Free games with Games with Gold**. Since Games with Gold launched on Xbox 360 a year ago, over 12 million people have enjoyed great free games, resulting in nearly 200 million hours of free fun playing Games with Gold titles. We’ve been learning from your feedback and have focused on making improvements each month to the selection of titles. To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Games with Gold for Xbox 360 and as a thank you for helping shape this program, members will receive an additional free Xbox 360 game in June. The Games with Gold titles for Xbox 360 in June are “Dark Souls,” “Charlie Murder” and a bonus game of “Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition.” We’re pleased to bring Games with Gold to Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One in June. Members will have subscription-based access to free games ranging from top hits to breaking indie stars. The program will launch on Xbox One with “Max: The Curse of Brotherhood” and “Halo: Spartan Assault.” A single Gold membership will get you access to the free games for both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

So an active Gold subscription will now be required to play the games, but it looks like it will be newer stuff.

Oh, now that the games require Gold to play like PS+ it's suddenly fine? Rentals aren't a problem here anymore?

Unbelievable.

It's pretty funny how angry you guys are. Get your priorities straight.

Bummed that I bought Dark Souls not too long ago for $5 and have yet to play it

Excited that I passed on buying Street Fighter for $10 a month or so ago

It still is a rental. I honestly don't understand how people feel like Netflix is renting but PS+ (and now Games with Gold) isn't renting.

Calling people out for blatant hypocrisy isn't anger my son; perhaps a trip to dictionary.com will soothe your aching posterior?;)

Lol @ the haters already piling in. They're mad because they won't have the paywall or free games argument anymore.


Sorry this is great news and all but all I kept seeing is FREE Dark Souls and Street Fighter lol...question though are we keeping Dark Souls and Street Fighter or are they part of the subscription?
