  • Matthew Bunton

    Games with Gold is so disappointing. The selection thus far has been poor no doubt Microsoft is saving Halo 3 for the last month of the offer. The games offered have been so old and out of date that you can buy them online from most retailers for a couple of pounds.

    I look at the PSN store and each month they are getting far better games and offers, Microsoft really need to do a lot better than this.

    • xPutNameHerex

      It’ll be interesting to see how it continues on into the next-generation. Microsoft already has people paying for Gold just for online multiplayer, and the Games with Gold promotion is just that: a promotion. Clearly added just to say “we have free games too!”. Sony isn’t like that since PS+ isn’t required for online multiplayer, so they have to make the PS+ offering actually compelling on its own.

      But PS+ will be required for online multiplayer on the PS4. Drive Club, the first “free” game on the PS4 is about as “free” as Killer Instinct will be with Gold on the Xbox One. You get a bare-bone essential for the price of the subscription, but have to buy the rest of the game piecemeal if you want the actual full-game experience. So I don’t think the differences between the two services will be as pronounced once the next-gen hits us.

      For Microsoft, that moment can’t seem to come soon enough.

      • Hogwild333

        Games with Gold was announced to only be going through the end of this year and no XB1 support has been announced. Killer Instinct is just a free to play game which doesn’t really count. Here is what I want from Games for Gold:

        1. Announce it is a permanent offering
        2. Announce that XB1 games will be offered each month
        3. Start offering more recent games

        Give me those three things and then GFG can be in the same discussion as PS+

        • Matthew Bunton

          I think that it is far too soon to expect them to offer free Xbox One games each month possibly in a few years time but not now.

          • Hogwild333

            Sony is doing it day 1 so I feel it is reasonable to ask the same of Microsoft. That being said, I would be happy even if they announced that XB1 games will be coming 6 months down the road once the catalog of games has grown.

          • Matthew Bunton

            Really Sony is going to give away free PS4 titles each month at launch are you sure?

            I am surprised at hearing that as it would surely alienate the game publishers, along with reducing a lucrative revenue.

          • Bush O Connor

            they will probably push the free 2 play games for the first few months, but sony have said that the ps+ offer will carry over to the ps4. MS have said only up till the launch of xbox one so far.

          • Matthew Bunton

            Ok thanks guys I wasn’t aware of that.

            Well even more reason for Microsoft to up their game then.

          • Hogwild333

            Yes, they are offering DriveClub (a limited version) and Resogun (full game) day one and they’ve detailed three smaller titles that will be coming one per month. Most of the titles are download only so they don’t have to worry about retailers getting upset. The Driveclub pre-order numbers have been low which I think is due to the PS+ offer.

          • Dylan

            Yes. It won’t be as prolific, since it’s so early. The *fantastic* “Don’t Starve” will be free in month 2.

            PS+ will hit its stride a year after launch, when sequels start to come out. And also giving PS3 games will likely be happening through gaikai.

          • usrev

            having played don’t starve, it’s a pretty decent game. it’s like getting a new $15 arcade game free. well worth the $4 a month subscription.

          • O Mosqueda

            Yeah, right. Sony is gonna become a charitable organization. Who cares for profit? Let’s invest millions and give the resulting product for free. Yeah, right.

        • O Mosqueda

          Good luck with that. I want O*ama to be impeached for Prism and his attempt to invade Syria unilaterally but that’s not gonna happen either.

      • usrev

        drive club for psn+ is actually most of the game… it’s nothing like killer instinct.

        Drive club for psn+ is the full game minus some tracks and cars.

        also worth noting we already have a list of confirmed free titles for psn+ on ps4. don’t starve, resogun, secret ponchos, and outlast are all confirmed to be free before 2015 with at least 1 free psn+ game on ps4 per month.

        not to mention ps3 and ps vita will still be getting free titles.

    • DoGi

      Also after some time many of the games (and add-ons etc.) that you can consider “old”,need to have permanent price drops!
      It’s unthinkable for example to ask until now 15$ for Banjo Kazooie/Tooie XBLA game and also asking 15$ for a recently released top AAA XBLA game!
      The pricing needs to be more logic and reasonable!

      • BlinkFandango

        I’ve been saying this for months on Major’s blog, but nobody at MS is listening. The Xbox One is coming out, they need to just clean house on the Xbox 360 and drop prices like crazy to make them reasonable. Castle Crashers is still full price and that game is like 7 years old already.

        • usrev

          if a game is 3 years old, it should be $1. if it’s 2 years old. it should be 75% off. 1 year old 50% off less 6 months old 25% off.

          this should be how ALL arcade game are priced.

          everyone talks about the good arcade games but there were much more retail titles that, because they actually drop in price, are cheaper.

          castle crashers is the perfect example. it’s $15 still? far cry 3 a much newer and retail game is $20!

    • Bennijin

      They really don’t have a clue, sure some will say “they don’t have to give you anything” but it’s almost like they don’t.
      Why don’t they delve into the back catalogue from when the 360 actually had exclusives and give us some of those?

    • http://www.v0id.co.uk/ v0id

      Microsofts argument will be that you can cancel or not renew your gold subscription and still keep those free games. You can’t do the same if you cancel PS+

  • Pressure

    Still waiting for GTAV on demand..

    • MrHawkeye1996

      Why not buy it in shop? It’s cheaper?

      • Pressure

        I have $65 on my Live account and I’m in no rush to play the game.

        • MrHawkeye1996

          Ah cool

    • Matthew Bunton

      I don’t think that it will go to on demand games as it’s a 2 disc game and needs to have each disc read at the same time. For example you install disc 2 and play disc one in the drive this enables the console to stream data from the HDD and OD at the same time.

      I hope this helps you if not let me know and i’ll try to explain further or better.

      • Pressure

        Many multi-disk games are available on Xbox Live. Take L.A. Noire for example. Streaming data from two sources is entirely unnecessary for the game to run.

        • Matthew Bunton

          Not according to Rockstar.

        • Generik420

          My understanding is GTAV stores information different than other games that are multi-disk requiring access to content from disk 1 and 2 simultaneously.. which results in the problems of texture popping if both sources are installed on HDD. The GTAV manual specifically states to only install disk 1.

          • Matthew Bunton

            Yes you explained it far better than I did.

        • usrev

          you install disk 1 and it streams data from the HDD.
          you play disk 2 and it streams data from the disk drive.

          if you install disk 2 the game doesn’t work well because it cannot stream data from the disk drive and is bottlenecked by the HDD.

          so GoD version would again be bottle necked by the HDD. it CAN run but it’s such an inferior quality i doubt they will do it.

      • Bush O Connor

        both mine stream off the hdd, the disc is only used to scan the security sector to verify that its a legit copy.

        • Matthew Bunton

          Yes you can install both discs to the HDD but it will affect performance, you would be better off installing 1 disc to the HDD and the other to a USB stick. This will enable streaming from two devices.

          Without there is more pop ups and texture loading etc.

          • Bush O Connor

            ah right, i noticed the pop up and textures being slow to load i would compare it to the pc version of GTA4. the pop up only seemed to happen after 3 or more hours of solid gaming. i put it down to heat.

            will try the usb stick so, thanks for the info.

          • Generik420

            They actually recommend in the manual to only install disk 1 due to this. My understanding is it tries to read from 2 places on the hard disk at the same time causing the slow down and texture popping. I’d be curious to hear from others that have installed disk 2 to a flash drive if they get better performance (and I mean truly noticeable) than reading directly from the DVD. I’ve really noticed no slow down running disk 2 from the optical drive.

          • Matthew Bunton

            You are correct running the play disc from the USB or the OD is the same performance wise as both stream along with the HDD well.

            The only advantage of using a USB stick instead of the disc is that it removes the need for the disc to constantly spin except on start up. Which for me reduces noise.

          • Bush O Connor

            oh the noise of the disc spinning it sounds like someone drilling holes in the wall next door :) i cant play the 360 without the games on the hdd

          • Matthew Bunton

            I’m the same especially as I tend to game at night when the family is asleep. It sounds even noisier at night. So HDD installs all the way for me.

    • YouAreLyingBro

      How about on games with gold? Cause that would be awesome.

      • Pressure

        But entirely unrealistic. That will never happen.

  • MrHawkeye1996

    Awesome stuff dude!

  • Pooty Booty

    wow, Retro City is gonna be on sale for a loooong time lol

  • xPutNameHerex

    Not mentioned specifically, but part of that “2K Ad-hoc Sale” open to all XBL members is Bioshock Infinite for $20. I’m thinking that’s a very good price for a game my friends keep telling me to play, might have to bite at that!

    • Hogwild333

      Why don’t they break out these sorts of details? Thanks for the heads-up!

    • Bennijin

      £25 in the UK wtf.

  • MrHawkeye1996

    Might & Magic Clash of Heroes? Well… it’s free… so i can’t complain…

  • Kokuyama

    still can’t pay for games using MS account on xbox site. Is it going to be fixed?

    • Nick Peck

      I know, I’m still annoyed they haven’t done anything about this yet. Or the ability to use my MS wallet on the MS site (not just the Xbox one)…. I think the hamster fell asleep at the wheel over there.

  • MrHawkeye1996

    You seem to be giving away a lot of “Old” arcade games. Any chance you can give away “Gotham city impostors”? I need some fresh meat to kill.

    • m1nh0ca

      An online only game?
      Not even for free.

    • Hogwild333

      It is smart to give online-only games away because it reinvigorates the user base. Sony has done that with a number of free PS+ games like Awesomenauts, Gotham City Imposters and Guardians of Middle Earth. I hope we see Microsoft copy the same approach.

    • usrev

      heh psn+ gave that game for free like a year ago.

  • Andy Maguire

    XCOM:EU $20 in the US and a big fat £25 in the UK . What gives ?

    • http://www.v0id.co.uk/ v0id

      VAT or something added most likely

      • Bennijin

        Not even that. VAT is 20%. $20 is about £12.50 which after VAT is £15.

        Tesco have been selling Enemy Unknown for £10 recently anyway, although you may want to wait for Enemy Within by this point.

  • Dennis Crosby

    Still no GTA V and no one from Microsoft or Rockstar will update us on it this is B.S

    • Bush O Connor

      maybe sony have the timed exclusive rights for the digital version. ps3 members were able to preload it 3 days before release.

      • Dennis Crosby

        I just think that Microsoft isn’t trying to prove to us that there ready for this digital future.all of those game on demand games should not have release date and should be in the marketplace and for them not to have the one game every is asking for makes me have doubts about them

        • Nick Peck

          Diablo 3 is on GoD oct 4th, so I bet GTAv will be the week after or so. It’s usually a few weeks after release or so. Can’t wait for day one stuff on XBO as I hate waiting since I prefer DD’s.

    • Fleshfeast

      I can’t believe I thought GTA V might actually be available through GonD during release week. I’m glad I went ahead and bought the game on disc.

  • xbox_gamer

    Lol psn plus gets Rayman origins and Xbox nothing. ac2 and fable 3 was only good free games. People that say oh well its free. So what It sucks. Magic the gathering sucks and lags as does the poker. The rest all suck or are old as heck

    • Nick Peck

      Shows how good you can read, Rayman is only for the Vita :p

      • Bennijin

        What’s a Vita?

        • xbox_gamer

          Either way compare playstation plus games to xbox gold games. plus use to suck so maybe there’s hope for gold games if they continue it

          • xbox_gamer

            here’s still almost a week to go before October, and a few hours before the full PlayStation Store update, but you’re now able to download the new Instant Game Collection content on the store – we’ve included links to each of them below.

            The big game for this month is Far Cry 3, but there are four other games hitting the service, including Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen which are all on PS3.

            Yea not just vita rayman but Far cry 3 for free and Xbox get’s what ? wow

  • Corellianrogue

    No Kinect Central deals? :( (Note the lack of “Micro$oft and Xbox suck for not giving me all the free games I want!!!!!!!” Lol!)

    • Chris Hofer

      Dragon’s Lair utilizes Kinect.

      • Corellianrogue

        I know, but that’s next week plus they usually have a specific Kinect games sale each week called Kinect Central, for some reason they haven’t got it these 2 weeks. :/ Then again I’ve got most of the games anyway, lol! (Such as Drahon’s Lair.)

  • abeeest

    One week of discounted BF3 cr#p then Might and Magic for free. Way to screw yourself and your customers M$. I will be picking up TT’s assault though .

  • m1nh0ca

    Might & Magic Clash of Heroes is a good game… I only ask, please, let everybody download it.

    The other deals are “meh”.

    • martin_m95

      yeah and fix vegas already it wont be free soon

  • Chris Hofer

    Good grief. Here we go again. More repeat sales that we’ve all seen before. I’d be much happier with some sales on XBLA games, sales on Dead Space DLC, etc. There just doesn’t seem to be any originality any more. I’d like to see a bit more variety than some of these that seem to show up again and again.

    • m1nh0ca

      I’m all the time up for XBLA games…
      DLC I’ll never buy, anyway.

  • evilfangs .

    Might & Magic Clash of Heroes is our next free game?

    • Jorge Garza

      Incredible, but yes…

      • evilfangs .

        Like all free games, I’ll try it before I bash it.

        Only Might and Magic games I’ve played are Might and Magic 6: Mandate of Heaven and Might and Magic 7: Blood and Honor on the PC in 1999.

        • Hogwild333

          I’ve played the demo and it has potential. At least it isn’t a game that I have zero interest in like most of the past offerings.

  • Jorge Garza

    I´m starting to feel ashamed of being with Xbox, with all those trolls
    that actually are right when they say PS+ is waaay better than this BS.
    I love my console, I have many games for it and I have been with Xbox
    since 2005, but this makes me feel like they are abusing me as a
    customer and I hate bullies.

    • Bush O Connor

      of course its better, i only power up the ps3 lately to grab my free games before they pass. i havent bothered with any of the free xbox games.they’re games i already finished and traded years ago.

    • Nick Peck

      You are being abused by not getting free games YOU want? Man some of you people make me laugh. Personally I could care less about any free games, come nov I’ll never touch my 360 again. I’m not even expecting much anyways, though what they have released so far, even if they were older games, was fine with me since I never played any of them.

      They can’t make everyone happy, not to mention their focus right now is launching a new system and securing games for it. Once that is out of the way I’m sure you will see some better sales and the like.

      • Jorge Garza

        This is not about “It´s free, don´t complain”. I am not complaining about the free game, I´m complaining about the service compare to a better cheaper service.

        Bad thing with this BS is that they will say it´s a “promotion” and they didn´t have it before. Well, they HAVE to fight with competition, and if PS+ is waaaay better and even cheaper, people is going to switch consoles.

        I think my loyalty and my money give me the right to complain, yes, I pay my gold because of online gaming and I know this “promotion” was not here, BUT that does not mean I don´t feel abused, especially when I can see the competition offers.

        You may say “go to Sony then” and I will anwer: I don´t feel like dropping my 100 people friendlist, 85,000 gamerscore and maaaany digital games bought just because of this, but maybe I will be with Sony next gen.

        • Generik420

          So wait.. you feel like you are being abused because XBL is running a promotion discounting games and add-on packs? Ask the 77 million PS Network subscribers affected by the security breach a few years back if they feel abused. You’re paying a bit more for a service that has been very secure compared to Sony’s and still offers free games and discounts on content. If you want to make a statement, make it with your wallet and take your business elsewhere.. Nobody cares about your 85,000 gamerscore or your apparent sense of entitlement regarding a service that many millions of people are happily paying for and enjoying every single day.

          • Bush O Connor

            that breach was the best thing to happen to sony, it happened to me but i dont use my credit card for anything outside of paypal. prepay cards all the way.

            im happy with the results over on the playstation side of things since then.

          • Jorge Garza

            Are you kidding me? Meh.

            I KNOW nobody cares about MY gamerscore but I do care, and I know it´s useless but I put too much work on it. For ME it´s important, I speak for myself.

            I don´t deny a lot of people is happy with Xbox Live Gold service, including me BUT as I said, I´m STARTING to feel ashamed and unhappy with the service.

            Maybe I will vote with my wallet with next gen consoles, as I said.

      • Guest

        ..fanboy strikes again.

      • Ivanx360xpira

        I don´t know man…I considered myself a Xbox Fan…but I have to agree with the guy above you, not just for the games they put for free, but mostly is that some of these “free” games are region locked…I still can´t download Raibow Six just like Fable III (and guess what I pay gold for years). They should change the name to Free “sometimes” with Gold…For Christ sake, just remove the lock while the damn game is free…then lock it again…it´s not that hard…

      • usrev

        you are one of those people that will follow MS through anything, a fanboy, a useless person that lets bad practices thrive.

        • Nick Peck

          Not at all, I’m just a logical person where others like yourself love to blame everything or anyone else for something you don’t like. If you are so wronged, sell off everything and buy something else. NO ONE twists your arm to buy anything.

          If it is a bad practice, then walk away. Not every service is exactly the same, each have their merits, simply pick they one you like more instead of coming onto a site for the “other guy” and complain about it. You current gen kiddos are so annoying and cry about everything, then, when you feel wronged, you need free stuff for compensation… grow up.

    • xPutNameHerex

      Yes PS+ is better than XBL Gold for free games. However, XBL has better general online services and patching. Playstation has better exclusives than Xbox. However, Xbox has a better controller than Playstation.

      The above section is all technically opinions, and can be switched between the two companies depending on a person’s opinion. That is not the point.

      The point is that both consoles offer pros and cons compared to the competition. There’s no reason to feel ashamed for being with Xbox just because of PS+ and Games with Gold comparisons. Those are just but one aspect of a large number of factors in both consoles ecosystems. Just take a look at both consoles, ignore the fanboy opinions, and go with whatever console suits your needs.

      If you start making purchases or feeling ashamed based on one aspect of a console or any device instead of a whole picture deal, you will never be happy with your purchases.

      • Lloytron

        You are right. However if you remember when Games For Gold was announced, they mentioned ACII and Halo 3. The inference from that, which we now know is not true, is that this was to compete in some way with PS+. This clearly falls miles short of that.

      • Dylan

        Well the decision is made easier by the much improved controller and likely much improved online service on the Playstation side.

      • usrev

        having both systems the online service of sony isn’t that bad anymore. it’s worse than xbox but it’s not a huge difference.

  • Martin Fortune

    So a couple of weeks before Xcom: Enemy Within is released
    which I just found out includes the elite soldier and slingshot packs, you
    decide to put these items on sale, I was going to buy them then I did some
    research and found out that they come with the new game. Well I was nearly
    fooled.

  • http://twitter.com/rogXue rogXue

    So Retro City Rampage will be back to the price MS mistakenly put it up for at release before they increased it to $15? What a sale.

    • Bennijin

      Apparently the 800MSP price was an early bird sale like what Super Meat Boy did, they just forgot to tell anyone.

      The funny thing is it’s not even worth that.

  • Maritox

    and kinect central?

    • Maritox

      oh wait dragon s lair

  • Hugoku

    M&M:Clash of Heroes is an amazing game.
    However, it is not what everybody had in mind with the Games with Gold promotion.
    When you say something like ACII and Halo 3 for free during E3, then come up with Defense Grid (a great game too), Magic (not so great) and then another Arcade game, it kinda burns people.

  • roozbeh, again

    This has been a heck of a week for me. First I bought borderlands 2 dlc’s full price just yesterday and now another arcade game?

    halo 3 better be the next free game, cause I have had it. The BS stops here.

    • DarthBurrito

      Wow, really? You’re complaining about free games. That’s sad.

      • martin_m95

        look at the games sony is giving away and compare them to what moneysoft are giving away

        • DarthBurrito

          If you like what Sony is offering, then get a PlayStation, otherwise be happy with what you’re given.

          • martin_m95

            I cant affort it and no I have the right to complain

          • DarthBurrito

            Let me get this right, you have the right to complain for something that’s free? That sounds more like bitching like a 5 year old.

          • martin_m95

            you wouldnt understand

          • AC130

            You are right he wouldn’t though these kind of people are everywhere. Hurrr durr! You haz no opinion but my opinion you must be 5 you do not hav my opinion.

          • DarthBurrito

            I don’t want your kind of understanding. If someone gave me something free and it wasn’t the best item, I would still be grateful that something was given to me. That’s called ‘appreciation.” But hey, if you think Sony has a better deal with the monthly games they “lease” because of the Plus service, then switch services, you do have that option. But remember, the game that XB gives every month are yours to keep, even if you let your Live sub expire. The games from the Plus service, they expire when your sub expires.

          • Dylan

            Someone made this great comparison about G4G a while ago.

            You’re a regular customer at a restaurant, you tip the same amount to the waiter the same amount for every visit, and really support the restaurant. Then the owner comes out and proclaims “We very much appreciate your loyalty! I want to give you something special as a gift for such loyalty!”
            And he goes to the freezer and gives you a stale piece of bread.

            That’s games for gold. Don’t think you’d be so appreciative.

          • AC130

            What he/she said

  • roozbeh, again

    Wasn’t hand of kul free for summer of arcade?

    • Michael Burden

      No, the promotion gave you a souls pack which is the in-game currency for armor and weapons. The game itself is free to all Gold members.

  • martin_m95

    wtf is night and magic
    better not be another one of these childish rpgs like final fantasy
    also F*CKING FIX VEGAS ALREADY

    • roozbeh, again

      I feel for you bro. I went to the USA for like 10 days. Got all my large downloads done there.

      See, the United states of America is useful for something at last.( it is a joke people, don’t bash me)

      • martin_m95

        im watching an y*tu*be gameplay of nigth and magic and all i can say is WHY THE F*CK AM I EVEN WATCHING THIS

        • roozbeh, again

          Hey, its a great game. But triple AAA games are needed badly right now

          • martin_m95

            by the looks of it i dont like it at all
            and i tought you said this month was gonna be killer
            by the looks of it its even worse than magic 2013
            idk im gonna try the demo but i doubt ill like it

          • roozbeh, again

            i said it better be killer, anyway i’m still hoping the second game blows us away.

            Enough BS MS, give us the good stuff

          • martin_m95

            ms employee: dun woriee roozbeh ai guarantie da sekond gaem lil blou u alei to ps4

  • Death Dealer

    There’s more deals that aren’t mentioned here. Just check xbldb com
    BioShock Infinite is 50% off too for example.

    • Michael Burden

      That falls under the 2K Ad Hoc sale mentioned in the post.

  • martin_m95

    at least give us mortal combat as 15-30 october gwg game

  • Jason Lafitte

    might and magic is awesome, one of the best xbox live games, too bad I already own it, maybe you should implement a “save 10 bucks off the item of your choice” instead

  • http://www.animecourtyard.com Mario

    Another arcade game, seriously MS? come on, give your loyal gold members some respect.

    • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

      All offered retail titles can be scored cheap so far. Not so for XBLA titles. I’ll take one of those any day.

      • http://www.animecourtyard.com Mario

        is not about giving people retail games available for cheap, we speak of quality here. Giving an Arcade game over a AAA is far from that.

        • martin_m95

          not to mention that that arcade game looks crappy

          • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

            You mean the XBLA game with an 85 rating on Metacritic?

          • AC130

            That was 600 MSP in March 2013?

          • Bennijin

            And has already been on sale over 9000 times. I’m sure anyone who wants it has it.

          • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

            And hasn’t been on sale since because unlike retail, most digital prices don’t stay down?

          • AC130

            Ooh goody saving them 10 bucks then

        • http://www.doblu.com/ Matt Paprocki

          Some of the best games this entire generation come from XBLA. Just because they’re on a download service doesn’t change their quality. It’s a superficial label.

          • usrev

            it’s not a quality problem it’s a price problem. I’ve found decent full retail games for less than most arcade games. I picked up batman arkam city a few months after it came out for $10 yet a $15 arcade game will be $15 4 years from now.

  • Kazaam

    SRY, nothing worthy to buy. And realy Hydrophobia, again!? Diseapointing. I wait for Mark of the Ninja 50% off…

  • martin_m95

    ascent hand of kul looks nice though
    it looks just like god of war

  • Pasajero82

    Worst than ever!

    • NadoHawk6

      Worse than avatar sales for Gold Deal of the Week? I think not.

  • Jason Lafitte

    and next month will be……wait for it……….wait for it.
    Grand Theft Auto 4 DLC at 50% off, and the free game will be NHL 07

    • martin_m95

      free game next month is night and magic clash of the wathever

      • Jason Lafitte

        who am i kidding, EA would never give anything away for free. They are worse then Microsoft.

        • AC130

          You get free server shutdowns do not complain too much as they tend to give you a nasty rash of discontinued features.

    • GmailIsDown

      this program will continue until December 31st, which means we have yet to see 5 titles. let them be BLOPS2, Halo 3, Halo 4, Gears of War 3, Forza Motorsports 4, and then i’ll be happy.

      • AC130

        2 Disc version FM4 and then I will be happy not that BS they pulled with Essentials edition FM4. And I thought they said it would continue on past that point?

        • GmailIsDown

          i think Major said back in June or July that this program *may* continue beyond this year but i haven’t heard anything since. would be nice if this could continue to Xbox One. PS+ game offerings will continue to PS4, and an “essentials version” of DriveClub will be a free rental for PS+ users.

  • Rafik Bouchaala

    hahahaha MS is becoming a joke!

    • martin_m95

      TOTALY AGREE

    • NadoHawk6

      The joke is thinking they care what you want.

    • AC130

      I would say no one is laughing but…

  • Lloytron

    So you announce Might and Magic as the free game, the week after Sony announced Far Cry 3 for PS+?

    That finger is firmly off the pulse.

    • Jason Lafitte

      and i just saw an add for spend 50$ at the PS store and get 10$ back.

      • martin_m95

        omg why dont I have a ps3 right now. I would love these benefits expecially farcry 3 that game is PLAIN AWESOME

      • GmailIsDown

        yes they did it last year as well. this is just a way to lure people into buying day 1 digital titles.

        i’ll get BEYOND on this one.

    • Jason Lafitte

      wow they even get xcom, saints row 3, uncharted 3, resident evil.
      playstation 3 250gb is 199 at costco in canada this week, comes with little big planet, is that a good deal?

      • Jason Lafitte

        329$ at costco, not on sale.

        Accessories Included with the PlayStation®3 250 GB Console:
        2 black DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controllers
        Two USB cables
        HDMI cable
        Blu-ray remote
        UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception™ Game of the Year Edition game – Rated: “T” (13 years and older)
        Playstation Plus 1-year membership

      • Lloytron

        I bought a PS3 recently purely for PS+.

        The online side is pretty bad but the value for money is spectacular.

      • usrev

        at $200 it isn’t bad.

        there is a GTA 5 bundle with a 500gb hard drive for $270 in the US idk if it is elsewhere. but gta 5+ 500gb hard drive + PS3 for $270 is a steal.

  • Ryan Davis

    Still waiting for a BK sale, or better yet price drop. MS, you seriously need to understand that price for older games and DLC needs to come down with time. Why is the Bioshock 2 DLC still $5-10 at regular price when I can get both Bioshock 1 & 2 for $5 at Amazon right now? Even at 50% off, that DLC is a ripoff.

  • Dennis Crosby

    So from from the logic of this post GTAV should be out Friday if FiFA comes out today and on demand next Friday but everyone need to chill out about these free games it a new program when Sony started up they gave out old games as while it takes time to get these types of program XB1 deals we be better

  • Ryan

    again and again this is fail marketplace ever I’ve seen ,so if you want buy X1 you have to give more or just like PS3 ,and Gta 5 isn’t there omg from this company !!

  • Metalization

    I haven’t been downloading many of these game with gold because they aren’t worth the space on my hard drive.

  • Metalization

    These Games With Gold suck. No other way to put it. You are giving us games no one wants or cares about. Even if when they are free, they cost too much.

    • martin_m95

      AGREE

  • rhooper

    Major, could you, please, tell us who’s responsible for the Games with Gold?

    I promise I won’t kidnap and torture him / her, I just want to talk about marketing and customer care, which is my expertise.

    • martin_m95

      yep sweet sweet talk
      *prepares the electric chair*

  • Metalization

    For a company that supposed to be trying to compete, they are doing a terrible job.

  • Godfrey Chitroll107

    NBA 2k14 Spanish Commentary Pack 5$ ???? THIS IS A FUKING JOKE, RIGHT????

    • Jared

      You get it for free at EB Games When you Pre Order

  • Jared

      • Dylan

        http://us playstation com/psn/playstation-plus/

        • martin_m95

          thanks

    • NadoHawk6

      Sony has one of the worst sites around for their online services.

      • AC130

        It took me a while to see what he was laughing at. I guess Far Cry 3 is involved here.

  • Hotaru Tomoe

    Where is Phantom Breaker Extra?? Been waiting for the regular Phantom Breaker for a couple of freaking years now, then I read here its out today.. and nothing?

  • Hotaru Tomoe

    Phantom Breaker Extend? Why is it not showing up?

  • Marcus W.

    Seriously? Might & Magic Clash of Heroes? I remember when defense grid was up, and people pretty much hated MS for it. And you(Nelson) saying that you would talk to the GwG guys about pretty much everybody hating the Defense Grid selection into GwG, and M&M Clash of Heroes is a million times worse. I’d rather get good arcade games instead of defense grid, magic 2013 and M&M whatever.

    • GmailIsDown

      have you ever played this game? this is actually a good game.
      looking back, the games they are giving away for free are actually all good games. the problem is they are mostly old and people want more because PS+ provides far more newer AAA titles, even though their games are not really free.

      • Marcus W.

        So I have.(And IMO Defense Grid is better, but Defense Grid is still meh) And I don’t really give a flying s*t about PS+, I just want classic xbox 360 games(Like DR2, R6V, Crackdown, etc.)… As promised.

      • martin_m95

        i tried it and it was horrible

    • martin_m95

      TOTALY AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID

  • Metalization

    If you want people to stop making fun of Microsoft and the Xbox then you need to stop making stupid decisions. Games with Gold is a good idea, but the games are just insulting. Honestly, I’m not going to waste my time or hard drive space with games Might and Magic, Magic the Gathering or other outdated titles.
