Are they paving the way to just getting rid of Games with Gold subs?

Its a pretty solid month. Even though I have most of those (physically) I will still get them all digitally.

It definitely seems like Microsoft is saving the big guns for Xbox Game Pass.

I don’t pay attention with the 2 free games on gold or plus for many years now. They’re too crappy and old for me to bother. Gamepass is where it’s at and if Sony can expand the PS Plus collection . Heck, they should have a premium version of the Plus Collection bundled with PS Now.

SpeedDemon74d ago

At this point they should just get rid of it, right now they're just giving away money to developers for games that their subscribers either already played years ago or games that few people have interest in, they should just take that money and give back to subscribers in a different way.

I doubt it. Sony has the same thing with PS+ and even though it's typically not great (on either platform) northern company will abolish it while the other still does it.

Christopher74d ago (Edited 74d ago )

Disagree. PS+ offerings have been much better since GamePass came along overall. It's not always good, but overall, much better. And I'm honestly questioning because I'm not up for GamePass, but I enjoy getting some good options with GWG, but it's just not there lately and they're pulling from ancient content elements that have been on sale many times for as low as $5. Whereas PS+ just got two games from 2020 and Bugsnax same date of release on PS5. I'm sure they'll disappoint, but I do feel like without having that "push PSNow" focus, they're getting more timely games in general that haven't been out and on sale for ages.

Wow. Breakdown. I have forgotten all about that game. It's basically a brawler FPS.

autobotdan75d ago

It was fun just very crazy controls

autobotdan75d ago (Edited 75d ago )

King of Fighters and Breakdown are winners! Well King of Fighters 13 on xbox 360 was very good. Breakdown was kinda decent just crazy controls

I already own KOF13 and Breakdown physical copies but its nice to own digital copies. Fun games

darthv7275d ago

I like grabbing the digital versions even though I already have them physically as well.

autobotdan74d ago

darthv72 i will always own the nice physical full color instruction booklets for both Breakdown and KOF13. Those instruction books I have are in very nice near new condition. Its always nice to look at the detail of Breakdown instruction booklet and the kof13 booklet page by page. Now its nice I wont even need to insert the discs

I thought little nightmares was a great game personally.

autobotdan75d ago

Finally some decent good free xbox360/original x games. Its been a while
