Games with Gold, Microsoft’s Xbox Live program debuted last summer and offers two free games a month on Xbox 360 for members with a gold subscription. Since the promotion’s release, many have felt cheated with the selection of games that have been offered so far. Well Microsoft Game Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer addressed the fan feedback during a Q&A session at SXSW over the weekend.
“I have been sitting down, monthly now, with [the Games Gone Gold team]… and playing a more active role in picking franchises that show up in Games with Gold, and I think you’ll see at least something that feels, at least, more true to what I think Games with Gold should look like with the constraints that are there,” Phil said.
The GwG program is often compared to Sony’s PlayStation Plus promotion, which offers more games and many that are more recent. This is what he had to say on the matter.
“One of our… differences between the other system we get compared to, is the fact that with Games with Gold, you get to keep that game, regardless of whether you continue to subscribe,” Spencer said. “I think there’s some steps and some evolution of what Games with Gold or any of the other systems will go through to their full potential”
It was reported late last year that Games with Gold would be making its way on Xbox One sometime this year. When asked about it, Phil tweeted that details would be revealed soon.
