So since the launch of Games with Gold back in July, Microsoft has given away 20 FREE GAMES! Ten retail games and ten are Xbox Live Arcade Games. But  can it really rival Playstation Plus?

Xbox Live Gold members pay a fee of £40 per year and are given the chance to download just two free titles a month, with one game available from the 1st to the 15th of each month, and the second game available from the 16th onwards exclusively with Xbox Live Gold. But make sure you don’t miss out, as they’re only available to download for a short space of time according to the Official Xbox site here.

Games-With-Gold-ListNot to be outdone by Sony’s Playstation Plus who give games away games for the PS4, PS3 and VITA each month, Microsoft have stated that by popular demand and based on the success of Games with Gold not only will it continue on Xbox 360 but they have also confirmed that Xbox Live Gold members will get access to free games on Xbox One (more details coming later in 2014).

Sot there you have it, since July 2013 Microsoft have given away a total of 20 games and Sony have given away an incredible 54 Games for the same period.

Microsoft’s list is pretty small compared to Sony’s Playstation Plus service which also costs £40 per year but Sony have given away a total of 54 games, 5 PS4 Games, 29 PS3 Games and 20 PS Vita Games in the same period since July while Microsoft have only given away just 20 games for the Xbox360 and nothing for the Xbox Oe.

To Date Playstation Plus owners have received an incredible  117 FREE Games since it launch to date (see here), yet it costs the same price as Xbox Gold.

To me at present Playstation Plus Wins Hands Down.
