Xbox One owners all received great news today. The Games With Gold program for Xbox One has officially launched. Xbox One owners can now expect not one, but two free titles each month courtesy of Microsoft. Since the launch of the Xbox One console, Xbox One owners have been asking for Microsoft to start the Games With Gold program for the new console. 7 months in, we finally have it.
In a move to compete with Sony, Microsoft started out the program by offering 2 free games monthly. This was countered by Sony last week as they announced that starting today, 3 June, PS4 owners will also receive 2 free games a month via the Playstation Plus program. The Xbox One free games this month are Halo: Spartan Assault and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood. Competition is alive and well between Microsoft and Sony; we as gamers should welcome that as they push each other to become greater.
