“Microsoft gives the impression that Games with Gold is an obligation that they need to meet in order to compete with Sony.” If Sony didn’t do Instant Game Collection first and get success with it, I honestly don’t think Microsoft would have even considered Games With Gold. This is a completely reactionary program.
Of course it’s reactionary. They’re holding off providing it for the Xbone as long as they possibly can. If they had any willingness to provide this much value to their consumers, they not only would’ve done it first, but they would’ve at least been offering a much better lineup than they are doing. They’re currently dragging their heels towards providing value.
Games with Gold is a joke compared to PS+. I know that they like to keep the games forever, but there’s no point on owning old-ass games not worth keeping after beating them. I prefer to play recent games that i didn’t have the chance to play, or games I would like to replay for free. Moreover, i’ve played a lot of games, and I keep downloading more games and deleting the games i’ve platinumed already I love PS+. Microsoft better make GwG more competitive and bring it to Xbone. Start with Ryse!
There really isn’t a reason to compare at this time. Maybe give Games For Gold some time and then compare. The one thing that Games with Gold and PS+ both have in common, is that you have to pay for them.
If you want to know whats coming in April for PlayStation Plus subscribers, look no further. Sony has released the list for April’s Instant Games collection. They are as follows: Batman: Arkham City (PS3) Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (PS3) Mercenary Kings (PS4) Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark (PS3) Velocity Ultra (PS Vita).
Microsoft Corp. seems to have thrown Twitter users a bone. Before Tuesday’s press conference, Microsoft had been pushing around a few hashtags for Twitters users to Tweet with. The tag “#Xboxmemories” was one of the big ones at the event with users pushing out tens of new Tweets by the second.
Sony has confirmed the PlayStation Plus offerings for April. On the European end, as previously rumored, subscribers will have access to the following games come April 2: Mercenary Kings, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, Sly Cooper Thieves in Time (Cross Buy), Hotline Miami (Cross buy) and MotoGP 13.
