    MS Live Gold free game versus Playstation Plus free gameS

    *cue drumroll for Microsoft's announcement of the first free game they will make available to their Xbox Live Gold members*

    Defense Grid: The Awakening! *cue clown's car honky horn sound*

    Oh my giddy aunt!

    Have Microsoft employed someone whose primary role is to completely fucking piss off every Live Gold member ever?! A f'ing 6.80 Arcade game from 2009! What a complete bunch of tossers.

    Now...let's look at what you get (in the European store) for free if you are a Playstation Plus member this month....

    Uncharted 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Catherine, The Cave, Demon's Souls, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD, Kingdom's of Amalur: Reckoning and LittleBigPlanet Karting.


    That's not counting the free Vita titles: Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Gravity Rush, Rayman Origins and Sine Mora.

    Seriously, Sony have completely upped their game and Microsoft are looking stupid beyond all belief! I honestly believe MS have hammered another nail in their own coffin.

    Right then....I'm off to download Uncharted 3 (yup, i never did buy it)

    Eventually they'll be offering Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed II...when really it should be Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed III!

    I think this is punishment for the drm removal

    Weren't you able to keep the games released on Live? If yes, then it's understandable why it would be older games.

    The free games u get from live are yours, you own them. So even if u choose not to re subscribe to live gold, the games are still yours.

    The thing is there is no reason why you would stop your PS+ subscription, Sony make it well worth the cost.

    And when Sony pull the plug on the PS3 servers?

    It's funny, a lot of people here bitch about how they always want physical and hope it never dies, but are fully supportive of PS+ digital downloads. Talk about double standards.

    Why can't a person want both digital and physical? Why can't a person support both of them? As long as people still buy physical copies, I don't see physical going away for a long time.

    Free game is still a free game, so this is good news. However couldn't they have picked something less... popular or not so old game? Because everyone who already wanted to play this game has played it.
    Defense Grid btw is awesome, I own it for PC. Play it. However same problem, very old game.

    Some people on here say they want physical and only physical. But no doubt this'll be the last gen for physical, especially for handhelds, they said at E3 over 60% of Vita software is sold through PS+, no doubt thanks to Plus.

    The program's been out for less than a month while PS+ and free games have been around for nearly 2 years.

    Signed in to Live? Understandable for digital.

    PS plus games are temporary, enough time to complete it though. Why would they be against it?

    I love physical I always prefer it over digital, I only and only buy digital if it is cheaper like %75. I love the look on my shelf near the tv, lots of new and old games. And this shelf will vanish soon thanks to the digital age, yes I am so against to digital , yet the fact that I don't have lots of money stands

    People want what they see value in. They see value in physical since it has resell/trade value. People see value in PS+ because there are shit-ton of games that more than pay for the price of admission. That is not a double-standard.

    Your statement makes no sense, if someone is going to offer me a free digital download of a game I'm not going to say no just because it isn't on a disc!

    In regards only to current services - I'd say PS+ by a long, mile/kilometre margin.

    But in terms of potential - XBL Games with Gold would e ahead if they released games from the same time frame as PS+ (i.e. recent releases frequently etc) but with the bonus of keeping it should your Gold membership expire (which is what I believe what GwG is).

    Not sure if they'll be keen to undercut everyone (including themselves) by giving away free games which have been recently released.
