It might just be me overthinking things but I do get the impression that Microsoft would prefer to phase out Games with Gold and incorporate it into Game Pass. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Gold and Game Pass get merged. I noticed recently that Elder Scrolls Online was heavily discounted in a sale, not for Gold members but for Game Pass subscribers. A sign of things to come? Edit: having said that, why get customers to pay once when they already pay twice.

I hope not. I have three years of gold lined up, pretty much only for the free games

Just looking at it now the deal is still on, well “heavily discounted” might be pushing it, you save £11 for the Elder Scrolls Online Collection. Not even sure if it is just a Game Pass sign up incentive or a Game Pass specific deal.

Game Pass members get discounts on games that are in the service. It varies based on how old the game is, with the biggest discount being 20% for games that are at least 3 months old. So it'll be that.

Cheers for explaining that, I certainly don’t begrudge Game Pass members getting the most out of their subscription it is just something I’ve not noticed before. Glad it isn’t some kind of two tier system of special offers alongside Deals with Gold.

I loved Splinter Cell Conviction on the 360. They may not be the biggest names but the July GWG seems pretty decent to me. I'll definitely play Assault Android Cactus which looks like a fun twin stick shooter and has some good reviews.

with game pass they can remove the games at any time (they give a months notice) I guess they hope gamers will buy the games

As people know GwG let you keep them and get them back when you subscribe again for xbox one games.

It makes me laugh the reaction to psn+ and GwG each month, the most angry vocal psn+ hate all the games (even xcom2, mad max, bloodborne) and the most the most angry vocal GwGs are thankfully for any **** as long they don't own it ("as free is free") if a waiter throws a stale bread roll at you and said "well its free you ****" I don't people would be happy

Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is now backwards compatible. So this is basically backwards compatibility of a 360 port of a PlayStation Vita game. I had to YouTube a review of it to remind myself what it was, there are so many Assassins Creed games...

The XBox One Thread Pt3 - discuss!

Iíve completed ALL the 3D ones but not the 2D Trilogy, annoyingly although I did complete Liberation it was on the Vita and the AC log doesnít record that version

Where do you find an AC log? Uni club? Surprised if that covered 1 or even 2?
The 2d ones are tripe. Haven't played the 3rd. After mark of the ninja they just don't cut it

Iíve forgotten where it is now, I think itís in the Club but I canít remember even looking at it in Origins, pretty sure AC1 & 2 arenít in it either but Liberation HD is, not the Vita just the HD
