February’s set of free games for Xbox Live Gold Members in will be Dead Island and Toy Soldiers: Cold War. Starting Saturday (February 1st) Dead Island (Normally US $19.99) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members through February 15th .
A bit better, but Games with Gold still has a long way to go. @Below I meant that Games with Gold is getting better, not that this month's games were better than last month
I thought sleeping dogs last month was miles better. Sure its old but at least its a great game and a bit of a hidden gem. I can get crappy dead island for 6.99 if i was some kind of masochist.
Agreed, Sleeping Dogs is the best game to be included with GWG yet, in my opinion. But GWG still doesn't compare to PS plus, not even slightly. I can get Metro: Last Light, Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2 (to name a few) right now on PS3. MS need to step their game up, it should at least have been Dead Island: Riptide.
Yeah you can get "crappy dead island for 6.99' or, you can get it for free.
At least their giving out a game that wasn't on PS+ this time. PS+ got Sleeping Dogs a year ago, seeing them release the same titles PS+ had just makes PS+ look better. This time it might not be as good a game but at least it's not a reminder of how far behind GwG is in comparison to the PS+ instant games collection. @TheBrit above I personally wouldn't even download Dead Island for free. I know that I'd never play it so why bother. Sometimes even a free game isn't worth it, it's just clutter.
@TheBrit The point is, if i had wanted this game i wouldve fetches it from the bargain bin its been in since launch. Gears of War, Halo 3, Sleeping Dogs, etc may have been cheap games, but at least they were positively received by critics.
Man.. Between PS plus and games for gold. I'm totally loving it... Keep it coming...
@ FamilyGuy Dead Island hasn't been on PS+ yet as a freebie, but I got the Game Of The Year edition through PS+ for $5. $5 for the game and extra content beats the standard version being free on Xbox.
Dead Island was a game I really enjoyed. I recommend it for those who haven't gotten the chance to play it yet. Plus it's free!
Agree, Toy soldiers is also one of the best XBL indie games. However, even at this XBL still has a ways to go before it catches up with PSN. I got Bioshock infinite and Metro Last light a few days ago, along with 2 Vita games and a Ps4 game soon
I'll be benefiting from the great games offered by PS+ soon.
Didn't they cut the servers?
I myself haven't tried it. Never got into the dead rising that was free a while back so here's hoping this one's good.
Nothing free for the bone, M$?
rumors are April that program will kick off. For now though nada.
I was expecting better. This is disappointing. This months' was probably the best one. I already own Sleeping Dogs (which was a terrific game) but I never played LC: GOL (Also a terrific game). Ah well, at least I have PS+ to look forward to.
I bought Sleeping Dogs when it was on sale during December. They could have told me that they would give it away for free only days later... Solid game though.
PS+ has been SPOILING me!! It's actually kept me from buying Tomb Raider DE new ;D And February has even more to offer, woo hoo!
At least give us Dead Island Riptide. Damn cheapskates. This crap is part of why I will be going from having been a very pleased Xbox & Xbox 360 owner to definitely swapping to a PS4.
So because you don't like a FREE game that is being given out as a bonus with your subscription, you're calling them cheap? Lol.
wow dead island thats good. there getting there.
Very cool. I'll give Dead Island a pop but it's the XBLA gems that have been making Games With Gold so far, hopefully Toy Soldiers is another one.
Toy Story Cold War is a great game... loved it and would recommend to those that especially like a mix of tower defense in their games.
I just watched a couple of reviews and it looks pretty cool, I'll check it out.
Agreed, I'd rather be getting those hidden gems. I already get most of the triple A stuff, but GwG has given me some cool indie stuff. Shoot Many Robots is great fun, as was Iron Brigade.
omg ps plus just started giving bad ass games. give ms a break for once.
PS+ has been giving badass games for a while now.
Oo come on!! i was a playstaion sub, and when i first got ps plus. they were barely getting sleeping dogs. when they first started they started with indie games. then moved up to ok games, and now they're getting bad ass games. so for microsoft to start off from old games, and now its picking up thats quick!! i am just saying.
not forgetting ps+ is over 3 devices(vita,ps3,ps4)
And now that I finally own each platform, vita being my latest addition - I can fully appreciate the value of PS+ - and I can it's knocking my socks off!!!
let me rush right home and download these...smh!
Ok now were is my free game for my xbox one?i trade in my 360 last year so this list is crap to me. I will be downloading outlast next week on the ps4 i guess gamers with gold doesn't count for the xbox one. Some are so blinded by brand loyalty they just take it even though they know they are getting the worse end of a deal.
man i want dead island :( no live
