Message from the Admin (Ross):

Hi all,

Due to server difficulties in April 2013, all of our files and databases were lost. Unfortunately a recent back-up was not available, so I have made the decision to close the site. This was made due to falling visitor numbers and the increased use of social media between our regular users.

A decision has not yet been made about the future of the site, but all regular visitors will be kept updated about any plans. If you weren't a regular visitor but still wish to be notified of any future plans, please send an email to

One of our regular users has offered a new home to our visitors, at least for the time being. If you'd like to catch up with us, please visit

At one time, Xbox Elite was one of the top 10 Xbox fansites in the UK, as recognised by Microsoft themselves. However, over the last few years, social media has grown exponentially, and a large chunk of the fansite userbase now follow (and get support) from gaming companies via other means.

I am sad to see the site go, but I felt that it was inevitable. I would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support over the last 8 years, and I am immensely proud of what the website has achieved in this time.
