do i get a shiney sticker as well:p

Srill haven't got my xbox back from repair :w00t:

Great board game!

So, doesn't this mean if we register for a Korean silver-tag, we can pickup Hexic 2 also for free?

How nice... those of use who gave microsoft our money for the game the day it came out get nothing free for this anniversary. Trust Microsoft to screw over the people who actually buy the arcade games.

Great for playing online, though the card version is easier if you're all in one place.

Now looking forward to the promised XBox live version of Puerto Rico...

I think I remember reading somewhere that the console knows (via IP addresses) which country you are in. However, it is probably still worth a shot.

Ohhhh Sod's Law it has to be when MS have my Xbox on repair.... they've had it 5 weeks now, they promised me 15 days!! :x

Do you need a gold account to get this? I'm guessing not, but better check!

It doesnt apply to XBOX Live Arcade Games! :w00t:

Only Video Marketplace is restricted [+ purchasing microsoft points ---> but you can download all free items; just nothing from Video Marketplace] (USA Only)

# Just make a Korean Gamertag via some Korean store & it should work :thumbsup:

You can still download Xbox Live Arcade games with a Silver account, basically the only thing you can do with Gold that you can't with Silver, is multiplayer.

What I want to know is if I download this on a mate's Xbox under my gamertag, can I then re-download it on my own Xbox after the promo and be able to play the full version?

Yes, you can re-download it on another Xbox and play it fine as long as you're online.

Kind of annoying really, I want Hexic 2 as I already bought Carcassonne soon after it came out. Pooey!

Everyone is also getting 500 Microsoft Points too by the way, so you can buy something else!

Just checked this out and only members who joined Xbox Live in 2002 will receive 500 free Microsoft Points. Can't be that many people as the Xbox Live only came out on November 15, 2002. MS know that, stingy gits.

I got Xbox Live in May 2003 so I'm 5 months too late. I remember the days of the original Ghost Recon multiplayer and thinking nothing is EVER going to top this online :-D

just hope its as good as that great other free game Yaris. :whistling:

Nice find.! hot

head up again, dont forget you free arcade game tomorrow, starting 8am GMT.

Excellent, logged on this morning and downloaded Carcassonne for free

Going to try creaing a Korean account this evening to see if I can also get Hexic 2 ;-)

Thanks harvie..........will rep you later when i have some more to spread around.

I can confirm that setting up a Korean account does allow you to get Hexic 2. Enjoy!

Lol, woke up today, did mroning stuff, worked a bit, remembered Carcassonne was free today - switched on the 360, found it, downloaded it, ran the tutorial and the screen went a bit funny and froze. Power cycled the 360 - RING OF DEATH. ho hum..

Planned obselecence at it's best - the box is 1 year, 5 days old. Iv'e not turned it on in over a week. I suspect it died at 00:01 on the 11th. Ho hum, being repaired anyway, but still funny.

Downloaded this morning, many thanks for the heads up.

Just in case there are some new folk to Xbox Live around who don't know how to find the download...

Sign in to Xbox Live
Go to 'Games' blade
Select 'Xbox Live Arcade'
Select 'Download Games'
Select 'New Arrivals'
Select 'Carcassonne'
Select ' Full Game - Carcassonne'

then the download should start.

lets be honest, its a pretty rubbish game, even if it was free'cant imagine anyone buying that game... roll on sensible soccer

thanks for the heads up!
