    Sonic All Stars Racing is cheaper through Xbox One 9.99. I think buying through the microsoft site can still allow downloads to 360 if it shows up at the marketplace.
    No they don't (atleast GwG games don't). I always redeem free GwG games from my 360 because otherwise they don't appear as purchased
    This is not true in my experience. I’ve downloaded several games as GWG such as the ones that were only available via the international Backwards compatible marketplaces. Not saying that’s not true for your situation. But just my experience, I’m able to go download those games on my 360 as well as my one. 🤷🏼‍♂️
    Results vary.

    Purchase and download on Xbox 360 -> always available on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One
    Purchase and download on Xbox One -> always available on Xbox One, sometimes available on Xbox 360
    Personally I cannot download de Blob 2 on Xbox 360 because I purchased it on Xbox One. I always purchase on Xbox 360 now unless it is cheaper on Xbox One.

    However both Frontlines and MX Unleashed can only be purchased for free on Xbox One at the moment.

    I redeemed GwG twice on my X1 and couldn't find them on my 360 (and they were not marked as purchased on X1), so I started using my 360 to redeem them, maybe it's different on different regions or games?

    wish they made the 360 resi games backwards compatible, my 360 is dead and would love to run through zero again (and stack with my xb1 version) hope they start to add backwards compatible titles again soon

    I have to agree with this - results in recent times has varied. I only ever redeem my 360 games via 360 or the old Xbox.com store.

    I think they are gradually moving to the model (like Xbox One) where you need to retain gold for access. 360 games were always free to gold members but keep forever regardless of live status.

    Not sure if it is intentional or not though. It seems like the 360 services are going end of life because and are no longer integrated with the new store. Buying from the new store will not get you a lifetime ownership license and will prevent you from redeeming on the 360 store.

    Didn't realize that Sonic Racing hadn't been on sale since 2018. Do note that it is 9.99 through the BC marketplace, but 14.99 through the 360 marketplace.

    You may well be right... I do think 360 is gradually being switched off. It’s a shame and I’m trying to finish all the games I’ve part completed on that system!

    The only thing, that interests me on this list is Resident Evil: CODE Veronica X. I haven't played that game since, it first released on the SEGA Dreamcast like two decades ago. With that said, I think I'm going to buy GUN this week for my 360, I really love that game and it was one of the first games I ever beat for the Xbox 360 back in the day.

    When will the 360 version of Resident evil Remake go on sale? It’s so sad that it keeps getting forgotten from the series‘ sales.

    I highly recommend for anyone who has yet to play it and likes arcade/kart racing games. This is also a pretty fun love letter to SEGA fans. I still want to add the first one to my collection, wondering if that will ever go on sale considering, like GT said, this one hasn't been on sale since 2018.

    RE Revelations 2 is showing as free for me and the season pass $3. So essentially dirt cheap for the full experience and completion compared to other 360 games with dlc nowadays :)

    It’s an episodic game — first episode is always free. Season pass is the other episodes.

    Am I crazy for considering getting the RE ORC expansion pass 1 dlc for full price? It seems it may not go on sale again - last time on sale was Mar 2016, almost 5 years ago. Got the 2nd pass, but thinking I may want the 1st to get the complete story/achievements
