2 new arrivals hit Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility – Are they worth the return?

Carlos writes "Last week we had a ton of new backwards compatible titles come to the Xbox One, helping to push the number of games closer to the 400 backwards compatible mark. Today sees two more additions, but are they games that players should dust off once more or should they be left in the past?"

I don't get why people ask if having BC games on XB no matter how great or bad they are, are worth it.

There are many gamers... aka Me... That have a large 360 collection and want to eventually finish these games they may have started and put aside or collect all the achievements. To me, I want every 360 game on BC so that I can complete them all.


Are the free Xbox Games With Gold titles for May 2019 any good?

Carlos writes: "Whilst the year may be progressing faster than we can blink, and games seem to be arriving in the digital stores by the dozens each week, it has to be said that the start of any month is a time in which many Xbox players quietly look forward to. Sure you have all those exciting new releases as well, but more importantly, if you’re one of the millions of subscribers to Xbox Live Gold, you’ll be rubbing your hands together with the imminent arrival of fresh new titles at no extra cost. With May now upon us, that time is now, so without further ado, let’s take a look at this month’s Xbox Games With Gold freebies to see if the wait has been worthwhile!"

MS should retire GWG and divert those funds to improving Game Pass.

monkey6021607d ago

It feels like they have a long time ago

darthv721607d ago

There are lots of games they can choose from and they only get to pick 4 so chances are there will be good months and bad months.

phoenixwing1607d ago

to be honest if i were microsoft i would take the hit and combine gwg and game pass into one cheap fee. It would go a long way in good will from the community and also stick it to sony that they added value before sony copies the practice. If sony doesn't copy it it will be an extra perk of picking an xbox over a playstation. However, microsoft is so money hungry they won't see the point of it since it doesn't provide extra money in the short term.

phoenixwing1607d ago

So they combined their streaming service with gold? I didnt know that they need better marketing

Atom6661607d ago

They did, but the price is about $5 too high.

KnightNumber861607d ago

Isn’t it monthly though... I don’t want another monthly bill.

Vetgamer1607d ago

Really? I like gold.. try out games I wouldn't normaly bother with. As for Microsoft just after cash not paid full price for gold in 5 years same for game pass in fact game pass cost me £1 for 3 months and gold for £26 for the year. What do you get with ps plus 2 games a month? Ps now £12.99 for mostly last gen games? Feel the hate heading my way🙄

Or improving their first party titles.

TheSaint1606d ago

This, been saying this since the start of the gen.

KillBill1606d ago

Improving Game Pass? What about Game Pass needs improvement? Still getting numerous quality titles each month on Game Pass often even new released games and AAA games. Even got Monster Hunter World on Game Pass. Not seeing a need to improve on what we are getting so far with Game Pass.

Stop calling them "free" games. You are paying to access them.
Also, no, that's the crappiest lineup I've seen in a while.

Lon3wolf1607d ago

You pay for online play/features not the games.

BrianOBlivion1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

No, YOU may pay for "online play/features" but others may not. The games are part of the package and I would not be paying for it otherwise. I have no interest in or use for "online play/features". I pay to access games. Same with PS Plus. Same with GamesPass.

I'm not saying you pay for the online the people you are paying the money to say that, strange you cannot grasp that very simple concept.

Again, you are speaking for everyone.

"Again, you are speaking for everyone."

No I'm speaking for the service that you pay for which is online, if you choose just to get the FREE games out of it that is your choice.

This line up proves they want more people on the game pass.

Pretty bad lineup outside EDF.

darthv721609d ago

Agreed, and I already have that one on disc. I was hoping it was 2025 instead.

Mr Pumblechook1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

This has to be the worst selection of Games with Gold offered ever. Now Microsoft has Game Pass it looks like they are retaining stronger titles for that.

sprinterboy1609d ago

If your into golf I recommend the golf club, personally I'm still playing 2018 version on ps4 but I would love ps plus to give us the 2019 one.
Worth a play for you xbox gamers, like I said if your into golf.

fathertime44641609d ago

Definitely a bad batch for the month..

lxeasy1609d ago

This line up is underwhelming
