    They had to do something to try and keep up with the Sony PS+ success.

    Is that why people buy PS+ or PS4s though? If so, then agreed. But I'm not convinced.

    Not really but once you get it. PS+ makes a great incentive to buy the other sony consoles for the freebies (that's their trick) buy a PS4 may as well buy a Vita for remote play and free games and why not get a cheap PS3 as a media box with freebies while waiting for next gen to get going

    PS+ is about ?30 a year Charles, look at the list of games here that have been on it over the years, excellent value even for a fussy git like me who only owns one of the three Sony consoles. For the PSN price of three or four Indie titles I get PS+ for the year, and as there is so little for the PS4 it's a new release that goes straight on to PS+ each month at the moment.

    On the other hand you have to keep you PS+ sub going to carry on accessing the games, with GWG you don't (not on the 360 anyway) the games are yours regardless as to whether you have a Live sub or not. So it may well be ?30 a year, but thats ?30 every year if you want to keep access to the games.

    Its not a bad deal though, and at least has forced some competition which is never a bad thing.

    Thats why I bought PS+. I actually can't think of any more compelling reason to buy it, it's all about the free games (speaking as a PS3 owner). Cloud storage and auto-updates are nice features, but they don't really sell the package like all those freebies do.

    the below turned up in my email this morning good on ya microsoft, we now have exactly the same features on both next gen consoles.

    At Xbox, we?re committed to continually improving the Xbox experience based on your feedback. Today we?re announcing two changes that you have asked for.

    In June, we?re making Xbox Live Gold even better. Games with Gold will be coming to Xbox One, so a single Gold membership will get you access to games on both Xbox One and Xbox 360. In addition, we?re introducing Deals with Gold for Xbox One which gives members exclusive discounts on games and content in the Xbox Store. With the most advanced multiplayer, Games with Gold, and Deals with Gold, Xbox Live Gold is better than ever.

    Also coming in June, all Xbox 360 and Xbox One owners will get access to popular entertainment apps on Xbox without needing an Xbox Live Gold membership*. This means that everyone can enjoy the amazing gaming, TV and entertainment experiences that Xbox has to offer, right out of the box.
    Hopefully we will see a free version of Crimson Dragon this year, Can't complain about the freebies really but i thought they would have launched with a bang, instead of starting with converted windows phone games.
