From the looks of it, Microsoft’s Games with Gold offered $947.84 USD worth of free games in 2017. Sony, on the other hand, offered $1302.73 USD worth of free games. Therefore, it’s clear that Sony comes out on top when it comes to Games with Gold vs. PS Plus Free Games. However, do note that while calculating, I added Sony’s both European and NA’s offerings. You can deduct one of these to get a more accurate figure.
