Xbox Live Gold is a monthly subscription service required to play online on the Xbox One or Xbox 360. You can also get additional discounts on deals and free games every month if you are a member of this subscription service.
Xbox Live Gold games works a little differently than the PlayStation Plus free games for the Xbox 360. If you buy the Xbox 360 games, they will be your forever while the Xbox One games will be removed if you don’t subscribe to the service. Still, it is a nice incentive to subscribe for those who don’t play online multiplayer much in order to keep a subscription cost justified.
