I'd rather have PSN's "rental" games then the hot garbage MS is pumping out for free...


Defense Grid is infinitely better than some of the crap they've put on PSN+, like Sideways.

As others have said in other topics, it's your fault for assuming what was not actually said.

You're just as helpful as people who blame the user when their disc gets scratched. 99% of game journalism sites were saying the games were gonna be halo 3 and assassins creed too. Get off your high horse


Believing things that have only appeared in the media and not been officially announced by the company and then complaining when those reports are wrong makes you a dolt.

Remember when the PS3 was blocking used games? Hell I could list dozens of things 'journalists' have got wrong about Doctor Who. Not that people like yourself ever learn but once again the moral is, believe nothing until it's confirmed in public by someone who is not a low level employee who wouldn't be informed of decisions like that anyway.

Sometimes people on this site truly astound me!

I feel the same way as OP and LOL at all the people who "knew" all along that AC2 and Halo3 weren't the game for this month... Everyone was reporting that those were the games we were going to get.. Even Microsoft's support team tweeted that we would get those games as well... Microsoft pulled a bait and switch plain and simple.. I can't believe people defend this garbage..

My Gold account expires on the 28th of July.. The only thing making me reconsider keeping it renewed was the free games... I was always going to go with the PS4 after the new consoles were revealed...

I have no reason to keep my Gold account renewed because I'll eventually have a PS4 and Microsoft is giving free garbage...

"BUT... BUT.... BUT.... YOU CAN'T COMPLAIN BECAUSE IT'S FREE!!!"

If you're complaining about free things, I have to wonder if you can actually afford a new console.

No, just because a customer service employee made the same incorrect assumption that you did does not mean that Microsoft "pulled a bait and switch". Hell, bait and switch doesn't even come close to applying to this situation as there's nothing being sold.


You mean other than a subscription to Xbox Live, right?

But you're getting exactly what you paid for with the LIVE Gold subscription...

But if you subscribed earlier this month just to get the free copy of Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed2 as promised by Xbox support, then I guess you could call that...a bait and switch?

Why would you buy an online gaming service solely on the intent of receiving a free game? Seems rather.. idiotic.
