The new week for deals starts every Tuesday on Xbox Live, with every new list of deals comes a brand new list of what to actually expect on the Deals with Gold offers. The good man known as Xbox Live's own Major Nelson (Mr Larry Hyrb) is kind enough to post the new weekly deals on his blog, which can be found at MajorNeslon.com. The Deals with Gold applies to both Xbox One and Xbox 360 games, so do not feel left out if you still have not made the transition to current generation. The only requirement to gain access to these titles is an existing Xbox Live Gold subscription.
When Xbox one release, people were worried they might not carry forward some of the incredible titles they had on Xbox 360. However in 2015 they announced that they would bring backwards comparability to the Xbox One and since then they have been working to add to the list of titles playable with the number standing at an impressive 325 titles.
Backwards compatibility allows those of us on Xbox One to go back and play great titles we once loved thanks to Game's with Gold, Xbox one players can get access to 4 games a month; 2 Xbox One titles and 2 Xbox 360 titles. Thanks to backward compatibility, this lets players play games with friends who might still be on the Xbox 360.
The list of February's Games with Gold was announced today on MajorNelson.com and we can see that there appears to be a nice mix of titles in next months line up. The Games with Gold, for people who do not know, are free games given out to Xbox Live Gold subscribers, the game is simply claimed and then that game is yours forever; even if you cancel your subscription.
