You Can Now Download Xbox 360 Classic for Free
Xbox Live Gold now offers the option to download a classic Xbox 360 game for free. Any Xbox Live Gold subscriber on an Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Xbox Series S is eligible for this offer because this game is backward-compatible. Actually, the game isn’t offered as a part of Games With Gold. If you reside in Argentina, you can play the game through Games With Gold.
It’s a bonus free game that any individual can download, even if they don’t reside in Argentina, by creating an account with the area, which is something that is possible for anyone. Ikaruga is the game at issue. Ikaruga is the title of the game at hand.
If anything about this rings a bell, that’s because Games With Gold’s Argentina branch has previously offered this game at no cost. In fact, it is frequently available for free, so it’s probable that you may already have this game. It is not really public knowledge why it is regularly offered to Xbox Live Gold members in Argentina, but it seems to happen only in that particular region of South America.
