This seems like a great excuse to try the more modern Tomb Raider games if you were a fan of the originals in the 90s.

We just wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, hopefully you are staying safe and enjoying the festive holidays with family and friends.

This year we have no surprise Pokemon events to release, however hopefully this is a tradition that might be able to continue in the future.

In the mean time we hope you enjoy some time and good food with family / friends.​

If you ever wanted to have a Shiny Zacian or Shiny Zamazenta now is your chance. Many stores around the word have started to distribute and register peoples interest in obtaining a code for the shinies. So be sure to checkout your local game store.

Various stores are allowing you to register online for a code. Its hard to say if they will be doing any checks against your IP address to determine if you actually reside in the country they operate, however you can try to obtain a code from the following stores online:
You can also try the following websites, although you must register for an account:
I have personally used Game UK as I reside in the UK, however I have also had luck with Micromania in France for past distributions.

Good luck trainers!

Digiex member @Gunz4Hire has released a new homebrew game for the Xbox 360, PADDLE MEYHEM.

PADDLE MEYHEM is essentially Pong meets Geometry Wars and really does take you back to the early days of XBLA when the 360 launched in 2005, with a great soundtrack to compliment the game too! If this was on XBLA I'd have purchased it for 400ms points back in the day.

If you have a Jtag / RGH hacked Xbox 360 this is well worth checking out, you'll certainly get a bit of nostalgia playing PADDLE MEYHEM. You can download PADDLE MEYHEM from the release thread over in the Digiex Download Center.

Its great to see homebrew activity taking place on the Xbox 360 12 years after we got the Jtag hack, allowing the average person to run unsigned code on the 360.

Today announced that it is beginning the rollout of Windows 11 to devices that are running supported hardware. Interestingly in addition to offering the Windows 11 Installation Assistant and Media Creation tool, Microsoft are allowing anyone to download ISO's directly, without having tools to build an ISO, or third party services such as Tech Bench.

So if you want to upgrade to Windows 11 and your hardware is capable, head over to Download Windows 11 on Microsoft.com and you can skip the wait and upgrade today.

Will you be upgrading? personally I wont be rushing to upgrade on day one.

At the moment anyone who is interested can register to play the Halo Infinite Multiplayer Preview on 24th September, all you need to do is signup via the Halo Insider Program.

To do this simply go to the Halo Insider Program Website and click signup under the become a Halo insider section. You must however register your interest / complete your profile by September 13th to be eligible.

Are you still interested in Halo? if so will you be signing up?

I'm sure if you have had an interest in Xbox hacking and modding for long enough you will have heard of Xbox-Scene, even if you have never actually browsed the site. Historically in the early 2000's Xbox-Scene was the centre of the Xbox homebrew and hacking scene.

Iriez and romracer from the Xbins team, along with CrunchBite, the X-Link Kai dev have managed to resurrect the forums over the last three years, recovering data from web scrapes by xboxexpert on Reddit, partial dumps and even from historical crawls from archive.org

I can only imagine how much work it was to get Xbox-Scene back up and running today as well as it is.

Do head over to Xbox-Scene to read more about the work behind brining the site back and more importantly to browse an important part of Xbox history.

Not many people are probably aware that Bill Gates wanted to embrace the modding community after been show the additional functionality the scene had added to the original Xbox.

This can be seen on the Xbox 360 with the media playback functionality built in to the dashboard, the integration with Windows Media Center and later in the consoles life the Indie games that could be developed on retail 360's and published on the marketplace.

Even today this influence remains true with the ease of accessing dev mode on retail Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S consoles.

It seems crazy to me that the Xbox-Scene site started almost 20 years ago... where does time go? anyway enjoy the trip down memory lane.

An un-named developer who worked on the original Xbox has revealed that he hid an Easter egg in the Dashboard of the system software.

The developer stated: “I didn’t really expect it to be found, not unless the source code leaked or somebody reverse-engineered the Dashboard. Its trigger was the same as the ‘main’ Easter egg so I knew it was possible. I figured somebody would have to leak it for it to be known.”

To trigger the Easter egg:
  1. Go into Music and insert an audio CD.
  2. From the Audio CD screen choose Copy, again Copy, then New Soundtrack.
  3. Delete the default soundtrack title and replace it with (no quotes) “Timmyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!” (That’s the letter “y” 26 times. Or you can just fill the entire field and replace the last one with a “!”.)
  4. Wait for the contents to copy to the internal HDD. When the task completes, go back to the main menu.
  5. Navigate to Settings and then System Info.
  6. You should now see the new hidden screen listing members of the Xbox Dashboard Team - Victor Blanco, Sakphong Chanbai, Bradford Christian and Jim Helm.
Its nice to see the original Xbox still held a secret 20 years after release, despite been one of the most hacked consoles ever.

XIII for the PC is currently free on Good Gold Games (GoG) until April 1st.

Back in the late 2000's gamers were highly anticipating a remaster of the Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007. The remaster, which reportedly needed only two more months of development before it was finished, was cancelled because Nintendo, MGM, and Microsoft, which acquired Rare in 2002, were unable to come to a licensing agreement.

The GoldenEye 007 remaster for the Xbox 360 has now leaked all these years later. This remaster, which would have been released on Xbox Live arcade has been known to of been out there for many years now, screenshots and video has been teased over the year. A beta of GoldenEye 007 was briefly posted to Partnernet back in 2007, a developer only version of Xbox Live. As anyone with an Xbox 360 developer kit could access Partnernet back then with no authentication the game was quickly downloaded by someone before it was removed from Partnernet. We can only speculate how this game ended up making its way to the internet, it was likely passed around in private circles before someone decided to leak it for the world to enjoy. Either way i'm sure many gamers are thankful to whoever leaked this for finally giving them a chance to play this cancelled game all these years later.

This leak is a different game to GoldenEye 007: Reloaded which was eventually released on the Xbox 360.

GoldenEye 007 for Xbox 360 can be played on a Jtag or RGH hacked Xbox 360 or on a PC using the Xenia Emulator providing you have a Direct X12 capable graphics card.

From what I've seen GoldenEye 007 is playable from start to finish with only minor bugs with multiplayer and system link split screen working. This should mean its possible to play online using various Xbox 360 tunnelling services such as Xlink Kai or XBS Link. Debug functionality is also present in this build of GoldenEye 007.

Due to the nature of the internet these days it's not a beta we will be hosting on Digiex, however if you...
