Sleeping Dogs And Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light Are Free With Xbox Live Gold In January

sleepingdGames with Gold is "Games with Square Enix" in January 2014. Xbox Live Gold Members will be able to get Sleeping Dogs for free between January 1 and January 15. Afterwards, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light will be free from January 16 to the end of the month.


Sleeping Dogs was a blast to play and a great addition as a freebie from Square Enix and Microsoft. I wonder what Japan will get since Sleeping Dogs is a CERO Z title and so far no CERO Z game has been selected as a Games with Gold title in Japan.

    Sleeping Dogs totally worth it for free.

  • FlyingPony

    Wow. Big games there MS offering.

    I hope this will make Sony take it as a challenge and makes some of its PS+ games available for free, truly owned by the user and remain playable even after subscription end.

    This is why I like competition, and not monopoly.

  • Bobby Jennings

    PS+ Already got Sleeping dogs.

    And Tomb Raider? Got some catching up to do.

  • Max

    Honestly, if they want to do better, they should pick other games or add two more besides those. Because Sony already had these two for free on PS+

    It’s free you ingrates stop complaining. Jeez the fact that xbox gamers never had a program like ps plus and they now have a similiar one who cares what they get it’s still FREE. And unlike Plus you can keep the game forever even after your subscription ends.

    • Anewme…Again

      Free games that almost everyone that have interest in those games have played and own already…
      At least with PS+ we get games much more recent, even if we don’t keep them forever

      • Brandon Dutko

        A lot of people don’t have money or have other priorities that keep them from getting games they want, even games from a generation ago. Doesn’t mean the didn’t want it. I have wanted a few of the games that went up OR was not sure, and getting them free pushed me to play them and get interested in the series. I’ve only previously owned Dead Rising 2 from this entire thing so far. Alot of these games were ones I wanted to try but didn’t want to buy more games yet.

        Not to start a flame war or anything, but if I wanted to pay for a service to have temporary new games, I might as well get GameFly.

      • TBH, most people who like PS+ most likely will continue their subscription with the service.

  • dsar

    I am pissed because I already bought these games during the Steam sale, which they told us what games we will have months beforehand

  • LustEnvy

    If for some reason 360 owners haven’t played Sleeping Dogs, for the love of god, do it. Play that game. No arguments. DO IT.

    • Kaetsu

      I loved playing through Sleeping Dogs! The writing and the story was really good and it was overall very fun to play not to mention that roaming around the gorgeous Hong Kong is an experience on it’s own.
