Way to compete with PS+ Microsoft...

It appears that the Halo 3 and AC2 announcements were meant to emphasize that H3 and AC2 are going to be two of the "highlights" of the freebie service, meaning that gamers are gonna get mostly junk.

On the other hand, on PS+ within the last month I downloaded Sleeping Dogs, U: Golden Abyss, DE: Human Revolution, XCOM, and LBP Karting (and I missed several other games).

It was done just to have a talking point over PS+. Nothing more.

MajorLazer1939d ago

I downloaded Demon's Souls, Uncharted 3, XCOM, KoA: Reckoning and ICO and Shadow of the Colossus HD collection and that was just the last month :D I love PS+ and Gold lacks so much compared to it

Well done to all of you. Now go troll elsewhere. This topic is about the first free game on their promo.

Que more trolling to commence.

allready have this game, but its fairly decent

zeal0us1939d ago

So its trolling just because they compared what they get on PS+ to what MS is offering?

falviousuk1939d ago

yes it is, as this article is nothing to do with PS+

But yet again here we have sony trolls going through posts that they are not interested in just to troll.

This whole site is polluted with trolls, that do nothing all day except for spout their fanboy crap.

Comparing is not trolling at all. If we couldn't compare anything, then what would be the point? Sony gets better with competition with Microsoft and Vice Versa. It benefits both companies when people compare them.

lol this free game promo will end as soon as xbox one launches... "As a gesture of thanks to the millions of Xbox fans around the world for their passion and loyalty, Xbox announced that every Xbox Live Gold subscriber will receive two free Xbox 360 games per month until the release of Xbox One, including the pair of popular titles: “Halo 3” and “Assassin’s Creed II.” And to celebrate E3 in the month of June, Xbox Live Gold members will receive a free download of “Fable III.”
