But that also means that moving from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One will involve one crucial step: backing up your old saved games to move them to the new console. More →

Every free Xbox One and Xbox 360 game you can download in August

Last month, Microsoft improved its Games with Gold program dramatically by giving Xbox One owners an additional free game to download every month. Xbox has always been a step behind PlayStation when it comes to rewarding subscribers of its pay-to-play online service, but this addition brings Games with Gold and PS Plus much closer to parity.

Of all the huge announcements at E3 this year, few received as much fanfare as the addition of backward compatibility on Xbox One. After years of hard work, Microsoft had finally cracked the code.

Games with Gold is back for another month of free games, and I can’t believe that Pool Nation FX is taking up a slot on the Xbox One side for the third consecutive month. There must be other Xbox One developers who want their games highlighted on Games with Gold. Pool Nation FX is a great game – the best pool simulator I’ve ever played – but three months is mind-boggling.

Although there are a few highly anticipated games on the way over the next 30 days, it’s still winter, which means the game release schedule is about as slow as it’s going to be all year.
