I would guess at Arcade titles at least initially until the stable of games they can give away for free builds up a bit. I wouldn't expect anything mindblowing to turn up for at least the first six months of the deal if not a year.

I think we are all happy to hear about this,
and I'm hoping some of the games we get
are remakes of classic xbox360 games. :mrgreen:

This is why the endless fanboy console wars baffle me. MS aren't doing this to keep us happy (although we are :D ) they are doing this to compete with Sony. For both of them it's about getting our money and nothing else.

If every fanboy got their wish and someone "won" the console war both MS and Sony would stop doing stuff like this because they would have no reason to. We'd all be forced to buy their console because otherwise we'd have to give up gaming. We need at least two strong consoles in order for both to be stronger and offer better deals.

NB: Not having a go at you Nick, your quote just helped open a door for my point.

Didn't ps+ only start because the ps3 was trailing by some margin at the start of last gen and they had to catch up? Is this what you humans call....irony?

Well this, I've always been baffled by fanboyism because they are clearly just trying to make money, and you catch more flies with honey as the saying goes. Fanboyism can end up becoming rather self destructive because any perceived affront to the fanboys becomes a very personal betrayal.

NB: Not having a go at anyone...except perhaps fanboys of all creeds and colours. :lol:

Read about this in the early hours of this morning over at IGN. Quite welcome news i must say,as personally,i wouldn't have expected it on the One due to no back catalogue of games. As a few say though,its probably because of Ps Plus an of course agree with everyone here,that if it wasn't for competing for each side we wouldn't be getting these fine bonuses. As i've said before,i certainly don't think they owe me anything,i certainly get more than my moneys worth out them as it is.

Just have one little worry though,i hope it won't be games like Crimson Dragon straight away,or any other launch download only title,as i'd have already bought them on launch day,it would be good for everyone else of course an nothing wrong with that. It's just take this months games for free example,they are games i hadn't heard of an Iron Brigade anyway seems like it might be allright,heard Keflings wasn't bad too. So i like being offered interesting games that i wouldn't have tried before tis all.
Just have to wait an see what they offer,but either way there will be no complaints from me :wink:

Good news for me today is .... *drum roll* My One is being made ready for delivery HOORAH!! :D

Gonna say i'm no fanboy, i'm just glad Microsoft are giving us gamers great value for money. I've never ever been a fanboy haha, i'm a 39 year old gamer and owned literally every gaming console known to man lol. I don't get the whole fanboy thing either, i buy consoles for the games not brand loyalty :wink:

Anyhow i'm too old for all that fanboy bashing lmfao!
