Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas
September's Xbox Live Games With Gold Are Magic 2013 and Rainbow Six: Vegas
Written By
View author's profile

Microsoft has confirmed the next pair of free games lined up for September's Games With Gold, following today's earlier slip hinting that the first will be Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013. That hint turned out to be right on the money, as the card game will be available to download for free from September 1st until September 15th.

From September 16th, you'll then be able to grab Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas for free until September 30th, giving you the chance to shoot your way through the notorious Sin City, taking in locations including the Strip, Freemont Street and numerous casinos as you fight an escalating terrorist siege.

Here's the deets with links to the games:

Well I own all 4 magic games, so this is a wash. In fact I've owned every game so far that has been given away except for the very first arcade title released.

How long does it take for Halo 3 to show up???? (I own that game already too)

IIRC the service is ending this year, so we get 6 months of old as dirt games and arcade titles? I'm confused I thought this was supposed to get people excited?

Rainbow Six Vegas is another really old game (but fortunately I don't have it anymore)

Very disappointing when you see the games showing up on the PSN network and we get such old and disappointing games. Hopefully they keep going after this year and hopefully we start to see more exciting titles. Will get Tom Clancy R6V but again, would have preferred more exciting titles rather than what we have been getting.

Ah, rainbow six vegas, now that is a game! So many good games on there back when i was new to xbox live, nice and challenging, tactical. It's been a long time since I've played a game that's been as much enjoyment as that online, CoD never really held up to it imo for close quarters multiplayer gameplay.
I'll probably start playing it again and play it online seeing as people are going to be coming back to it. I'll probably download magic as well, see what it's like, never been big on the card game though.

I am one of those type to not complain much because ofcourse it's FREE but R6V is a 7 years old game, it could have been the second one. I am glad it was DR 2 last month instead of first. MS please not more then 4 years old

@6 i know exactly how you feel. I will glady play these but r6v was one of the 1st games ever out on the 360 so most likely the majority has alreasy played this and magic? Should have been a bonus in my opinion but i am not at all surprised after all this is micro$haft the only company that still manages to fuck over their fans, even while giving out free stuff :/

Wow, this is a pretty poor selection. Not to sound ungrateful for free games, but Magic does not interest me and Rainbow 6 I played through last year and it felt dated. Yeah I got a few of the online achievements done, but I just cannot be bothered going for the rest. At least with not downloading these games I can catch up with what I got now.

People complaining are idiots. Do you expect them to tailor every title just for you because you happen to have these games already? So some people get free games - that's great for them, but it's just bad luck if you own the games already. Tough shit. Get over it.

@9: Yeah Crackdown and Dead Rising 2 sure were shitty! Wally.

I bet there'll be PS+ customers who get a PS4 when it comes out will get pissy when they're getting PS3 games in December. As if they'll be gifted a free PS4 title a month after it comes out.

Anyway, played and enjoyed Vegas 2, but I didn't enjoy the demo for the original Vegas game. Feel like a step backwards in everyway, which is to be expected considering it came first.
LOL @ Magic. Thanks, but nah.

I have to admit, although the games are free, they are so old. Most people have played these games years ago. PlayStation plus provides games that are recent for free such as Assassin's creed 3 and the new NFS MW

glad about Rainbow Siw : Vegas, the last time I played a rainbow six game was on the original xbox, 10 years ago or so, I loved it, specially the multiplayer, I wonder if this game has multi, and if it does, are the servers still online, that would be great!

This is a pretty disappointing month. The only game I've owned so far was the Dead Rising games, but I don't even want Magic.

I'll probably download Rainbow Six though. Even if I never play it. Free is free.

@33 It's a rip off because this month the games offered are crap because I don't like Magic and card games in general, and R6V I already played it for a year.
I thought with DR2, MS offered better games but that's not the case, luckily GTA V will be released shortly, so I don't really mind on it.

@9 Did you miss Dead Rising 2, Crackdown, or Case zero or something? Not including Fable 3 of course because that was before Assassins creed. You can't whine about free games which have so far been really good.

I do believe Rainbow six Vegas 2 would have been a better pick than number one to get people into the series. Although they are both really fun coop.

So.. everyone is complaining about games that they are giving away for FREE for a service that everyone is already paying for, they didn't have to do this at all. I own every single game that they offered for free but I still appreciate the fact that they are giving them to me for free. Also if everyone likes the games that PSN is giving away then get a playstation. I just think it's idiotic that even when things are given to people for free they will still find a way to complain about it.

Can't say I'm that excited about either game, but I will download them anyway as they are FREE. I won't moan that they aren't offering GTAV for free, or that the games are "soooo old!!!". I appreciate getting to experience some games I would otherwise not bother with or missed first time round just for paying for a service I'm 100% happy with in the first place. Cheers Microsoft!

What a Joke! Seriously Microsoft? Rainbow six is like 3 bucks at GameStop. It's like we are not even getting anything for free. What kind of incentive does this program think its offering is my question. Go Gold and get Rainbow six free. A huge 3 dollars in savings. I understand these titles are free and that many will not complain about that. I usually don't but this is ridiculous. It's kinda like a car lot saying if you lease a new car they will give you a cup holder for free. There are plenty of decent titles that could have been chosen not to mention Halo 3 that was promised and still not been given out. I have has xbox 360 release and have maintained gold every year. This is just a spit in the face. I hate to see the rival console (PS3) offering great titles for free and us Xbox fans get old trash.

I don't see why you guys are complaining. Microsoft doesn't have to give you anything for free. They're simply covering all the bases genre wise, from what I've noticed so far.

Sure, RB6 is quite old in gaming years, but there's tons of people who haven't played it.

I hear a lot of ungrateful greedy "please cater to me personally" attitudes here and it's pretty pathetic.
The lot of you need to stop acting so entitled to get what you want and for free, and stop your bitching when it doesn't happen like some fuckin spoiled little children. You're an embarrassment to the rest of gamer's.

Nice! I have Rainbow 6 Vegas 2! I saw this for quite cheap, but I didn't want to get it just yet so, thanks Microsoft! And guys, quit your whining. Still better than CoD. (And #2's customization and weapons are AWESOME so I hope 1 is as good. Demo is good but controls were changed.)

As for Magic 2013, it sounds like a good game. I was given a free fire deck along with yugioh cards AGES AGO and i never knew how to play, just played my own way. So, I am not against these games.

Thanks Microsoft! Forget the haters. At least they are FREE.

I'm an Xbox guy but I have PS3 as well and I'm sorry but this free game service from Microsoft really blows compared to PS3's Plus program. They give tons of discounts on games including 75% of everything in the store as well as free games that are much more recent like Hitman Blood Money, Saints Row 3, Uncharted 3, and Xcom. They add new games every month, exclusive beta invites and more. Plus it never ends like supposedly Xbox is doing this year.

I was excited at first for Xbox free games but most of them are very old or nothing I'm interested in and I haven't downloaded a single one.

Rainbow Six Vegas is so old, you can't get an Achievement (missing out on a full 1000G therefore) without using an Xbox Live Vision camera.

If this continues to next year, let's all hope for better games.

Reasonably pleased with Magic.
Not so much with RSV. I can 'technically' say I own it; I borrowed it from a friend and...well, we lost contact. But aside from that fact; imo the game sucks.
That's nothing against the games in general, because I loved/still love RSV2, I just never could enjoy the first one. At all.
That was a few years back as well, lord knows how dated it would feel to me now.

R6 Vegas was awful then and i'm sure it will be even worse now. It can be had for $2 in most game stores and online sites. It isn't even worth the hard drive space.

I'm happy with Magic though, don't own it and never really played it. At least there is one notable game this month worth downloading.

To people that keep saying to stop complaining, the games are free and whatnot. No, just no. People have a right to complain. We all pay for Xbox gold just so we can play online games, use Netflix etc. whereas PS3 you can play online and use Netflix for free. So Microsoft decides to give some free games to compete with PSPlus which is cheaper than Gold btw. And people see the competition giving such better deals that it's a joke for MS to be giving 6-7 yr old games away. People have a right to complain because they are paying for gold and they're not getting nearly as good benefits for it.

By voicing our opinions, maybe there's a tiny sliver of hope that Microsoft will change and offer some more recent games. I doubt it but it's better than just blindly saying "thank you MS for the free 7 yr old games. I love you MS."

Well, not sure about the card game but i'll give it a shot eventually and not played R6V so same with that. At least when I decide to stop paying for my gold i'll still have the games to play as they're free, not 'rented' like on PS+. They may not be brilliant, they may be old but they're better than nothing. I didn't start my sub to get games, I started it to play online reliably with friends, and i'm still getting what I pay for.

Yes, yes you will. At least until you decide to upgrade to the XONE and can't carry them over.
But even disregarding that; I've had Rainbow Six Vegas 1 in my 360 collection for about four years.
I also haven't played it in four years.
This whole renting counterpoint only works if they're games you'll WANT to go back to. Which Vegas, for most people, probably isn't.

A free game is a free game. I have fully completed AC2 and did not complain about it on the list. If I don't need the game I just don't download it. I have a lot of other games to keep me entertained but it is nice that they are giving something to you for free. Most people on here complain to much on pointless crap. PS+ is not better because if you don't pay for the service you cannot play the "Free" games you downloaded. If I cancel my xbox live at the beginning of next year everything I got for free I can still play. The world is full of needy and greedy people, just be thankful for something free.

People that whine about how psn gets this games n how xbox gets older games we get to keep our games.Psn has depending on the games 15-30 days then the games gone unless you pay for it so when people say psn gets these games It makes me laught because its so wrong.

This could be a set up for something good on the xbox one but if everyone crys about it we could never see it again so if you have the game play it with a bunch of noobs & stop crying gez.They don't have to do this

Gee i'm sorry for complaining guys, I just spent more money on a Monster energy drink at the gas station that has more retail value than Rainbow Six Vegas, but hey thank you SO MUCH Microsoft. I really appreciate the $2.00 reward after spending over $10,000 on Gold, Retail games, and Arcade games over the past 7 years. I sure am gonna miss my birthday present of 40 points also.

Fact is, Microsoft is a multi BILLION dollar company, they released a faulty console as i'm on my 5th console in 7 years. 5 CONSOLES because of RROD and Open Tray disc drive failure. MS paid to replace one of those, the rest came out of my pocket. They pulled so much garbage during the Xbox One reveal, basically told us tough shit about always online, and then finally changed their mind when they realized it would damage sales, yet they still cram Kinect down our throats. Microsoft owes us more than a $2.00 game. They are trying to do something nice for us Gold members but the fact is they are being so ridiculously cheap that it's all for show and there's little value.

What they really need to do is select about 50 or so games, and once a month make it a grab bag. You can download one of any of these 50 games for free of your choice. Next month you may do the same. I'd rather be able to pick from a selection of games once a month opposed to getting two games monthly that I played and finished long ago. Sure I downloaded Crackdown, Dead Rising 2, but they were all said and done by time they were released for free and I had much of nothing to go back and play.

Totally agree mate, these titles are free and am paying for Gold anyways, I don't even care what PSN+ gives cause I am the one who prefers xbox over ps3, so it's my decision to stick here. Plus the point a lot are missing is online is free on psn in ps3 so they have tons of cash to give to developers, we will see what games psn+ member gets whence ps4 launches.

BUT........

Really Rainbow 6? I didn't complained on Fable 3 or Crackdown or AC 2 despite playing those games but this time they are giving a military shooter and 7 years old, that's something to complain about. As for Magic, it's good I will give it a shot, may like it, might not but it's a new game at least, They should stick to at least a 4 years window that's all. Please it's end of the gen with no backward compatibility in future one has to expect more from MS.

Not even the sequel, but the original Vegas? Ugh. I understand what MS is trying with this whole promotion, but someone needs to clue them into the fact people will usually not appreciate being given games that are so old, even if they are free.

Granted PS+ is getting Ico in September, Ico is held up as a classic title and a pinnacle of the medium (plus they're getting a GTA game, the last Rayman,some Galaga remake/remix and a Resident Evil game).

R6 Vegas is... an okay entry in a classic series that many felt took the series in a poor direction.

Again, I get what they're trying, but to say that MS's execution of this whole free games thing has been... underwhelming.

I didnt expect much from MS when they announce this program to begin with so unlike most of you I am not disappointed. I know that MS would not give out a game I have yet to get, as they are only pushing games that everyone that is into gaming have (provided they want to play them to begin with).

So far while these games might be old they are all worth getting especially for free now if only they gave away GTA for free i might be tempted to play the fourth considering the ones before it were so sh!t.

For everyone talking about the "better" games offered on PSN+, correct me if I'm wrong here, but don't you lose all access to those games if your PSN+ sub expires? At least, that's the info I found wherever I looked. Wouldn't that make it more like renting the games instead of "buying" them for free?

How does it work for Games with Gold? Do you lose access to the games if your Gold sub expires? I honestly don't know if you lose access in that case.

@143 Thats true, and with xbox you do get to keep the games if your gold runs out, but i mean you can go buy every game xbox has released for under $10 (most under $5). Personally, I would rather "rent" a good game instead of getting to keep some old ass games.

@142? What do you mean sonys go away? I have both xbox gold, and PS+, and my games don't go away. Yeah you only get a certain amount of time to download them, but that isn't any different than this.

My gold expires at the end of December, and I probably won't be renewing. The only game I really play online now is Rock Band 3, and I haven't even played it much lately.

IF they manage to bring G4G quality up to par with PS+ then I'll probably renew, but it is just not worth it anymore for how little online play I do.

#143, G4G you get to keep them, and from what I have read if your PS+ runs out you can't play them, but if you renew at whatever point they will be available again.

@144 I agree that the games could be newer and better. To me, it feels like perceived value. To some people these games are great since they've never played them before and now's their chance to do so. To others, they're terrible because they've either played them already or have zero interest in playing them.

Thing is so many people complained that PS+ offered free games and they didn't get anything for free from XBL Gold. Now, those same people are complaining about which games are free with XBL Gold. It seems like some gamers just want to be constantly unhappy.

Like the games or not, they're still free, even if they are older. If someone who didn't own a car, but desperately needed one, and someone offered to give them a compact car for free, it would be ridiculous for that person to decline or complain because they wanted a luxury SUV. Beggars can't be choosers here.

I know comparing cars to video games is a stretch, but free is free and games are a luxury, not a necessity.

@18: You're begging for things that were never promised to you in the first place. XBL Gold was always lauded for its matchmaking and integrated features. Games with Gold is a new thing, and was never something we were told we would get. So shut the fuck up and be happy that you're getting extra value for your money.

@5: While I agree the quality of games on PSN are better, there is a difference. These games from "Games for Gold" you get to "keep" if your Gold lapses while PSN+, you have to keep paying to "keep" them. You can't compare the two. I do agree that I hope this service continues until at least sometime next year.

Never understood why people buy the Magic yearly releases, always saw it as a ripoff. I don't see why they couldn't just offer a yearly expansion for like 800 MSP to add in new cards and what not. That said, since it's free, I'm going to download it so I can finally play it with some of my buddies.

Also, Microsoft is trying. They could of shafted us until the end. I enjoyed going back and replaying Crackdown, of which a friend of mine hadn't played before because they didn't have an Xbox back then. Some of these games are great for people who only got into console gaming halfway through the cycle.

@169 MS is doing fine with the free games. Could they be better? Yup. Could they have never done Games with Gold at all? Absolutely.

We've had XBL for 10+ years without these free games, 8 of those on the 360, and now that we have them, people still find a reason to whine. If people don't like the games, don't download them. If people really hate the selection, they can get PS+ and enjoy their free rented games.

As for Vegas, it's a great game but Vegas 2 is way better than the first one. Still, Vegas 1 support a co-op of 4 players for the main story, while Vegas 2 only support 2.

It's nice to see two games that I don't already have, but I've no interest in these games. Magic is a bit of a rift between me and many of my friends, and I can't bring myself to play a game with an Achievement that requires a vision cam.

I know that sounds a little bit silly, but those are my reasons nonetheless. Maybe next month will be an improvement for my tastes.

Magic, seriously? Worst game ever. Not just the game but the entire idea behind the card game in general. I spent years trying to figure out why my friends were so damn obsessed with pissing away their hard earned money to buy pack after pack of stupid cards which are absolutely worthless. It was so bad it's almost as if it was a drug to them, literally every penny saved or found just for those stupid cards. I'm somewhat of a card collector myself (Hockey, other sports memorabilia) and I still don't understand the appeal.

@181 : Magic and Rainbow Six Vegas are some good games (if you don't like card games, that's not our fault), but the problem is just that most people might already have them.

@183 : The difference is that PSN games aren't a gift, it's a rent (once you stop paying, you lose them. On 360, even if you stop paying, you still keep them). But yeah, I would rather prefer only rent 360 games if it could help having more recent titles.

So you have Gold for free? Can you explain us how you get Gold for free? *sarcasme*

Again a really good promotion by MS. Giving away old as shit games that are 7 years old and most likely most people have already played it over those years. Do they want to compete with PsPlus? I can imagine MS sitting in the office debating how they can add some more value to Gold and look at PsPlus and go "hey why not give away some games" but MS is cheap and they decide to give away the most cheap ass games they can, so it won't actually cost them anything. And by doing this pissing off more people, because they thought they would get some decent and somewhat newer games. You can't blame people for getting their hopes up and looking at PsPlus and seeing it's a bit shitty in comparison.

But at least everyone has a choice. Get some more Gold, or get some PsPlus. Or none at all.

The cost of a monthly Gold sub = The value of the two monthly games you're being offered.

No-one ever seems to mention this obvious fact.
If you expected to pay £5.99 or whatever and get permanent ownership of two games both worth £20 retail value you probably failed your GCSEs. All of them.

@199 "when PS4 launches they're giving drive club, a PS4 LAUNCH game." The drive club they are "giving" away with PS+ is a cut down version.

"PS+ is the same yet they give us AC 3, Saints row 3 and 2, Uncharted 3, the games with gold is a joke compared to this" Again your using the word "give" you are paying for these rentals , they are not gifts.

@204 At least it's something that is new rather than a 5 year old game. Also, I would rather they do something like that where I actually get value for my money rather than these cheap games. I get to download and keep the games as long as my sub is still active. People get to play and finish games such as Hitman, Saints row and Uncharted and realistically, no one is going to keep a game on their hard drive which they have finished. But keep explaining the benefits of this program, please.

@204 I think he's just trying to make a point.It's a very valid one if you think about it.He's just saying PS+ offers newer games and that Microsoft could do better.Rights of ownership can be debated, but it all boils down to what value you get from these games.

I have MOST of the games that have been on offer so far.However, the ones I did pick up have been pretty damn sweet.I have a huge backlog, so it's a bonus when they offer something I don't have.

@206 "But keep explaining the benefits of this program, please"-I never made my post to explain the benefits of Xbox Gold, but rather to correct some of the mistakes and misconceptions in your post. I pay for Gold and know exactly what I am paying for , the same applies to PS+
PS+ was built on the principal that in order to compete with Gold and get money from subscribers they had to offer something more , which is what they have done so rather well. Its a great service but I'm not sure why the two are compared.
The PS+ on PS4 and Xbox Gold on Xbox One on the other hand can be compared as both services are required for MP, and in that case what MS is offering is severely lacking ...so far

Again, the most overused statement when complaining about FFG games.

Yeah I get that it's free... How many people do you think that are on XBL that even know how to play or get into Magic?? It's complicating for beginners to get the hang of.

You can't keep saying, ''its free, stop complaining'' when we are paying for gold and we are getting games which are about 7 years old and also some which people are not even familiar with how they work or play.

Already cancelled the Gold auto renew on the Xbox.
Already told the boys that once March comes the Gold ends on our 3 Xbox's and family pack.
Already decided I can't afford either machine but on principle, I wont be buying the less powerful more expensive one with the shit customer service and poor value for money.
On a positive note - just got 3 great games on PS+

It's free who cares what's the point in crying about it? Microsoft makes millions probably billions of dollars every year. Do you all really think they give a shit about what games y'all want for free? Cause they don't the only reason they fixed the stupid shit with the Xbox One is because they knew they would lose millions of dollars if they didn't cause everyone one would've jumped ship to Sony.

@215 What's the point you ask? Your following statement answers it perfectly. They make all this money from us which people pay them every year and have spent even more on games in the store etc and this is how we are thanked? By a mediocre celebration for Next-gen?

Even though this isn't that great of a month, at least R6V will get a short revival of it's online mode, So at least we have that.
Personally, I think they could've done better with the games this month though, as I got R6V for $1.59 at gamestop about a month and a half ago.
Maybe this will give me inspiration to play it again.

My favorite thing about all this is people using words like "ancient" to describe games from a few years ago. Fuck that, I played Zork the other day. That game deserves the title of ancient, you idiots.

I've said this before and I'll say it again: These games are free. Truly FREE. The proof has been staring you in the face all along. Gold subscribers used to pay $50 a year for their service. Some complained, most took it. In November 2010, the price of Gold was changed to $60 a year. Again, a few complained, but they resigned to it. Now, in early to mid 2013, Microsoft told us that they'll be presenting us with two free games every month until the end of the year, and possibly beyond. This program has obviously begun, and that's why we have received anywhere from two to four free games every month since its inception.

Cost of annual Xbox Live membership at this time: $60. PERIOD. These games are free. If you don't fucking like them, don't get them, but don't bitch, either. There's a phrase about staring a gift horse in the mouth. Keep being so vocal, and Microsoft will give up on trying to make anybody happy, pull the free monthly games, and still charge your ass $60 a year for their service.

Sometimes, things happen in life that you don't like. Don't be a whiner about it. Roll with the punches and move the fuck on.

Thanks for the reminder why knives in schools were banned. It was because I would have stabbed every little emo nerd holding a pokemon card. Now I got to play something similar. And need to download extra to play online. An arcade game? Microsoft loves to shit on us all. I remember back in the day you didn't have to pay for add one as it was on the disk you just had to unlock them in the game.

I am glad about gta 5. This could have been a huge opportunity to advertise gta 5 much more. Instead advertise magic which is clearly just an achievement boost game for me. Once got those points it is being deleted.

as for ben 10. That was cruel what Microsoft did. And I sure as hell hope they make up for it. The free games should have been titles that was released as xbox 360 games only. When I say xbox 360 only I mean games you could go to the store and buy not arcade games. So stuff like assassins creed gta, halo, final fantasy etc etc.

I have been a loyal customer to Microsoft with well over 300 xbox 360 games brought. About 50 games on the original xbox. Some pc games. That is my thank you? Guess when I do so console shopping next xbox one will not be considered unless they stop shitting on loyal customers.

onto rainbow six, used to have it but it got stolen. Did find it a bit hard. But might give it another go. I was offline when I had it so maybe an online campaign might do the trick. Still angry considering I can get it for next to nothing anyway.

yes Microsoft are giving them away for free and blood oath they should, because we are the ones putting food on their tables. Paying for their kids to go to college etc etc. But stunts like these are not doing them any favours with winning the next generation console wars. So what next month? An indie game? That happens I can guarantee people will wash their hands with Microsoft. I for one would never upgrade to gold again. Buy no more games on the 360. Finish all my current games then sell them all with my 360. Also sell my windows phone and windows 8 laptop. In fact would never touch Microsoft again

Dear #215 you said it is to stop us from jumping to Sony and getting the playstation 4. Are you sure? To be it seems like they want us to get the playstation 4.

@#48 - I don't think you know what rip-off means.

You didn't pay for either game. You're not getting ripped off.

You're just disappointed and acting entitled to better games when Microsoft doesn't have to give you any. Just saying.

I would rather be given a newer game and keep up my subscription than told I can keep the game and that game be 6 years old and valued at 3 bucks. That is just not worth it to me. Yea PS+ takes the games back if you lose your subscription. But you get to have some awesome newer games. Microsoft lets you keep the games but almost none of these are worth keeping. They can keep these old titles and I want be participating in this program anymore for moral reasons. I think that everyone has a right to complain when the competitor is offering newer games and a lower subscription price. And to anyone who argues that has no common sense or care where there money is going or being spent,

Rainbow Six Vegas? What a joke, that game is horrible. Just give us Bioshock already. There's no arguing with a game like that. Old game but damn it is good! Magic 2013 on the other hand... I might take a look at it, but I don't fancy strategy/card games too much.

Also, I'm not just judging Rainbow Six from it being an old under the radar game on my earlier post. The reason why I'm saying this is because I noticed a comment saying to give it a chance before judging it 'cause it's an old game. Again, I'm not judging it like that and that is not the (main) reason why I said it's horrible. I ACTUALLY played it (a year or two ago) so I have a legit opinion from experience. It's pretty awful.

That would not surprise me. Here is what they need to do two xbox games free to gold members a month (which is what they advertised) and two free arcade games a month to silver members. What they do is make it so you must log into your xbox live account on the website if your a gold they put up a list of xbox 360 games, if they are on silver they put up a list of arcade games. Now here how it happens each will contain 10 to 20 games. And you must tick two no more. The two games with the most votes is the next months free games. No one will know until a day before as all votes will be private.

You know, for all of you complaining about the games being released, Microsoft could just go back to what they were doing four months ago...which is not providing any free games at all! I keep reading "where is Halo 3, where is Bioshock?" And then "oh I can get this game for $3/$10/$15 at GameStop!" Know what you can get for $15 at GameStop? Halo 3 and Bioshock! Know which two games are top-selling Xbox 360 games? Halo 3 and Bioshock! Know which games most people probably have already? HALO 3 and BIOSHOCK! Stop complaining, enjoy your free games brought to you at no expense to you (you can always accept the download and do it later, so no, there's no need to clear your memory now).

And growing up, I had an Atari, then a Nintendo. Pong and Duck Hunt sucked hours of my life away, Noobs.

Are you f@#@ing kidding me Microsoft? You consider a 7 year old game as a 'reward' All you're doing is pissing off more people by exposing just how little you value their custom.

I don't get why people defend this crap by saying it's free?

People leave free stuff outside their house every week.

The garbage collectors then come by and take it to the landfill.

There are no doubt "hidden" treasures in there that a few people would find a welcome improvement from their own crap, but those people throwing them away are not doing people favors.

Rainbow 6 Vegas is so dated, I wonder if they want us playing old games right before launch so we think the XBONE graphics are worth $500+

On playStation Plus network they have 18 free games & counting.
Title games such as Uncharted 3, Hitman, Saints Row, Oddworld Munch's Oddysee just to name a few.

Magic is fucked. Be at the same person over and over in campaign and it keeps giving me a bullshit pack to play with not a chance to defend myself. So it is not a game if it is impossible to win. And anyone wants to tell me I am not trying or may not be very good at the game etc etc can go into the hardware store buy a long piece of plank, shove it where the sun don't think about shining and try it for themselves I am up against encounter

These "free" games are NOT free! We pay a premium to play games we've already paid for just so we can play with friends, we pay a premium to use netflix, lovefilm and other subscriptions and we pay a premium to use social media site that are free to use EVERYWHERE else! I cannot see what my £40 per year is getting me??? I've been a big fan of MS for a long time but this takes the piss.
