Microsoft extending ‘Games with Gold’ to Xbox One

Specifics won’t be given until next year

Given the popularity of Microsoft’s Games with Gold promotion that gives out two free Xbox 360 games each month for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, the company said last month that it would be extending the initiative for an undisclosed amount of time. Microsoft’s Larry Hryb has now confirmed that this promo will continue on Xbox One.

He says that more (see: actual) details are due out next year. That should hopefully give them plenty of time to examine what PlayStation Plus does well and figure out a plan to bridge the gap between the two offerings. If that means better, newer games but the inability to keep them after you cancel Xbox Live Gold, I’d be all for that. Potentially terrific news.
