On Nov. 15, Xbox LIVE turns 5, (who else had "Johnny 5" come to mind). In celebration, LIVE subscribers get some freebies.
From the press release:
"As a gesture of thanks to the gaming community, all 8 million members will have the opportunity to download a free Xbox LIVE Arcade game,* available for downloading between 12:01 a.m. PST on Nov. 15 and 11:59 p.m. PST on Nov. 16.** In addition to this, every active member who joined the service in 2002 will receive 500 free Microsoft Points."
* Free Xbox LIVE Arcade download includes “Hexic 2” in Korea, and “Carcassonne” in the rest of the world where Xbox LIVE is available.
** Free download available for 48 hours starting at 12:01 a.m. PST on Nov. 15.
Enjoy! Carcassonne is a great boardgame, hopefully likewise for Arcade.
