Outside Xtra


Outside Xtra is a companion channel to Outside Xbox, which first introduced exquisite hosts Ellen and Luke. Running in tandem with Outside Xbox, Outside Xtra covers the wider world of gaming and related culture, including PlayStation, Nintendo, virtual reality and games that don't have Master Chief in.

Look for regular appearances by OG Outside Xboxers Andy, Jane and Mike, and generally more of the videos you love, about more of the platforms you enjoy, from a team now two people larger overall.

About Us




Ellen loves stealth and adventure games, hash browns and tea, and is still not over the fact there will never be a sequel to Kingdoms of Amalur.

She has been making game videos on her personal YouTube channel icklenellierose since 2010 and is a long-term subscriber to Outside Xbox for some reason. She joined Outside Xtra from official UK Xbox channel Xbox On, where one time she had a snowball fight with Sam Lake.

Luke spent his formative years poring over N64 Magazine and shielding his Game Boy's on-off switch from thoughtless passers-by. He has written for Nintendo Life and used to work at CNET, where he made videos about new gadgets and once got to press all the buttons in the Back to the Future DeLorean.

Luke loves dinosaurs to a degree that is alarming to his friends, and has an alternate ending to Revenge of the Sith that would frankly blow your mind.
