For a limited time, get 7 Xbox games for free

Tech Highlights:

  • Right now, via the Japanese Xbox Store, the following games are free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers: Children of Zodiarcs, de Blob 2, Stacking, and The Maw. In South Korea, Steredenn: Binary Stars is free. And in Taiwan, The King’s Bird is free. Of course, by the time you’re reading this, some, if not all, of these offers may have expired. That said, remember that you will need to be signed in to your Xbox Live Gold account to view the deal, otherwise the games will be listed at their normal prices. Meanwhile, if you’re not an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you’re simply out of luck.

  • Apart from December’s Games With Gold lineup, Xbox has offered a classic Xbox 360 title free for all Xbox Live Gold customers. In other words, it’s an additional freebie, but you’ll have to jump through some hoops since the game, Ikaruga, is only available through Xbox Live Gold Argentina, which means you’ll have to create an Argentina account, which is free. If this isn’t too much of a problem, you’ll be pleased to learn that there are a number of comparable offers available right now.

Of course, every game above is playable on all three modern Xbox consoles — regardless of the platform — via backward compatibility. That said, when you do download these games, note that they are attached to your subscription. If your subscription lapses, you will lose access to these games and all other games downloaded for free through Xbox Live Gold until you subscribe back up. In other words, these are glorified rentals, but technically that’s how all digital game ownership works.
