God it really is getting ridiculous buying games

you forgot the part that says over and over and over....

I'm pretty sure that XBLA pertains to the 360 only as there is no XBLA on the xbone, XBLA on xbone is not a thing in other words. Seeing as how there is only one XBLA game on that list (singular), what I said makes sense no matter how much you might want to think it doesn't.

What I understand is that people are being sold lower quality and re-sold old products in an attempt for companies to make money, that comes with consequences. Now making money is not the problem, that is all well and good. Why I'm mad is that companies and corporations try to take advantage of me as a consumer by selling me garbage. (xbone? another pacman port? brokeband 4?) At this rate my love of gaming will be destroyed by my distaste for cutthroat capitalism and disrespectful business tactics. The xbox360 is being abandoned, not outdone...the xbla ports of many classics work just fine and because of BC they can continue to be sold to current gen customers. Abandoning them is a choice, it is not because of technical limitations.

How could I act like the beiber songs don't exist when I payed $300 for rockband and every time I enter the in game DLC store they throw the newest songs in my grill first thing? It's not just beiber either though. The bigger issue is with the constant lack of decent music because either Harmonix is too cheap to pay for the licensing (the most likely scenario considering they contracted madkatz to make their gear and the game is glitchy/broken) or many artists are charging loot piles to license music (more unlikely, metallica will license fuel to anyone with a roll of quarters). The rockband series on x360 didn't have this problem and there is no reason why rockband on current gen systems should be below par, especially when the x360 versions are vastly superior and an obvious upgrade from the crap they are shoveling to consumers now.

What on Earth are they doing releasing Justin Bieber tracks on Rock Band!? Surely that's a massive contradiction.
Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

No MP in Homefront 2 other than CO-OP I believe...

What a waste. I loved the MP in the first game...

I am wondering.... do pac-man, ms pac man and Galaga count as new games? E.G are they actually Xbox One games with new achievements, or if I already own them on the 360/XB1 BC and have all 200GS on each one, will there be no achievement related benefit to getting them?

Anyone know if Masquerade: The Baubles of Doom is made by the same people as made DeathSpank? Game doesn't look to bad, graphics look similar to DeathSpank... really miss those games.
