During the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2013, the entire gaming community in attendance first heard of Xbox’s latest offering: Games with Gold for all Xbox Live Gold members. The program began with Gold-level membership with Xbox 360 consoles. A year later, it became ready for Xbox One users as well.
How it works
What does Xbox Games with Gold entail?
Here’s everything you need to know.
In a nutshell, members will get to enjoy up to $700 worth of free games every year. With backward compatibility with Xbox One available for Xbox 360 games, there surely are countless perks waiting for each member.
Gold-level membership also comes with discounts from up to 50 to 75 percent on games, add-ons and many other products available in the Store. In 2014 alone, there was about $1000 worth of discounts available for all.
For something as low as $4.99 per month, members will surely enjoy discounts and perks such as Games with Gold, be in touch with a multiplayer community, and so much more.

Developed by Koji Igashari along with a great team at Inti Creates, this game is a definite classic among platformers all over the world.
