Ah, I think I got hold of the wrong end of the stick here - I'd thought we were talking about Xbox 360 game updates on actual 360 consoles, not the XBO. Sorry!

If you haven't played a game for a while then that's likely why it popped up, because it's since been overwritten with another games title update.

I must admit that I've not heard of this. I've got quite a few 360 games on my hard drive... I wasn't aware of any limitation in the number of title updates that can be stored (beyond the size of the hard drive, of course).

The 360 handled updates differently and in the early days had a strict size limit (which is why in the later days games started bundling their updates with free DLC... ie get a free car, or weapon etc while the rest of the download was for bug fixes and content for the people who paid to unlock the rest of the cars etc)

The limit has since been removed (which is why there was an uproar after MS had sold so many Xbox's without a HDD which meant some people couldn't play the latest games at the time without purchasing a HDD peripheral)

but...

It sounds like it's Xbox 360 games on Xbox 1 so what I said is completely irrelevant.

Maybe during testing it's been found these games don't play nice with a future OS update, or the new Xbox 1 X hardware itself and these patches are just to stop a crash etc.

ie don't expect a 4k update.

more heat than light wrote:Yeah, the 'main' account in this instance would be yours. Sign into the kids console (let's call this console B), and set it as your home Xbox. Then download all the games you want them to have access to. All accounts on here should now have Live access for any game.

On console A only your profile will have access to games unless you are also signed in. You'll have full online access and will be able to play games against the kids profiles on console B.

It's difficult to explain via the medium of text, but I'm sure it'll become clear when you start setting things up.

Great. I get it now :fp:
Also Thx BID0.

I'd forgotten I've bought Halo5 digitally too in the past but your post reminded me of that. Looks like my boys will have some more XB1 games to play at Xmas :toot:

That could be it! Does that mean the next new dashboard update is imminent? :o

For back compat games they update an emulator, seeing as the X1X will run the emulator in an apparent upgraded fashion (going by reports), older games may need a small patch to run.

In other news, they are working on Fable Anniversary for BC. :wub:

A question to you fine folks, my father in law has gotten his grandkids an Xbox one Minecraft bundle for Xmas, he's an organised man apparently. Now I've agreed to get it all ready, patch it, download the game etc, my question is can I do this without signing in or creating an account? I know you need an account to tie the game to but can I download it then let them 'claim' it when the first fire it up?

My instinct tells me ill have to create an account for them and use that to patch the console and download the game but some kind of anonymous download and patch option would be cool.

apparently it isn't confirmed and might be fake, but pretty cool if true as I was going to buy someone in my family the LotR game so now I can just lend them my Live account

A touch lacking in genre variety, but some great titles there.

I recommend not reading too much into these kinds of leaks, they pop up this time every month and are almost always fake.

I thought the Shadow or Mordor sequel was already out but apparently that's October 10th, so it's highly unlikely they would give out practically the same (better from what I've heard) game for free within the same week almost. So it's likely fake, sorry for posting :fp:

They've got a big marketing deal in place for the sequel so including the first game in this month's games would make sense.

I think it's happened a few times (Tomb Raider, Forza 5) but they've always been made available a few months beforehand. I would have thought it would cannibalise sales if you do it at the same time because you're your own competition

I almost want to buy a bone now, literally jsut to replay the Halo games. I could get a replacement 360, but i want the 1080p version of Halo 3 for the 10 year anniversary (thats today btw folks) and id like all the Campaigns in one game with the MCC, but im not willing to pay more than 100 quid or so seeing as the XBX will likely gut the cost of the OG bone pretty soon. Been scouring ebay and gooseberry fool for a while now but nothing so far.

The S was on sale a couple of weeks ago. MCC is only €14 on CD KEYS. Go look for a trade in. Halo 3 is the only game in MCC that runs locked 60FPS and as such is easily the best game of the collection.
