Amazing month!! Probably best one yet! I haven't play black flag yet so that's awesome!

PONTIAC08G8GT788d ago

Finally a real game, not some arcade trash. Now, I have no real desire to play Assassins Creed but its good to finally see a major release for free on the X1. Hopefully next month they continue with 2 games a month with 1 of them being a real title.

mikeslemonade788d ago

Good month, but the competition will find a way top this just like how they have done so for the past 3 years.

Farmassy788d ago

Yes mike. We all know you love playstation

I hope backwards compatibility will allow them to do some awesome games with gold. They could do gears 2 and 3 or other big titles

Cool, whats most interesting to me is the Gears3 for Xbox 360...I believe you can download it even if you no longer have your 360 by going to Xbox.com and using your Gold account then when they make it available for X1 BC you can play it free on X1 with all the added DVR perks as well.

This has been an especially sweet month and the good news is all the holiday X1 blockbuster exclusives are still to come with a awseome 2016 lined up after that, great job Micorosft.

JasonKCK788d ago (Edited 788d ago )

Was wondering when they were going to add a big game to the list. A lot of people were expecting Ryse to be the first for some reason. I was thinking that they gave Black Flag already but I think that was on 360, I think.

Reading mikeslemonade's comment then seeing this http://n4g.com/news/1748546... Amazing how lopsided this site is.

It's probably the best recent Assassins Creed, since 1 and 2. Hope you enjoy it.

iSuperSaiyanGod788d ago

3 is the best in my opinion then 4 & the rest are just blah to me lol

zidane1341788d ago

@supersaiyan; you arein the veeeery small minority if you think the 3rd was good.Biggest disappointment ever.

Scatpants788d ago

I hated 3. The main character was so lame and whiny. I probably like 2 then Black Flag and despite what everyone says I like Unity, if only for how detailed Paris is.

Zeref788d ago

3 was the worst. Black Flag is a 5.5 out of 10. All the others are awesome.

I wasted $30 on it. When I got the One. Decent game but not worth what I payed for it. But seeing at it is free...

fermcr788d ago (Edited 788d ago )

Nice, X1 AAA game... It's about time.

700p788d ago

yeah so far, this is the best gwg for xbox one. I cant wait to download ac4 <3

AceBlazer13788d ago

this is a very amazing line up. a big name franchise on both the current and preivous gen

3-4-5788d ago

* AC4:Black Flag was an awesome pirate game and the best AC game since AC2:brotherhood.

* I won't be playing the story again, but I'll download it for the multiplayer.

The multiplayer is fun in these games, can't believe they got rid of it in Unity...such a dumb move.

Good month. Glad to see them adding an extra game for Xbone. Ill pick up black flag again just to sail around.

Gears will eventually hit the BC list too, which is just an even sweeter deal.

Volkama788d ago

Black Flag has been available for a few quid ever since the AC bundle with digital keys got sold like hotcakes on black friday. Still, good to see a "proper" full retail game on the service. Hopefully more like that to follow.

Must remember to pick up 360 games from now on as well. Gears 3 is certain to work on the Xbox One when BC releases properly.

MasterCornholio788d ago (Edited 788d ago )

I highly recommend it.

Word of warning.

If you really want to Platinum the game get the multiplayer trophies through Wolfpack. You gain a ton more experience that way.

P.S I got the platinum trophy in the game.

@Below

Why the ones that you get with the PS4 version.

It still doesn't invalidate my recommendation. Its still the same game on XB1. I just like being honest.

Trust me it will be much better playing the X1 version than the 360 version especially with all the graphical upgrades.

TheRedButterfly788d ago (Edited 788d ago )

What are these "trophies" you speak of? :P

OT: I'm glad to be getting AC:IV. I wanted to snag it on X360 back when it was free there, but I'm glad it's showing up on XO now. I'd much rather give it a go with a better picture than wait for the title to show up within Backwards Compatibility in a few months.

christocolus788d ago

Nice. Between this and the BC announcement its been a really great month for Xbox. Nice to finally see full retail games included. Hopefully with Backward compatibility Xbox One owners will be able to download and play certain Xbox 360 GWG tiltles.

22CobraKing788d ago

Finally a good month to Xbox One users, that means no more pool nation. XD
But seriously a good month. Let's see what I can get from ps plus for July.

Blaze929788d ago

they knew better than to offer that one more time lol

JamesBroski788d ago

I love PlayStation, but I doubt they'll come with something better than this tbh... the last few months have been terrible. And I'm a fan of indies.

OB1Biker788d ago (Edited 788d ago )

Got GZ last month so that was great for me. I hope we get Black flag too
Edit: or Left behind would be great too

Pogmathoin788d ago

Regardless, free games.... should not complain, better than getting nothing.

JamesBroski788d ago

@Pogmathoin

Well considering the games we were getting before PS+ was mandatory for online, there's definitely a drop in quality. Even for PS3 and PS Vita games.

Pogmathoin788d ago

James, I agree, but cannot expect top games all the time, and nothing is ever lost with free games.... Few years ago, everyone got nothing......
