Games With Gold Set To Carry On After The New Year
Great news for 360 gamers who can not afford the switch to next-gen just yet, as the Games with Gold is set to carry on after the new year.
Originally only set to run until the end of the December, Microsoft have seen the 120 million hours that gamers have put into the promotion and have seen fit to carry it on into next year.
Via the XboxWire website Microsoft said,
“we’re excited to announce that we are making Games with Gold an ongoing benefit for Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox 360.”
“Whether they are blockbuster AAA or popular arcade titles, Games with Gold continues to offer a diverse mix of games with two free Xbox 360 titles a month – yours to keep and at no additional cost. According to recent surveys, 97 percent of participating members have given their stamp of approval for Games with Gold, and we’re excited to continue bringing you great games every month as part of our ongoing commitment to providing great value on Xbox 360.”
This can only please people who have seen the service as a chance to try out a few games they have missed out on (me included).
At the moment Halo 3 is free to download for gold members, so be sure to check that out if the game is not in your collection.
Be sure to come back to the site near the 1st and 16th of each month and I will be sure to let you know what free game is on the way.
