    Me too my 14 day trial lasted about 3 weeks for some reason. I mostly just used it for the easy completions though and now I have rare replay free to tide me over for a bit.

    Looking forward to seeing what gets added over time. :)

    Always liked this kind of service. Much cheaper than buying games solely for the gamerscore.

    Going to save my trial as well but once the library has a bit more I'll probably dive in.
    I'm always willing to help other players boost achievements even if I already have them. Just ask!

    Separate thing, there is a large sale with 300+ titles on sale up to 75% off for Gold members happening on the 30th June to 10th July. 10% less for silver members

    Should add to the article that if any games are removed they occur in November with advanced notice just for those that are waiting on using their trial.

    Did not know that. I am hoping that many of the wishlist games go on sale, but my bank account would prefer them not to. laugh

    They added games just in time for the bean dive!
    Among the best in my state and the world. I blog about it, and I tweet about things I take interest in: @Cornerscout

    Dilemma: I don't want to restart Resident Evil 6 on the Xbox One because I never finished the 360 edition :( Hopefully it goes backward compatible
    Is it me or isn't it very rare that a game that have been remastered (isn't that what you call an old gen game that have been updated & re-released on Xbox One like e.g Resident Evil 6) also goes Backwards compatibility? I can only think of 1 game I've seen do this & that's LIMBO & I'm pretty sure that only happened to keep Microsoft's promise of all upcoming GwG being BC
    Kicking Grass & Smoking Ass,wait,what?!?

    The Ezio Collection was released but all 3 games are BC, however I don't think it was a graphical remaster.
    BioShock series (3 games).
    Borderlands series.
    Is Halo Reach part of the Master Chief Collection?
    Darksiders series.

    Cannot think of any others.

    Sadly, Halo Reach is only a 360 game !

    I think I'll keep my trial in bank a little longer in order to see what's coming next.

    Just fyi, Bing/Microsoft rewards has a promo where you get a month for half price, and with the normal cost at level2 its pretty easy to keep game pass without ever paying.
    Look at me so I can finish!

    Still hesitant to pick up the game pass just yet at least until there is a few more games in there, then start the trial and see how that goes.
    Play for achievements. Play for fun. What's the craic hi.

    Just want to say thanks for reminding me that Bing Rewards exists, I didn't realise it was available in the UK until just now and will be making use of it as much as I can in the future!

    Going to wait to see what is offered in the ultimate game sale on Friday before I jump at the trial. Maybe some of the games I'm interested in will have a nice discount and I can just own them instead of renting them.

    You know you have until November and even then you have a few weeks notice if anything is actually removed?
