Today is July the 1st and Microsoft will be altering the price on a game as part of their new "Games with Gold" program, first off is 'Defense Grid: The Awakening'

The game will be free from today, until the 15th of July and will give you a saving of 800:msp:.

As some of you may remember, at E3, Microsoft announced that there would be two free games each month until the release of the Xbox One. When they announced it they promised titles such as Halo 3 and Assassins' Creed II which has lead to confusion, many people (including myself) were expecting Halo 3 to be free today due to the rumors that spread and Microsoft's bad wording.

'Games with Gold' is a program very similar to something Sony have been doing for quite a while where free games are given away to paying customers. The prices for the service are also very similar but so far the free games line-up on PlayStation have been much better with XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Saint's Row The Third becoming free this month.

Even though this months current free title isn't what we were all expecting, make sure you go and download it from the Marketplace anyway. Defense Grid as the title would suggest, is a tower defence game. (Link)

    I played this game on the PC over a year a go and enjoyed it, if the achievements aren't too bad then I'll get it.
