  • Death Dealer

    Have both of them already. Couldn’t you at least have come up with some better titles for the festive season (Iron Brigade is OK, but we want bigger GoD games too)? What’s it going to be for December? A lump of coal? Seriously, I hope you close the year with a bang, because it’s just not getting any better yet…
    Could we get a special free game for Christmas? Even if only for a day?

    • Roberto Merino

      I hope they hear you, i am desperately hoping for Viva piñata or nuts and bolts.

  • EDfromRED

    It’s insulting pitiful ” deals” like this that prompted me to trade in my 360 and games for a PS4 pre-order. Now with the ludicrous revelation that the XBONE can’t even handle Ghosts at 1080p!! And it’s $100 more!!
    Goodbye Microsoft, maybe Next-next gen you’ll get your act together.

    • evilfangs .

      Curse of the third consoles is real!

    • martin_m95

      nah i dont believe moneysoft will ever get their sh*t together

  • Lloytron

    BTW if anyone doesn’t get why this is a failiure compared to PS+. When PS+ announce next months titles, I get loads of comments form my friends telling me the good news.

    Nobody will ping me about this.

    • Lloytron

      Wow I got down voted for pointing out the fact that my friends won’t sing praises over this announcement?! LOL

  • Dados92

    Add Alan Wake!!

  • martin_m95

    i feel so ashamed to be an owner of a 360

    • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

      I’m starting to feel that way too…

  • MrRadiolips
    • Death Dealer

      Yeah, because Steam understands the concept that we live in a recession and customers want good value.

      • MrRadiolips

        Yeah i saw Max Payne 3 for $9.99 on Steam and its $39.99 on xbox live. Cant wait for SteamOS.

        • Death Dealer

          To be fair, it was available for very cheap on XBL GoD a few weeks ago ;).

          • Some guy

            Yea, it was a great opportunity to get a bunch of “This content is not available in your region”

          • Death Dealer

            Yeah, I’m still getting that in my own country too. Weird thing is, I can get every other free item without any problems, just the Games on Demand are giving those errors.
            Had the funniest thing with Castlevania the other day too. Couldn’t buy it full from the marketplace, but in-game it proceded with the purchase. Some serious sh*t going on…

          • Some guy

            I can’t re-download games I bought before because of that, even my download history can’t help

          • Bennijin

            Which is how it should have stayed. It’s been £5 in Tesco for MONTHS.

  • Bk

    These games they are giving away are suppose to be fan favorites. I wanna know what “fans” they are tracking. These are games for kids not Gamers.

  • rkm80

    Welp…

  • http://raptr.com/unscleric/about UNSCleric

    Very, very underwhelming. I didn’t have time for more games anyway.

  • KesMonkey

    I believe that complaining about free stuff makes one look like an idiot, so I’ll simply say: Thanks, but no thanks, Microsoft. The space on my HDD is far too precious.

    • Bk

      Should we not complain. I don’t know about you but I spend a lot of money on Microsoft. Their way of showing appreciation is giving us games we can get in the bargain bin at Gamestop for $1

    • martin_m95

      theyre not actually free you have to have bought gold to get them and by comparing them with the games sony give away to their fans i cannot see how somebody can ressist from complaining

    • evilfangs .

      If no one complained you would be buying an always online DRM always connected Kinect X1 on the 22nd. So you’re welcome.

      • Axl Jay

        CRITICAL HIT!

        • martin_m95

          you forgot FATALITY

          • Axl Jay

            AHAHAH…sorry, I’m not a mortal kombat fan…I use to play “RPGs”, that’s why I used the critical hit thing…

          • martin_m95

            oh ok

        • Bennijin

          IT’S SUPER EFFECTIVE!

        • Dylan

          FLAWLESS VICTORY

    • KillerRamen

      It’s not free. You have to buy a Gold Membership to get it. Compared to the games I get with PS+, this is ridiculous.

      • boe2

        The flaw in that sentence is so painfully obvious, I’m not even going to go there.

        • Bk

          If only they new

      • EldritchWarlord

        You have to buy PS+ too, and keep buying if you want to keep playing.
        But really, are these two games “ridiculous” compared to PS+ games? In Oct. in North America PS+ added Kingdoms of Amalur (good game, same review score as Iron Brigade), Shadow of the Colossus (great game, but relatively ancient), Poker Night 2 (decent game, review scores about 10% lower than A World of Keflings), and Hotline Miami (good game, reviews a about 5% higher than Iron Brigade).
        We can argue back and forth about the merits of either, but they are comparable. Sure, I might concede that IGC is better overall but then again I’m sure most people here were still paying for XBL Gold while IGC existed and GwG did not.

      • Tracy Babb

        Do any of you understand the concept of a sunk cost? If you had already purchased a year of xbox live and didn’t buy the subscription with the knowledge of the games with gold program then yes, they are free. People bought xbox live knowing what they were getting, then microsoft starts a games with gold program to give people more than they were already getting and people complain. I understand being upset if you just purchased xbox live, but let’s be realistic most people on here had already purchased it before the games with gold program started. If you already spent your money on xbox live and then you get extra games then yes they are free.

    • Bennijin

      If you “purchase” a game when it’s free it’ll remain in your download history so you still own it, so you can download it at a later date. Or not.

  • Mark Capell-helm

    i will download keflings just because but forget iron brigade and when my gold runs out thats it done with no more unless its good quality GwG coz so far it is just a joke

    • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

      Pretty much the only reason I’ll download them is for the fact that they are free.

  • Chupon

    Some of you a really bitter. Iron Brigade is a great game and Keflings is fun. I own them both already, but thanks.

    • martin_m95

      iron brigade doesnt look that bad but its still a cheap @ss short arcade game that isnt worth more than 6 dollars and world of keflings looks like its made for 3 yr olds

      • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

        Agreed…..personally I think most Arcade games are barely worth .99 anyway.(But not all of them)

    • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

      Played Keflings….boring game unless you’re a kid, and Iron Brigade is ok but short and a little boring as well.

  • Bk

    I sit here and read where Microsoft gives Xbox Ones, all day one games, year memberships, away daily to high profile people among others. Now for the people who made Xbox live great aka every gold member. A combined total of $10 worth of free games for the past couple of months. I have a huge problem with this.

    • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

      I’ve entered as many contests as were available here in Canada and I’ve never won anything and probably never will. The free stuff like that will never go to people like us.

      • Bk

        What Microsoft is calling free like these games. Are garbage and should be free just on principle

        • John Titus

          It’s a clear message of how much they value their customers.

          • Bk

            Couldn’t agree more

  • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

    I wish that after a post like this that so many people are talking about and upset with that MS would at least have someone explain the reasoning behind why the dissappointing games lately. I know there are a lot of great titles coming out over the next month and the Xboxone but come on….You get a lot from us as fans and users of LIVE and really don’t give a whole lot back sometimes……..I’ve earned my share of rewards and free stuff but it’s really been disappointing lately…..I love my Xbox360 and always have regardless of the issues over the years. But it’s getting hard to defend MS to my friends who keep telling me to buy a WII U or a PS4 by telling them nah I’m sticking with MS, they’ll have something cool next month! And then nothin…. :(
    Come on someone from MS let us know why some of these decisions are made and how do you plan to make it up to us? (and I know it’s not Larry’s fault either, he’s just unfortunately the messenger.)

    • Death Dealer

      I’d like to know who’s responsible too as I don’t think it’s Major Nelson making all the bad decisions and he’s getting all the flak.

      • Roberto Merino

        It is not him, but we would like to know who he is to send him a virtual slap in the face.

    • Bk

      Our hard earned money goes to Xbox One hand outs to celebs and other people who can afford Xbox Ones without even denting their wallets. So Microsoft can say they own one.

      • Lloytron

        To be fair, I’m getting a free one and I’m not famous at all!

        • Bk

          Gamestop Manager I take it

        • Roberto Merino

          +1, you don’t need to be famous, just knowing the right people.

          • Bk

            I am happy you know the right kind of people. Just because it is that way doesn’t make it right.

        • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

          You are now LOL

  • KillerRamen

    *facepalm* What happened to you Xbox? You used to be so awesome.

  • Disturbed_Court_Jester

    Paying for gold to get benefits like these aren’t going to keep me as a customer when your competitor is offering better stuff for a lower monthly price, who in their right mind would? And as far as i know nothing has been mentioned of this GWG promotion being carried over to the XB1 but on the other hand, Sony will continue to hand out games for PS+ subscribers on the PS4. And why must i have to be paying for Xbox live in order to use App’s that I all ready pay a subscription for? Shouldn’t buying the device be good enough? most other devices seem to think so.

    • John Titus

      You can talk about this until your blue in the face. MS is not listening or at least not planning on changing keeping most features behind a pay wall with a token Silver membership that does basically nothing.

  • Jason Lafitte

    hey Major in December can we have Spartacus Legends and World Series of Poker: Full House Pro for free.

    • CMETRIQ

      That Doritos game would also be awesome!

      • Jason Lafitte

        or Hexic HD!

    • martin_m95

      irony

    • makegoldbetter42

      I’d prefer Vampire Rain and Golden Axe Beast Rider…..oh wait, i may have just given them some bad ideas

      • Bennijin

        They should pay US to play those!

    • Dylan

      Don’t forget Aegis Wing!

      • John Titus

        And the Burger King games.

        • http://www.filmdump.com/ Anthony Smith

          I would actually like the Burger King games because they never released them in the UK. Well, Maybe just the one where you hide in bins, cos that’s a favourite past time of mine IRL.

      • Bk

        I think that is still free haha

      • Fingleberries

        What about Yaris? I’m pretty sure that would be well received? :)

    • Bk

      The state farm music thing they had. Where you had to match sounds. Didn’t everyone hear. That’s standalone now and Dec. 1 free game

  • Maximum Gamer

    This can’r be true,not again ‘-’

  • boe2

    These games are turds by the way. I don’t understand that they come with this while the spotlight’s on them :/

  • http://www.v0id.co.uk/ v0id

    I think I’ve figured out Microsft’s plan with GWG. Release crappy arcade titles so everyone loses interest and then scrap it “because no one was using it”

    • DeathBy SnuSnu

      I think they want us all to move to the PS+ network on our shiny new PS4′s. At least that’s what I’m doing.

  • Rammstone

    hahahahahahahahahahaha is this a joke?

  • m1nh0ca

    Xbox used to be that pretty hot girl we felt in love with.
    After some years together, she became a stinky, fat, grumpy lady, trying to tell you to get another woman, because she will offer more… and will keep being attractive, at least while you keep giving her presents and going out for dinners.

    • Bk

      You mean the girl that took my virginity. Then gave me a ring and never heard from her again.

    • Bennijin

      But now they’re just a company we used to know.

  • Byyys

    I’ll pass on the FREE arcade games, give the paying gold members something worth downloading!.. did you really think posting this would get positive comments?
    This just proves my point, how Microsoft are such a greedy company. all about profit, don’t care whatsoever on loyal customers who have being with Xbox live for years!

    • John Titus

      They do often give less while trying to sell it as more. I agree
      these games are old and one of them was already given away years ago. I
      don’t want these games even for free but to each their own.

      • Bk

        Really its just disappointing

    • Bennijin

      Okay I get the being annoyed thing, I really do, but passing on them? Download them anyway if you don’t own them. The promotion might be awful but these two offerings are actually themselves good games despite being pitiful GWG offerings, and free games are free games.

      Unless you already own them, like I do. Grr.

  • Maxcer Maxcer

    i wonder what we get next month, Undertow and Ninety Nine Nights?

    • Bk

      Nope it gonna be tetris and avatar paintball
      Dont give them that much credit

    • Lloytron

      Doubt it, Ninety Nine Nights is actually quite good!

  • Jedi Dna

    This can’t be used as an excuse!
    MS has plenty of great first party games on GoD!

    • Bennijin

      And PS+ doesn’t seem to have a problem.

      • Jedi Dna

        PS+ don’t have a problem?
        So what are you doing here? Go enjoy your “great” psn!
        This is no place for PS fanboys!

        • Bennijin

          What about jaded Xbox fans who want their service to be better yet endure continued disappointment?
          I don’t have PSN+, but every month I think about it a little more when Microsoft continues to serve up dregs.

          I was agreeing with your point about it not being used as an excuse. What I meant is PSN doesn’t seem to have a problem putting games out for free, so why should Microsoft? Thought that was obvious.

          • Jedi Dna

            If thats is the case then I owe you an apology.
            Just tired of Ps fanboys messing around here…
            Sorry

          • Bennijin

            This blog’s had plenty of idiots from both sides on here.
            It’s not fanboyism to point out the other service is offering their customers more, neither is it entitlement to demand better treatment from a company whose brand you have invested quite a lot of time and money in.

          • Jedi Dna

            When you are asking for a better service for yourself, I fully agree with you.
            And I think we should do it every time it’s needed!
            I’ve mistaken you because the intention of most people that post here and “point” the other service is to brag and not to demand anything.

  • Ricardo Dawkins

    jajajajaja..que bien dicho.

  • Riddick Snipes

    This post is terrible, but not as bad as yesterdays news that ghosts is 720p on the one!

    • Byyys

      yesterdays news? aha! could of told you it was only 720p last week! A new xbox is going to cost 100 more than a new PlayStation. 720p is just not acceptable in the year 2013 for gaming!

  • Riddick Snipes

    Its confirmed to b in 720p. Wtf right?

  • Mr.Patches

    I just need to find out how to get one of them xbox live golf memberships,..and I’m good. Those darn keflings done put it over the top. And when I was just a boy, I had a Labrador named “Iron Brigade” or was it Butch?…I think ‘iron brigade,was actually my gran’s nick name back before the talkies…talk about yer irony.
    So sign me up Mr. Larry! What’s yer handicap anyway?

    • Bennijin

      720p.

  • Mike

    Microsoft has stated it’s up to the developers what the resolution is

    Thanks Microsoft, having a bad day, and I needed a good laugh!!

      Thanks Microsoft, modchip on the way.

  • VIphoneFan

    ok…i am looking to buy the xbox one but before i do i want to know if i can play cod:ghost with my clan that has the 360 version.

    • Death Dealer

      Unfortunately no. They don’t have cross-platform multiplayer, but the stats are shared between versions on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

      • VIphoneFan

        and you are 100% sure? i seen a trailer that mentioned cross platform play.

        • Bk

          And where did you read this.
          Cause they have said nothing about it

        • Death Dealer

          Cross platform clans: yes, cross platform multiplayer: no.
          I’m very sure, unless it somehow changed at the last minute and Xbox Live on the Xbox One got merged with the Xbox 360.

  • DeathBy SnuSnu

    Another round of free games I already own. Excellent. That PS4 pre-order is looking better by the day.

    • Bk

      Both consoles are sold out. So saying that really does nothing

    • WARLORD

      Yep i’m canceling my xbox one preorder and putting it towards my ps4 pre-order…

      • Bk

        What pre-order. It will be out before you can even get one. Go ahead cancel. Have fun play last gen

        • WARLORD

          I said “toward my ps4 pre-order”… I have had the ps4 and xbox one pre-orederd sins E3…… But nice try :O

        • Master Troll

          Walmart actually opened up ps4 preorders yesterday but they might be sold out already

    • baconcheeswhiz89

      hope you get the watch dogs ps4 bundle :D

      • WARLORD

        That would be funny if the daily wasn’t across the board……………..

      • Dylan

        Amazon sends them separately, gives you a launch edition console day 1, so it doesn’t matter.

        • baconcheeswhiz89

          bestbuy and target i know pulled peoples pre orders when watch dogs was delayed

          • Dylan

            Yeah that’s pretty lame. Target just opened up regular preorders, so those people had to re-preorder everything.

            Amazon is awesome though, they would never do that.

          • Master Troll

            So not true they ended up honoring the PS4 without game and gave all those customers a $100 gift card as a sincere apology FACT!

          • baconcheeswhiz89

            im lazy to look up but i know what iv’e read a couple days ago, so technically i wasn’t throwing out false info since IT REALLY DID HAPPEN. all in all i was just joking with the dude.

            good stuff master troll, good stuff

          • Master Troll

            I feel you that what not cool but they did make good a couple days later and gave them $100 gift card on top they actually benefited from the ordeal

          • Master Troll

            *target not best buy and bestbuy still honored the ps4 without game so you were spewing out false information

    • Roberto Merino

      Congratulations!, and which exclusive game are you going to play this year?, Knack?, Killzone? X’D

      Have Fun.

      • Master Troll

        Probably cod ghosts in 1080p or BF4 in 900p instead of either in 720p

        • Bennijin

          BOOM.

  • DeathBy SnuSnu

    Yup. One of the many reasons I’m moving to a PS4 in the next gen.

  • http://twitter.com/Piotr_Pastusiak Piotr Pastusiak

    Also nothing interesting

  • baconcheeswhiz89

    this program obviously wasn’t looked into throughly after don “the douchenozzle” mattrick left ya’ll….but in no way shape or form would you guys get positive feedback from these arcade games, people want full retail games. i still have faith in you xbox, i’m sure there are reasons on why you don’t compare to playstation.

  • John Titus

    I want to know about this as well. This is crucial to my purchase. I’m already delaying a PS4 purchase and I will do the same if MS doesn’t clarify ASAP before launch. If I am going to make this the center of my living room DLNA is a must. I am not going to replace my 360 with an XB1 if it has less features.

  • wightlight

    I personally like the Games With Gold program and I appreciate that the games are mine to keep forever. Unlike Playstation Plus which is a rental service. And just for some perspective, I pay less than $3 a month for a Gold membership. Are these games worth more than $1.50 each? Yes. And are the free games the only benefit of Gold? No.

    • Bk

      Until very few people download them and they discontinue cause its not popular.

      • Axl Jay

        don’t feed the troll

      • Bennijin

        Why would you not download something that’s free? I understand you may not be happy with the offerings being sparse (neither am I) but the games aren’t bad. It’s that we deserve more.

    • Arcona

      As a playstation plus member, the free games are much newer and better than crappy arcade games. I recently got MG Revengeance, NFS MW, and AC3 for free.. What do I get on Gold? Halo 3? A game I bought 6 years ago? and the whole rental thing. Well I never intend to let my PS+ run out, what with the awesome free games. I use it on my Vita too. so they are as good as mine. And most folks aren’t bothered once they have finished the game so I wouldn’t really care if they expired. But even if your account does run out. If you renew your subscription all the old games unlock again.

  • Bk

    Oh nice

  • Silent_Killer01

    Don’t judge the success of the program by the number of downloads. Check if anyone is playing them more then once.

  • Arcona

    Couple of arcade games? how about proper games? and not old ones everyone has like Halo 3. And any word on if there will be something like this on the X1? I’ve gotten loads of free games on my PS3 and Vita. many big hits less than a year old. When I get my PS4 there will be 2 games waiting for me! I want something decent on the X1. Could you at least try to compete with what PS+ offers?

    • baconcheeswhiz89

      i’m sure they’re trying, the thing is playstation was ahead of the game long before this program started.

      rainbow six vegas was a deal for $5, a month before they added it to the program, so obviously they didn’t have this planned ahead of time.

      • Arcona

        I just don’t get why they don’t get it going properly! Stick Halo 4 on there! If people think newer games like that are gonna pop up they will get Live just for that. Hell I got PS+ just for the free games. Didn’t care about the other bonuses. They are offering proper games that are less than a year old!

      • usrev

        trying? if a publisher will do it on playstation they will probably do it on xbox.

        go to square enix and say you want to put sleeping dogs on games with gold and work out a price.

        square has put sleeping dogs, just cause 2, and hitman absolution on PSN+ within about a 12month period. I think MS should be able to work out a decent deal with them.

        • baconcheeswhiz89

          i understand everyone’s frustration, i said it from the beginning when defense grid was the first game for the program…it was false advertising on xbox’s part. but the deals made up for that month tremendously, people may or may not agree with me.

          who knows, we’ll see what happens this month, it may break it or fix it…patience.

  • http://www.facebook.com/trekx trekx

    I love the Games with Gold program i look forward to it every month, and i really do appreciate the free games, but really ??? Is this a sign of where the program is going, Just low end arcade games ??? At least do one Arcade game and one 360 game so that we aren’t totally disappointed all month …

    • Tracy Babb

      I’m glad to see someone here who isn’t just whining and actually appreciates the program. I sorta feel the same way. People on here just act like they have a right to highly rated free games. They act like the fact that PS has a better program means xbox is required to have the same program. We all knew what we were signing up for when we bought our xbox, and now people act like the fact that MS is giving 2 free games every month is some great injustice.

      Basically, I understand what you’re saying. I really appreciate the program, and every month I”m checking back obsessively to see if it’s something that I would be interested in, and I’m just going to have to pass this month, which is a bummer, but they’re a business, they are in no way required to give me top tier games for free just because I say so.

        um, when the competition wipes the floor with you there is a problem. it isn’t whining at all.

        • martin_m95

          i know right

      • http://www.facebook.com/trekx trekx

        Exactly, you have to be grateful that they are giving us free games even though they may be games we dont exactly like. All in all its a great program and it is something that they dont really have to do so we should be thankful for that, but a little polite feed back on what we like and dont like dose go a long way with Microsoft. They are very good at giving gamers what they want. So thank you Microsoft for that ….

        • Tracy Babb

          Yeah, I agree. Unfortunately though I don’t see much polite feedback on here. Most of it is people just whining about how they’re entitled to free games.

    • Bennijin

      I’d consider Keflings and Iron Brigade to be quite high-end Arcade games actually, but your point is just as valid. They should be used in multiples to add to GWG, not to be the sole offerings.

  • Quique Gza.

    And i was thinking on renovating my gold subscription, not anymore!, i’ll be ok then…

    • Bennijin

      Renewing. Renovating is what Microsoft should be doing with the service!
      And the offices. Including the staff.

    wow terrible, games with gold is a joke.

  • slasaru

    I hope MS xbox managers will receive the same sort of bonus this year as we given for GWG

    • Master Troll

      Which is basically nothing

    • Bennijin

      They deserve it.

      Funniest comment yet since this thread started

  • Scott Dunn

    Please don’t take this the wrong way Microsoft, but you please put Sony in charge of the Games for Gold program? :(

    • Holesome

      Sony just posted another quarterly loss so perhaps it’s not a good idea to put them in charge of anything. Sometimes it pays to give things away and sometimes it helps put you in the poor house.

      • Scott Dunn

        Maybe they’re at a loss for handing out good games like KOA: Reckoning and Battlefield 3!!!! LOL

  • KieferKarotte

    Why not halo wars (like in southkorea) ? :( that would be really cool.

    • baconcheeswhiz89

      now this is a game that would of been perfect.

    • Ross

      They really got Halo Wars? Wow now that would be a really good game to give out…… *nudge nudge* Microsoft!

  • Jason

    People keep saying that Sony “gives” you the games….they don’t. They let you borrow them until you don’t pay for plus.
    Yes, this months selections are less than spectacular, but at least they are yours to keep. And with all the releases coming out at the end of October and in November, why would they want to give you something to play instead of making you go out and buy a new game? I know people don’t like to hear it, but this is a business.

    • evilfangs .

      Yeah but people keep also saying they’re rentals, but quite frankly if you was getting games like that for “free” would you really stop paying for PS+?

      • Jason

        Yes, I would really stop paying for something even if it meant that all the games that they ever offered would not be available to me anymore. I am not sentimental about games. I beat them then move on due to their always being some new game coming out that I want to play. Yes, Dragon’s Dogma is cool, but I got a lot of new games coming out that I want to play so a borrowed game is just never going to be played. I have PS+. I have maybe downloaded one game. I have been playing Last of Us, Beyond Two Souls, and Kingdom Hearts and after that….next gen only for me. I have bought more games from the PlayStation Store than I have downloaded PS+ games for “free”. It is all XB1 and PS4 from here on out. And, due to there being nothing special on the PS4 launch game list I will probably try to sell that one around Christmas time on Ebay and wait for something like The Order to come out before I get another PS4.

        • Disturbed_Court_Jester

          “even if it meant that all the games that they ever offered would not be available to me anymore.”

          You do know that if you pick PS+ back up, you can re-download the free games(or rentals) that you have all ready downloaded in the past right?

          • Jason

            Yes, I do know that.

        • Flawless

          “I beat them then move on due to their always being some new game coming out that I want to play.”

          you say this but you were trying to make a point about PS+ being rentals and getting to keep GWG games,if your just going to move on then why care if you get to keep them?

          • Jason

            I don’t, but obviously a lot of people do. I was just making the distinction that one gives and one lends. I don’t see why people are complaining over something that is free anyway. It is free. Get it or don’t. You aren’t owed anything.

    • martin_m95

      I keep saying it and im gonna say it again : I better have a great game for as long as i have premium than a garbage forever

      • Jason

        Yes, “garbage”. You know what they say, one man’s garbage is another man’s treasure.
        Not every game ever made has to appeal to your tastes to be considered good. These aren’t garbage games. They just don’t appeal to you.

    • Disturbed_Court_Jester

      Same old counter argument. People like myself who constantly have a online gaming subscription, wont notice a difference in renting these game or owning them, I will still be playing them when ever i want and for as long as i want too, as long as I’m paying for the subscription. Yes, eventually the servers will shut down when the consoles lifespan ends, but you would also loose these games that Microsoft are giving you that are “yours to keep” when the servers shut down and your console or it’s HD goes out.

      • Jason

        That is like the church telling Galileo that he had the same old counter argument when he said that the Earth revolves around the sun….just because it is the same argument doesn’t make it any less valid. MS gives you games to keep, Sony lets you borrow them . Justify it to yourself however you like. It is still correct.

        • Lloytron

          It is correct, but utterly irrelevant. PS+ offers great value and is worth the sub. Yes, you lose access to the games without a sub, but it is worth the price of the sub until you don’t want to play them any more.

          Btw your analogy is very flawed, it’s nothing like that.

  • Ivanx360xpira

    It´s a joke…not that I was expecting something spectacular, but at least one GoD by month and without region lock if possible…

    you know what…I´d buy The darkness in shocktober IF IT WASN´T REGION LOCKED!!A suggestion MN, MS should create a system just like it works on Nokia phones, change the region of the device, pay the taxes and currency conversion and you are good to go…or just offer the same promotion worldwide…

    I´m tired of getting the message that the game is region locked…it´s kinda depressive!!

    • Dylan

      The Darkness 1 is a pretty good game too. I really liked it.

      • Ivanx360xpira

        indeed I heard good things about it.

    • Some guy

      It’s better that way. I bought Dark Void and I can’t download it because it’s region lock. And I can’t download any GoD i bought before because of region lock.
      And my hard drive is full so I have to switch USB keys and remove old games.
      I just want to play video games.

  • Master Troll

    Keep letting sony outshine you MS that has got to be the worst thing you guys have let happen to loyal xbox fans
