Phil Spencer: Games with Gold will feel 'more true' to what consumers want in the future

Games with Gold, a program that offers two free games a month to Xbox Live Gold subscribers, will become something "more true" to what consumers want from the program, according to Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer.

"That said, I have been sitting down, monthly now, with that team — some of the earlier months were already programmed — and playing a more active role in picking franchises that show up in Games with Gold, and I think you'll see at least something that feels, at least, more true to what I think Games with Gold should look like with the constraints that are there," Spencer said.

Better games coming...

I think they should give more than just films and Tv Shows would be really cool as well.

Dragon Ball Z Season One is free on Xbox Video.

Damn...I never knew that...if they don't advertise it how I'm I suppose to know.

No_Limit1687d ago

With all the complaints with Ads on Live, how do people not know is literally in their face. /S

KonsoruMasuta1687d ago

They do advertise it. It's been on the dashboard for a couple of days now.

Also some anime is free for gold members.

I also saw 'state of emergency' for free for being a gold member.

They give out free random stuff for gold members now which they didn't do in the early days of the 360.

But I rather have games for free.

If MS can give PS plus calibur games, I'd be a gold member for life.

I've been a LIVE subscriber since 2004, and honestly, I specifically pay for the multiplayer. Anything else that they add is cool with me (i.e. most of the things people whine about being behind a paywall). However, I really can't bring myself to complain about a free game, regardless of how old it is. PS+ definitely has a better selection, but again, my $50 (give or take) has always been primarily to play online.

Wow 50$ to just play online... What's that like? Coming from a place where I don't pay just to play online, I would be curious to know... I could study this.

Well, it'll be $100 a year when I get a PS4. Will you continue judging me from your lofty throne at that point or will you keep your snarky comments to yourself?

They do free movie weekends to every now and then.

Volkama1687d ago

They do free movie weekends and things quite often, I don't think you even need Gold for those.

And they manage to excel themselves in picking terrible films, it makes the Games with Gold selection look top drawer.

I swear Microsoft said games with gold was supposed to start later this year for xbox one. why did he decided not to comment about when gwg is coming to the xbox one?

DEEBO1687d ago

Where is the benefit for gamers with gold on the xbox one? i sign up on new years eve and i just got another 12 months from amazon for 39.99 but other then using netflix and multiplayer online gamers with gold hasn't done anything on the xbox one.

PlayStation plus on the other hand is really paying off for me.every month i get one game for ps4,two for the vita and three for the ps3 so yeah MS all the talking is going in one ear out promise the moon but all you give is 99 cent moon pies.

Pillsbury11687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

It's hard to imagine life now not getting new free games all the time.

Ps... Mmmmm mooonnn piieeee...
