Xbox Live is 10 years old, so collect a freebie

Written by David Stellmack



Microsoft gives away Wreckateer, but it requires Kinect


Microsoft is celebrating Xbox Live reaching a milestone of being 10 years old; and if you were not lucky enough to get one of those 10-year celebration Xbox 360 consoles, you can still cash in on a freebie for everyone. The news is that Microsoft will be giving away Wreckateer free, as long as you get it downloaded before the end of the day today.

Despite the fact that Wreckateer does require Kinect, it is still a nice gesture on Microsoft’s part to celebrate all of the support that people have shown the Xbox Live service. In addition to the free Wreckateer offer, Microsoft has also arranged for special half off pricing on Battlefield 1943, Castle Crashers, Fruit Ninja Kinect, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, Bastion, Peggle, and Full House Poker. At 50% off, it makes some of these titles like Battlefield 1943, Castle Crashers, and Bastion a steal at that price.

Microsoft has not indicated if this is all of the fun it has planned for turning ten, but we will keep watching.
