Well this was a mistake. BB sent this via USPS to me last week. Left California and ended up in Philadelphia. Wtf. I am in AZ. It says it is process of getting to my but I don't even know about that. Going to be a minimum of 2 days late and possibly more. So annoying.

June's Games With Gold :

Get ready to enjoy some great Games with Gold in June! On Xbox One, rescue Sequin Land once more in the ridiculously fun platformer Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse and fix your customers a drink in the engaging Coffee Talk. On the Xbox 360, and Xbox One via Backward Compatibility, invade the Earth in the sci-fi madcap adventure Destroy All Humans! and challenge your reflexes in the fast-paced shooter Sine Mora

Destroy All Humans looks cool and, ironically, I never played it back in the day... that said, it's being remade for X1 later this year.

IIRC, it was a humorous game.

Folks don't miss Sine Mora at the back half of the month. It's a really outstanding Shmup that really hasn't aged at all.

Wow this is cool. Sort of getting rid of game/dlc codes: https://www.polygon.com/2020/6/8/212...digital-direct

I guess. But now you can’t sell off extras you don’t want or already owned.

Or buy cheap codes for that matter.

and that is probably the main reason behind this, rather than convenience for the user.

As someone who has neither bought nor sold codes, that means nothing to me.

On the other hand, if you ever sell the console they should still be available to anyone you sell it to. So a little bump to resale value?

It's most certainly not going to work like that. It will attach to your account that you use on the console.

Yup. From the Polygon piece:

Note that according to Microsoft anything you redeem in this manner will be attached to the first account that redeems it. You also have the option to skip redemption during setup. To redeem those items later on you’ll need to navigate to your account, and then find a menu option labeled “Included with this Xbox.” Alternately, you can also find that same menu option in your library under the “Full Library” tab.

Only if you actually redeem it:

I guess there's a question if it's all or nothing in terms of redemption, like if you can redeem some games and not others.

This has been posted on the official XBox website so I'm hoping that this is not an exclusive:

Star Wars: Squadrons

I hate that I need a credit card to get free 360 games. This is also free on PSN (the enhanced PS4 edition) and Steam. I didn't realize they didn't sell an enhanced Xbox One edition of this game, only the backward compatible 360 version.

Do you need a credit card? My MS account uses my Paypal.

Add your card with the wrong exp date and CVC. Get the game. Delete the saved card. They aren’t charging anything to it.

Yep. I actually still have a long past expired card attached to my account, and although it asks me to pick the card to redeem the free titles, it never actually runs any kind of authorization against it.

Ha, I had a long expired card on there too but apparently they finally removed it or something.

I've never tried it but couldn't you also use a store bought VISA card? Toss like $5 on it, grab $4 worth of lunch on the way home and use the $1 VISA card as your permanent form of payment.
