Free swag cause microsoft loves us!

I've noticed there hasn't been much posts about these things, but I've always wondered what all you can find for free in the marketplace. I've got tons of pics and themes that were free, but I've always wondered if I've missed stuff... So i was wondering if people would like to share what they know is free, and I'll start with a few quick Arcade games you can DL for no cost... Doritos Crash Course, Aegis Wing, and Harm's Way.... I'll have to go through my pics and themes to list them all.

True. I didn't even think of that... I've never seen a new console that didn't come with it.

Noboundz may have a certain flavor to his posts, but he doesn't outright attack people for just having a little fun with a conversation... Anyway. Dash of Destruction is a new one to me, so I looked it up, seems to not be available anymore.

List of all free Xbox Live Marketplace content

The warmth and kindness of an Xbox Live friendship. Sorry, forgot that costs $60.

That's not very helpful or Ambassador like. Only fools wouldn't take advantage of the $1 per month promotions on the dashboard or 12 month subscriptions on sale at many Canadian retailers.

Perhaps but it is true.  The standard cost of an Xbox LIVE Gold membership is $59.99/12 months, which for what the service offers is insanely overpriced.

Dashboard promotions can be alright, relatively speaking, however Microsoft actually prefers consumers _not_ buy LIVE subscription cards at retail and prefer consumers to go via the service itself with auto-renewal on.  More profits and no middle man that way.

[/quote]To add to this, Dash of Destruction has now been removed, so is only available to those that had it before.  There is also at least one free table for Pinball FX2, but all the others cost.

I felt ripped off by Pinball FX, even though it's free. Hasbro family game night is the same too, they advertise free, but their not. The Game Room and Crimson Alliance are cool, because they tell you up front that it's not 100% free.

All though I'm pleased that Game Room offers many titles that otherwise would be lost into obscurity forever, it's one of the worst scenarios for achievement hunters, I remember reading the dollar figure required to complete it 100% and it's substantial (sorry I can't remember the exact amount), I don't normally moan about having to pay for DLC that's required to earn certain achievements, but Game Room is ridiculous...:-)

I have to agree with Turv3y, the program obviously needs to overhaul its "screening" or assessment process, "half" is a pretty good estimate...:-)

Off topic, I know, but I agree as well. Part of the issue however, is the dynamic of this particular forum. It's supposed to be "General Discussion" but instead it's mostly technical/ clan/ banned support. So Ambassadors here actually have purpose... answering the technical ones, and redirecting the rest. But on other Xbox forums, there's actually discussion, and there, Ambassadors are no different from anyone else, offering opinions, challenging others, etc. And no one takes them more seriously because they have an icon. But meh... my icon will eventually go away, and I can be a 'regular' as I used to be, and should have remained.

Personally I think the edit job was unwarranted. The discussion was civilized.
