As was announced at this year’s E3 convention, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 users who have subscribed to the Games with Gold program have received a free game. The game in question is Defense Grid: The Awakening.

The Games with Gold program can be viewed by videogame enthusiasts as Microsoft’s response to Sony’s PlayStation Plus offer. Both offers essentially allow users to obtain free games on their consoles if they subscribe to a particular program.

The program for which Xbox 360 users have to sign up to get their free game is of course Games with Gold. There is however one big difference: the games offered by the PlayStation Plus are way better than the one proposed by its rival. Up to now, the games which have been offered to PlayStation Plus subscribers are Hitman: Absolution, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and Demon’s Souls. All these games are hits and are greatly appreciated by the gaming community. They are the complete opposite of Defense Grid.

The other negative aspect of Xbox’s Games with Gold project is the misleading pre-launch marketing promise made at the E3. According to Microsoft’s Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Yusuf Medhi, this program was to be launched by the release of the two games Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3. Opening the project with a game that is substantially less successful than these two is a massive faux-pas by the Redmond based software corporation.

It seems that Xbox has once more managed to lag behind PlayStation because of an apparent miscommunication between its representatives and its fans/clients. This has caused Games with Gold’s launch to be greatly criticised, both by appreciators and non-appreciators of the Xbox 360.
