Like PlayStation Plus, Xbox Live Gold now offers subscribers free games. Last month, members were able to get Defense Grid and Assassin's Creed 2 gratis. What's on tap for this month?
Tomorrow, Gold members will be able to download the original Crackdown ($15 value). Then on August 15th, subscribers will be able to pick up bothDead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero ($35 value). Unlike PlayStation Plus, these games can be kept forever, regardless of an ongoing Gold subscription.
Games with Gold will offer new games on the 1st and 15th of every month. While the program was originally planned to last until the end of the year, Microsoft has extended the offer. According to Xbox.com, the program will now run until the end of July.
