But more are on their way as Bill Stillwell, lead program manager of the Xbox platform, said that Microsoft's gaming arm has a "curated list of original Xbox classics" which will be released for the Xbox One early 2018. While Xbox Australia is calling it a "boutique sleepover experience" all the comforts and facilities you'd expect from a hotel will be on offer. Xbox are opening their doors to its guests in their Xbox Stay N' Play. This means that they work between all of Xbox consoles, allowing a player to connect the original Xbox to an Xbox One or even an Xbox 360 for multiplayer games.

Situated in front of the iconic Sydney skyline in Pirrama Park, Pyrmont, the first-of-its-kind establishment will open its doors to fans from Friday November 3 until Sunday November 5, with four suites themed around some of the biggest and most popular games available on the console - including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin's Creed Origins and Minecraft.

You can book a reservation now on a first-come, first-served basis through this Eventbrite page. Check-in will be a 8pm and check-out will be at 8am.

Facebook Messenger users can now send/receive money through PayPal
PayPal is rolling out this functionality to the Facebook Messenger app, and it will be available to U.S consumers from today. The green payments button is the next thing you need to tap, and then you can select PayPal to send the funds to a contact.

Reservations are now open, but if you miss out you can still check out the lobby where there will be a few console/TV setups available to play. We hope the experience gives them the chance to experience true 4K gaming in a genuinely unique environment, days before the product is available in stores.

You will check in with your Xbox Gamertag, or make one when you get there. Preserving the art form of video games is part of our DNA, which is why Xbox One is the only console created to play the best games of the past, present and future.

We're excited to announce Xbox One X owners will have two Preferred Rendering Options to choose from in Gears of War 4 - Visuals and Performance!
