I'm making a rare PSA in the main forum because there have been many deals in the past and currently posted regarding Xbox Game Pass and Live Gold. As you might know, 'Games with Gold' usually had one Xbox 360 title each month that was yours to keep forever regardless of subscription status in the future. While this will not affect titles already owned, starting October 1st, 'Games with Gold' will no longer include any free Xbox 360 titles going forward. (Again, this will not remove any titles you already have. I'm sure Xbox 360 titles will still be for sale.)

Quote from Xbox :
Beginning October1, 2022, the monthly games provided to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox LiveGold members via Games with Gold will no longer include Xbox 360 titles.

We have reached the limit of our ability to bring Xbox 360 games to thecatalog; however, Games with Gold will continue to include exciting Xbox Onetitles and exclusive savings each month.

This will not impact any Xbox 360 games that you downloaded before October2022. Any Xbox 360 titles that you redeem via Games with Gold before that timeare yours to keep on your Xbox account, regardless of whether you continue yoursubscription.

Thank you for being a loyal member.

Funny enough, Xbox 360 has been relevant since 2005!

GWG is a joke anyways. Maybe twice a year we'd get a decent Trip-A title

So sorry if I am not following, but if we own a physical or digital copy it's still good right? This is just that we won't get any 360-only titles popping up in GFG or GamePass? So if I have one or two I want I would just have to buy.

Yes just the free game they give out. You should still be able to purchase them on the store or play the ones you own.

I actually liked getting 360 titles. They were backwards compatible and you got to own them after your gold subscription ran out

That has nothing to do with anything. This is just saying they won't be included in Games with Gold anymore. It doesn't have anything to do with games purchased (physical or digital).

Oh, I see. Thanks for the clarification. Maybe it's not as bad as I thought.

They were pretty much out of any 360 games they could give away that were even worth taking the time to bother claiming for free anyway. They could have maybe gone back and started offering ones they already gave away in the past for people who weren't subscribers or missed them the first time around, but this is probably the first step in phasing out GwG and pushing people to Game Pass.
