The once limited-time Games With Gold offer on Xbox 360 is to remain a permanent feature.
GWG mirrors PlayStation Plus in that it offers free access to select titles for users who are subscribed to Xbox Live. The good news is that it looks like the promotion is sticking around for good.
“At E3 2013, we launched Games with Gold as a limited-time program to thank our Xbox Live Gold members,” Microsoft stated. “Within that short period of time, we've seen an overwhelming response, with more than 120 million hours played with Games with Gold titles.
“Today, as a part of the ‘Week of Xbox Live’ we're excited to announce that we are making Games with Gold an ongoing benefit for Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox 360.
“Whether they are blockbuster AAA or popular arcade titles, Games with Gold continues to offer a diverse mix of games with two free Xbox 360 titles a month – yours to keep and at no additional cost. According to recent surveys, 97 per cent of participating members have given their stamp of approval for Games with Gold, and we're excited to continue bringing you great games every month as part of our ongoing commitment to providing great value on Xbox 360.”
There’s so far not been any suggestion of a similar offer making its way to Xbox One.
