  1. digital free games


    for the past 3 days ive tried to install digital free games that i got from the xbox store onto my xbox one. One game installed and the other 3 I'm having problems with. One of the 3 games got to 60% and stopped. That was 3 days ago so i tried installing
    one of the other games and it wouldnt install. Same with the other game. Its been doing this for 3 days. It would stop installing then i would try to install again and it again would stop installing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm really frustrated.
    I tried installing them offline too and the installation keeps stopping.

    :)

    digital free games

    Sorry to hear it. Which games are they? Are you getting any type of error code when this happens? Have you tried power cycling the console by holding the power button on it for 10 seconds until it shuts down or checking to see if there's an update for
    the console pending?

    Digital free games

    Yes you can so long as it was added via the account you're trying to download from. If it's a backwards compatible title it can be redownloaded and played at any time. If it's an Xbox One title then you can play it so long as you have an active gold membership.

    You can redownload the games by going to My Games and Apps then Ready to Install.

    Digital only console

    Since you still can buy "non-digital" consoles with disc drive, you can still get such a console if you want to keep your disc based games. The consoles with disc drive can also be used to download games digitally.

    As for getting a digital version for your disc purchase, that probably won't happen, as the publishers would face the problem of their game not selling anymore.

    Imagine a person buying the game on disc. Then telling Microsoft, they went digital, get the download version for free, and then sell the disc.

    The new disc owner tells Microsoft they went digital, gets the free download and sells the disc.

    Then the new disc owner tells Microsoft they went digital, gets the free download and sells the disc.

    Then the new disc owner tells Microsoft they went digital, gets the free download and sells the disc.

    Then the new disc owner tells Microsoft they went digital, gets the free download and sells the disc.

    etc...

    Eventually, the whole world owns the game digitally, but the game was really only sold once, causing a huge loss for the game's publisher.

    So if you still want to keep your discs, simply don't buy the all digital version of the Xbox One console.
