Thread Details

Starting November 12, all future Games with Gold titles for Xbox 360 will be playable on Xbox One, giving you double the free games to play each month—two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. With Xbox One Backward Compatibility, play multiplayer with your friends no matter which console they’re on and enjoy Xbox 360 games with the advanced features of your Xbox One, including Game DVR, Screenshots, and in-home streaming to Windows 10.

Download on Xbox.com/GameswithGold or your Xbox 360 console and the games will automatically show up on Xbox One in the “Ready to Install” section of My games & apps.

Also, if you buy the Gears of War Ultimate game or Xbox One bundle and actually play the game online, you will receive a voucher redeemable for Gears of War 1, Gears of War 2, Gears of War 3, and Gears of War Judgement for free in backwards-compatibility mode. This offer expires December 31, 2015 so you must sign in on Xbox Live and play online before then.

This is such BS marketing from Microsoft... the amount of free games is the same: I have both 360 and Xbone, so I've been downloading 4 games a month even before this November 12th magical date.

Even if you own just the 360 or Xbone, you can still add the free games for the console you don't own to your Live account.

For older (previous Games with Gold) games: if they are in the BC list, then yes.
For future Games with Gold games after November 12: they will be playable on Xbone.

In other news that people may or may not know yet, summer is considerably warmer than winter...

Sorry but this post irked me. I got excited when I received this deal alert, thinking that Microsoft was actually offering extra free games this month, just to see for the umpteenth time about backwards compatibility. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy about it, but this isn't a "deal" that requires another post.

I think the key here is that previously you can't play your Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, so if you only have an Xbox One that is effectively doubling the games you get to play each month for free.

I don't see the issue here, but I think MS could seriously need to clarify their marketing because what they said is highly cryptic.
