Twinfinite reviews the free game lineups from Sony's PS Plus and Microsoft's Games with Gold to determine which service offered the better package in June.
Okay normally GWG beats PS+, imo, with all the PS+ indie crap, but not this month! This is a beautiful return to form for Sony. XCom 2? Ghost Recon Future Soldier? Awesome.
For about a year PSPLUS has consistently dominated the "free games" battle. Sony has been giving one major AAA just about every month since then...
Um Sony has been outdoing Xbox on this front for like a year straight now. Might want to go back and look at the past 12 months for each if you think GWG has been better.
Your bragging when 2 PS games you get in June, I got a year ago with gold!
@iplay1up2 And you guys brag about last gen games that PS+ got several years ago. It's "you're" btw.
@iplay And psplus had Metal Gear for free way before gwg. Who cares about that?
Indie crap ? Are you stuck in 2016 ?
Another clueless person.
Maybe do some background reading before you post miss-informed crap like that next time. As for answering the article's question - both offerings are mediocre. GWG-5/10, PSplus- 6/10. I guess we had a good run the past year so a meh month can be forgiven?
Wrong, wrong and wrong.
You obviously havent turned on a PS4 in years
Normally GWG beats PS+? Have you been under a rock for the last year?
And GWG didn't had a single indie game, right?
He surely thinks indies on xbox are an exception? Smh..m
One has games and the other has a package of junk for a free to play game. So I'm going to go with games.
Xcom 2 and Trial Fusions are way to go.
I'd also like to point out that PS+ actually has a lot of free bonus stuff for F2P games that doesn't count as a "monthly game" I have gotten stuff for Neverwinter, STO, DCU Online, Warframe, Planetside, Blacklight Retribution and others I'm sure but the games I listed are games I remember taking advantage of the free offers on.
Yep. Pretty much every time a free to play game hits PSN there is a free pack of some sort for PS+ members. Sony does this as a bonus.
Actually there are currently 4 packages like that available for PS plus subscribers this month alone.
I don’t get it why there so many dislike on YouTube. Xcom 2 is great game. Sure, the game is turn base game and some people not big fan of it, but this month is not garbage. It’s a solid month.
I remember PS Plus user got King's Quest Chapter 1 last year, it eventually became free for all consoles/PC. where was the outrage?? Never existed unless it's Xbox related news.
I'm not exactly sure the point your trying to make. If PS+ got it while it cost money then they still gave away something of value.
Not true. For one it was 2015, not last year, and there was definitely disappointment over PS+ the month of Kings Quest. I even called it an insult http://n4g.com/news/1827247... The YouTube announcement had 11k thumbs down. PSBlog had many complaints.
Sony wins, flawless victory. Xcom 2 I never played so excited to try that and trials fusions is something I've always been meaning to purchase at some point as it looks like a lot of fun. Ghost Recon Future Soldier is a huge bonus too, I loved that game so looking forward to getting some online games going with the boosted playerbase.
Is this some sort of competition now?
Always has been and the sad part is people actually care which month is better instead of just enjoying free stuff, having fun and going about your day, everything becomes a petty console war now.
This is what I had been saying. Everything is a competition now between Somy, MS, and Nintendo. What’s worse, we have “gaming” media like Twinfinite openly advocate these sort of things just to get comments on their articles. What a shame.
GWG has an advantage that you get 4 games to play on one console ( for single console owners. Sonic all stars and lego could be fun. But smite....i have no interest in a f2p game. Terrible addition. On ps4 xcom 2 is fantastic, probably better than any GWG game i have installed in years. So ps4 is clearly the better offering.
Don’t sleep on Smite I have a PS4 and I still play that game more than anything. It’s a great game
None. It's not ALWAYS a competition.
what does this blogger mean by „win“? last time i checked they are not competing anymore. the xoxbox is not targeted at gamers anymore. they are after sellings sports and tv licenses in america. the xoxbox just so happens to also play games. not much of a contender in my book. only in the minds of bloggers that got nothing to write about there are 3 competitors. while in reality there is just 1 catering the gamer market. switchtendo is after nongamers and the xoxbox is after the living room.
