Free LIVE Arcade game offer

Itching for a gratis Xbox Live Arcade game? Microsoft is offering one of five titles for free, but you have to follow these three steps:

1. Sign up for 12 months of Xbox Live Gold between now and January 5. It must be done directly through Xbox Live, meaning you can't use that prepaid card your mom or significant other bought you as a gift.

2. Decide what game you want free: Zuma, Marble Blast, Sonic the Hedgehog, Assault Heroes or 3D Ultra Minigolf. Do this step in your head.

3. Download a gamer pic or theme related to the game. Only the first one counts, so make sure you didn't skip Step 2 before downloading a picture of a putter when you're hoping to nab Sonic.

See, folks? Even with digital distribution, TINSTAAFL applies: There is no such thing as a free lunch. Of course, if you were needing to upgrade or renew your subscription anyways, you might as well get something extra out of it.

So basically its $50 bucks?

* Plus the cost of a avatar pack/theme.
The sad part is that it's only for stupid people that spend $50 for 12 months. People(me) that buy the redeem code cards for under $40 are lower class to Microsoft I guess.

Still not bad for those already renewing their subscription.

How I wish I could be online and enjoy thee....but thy dearest 360 committed Suicide for the 4th time today. Thank you MS for repairing my baby over and over and over and over. Maybe my 5th system will work for longer than 6 months.

Enjoy Live my friends. Enjoy!

I will have to load up the PS3. Errr Still good but not Live.

Or smart people can just go to and buy the 13 month prepaid card on sale right now for $39.

It's been "on sale" for $39 with free shipping every time I've seen it all year. It's definitely the way to go.
