After users suffered alot of problems accessing xbox live over the festive period - due to record breaking numbers accessing live for halo 3 and mass effect - microsoft has said it will give all its 8 million users a free downloadable game to apologise and compensate!

Dear Xbox LIVE Members:

During this past holiday season you helped us break a number of Xbox LIVE records. This included our largest sign-up of new members to Xbox LIVE in our 5 year history and just yesterday you broke the record for the single biggest day of concurrent members ever on the service.

As a result of this massive increase in usage we know that some of you experienced intermittent Xbox LIVE issues over the holiday break. While the service was not completely offline at any given time, we are disappointed in our performance. I would like to take this moment to thank you each and every one of you for your patience and understanding as our team has worked around the clock to return the service to a stable state.

At the same time we would like to offer a token of our appreciation to all of you in celebration of record success for the service. And as a thank you for your loyalty during this holiday period, we will be offering all of our Xbox LIVE members around the world access to a full Xbox LIVE Arcade game that will be available to download free of charge. In the coming weeks we will be sharing the specific details of this offer with you.

Thank you again for helping make Xbox LIVE everything that it is today!

Sincerely,

Marc Whitten

General Manager, Xbox LIVE

You do not allow downloads as freebies?

Even if they are normally a cash download and have generally been offered as a limited freebie?

A free game is a free game in my eyes, whether it's pick up in store or download from the net.

I can see where your coming from as in general computer programs in the public domain, but if a game is offered for free as a good will gesture that would normally cost money from a reputable company then is that a great freebie or is it not?

We have never allowed downloads as freebies. Where would we draw the line from people posting free games, or free software etc. The freebies forum is mainly for the tangible freebies.

What happened to that thread where there were loads of programs for download. That was there since I joined the website. Only recently has it disappeared.
