    Well this is BS A World Of Keflings? really? I wasn’t interested in the game before not even interested even for free I mean I don’t see what fun the game would be. And as for Iron Brigade I had the game back when it was titled Trenched. Why couldn’t they make a 360 game free like a current one that was released earlier this year? I am saddened by this selection.

    2 great games, too bad I already own Iron Brigade.

    Now that’s said, what the hell, who thought giving 2 old arcade games was a good idea?

    Considering almost every games so far are published by MS(I’m guessing it’s because they don’t need to spend anything for them), I was expecting something bigger.
    I would normally complain, but I know for sure now that it’s useless.

    So far i was pretty satisfied with this whole Games with Gold promotion, it had some “meh” games, but most of them were great (best one imo crackdown). However, this month is complete BS and pretty much anything would be better. Of course it’s free, but if they’re gonna give something away, they shouldn’t get everybody’s hopes up with titles like AC2 and Halo 3, and then keep giving this stuff.

    And for people comparing it with PS+, it’s a payed service, so those games are not free! You only get to say ” i played for XBL Gold too ” if you wouldn’t have bought it if this promotion wasn’t there.

      What’s the complaint exactly?
      That PS+ offers slightly more slightly newer games? Well ascribe that to Sony having more to prove in trying to get people to buy their subscription. Plus one needs to maintain their PS+ subscription to have continued access to these games (unlike Games with Gold) so the selection being somewhat better should be a given.
      Let’s also not forget that your list represents nearly every Instant Game Collection game available since June, GwG officially began in July but the first game was offered in June. So what has GwG offered?

      Fable 3
      Defense Grid: The Awakening
      Assassin’s Creed II
      Crackdown
      Dead Rising 2
      Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
      Magic the Gathering 2013
      Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Vegas
      Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes
      Halo 3

      Variety and quality is there as well, and any honest person will say that next month’s two continues that. You think MS is pushing shovelware with A World of Keflings? That game has better reviews than nearly half of your IGC list.

        “C’MON” what?
        I’m just trying to observe this issue honestly and rationally. Sony offers a couple more games and their service is a little more restrictive. As far as the quality of the games goes they’re about equal (GwG games see better reviews mostly but IGC tends to offer more recent games more often).
        I think it’s fair to say the two services are pretty much even.

        I have seen the full IGC list. There’s many games on that list that are much worse (or more niche to be tactful) than anything GwG has offered or is scheduled to offer, and there’s many games that every self-respecting PS3 owner should play. There’s many on that list that were quite new when offered, and there’s many that are re-releases of games nearly a decade old.
        If GwG should be considered disappointing then IGC certainly should as well. Personally I think they’re both great.

        One month of IGC would actually be Metal Gear Rising, MotorStorm, and Remember Me (for PAL region, which MacW seems to live in based on the list he gave). IGC gives some indeterminately sized list which Sony swaps out, adds, and removes from with no discernible pattern. The full list since June is:

        LittleBigPlanet Karting
        Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (single player only)
        XCOM: Enemy Unknown
        Battlefield 3
        Payday: The Heist
        Saints Row: The Third
        Mafia II
        Need for Speed: Most Wanted
        Spec Ops: The Line
        When Vikings Attack!
        Assassin’s Creed III
        The Jak and Daxter Trilogy
        Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark
        Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen
        Far Cry 3
        Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams
        Metal Gear Rising: Revengence
        MotorStorm RC
        Remember Me

        Which is all well and good. Though I don’t think the comparison of this to GwG should favor IGC as much as many complainer think.

    I’m not sure I see the problem. The price of Gold Membership has not gone up, and as an added bonus, we now get 2 free games a month. Halo 3, AC2, Fable 3, Dead Rising 2, Rainbow Six Vegas…that’s a pretty decent spread, not even counting any of the Arcade games that have also been released under this program. If you were paying extra for a “Game of the Month Club”, or something, then you can complain. But you’ve likely been paying for Live, and would have continued to pay for Live, even without this (admittedly) small token that MS is throwing us.

    That said, the PS Plus (I don’t have a PS3 anymore, sadly) sounds really awesome, and comparatively a much bigger and better bonus. The perk of “owning” these (360) games doesn’t outweigh the superior selection and variety that Sony seems to be offering with their program.

      The problem is the way they announced it. If they had said they would give away free arcade games and the occasional GoD game then no problem. But they announced it by saying they would give away two games a month including titles such as AC2 and Halo 3.

      Now whilst that is factually accurate, it is very misleading as it implied that these would be AAA titles, not crappy arcade games.

      MS don’t give things away if they can help it so this must have been prompted by the overwhelming success of PS+. They didn’t have to run such a campaign after all, and in hindsight, they shouldn’t have.

      So it all boils down to the dramatically misjudged announcements around E3, where many mistakes were made, of which this is just one.

We get two of the worst games available on the console that are completely niche dependent–one of which is yet another tower defense game. I’m not a “complain about free stuff” person but this really does feel completely insulting.
