If you didn't know already, Microsoft revealed at E3 that Gold members will now be eligible to two free Xbox 360 games each month. There wasn't really much information on how this new promotion works, although some keen-eyed Gold members had already spotted that Fable 3 was up for grabs for free before Microsoft even announced the new promotion.
To clear a few things up, Microsoft has now given a few new details on their promotion, stating that "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-favorite game will be available to download only for a limited time, so grab them before they're gone and keep them no matter what."
A new game will be available on the 1st and the 16th of the month for free for a limited time, and every Gold member that downloads the game will then be able to play the game for free forever, even if there Gold membership runs out.
Next month we will have Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3 up for grabs for free, and this month we had Fable 3, so it seems Microsoft are offering the games that no one really buys.
It's nice that these games are being offered for free, but if you do miss a game, don't worry because the 'specially picked' games seem to be ones that can be picked up from GameStop for a few dollars.
