    Pure garbage. I expect nothing less from Microsoft these days as the Xbox one game list has been nothing but BC games and app games. This has more of both than anything xbox one and the ones they do have, who wants to play that garbage.

    The idea is sound, the execution is piss poor as with every thing MS does these days.

    It really is a great idea and I can see myself getting this at some point in the future when I get really behind on games.

    I was able to download Saints Row IV: Re-Elected (AU) by switching regions. There may be other region variants that are available.
    Don't see how I tried that and all I got was message please try again later with error code 0x800FFFF i typed it in on xbox.com and it says xbox service alert yet I was able to install farm sim 15 and halo 5.

    I even tried Japan for bioshock but it would not load up pass at all and given me same error code ad AU

    I think its an OK but not amazing list of games to START with. Like netflix its not something you will necessarily subscribe to all the time but dip in and out of for the cost of an hours work a month. The summer games drought seems perfect when the sun isnt shining. :P

    Good for GS whores :P

    If you can't access them from the Hub (you can access the hub in "My Games and Apps" -> "Memberships"), likely it's because they're not available in your region.

    how do you use the FREE TRIAL WITHOUT signing up? I can't find out how...
    You can't. You have to sign up to access the free trial.
    No I don't want to sign up for $9.99 per month. Just the free trial.

    You have to sign up, then go into settings and turn off auto renew.

    How are people even complaining about this???

    Halo 5 plus all DLC is free. Bioshocks. Some easy 360 completions. It's £8/month so even if you play for a few hours it's worth it.

    I just wish I had the time!
    Do you understand what 'free' means? The games are not free because you have to pay £8 a month to play them. It's a service that costs £8 a month, nothing is free about it.

    All I did was switch regions to Australia then searched for Saints Row IV Reelected on the store and it came up as ready to install.
    After it installed, I launched it and confirmed that it was the (AU) version.

    I've had no luck getting Bioshock (KR) - changed my xbox one location to South Korea, and the only Bioshocks that appears in the store are the Xbox one versions, and Infinite on 360.

    I also tried Gears 2 (JP) from the Japan marketplace but only got a "This offer is not valid in your region" message... so it's pretty useless to me.

    I manage to get saints row 4 (AU) to download by doing what outlawed torn said to do.

    I tried it with Japan for borderlands and gears 2 but keep getting that error code I don't think its available yet in Japan

    From Microsoft's Game Pass website:
    Xbox Game Pass will be available in at least 30 Xbox markets at launch, quickly growing to as many new markets as catalog availability permits. Markets supported include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK, United States.
    Australia is included (so the Australian SR4 works), but neither Japan nor South Korea is included, so the Japanese and Korea games do not work.

    Thanks. I thought it was weird that Bioshock KR wasn't available at all on the marketplace - but I've just realised the Bioshock KR page says physical only... if only I could read. facepalm

    I never bothered to know SEGA's Streets of Rage are on xbox. And they are! Thanks to gamepass I really enjoyed playing it, like old good days, well sort of ) Will play Halo5 and Mad Max and that's all games, among these 100 titles, half of them wereGwG, and half of them are played before or to bad to play. It's ok to pay 10$ for playing some games, you don't want to buy, I just hope they will replace or add some more good games, but not that shit.

    This service isn't for the types of folks who are on TA. I think it's more for people who are on the fence to get a console. This gives them a cheap way to have an instant game collection.

    Now then, what are the short games from the list that can be completed quickly?

    I still wait for the TA-Update to search for the games tagged as Xbox Game Pass
