The lights are on
Subscribers of PlayStation Plus have been big fans of Sony's Instant Game Collection promotion, which gives out free games on a monthly basis. This year, Xbox Live Gold subscribers began receiving the same awesome deal. September is bringing along two new games for subscribers to Microsoft's service.
Next month's offerings include Magic 2013: Duels of the Planeswalkers on September 1, followed by 2006's Rainbow Six: Vegas on September 16. If you're a Gold subscriber, make sure to hop on in the coming weeks and start your downloads!

I just bought Rainbow Six: Vegas and the second one yesterday on PS3. It's so fun, especially with split screen co-op. Feels less like a tactical shooter, and more of just a slow paced (but still action oriented) shooter where kills and guns actually have weight. Seriously surprised at how much fun I was having.
I'm cool with Vegas being one of the free games.
Sweet. I have neither of these.
OMGGGG Microsoft hold it right there!!!! You don't need to be that generous.
Sounds like a pretty good deal. This averages out to what, a savings of $30? Not too shabby.
Those are two great games! Rainbow Six though is incredibly old. At least give us Rainbow 6 Vegas 2.
about time microsoft
Never played Magic, time to change that. I had Vegas 2 and it was great, so I'm sure Vegas 1 will be fun, too! TERRORIST HUNT!!!
I love 7 year-old games! It's a good game (R6V) but come on Microsoft...
Wow, pretty weak month. Not interested in Magic at all and have played and beat all R6's.
I got Magic simply because it was free. I tried playing the actual card game about 4 years ago, but couldn't get into it. However, having the arcade game in my collection, I might give it a shot. Now, Rainbow Six.....that's a different story. Sad to say, it will be my first Rainbow Six game I have EVER played, but nonetheless I will definitely be looking forward to it come 9/16.
