wait, are you saying Xbox doesn't currently give you free games each month or good deals? Do you not have a 360?
Couldn't download Fable III because Xbox LIVE is apparently not 'officially' supported in my region. Ironically enough, I took $15 out of my wallet AFTER the FIII was no longer free to see if it worked and I could buy and download it without issue.
Other than that I'm looking forward to not be able to download the rest of the games coming these next few months to Xbox LIVE® for free.
Games that, as I've argued, are best-selling and you can get for a few buckets at Gamestop, and that MS is offering solely to celebrate their new console.
Pre-june there was no such thing as free games on Xbox LIVE other than those few specifically designed with FTP in mind i.e Happy Wars.
Deals are scarce and are often not that good. Nowhere near the craze of, say, Steam sales. Microsoft doesn't seem to grasp the concept of digital media, given that GoD versions of newly released games are still being sold at retail $60 months after release while you can get the physical game for only a nickel at Amazon or Gamestop.
Sony has been doing the free monthly games things for well over 2 years I believe.
