You wouldn’t think something like this would still be as confusing an issue as it is, but the seemingly simple idea of playing an Xbox 360 game on the Xbox One can be incredibly complex to some people. Indeed, in my work video game sales, I often get asked details on this, and when I …

July 2017 Xbox Live Games With Gold

Microsoft was super late on on getting out the video for July’s Games With Gold. Not just were they late on it, but they also seem to have been at quite a rush on this as the game selection seems lacking – almost as if Microsoft had gotten so wrapped up in E3 they had …

Original Xbox Games To Be Playable On The Xbox One

Time for the next months Games with Gold lineup, and this time we’re changing the article format a bit. Something I find interesting is that this time around, I’m seeing pretty positive feedback on the YouTube comments on this one, a rare treat to see people not complaining nonstop about the game selection.

May 2017 Xbox Live Games With Gold

A very Star Wars heavy game set for May, the Games With Gold program actually seems to be providing a damned fine set of games this month in comparison with previous months releases, many of which have been average at best. This time around we get 2 Star Wars games, and 2 others, which we …

You know the drill, a new month, a new set of 4 games, 2 for the Xbox one, and 2 for the Xbox 360, free with your Xbox Live Gold subscription. They may not always be the best games, but they don’t cost you anything extra beyond the price of the service (hence the use …
