Following Microsoft’s rather lacklustre showing for the beginning of the month with their Games with Gold program, they’ve decided to make Assassin’s Creed II the next title available for their program.
Games with Gold is a free service that lets Xbox Live Gold members download two games per month, completely free of charge, to their Xbox 360. It’s intended to compete with PlayStation Plus, a $50 per year service that gives gamers what Sony calls an “Instant Game Collection”.
We’re still much bigger fans of Sony’s offering, given that, this month alone, we downloaded Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Battlefield 3, and Saints Row: The Third, all for free. Microsoft, you need to step up your game.
