In case you are a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live subscriber, you must be well aware of the fact that these services are great value for money deals. You get an access to system’s chat features as well as online multiplayer. On top of this, you get to enjoy some of the free games each month.
But not every month is the same. Sony and Microsoft have stumbled in past as well. Farming Simulator 19 and Cities: Skylines were major disaster. But they made up via Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars Battlefront II in June.
Also, there is Microsoft’s Games with Gold which has a poor selection consistently. A last few months have been disastrous and the trend doesn’t seem to be changing for the August offerings.
Let us see what is in store for us.
- Available August 1 to 31 – Portal Knights ($19.99 ERP) on Xbox One
- Available August 16 to September 15 – Override: Mech City Brawl ($29.99 ERP) on Xbox One
- Available August 1 to 15 MX – Unleashed ($14.99 ERP) on Xbox One & Xbox 360
- Available August 16 to 31 – Red Faction II ($14.99 ERP) on Xbox One & Xbox 360
When it comes to Microsoft, poor selection has been a huge disappointment for the fans. As far as Sony is concerned, they are not perfect either but have been consistent in their approach. You can count on the quality of the games. Are you really finding the Augusts’ Games with Gold all that appealing? Or are you simply planning to skip it?
