PlayStation Plus vs. Games With Gold January Comparison


This PlayStation Plus vs. Games with Gold Comparison Chart provides an easy visual aid to compare the list of free games offered by both PlayStation + (Plus) subscriptions, and Xbox Live Gold subscriptions.

The purpose of this chart is to provide a service for readers that compares the game offerings listed by both subscriptions, so that readers can get a sense of what is being offered per month. This means that the total retail value is based on a month by month basis, and is not cumulative, as certain games are sometimes relisted several times (relisted games are highlighted in yellow).

Please note that the games listed below are listed with their retail value at the time of the promotion, and a link to their respective IGN review when applicable. Also note the differences between PlayStation Plus’ and the Xbox OneGames with Gold service to only have access to downloaded titles while maintaining an active subscription, versus the ability to play a downloaded Xbox 360 title for free, even after subscription is no longer active. The list is meant as a general guide and doesn’t mean to imply that value comparisons are the same for every player. For example, someone who owns a Vita in addition to a PS4 would of course derive more value the PS Plus offering than someone who only owns a PS4. 

  • All prices are based off of their respective PlayStation or Xbox Store listing at the time of the offering.
  • Certain games can be played cross-platform (Vita games playable on PS4 and 360 games playable on Xbox One).
