Xbox’s Games With Gold Finally Competing on Even Ground with PlayStation Plus, and That’s Awesome

When Microsoft announced the Games With Gold program for Xbox 360 at E3 2013, it was just little short of ridiculous. Lately the offering has finally been evolving into something that can compete on a fairly even ground with PlayStation Plus, and that's awesome for everyone involved. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Lately I found Gold's X1's games offerings more interesting then PS+ PS4 games offerings.

Competition is good.

And PS Plus had a head start. That makes this even more impressive.
iamnsuperman  +   143d ago
That is irrelevant really. It isn't like Microsoft had no power amongst publishers before they introduced Games with Gold. Plus laid a groundwork which Microsoft soon released they had to follow since it worked so well (remember Microsoft originally tried to give away games for free for ever which they realised quickly that it doesn't win them favours amongst publishers). Time is irrelevant in this case

Lets just congratulate the service as it is without having to say it is more impressive because of X or Y (when X and Y has no logical place). It is good Microsoft has stepped their game up

How can you say Sony laid the groundwork if you also say Microsoft tried giving away free games first. But, correct me if I'm wrong, isn't Microsoft the only one actually giving games away. Sony's games disappear when your account expires don't they?

Because not only did Sony have sort out their side of the whole process but they had to coerce and convince publishers and developers to believe in this type of service since it was a brand new idea for consoles. This is a lot of work that can't be understated. It is a lot easier to convince publishers to get on board when someone else is doing the same thing already (especially for the last threeish years). This isn't mean devaluing what Microsoft has done but more about what LOGICWINS is talking about

To your other point. Only 360 games are kept for ever (unless they stopped that I am not sure). Exactly like how Plus works, on the Xbox One ones your subscription runs out you can't play the games (the ones you have actively purchase for no money). You just need to renew it to get back that access. The services are identical

PS+ gives games away on 3 different platforms, end of story. And btw if you do not keep your Xboxlive you loose those games.
dcbronco  +   143d ago
Utalkin you're wrong. As long as the games are played on the console the license is on they work. And the license can be transferred if you buy a new machine. Go ahead fanboys insert RRoD joke there.

I checked and you are right about Xbox One games. But 360 games are the only ones with either program that actually gives you anything. Xbox One and PlayStation plus are just rentals.

Giul_Xainx  +   143d ago
Hopefully they have the stamina to keep everything in check.

But with ps+ having an extra years head start to pioneer this type of service, it makes you wonder what Sony's next move is going to be. While games with gold is just starting to build up a library, ps+ already has a big one.

The length of time that a game is available for free matters not. It is wether or not the player is interested in playing the game.
guitarded77  +   143d ago
Oh yeah... well my wiener is bigger than your wiener... blah, blah, blah.

Both Plus and GWG are the best part of those stupid fees we pay for other services too.
Spotie  +   143d ago | Well said
Dcbronco makes a statement that's wrong and gets a well said.

Gwg has gotten better, that's for sure. But on par with Plus? That's debatable.
Biggest  +   143d ago
"And PS Plus had a head start. That makes this even more impressive."

What's more impressive is your ability to use this statement with your history of discounting these types of statements.

Games with Gold is not impressive. Having a month or two of solid games does not put it on even ground with PS Plus. It means that it has had a few months of solid games. Comparing Games with Gold to PS Plus only shows that PS Plus is the better service by a long shot.
sonarus  +   143d ago
Glad to see improvement but if we want to judge ps plus vs games with gold over the past few months then cool. If you are judging with the head start, its not even close because it is a large head start
fr0sty  +   143d ago
Having a head start doesn't matter as much when dealing with a new console, all you have to choose from is the software that has been released for it, and who among those developers is willing to cut a deal with you to let you give their game away.

Funny, one month of good offerings and all of the sudden GWG are the best thing ever, I'd say let's wait a couple more months before making this comparison
Boody-Bandit  +   142d ago
All those articles debating XBL vs PS+ over the years were always so heated. I've been saying for years and especially during this generation that hands down PS+ is the overall better value.

This article proves that was the right assessment since it is now being debating GWG is "trying" to level the playing field. For now though, this is way too early to be debated. MS has to do this for more than a month or 2 before we start discussing this. MS also has to expand their offerings with additional content, discounts, early beta access, and so many other categories PS+ off their subscribers.

So for now PS+ is still the better value. Less expensive and offer their subscribers a lot more than just some free games and discounts. So no, GWG is still not even close to PS+ and wont be until MS does this month after month and expands their offerings with more content than just a couple decent games.

@dcbronco

You only get to keep them as long as your are susbscribed to gold, similar to ps+

Of course you can use it on another console, since the subscription ties to your account not console.

When your gold sub expires, your games won't work or go to a trial mode.

One difference, Sony will only give games that have a 70 or higher Metacritic score. Microsoft doesn't really have standards as to what they give out and sometimes give some not so great games(like Crimson Dragon this month, which has gotten some pretty bad reviews).
mixolydian_id  +   143d ago
Metacritic scores?

Just who trolls the web to even leave reviews on there? Disappointed customers or happy customers?

It's about as useful as Rotten Tomatoes is for movies.

The critics slam a movie... but then the average joe enjoys it. But just who is right?

If there are a potential 200,000 gamers.... and 200 of them go online and post how they feel on N4G. Does that mean that the N4g opinions are the word of god?

I can't be bothered to get the calculator out, but we're looking at something like 0.001% of the gaming population.

Surely, you can't believe everything you see on the internet. There are more articles with fallacious information then there are gamers in the world.
admiralvic  +   143d ago
"Sony will only give games that have a 70 or higher Metacritic score. "

Like I keep pointing out, that remark was mostly in reference to what "great" and "high scoring" meant in SCEE advertisements. If you actually take the time to look into the games, you'll see that Sony has given away several <70 games over the years (some being REALLY low if you include day 1 titles like Chronovolt - 44 or Contrast - 59). To further prove this point, here are some <70 titles that were free with Plus:

Modnation Roadtrip - 62
Dynasty Warriors Next - 67
Malicious - 67
Doki Doki Universe - 66 (technically this score), 62 , 71
Poker Night 2 - 63
Germinator - 67
Zombie Tycoon 2 - 63
Labyrinth Legends - 68

I mean, I found 10 in the past year (Doki Doki is a current offering no less) by just looking at a list and going "I doubt that scored high."
Mr_Writer85  +   142d ago
@Adm

The metacritic score applies to the PS3 games only.

And that was for the first year only.
SpeedDemon  +   142d ago
@mixolydian I was going by the critic scores not the user scores. Sure I've enjoyed a few games that have gotten some bad reviews, but most of the games that I have played with bad scores deserve the bad critics rating.

@admiralvix at the time those games were given out they did have a 70 or higher score, apart from Doki-Doki which was given away along with the other 2 monthly games last month.
admiralvic  +   142d ago
@ Mr_Writer85

Now I know for a fact thats just not true. I know the SCEE site still mentioned the Metacritic stuff until the redesign (so around when the PS4 launched it changed or 6 months ago~). There is also the article below that also makes a strong case the other way.

@ SpeedDemon

"At the time those games were given out they did have a 70 or higher score"

Thats not actually true. Malicious actually got an article pointing out it didn't meet the Metacritic requirement when it was offered. http://n4g.com/news/1236009... You're also free to verify if anyone refuted the claim (I mean, it would be easy to disprove), yet people just talked about how stupid it's to go off Metacritic ratings (something I 100% agree with and thought about including in my original post). You can also see interesting things like...

"Blastoise + 473d ago
Lord of the rings war in the north was on 60 something and they put it on. Glad they did to be honest, I enjoyed it
#4Agree(21) | Disagree(1) "

You're also welcome to actually look at the Metacritic pages for these games and you'll see things like ModNation Racers (given away on 2/24/2014) has yet to get a review on Metacritic since 2012 or that Poker Night 2 was also not updated since it released for Plus. But choose to believe what you want to believe.
SpeedDemon  +   142d ago
@admiralvic After looking further into it, I guess you're right, tho they do seem to at least attempt to stand by it, having given 210(only counting NA) games away, I imagine it would be hard to find something that qualifies that they haven't already given away before.
PurpleDragon96  +   143d ago
The thing is, a lot of these "impressive" games have already appeared on PS+...

Free games are great on both ps plus and live.
Sevir  +   142d ago
A few months from now PS+ offering for PS4 will be better, there isn't much in the way of AAA releases on either platform. Both GWG and PS+ on next gen platforms have large been subjected to paltry indie releases, some impressive and addictive like Resogun and Strider, while others not so great. The program is in its infancy on PS4 and XBO the platform currently doesn't have large libraries of AAA games to do this with and right now, developers and publishers are having to recoup dev cost for what they released on PS4/XBO...

This year, in the fall I think we'll see AC4 Thief and TR:DF on PS+ along with Driveclub.

iamnsuperman  +   143d ago
I hope they never give it away. Microsoft needs to set a baseline for titles like Sony does with Plus (a game has to be over a certain score to be considered for the service). It is good to take risks with new titles (being unknown) but the stuff that has already proven to be bad needs to stay away from Games with Gold

@Ziggurcat

"mrpsychoticstalker' s opinion is wrong because it's factually incorrect. You don't get to keep the games anymore."

So much irony here. You accuse someone of being 'factually incorrect' yet, you make the same logical failure.

Here are the FACTS:

1) Xbox 360 GWG games are playable whether you are still subscribed or not.

2) Xbox One GWG games are ONLY playable IF you are still subscribed.

Now let's look at the arguments in turn.

mrpsychoticstalker:

"Being able to keep the games after ur subscription runs put is awesome"

This is factually correct if you are referring to Xbox 360, as you still KEEP your games upon expiry of your subscription. This is NOT correct for the Xbox One though.

Ziggurcat:

"...it's factually incorrect. You don't get to keep the games anymore."

This statement now is the opposite of the first. It is now factually correct for the Xbox One, but incorrect for the Xbox 360. If I may say so myself, they are BOTH incorrect. You both attempt to push your agenda's through manipulation of the 'facts'. One of you try to manipulate the situation to sound as if ALL GWG games are kept upon expiry of subscription. The other tries to manipulate the situation to sound as if NO GWG games are kept upon expiry.

Thank you for linking the article however, this does not support you argument, it undermines it. You argue that you do not keep your GWG games anymore, but using the very source you linked, it states:

"On Xbox 360, the Games with Gold program will work the same as it did before. Games you downloaded for free will remain on your account."

Now if you knew how Games With Gold worked before, you'd realise that Xbox 360 games are kept even upon expiry of your subscription.

I'm not against free games by any means, but we pay $50 or more a year, I would totally be ok with a big title once in a while like the PS3 used to (and still) gets..
other than that both services are great and worth it still imo

Giantbomb82  +   143d ago
Rentals, PS Plus, PS Now. Xbox 1 tries to be the all digital console of the future. And everyone hates it. Make up your fucking minds people. PS Plus was born out of the fact that Sony just wanted to charge to play online. PS plus was the BRIDGE that made it possible. A nice smooth transition. Plus only became good after the Hack in 2011, before that it was garbage and no one talked about it. I know, I was a early adopter in 2010. "infamous" was the first good solid full retail game they gave away. But it all led up to E3 2013; where it was announced that PS plus was required to play online, that was the ultimate goal of the service. I have a PS3, 360 and Xbox One. I think I've only bought 2 games from a store in the past year. So eventually it will all come back to the original Xbox one reveal. ALL Digital. Hilarious. Too ahead of the curve, I guess

The 2 things you are forgetting is how closed that system was with DRM and checkin's and no ability to trade disc based games.. in other words having the best of all worlds and not being forced into 1 system.

Also, We are living in 2014 not 2011 in which PlayStation plus has proven it self over Xbox live in so many way's and is worth the 49.99 price tag with all the games you get on 3 platforms each month. No one cares if it was talked about it in 2011.. when psn was a free service anymore cause people much prefer if they don't have the money to buy a game that month, they can download one out of the plus library. It's like listening to a child, " PlayStation plus is now a better service then xblive so I must take to N4G and cry my opinions all over " It's that simple.. or rent a game from now for a week for 5 bucks. Sorry you don't approve but there is about 9 million people on PS4, 81 million on PS3 and whatever vit's numbers are that do. Sad how mad you get when a service on another console is better.

I don't even have time to play all these free games...I wish there was other perks for those that don't always download the free games. Like an extra 10% off a digital game.

They only have about 200 games to go. Keep it up MS, you're getting closer.
