By now, you should have heard that Microsoft has just announced the Games with Gold September list for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Those who were expecting a big retail game though are going to be disappointed again as Microsoft has actually only offered one new Xbox One game for September.
We spoke about this in a previous report here, with Microsoft not able to offer the two games on Xbox One as they originally promised a few months ago when the Games with Gold program extended to Xbox One.
The reality is though that Xbox One gamers will only be getting Super Time Force this month since Crimson Dragon, the game that was offered last month is staying for one more month.
On Xbox 360, gamers are going to be getting Monaco and Halo Reach so in reality Xbox 360 owners are getting the sweeter deal than Xbox One. It’s definitely not as good as last month in which Dishonored was offered though, so are you hoping for bigger and better things from Microsoft for October?
PS Plus subscribers are actually in the same boat with constant requests for to Sony offer a full retail game but we have a feeling that the wait may go on until 2015.
The first retail game that will come on PS Plus is looking like Driveclub and when this arrives, it could be the time for when Microsoft will follow suit – after all they love matching what Sony offers to stay competitive – 3D Blu-Ray support and now DLNA as prime examples.
Looking ahead, what do you see Microsoft doing for the Games with Gold October 2014 list? Obviously they won’t be able to pull the same trick twice with just one game so two will be coming.
The problem is that there are not enough Xbox One games for Microsoft to justify handing out for free, which is why they made the decision to only offer Super Time Force for September.
If you can predict the two games already, do you think that they will be two more Indie games? Let us know what you think Microsoft will do, knowing that they could only offer one game for September.
Can you admit to feeling disappointed with the September update? What would you like to see for October?
