"March 2017 is here and now that both Microsoft and Sony have announced what games you’ll be getting for free via Games With Gold and PlayStation Plus it’s time to look at which is offering the better value for gamers."
Both offer some good games this month. Great for those who own multiple platforms!
Agreed. Both are offering a good mix of AAA and indie games in March.
Who cares? Remember people your paying for the ability to play multiplayer really. Have been since the original Xbox, or PS4 with sony. Sony just started the monthly game idea as a way to get people to pay, and signify that it was coming. They may try to offer better value, but at its core its to play multiplayer.
You do know , that Sony was doing monthly free games a while before the ps4 even existed?
Yes sir I am aware. Thats why I said "have been with the original xbox, or ps4 with sony." Started paying for multiplayer on the ps4, but on the ps3 it was free. They just did the free games to get people to pay. To give value, because why pay when its free? Then with that fact back then you could assume the ps4 was going to have a subscription.
LOL Sony started the free games after the whole system came back from the huge hack that happen on PSN, they did it to grab customers back, and its one of the best thing that ever happen on online services that comes with free, then xbox joined a long.
Wrong. PS Plus started in 2010. The hack was in 2011.
It started before that. Get your facts straight.
Hosting the infrastructure cost money. Because its online it should be free? Gimme a break.
GWG destroys PS+, if you're looking for past AAA experiences, as usual. PS+ wipes the floor with GWG, if you want indie experiences, this month, as usual. Same old, same old.
Tearaway Unfolded on PS4 and Earth Defense Force and Under Night on PS3 aren't indie games in case you missed that.
Lol. Sure. They also aren't AAA.
At this point, does it even really matter who's "free games" are better? I doubt people base their decision to buy a console based on what games Sony or MS decide to give away for free each month.
Yet no one has ever said that is the reason why they brought a console as its other factors as to their decision
Who cares its just a stupid article that tries to put gamers against each other by saying whos better.
Actually that isn't why I do the articles. I do them just for fun to see how the value and scores match up. As I always say in these articles none of it means anything. Each person has different tastes in games and might like one service better than the other regardless of what we say has the better value or scores for that month.
I just love how they keep calling these "free" lol TY Microsoft and Sony for brainwashing your users into forgetting what the word "free" even means. Even Nintendo's joining the party soon.
I've gotten downvoted for saying the same thing on here before, some N4G users just hate to face facts
