Xbox Live Games With Gold to Continue, No Plans Announced for Xbox One
Xbox 360 gamers will continue to benefit from free games on Xbox Live Gold.
Despite that there is no information on bringing the Games With Gold program to Xbox One, Microsoft has announced that it will continue for…well, for a while. The program was announced back at E3 2013 during Microsoft’s presser and allows Xbox Live Gold subscribers to download games for free.
As per a post on Xbox News Wire, “At E3 2013, we launched Games with Gold as a limited-time program to thank our Xbox Live Gold members. Within that short period of time, we’ve seen an overwhelming response, with more than 120 million hours played with Games with Gold titles. Today, as a part of the Week of Xbox Live, we’re excited to announce that we are making Games with Gold an ongoing benefit for Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox 360.
“Whether they are blockbuster AAA or popular arcade titles, Games with Gold continues to offer a diverse mix of games with two free Xbox 360 titles a month – yours to keep and at no additional cost. According to recent surveys, 97 percent of participating members have given their stamp of approval for Games with Gold, and we’re excited to continue bringing you great games every month as part of our ongoing commitment to providing great value on Xbox 360.”
The Games With Gold program has offered such titles as Crackdown, Assassin’s Creed II and is currently offering Halo 3 for free.
