20 Games with Gold vs 49 Games with PS+ since July - Poor Show From Microsoft & Why PS+ is Better

So since the launch of Games with Gold back in July, Microsoft has given away 20 FREE GAMES! Ten retail games and ten Xbox Live Arcade Games. Not much of a list compared with Sony’s Playstation Plus service which also costs £40 per year but they have given away a total of 49 games, 5 PS4 Games, 29 PS3 Games and 20 PS Vita Games in the same period since July. (Microsoft, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, Xbox Live Arcade)

This 'article' sounds like a fanboyish rant of a FaceBook status. Kinda made my head hurt reading it.

That Games With Gold they headlined show off Civilization isn't the only game that comes out next month.

Dungeon Defenders is also free.

One of the great downloads of 2011. I'll definitely download this gem when its available.

Says it all! "One of the great downloads of 2011"

That's already 3 years old.

Dungeon Defenders was free many months ago on Ps+

Dungeon defenders was free on plus a long time ago. It is a gem like you said though. Hope they make another one.

I knew ps plus was good but wow... MS should be ashamed of itself for such a crappy lineup of games.
dotwithshoes  +   489d ago
It should be ashamed that they are giving away free games, instead of renting you games like Sony does?
TheBurger29  +   489d ago
I must say id rather rent them and have ps plus than ms shitty free games.
dotwithshoes  +   489d ago
So while you are just looking at your games after your PS+ runs out, you'd rather rent them than actually own them? You realize most of the games that MS has given away, Sony has rented away with PS+?
jessupj  +   489d ago
Yes they should be.

I keep hearing from people about all this money MS has. You'd think they could use some of it to invest into their customer base and actually get some games that aren't half a century old.

I guess MS are way too stingy for that. They never give anything away for free. It must really hurt MS to even give these old games.

BTW your tears are delicious.

Haha, whatever you say. You think free games that are old as dirt/have little interest surrounding them are better than renting 1-2 year old AAA blockbusters and games people actually care about? Can you honestly tell me you would rather keep Civ Rev rather than rent Bioshock Infinite for as long as you are subbed? I don't think you can.

Keep for as long as i sub (which will be every single year) >>>>>>> free games that no one cares about from ages of old. You have got to be out of your mind to think Games With Gold comes anywhere near PS plus.

Brb while i play Otlast, Uncharted 3, Bioshock Infinite, Metro: Last Light and Borderlands 2.....to name a few.

You're trying too hard.

What is it the Xbox fanboys always say? "Who buys a next-gen console and doesn't play online with it?"

Plus is a steal, no matter how you look at it. Sure, you're "renting" the games for as long as you have Plus. But why WOULDN'T you have Plus? Those "rented" games stay in your library forever and cover four different devices right now- two handhelds, two home consoles. Not to mention the regular deals, including steeper discounts than what non-Plus members get. And the games you "rent" are a year old, if not younger.

On the other hand, GWG has routinely given away either games nobody cares about, games that are 4+ years old, or both. Do you get early access to betas or something else? Cuz let's be real: it's hardly a value to give me a game that's only worth like $5 anyway for free.

As long as Plus keeps giving me stuff, why would I stop subscribing? I'm lookin at ModNation Racers, SFxT, Remember Me, Smart As, Don't Starve, Sonic & All-Stars, Xcom, Brothers, and DmC all this year, and I think I missed a couple of games. Care to look up either digital or physical prices for those games and tell me what they cost, then say that's not worth $50?

Yeah, I thought not.

Deliberate mistake, just to make sure someone read it :-)
