We have a more precise time for the next Inside Xbox episode:

4pm UK time, 11am EST, 8am PST on August 19th. I'd guess the biggest focus will be on Gears 5 with that coming out September 6th (special edition)/10th (standard edition).

@BruceCM it may have been BC, but physical only without digital availability. So this means it's available digital now!

That means, IIRC, Deus Ex Human Revolution Director's Cut is the last of the games I want that are BC but not physically available. There's still some games I want that aren't BC though. (Eternal Sonata!)

@NEStalgia Eternal Sonata, huh? Good taste in games, there. Still got a physical copy of it, and an Xbox 360 to play it on, so I'll weather that particular storm alright.

Just about to go see Keira again.... I'm hoping doing her quest leads to something

@ThanosReXXX Haha, yeah, I have a PS3 physical copy as well. But the odds of me ever plugging the PS3 in again is exactly nil, so I still root for X1 BC!

@NEStalgia Lords of Shadow has been digital for nearly 7 months, was added to the 360 marketplace in January 2019. Still, by not knowing about it you get it for free

@Grumblevolcano Yep, I totally missed that, I last looked probably December or so when I bought 2, so the last time I looked it wasn't digital. That's just fun that I get it for free!

Now if only they do DX:HR Director's Cut I'd have my dream BC collection (mostly.) It's already BC....just not digitally available (and confused by the fact that the non-Director's version is already BC and digital....but that one looks garbage... )

Sweet, I never finished lords of shadow. I'll get torchlight to have it but honestly I'm just waiting on II to hit the switch. Haven't played forza since the first two so I'll give it a go.

I love how 343i is open about posting videos of bugs. Sometimes, when stuff breaks, it's hilarious.

How do you redeem a Game with Gold when it's installed as part of Game Pass? I can't find a way on dashboard nor website. I am talking about Gears of War 4.

Is Judgment essential to the Gears story or is it ok to skip to 4 and return back later? I'm rather wary about the "Road to Gears 5" challenges in Gears 4.

EDIT: Nevermind, found out that while it's a prequel there's also bonus Gears of War 3 content present. Should have time to beat Judgment and 4.

Ha. I guess I derped a bit when I saw one of the GwG games was Torchlight. Somehow I saw it as Torchlight 2 (which would be weird, given that it's getting an XB1 port on the 3rd of next month).

So, I guess I'll eventually have both on XB1.

Fun Diablo-style dungeon crawler by the way; it even had (and I think still has) some ex-Blizzard staff who worked on the original Diablo on the dev team.

@BlueOcean Isnt' there a "buy to own" button? Which is then $0.00? Or is that just X360 games?

Gears 5 campaign is being shown off at Gamescom (August 19th), had a feeling it would be like that though not sure where the "more" comes in. All we know is the E3 2018 and E3 2019 teasers, right?

Also, I notice they seem to have quietly changed the name to "XBox Cloud" from "XCloud"....which is probably due to the fact that the latter sounds like a very, very, very different sort of service......

I'm not sure I like the design of that controller. The actual controller part looks fine, but the way it attaches, any vigorous gaming is going to see them split off and down goes the phone (or even if the other side holds the phone, down goes the character.) This is one area where Switch really has an advantage with steel bayonet mounts. I think a phone adaptor really needs to be a single piece rather than separate R/L.

@NEStalgia I looked everywhere but I can't find it, I even tried private session on the internet browser. I'm subscribed to Ultimate but we only get a chance for getting a Game with Gold (normally). I guess I'll have to contact customer support to know how this is done.
