The Games with Gold titles for Xbox 360 in June are “Dark Souls,” “Charlie Murder” and a bonus game of “Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.

I traded Dark Souls, so guess I get to die again and get no achieves again  Laughing 

Well pleased they are killing off Kinect, that' the beginning of the end for it now.

Nobody will buy one with it in the future, lets hope they give us auto log in without it!!

For fucks sake I have bought Charlie Murder and Dark Souls in sales recently and still not played them.

I am going to stop buying anything digital and wait for it all to be free as paying a subscription for a slew of 'free' games seems to be the way of the future.  Evil or Very Mad 

I guess I'll get Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade...  Rolling Eyes

Really pleased I payed all that extra cash for a shite kinect which I am never going to use while MS were insisting that it was an 'essential' part of the xbox one experience has a company ever done as many u-turns in such a short space of time as Microsoft with this console!?

like bertie says how many u turns do they need to do to keep up with sony?

I am with others in saying that i have none of those games and have heard lots about dark souls.

I think that big e said it best in his discussion about free content and what is the point in buying anymore when we get so much free stuff  Smile

Good point stubby, with the free games we are getting with the 360 and the one thats a potential of 4 a month if you have both consoles - and that, no matter what people say, is a pretty damn good perk if you ask me

I'm bloody glad i got my bone for free. I would be mightily annoyed if I'd paid for a kinect.

It's quite amusing how MS are having to basically follow the model that Sony implemented for the ps4.

It wouldn't be Microsoft if they didn't shaft their loyal customer base regularly. (Then again the same can be said for many big corporations nowadays).

they have rather changed over the last few years

I find them worrying now

the ease of which your data is on their systems with the Microsoft account which is a security nightmare waiting to happen, the appalling win 8 the intrusive and poor Kinect and now the subscription based glorified microtransactional office offerings are all imho massive backward steps

still as the trickster says most big corps pump you in the brown star

The way that they have changed policies so regularly with the xbox one is worrying it's like they don't have any clear direction or confidence in what they are doing, hopefully this new fella who is in charge of Xbox will change that and hopefully we start to get some good games coming out for it soon

What happened to their insistence that kinect is, sorry, was, the future? They kept saying the would never even consider offering it without the kinect and now they've changed their tune.
So everything they said at the beginning was complete bullshit, with hindsight. Wankers!!

Post  Stee01 on Wed May 21, 2014 4:25 am

Am I the only person who enjoys kinnect. Don't blame Microsoft for doing a console without one. Gotta remember that Kinect isn't  Phil Spencer's vision, It was Don Matricks. And Phil is all about pleasing the gamers it seems. He has a lot of mess to clean up after Don before we can really get the XBO going! At least he is on the right track so far I think.
while we are on the subject. Does the Xboxone kinnect works on a 360? The reason why I am asking because I am giving my beloved 360 to my youth group and kinnect would be great for the kids.

Well so far I've used Kinect for a few voice commands, and a little bit of the Xbox Fitness app (really must crack on with more of that).

Anyway tonight I've watched a movie through my Xbone for the first time. A quiet night in and the wife is out, looking through SKY movies and then the box office, i spotted the Robocop remake, and was just about to select it, when i thought I'd look on the Microsoft store to see how the price compared. It £5.49 on SKY Box Office, and £4.49 on the XBOX, both version were in HD. Was a little unsure how well the streaming would be on the Bone, but it worked absolutely fine. And i found the Kinect voice commands great to use, much easier than picking up your controller, to find out its gone to sleep. And having to wait, just so you can pause it, to grab a drink/snack/toilet break etc.

I'll certainly use it again. In fact I'm even thinking of buying a couple of TV boxsets to watch, as i should be able to watch on both my Bone and my Surface tablet.
