It's awesome because it's free but tbh it's a boring game... the worst Hitman yet (only the movie is even worse lol)
thorstein  +   122d ago
"this program is only available for Xbox 360 users, but Phil Spencer ensures that Xbox One will be getting Games with Gold ‘fairly soon’."

When and what are they going to offer?
Eonjay  +   122d ago
This is miles ahead of their previous offering. Not exactly on par with the PS3 offering of three fairly recent games, but an improvement is an improvement and that should be acknowledged.
Neixus  +   122d ago
@Thorstein, don't expect anything else than indie games. Both sony and microsoft can't afford to release a AAA game for free yet on ps4/xbone

It is awesome, but it's like the Justin Bieber of Hitman games. Talented musician who sells a lot of music, but generally hated compared to others, because that's the cool thing to do.

*If Microsoft had any clue about what the heck they were doing they would have Remade Crimson Skies in HD & had it shipped Free, physical copy, with each XB1.

* The problem at Microsoft, is the people who know what to do, aren't in high enough positions for their opinions to matter.

* Those at Microsoft who call the shots, don't know squat about anything other than SPENDING MONEY & copy other people's ideas.

That Corporate BS bleeds through into the gaming division of the company, because it's controlled by the BS.

* When those at Microsoft actually deferred to the people who play games, things were really well.

Once the corporate Shysters got wind of how much money was to be made, they wanted to control that money flow.

They don't care about us or games or anything other than gaining as much control as possible of their money flow.

* At that level in America, it's about control control control control.

It's perverted really.

* I'm saying this as somebody who has been with Xbox since the beginning but now I can't support them.

You have no grasp on how a business works do you? Those in charge do not make choices blindly. Companies research and test every product and service. On top of that, many companies promote creativity among employees to generate new business ideas. Its a win win for employee and company. Do not be so blind and arrogant.

You just described Google, NOT Microsoft. Microsoft makes more assumptions about their market than many of other the top 10 most profitable companies. Microsoft has been known to tell people what the want rather than listen and use their monopolistic position to drive this home because the consumer has no other choice.

Microsoft's monopolistic bullying however is starting to loose its effectiveness because Microsoft is loosing their monopoly on many markets. Between Google, Apple, and the PlayStation brand many of Microsoft's brands are loosing ground to the three companies' innovations and successes in their respective markets.

The ONLY product still raking in money is Office and to some degree Windows and ONLY because of the massive corporate and educational dependence on each of these products, more specifically Office. Office is the only product Microsoft makes that has no good alternative to compete against it.

Fable 3 wasn't 5 years old, neither was Dead Island or Tomb Taider GoL or Dead Island Riptide (RSA) or Sleeping Dogs or Toy Soldiers or Shoot Many Robots or Iron Brigade or World of Keflings or Dead Rising 2 or Clash of Heroes

In fact only 6 out of 23 games so far were 5 years old when they became part of GwG.
So this isn't really a "change" from being 5 years old, it is the 74% norm.

So i've heard you like to keep your games forever? Let's see for how long you will keep this game. It's good, but not as good as the Past Hitman games. No worth kepping it after finishing it. Sly Cooper: Thieves of Time is better imo.

Enough with the "Rental service" please. The only way to acquire GWG games is to be subscribed to Gold. Same difference. Why would you not be a Gold member if you own an Xbox (assuming that's all you play)...not much you can do without being one.
Therefore being an indefinite Plus/Gold member to whichever platform you want makes sense; the rental claim is a non-point.

Another difference for you likelyhood of cancelling ps+ when the free games are this good... Minimal, xbox live on the otherhamd uh already cancelled and won't be renewing anytime soon, so the argument is wasted sure if you stop renewing ps+ you'll no longer get to play your games, who in there right mind is gonna stop ps+ when the games they give out month after month are pretty fantastic, exceptional when compared to microsoft's offerings, sure you get to keep the games but 90% of these games are debate able as to if I even want it on my hard drive taking up space let alone my time to actually play them, the games are awful hence why it's gears 1 and crackdown 1 and now the worst hitman of all, how about crackdown 2 for free or gears of war 3 or 2 even think I'll still with ps+ and as it's never gonna cancelled as it stands I get to "keep" all my games anyway, and either way by the time I've finished them there's normally a sequel or better alternative out so delete and download the new games.... Priceless!

When and if you stop paying for gold, you keep it. It's yours.

Same game on ps+, when and if you stop paying for it! you can't keep it! it's not yours.

I do think PS+ is a better deal! but it doesn't make the game yours to keep forever on your HD to play.
LogicStomper  +   122d ago
@Dirtnapstor

It's definitely true that for both, you have to subscribe to get the games.

"Why would you not be a Gold member if you own an Xbox (assuming that's all you play)...not much you can do without being one.
Therefore being an indefinite Plus/Gold member to whichever platform you want makes sense; the rental claim is a non-point. "

So the big assumption for your argument here is that people don't unsubscribe for PS+ and Xbox Live. Well I've actually unsubscribed from Xbox Live for the time being because of uni, so being able to play these GWG games does in face make a different and hence, is a point.

@Philoctetes

Don't move the goal posts. The comparison is between GWG and PS+, not PS+ and multiplayer-only titles.
DigitalRaptor  +   122d ago
The question is... do you really think Microsoft are going to offer the same number, density, quality of titles every single month as PS+ does and let you keep them?

Sorry, but nope. If Microsoft were okay about this and had no reservations, they would have been owning the value of PS+ years ago. Crimson Dragon and Lococycle would have been free of charge to Gold members at launch.

@dirtnap,

Actually no its not the same! PS+ members would always have to pay to keep the free games. Where as if your Xbox Live gold expired the games are still yours! PS+ games become Demos til you subscribe again! Also the one downside to Xbox tho is that if your were to sell the system you ddl your games to, you would need Xbox Live gold to re-ddl and play again!

@Philoctetes,

For one Titanfall is $60 and not free! But yes, you always need XBL gold to play it, which makes it no different than needing PS+ for the free games! Fair enough!

Games with gold won't ever be giving away new games so who cares? Most people trade in their old games not keep them on the hard drives so having civ revolution forever isn't a plus or even hit man which isn't that fun to play once you have beaten it once.

When did I mention PS3 or PS+ in my statement? This is a article about Free games for Gold Live and my statement pertains to Xbox owners and consoles which is 100% fact. If you guys don't own a XBox or have Gold, then why does it upset you guys so much or why you are even here in the first place.

Seriously, that is how the Free Gold games work on X360. If you own one, you would know.

Here are the steps:

1. Log-in to your Gold Xbox Live account on X360 or Xbox.com

2. Find the Free Gold game for the period.

3. Hit the "Free" button and that is it. It is attached to your account forever, even if your Live subscription runs out.

For your info, I also have PSN+ and a PS4.

Bad Hitman game, its full of scripted events and every mission is divided into 3 small sandboxes, instead of a huge one like it had been in every game. But hey if someone hasn't played it, its free.

I want to see Games With Gold coming to X1. Granted, like with PSN Plus it will take sometime cause there are hardly any games to give out yet, but come on its been almost 6 months. At least offer something else.
RosweeSon  +   122d ago
Ps+ is like Netflix for games where's games for gold is more like the adverts at the start of youtube videos just time wasting and a pain in the ass. No one wants the launch games from 360 7 years after they launched let alone all the games the have dived in the last 12-18 months. I can't believe this is pleasing to some people, sure if your a fan of the series or what not but when don't are giving away Uncharted 3! Yes the latest one, not to mention uncharted on vita and gravity rush, arguably the top exclusive games they have on their systems yet they are giving them away, sure xbox are giving you free games but it's likely the bargain bucket of gaming, if you happy paying money for tat fair enough but when sony are giving away free copies of tomb raider!! No not the original playstation but one of the top 5 games of last year and xbox people are getting hitman, wow I'm glad I'm not but if I was still in the xbox camp I would not be happy with the tripe that is being gifted each month, they can barely sell it so yeah well give it away, whereas sony seem to go what is the best game we could do for free... Yeah go on then, cheers Sony! I always own all nintendo systems so fanboy doesn't even come into it but seriously Microsoft have got there seriously biased fans but all you sat on the fence should be ashamed don't except substandard services, Run!! It will not change until it has to, I.e people are flocking in the masses from microsoft, I've done so I'm the last 6 months or so, although still finishing off my xbox 360 games but luckily I'm nearing the end what with absolutely nothing out on xbox 360 that isn't available and most likely better on other systems. Whereas I bought a ps3 whilst I waited for ps4 problem is my ps4 is sat there waiting for the end of summer and my ps3 backlog just gets bigger and bigger and better, thanks ps+ ;) and all for less than netflix a month £5/6.. A.k.a a bloody bargain!

Whereas sony will likely have GTA 5 on plus for Christmas this year, Microsoft yea you get to keep them but the speed of which these games are coming and the quality of which they are lacking it's gonna be a long LONG time before I go man xbox Players get to keep them games, jealous, nah cos there all so seriously outdated by the time they are free it's practically pointless, by the time the free games are good on xbox 360 it'll be dead in the water as 80% of people would have moved on to bigger and better things, there not even offering free games on Xbox one at the moment after promising this would likely start in 2014 well were in april now that's a 3rd of the year gone and still no sign, yet by the time they do (end of the summer) they'll be giving free copies of dead rising 3 wow! Great for 1st time buyers but all you launch lot gonna be happy with that, games for gold is weeeeak!!! And needs to be double up on the freebies and hurried up on the release years of the games nobody wants perfect dark zero for free... Your gonna get it at some point no doubt tho, not like it'll be a free copy of halo 4!

Ps+ all day every day the fact it's pretty much essential on ps4 dumps all over the you don't get to keep them on Sony consoles, well on Xbox one you don't even get then yet sony's been doing 2 (admittedly now 1 a month) but still that's one more a month than Xbox one and over 4 months in looking at £50-60 worth of free games and xbox one gets, well yeah lot a lot free to play doesn't count I could have listed a fair few already on ps4 to the point you literally don't need to buy games which you could have done with the money you saved on buying a ps4 over an xbox one but hey ho competition is good just not when it's so one sided ;)

Your comment fully disregards that PS+ is a rental service for games they aren't free while Games with Gold actually gives games away for free. Just saying.

Ayeee they're stepping up.

I didn't know so many people were interested in Games with Gold. So many ps fans here talking about their rental program even when nobody said anything about it.

Hey Hicks.

I tried Hitman Absolution... it wasn't my thing, I did however enjoy the Zen 2 pinball tables I got. I even stuck around with BF3 for a while.

MajorGecko  +   122d ago

Remember the first rule of Sony Fanboyism. We might not love our console but we SHALL HATE YOURS.
bloodybutcher  +   121d ago
that applies to fanboyism in general, don't behave like it is just onesided retardation
ot: it's not as bad of a game as some ppl make it out to be, but it's the weakest of the series. it has few ok missions, but overall disappoints.shame really.

Hitman is awesome game. I will come back to it many time:)
rxl209  +   122d ago
games with gold is a complete disaster at this point
LogicStomper  +   121d ago
Giving subscribers free games is a disaster? Ok.

While I'll check out Hitman this month, the GWG program has got to step up.

The PS+ program has been great- even if they are rentals. Bioshock Infinite an Tomb Raider are really good, newer games t get have offered.

I'm really hoping that this year's E3 will be when they announce the GWG upgrade and expand it to the X1.

It is by far the worst Hitman (got bored with it after 3 or 4 hours) but it seems that MS is starting to improve their service by giving more recent games and that can only be a good thing if they keep it up.

I just find Funny that Hitman Absolution was so Awesome when it was free on ps+ but suddenly it's becoming a average to meh game one GWG.

Personally I loved the game (had on ps3) Contract mode was great and loved the way you replay the Level by trying new options.

it was considered "good" when it was free on psn because it was new at the time. it was still never as good as the older hitman games though.
