Since it's a new marketplace the games they give away should be better.

I wonder if he means "later in 2014," or "later, in 2014"? I mean, trying to parse tweets is a fucking task, but that is a necessary distinction.

Finally some parity with what sony does. Can only lead to better free games for everyone!

LocoCycle will be the first game. You heard it here first. But in all seriousness, its good news and better games should be coming to the programs.

@ericsmith: I imagine they want some games to be able to put up for free. Right now they couldn't hand out games like LocoCycle or AC4 becuase they just released. Maybe some time around E3?

I think you mean "parity". Parody is form of imitative satirical fiction.

Well that's good news! Wait... how's that going to work then? Is this a basically confirming backwards compatibility considering that XONE won't really have many games in its first year that they'd want to give away so quickly.

@ll_exile_ll: Have you seen the games they've given away compared to PS Plus up 'till now... Parody may be the right word after all if it doesn't improve ;-)

Let's hope these past few months were a test run because honestly, PS Plus shits all over XBL's deals at the moment.

Old jokes, fantastic. Ugh.

The way he worded it maybe it's going to be something separate from Games with Gold. They could do a PS+ like situation where you only rent the games till your service expires. It could be that.

Good news! Hopefully they're closer to the PS+ offerings.

This is why competition is good!

damn my lazy american English! I will edit it so people don't think I'm being an ass

Cool, but I still don't know if we still get to keep the games or if it's a brand new service more inline with the PS+ way of doing things. Either way it's great, if they can provide better offerings in the future.

Cool

Makes sense to be competing with what Sony offers with PS+, on the PS4.

I can see this happening around E3 time, when the worlds press is watching.

Guys, E3 is only a little over 6 months away!!

Good news. Lets hope they offer a good selection.

At least launching it soon after launch will guarantee more modern games. PS+ is a pretty awesome service but it'll be interesting to see how Sony will handle it seeing as it's starting from the launch with smaller titles while MS can wait until next year and give people a huge game like Ryse or DR3.
