Microsoft’s Games with Gold Promotion is Coming to Xbox One in 2014

on November 14, 2013 7:16 PM

For the record, I love my Xbox 360 and one of the reasons why is the Games with Gold promotion where I can get two free games each month as long as I’m an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. For those getting an Xbox One, fear not for this promotion will carry over. While those who are remaining with their Xbox 360 (like me), Microsoft will extend the promotion as an “ongoing benefit” for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

According to Xbox Live director of programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, details on how Microsoft will implement Games with Gold on Xbox One are coming “later in 2014.”

Sony offers a similar service through its PlayStation Plus membership, giving subscribers free access to downloadable games and discounts on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. This promotion will be available on PlayStation 4 starting this week, giving subscribers free access to downloadable PS4 games Resogun and Contrast.
