Xbox Games with Gold, PS+, comparison

Another month, another batch of free games!

May’s Games with Gold offerings have been revealed today, and the standout title is just shy of being 10 years old.

The news comes via Major Nelson’s blog, revealing that there will be four new free games- two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360- with both of the 360 games being Backward Compatible on the Xbox One.

Xbox One owners will be able to download Defense Grid 2, for free during the entire month of May, with Costume Quest 2 available  from May 16 to June 15.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers who are interested in grabbing some 360 games will be able to pick up racing game, GRID 2, from May 1 to May 15, with Peggle on offer from May 16 to May 31 rounding out the rest of the month.

Taking a quick skim at the titles on offer with Games with Gold this month, and it’s fair to say that nine-year-old Peggle is quite possibly the best game available with the free subscription. Microsoft has pointed out, however, that the games on offer add up total to being worth over $60 according to ERP. So at least it’s your Xbox Live membership paid for in one month.

Are you looking forward to picking up any of the games on offer this month on Microsoft’s two consoles? Let us know in the comments below.
