About Us – Team History

Xbox Players was originally founded as GamersOnline UK in August 2011 by Paul Babbage and Peter Kelly, and had the sole purpose of bringing gamers together to enjoy the company of other likeminded gamers, they began hosting and arranging regular game nights and events for members, and the site rebranded as XboxPlayers in November 2011.

Xbox Players was quickly recognised as a reliable source of information for all Xbox related news, discussion and videos. The introduction of Game Reviews gave Xbox Players the opportunity to establish themselves as a good source of reference within the Video Games Industry for new Xbox games.

Our rapid expansion and growing user base lead the busy co-owners to look for more partners in the business and in October 2012 Robin Cope and Jon Scoular joined the team. The site has gone from strength to strength and is currently ranked well inside the top 1% of most visited websites in the world today, according to Alexa.

Sadly in April 2015 due to other commitments Peter Kelly left the admin team, he remains a member of the site and will always be fondly remembered as Co-Founder, and a key driving force of the site.

In June 2015 John White a long serving member of the site, joined the team as Co-Owner along with Paul Babbage, Robin Cope, and  Jon Scoular.
