Xbox360 Owners: Don’t forget to download your free XBLA game today

Microsoft responded to the availability issues of online service Xbox Live! by offering a free game to their customers. I had originally hoped that they would offer users a 800 Microsoft Point credit towards any game(s) they wanted, but Microsoft announced that they were giving away Undertow instead. I downloaded the Undertow demo when it first came out, and I played it for about five minutes before quitting. Oh well, any free game is better than no free game, right?

Undertow will be available for free until Sunday, January 27th. Ars Technica is reporting that Xbox Live! is already suffering from mass downloads, so you may have to be patient.

    Thanks for the write up. I probably wouldn’t have noticed that there was a free game available. I got mine Friday night and there wasn’t any problem/slowness.
