To celebrate five years and over eight million accounts activated on their Xbox Live service, Microsoft have gone the extra mile and, instead of just issuing a press release bigging themselves up, will be allowing everyone a free copy of Xbox Live Arcade title Carcassonne. It will be available tomorrow, 15th November for, according to the US website, for two days.
While the official UK Xbox site doesn’t mention it this news was also posted on Eurogamer, so Europeans will presumably be able to benefit from this altruism. In times past, free stuff tended to be only available on the US service (for example, Looney Tunes cartoons and free games). Free stuff is always welcome and this is an outstanding gesture from Microsoft. Well done!
