The promotion was launched as a limited-time-only type deal at E3 this summer as a pat on the back for loyal Gold members, bringing popular titles from yesteryear or emerging arcade titles free of charge.
Now the company has said it'll be an "ongoing" benefit, while announcing the title for the forthcoming fortnight will be the blockbusting, best-selling Halo 3.
Microsoft says the continuation of the scheme reaffirms its ongoing commitment to 360 owners and potential owners with the new Xbox One launch on the horizon.
Speaking of the next-gen console, Microsoft was not drawn on whether Games with Gold will also be a perk for early Xbox One adopters.
A spokesperson told Engadget: "We're excited to announce we are extending Games with Gold for Xbox 360. We will share more details on the program soon. Stay tuned for our plans on Xbox One."
