Microsoft have announced that they will be extending the duration of their Games with Gold promotion. The scheme, which provides Xbox Live Gold members with two free games to keep each month, was due to end with the release of the Xbox One console; however, Microsoft have revealed the exciting news on their Xbox Wire blog,

“Today, as a part of the ‘Week of Xbox Live,’ we’re excited to announce that we are making Games with Gold an ongoing benefit for Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox 360.”

No word as yet on whether the promotion will ever extend to the Xbox One console, but the announcement shows Microsoft is certainly keen to compete with Sony’s highly respected PS Plus program. Gamers are also reminded that currently the epic Halo 3 is on offer to download for free, so make sure you add this to your download queue by the end of the month.
