In Xbox Live Brazil there is no Castlevania nor Meet the Robinsons.
Looks like we're having The Maw for the 3rd time. Awful.

They better give us Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for Meet the Robinsons.

Yeeah! Microsoft re-listed Meet the Robinsons on the EU Marketplace (at least in Spain).
So happy to get the actual game instead of a replacement

I still only use my 360, but might upgrade to the newest next gen console in a year or so. I occasionally 'downloaded" Xbox One Games with Gold games to my account where they would be ready for me when I upgrade. However, it is not working with Inside whenever I try it. (I've tried in Firefox and Microsoft Edge browsers.) It doesn't even say "Free" next to the game and doesn't "see my device." Has Microsoft removed this ability?

I'm confused too. I downloaded it and can play it but for some reason it looks like I don't actually "own" it. It just says I've downloaded the free trial and I need to pay $19.99 for buy to own which doesn't make sense.

^ well it does always say for xbox one GWG "play this with gold or buy to own". You never own xbox one GWG, just have a special gold license for as long as your account also has gold.

It is further complicated by games with trials though, usually there's a drop down menu on the store page with three dots that you can select what version you are downloading. Sometimes it's very unclear though with GWG offerings. I'd say as long you can get achievements and all the achievements (and it's not a timed/limited trial or anything) you should be good, but you won't ever own it through GWG.
Fear is the mindkiller.

The MS store has become confusing lately. There is no longer a confirmation that it has been downloaded previously. Often the Install on Device fails if you don't have an xbox one yet. The only real confirmation that the game has been attached to your account is if the button changes from Purchase to Purchase for a Friend.

Does anyone know the precise time of day for the GWG update? I know it's the 1st and 15th of the month, of course, but what exact time, PDT?
I don't play games very often. :( If you have a close GamerScore, add me! We'll compete. :)

I can't say for the exact time, sorry. I'm on the west coast as well though and if it helps at all, I've always been able to go on the very last day of the month and download it right at midnight when my free bandwidth time starts. Same for the 15th.. I go on the night of the 15th/morning of the 16th at midnight and there it is. So, whatever time they become available it's before midnight each night. The Castlevania one I think was available in the afternoon. I remember I made a post on this topic about it but I can't recall the exact time.

Editing to add that it's 10pm PST right now and the Meet the Robbinsons is showing as free. I have 2hrs before I can try and download it still or it will count against my monthly bandwidth. I don't have Xbox One so not sure if the other game is free yet.
