July 1st, The date for your first free game for being a gold member on Xbox 360. At E3 they said it will be Halo 3 or Assassins Creed 2, Well I can now confirm that the game is defense grid awakening. Yep its not Halo or Creed and not even a full retail game, Its a old arcade game. Microsoft continue their PR nightmare and word play tactics campaign. Major Nelson is quoted on Twitter for saying
Re watching the Xbox conference, You can hear them say that to kick off the campaign you will be releasing Halo 3 and Assassin Creed 2. On the flip side they do say at the end they will be out in the coming months. Again the words used mean they have things in place to cover their back.
What do you think of the service? Too little too late? Not good enough?
