Microsoft will no longer offer Xbox 360 games on Games with Gold. According to the website The Verge, the American manufacturer has already informed the subscribers of the program by e-mail about the change, which will come into effect on October 1.
In a statement, Microsoft explains that it has “reached the limit of ability to include Xbox 360 games” in the Games with Gold catalog. On the other hand, it states that it will continue to include Xbox One games on the platform.
“this [a mudança] Does not affect any Xbox 360 games downloaded before October 2022. All Xbox 360 titles you’ve redeemed through Games with Gold before that date will be yours, whether or not you continue your subscription. .
Games with Gold is a monthly benefit offered to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Each month, a Microsoft curator selects four free games: two for Xbox One and two for Xbox 360. The latter titles can be played on the One as well as the American manufacturer’s latest consoles Series X and Series S.
Microsoft has not specified how the four free games offered in Games with Gold, which are now excluded from the Xbox 360 catalog, will be available.
Endangered, Xbox Live Gold is still popular
Although Game Pass is almost a mandatory subscription, Live Gold is still popular among Xbox users. Last year, Microsoft even tried to double the cost of the program’s annual subscription, but backed off after backlash. Meanwhile, there are strong rumors that the company is considering discontinuing the service to focus entirely on Game Pass.
In addition to enabling online features for Xbox One and Xbox 360, Live Gold also offers monthly discounts on the Microsoft Store. Currently, a monthly subscription to the service costs R$34.99 in Brazil. Game Pass costs around BRL 29.99 per month for both PC and console.
