XONE is a monthly magazine produced by Imagine Publishing in the United Kingdom. XONE is the UK's #1 selling independent dedicated Xbox 360 & Xbox One magazine, covering news, previews and reviews. The magazine's community and Xbox Live also feature heavily in the magazine.

XONE was originally included as a supplement in the now-defunct Highbury Entertainment publication XBM, but was made a monthly magazine in October 2005, prior to the launch of the Xbox 360. It was Highbury Entertainment's biggest ever launch (known at the time as X-360), with over £200k spent on below-the-line marketing. The magazine is packaged with a DVD featuring game trailers narrated by the XONE team, plus a book usually containing a walkthrough or achievement guide.
