Well it is the first week on the month and last week both Sony and Microsoft shared news of what their loyalty online services has to offer. Xbox Live and Sony Entertainment Network formerly known as PlayStation Network accounts is a requirement to play online games. This may be a drag for many, but PlayStation as we know have become a trailblazer to reward users for using their service, giving a return back into the investment of PS+. Xbox has joined that same incentive with XBOX Games with Gold, to give XBOX Live subscribers two games a month. A slow start but every new program has to find what is right through trial and error. Let’s take a look at which service comes out on top this month in what they have to offer for their online subscribers.
Xbox Games with Gold Line Up
This month Xbox starts off the first half of the month with Deep Silver’s Dead Island. Then on the 16th til the end of the month will release Dead Island, I myself was hoping for Riptide since it is a more recent one from Dead Island, but Xbox Live Gold member can take opportunity to download and enjoy if they missed out.
Toy Soldiers: Cold War
Sony is feeling the themed month of love by spreading the love with its February line up for PS plus. A lot to choose from whether you want to play an intense horror game like Outlast for you love one to grasp you out of fear on Valentines, or play some co-op instead with Pay Day 2. In addition there are single player titles like Metro Last Light and Remember Me for those who slept on these two titles. For PlayStation Plus members who game on the go, Street Fighter X Tekken and Mod Nation Racers is on the menu. Here is the list below.
