For a while now, Sony has offered PlayStation Plus subscribers several free games at the beginning of each month as an incentive to sell PlayStation Plus subscriptions. The games are totally free and you keep them for as long as you subscribe to the service. This feature has been greatly enjoyed by gamers as the games they offer tend to be fairly new and actually great games like Uncharted 3, Tomb Raider, inFAMOUS 2 and many more.
In an effort to compete, Microsoft started their Games With Gold feature which gives gamers two free games every month which is theirs forever whether they keep subscribing or not. Unfortunately for Microsoft the feature has not been popular with gamers as unlike PS+ you only get two games and, most importantly, the game they games they’ve offered so far have all been years old, meaning most gamers have played them already. Games like Civilization Revolution, Gears of War and Halo 3 are all great games but we played them years ago.
