This Month’s Free Xbox Live Gold Games Are Rainbow Six Vegas And Magic 2013

Yes, you read that right. While PlayStation Plus offers up last year’s Assassin’s Creed III, Jak & Daxter HD trilogy, the recently released Stealth Inc., as well as Urban Trial Freestyle and New Little King’s Story for Vita, Microsoft are offering the near seven year old Rainbow Six Vegas and last year’s Magic game.

They’re free, yes, but you can’t help but be confused at Microsoft’s poor attempts at offering games month on month, while Sony give several big titles for free. The difference is quite astounding.


Magic 2013 (originally $9.99) will be available from the 1st to the 15th of September, while Vegas ($19.99) will become available after that, leaving the service on the 30th.

I’m honestly surprised that it’s not even the second title in the Rainbow Six Vegas series – who is going to download this seven year old title?

  1. There is no comparison (PSN is just as fast if not faster when downloading 10-40 GB games – do it all the time)

  2. tbf I’ve got Fable 3, Dead Rising 2, Assassin’s Creed 2 and since I’m a single mum earning an apprentices wage a) i don’t get a lot of time to go out and buy games, and b) when I have the time I don’t have the money. So I actually I don’t care how old the game is, I can’t turn down a free game, means when my little boy goes to bed I’ve got a new game I can play, complete and delete, which means I haven’t any money, haven’t got games cluttering up my space, and when I’m done I don’t have to worry about selling the game for pittance because I can just delete, because I won’t have lost any money. So actually. GO MICROSOFT!
