They must think Gold customers really love them some rallying (and maybe they do!).

3 did 2, but worse and 4 is also better than 3. Can't have the best saints trow when they either strawberry float the characters from 2 so they may as well be different people or remove one of the best completely

I'll be honest, I don't really have a dog in this fight. I thought 3 was pretty good though.

I don't think they'll put 3 on as it's had a remaster so the owners will be wanting to make more on it.

I love Saints Row 2. It was far better than the contemporary GTA game.

Hotshot racing has a substantial demo on Xbox insider app. It’s incredible, think Outrun x Daytona x Virtua Racing. It’s going for the old Sega vibe and it’s nailed it.

I’m playing this now. Well, I say “playing”, but there’s not really any game in there. I’d have thought there would be at least some interaction during the conversations - selecting replies etc.

It’s OK though. Just a bit too passive.

EDIT: I’m kind of wishing I’d selected an incongruously offensive name for my character now.

That's a great PSA for those of us still to play it.

Summer Game Fest Demo Event Coming July 21 to an Xbox One Near You

If you’ve been lucky enough to attend E3, PAX, gamescom or another show in the past you know that above-and-beyond the spectacle of these shows, one of the great joys of attending a marquee gaming event is being able to get your hands on games – lots of games. Getting to try them out early and discover lots of news games is awesome.

While we can’t recreate the experience of attending a big show entirely, we can help you get your hands on lots of cool new games early. As announced by Geoff Keighley as part of Summer Games Fest, Xbox is proud to reveal that our Summer Games Fest Demo Event will be live on Xbox One from July 21 to July 27.

We’ll have more than 60 brand-new game demos for upcoming, unreleased Xbox games available to check out for free!
Look for the special Game Fest Demo tile on the Xbox One Dashboard that week to find the collection of available demos.

A few things to keep in mind:

These are not normal “game demos.”
Typically, the demos you see in our Demo channel are created after the game is completed (or nearly completed) and represent the final version. Many of these demos are early, and some are for games that won’t be out for quite some time. We’ve never done this before; what that means is that you’ll get to experience these games early – some way early – which is awesome, but you should also note that these games will continue to evolve and be polished as they near release. In other words, think of these as akin to “show floor demos” and not necessarily indicative of the final product. And speaking as somebody who has worked in the industry for a while – that’s not a bad thing! In fact, being able to check out games early and then see how they evolve is freakin’ awesome!

These demos will only be up on the Xbox Dashboard for a week. Some might be re-published to the Demo channel later, but many will simply evaporate at the end of the week, so make sure to check them out while you can.

The developers would love to hear what you think. Hit them up on social media or through their websites. If you like the game – tell them! If you have constructive criticism, they would love to hear that too.

As I mentioned, we’ll have a lot of games – somewhere between 75 and 100 when the dust settles. We’ll announce the full list closer to July 21 but here are some highlights:

Games
Cris Tales
Destroy All Humans
Haven
Hellpoint
Skatebird
The Vale: Shadow of the Crown
Raji: An Acient Epic
Welcome to Elk

Ooh, that's an interesting idea. If such is a success and few problems arise from such, I'd be glad to get on board every year. Wonder what other games will be available? Maybe those that get announced at the Xbox event?

My Xbox One X got stuck on the green boot up screen today. Required 3 attempts of forcing the machine off to get it to work. Bodes well.

You can’t say things like that in here.
