Games with Gold program remains ongoing for Xbox 360 gamers

Halo 3 joins Games With Gold as program is extended.

Halo 3 joins Games With Gold as program is extended.

That’s right, readers, the program that Microsoft initially planned to only last a limited time has been confirmed to stick around, at least for Xbox 360 members.

For those unaware, this program is like Sony’s PlayStation Plus program. Where Sony gives out free games every week or so, Microsoft’s program gives out a free game on the first and fifteenth of every month. The newest release for Games with Gold? Halo 3.

Gamers who have Xbox LIVE Gold simply so that they can play online (or for another reason) can grab the game now and finish the fight with Master Chief. There are no details on exactly how long it will stick around, as they simply stated it will be an “Ongoing” benefit, where before they stated it would be a limited time offer.

What do you think? Will they keep it up and even make such a program for their upcoming Xbox One?

Thanks, Joystiq!
