This week on Outside Xbox

Festive indie games get the Gong Show treatment. Plus: animal breeding and rumour and speculation.

It's almost the future year 2013. What wonders will it bring? Hoverboards? Marauding road warriors? A safety razor with one more blade? Almost certainly all three. There's also the outside chance we'll get a new Xbox. This week's Show of the Week explores all the rumours surrounding just that fabled machine.

Among the choicest cuts from Outside Xbox's Christmas week, there's a video investigation of the recent update to Minecraft's Xbox 360 Edition - specifically, of the new animal breeding features. Expect adorable baby critters and competitive animal husbandry.

Finally, like a turkey sandwich, here's a delicious reminder of the Christmas break: a selection of festive Xbox 360 indie games given the Gong Show treatment. Once we're bored, we're out. First up, Santa and the Zombie Encounter.
