Xbox Games with Gold offers Crackdown & Dead Rising 2 in August

Like PlayStation Plus, Xbox Live Gold now offers subscribers free games. Last month, members were able to get Defense Grid and Assassin's Creed 2 gratis. What's on tap for this month?

Tomorrow, Gold members will be able to download the original Crackdown ($15 value). Then on August 15th, subscribers will be able to pick up both Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero ($35 value). Unlike PlayStation Plus, these games can be kept forever, regardless of an ongoing Gold subscription.

Games with Gold will offer new games on the 1st and 15th of every month.
