Lost Odyssey is such a good game and can't argue with the price.

christocolus342d ago

First time both games will be available digitally and LO is free until Dec 31st. Great job MS. Great job. Now my friends can try out both games. BC is amazing.

darthv72342d ago

I just downloaded alan wake last night and now my hdd is going to get smaller with this 20gb+ mofo.

BLizardXD341d ago (Edited 341d ago )

Great game. after seeing this, something big maybe coming this E3. we'll just have wait and see.

mikeslemonade341d ago

The last great Jrpg. Not this garbage 13, 15, and ni no kuni.

Kingthrash360341d ago

Mike....really?
Why can't you just enjoy the game. Instead of spewing your obviously bias opinion.
This is a great jrpg for the 360. Enjoy it.
I doubt you've even played it. The battle system is too complicated for you. So try it out, give it a chance.

Oh snap. I'm downloading it now. Don't have to swap 3 disks to play it when it's all on the HDD. This is awesome Microsoft. Thank you.

@darthv72
Yeah, it's 23GB. It's going to take awhile to download. Work the wait and disk space.

Chevalier341d ago

4 discs if I recall correctly, not 3.

KillBill341d ago

Odd... I am downloading it now and it shows just over 16GB for the full download on X360. Couldn't imagine why it would be 7GB more for Xbox One if that is what you are downloading it for?

That's a good one, but I'd prefer to have Hironobu Sakaguchi stop focusing on Terra Battle and other android/ios games and give us something new.

lxeasy341d ago

I'm downloading this tonight!!

Nu341d ago

I learned of this news thanks to N4g.

Holy! Digital AND free at the same timemail? Boss! No more swapping a million discs

Now I dare someone to complete the game before the free time runs out.

christocolus342d ago (Edited 342d ago )

I hope we get a sequel to LO. That game is so good. I already have the disc version but I couldn't resist owning the digital version.

Christopher342d ago

Did not care for Blue Dragon. Never got to play Lost Odyssey. My lucky day, indeed. If it was Blue Dragon, I would have been sad. Not to say others can't enjoy it, I'm just being selfish and enjoying it turned out more in my favor that it may have for others.

Christopher342d ago

My understanding is it's free to buy for a limited time, but once you own it and keep up your XBL account, you can play it whenever.

christocolus342d ago (Edited 342d ago )

Exactly. It's not tied to Xbox live subscription either. You can pick it up now before Dec 31st for free.

Eliseo676342d ago

Indeed, it's essentially a third Games with Gold offer.

Automatic79342d ago (Edited 342d ago )

@Christopher

All Xbox 360 games you acquire, through an Xbox Live gold account are yours free to own. That also includes when the Xbox Live Subscription runs out. To clarify free for life.

meatnormous342d ago

I just started the download and I don't have a gold account.

Christopher342d ago

***All Xbox 360 games you acquire, through an Xbox Live gold account are yours free to own.***

I know, you should note I'm replying to Septic who mentioned 'free time runs out', which I felt might mislead people to think it was only free for a period of time.

gamer7804341d ago

Lon3wolf342d ago

You don't need to change discs, only keep the 1st one in (if you are referring to theses multi disc titles of course).

KillBill341d ago

Not sure if you played Lost Odyssey yet? I know when I played it I was required to change out disks at points in the game. Even with all disks installed on my x360.

I am downloading the digital copy now just so I have another copy available.

KillBill341d ago

@Cobra951 - yes I understand that. What I didn't understand is the comment by Lon3wolf that only keeping the 1st one in is required. I don't recall at any point in the past of being able to play Lost Odyssey without disk swaps when required by gameplay, not even after the ability to install onto HD.

Lon3wolf341d ago (Edited 341d ago )

@Killbill to play the BC version originally before it became a digital title you only needed to keep the 1st disc in even when it said swap discs, yes you had to change it for the 360 I assumed Septic was talking about when it first went BC not on 360. I have the discs because I did play it on the 360 :D

BizarroUltraman342d ago (Edited 342d ago )

Its free for you to keep not limited play. You have til the 31st to redeem the free token.

Edit: I asked someone on Xbox chat.

Septic341d ago

Oh man that's insane! Even better!

CYCLEGAMER341d ago

WAIT! They take it back after the 31st???

Septic341d ago

Nah they don't. It was my misunderstanding. If you download it before then it's yours to keep 😊

"Blue Dragon is not free :("

*Edit* the person changed the title... Hence my comment. On topic... Any game that's free is nice :)

Movefasta1993342d ago (Edited 342d ago )
