    I just noticed something all the games with gold are made by microsoft or are only on xbox, makes sense.
    Some are on Steam as well (DR2, Defense Grid)
    And I believe Assassins Creed 2 is on another system as well. Just saying.
    Dead Rising 2 is also multiplatform (PS3, 360, and PC).

    Must be an attempt to still sell copies of Dead Rising 2 after its given away to all XBL Gold members in two days laugh
    Or maybe it's because Xbox One and Dead Rising 3 are around the corner?
    Oh, I'm aware of that. It's just going to be significantly harder to sell an individual copy of Dead Rising 2 once everyone who is an XBL Gold member between the 16th and 31st of August has the ability to download it for their account permanently.
    Gamers have two hobbies: Playing games, and complaining about those games

    Yeah lol, I'm Also thinking its a last ditch effort to try and sell as much 360 stuff before the ONE releases because they're possibly thinking the sales of the old gen will die off when next gen hits.

    I played maybe 10 minutes of DMC4, otherwise i've never played any of these! Might have to consider picking it up

    Thats true. Like whenever you start a game it pops that microsoft studio logo thats what i mean.

    The theme of the Games for Gold is more that seems focused at sequels that will be appearing on XBox One. AC2 and DR2 are the obvious ones with their two sequels already announced as launch titles but a Crackdown 2 sequel seems to be me rumour mills. As well, another Fable game should be expected. The only game that doesn't fit that idea is Defence Grid but who knows.

    To be honest, i've been feeling like all games with Games with Gold are for promotion purposes (as in new game coming soon). I think all games (except for crackdown) have a sequel coming out soon, or just came out.
    Oh rly? Did you not see the Crackdown orb at the XboxOne release?

    At first this seemed like real exciting news to me, then I checked the Amazon.com prices for these titles.

    You'll be saving like $10. Weak.

    Not bad. Great if you're one of the rare few that don't own some of these
    I actually do not own a single one of those (although on 8/16, I'll have Dead Rising 2.)

    That's funny. I already have DMC4, SSFIV (and AE), Mega Man 10... and Dead Rising 2 will be free soon.
    The only game I don't have (except DR2) is RE6 but **** that POS. It's really bad.

    Can I just have the bag?

    Already own super street fighter 4 and resident evil 6. Already beat devil may cry 4 and am about to download dead rising 2 in 2 days... $59.99 for megaman 10 and a capcom carrying bag? What a steal!!! clap
    If you are reading this than you must be interested in what this has to say. Sorry to dissappint you

    I Think it was a very very bad deal!

    The games are very cheap to get used.
    Also its not all top games in my oppinion.

    And most people already have 1-3 of these games.

    Ive seen boxes for megaman 9, it was even part of some press passes. Would have been nice to see something like that for ten, instead of a DLC card.

    Guaranteed you could find all of these games and buy them at retail for less than half of that price. That's even factoring in the $10 it costs to download Mega Man 10. $30+ for a cheap looking bag? Fuck you Capcom.

    It is rumoured that there will be a crackdown sequel as it appeared on the dashboard when they revealed the Xbox One at E3.

    Is Dead Rising 2 really an essential? It's one of the worst games I ever played.
    Yeah! If anything the first should be there. Bad choice as usual Capcom.
