Rate the Rumour: Dead Island free for Xbox LIVE in February?

While PlayStation Plus subscribers get BioShock Infinite, Metro: Last Light and more for February, it's being rumoured that Xbox LIVE owners will be getting a free game of their own for February - Dead Island.

Rumour has it that Xbox Live’s ‘Games with Gold’ promotion will give Techland's excellent (but old) Dead Island as the first free game offered next month.

The rumour comes from NeoGaf, so it could be complete nonsense, however given that these leaks are usually right and that there is no real reason to make this up (now if it was Forza 5 we may be skeptical) then we believe it's probably true.

What do you think?

Rate the rumor!

Here's our scale:

1 - No Chance
2 - Unlikely
3 - Hard to Tell
4 - Possibly
5 - Definitely

4. I mean then did give out Sleeping Dogs at the start of the month so I know then they are open to games that aren't 5+ years old

The way ShopTo's live updates happen on the fly, am I right in saying I just saw you update the page adding: "What do you think?" or was I just imagining things... Anyway to answer the news article, 4 - Possibly only because this is the trend for GwG since the start. Actual recent titles like the way PS+ offer will probably happen later in the year when the X1 gets the GwG promotion. Sony got it right with offering free games every so often. Microsoft jumping on the strategy is good, they just need to catch up big time! Wonder if Nintendo will ever offer free Wii U games? lol
