From what I understand, crunc is right. With the Xbox 360, you download the game and it's yours for good. With the Xbox One, it's yours as long as you have a current Live membership

Pretty close to getting myself an Xbox One, perhaps tomorrow if I don't talk myself out of it before then. So, after recommends, nothing cross console but games that are also on PC are fine.

Sunset Overdrive appears to be free with Games with Gold this month and have been after that for awhile. The Flame in the Flood looks good, anyone played it? Any other recommends?

I was in the same boat as you last November, and I'm very happy I pulled the trigger on it. I just bought sunset overdrive this month (it was only $14 so I'm not upset about it going free with good) and it's great, very different from any other game on the market. If you like racing games both forza games are must-haves, halo 5 is fantastic but pretty multiplayer centric, rise of the tomb raider is a great action game but that will be on ps4 next fall. All in all there are many more great games I didn't list plus an awesome lineup of console exclusives coming this year.

Thanks one, bundle I was looking at includes TR (and Fallout 3/4 but have both), went into the shop and talked myself out of it but plan on going in tomorrow and just doing it, has a good lot of exclusives I'm interested in and was quite surprised by some of the titles I was unaware of. I guess if I get that bundle and Gold I have two decent titles to play with Sunset Overdrive and Tomb Raider.

How do you find visuals and frame rates? Everything looks pretty impressive in videos and thinking the negativity has largely been overhyped. Oh yeah, do you get 3 months Gold with your console or 1?

Ok? I'm not sure that's relevant.

Ah, ok. Sorry. The thread has been dead so long I didn't think there would any responses regarding anything but the current conversation.
