    Games with Gold - MS just doesnt care...

    Im getting really upset over the offerings were being given. I know its a newer service to MS.. (9 months i think?) but god damn... why are they giving us the oldest cheapest games?
    Gears of War 1, (why not Judgement?) Crackdown 1 (why not crackdown 2?) Halo 3 (why not Halo 4? or even ODST?)

    Its pretty obvious theyre done with the 360 and any game they offer from the past year or 2 can be found new for 20$ and under, yet they give us games like i mentioned which are 5-7 years old and can be found for 5$ and cheaper...

    We got Dead Island this month... but germany instead got metro 2033 (due to dead island being banned in that country or something iono...) but come on... PS+ got Metro Last Light this month... MS cant even compete there...

    Not only that... but the game we got yesterday - Toy Soldier Cold War... is so old (2011) and broken, the developer or MS havent even fixed the HACKED leaderboards... awesome. thanks for the broken game!! (seriously why did they give us a game with leaderboards this broken and bad?

    Maybe im spoiled by PS+


    But $#@!... come on MS, give us something better... Heres a list of games that can compete with PS+ (and still be cheap for you!) (and this is just 360 exclusives)

    Gears of War Judgment
    Crackdown 2
    Halo 4
    Halo Reach
    Left 4 Dead 2

    Other than GoW: J which came out last year... every other game there was released in 2012 or earlier... and none of these games are very pricey (20$ or less in fact...)

    Assassin's Creed 2 = $9.99
    Crackdown = $9.99
    Dead Rising 2 = $14.99
    Rainbow Six Vegas = $6.99
    Halo 3 = $4.99
    Gears of War = $0.99
    Dead Island = $9.99

    Hmmmmm...

    This whole thing was a "me too" move I think..kinda evident by the offerings. What cards does Sony have that MS doesn't to net them 6 month old blockbusters?

    I'm going to go ahead and assume it's to do with the service at it's core.

    PS+ seems to have been designed from the ground up to offer games - so it follows Sony factored in having to pay some of that sub fee to publishers. Microsoft, on the other hand; have had their subscription fees to themselves for the last 6+ years. It's got to be really hard to have to give some of that money away, so they'll probably look to minimise their spend.

    With Plus, Sony were effectively getting more money via a new revenue stream; with Games for Gold, Microsoft are probably getting less of their usual share.

    Seems like a very plausible explanation to me.

    At this point - I strongly believe GWG is simply just a bullet point for them to say "hey look, we do it too!".

    Except it's not even close.

    Yep definitely just a "me too" move. Those offerings are a total joke.

    I'm going to ask you this: What do you think will happen with the X1 games for gold offerings? Since the console is new, there isn't an expansive library of games to offer, so it is likely that recently released games will be offered.

    But that is not the case with the 360. There is an enormous amount of newer quality games that could be given.

    The Xbox One will probably only get indy games for free for the first year.

    There is no way I can sit back and assume the Xbox One will get better games for free.

    Yeah, while I will continue to say, free is free. MS could step up their game a little. At least games that are made in the same year. lol
