I believe there was already talk about Games with Gold going the same route of PS Plus.. I remember in an interview Phil Spencer mentioned it because he said that would be the only way Games with Gold will get quality games.
Man I have both ps plus and XBL, and they are both different for me coz xbox you get to have them even after you're not a gold member anymore, but the games on ps plus are great too for sure, just wish they bring something for XBone already... Ps4 is doing it, xbox need to catch up.
Really, these are great offerings. If you have Xbox Live Gold, these two games are great. There are really two problems here: 1. PS+ is still better. Dust and SR3 are awesome games that anyone should play and it shows that Games For Gold is improving. However, Instant Game Collection is still a much better value. 2. As with all of the other Games for Gold offerings, it's not enough of a selection. If you already own either of these games, that makes this month's value much less impressive.
Quality of games aside (PS+ is better in my view)I think being able to keep the games is what is keeping games with gold from having brand new just released games like PS+. Would like to hear from a dev on what the get from MS or Sony to have there game as part of this service.
Haven't played Dust but I thought SR3 was pretty bad when i tried it when it was offered on PS+ I don't think they understand that the dudebro dick jokes stop being funny when that's all that happens in the game
I've seen the list of PS+ games at launch and they weren't anything to be excited about. It took over a year for a proper title to be released on there which was Tomb Raider Underworld. Before that, it was all games from decades ago. GwG will get better over time. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...
This (for me) is the lamest month so far. Played and completed SR3 a long time ago and Dust isn't my type of game.
Bought Dust when it was on sale for i think 400 points and Saints Row the 3rd is a bargain bin title that most everyone has played. June should be interesting as both companies will have the spotlight on them at E3 so both will probably bring some big guns, at least I'm hoping.
