    KinectKid333 said:Quick question. If I have a retail BC game that is on a disc and put it into my Xbox One disc drive, will it still work/can I still earn achievements for it?In a word, yes. You put the disc in and it downloads the BC package, and you can then play it while the disc is still in the drive.

    doowylloH said:sham93 said:Would have picked Ryse up if the dollar to pound exchange rate was as it should be.Speaking of Ryse....for those of you that have played it, is it worth picking up?It's OK. It's a hack-and-slash type game. As far as achievements go, the only one that is a pain is getting up to level 200 in multiplayer because it's a bit of a grind if you're not good at combat. It's worth $15, I think.

    Note that you can get the "Legendary Edition" of Ryse (physical game with all the DLC included) right now for $13.50 on Amazon.

    For those looking into Alan Wake & Forza Horizon 2 (Both 360 & One) look on ebay there are codes for cheaper than anywhere else. I've seen Alan Wake go for $5, I got 360 Horizon for $15 and just missed One Horizon for $15 by mere seconds.

    The 1000 Club Expansion Pack for Forza Horizon does not include any cars, so you need to buy extra cars to be able to get some of the achievments.

I'd like to buy it if it's BC, but I think it might be a typo.There was some other game that TA had the inside scoop on becoming BC before it actually went live recently, so this might be another one of those cases.
