While the current list is set to reach its next milestone soon, it's going to expand by quite a bit later on this year, as Microsoft announced at E3 that it's going to add support for games that were made for the original Xbox. The only game that we know is coming from this is Crimson Skies, so far.
Also, since we just passed the halfway point in the month, that means that more of this month's Games with Gold are available for Xbox Live Gold members to claim. Runbow (Xbox One) is available until August 15, and you can grab LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean (Xbox 360) until the end of the month.
