      The console has only been for a couple months. Unless you sit on your butt all day in your mothers basement, there’s plenty of games available now.

        Going by your logic, Xbox 360 Gold Members shouldn’t be getting free games considering how many games are on it. It’s BS that we aren’t getting anything for being a Gold Member on Xbox One even though we spent $500+ on this damn console.

        Gold Member of Games with Gold, so yes I do. How come Xbox One Gold Members are being shafted but not Xbox 360 Gold Members? Like I said, it doesn’t even have to be games right now. Why not two free movie rentals a month until the “real” Games with Gold system is put out.

      It was actually square enix’s choice, Microsoft didn’t lock this one.
      The only other game that I had encountered that was like this was GTA IV.

        The US version has always been region-locked, possibly because of the censorship that occurred in Germany and Japan. The European and Japanese versions are region-free. (Play-Asia has a lot of helpful information on region compatibility of 360 games)

    Thank you MS, for putting your best foot forward with this program in 2014. I’ve wanted to play GoL for years and never picked it up despite it being on sale repeatedly. Sleeping Dogs sounds like a great game I almost definitely would have never tried otherwise. This is exactly how Games with Gold should be.

    Even though I already have Sleeping Dogs (thanks to PS Plus), and bought Tomb Raider, this is the kind of bonus that adds to the value of XBox LIVE. I really hope some of the older Arcade titles long past their prime get offered at some point.

    • The Truth Must Be Said

      1) MS didn’t force you to pay them $500 to get thier console.
      2) You already bought 8 xbox one game, you don’t need free games because you are rich.
      3) You didn’t leave anything to have a chance to become free when you purchased the 8 games lol.

      • Josh Nelson

        1) Not exactly sure what you mean. I didn’t say I was pressured into buying it. However, now that you bring it up, I did get a call from an “enforcer” from MS. They said that if I didn’t buy a Day One console, they would kidnap my pets and force them to commit crimes in the name of Sony fans.

        2) Not even close to rich, just work hard.

        3) Like I said above, I understand that a free game may not be an option at the moment, but I’d just like to see some sort of gesture of appreciation (free movie rental, 5% discount on a DLC item, etc…).

      Games with gold will be available “later in 2014” according to Major…

      I see your point but you have to think… XB1 is new and so are all the games. It would cost to much money to give every one a ( New $60 Game )…. All the games we get free for the 360 are old and worth much money….

        Don’t get me wrong, I love my X1. It fits my needs so much better than a PS4, that it’s already becoming a “can’t live without it” device in my house! I wouldn’t expect them to give a 60$ game away, but I’d like to see something. Since they aren’t porting any of the older retail or arcade games at the moment, Maybe they could give us a free HD movie rental each month. Just something so that Live doesn’t seem like a better deal on 360 (regardless of if it is or isn’t).
