    This one of many things that tick me off with MS and xbox one also why are they no trials for these ID games I am not paying for a game I might liike because the developers won't put out a trial
    Their isn't a tab because their was on the 360 and it was ignored by most. Their are quite a few games in the program that you probably know of but just don't know that they were apart of it. Half the games with gold come from the program.
    Half? More like nearly all of them. Pity that most do not release overseas.

However, Magic Origins is, and is supposedly due out on Friday.I Don't disagree that they were released, but pause the video at 0:22 and you can clearly see both QUBE and BOI.This is because the official promo runs July 27th through August 31st, hence the "five weeks".

    Xbox is blurring the line between low budget and AAA titles, and I'm not to happy about it. Back on the 360, these games would have been called arcade titles, and you knew imidiately before you bought them that they weren't going to be the same experience as a full release title.

    Now they are throwing them all into the mix, and while I am all for equality in the games market, steam has a big problem with shovelware and quality control because of this very same situation. Personally, I want to know right off the bat if I'm in for a fully fledged experience or not. That's not to say indie or lower profile games are bad, but they for the most part don't offer the same quality or length or polish. I'd just like them to be distinguished better is all...

    What, the price difference between them wasn't enough of a giveaway? Sorry, can't talk now, I'm too busy buying all those brand new AAA games that are on the Xbox Store for $20.

Half the games with gold come from the program.To my understanding, they were ignored by most because the indie games back then were shit, and it was not available world wide as the indie games is now. I tried one indie/community game then on my US account (the golf game with your x360 avatar), wasn't very good, but one of the best of it's time and that says something about the quality.

    I found out why a lot of these games don't get released and that's because our rating board charge to much to get the game classified here, check the this link to find out more

    From what I've read it's around $500 for other countries.

    I dn't have to switch regions at all to play.
    I log into my uk account, change region to US, purchase and set US download going then switch region back to UK.
    The game continues to download and is accessible thru my UK settings.
    Only have to chnge region for the initial purchase.

    Offgamers limited charge me £40 for $60 so new games never cost me more than £40 to purchase.

    As I understand it, EU trade rules actually disallow MS from limiting access to other marketplaces. OTOH, MS have been actively making things difficult for us in Australia. I've at times been able to switch regions (to the US) and purchase without issue, then other times it simply won't accept my regular payment methods. It's a bit frustrating.

    I never said I had to play it in a different region, as once it downloads I then switch to my Aussie account and play.

It's a bit frustrating.MS has nothing to do with getting games rated in Australia or anywhere else unless they are the ones publishing it, and therefore that have to go through the classification board.

    As I believe it the ID@XBOX games are published by the developer and MS doesn't charge platform fees, but the devs are the ones who have to pay to get their games through the classification boards for all the countries around the world they want to release it in.

    If I'm wrong someone will surely post it.
