Wow, well would you look at that? It looks like the July Games With Gold are actually worth playing, which is something that couldn’t have been said about the last few months of the program.

For once in what 3 years?

StrayaKNT1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

Well black flag is better than anything sony or Microsoft has released in three years lol

I'm obviously talking about the free games they released dude and yes black flag Is miles better than any free games sony or Microsoft have given us.

You must have REALLY short memory aussie.

No Assassins Creed game is better then Transistor.......

StrayaKNT1252d ago

What's transistor?

I hope this continues, but MS is continually doing the right thing as we move forward.

Great AAA games this holiday, public beta on all games, free maps/dlc with Halo 5, awesome Games with Gold and backwards compatiblity for free.

Then we got cross play, Direct X12 and dashboard overhaul with Windows 10 on Xbox One.

I have never seen MS work harder. Love it!!!

Not better than Resogun, Don't Starve, Resogun, The Binding of Issac, Ground Zeroes etc.

You guys are not looking at the whole picture. In 2 year since the free game for Gold started, MS already gave away these freebies across the entire Xbox platforms with the added bonus of Xbox 360 games that are actually free and not tie to your Gold account once downloaded and now most of these titles will most likely be BC as well will only give more value and incentive to those X360 gamers that had been collecting these free x360 games to migrate over to the XB1. Just look at the list below, does PS plus have anything that remotely matches that for the last 2 years in terms of quality?

Notable Free Gold games:
Gears of War 3
Plants vs. Zombies
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Just Cause 2
Massive Chalice
Mafia II
CastleStorm: Definitive Edition
Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel
Gears of War: Judgment
BioShock Infinite
Rayman Legends
Tomb Raider
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die
Red Faction: Guerrilla
Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise
Darksiders II
Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Halo: Reach
Crimson Dragon
Super Streetfighter IV Arcade Edition
Dark Souls
Saints Row: The Third
Hitman: Absolution
Civilization Revolution
Toy Soliders: Cold War
Dead Island
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
Sleeping Dogs
Gears of War
Halo 3
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas
Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
Dead Rising 2
Assassin's Creed II
Fable III

Lol funny article. There's literally nothing on this list I would play this month.
On the other hand Rocket League releases today on PS+ which might be one of the best games of 2015. The GWG lineup doesn't come close to that with it's 2-4 year old games.

Impressive! Definitely a nice line up!

blackblades1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

Eh half the games already came to playstation in general not this time. I can say half the games people haven't even played and they bs on what we get. Black flag ain't better then spelunky or binding of issac why because I have more fun with small games then most big games.

AC4 is good for one reason for sure.

Multiplayer...true AC multiplayer, not that stuff in Unity that isn't fun to play.

Nick_The_Slick1252d ago

Yes, for once...

Your bs just made me roll my eyes so hard.

NeoGamer2321252d ago

So you have sale-for-sale and free-game-for-free-game compared over the past three years?

There are is a sale every week on XB stuff and same with sony. 90% of the sales don't even show up on this site.

medman1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

There is a first time for everything. The psplus offerings have been unimpressive the last couple of months, in my opinion. But overall, it's still no contest, psplus has been better...and I have a feeling Sony will release quite a few gems this fall for psplus.

Not really, just AC Black Flag.

TriangleOffense1252d ago

Im still yet to play it and this price fits so illl take it over the plus lineup this month

Rookie_Monster1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

No doubt, a retail XB1 game along with one of the crown jewel of the X360 in Gears 3 that will also be BC with X1 is a great one two punch. If MS continue with this strategy of adding a Retail xb1 game and a AAA x360 game every month from now on, I forsee MS winning many months in terms of value giving to its Gold members.

StrayaKNT1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

They don't need free monthly games, unlike their competitors Microsoft have alot of amazing mp games to give you great value imo

Rookie_Monster1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

True and well said, my man.

Also, you might as well add Gigantic, Rare Replay, Gears HD, Fable Legends, Forza 6, Halo 5, Tomb Raider to the list as well as all those remaining games for 2015 on XB1 will have MP. The fact that BC that will be release this Fall grants mp session against x360 players is just cherry on top of the icing.

Ocsta1252d ago

Aww you guys are so cute together :)
OT: Good lineup for once.

Mrveryodd1252d ago

Black flag is one of the better games of played in years ... Still playing it .

JeffGUNZ1252d ago

IMO the best Assassins Creed. The ending, oh man, if it doesn't tear at your heart strings, you're not human.
