Still showing as 800 MS points on all my screens, guess it's the time difference. Probably also means it's your last few hours to grab Fable III for free if you haven't already.

I can't complain at free, but GOOD GRIEF, MS! It's like the very idea of positive PR is anathema to the company at the moment.

No need. Defense Grid is an excellent game. :P

Seriously though, could they have given away bigger games? Definitely. But no-one is paying for them like with PSN+, which is a paid-for service. Arguably a bigger game would have helped them recover some of the bad press and in my mind they probably should have taken the hit to generate a better public image.

The smallprint says that from the Dashboard you go to the Games Tab, then click on Browse Games, then click on the Featured Games With Gold square.

In reality, Games With Gold still shows Fable III, so currently just search for Defense Grid on Arcade and download it for free instead, it changed from 800 MS Points to Free sometime between my last post and now.

It's now free! But the option of free doesn't appear until you're signed in - it'll say 800MSP and above it 'Exclusive Gold Price: Free'.

Gold subs support more than a half-assed network infrastructure and trophy system.
