The next batch of games had been announced for the month of May, the line up is a nice varying set of games which is sure to catch your eye in one way, shape or form.

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.

Before you start making up your Christmas List you may want to take a look at the offers as there are some killer deals (see above, The Witcher 3 for £12.50. I'm getting that.)
