    No. Not what I said. I said “support on the 360” and I’m not just talking about GwG, I’m talking about maintaining an active “scene”. I certainly wouldn’t expect a GwG programme with the One and as I inferred, I will not be buying a next-gen machine until I can make a more considered choice.

    This is really a slap in the face to 360 owners. The games are extremely old and cheap. For those who are saying Sony is only “renting” games for free, how many of you have cancelled your live subscription since signing up? I’d assume very few. Which is the same case with PlayStation owners, who will have PS plus for the period of time they have the consoles, thus games for as long as they would own them regardless.

        Strange logic you have there. So a product that is superior while being less expensive and offering what can be reasonably offered as a better services is a ‘paulerstation?” I guess that would make the new MS console the “X-Overpriced-Undereducated Consumer-Box.”

      Congrats on the stupidest comment posted on this blog. Hard to believe that you would rather put your tiny parts in a toaster than get a free game. They should cancel the promotion to stop idiots like you from hurting themselves.

        I have played the game and it certainly wouldn’t be something that would cause a normal person to want to put their genitals in a toaster. I mean seriously the game is free… you didnt pay a single penny for it. If it is that bad then dont DL it. That simple. This is not the same thing as PS+ where your part of your subscription is access to free games… this is just a perk for gold subscribers not a feature. The only games they promised was AC2 and Halo 3, both of which they delivered. No one promised you a particular quality or type of game for the rest of the promotion. So maybe it is you that should just “play the damn game,” refuse to DL, switch to PS+, cancel your gold subscription or whatever… just stop whining.

        Really?? I haven’t even played that game yet and i thought your comment was really funny! I wouldn’t doubt it was a terrible game. To correct you Burnt Offering, the game is NOT free. I pay Microsoft money for Xbox Live so i can play online, it is just a bonus that comes with me PAYING for it. Therefore not free… Very few things in the world are free.. but seriously everyone has to take things so damn literal. Todd i thought your comment was funny.I think it’s really funny that people go on a rant about something and at the end tell them to stop whining, but really that person is whining about them whining, so really at this moment i’m whining about you whining that other people are whining, it’s a vicious cycle. So shut the hell up:)

        Let me correct you. look at your own words.. You say it is a bonus… as in something that is not a part of the service you are paying for… so IT IS free. Show me one part of your service agreement that tells you that you are entitled to free games every month as a part of the paid service. Otherwise your whole statement is a load of garbage where you stated your opinions as thought they are fact. I do find it hilariously hypocritical that you started whining about others wining about others whining. So that would make you the worst of the lot then. So why don’t you ‘shut the hell up.’

      Region restrictions are not the fault of microsoft. That is issues with the publishers and your government. And you are getting free games… just not the ones you think they should be giving you. Here is the thing… it is a promotion and not a part of the service that you paid for. They could offer you NOTHING for free and you still wouldnt have a legit complaint.

    There sure are a lot of immature people on here who just have to moan about everything… If you don’t like the games you are given free access to play/download every 2 weeks or so then simply don’t download them, downloading of them is not compulsory. if you don’t like Xbox LIVE, Xbox 360 or the upcoming Xbox ONE then again ownership or use is not compulsory or even a mandatory requirement for living, so exercise your right to not buy or use any of them if you so wish.. If you prefer the (some would say lesser) products and services that Sony offers then go to a Sony website where you’ll be among like minded people and you can then stop being that annoying immature whiny-ass little troll that “Gamers” over the age of puberty hate..

    So this Game with Gold promotion is to what, compete with Sony or to try to encourage Live members to keep their Gold till the new gen consoles come…seriously Microsoft, you really think this is working? Read the comments, 1 happy for 9 unhappy. All this is doing is upsetting the majority of your users. Its this attitude of your “gratitude” for our loyalty that is chasing some away..wake up before you loose all your gamers…GAMERS, its a game console remember! Whats the point in bonus games most people dont want, i mean how many people actually play these games for gold games a week after they released? So…is it working, i dont think so. Id rather you fixed your server issues and make games i paid for work like they did 5 years ago than get these games i dont want, maybe then i would consider giving you more of my money for that service. This is just a waste and a shame. Im one member that has had enough of Microsoft’s greed and service deterioration, and now you rub it in my face with this…no no no you do not want my money! I will miss parts of Forza, but not worth all the money for gold anymore. It is more like bronze these days.

At least i can get a decent steering wheel for it though! Microsoft cant even be bothered to fix the dashboard issue which cause there own Wireless Force feedback Wheel to have force feedback issues sorted out, which has been a well documented issue for over a year now and caused my wheel to break. Microsoft simply dont care…its one reason i use Linux and wont ever return to Windows.

        In the last few months party chat constantly crash in and out, time it takes to log into live on startup is way longer than when it started, games loose connection to server all the time, to mention a few! I am joining plus yes, and for what i want (gaming) its better. I dont care about menu’s i mean how much time is spent in the menu compared to the game. The gaming experience is what matter on a game console, plus the fact Microsoft refuse to fi issues like the force feedback issue with their own product which has been a issue over a year now. Not all have the experience i have as you are happy…but where i am, its a pretty bad service right now!

    Exactly! Thank You Twister! You are thinking EXACTLY how Microsoft wants you to think.. If you were to go onto the internet and download some program from some site that is “free”, if you think about it, it’s not free. You are paying your ISP a monthly fee, so really that program is however much you are paying your ISP, very simply business. Yes its hypocritical duhh, that’s the point i was making. haha! is it fun being stupid? i guess i wouldn’t know😛

      Your argument is akin to me telling my neighbor that they owe me money for water usage simply because there water ling is under ground on my property. But to address your example, there are plenty of free hotspots and places that offer internet usage, so if you DL something free then you are stealing from them since they paid for it, by your example. The bottom-line is that the game are in fact free because when you purchase live the service and not the games since they are a ‘bonus.’ You can argue it like all you want, but here in the adult world it isn’t that way. And if you thought you were paying for it, you went ahead and purchased the plan not knowing what titles you would be getting and with the disclaimer that the promotion can be stopped at any time without warning or explanation? Not very smart consumer practices. So ya, if I want to know what stupid feels like, you will be the first I ask.

        Man, it must be good to be you! Where is this little fantasy world you live in where you believe everything in this world is just free! Would you please notice that i mentioned paying YOUR ISP a monthly fee. You are not paying McDonalds free wifi they offer. If the game is so “free” then go ahead and try to DL it without Gold, see how far you get. If its “free” like in your fantasy world, then it should be no problem right? If you pay money in order to get something they claim to be “free” it is not “free” that’s what they want you to believe so you think you are getting a better deal. Hopefully your little brain can comprehend that better, not sure how more simply i can put it. haha!

      Yeah its pretty hard to call something free thats part of something subscription based. Its purely a bonus for gold members. As is the PS hired games but using renting based system to try keep you using the service and giving them a continued income. PS is where my money is going now, just feels right giving them my money rather than Microsoft. Seems all Microsoft want to do is rip people off, listen in on us and watch everything we do and then still try control what it is we do…no thank you! Playstation lets us use whatever peripherals we want to, a logitech steering wheel if we like, a oculus rift headset…anything YOU want…plus if you choose PS+ you get to play decent new release titles as well as the games you purchase.

        Very true, now if we were talking about when the PSN went down for that week or however long it was, at that time PSN didn’t require PS+ in order to play online, and after they got PSN back up, as an apology Sony gave everyone i believe 2 FREE games? but Microsoft they wouldn’t think to be that thoughtful of their customers.. screw them! They change their mind so damn much, just because they thought something was a good idea and all their customers hated it… So what they are offering a patch at launch to get rid of your SpyBox from checking in through an active internet connection every day or whatever it is… who says they wont release another patch once you have bought their console, to make their console check in again? no thank you!! PS4 FTW!

Business, you clearly not listening and nor have you ever heard of a loss leader have you, check that up in your dictionary before you make silly remarks. These games have never been advertised as free games now have they…its always been games with gold, reason being they are NOT free! Its to try get people to stay with gold, and its failing.

      There are also some games called free with gold, like Spartacus, or Happy Wars. Games for gold are not free games and never have been advertised by Microsoft as much…FACT!

    So, here are my questions for everyone in order to know whether or not this game is free.

    When did you buy your Gold?
    If later then June, did you buy Gold mostly because of the free games they offered or because of not being able to play any online mode?

    If you bought it before June, then stop complaining because this is something of which you knew NOTHING about, and now that you have something extra for your money you’re complaining about it not being good enough. If you bought it later and you bought it specifically because you get free games of which you probably knew the quality since the 2nd game offered was an arcade game.

    OT: Excited about getting Halo 3, but hated Might & Magic when i played earlier. Not saying it’s a bad game, but not my cup of tea. Did like pretty much all other games so far, with the exception of Rainbow Six.
