Steam reviews http://store.steampowered.com/app/443080/ for PC aren't too positive on this game. Anyone here have experience with the XBox version?

Yes, during the July 8th weekend as I picked up a copy while it was free.

Yes. They have had it free on the PC last month.

Of course, this deal is for the Xbox One Wink

Also note: This is just the PVP component of the game. I assume this is for those that don't want to invest in the full game and just jump into matches as well as allow ED to keep match populations up.

Apparently the multiplayer is dead and this is the PvP version only - Some says 44 hours in and only found 2 games.

Is that from the PC reviews or Xbox? Or is the a cross-platform game?

It is on sale because this is just a very small part of the actual game. I got it free on Steam and still have not wasted my time on it. When they first started making it fir the PC, they said nothing about online-only. But then changed their minds just before release. I would have bought it but there is no way I will stand for a constant online connection. Just like when the new Sim City came out. Pissed a lot of people off until they fixed it.

No, not with the full version. And this one here (the cheap version) is against a human player. So no offline mode for this either.

Exactly. If you like this game, get the Elite Dangerous: Commander Deluxe Edition $60 or standard edition for $30. This is like getting 'GTA PARKING LOT ARENA' and the only thing you do is try to kill another opponent in a parking lot. That would be nothing like the real GTA 5 game.
