on the other two platforms) or via the friends tab on your Xbox. Hope this helps? Add away!!

For me I think the best way to keep in touch with people from here, at least for a while, is going to be Xbox Live, I'll just comment more on achievements or screenshots/videos people make and share. I put this in the Goodbye article but I want to remain in contact with as many people from here as possible because this was an awesome community so send me a friend invite, my username is NYYanks3621. Just let me know you're from Pure Xbox.

@sorethumbed I've joined up too. I've also posted a couple in the Xbox thread on Push Square.
