    Default Microsoft Preparing Free Xbox Live?

    A day after the blockbuster news, first reported by Giant Bomb, that Microsoft was orchestrating a full retreat from their original plans to limit user access to content and require daily connectivity to their servers to play games, EGM has learned from a source that the company is now contemplating additional moves to create parity with Sony’s PlayStation 4.

    One of these considerations—which the source said is being discussed—is to bundle the Xbox One with a free period of Xbox Live Gold and provide other incentives that, in light of Sony’s announcement that they will begin charging for online multiplayer, would bridge the price difference between the two consoles. “The cost [of Xbox One] will be comparable to PlayStation 4 after all the multiplayer costs are factored in,” the source indicated.

    Never going to happen. These were the same guys saying that used games was costing them to lose revenue.

    Microsoft details its Games With Gold initiative

    Microsoft has detailed its two-free-games-a-month initiative for Xbox Live Gold members by clarifying that a new title will be added on the 1st and 16th of every month.

    Only one game will be available at a time, but once you download a title it will stay connected to your account as a past purchase, meaning it will be retrievable at a later date should you decide to delete it.

    "Each specially selected, fan-favorite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what," noted Microsoft on its official site.

    The current selection is Fable 3, which will be removed at the end of the month when either Halo 3 or Assassin's Creed 2 will take its place.
    sounds good. all for this

    lol MS plan to try bridging the price gap? They have $100 to make up as it is, free live will only save $60 for the moment, so call it $450 vs $500, how they going to make up that $50?

    Plus those games MS giving free seem so old, and they call PS+ out for giving old games free that came out the year before. Those offerings look over 3 years old.
