thought i would start a new thread,as we can add the new titles in here when they are released each month
(even though its only until the Xbox One gets released) disgust

Eurogamer

Quote
Microsoft has detailed its two-free-games-a-month initiative for Xbox Live Gold members by clarifying that a new title will be added on the 1st and 16th of every month.

Only one game will be available at a time, but once you download a title it will stay connected to your account as a past purchase, meaning it will be retrievable at a later date should you decide to delete it.

"Each specially selected, fan-favorite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what," noted Microsoft on its official site.

The current selection is Fable 3, which will be removed at the end of the month when either Halo 3 or Assassin's Creed 2 will take its place.


I know I shouldn't pull my nose up at 'free' games,but....Halo 3,Fable 3 and AC2 when SONY have had these(and more)
Spoiler for Hiden:
someone posted this list in the EG comments,but says it does not include Mini's and PSOne games,I am guessing this is the EU list

Yeah, my guess is that after that it will turn into an Xbone-only program to get people to upgrade.

Would it kill them to offer less "fan favorites"...code for games so old we can't sell them anymore so we are giving them away....

Fable 3 and AssCreed 2 I already have for the PC, and Halo 3 I already beat, so I think this is going to have the same issue I had with PSN Plus:  the games they make available are mostly games I already have played or outright own.  that's why I like Plus for the Vita- plenty of stuff that I haven't already played or own elsewhere.

A major problem for them is that due to their anti-indie policies, they might not have enough of a game library to support it on the XB1 if they happen to continue it.

The only reason why Sony's able to continue PS+ into the PS4 era with free games the moment it comes out is that they have indies already lined up, but they also have indies clamoring to get in since they won't need publishing deals to do so.

I haven't turned on my console for while so I just noticed this, they are offering Live Gold for $1.  Does this mean I can subscribe and cancel, basically getting Fable 3 for a buck?  I already have Halo 3/AC2.

Apparently Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2 were not actually going to happen this month,it was the Media,and everyone else who misinterpreted what was said,at the press conference.

MS said that this offer which will last until Xbox One is released,will include Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2,so the 6 year and 4 year old games are just part of the promotion,not the start of it

so as Laner's post confirms,we get the arcade game,Defense Grid.

If games like Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 are their marquee titles, then I wouldn't expect much from this program. Still, it's free, and hopefully they'll offer at least one or two games I don't already have.

I honestly don't understand why they're doing this.

It's like they're asking to be compared unfavorably to Sony.  If they hadn't bothered doing this, people would have gone on saying how much better Gold is for multiplayer, adding that it's what's important.  Now they're inviting a more direct comparison, and purposefully looking like shit.

Was there some kind of deal between Sony and Microsoft where they agreed that Sony would take the heat last gen and MS would be king of crap this go 'round?

To be honest, it's basically what happened for this Gen, and I think we'll see a similar situation.

Basically, while MS was successful, and definitely "won" this generation, it was as much because Sony so thoroughly screwed up the launch of the PS3. MS got almost everything their way. Sony's clawed their way back into relevance, using up all the rep they had from the PS2.

Now 7 years later, fresh off the success, their executives got too used to a position of dominance. They're not used to actually adding value to things they put out, and just thinking people would accept it as they have before.

While I am an unabashed Sony game fan, the reality of the situation is that MS and Sony need each other if anything good for us gamers is to come about. Sony would never have offered the excellent PS+ if not for MS's Gold subscriptions. Sony wouldn't have gotten their act together at all if MS hadn't done so well with the 360. Likewise, as much as people might hate exclusives, both MS and Sony are ponying up a lot of money to fund games, or even start studios.

I did not play Fable 2, but I did DL part 3 and so far I'm enjoying it. Some of the side quests are really good.

Which part? The part that it's a four year old game that everyone has already played or the part where we have to wait 2 more weeks to get it?

does anyone know if dead rising 2 kept in the need to restart a new game with your previous games (pumped up) character?  how about the random events which would occur concurrently, forcing you to decide which plot points you wanted to see?  i actually really enjoyed both aspects and was hoping they stuck around for the sequel
