What is the reason why xbox live is now giving out 2 free games for the year?

Does anyone know what other games will be given next month?

1. MS has said it's a thank you to those who have XBL Gold.

2. It's more than "2 free games for the year". It's actually 2 free games each month till the end of the year.

3. The free games are usually announced via Major Nelson's blog.

Irregardless, for all intensive purposes I could care less if you take me for granite. If given free reign, I'll continue to tow the line so it's a mute point.

the game is free and they lure people in with that then hook them with the DLC. its a smart move actually.

that and getting people used to GoD I guess?

or it could be an apology in advance because they sold out with the one and know they are into greedy f***s.

DLC = OPTIONAL

The games are still playable without any DLC at all.

of course its optional.

But I'm sure some have bought into it already, even if everyone doesn't it's still extra $$ for them where there would otherwise be none.

Would people be "satisfied" if they gave them everything that ever involved the game? Hand delivered commemorative poster and all!

^This.

It seems more like a poor attempt to compete with PS+ than anything else.

PS+, and a show of good will toward customers before the next generation (while not losing much of anything, being a nearly dead platform and all)
