  1. AC4 is great but I bought it from cdkeys for £6 before chirstmas and im pretty sure it dropped as low as £3 after that. Great game though if you haven’t already got it. Best one after AC2 for me.

  2. Is this the first full retail game to released on Gold/Plus? MS really giving eveything they got at the minute.

    • No the first I’m aware of on Xbox one was Rayman Legends. I could be wrong that might not be first but it’s my most notable.

      Never mind even tho I’ve got this on Ps4 it’s a good game to get.

  3. Gears 3 will be nice to pick up. It’s a likely candidate for backwards compatibility.
