    Whoever buys the 360 version now, can you please post whether it pops that you have the Xone version? I would like to know (basically I don't want to be the guinea pig lol)
    Yes you can still get the Xbox One AC4 season pass after getting it for the 360. I did it last month when the 360 season pass was on sale for 9.99. After you buy the 360 season pass the AC4 season pass should show up as free on either xbox.com or xbox one marketplace. Not sure how long they will be doing this offer. AC4 is over a year old so possibly it is permanent.
    Thanks for the info. Since someone later said that it didn't transfer for him... I wont risk it. I'm just going to get the One version. It's highly unlikely I will play the 360 version anyway lol.
    Yeah Buddy!!!

    Is the Blackbeard MP pack part of the season pass for AC4? Or would I have to purchase both of them?

    I have to ask "Are all 50 Achievements obtainable still in NFS Carbon or will I be waisting my time and money buying it?"

    I thought you would need to buy on 360 first to get on both.
    Not the other way around??
    Yeah, can anyone confirm that buying the XBO version now, will give you the 360 version as well?
    It only gets you both if you buy the 360 version. The reason is that upgrades like this and Call of Duty were intended for people to buy it on the 360 so they can upgrade to the One at a later date and not have to rebuy. Downgrading consoles isn't a concern.

Better & cheaper to get Freedom Cry & Blackbeard DLC separately for the achievements.Based on Freedom Cry's Xbox.com page it costs $9.99 alone so there is absolutely no reason not to buy the season pass with this sale having it cost the same amount.

    Jacky0310 said:Just a questions, AC4 and GW3 only available for US account? I'm not able to download from HK...GwG can be different in some regions, but those are the games for Hong Kong. I assume you live in Hong Kong, and not in China (I don't believe AC and Gears are available in China). I would contact XBL Support.

    NickHawkeye said:yeah as I understand it you have to buy the 360 season pass to be able to play both, if you purchase the ONE season pass then you would have to buy it again on the 360.Correct. In New Zealand the Xbox 360 Season Pass (which includes the Xbox One Season Pass) costs $37.95, whereas the Xbox One Season Pass normally costs $24.95. Nevertheless I paid the extra for the Xbox 360 Season Pass last month to get both. You still have to purchase the Xbox One Season Pass, but when you sign into XBL with the account you purchased the Xbox 360 Season Pass with it will show the price as $0.00.

    Whole bunch of crap and another COD, yet again.

    Aren't most of the need for speed servers closed down at this point? EA needs to stop trying to milk games that half of the achievements can't be obtained because they are so outdated that the servers closed.

    Arent some of the servers shut down on a couple of the need for speed games? I wish they wouldn't sale games missing a potentially major component for the game. In my opinion these games are being sold incomplete

In my opinion these games are being sold incompleteProStreet is the only game on sale sale (actually the only current or last gen I think) that has servers closed. Even with that, and ignoring the fact that $5 is likely worth it for most fans for the single player, I'd say it's up to the customer to know what they're buying and to decide whether lack of online is a problem for them.

EA just don't care.
