Seems the 360 is pretty much dead now :( They've even stopped adding new games to the Backwards Compatibility list.
I think they are keeping a few of them back for GwG.
Bill Stillwell, the head of the BC program basically said they have some stuff ready but publishers want to wait for sure for them to be released:

Hope it is something like that, the BC program has gone dead quiet for a while, there was ACIII then nothing.

Been over a month so it isn't like there couldn't have been anything ready before then given how many games are being made BC. Quietest month of BC ever, hoping it is just because of OG BC seeing as every other month there was 10+ games added.

I honestly think it's mostly because of OG. I think they want to have a good chunk of games available at launch, and they want it to be a surprise. I figured they'd send it to the Insider program by now, but even that has been really quiet with just a few bug fixes. I think they're planning something big for the fall update.

I also think they're going to run these in the 360 emulator and will have all of the current OG BC games playable on One, but that may just be wishful thinking

The Game of Thrones game is pretty OK. It is very slow to start, but by the end is quite solid. But the DLC is totally unnecessary, particularly from an achievement stand-point.

I expected the Dragon Age: Origins DLC to have a sale this week or last since that seems to be a trend with GwG. Disappointed that they're not.

It's actually fairly rare for DLC for a GwG game to be discounted at the same time. It happens, but not often.

It has seemed like a trend to me, though the timing may be off, I'll admit to not paying super close attention. The AC3 Season Pass and individual DLC packs were recently on sale and it was recently a GwG. The Borderlands 2 DLC goes on sale often enough to not even notice. Some Watch Dogs DLC just went on sale, but that might have been the wrong platform.

As I said, it at least seemed like a trend; and one I could get behind. There's still a chance for next week, I guess. Or every week after that, but the way these sales are headed we probably won't see much until the next big sale, maybe a Black Friday event? Maybe a Countdown to Christmas/New Year? Either of those is a long way off.

Wonder if we are going to reach a full month of pure crap in sales, there are so many good titles that they can put on sale if they wanted, gonna see if Nintendo has something to offer this week laugh

Well the Xbox 360 doesn't has all those crappy indie games with inflated ratios...

But yeah, at least Microsoft could put their games on sale. I'm sure some kids who don't have Keflings or Viva Pinatas would get them.

Only 4 in a month, still makes it the lowest point they have had in the program.

Man some people can't be pleased I'm sure some of the man power is being focused on the original xbox BC.

And so it continues. You would really hope that they would be pushing all arcade games from .99-$4.99 so the publishers could all hop on a big cash grab. They know people who still play 360 (myself included) just can't pay the same price for the arcade games that have been price like that since launch. It's not worth the $5 10 years later.
