February: Games with Gold vs PlayStation Plus

Last Updated: February 7, 2014


Both Microsoft and Sony will be offering a selection of new titles to their subscribers over the month of February, and we have both lists for you to consider and compare.

If you aren’t familiar with these services, Xbox Live players that subscribe to Xbox Live Gold, as well as Sony Entertainment Network (PlayStation Network) players that subscribe to PlayStation Plus, can get new games for free each month for their respective consoles. Currently, Microsoft offers two free games a month that players can keep forever, while Sony offers several titles a month that players can keep for as long as they remain a PS+ member.

This month, Microsoft’s Games with Gold will feature:

  • Dead Island
  • Toy Soldiers: Cold War

Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation Plus will feature:

  • Outlast (PS4)
  • Metro Last Light
  • Pay Day 2
  • Remember Me
  • Mod Nation Racers (PS Vita)
  • Street Fighter X Tekken (PS Vita)

It looks to us like Sony has the stronger lineup for February, even if Microsoft’s titles can be kept permanently. What do you think?
