Must of missed it. Are MS creating similar service?


He is referring to Games for Gold of course.

I don't think he was trying to say anything more than MS seems to have been moved to offer a game give away program as well.

Microsoft have fairly recently begun giving games away to Gold Members. However it only happened shortly after Sony introduced PS+ and began giving away games to the members.

GwG was announced at E3 2013 and started in July 2013.

PS+ and IGC were announced/launched at E3 2010

 

Not quite "shortly after" :p

Fair enough, I lose track of time when I don't follow gaming as close as I used to. Either way I doubt microsoft would have done this if Sony didn't.

Ahh. I thought they were talking about creating an actual subscription service like PS+

Would that not be Xbox Live Gold membership?

Is this gifting of games from MS going to continue on or is it going to cease in the near future? I hope it keeps going, and the content improves; it would motivate me to get a gold sub.

No idea, my guess is it'll continue. Especially while Sony are doing it.

MS confirmed it would continue on the 360. They also said that they would announce the program for the X1 sometime this year.

EU side has updated. Now I just queue the downloads and wait :D

 

Too bad the Bioshock Infinite season pass didn't get a discount. The Last Light one is practically free at the discounted price.

Just installed Metro Last Light yesterday and man what a let down. I hoped it would inherit the good parts from 2033 fixing the annoyances but it's all exactly the same, bugs and heavy enemy scripting included.
