For anyone out there new to the XBOX 360, or online gaming, here is a deal that may just tempt you to take your black (or cream!) box online. Microsoft have announced that for anyone signing up for XBOX Live for the first time for a minimum period of 6 months, will qualify for a mighty fine free games package.
We aren’t talking poor games here either! In fact the bundle Microsoft are giving away is very impressive. The Five free games are Fable III, Halo Reach, Toy Soldiers, The Gunstringer and Kinect Sports. Once you sign up, codes to download the titles are sent out within four to six weeks (why so long?).
A nice mix of retail and digital titles then, although Kinect Sports would only be of any use obviously if you had invested in a Kinect, but nonetheless a tempting offer and one which compares favourably with the Playstation Plus offering. With this being targeted at new owners however, will Microsoft offer anything to their core gamer audience? We wonder …
Either way, if you do want to take advantage of this deal, be quick as it runs out next Tuesday. The offer is definitely available in the UK, and as of now its availability in other territories is unknown. So check out your dashboard new 360 owners!
