Also, cross-platform play (XB1/Steam) is coming to the Xbox One version of Rocket League later today. If it's anything like PS4/Steam, it should be playlist matchmaking and private games, but not parties.

That is a GREAT fucking month of free games.

I mean, The Crew drags it down, but that's still a great month.

Been waiting for XCom to go BC since the beginning. Still a fucking great game.

I've also never played Super Meat Boy.

Limbo is free on Xbox One right now. Who knows if its an error like that Fallout 4 thing a few days ago.

I read Limbo and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 are both free in celebration of E3 right now.

Red Dead Redemption should be available now for Xbox One BC. There's a number of add-ons that are currently free. Most seem to be for multi-player (so not Undead Nightmare).

The Digital Foundry comparison video showed the XB1 version running better than 360 as well. Still at 30 FPS, but with fewer, and less harsh dips.

I'm not sure on the whole digital rights thing and where to start looking - my Xbox One console and all my games where stolen. I had my settings to where you had to enter a password to get into my account, so I'm thinking my Live account is secure. I'm just curious on the digital rights. When I buy a new system, do I sign into my account and I'm able to load up my games? Or are the digital rights all stored on the stolen system? Just trying to figure out as it comes to insurance claim on missing items/ trying to restore my collection.

Yeah, digital games are tied to your Xbox Live/Microsoft account. You should be able to see them here:
https://account.xbox.com/MyGames

Or your purchase history here (this might only be for Xbox 360):
https://live.xbox.com/download/history

If you get a new console, you'll want to set it as your new "home" Xbox One. It mainly simplifies licences, and allows other local users to be able to use digital games you own, and share XBL Gold benefits.
https://support.xbox.com/games/game-setup/my-home-xbox

Even if you have a passkey to access your account, you should probably still change your XBL/Microsoft account password. If you used the Xbox's web browser at all, might be good to change passwords to any accounts you might've logged in to with that.

If you used media apps like Netflix, same sorta thing. I know Netflix has a "sign out of all devices" option on its website. I don't know if or how logins are shared between local users on an Xbox One. Don't know how vulnerable any such accounts might be.

If you haven't already, it might be a good idea to contact Xbox support to let them know what happened. They might have a better idea about what to do.

Thanks for all the helpful links. I used the chat with MS to see if they would flag as stolen but all they said was call cops.

The two consoles are the only thing I think I may have a chance at getting back due to what cops said but not sure. Fry's Electronics had the Halo bundle for $299 and no tax today when I was getting a new TV but a lot of uncertainty on my end still.

Best Buy had a 4-hour Flash Sale this morning and decided to replace my system.

For $320 after tax I am getting the 1TB console that comes with a controller and The Division, a battery charging station, a Halo controller that is valued at $70 and Halo 5.

If my original system surfaces, I will figure out what I want to do with it then but maybe best to have a fresh start. Will figure out all my home system/digital rights stuff.

I got a GSOD from my XBone on Friday after a short power outage. Ended up having to do the factory reset with a USB stick, but it worked. The shit thing was that it sat on that green screen for like two days because after the outage I didn't turn that TV back on and when I did I had a real WTF moment before I started Googling.
