What is Xbox Games with Gold?

Games With Gold is Microsoft’s answer to the free games you get with Sony’s PlayStation Plus.

You can get the free games on Xbox if you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold – something that’s required for online play.

Then, each month you receive four free games, two on the latest console and two for the previous generation.

These are yours to keep for as long as you have your Xbox Live Gold membership running.
