Next Games With Gold Game Announced

In competition with Sony, Microsoft announced their Games with Gold initiative at E3. They will provide Xbox Live Gold subscribers with 2 free games a month, one at the beginning of the month, and one in the middle of the month.

Major Nelson announced this morning that Gold Subscribers can download the 4 year oldtower defense game,  Defense Grid: The Awakening from today until the 15th of the month. If compared to this months Europe’s PS+ Subscription, which includes Battlefield 3, Saints Row The Third and Payday: The Heist for the PS3 alone, Microsoft seems to be lagging behind a bit.

What do you think?

    More B.S. from M$. This is another reason to buy a Sony PS4 at launch instead of an XBO!

      It seems that MS go from one PR mishap to the next. Do you think their games with gold will be better for the Xbox One?

        They should wait and do it for that system but, we are talking about M$! LOL

          I’m sure they feel the need to compete with Sony and PS+. Doesn’t seem to be going very well though. If Gold wasn’t required for multiplayer I wouldn’t subscribe. Would you?
