The Summer of Arcade sale lives on with the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale starting 7/7
Article updated to include info on Summer Spotlight
I am going to stack up some cheap digital X360 games for the upcoming BC update this Fall.
I know, I started doing that right after Microsoft's E3 press conference lol.
If Microsoft (and the publishers) were smart, they would create an Xbox 360 store tile for the Xbox One and sell BC games there.
That's an awesome idea. Hoping they do it.
Bubbles man. That is a stellar idea!
I'm seriously debating whether or not it makes sense to just throw my Xbox 360 Slim on ebay now that i Have a Xbox One and it's BC.
I would wait until they publish a complete launch list closer to this fall. No sense in doing something and then a lot of the games you want to play arent on the list. Im sure most will be but I would wait personally.
Keep it for now so that you can continue to play you're 360 games, until most of your games are on the list.
They said 100 games within the first year. That's only 10% of the XBOX 360s library. I wouldn't ditch your XBOX 360 anytime soon. While Microsoft claimed it was a simple process to make your games compatible, the fact that it requires approval will mean a lot of games never appear. As an example, games with HD remasters scheduled aren't very likely to appear as backwards compatible anytime soon, as it doesn't make sense financially. Also, many devs who don't have digital versions available for their games and are no longer shipping their title have little to no incentive to approve the backward compatibility, because it doesn't net them any revenue, and in fact it may reduce it long term. For a lot of publishers I imagine it will not be a quick process at the very least, requiring a rather extensive evaluation before the decision is made to support the service, or not. Long story short, since your 360 isn't worth much anyway, I would hold onto it for the time being.
I guess I'll plug my Xbox 360 back in. Thanks, guys!
should post it on there feedback site and start voting guys!
Post this on the feedback site...great idea. Bubbles+
Actually this article is 100% wrong... it was announced that Summer of Arcade is turning into Summer Spotlight... the Ultimate Sale is separate from that promotion. Ultimate Sale is just a sale on previously released games, Summer Spotlight will focus on new titles. #factcheck https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Dlacy13g you are absolutely correct. We've gone ahead and updated the article to reflect the available information regarding Summer Spotlight. Thanks for linking that video over to us!
its comical that I got a disagree.
Lol I know, right? Welcome to N4g.
Here, have another one.
Considering how much they charge for downloaded titles, even with these discounts they are steeper than buying a used copy, and then of course you can always trade or lend to a friend
Not when you and a friend share libraries and buy everything half price
I've been waiting to pick up Ori and the Blind Forest! Glad to see this one is going to be on sale!
You'll love it. One on my favorite platformers.
