Microsoft earlier announced that starting in October, it will no longer offer free Xbox 360 games on its Xbox Games with Gold subscription service.
According to Microsoft, the reason is that the number of Xbox 360 games provided per month has reached the catalog storage limit, but it will continue to provide Xbox One games and exclusive discounts for subscribers in the future.
The Xbox Games with Gold subscription service, formerly known as Xbox Live Gold, has been launched since 2013. It attracts players to subscribe by giving away Xbox 360 games every month. When launching the Xbox One series of consoles, it also includes giving away Xbox One game content. This counters Sony’s approach of adding games to its PlayStation Plus subscription service.
However, as Microsoft began to focus on the development of the Xbox Game Pass subscription service, players can download and use various game content through subscription qualifications at any time, including many Xbox 360 and Xbox One game works, and even the follow-up Microsoft also announced that players can play directly Basically free online gaming content, apparently offering free Xbox 360 games through the Xbox Games with Gold subscription service, has no real incentive.
The announcement that it will no longer provide free Xbox 360 games through the Xbox Games with Gold subscription service may also mean that Microsoft will readjust its content policy next to continue to attract player support.
