Yeah, I was thinking the same (if true).

MS could advertise those free games as, "Play these games for free on your 360 before you try out their sequels on the Xbox One!".

Crackdown for free? OH FUCK YEAH.

You have NO EXCUSES now, GAF. If you skipped this game before, that it. Game is excellent. Especially with a buddy.

EDIT: And where's Halo 3?!

The games themselves won't be IP blocked, just the verification process, you can download about 70% of the game then do the last bit via a VPN and everything will function ok.

Ooooh. I haven't played either. Looking forward to playing Crackdown finally. Played the demo a few year back and loved it. I was just too preoccupied in Halo at the time and didn't buy the full version.

I already downloaded games via VPN but that was a couple of years ago and on Win7; hope it works as well on Win8.

Crackdown, while good, can literally be bought for two quid over here. Dead Rising 2, again it's good, but it's also only worth a fiver these days.

Yet to come. With Halo 4's upcoming remake focused DLC in August, I wouldn't expect it any time soon either.

I've wanted to play Dead Rising 2, so that's great to see.

Crackdown is one of the best games I've played this gen, another goodie.

Yep, Halo 3 is the pinnacle of the series since it has the best level in the series which is of course "The Covenant"...pure perfection.

BTW great pickups if true, Crackdown is one of the best games of this gen plus I haven't played Dead Rising 2 so it's definitely welcome.

Take the Torchlight 2 team and have them reboot Too Human.

Seems like it, so far.

Even though I have it already, hopefully Dungeon Defenders is one of the games then, so that DD2 comes to X1. Was far from perfect, but DD was probably my favorite Arcade game.

Too Human got delisted as a Games on Demand title after Epic Games won the trial against Silicon Knights.

Your missing the point. I think Crackdwon and Dead Rising are good examples I don't think assassin creed 2 and halo 3 are. I was saying if they give them free now they might find a bigger audience on the next one...Nothing about it being Niche. Its about it being free and a fun game.

Crackdown is excellent for those who haven't played it at all yet - the game was so fun that I 100%'ed the game in just under a week in the release week the first time with no guides, nothing.

Dead Rising is great because I STILL have the original Dead Rising with the original case sealed for whenever I make time to play it, and then I can transition into the sequel for free.

And to think that I just got back home from picking up BioShock Infinite Premium Edition brand new and sealed for 30 - not counting all the other tons of games I have yet to play, I have no rush to jump into next-gen.

DR2 would be quite swell for me, I own it on pc but never installed it after hearing about giving the child medicine every set time other wise you fail, so IMO I would prefer the Off the Record version which removed that aspect and of course gives us middle aged frank west.

You must play Crackdown. It's the better game of the two. Crackdown 2 was rushed into production, and was half the game it could have been with more time.
