    I find the xbox.com store links (360) are more reliable than the microsoft.com links (Xbox One).

    rather than

    https://www.microsoft.com/p/x/bp58jn2gvqs8
    Can confirm, shows up free through HHD's link to the Marketplace, then shows up on X1 in My Games & Apps/Ready To Install.

    This is normally a region issue. If the game is not available in the region your console is set to, it will not sure up in your ready to install. Could be a different issue, but I would recommend checking out that first.

    For me it just eventually shows up later on when the console finally figures out I deleted something.

    Good to know, I've never deleted something and wanted to install it again any time soon.

    This has happened to me before with other Xbox 360 titles and how i got them was to go to my Xbox 360 and download it there then it becomes a game I own.
    I know a lot of people probably do not still have their 360s, as a lot of my friends traded up to get the XB1 but I waited until I could afford it.
    Its worth a try if you still have a 360.
    That's what I did. I've had an XB1 for over 2 years now but still not ready to leave my 360 behind. On the One, Splinter Cell was looking like I might get charged, then later not appearing at all so I started up the 360 and after some incredible waiting time for pages to appear (why is that?), the game was there, available for free. It's ready to install on the One now. I expect they'll fix it properly soon.
    Less work, more play!

    Balls, I went to get Splinter cell last night and wasn't showing as free, not my Gold has expired today, so showing £8.99.

    Gold seems a little more expensive than usual in the UK. Can usually get for around £26 but only seems to be cheap Brazilian codes knocking around

    Wow, not one mention of Assault Android Cactus in the comments that I can see. AAC is a really addictive and fun game. Everyone likes different genres of course, but I found this a really great game.

    Probably because it's been free for 15 days now.

    If it's crashing while loading up, Xbox had a known issue earlier today that was causing this to happen to lots of games. Try again tomorrow.
