    Games with Gold: Now an Ongoing Benefit for Gold Members on 360

    Nice!!! hopefully it extends over to the X1

    At E3 2013, we launched Games with Gold as a limited-time program to thank our Xbox Live Gold members. Within that short period of time, we’ve seen an overwhelming response, with more than 120 million hours played with Games with Gold titles. Today, as a part of the “Week of Xbox Live,” we’re excited to announce that we are making Games with Gold an ongoing benefit for Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox 360.

    Whether they are blockbuster AAA or popular arcade titles, Games with Gold continues to offer a diverse mix of games with two free Xbox 360 titles a month – yours to keep and at no additional cost. According to recent surveys, 97 percent of participating members have given their stamp of approval for Games with Gold, and we’re excited to continue bringing you great games every month as part of our ongoing commitment to providing great value on Xbox 360.

    Don’t forget to download “Halo 3,” called “nothing short of epic” by IGN.com and available Oct. 16-31. Stay tuned to Xbox Wire and Major Nelson’s blog for new Games with Gold titles announced each month.

    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    This is great to hear, especially since I'm not moving onto the next gen for at least another year, if not longer. Newer games are definitely needed though. I understand that they won't release 3 month old games, but some games newer than 5 years old would be appreciated. So far, I have either completed or have no interest in the games they have offered. The only one worth anything to me is Halo 3 since I can still play the MP.
    I don't need no stinkin' signature!

    covers the LIVE cost for 360 owners.

    and seriously, a big thank you to Sony for introducing PS+ without which, this would never have happened.

    The perks of having a strong healthy, or not so much at times, competition between the two.

    They'll no doubt do this for the XB1 too once it has more of a liobrary to do so.

    Honestly great deal, just make them slightly more recent, and/or classic/exclusive titles (e.g. your Halos, Gears, Forzas etc).

    If MS can get close to matching what Sony has done with PS+, it will make a huge difference for me as far as getting over the bundled Kinect.

    I can agree with that. If I get some good games that I don't already have, that will recoup my cost for that Kinect. lol

    It's like "good move", but "bad execution".

    It's a start anyway, the interesting but though was this:
    Games with Gold continues to offer a diverse mix of games with two free Xbox 360 titles a month – yours to keep and at no additional cost.
    Now does that mean that even if you end your subscription would you still keep your games as part of the library? On PS+ it's only while you have your subscription so that could be an interesting one to know.

    Yes, they are yours to keep for ever.
