Games With Gold announces June's free games for Xbox One and 360

Xbox One users will get four games as a birthday present.

20

Games with Gold is turning three next month, and to celebrate, Microsoft is offering Xbox One gamers a rather rich reward: Two games designed for the console and two more for the 360 that are backward compatible.

As with all GWG titles, each title has limited availability:

The four titles are worth about $95 at retail. And, of course, you need to be an Xbox Live Gold member.

This month, GWG offered Defense Grid 2, Peggle, Grid 2 and Costume Quest 2.

        Meanwhile PlayStation is killing it with their Instant Game Library next month: Uncharted 4, DOOM, Dark Souls 3, Overwatch, and Knack!

          I think you mean "generic indie 2d space shooter no one has ever heard of" and "generic indie 2d sidescroller no one has ever heard of"

          I don't think I'm going to re-subscribe to PS+ unless they get their shit together.

            The quality of the PS+ games has certainly dropped off, but it's still a pretty damned good deal don't you think? It's like 40 bucks/year if you look for sales on 12mo. subscription cards.

              I don't think they have released a single thing in the last year that I was interested in. It was pretty good at first, but I'll probably let my sub lapse until they release something worth re-subscribing for.

            this. i'll probably keep my xbox gold but ps+ just isn't worth it.

            Im definitely not resubscribing to ps+ when mine runs out in 2 months. Ive played like 3 games from their free list in the last year and only one of them more than a couple hours. (rocket league)

              Yeah the only one that I really enjoyed was counterspy, which was awesome.

              I've been enjoying God of War remastered, though I probably won't finish it since the opening scene is the best anyway.

          Knack? Fuck Yeah!

            I would be pretty stoked if they released Knack, but it's not a generic indie sidescroller so there's no chance that will happen.

                I know it got bad reviews, but it looks like it might be fun to play for a little while, at least.

        Huh? It's not their best month but Xbox Gold is one of the best gaming deals around period.

          It's been incredibly mediocre for the past few months IMO, and this is perhaps the worst.

            You didn't like Sunset Overdrive?

              I loved it when I bought it for $16 months before it was available on Xbox Live.

                That's how the deal works dude - you either buy a game or wait longer for it to maybe show up for free (with an XLB sub). Microsoft isn't going to apologise because you already own something.

            What's wrong with X-Com? It is fucking awesome.

            Sunset overdrive is the best exclusive they had and they made it free. I seriously love that game.

            4 games a month that are pretty damn awesome. I get a year of xbox live for about 35 and it comes with 48 games over the year. 48 games. Thats a steal.

              They are all super old, shitty games 99% of the time. It's not a steal at all. And $35 is a rare exception.

                Rare as in every other month if you pay attention on slickdeals. Sometimes it drops to $32.

                You are clearly hating or just have not looked at the games. No not every game is going to be AAA or a highly rated game. But you can get Live for $50 a year or even cheaper if you are a deal hound. What do you expect here? https://www.tekrevue.com/complete-xbox-games-with-gold-list-details/

                That's a damn good deal in anybodies book. To top it off you get some steep discounts on games along with the free stuff as well.
