Xbox Live members should be getting better games imo

NYC_Gamer817d ago (Edited 817d ago )

That would be really expensive for MS to pay publishers for the right of 360 owners to download and keep the game...That's why GwG on X1 needs to be like PS+ with rentals of new software every month.

Kayant817d ago (Edited 817d ago )

As I have always said I wished MS copied the IGC model it would really make me consider paying for gold again because I know the titles will be better.

Outsider-G817d ago

Yeah true. They should go the rental route.

CJDUNCAN817d ago

don't go the rental route. without xbox gold, the games we get are still ours. going the rental route that's not the case anymore.

sure let's us all play Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 for the 700th time when we don't have Gold! /s

Better than this?

These games are both excellent!

GarrusVakarian817d ago (Edited 817d ago )

What? This is probably the best month of the service since it started, imo.


Yeah yeahhh, we know, it's not as good as 'that other similar service'. But this service has gotten better and better each month. You can' deny that.

Outsider-G817d ago

My fault. It's pretty good. I wasn't aware that you get to keep the game which is awesome.

Freeball817d ago

Yes, good month for GwG, but they need to stop responding and get proactive in winning back gamers. Instead of trying to match PS Plus (which they haven't yet, but getting closer), beat it for a few months and get people to notice.

badz149817d ago


Getting closer? LOL

oakshin817d ago

its got better i agree but thats becuz every month 360 games get older and older im guessing xbox is at a crossroads with how there going to do this on xb1

Good games.

from the beach817d ago

Quick look at Metacritic would suggest these are very good games - I haven't played either but I'll check them out.

MS is doing it right.

amazinglover817d ago

Dust is a very good game differently worth the try and Saints Row 3 is in many ways a better game then Saints 4 so for those who haven't played it your in for a real treat. I agree with some the games selection isn't the best but who cares since they are some what free since gold is required which does cost money.

TXIDarkAvenger817d ago

These are actually the best games MS has put out for free so far.

BakPAin817d ago

I already have Dust. Will give SRThird a go. Not complaining at all, Free is Free. Here take it, do you want one? Hey you over there and you over there eating that burger you want a free game?

I have not played either of these games, so getting to play them for free is awesome. So far only 2 out of 28 have been games that I already owned.

Wikkid666817d ago

Saints Row 3 is awesome!

n4gamingm817d ago

Hells yes saints row the third.👏

sage12817d ago

I'm definitely interested in Dust, but this is another disappointing month. Still no X1 games with gold.. great

NYC_Gamer817d ago

That is most likely an announcement saved for E3

sak500817d ago

When did you start getting 360 games for free? Think about it and also see i'ts just been few months and people are still buying the launch titles albeit at discounted rates. It's not that there are 100s of titles already out there that they can offer something for free.

Not that i wouldn't x1 games free as well but think logically. I would even prefer rental for x1.

maniacmayhem817d ago

Pretty cool, I have never played Dust but it looks fantastic and I heard Saints 3 was bat sh*t insane. I'll check that out too.
