This goes both ways ( no pun intended ) for Games With Gold and PS+ why? I've seen gamers on here and other websites say "well I'll just wait and see if the new games will show up on GWG or PS+" that says a good amount of people/gamers are starting to not want to buy a game Triple a/indie.


Also this site or article says that it's bad that gamers get a discount and it's even worse for Microsoft. Fool.com? where do they find these sites.

So the article mentions that MS aren't giving away free brand new triple-A titles on the X1, yet forgets to mention that the PS4 is the same boat...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Instant_Game_Collection_games_(PAL_region)#PlayStation_4

They're all arcade or indie games... The article also mentions how Sony offered six games last month, they offered:

Lone Survivor
NBA 2K14
PixelJunk Shooter
Trine 2
Surge Deluxe

PixelJunk Shooter and Lone Survivor were cross-platform games, it's the same game but on a different platform. They have also given away Far Cry 3 back in Sept. 2013.

Also, why should MS follow what Sony is doing with PS Now when it is seriously overpriced. There is no way they will be able to offer a service at an amazing price when you could get a used copy of a game for a small price and return it to get your money back.

This article is definitely written by a fool.

I buy less games now with GWG and PS+,I am getting around 8 free games a month and have built such a huge backlog that I don't have the time to play them except a few AAA titles I will pick up but if MS releases a arcade type game I will not buy it because it will be free one day like Dead Light,Dust,Charlie Murder,Block Theater etc.but what MS is banking on is more live users which is straight profit for MS and is the main reason Sony did the same thing.
