A bit better, but Games with Gold still has a long way to go.
@Below I meant that Games with Gold is getting better, not that this month's games were better than last month

Concertoine2488d ago

I thought sleeping dogs last month was miles better. Sure its old but at least its a great game and a bit of a hidden gem.
I can get crappy dead island for 6.99 if i was some kind of masochist.

GarrusVakarian2488d ago (Edited 2488d ago )

Agreed, Sleeping Dogs is the best game to be included with GWG yet, in my opinion.

But GWG still doesn't compare to PS plus, not even slightly. I can get Metro: Last Light, Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2 (to name a few) right now on PS3.

MS need to step their game up, it should at least have been Dead Island: Riptide.

TheBrit2488d ago

Yeah you can get "crappy dead island for 6.99' or, you can get it for free.

FamilyGuy2488d ago (Edited 2488d ago )

At least their giving out a game that wasn't on PS+ this time. PS+ got Sleeping Dogs a year ago, seeing them release the same titles PS+ had just makes PS+ look better. This time it might not be as good a game but at least it's not a reminder of how far behind GwG is in comparison to the PS+ instant games collection.

@TheBrit above
I personally wouldn't even download Dead Island for free. I know that I'd never play it so why bother. Sometimes even a free game isn't worth it, it's just clutter.

Concertoine2488d ago

The point is, if i had wanted this game i wouldve fetches it from the bargain bin its been in since launch. Gears of War, Halo 3, Sleeping Dogs, etc may have been cheap games, but at least they were positively received by critics.

kreate2488d ago

Man.. Between PS plus and games for gold.

I'm totally loving it...

Keep it coming...

@ FamilyGuy

Dead Island hasn't been on PS+ yet as a freebie, but I got the Game Of The Year edition through PS+ for $5.

$5 for the game and extra content beats the standard version being free on Xbox.

Dead Island was a game I really enjoyed. I recommend it for those who haven't gotten the chance to play it yet. Plus it's free!

Irishguy952488d ago

Agree, Toy soldiers is also one of the best XBL indie games.

However, even at this XBL still has a ways to go before it catches up with PSN. I got Bioshock infinite and Metro Last light a few days ago, along with 2 Vita games and a Ps4 game soon

Bolts-N-Rays11092488d ago

I'll be benefiting from the great games offered by PS+ soon.

Lord_Sloth2488d ago

Didn't they cut the servers?

LogicStomper2488d ago

I myself haven't tried it. Never got into the dead rising that was free a while back so here's hoping this one's good.

Master-H2488d ago

Nothing free for the bone, M$?

OC_MurphysLaw2488d ago

rumors are April that program will kick off. For now though nada.

KonsoruMasuta2488d ago (Edited 2488d ago )

I was expecting better. This is disappointing.

This months' was probably the best one. I already own Sleeping Dogs (which was a terrific game) but I never played LC: GOL (Also a terrific game).

Ah well, at least I have PS+ to look forward to.

InMyOpinion2488d ago (Edited 2488d ago )

I bought Sleeping Dogs when it was on sale during December. They could have told me that they would give it away for free only days later...

Solid game though.

BattleTorn2488d ago

PS+ has been SPOILING me!! It's actually kept me from buying Tomb Raider DE new ;D

And February has even more to offer, woo hoo!

InMyOpinion2488d ago

At least give us Dead Island Riptide. Damn cheapskates. This crap is part of why I will be going from having been a very pleased Xbox & Xbox 360 owner to definitely swapping to a PS4.

UKRsoldier2488d ago

So because you don't like a FREE game that is being given out as a bonus with your subscription, you're calling them cheap? Lol.
