You've bought one of the three games and not had a chance to play it yet, but sold your 360 and don't want to fork out for the new version.
You're halfway through one of these games and don't want to start a new game.
You completed S1 and want your choices to continue on in S2.
You like achievements.

Just a few reasons why this could be useful. ;-)

While in the "my games and apps" app, i noticed that along with it being able to show the amount of games i own (353 of 520) that will benefit from X upgrade, it also now shows OG Xbox alongside the 360 option.

I hope state of decay makes BC at some point. I just loaded up the 360 version and made myself feel sick from the frame rate drops and intermittent lock ups

This is why I didn't buy it. 33% is an insulting discount when you've already paid for the game. Minecraft was reduced to £3.59 for 360 upgraders and many other titles (Castle Crashers, Bastion etc) were free if you'd already bought it.

It'll almost certainly be GWG before the second one is out, which is what I'm waiting for.

Yeh I'm not buying the same thing twice, especially this game :lol: I bought the DLC in a recent sale too :fp: what's wrong with me

The controls and character/car handling are incredibly frustrating too. I don't get why it's so highly praised.

It's a far bigger upgrade than the games you mentioned.

1080p
High Res Textures
Better Animation
Far longer draw distance
More Z's on screen
New characters
New weapons, cars.
Upgraded UI

It's still the same game though. Like I said, I wouldn't mind paying a little for it, as I did with Minecraft. I appreciate the extra features. But it's still like nearly £15. I'd expect a whole new game for that money.

It's still a janky, ugly game no matter how you want to spin it. The sequel will hardly be AAA material either.

Frame rate is janky, I'm hoping move from Cry Engine to Unreal 4 will fix it in the second game.

I wasn't trying to spin anything tho, just listing the upgrades it received...??
