Microsoft: Free Arcade Game for Xbox Live Holiday Outage

After the Xbox online gaming network was plagued with connection troubles over the holidays, probably due to the huge and sudden increase of users connecting to the service, Microsoft Corporation plans to offer a free downloadable video game as a token of apology. Throughout the break, an unknown (but significant) number of gamers were unable to sign on to the service, buy and download content, or play online. All Xbox Live members around the world will be able to freely download one game from the Xbox Live Arcade service; games sold on Xbox Live typically cost from $5 to $20. Details of the offer will be revealed in the coming weeks, including specific titles and an actual date.
