Written by: / / 32 Comments


One of the highlights of Microsoft’s E3 press conference was the announcement that all active Xbox LIVE Gold members will receive two free Xbox 360 games every month for the rest of the year. Fable 3 is currently free for Gold members and will be replaced by Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed II next month.

Microsoft recently shared some new details regarding the promotion, stating that a new game will be given away on the 1st and 16th of every month. You’ll have a limited time to snag each game from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and they are yours to keep forever even if you don’t renew your Gold membership.

Here’s Microsoft’s official statement on the giveaway:

“As our way of saying thanks, we’re giving all active Gold members two bonus Xbox 360 games each month for the rest of the year. Each specially selected, fan-favourite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they’re gone and keep them no matter what.”

Are there any particular Xbox 360 classics that you’d like to receive as part of this promotion? Let us know in the comments.
