    Do we know yet if Xbox live membership is changing much with the Xbox One? Or is it pretty much going to be the same as the existing service just transferred onto the new console?

    Because at this late stage in the 360 consoles life, it wouldn't surprise me is Microsoft just couldn't be bothered to really put much effort into improving their existing service if they have bigger and (possibly) better plans in store for the Xbox One service.

    ''Next few months'' But yes pretty safe to say everyone thought ACII and H3 would be the 2 games this month.

    So, 3 month Gold sub, download "free" games, don't renew. Win?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    You only get to download the "free" games released during your sub? Any source on this get to keep the games without Gold?

    They could say "the next games are Pimp My Ride and Hulk Hogan's Main Event" and some fanboy will defend them saying they are "free FFS!!!!!"

    Remember when they gave away that AWFUL under water game after the connectivity issues they had over Christmas one year?

    That's probably the next game on the list.

    Or Amy. You know, that title that's meant to be so broken it's practically unplayable...

    Undertow!, that was fucking awful even for a free game to make up for the problems
  • Deleted user 1 July 2013 22:04:30
    MS are a pile of shitty tight cunts who probably think that this offer was the bees knees and we're the assholes for complaining about being given half a decade old games for "free".

    No wonder that guy left the sinking ship for a failing mobile phone game dev.

    I guess Halo 3 and AC2 are the marquee titles. They are gonna build up to them.

    ROFL. :D

    The first month is always rough.

    @King_Edward
    That has to be a drain on resources, are they going to keep this up for PS4?

    I kinda feel bad for the guys that made Defense Grid. Their games fine, but don't even want to play it for 'free'.

    At first, no. The first few weeks (even months), won't be that good. Everything is going to be brand new, so it will be a while before we get some really good stuff I suspect.

    You can't anyway. Seriously, I've tried and it just keeps asking for the points.

    Who knows? I'm sure there's some crazy sales science going on at Sony. They're doing a good job of hiding it, but I'm sure they're very particular about what they give away, and when.

    This isn't the same as PS+. Like some guy said, it's more of a 'bonus' thing. They're just a nice little extra. I don't think MS are going after the PS+ market here. PS+ in its current state you pretty much subscribe purely (unless you love cloud storage) for the games that are made available via the service. You buy XBL Gold to play online, not for discounted/'free' games.

    Obviously with the PS4 this'll change, I think Microsoft will have fucked up again if they don't improve the offerings on the One. If PS+ on PS4 gets you online play and a consistent quantity of titles, then it's instantly going to likely be better value than XBL Gold and will make people much less bothered about having to pay to play online.

    It's an excellent TD game. Nothing wrong with the game itself.

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    I'm still being asked for 800 pts too. I'm in Australia, guess it might take them a while to get around to us (unless they just ban it!).

    Sony has already spoke about their PS+ line up for PS4.

    Essentially it is Drive Club (Plus Edition). I expect that to be a free to play model where you buy cars.

    After that they will have a few months of PSN / Indie titles.

    But to be fair there is not much else they could do unless they got Gaikai up to stream free PS3 games or offer PS1/2 games.

    That's kind of what I was expecting them to do?
  • Deleted user 30 July 2013 15:24:00
    So the next free game is due this week?

    What will it be? I am going to speculate it will be an old XBLA title like Castle Crashers or some such.

    I am excited (free game hubba hubba) but at the same time expecting to be disappointed...
