Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is now free for Gold members through the end of the month. It's backwards-compatible on Xbox One.

Today's the last day for Gold members to get TFU for free.

Microsoft Unveils $10 Monthly Gaming Subscription Service For Xbox One

Coming this spring to the Xbox One, the Xbox Game Pass will give console owners access to over 100 Xbox One and backwards compatible games for $9.99 a month.

The Xbox Game Pass is not a streaming service, like PlayStation Now, but a game download subscription along the lines of EA Access. Subscribers who pay the $9.99 monthly fee will be able to choose from games like Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2, NBA 2K16 and SoulCalibur II (examples given in Microsoft’s official announcement,) downloading them directly to their system and playing them as if they were purchased digitally. Subscribers will be able to purchase the games in the catalog at a discount (20 percent off games, 10 percent off add-ons,) adding them permanently to their Xbox library.

The Xbox Game Pass will start rolling out today to select members of the Xbox Insider program today, with plans to launch exclusively for Xbox Live Gold subscribers before going live for all Xbox One owners this spring.

My account croaked right in time to download that, so basically yeah, but hey, I have it on disc anyway so I'll just play it that way.  It's sorta meh as gaming goes but it's got amazing graphics and fun places to explore at least.  Still wasn't a great game IMHO.  Just kinda dull.  Cool action figures though.

So this Xbox Gamer Pass is basically what Nintendo is doing with the Switch, where you get access to different demos every month? Pretty lame. I'll stick to just buying 2-3 games a year or staying 6 months behind and getting everything for a discount.

They're not demos. They're full games. And as long as you're paying the $10/month to subscribe, you can play them whenever you want.

...

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is now available through backwards-compatibility. People have been giving Xbox all kinds of "where is this game" **** for months and months, so it's nice to finally have this one out of the way.
