The man that spent $735 on a photo now has a free Xbox One console given to him for all his troubles. The man from the UK bought a photo of an Xbox One on eBay, but didn’t read the fine print that he was just purchasing a photo.

CeX (a second hand shop in the UK) were kind enough to give the man a free Xbox One console considering all the embarrassment and hassle he had to go through. If you ever buy something online, be sure to read what you are buying and also make sure the seller is legit. The last thing you want to happen is to buy something you didn’t want.

Normally when we show a comparison video like this, it's comparing the same game across platforms. But this one's different. It's two games across two platforms, which may sound pointless, but remember, these are driving games we're talking about. We can get away with it.
Spelunky procedurally-generates its levels, meaning you'll never ever play the same stage twice. But how does this magic actually work? How do you get to play through actual playable stages, and not nightmarish collages of terrain?

Eeehhh, we're a bit uneasy about the new Thief game. But hey, we won't know until we get our hands on the finished product. Until then, here's a story trailer, which given its airing during the VGX should have been just cinematic fluff. So it's nice they also stuck some gameplay in there.
