Xbox 360, Xbox Live By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Billy Franklin

    Im a major Microsoft fan and have never written a bad word about them but seeing what they are offering compared to what Playstation offer im starting to wonder am I supporting the wrong company. this is a pile of cr@p most of the free games were rubbish

    • Nathaniel Frost

      stop wondering lol. For me I’ll be switching consoles with the next generation. Started off loving the PS2 and didn’t think I would ever give the 360 a chance, and this generation I’ve only used the 360 console. Now it’s back to Sony lol

      • Billy Franklin

        I could be another one to jump ship and go the PS4 route .. Im split now between both consoles where as few weeks ago i put deposit on my Xbox one im seriously considering moving my deposit to a ps4

        • usrev

          I got my ps3 in 2011, had 360 since a year after launch. the 360 started off very good but it died(died as in lack of games) around 2010 (which is why I got a ps3)

          for the most part I’m very satisfied. there are a lot of games to play with variety. the ability to upgrade the hard drive with any laptop drive was great, I put a 500gb hard drive in my ps3 for $50. it’s also much better with netflix than xbox 360.

          everything I don’t like about the ps3 is getting addressed with the ps4. one thing that is annoying is every game has to be downloaded THEN installed. and since psn+ games are all downloaded it could take all day to download a game you wanted.

          the other thing is lack of party chat, I love party chat on xbox.

          I really hate the ps3 controller. it’s not comfortable for shooters. aiming sucks imo. I got used to it but 360 controller is just easier to use

          all of those issues are being addressed with ps4, and honestly those are really my only complaints. the PSN+ titles more than made my ps3 purchase worth it.

          I’l go back to xbox when they get their act together. when sony’s ps3 was failing they did exactly what was needed to get the gamers back, make games and have affordable services that reward gamers. xbox hasn’t done that for years.

  • Seneika

    I hope they are preparing something good involving Halo 3 and the whole Halo franchise. Something like a grand finale. And I mean grand. Perhaps Halo 3 for free (as announced) accompanied by good offers like all the franchise at 50% discount.

    • roozbeh, again

      if they do that i would be pleased but i think the crowd here wont be

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i expected nothing more which is sad. this is disrespectful to the xbox live community as a whole and i just wish that somebody WOULD READ THESE COMMENTS AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT ALREADY!!!. sorry, but come on! you can get rainbow vegas for almost free or for pennies really, used of course. i loved that game when it came out 6 or 7 years ago. i still don’t have an xbox1 preordered and i might not at this point. not because of this but just everything. this is just the rotten, poisoned, cherry on top. thank you. ugh, i wish i could just give up my addiction to achievements. trophies (psn) are not as good, which is ok, but i love achievments. i beat Last of Us and got one trophy, which is cool because the game was so good but i still love my chievos and cheeba, oh, and cheetos. am i done?

    • roozbeh, again

      ‘am i done?’
      i guess you are.

      this truly is disappointing but to not buy an xbox one because of it is odd in my view.
      a fellow achievement hunter eh? i relate. i just love that system so much.

  • Jason Owens

    im sorry but what a joke Magic 2013 and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas. lolol

  • Jason Owens

    this is disrespectful big time to the everyone on xbox live and it shows just how much thay care about everyone on there to give us games this old . sony gives newer games like for real and im a big xbox fan lol . do you know what this is doing pushing more and more ppl to sony for the newer free games and better treatment.

  • Jason Owens

    Microsoft could have gave out gta 4 with the dlcs for free . That would have scored some big points with ppl

  • fart man

    vegas is $19.99????? How long ago? i bought mine for $2.00 at gamestop!

  • Alejandro Morales ☠

    Oh, come on! After a good spree of deals (Assassins Creed 2, Crackdown and Dead Rising 2 with Case 0) do you put this “games”? Are you serious?

  • xbox rules

    Doesn’t matter to me I’m getting a free xbox one and a ps4 by being a manager at gamestop.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      your parents must be so proud.

      • roozbeh, again

        their son’s/daughter’s most impressive achievement ever in life.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          scary.

  • xbox rules

    That sucks before I knew I was going to get a free xbox one and a ps4 I paid them off

  • xbox rules

    Once you transfer your account from the 360 to the run u can not recover ur account back on the 360

    • Boss Saucier

      False.

      • roozbeh, again

        what the hell is the run?

        • Boss Saucier

          While on the subject: What is u and ur?

          • roozbeh, again

            A letter in the English language I guess.
            what the second one is you ask? beats me.

          • Christopher

            Ur; was an important Sumerian city-state in ancient Mesopotamia located at the site of modern Tell el-Muqayyar in Iraq’s Dhi Qar Governorate. One of the oldest cities in Mesopotamia, it was an important center of Sumerian culture after c. 3000 b.c. and the birthplace of Abraham.

          • roozbeh, again

            it is also the initials of the university of Rochester.
            ur was the capital i think.

  • NadoHawk6

    Why not Magic 2014?

  • xbox rules

    I don’t understand why people hate so much on the 1 and the ps4 I’ve played on both. Both are equally the same. Both look like giant vhs tape box and both companies helped each other out in a way

    • Christopher

      “vhs tape box”

      You mean a VCR? The internet has been ablaze with comments since E3 about the Xbox One’s design, comparing it to an old VCR. Speaking as someone old enough to have vivid memories of home video pre-DVD, I honestly don’t see. Personally I think it looks more like a PVR than anything else.

  • Don Mattrick

    Magic 2013? Are you serious? And a 6 year old Tom Clancy game? Stop cheaping out Microsoft.

    • roozbeh, again

      I hate you! f*ck you! you nearly killed xbox.

      • martin_m95

        are you sure this is the real don mattrick

        • roozbeh, again

          i know it aint. :D
          im just having a laugh with this guy

  • xHalofan232x

    No one plays Magic but the people who actually play Magic! PS plus has better free games than this! Quit taking the cheap way and give us better games.

  • Maximum Gamer

    Change this games NOW or we cancel gold subscription !!!!!

    • martin_m95

      AGREEED
      wait… what?

      • Maximum Gamer

        haha i’m not going to renew my subscription anymore..sorry for my bad english :(

        • martin_m95

          oh ok

        • roozbeh, again

          O.o

  • fart man

    I was a PS fan for a long time till i played the original xbox. Since that day i have been a xbox fan well till today anyway. Sorry Playstation for ever leaving!

  • mosticus

    4-5 days before the 1st and 16th make a short list of the BEST games you (microsoft) can offer. Have the gamers vote on what they feel is the best game for GWG, then give us that game instead of just throwing the dumpster games at us.

    • roozbeh, again

      i want that to happen. but i doubt it will

      • mosticus

        right……wishful thinking. sure would be good for gamers though

        • roozbeh, again

          if you are reading this microsoft exec, make it happen

        • Gustavo

          Not just for games, but for them as well… That way they would give gamers (or most of them) a choice to get what they really want AND they would actually MAKE the GWG something really great.

          Give us free games and saying “Hey loyal customer, here are some free games to compensate what you pay for our services, now enjoy because we chose them with love” isn’t working….

          • mosticus

            agreed

    • todd Wright

      everyone copy this and tweet it to major nelson

      • mosticus

        Even better, right on…..

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    yay. not.

  • ryder4life22187

    Just will grab rsv and transfer it to my PC case my disc stops working. Think again ms magic I hardly see ppl playing.

    • roozbeh, again

      transferring to your pc? im not following.

      • ryder4life22187

        Transfer to my PC as more hdd storage space so never have to delete or redownload anything

        • roozbeh, again

          how do you transfer to your pc?

  • Ian

    I liked the suggestion I read before about MS putting out a list of games they would be wiling to make free and allow fans to vote on the ones they would like to see go up for GwG. That way, Microsoft creates an interactive buzz with fans and fans enjoy the fact that we has a choice in the matter. And we can blame the community rather than MS if the game we want doesn’t get enough votes and MS has a say by providing a list of only games they are willing to make free.
    Some people will still complain, because that’s what these threads are for apparently, but I think it would make for a better program than what is currently available.

  • KrisXX

    If you are going to copy SONY and offer free game, at least do some NEW ones. I mean, no need to ALWAYS be greedy. Remember when Major claimed the XBOX DMR was HERE TO STAY and got all pissy with that reporter about it. Yeah, way to act like an adult.

    • roozbeh, again

      magic is new.
      not liking it though

    • roozbeh, again

      check his twitter page. he is being a good sport about it.
      ‘flipping switches since 2003′
      lol

  • Andrew

    If Microsoft don’t listen we need to start a “Leave Xbox” Petition online. Seriously, I’ve had enough of us loyal Xbox gamers being treated like we’re second rate. We pay more than people that have PS+ and still get less quality and older games.

    • martin_m95

      start it up ill be the first to sign it

      • Andrew

        I’ll give them a little time to step up and see if they mention this. If not I’m moving to Sony as well.

    • roozbeh, again

      we had nothing 4 months ago. im grateful for this program but ms really needs to pick up on the games. give them till december. if they dont wow us by then, than move to sony.

      real rewards for achievements? now we are talking microsoft.

      IM AM SO PLEASED

  • Anonymous

    Are you kidding me????? Magic and Rainbow Six? Need I mention that RS was released in 2006?

    Microsoft, you are seriously falling behind. You do not listen to others’ suggestions, and publish third-rate products.

    • todd Wright

      i am happy they are giving rainbow six its my favorite game and more people will play it but magic wtf i wont even waste my hard drive space on that and a have a 320GIG

      • Anonymous

        I’m sure it’s a good game; however, Microsoft needs to look at what their competitors are doing. Sony publishes AAA after AAA title for Playstation Plus subscribers, AND their basic multiplayer is free.

        • John Wills

          This months games for playstation + are hardly triple A

          • Hairybeasty

            “this months”…….. Xbox hasn’t put anything above b quality games since this thing started and a b rating is being very very generous.

          • John Wills

            I hear you man. You could always buy new games like you used to though.

          • Hairybeasty

            The reason this program was started was to thank the community. the quality of their appreciation is why most have a issue with Microsoft.

          • John Wills

            I appreciate it personally but I could see why people would be mad. On the other hand I think why even bother complaining. Free is free.

          • Hairybeasty

            you complain to try to make changes… i can give the toilet paper i wiped with to people for free. would you take it since it is free?

          • Guest

            NO but that has to be the worst analogy ever.

          • Hairybeasty

            but “free is free”!

          • John Wills

            That has to be the worst comparison ever. I will take my free game and say thank you. Its something to play till gta 5 comes out.

    • Chuck

      Why does it matter when the game was released? What should be asked is, is the game any good. If they only give away C rated games then I can understand your complaint.

      • Anonymous

        @disqus_7XFfCG6NaL:disqus that’s an excellent point. But I feel like they should either release more modern games or let the players decide.

  • roozbeh, again

    whats with all the split rumors for the xbox division?

  • http://fyfps.tumblr.com/ Giorgio Tsoukolas

    Wow. Micro$oft you suck.

      • Monstrous Tard

        Who doesn’t cry when they are being rap3d?

  • mosticus

    There is still time to do the right thing and can this stupid release. I have probably a false hope that these comments get read…. Just in case they do now would be a good time for people to suggest a reasonable game for GWG instead of off topic comments and stuff. What kind of games do the rest of you suggest that would be fair and reasonable?

    • Dylan

      I’ve said it already, but Splinter Cell: Conviction makes a lot of sense to me.

      Or even the HD remasters.

      • mosticus

        Definitely a good choice.

      • Jason Owens

        i would love if Splinter Cell: Conviction was one of the free games

    • martin_m95

      i would love another open world game
      maybe borderlands or fallout 3 or gta 4

  • deadbox102

    Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah.!!! Stop it, I’m gonna pee!!! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! While I appreciate the program, MS, you are definitely showing your heart isn’t behind it. You have only started the program to be able to say “Hey, we give you free games too.”.

    • Disturbed_Court_Jester

      That and as a marketing tool to sell sequels.

  • m1nh0ca

    Xbox Live Rewards changed and, once again, people outside US are screwed up.

    In US, 5.000 credits = $5. You can buy a $4,99 (former 400 MSP). And I’m not counting they have Bing Rewards as well.
    In UK, 5.000 credits = £3,35. A 400 MSP game costs £3,49. WTF??

    I don’t know in other places, but I assume they are having a similar situation.
    Please, Microsoft, stop… just stop that!

    Your competitor doesn’t need marketing or PR as you’re acting like this, almost selling their console and burying yours.

    • E.Nich

      In Spain 5.000 credits are 2,43€?? How can that be possible? And the 400MSP equivalent are now 4,79€?? It was way better before, with MSP, than now.

      • m1nh0ca

        Holy cow… they REALLY screwed Spain up!

        On the other countries in the Eurozone, 5000 credits = 4,05€. Still less than a 400 MSP game, but way more than the Spanish value.

        Una gran mierda, estoy seguro en decir.

    • ryder4life22187

      Your not missing anything. Your acting like your missing a ton of stuff the rewards program is giving out its almost the same basic bs.

      • m1nh0ca

        Equality. This is the keyword, as everybody here is a gamer and are supporting the same system.

    • Timothy Wolf Bernard

      who say that 5000 credits is $5. Why would it be less in the UK? Dont say convertor rates. $5 is $5 and 5pound is 5pound

      • m1nh0ca

        It’s in the FAQ in the Rewards webpage. Their exchange rate was always bad when we think about Europe… but giving less than the price of a game, when somewhere else it’s the same amount, is ridiculous.

        And what about the 800 MSP converted into £6,80 while a 800 MSP game turned into £6,99?

        As I told below, there’s no equality, even if we are supporting the same system.

  • Rino Ibanez

    wow really?…cant believe this company still has loyal fans….idiots.

    • Monstrous Tard

      Or like receiving a quarter for your bday… Oh wait…

  • Flawless

    cmon guys in sure the negotiations to bring us a 7 year old game were intense!

  • Jesse

    Wow.. Playstation is giving out AAA title, while Microsoft is giving out bargain bin games? That’s like tipping your waiter a penny. A bigger slap in the face than no tip, symbolicly.

  • Cashley_Cole

    So after paying £40 a year for 4 years this is all I get? A card game and a 7 year old game that I could pick up for 99p? I’m all for free games but at least let us decide what games we should have put of a list or increase the quality of the games your bringing us.

    • Jason Owens

      amen dude i thank the xbox live ppl should pick what game is going to be free

      • martin_m95

        me too

  • jessejohanna

    IMO, R6 Vegas is a better handout than the boring Crackdown, but the fact is everything they have given out is bottom of the barrel stuff that you can get for $2-5 elsewhere. Major XBox fan for the last 12 years, owned over 200 games total, never ever considering the XBox One and this is one of the reasons why. Have you seen what Sony gives out to their customers Microsoft?

  • whoaitsn

    Free is Free.

    • XboxFan13

      “Free is Free” lol ok I just took a massive dump and its Free! Your more than entitled to it if you want it. Your comment is what’s wrong with this community. It actually is not free. You pay for Gold and they started this program. So basically paying for your membership is paying for the games as well. Playstation plus is cheaper and you get Triple A games. We are getting shafted and you are supporting it.

      • Lord Pexer

        He is right, free is free, and you don’t have to take it. You get these games, if you want them, with your gold membership.

        We have payed for Gold for years so we could play online and have access to applications and special discounts, and now, for the same price, we receive games. No one is forcing you to play or even consider downloading the titles.

      • whoaitsn

        Then get a Playstation. The choice is ultimately yours. If you don’t like the choices that the Microsoft team is offering you then you do have choices. Get a Wii and you don’t have to bother with no program at all such as this or get a Playstation and still complain about the offering of games that they give you through a program such as this.

    • martin_m95

      here take a spoiled hotdog for free

      • whoaitsn

        Well I’m sorry but I believe I remember that early this summer that this program started after about 10+ years of the Xbox Live Service being up and running with no such program. They give you free games regardless if they are terrible or have been in the bargain bin for years. When they began this program it wasn’t like they were going to give you a game that is only a year or two old. That would make no sense. IT would be a slap in the face to the developer of the game as they are still trying to recoup lost revenue that they would have had if there wasn’t a gamestop.

  • XboxFan13

    I vote for a new PR team and to have Major Nelson removed from his position. For falsely advertising that rainbow six Vegas is 19.99 when actually it is only available used at GameStop or your local used game store for a few dollars. This game was 19.99 when it was actual available in retail stores. This game has been removed from the shelves long ago and is not manufactured anymore. I’m sick of Major Nelson’s lies and the team running Microsoft. You know Xbox could be the ultimate experience with the right team in place but this money hungry greedy lying team has to go now! I say start a petition. Or better yet go to Sony!

    • AC130

      Real mature buddy taking a dump on the messenger who posts what M$ gives him. Go to sony please

      • XboxFan13

        Still trolling me I see lol wow you must not have anything better to do than bending over and letting Microsoft have its way with you. And if you do your research Major Nelson is apart of the PR team in which he is partially responsible for this post. So take your trolling somewhere else or do your research. :) have a nice day and thanks for the attention fanboy.

        • AC130

          You know not what trolling is. You are trolling as it is an inflammatory remark. My comment is not extraneous, inflammatory although you may be butt hurt so it would explain it on part. Fanboy someone who has fanatical devotion to one thing. Maybe you missed by post where I laughed at this deal a fanboy would not do that. So get over it and your pathetic shows of loyalty to Sony.

          • XboxFan13

            Actually, trolling someone is to follow someone around harassing them for the fun of it in which you are doing seeing how my post wasn’t directed to you. Further more I have never owned a playstation or Sony product. Strictly Microsoft and xbox’s so there you go assuming again. You lack any common sense or intelligence. I pay for gold subscription in which I care about what I’m receiving for my money. I have the right to speak when needed. As for you my friend you follow me around bc you have nothing more to do with your time than harass people who are standing up to your company you obsess over.

          • AC130

            In internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a forum, chat room, or blog), either accidental or with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

    • Jayarih

      MajorNelson is going by the DIGITAL price not disc, Digital on any service is generally more than what you can buy physically

    • roozbeh, again

      major nelson? of all the people in the team you could think of he is the one you want removed?
      you are new to this blog huh?

  • CrimsonDethOmen

    Stop comparing ps plus to this program. They aren’t the same. Ps plus is just prolonged renting, you don’t own those titles. These are free to keep, no catch.

    • Flawless

      the catch is these games are extremely old and can be found in a bargain bin for $5 at a local store with the exception of Magic 2013.

      • DarkMaturus

        Okay. 10 bucks worth of free games per month. Essentially, Xbox Live pays you to be a member eh? :P

        • Flawless

          ive owned every game theyve gave out for free years ago.

    • martin_m95

      the catch is that theyre soo bad that nobody wants to keep them

    • evilfangs .

      Catch is although PS+ isn’t required on the PS3 and you’re renting these games, the case won’t be the same on PS4 in which you need a PS+ account to play online thus these games you rent won’t actually be rented seeing as you would never cancel your PS+ subscription, which means in the end you will keep these “rented” games forever.

      • roozbeh, again

        no guarantees ps plus will be as good as it is now. thats why i aint buying anything at launch

        • evilfangs .

          Sony and PS+ doesn’t need to give 6 games away each month like it does now, all it needs to do is give away one AAA title away a month and it will be better then what Microsoft is doing.

          AC3 compared to Magic 2013. I know what I and 99% of other gamers would rather have.

          • martin_m95

            yeah maybe

          • roozbeh, again

            you know what is the offering for the ps4 when it comes out?
            let me give you a hint.
            a drive club demo.

          • evilfangs .

            DriveClub PS+ edition is exactly the same as Killer instant in the sense the demo is the game but if you want the full game you buy the cars and tracks in micro transactions, or you can just buy the full game at retail.

            PS4 is also getting at least 10 different free to play games at launch.

            I’m more interested in the Xbox one launch exclusives which is why I’m getting the Xbox one first.

          • roozbeh, again

            well there is a difference, killer instinct is free. no subs, nothing.
            but you need ps plus to be able to get driveclub ps plus edition for free.

          • evilfangs .

            You’re going to have PS+ anyway to play online so like it matters.

            It’s exactly like saying why do we need to pay for Gold to access Netflix. It’s the same answer, because we don’t buy a console to play offline we buy a console to play online and to play online you need to pay for it, so it doesn’t matter if these apps are behind a pay wall because you would have already paid gold / PS+ to play online games.

          • roozbeh, again

            “It’s the same answer, because we don’t buy a console to play offline we buy a console to play online and to play online you need to pay for it, so it doesn’t matter if these apps are behind a pay wall because you would have already paid gold / PS+ to play online games.”

            i could think of a good few million people who buy consoles for offline play. out of 78 million xbox 360s only 50 million have access to xbl.

            plus people could just connect online and not want to pay. i think a majority of ps3 users are upset that you have to pay now. so they probably will just have a single player experience with minor social capabilities with the internet

    • Lord Pexer

      I don’t get why people are downvoting your comment, which is a fact. :)

  • Luke Melville

    Gamers be intense. It’s interesting that everyone is complaining “this is all I get” from Xbox Gold. Remember you have a heap of other benefits from Xbox Live Gold Membership and this is an added bonus. When you signed up, no doubt a few years ago, there was no mention of free games included in the membership! So why are you now complaining that M$ has decided to give you a little more for having a membership? Seems ridiculous. because it’s not why you got the membership in the first place.

    • roozbeh, again

      this program was made for appreciation for the fans. we are grateful for the program but this level of appreciation is insulting. hopefully microsoft will redeem itself

    • Flawless

      what would those heap of benefits for paying for gold be? would it be the apps (which are free on every other device/service) would it be the online play? (which has been free on every other service) would it be the deal of the week? (which steam and psn have better deals) lets face it the only reason theyre giving these games away is to counteract the subs theyre losing to PS+

      • roozbeh, again

        ‘what would those heap of benefits for paying for gold be?’

        im guessing you dont have a ps3. go play online with their insecure and slow servers. that is were the money that ms gets from us goes. an optimum experience online. unlike playstation’s.
        the free games suck in comparison to playstation but dont fool yourself. xbox live is still light years ahead of psn

        • evilfangs .

          With Sony and PS4 gaining more users who will be paying for PS+ on PS4 it won’t be soon before Sony has the servers to be able to compete against Microsofts servers. Then what does Microsoft have as an advantage over Sony?

          • roozbeh, again

            i will believe that when i see it. sony i dont think has the means to compete against ms at least internet wise. azure is just too damn big

        • Flawless

          all the games play the same on PSN,the download servers are slow and thats it. the reason i dont play my ps3 is cause i dont like the interface :shrug:

          • roozbeh, again

            The lag on PSN for me is so much worse compared to XBL.
            Online wise PSN has always been behind. And this is coming from a former predominant PS fanboy

      • Future_Chief_Keef_

        If I’m not mistaken, you practically paid or rented “free” games on PS plus. 50 dollars a year and you get free games…. Riiiiiiiiiiight.

        • Flawless

          so youd rather pay $60 to MS for the right just to play online and nothing else then? LOL

          • ryder4life22187

            who here really pays 60 bucks for live anyway. My next year of live cost me 28 bucks not even close to 60.

          • Flawless

            true,but thats not the point.

          • roozbeh, again

            that kinda is a selling point though

          • Flawless

            not really plenty of people pay $60 a year :shrug:

          • roozbeh, again

            terrible shoppers pay 60/year for live.
            to those who do, work on your shopping. its really easy to find one.

          • Future_Chief_Keef_

            But who purchases a console and no games? That’s like buying furniture being homeless.

  • roozbeh, again

    http://kotaku com/xbox-one-tv-features-might-not-require-gold-subscriptio-1233241787

    ms you got to get better at sending your message to people.

    • Future_Chief_Keef_

      they announced that when the DRM policy happened.

      • roozbeh, again

        the tv features? the media in total said otherwise.

        • Future_Chief_Keef_

          When Mattrick was working for them he said that they were working around if your internet cuts off you still can watch tv.

          • roozbeh, again

            i didnt hear that. thanks!

      • Dylan

        And then they announced that it would require Gold.

  • martin_m95

    i hope nobody downloads the card game

    • Mariusz Gromada

      Actually, the card game is way better than the Rainbow Six :D

      • martin_m95

        old game > game nobody wants

        • Lord Pexer

          I want Magic 2013, so I’m afraid that your statement is incorrect now. :)

          • martin_m95

            1 guy cant make my statement incorrect it requires alot more

          • roozbeh, again

            unless he provides some awesome evidents.
            just sayin…

          • martin_m95

            i bet hes gonna make multiple accounts and reply to me with them

          • roozbeh, again

            nope, he aint that bored.

          • Lord Pexer

            Nope, I’m too busy playing Magic 2013. :)

          • Dylan

            haha

          • Lord Pexer

            I’m afraid that I perfectly can, since your statement says ‘game nobody wants’.

            And since I, for one, want that game, it makes your statement invalid.

          • martin_m95

            havent you learned not to take everything literally
            its only you and 2-3 other people that want the game which means that pretty much nobody wants it

          • roozbeh, again

            no, that means the majority doesnt want it.

          • martin_m95

            dont take everything litterally
            magic has one of the poorest fanbases

          • roozbeh, again

            actually it has a pretty good fanbase for a card game.
            not my type of game but i cant deny it has a good deal of fans

          • Lord Pexer

            2-3 other people? Really? Are you really that naive, or are you just pretending to be so that you could express your anger better?

          • martin_m95

            show me who else prefers that game than an aaa game like gta 4

          • roozbeh, again

            the gta haters maybe. :)

          • martin_m95

            i said an aaa game i didnt say it has to be gta

          • Lord Pexer

            “An AAA game like GTA 4″

          • martin_m95

          • Lord Pexer

            I’m just quoting what you said, only with better grammar and punctuation.

          • martin_m95

            oh great another grammar nazi
            you guys are stubborn as hell
            your not worth my time

            you’re not worth my time*

          • Lord Pexer

            I’m not a grammar nazi, I’m just someone who thinks that good grammar, spelling, and punctuation is necessary if you want to have a decent argument.

          • roozbeh, again

            No capitalization for the first word of a sentence?
            You are a shame to us Nazis

          • martin_m95

            i didnt see you doing it in most of your comments

          • roozbeh, again

            im kiddin,
            trolololololololol

          • martin_m95

            .

          • roozbeh, again

            i realized.
            epic reply fail!

          • roozbeh, again

            whoops. that was supposed to be in reply to someone else.

          • rrcplus

            I’ll gladly play Magic 2013 over GTA4. That game was overrated. Sorry.

          • martin_m95

            i didnt say it has to be gta

          • roozbeh, again

            i think it would be around a few thousand. not as much as crackdown or dead rising 2

          • Lord Pexer

            I have had a good deal of linguistic lessons actually.
            Thank you for your interest in my education.

  • Frank

    Magic? Really? geese I guess Microsoft has to cater to all, next thing u know next month free game will have barbie in it

    • roozbeh, again

      ‘geez’

  • MelanysMusicBox

    Is there any country that gets a different game?

    I’ve heard South Africa won’t get “Rainbow Six: Vegas” because it’s banned there – therefore they’ll get “Shadowrun”… but what’s about Magic?

    • martin_m95

      nope

    • イサム オミナエ

      Japan only got Magic.
      m$ really hate this country.

      • roozbeh, again

        what? i thought you get rb6 in the 16th.

        well there goes the idea that japan is open to all video games

        • イサム オミナエ

          No news about the second game.
          Since they didn’t gave dead rising arcade., I don’t doubt.

          • roozbeh, again

            i do doubt it, alot. you will get a second game. dead rising case zero was a third game that was not promised.
            we were all promised 2 games on month. you will get a game

  • Rino Ibanez

    ..loyal sheeples are funny.

  • chris

    Hmmmmm… Assassin’s Creed 3 or Magic 2013…. I wonder….

    • martin_m95

      ac3

    • roozbeh, again

      if you are in europe that is.

      • chris

        What did the US get?

        • roozbeh, again

          vita games mostly. i think they we also got a gta. havent checked it out yet

          • chris

            Damn Vita,

          • roozbeh, again

            i second that. most terrible system i have bought. but after gamescom im giving it a second chance.
            but all in all hand helds suck

        • Dylan

          Resident Evil Chronicles Collection HD, Ico HD, Rayman Origins (vita), and some other stuff

  • deadbox102

    MS, instead offering old games which were popular when they came out, which means the majority of your customer base has played it, offer an obscure game. A diamond in the rough you might say.

  • Future_Chief_Keef_

    It’s funny how people complain. Yeah I would prefer picking a game of your choice for free rather than having the employees picking them for you. However I never played the previous free games with gold before anyways.

  • Money$oft really?

    If Microsoft is just gonna keep giving old games for free I would rather not get anything free.

    • roozbeh, again

      i would love a few old classics.

      • martin_m95

        yeah but not older than 4 year and not some arcade games from gendres almost nobody play

        • roozbeh, again

          i’ll give you that. but there are some awesome oldies i would dig that would exceed that age.
          bully please.

          • AC130

            Seriously Bully? It is on sale for less then 5 atm and has been on sale plenty of times. RDR I would agree with.

          • roozbeh, again

            rdr aint 4 years old. the discussion was about old games that you would want for free

          • Lord Pexer

            Bully is on sale until tomorrow, I would strongly suggest you buy it, if you have the opportunity. :)

          • roozbeh, again

            i have it. like all rockstar games. scholarship edition
            i would love a free digital copy though. the theme could awesome classics or something

          • beardyman3218

            It’s only £2.99. Great deal for a great game. It actually holds up really well, rockstar done a great job with the textures.

  • Martin Fortune

    Everyone keeps on saying that theses games are yours to keep. I want to know from someone who was gold and got one if these games and is now silver if the game still works.

    • Future_Chief_Keef_

      yours to keep forever. This isnt PS plus

      • Nathaniel Frost

        lol with these games would rather have rentals from PS Plus

        • martin_m95

          me 2

    • roozbeh, again

      i can confirm that. i did it with fable 3. if you are silver you can play it.
      you can redownload it with a silver account also

      • Martin Fortune

        Thanks, this^ is what I wanted to know, don’t know how much longer I’ll be gold. I’m fed up paying for a premium service with adverts. When what do I really get for my money? Not much, I think, not much.

        • roozbeh, again

          i think you get your money’s worth. the ads really arent that much of an issue.

          but that could be because i just got a 35$ pre paid card for 14 months. :)

          • beardyman3218

            Yes, i have had the same deal on amazon, better to get live online as it is a lot cheaper i paid £30 for 14 months of live and an avatar item.

    • martin_m95

      theyre yours to keep but that month the games are really not worth it
