Free multiplayer on Xbox Live...for a little while and only for 3 games


A rumor has been going around the net that Xbox Live is going free for select games until fall. Apparently that rumor was true. According to a updated post by Shacknews, Microsoft has informed them that Xbox 360/Games for Windows silver members will limited free multiplayer access.

Here’s what a MS rep had to say “For a limited time, we are offering free online multiplayer on Xbox 360/Games for Windows titles that offer LIVE cross platform play,” a representative explained. “This promotion won’t last, so we encourage everyone to take advantage of it while they can.”

The representative concluded that, “When the new Xbox experience launches this fall all multiplayer gaming on Xbox 360 will be for Gold members only.” As the original rumor stated the only games that will feature this limited free online play are Universe at War, Shadowrun and Lost Planet: Colonies Edition.

That was fast. I guess there's no Achievements on the PC version, huh?

The second part of the trilogy comes out next year.

I'm out of Country. I'm in my homeland. Enjoying Tim Horton's coffee, poutine, and fries supreme from Taco Bell. Mmmm Fries Supreme. Actually competing in a real golf tournament Saturday and Sunday with a buddy from home. He's a 1 handicap and I'm a 20 (and improving). Had 4 pars on the front nine last night at his course, but also had a 9 in there on a Par 4 (5??). Once you get in the fescue...OMG. Anyways.... OUCH! Played till 9:15 or so last night, which was basically dark. It stays much lighter here than down south though. Anyways we played the 490 yard par 4 with 9 irons. Two shots with 9 iron, then we allowed ourselves the ability to use SW for the approach to the green as we both had about 100 yards. One light swing with the SW and we were both on. Two-put for a bogey. Not bad considering we couldn't see the ball leaving the club. Just hoped we shot it straight!

So in short, that is why I haven't been on much. I am missing my 360 though. GOW is calling me. Never been into the golf games on computer, but have never ever tried it on the xbox or 360. May have to try it as golf is my new sport. Hockey is out. I'll have to change my name. I'm just too injury riddled from hockey. Can't wait to play! See you online in about a week and a half.

Star Wars Force Unleashed demo is available for download on Xbox Live and PSN. Not sure about the Wii and PC.

Apparently you'll be able to go to the official Red Alert 3 website and you download a free copy of the original game tomorrow. It's 10 years old but still fun as hell.
