Xbox Live gold members get free game on 1st and 16th of each month through 2013

Microsoft has outlined its plans to give away two free games to Xbox Live Gold members each month until the end of 2013, starting with Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3.

OXM reports that both games will be free next month, and the program of free games will see new titles added on the 1st and 16th of each month until year's end.

Once you have the games they are yours to keep indefinitely. No strings it seems.

A Microsoft statement reads, "As our way of saying thanks, we're giving all active Gold members two bonus Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year. Each specially selected, fan-favourite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what."

What do you make of the above? Is it a good incentive to get Xbox Live Gold? Let us know below.
