  • Interesting hmm might give this a go when I get my Xbox updated
  • This would actually be perfect for me, I have so many games I haven't even started yet.
  • I've had this for years already...
  • I have three games on my Xbox One. Two haven't been played in a year (I really should just delete them and get space on my hard drive back).
