Halo 3 Free after July for “Games With Gold”

halo 3 free

 

Halo 3 free and Assassin’s Creed free, just not yet.

Gamers with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions will be able to download Assassin’s Creed II and Halo 3 free in the months to come.

Just wait for a bit, guys (and gals). At the 1:01 mark in the video, Yusuf Mehdi says, “And to kick off that program I’d like to share just two of the titles we’re going to offer over the next few months, Assassin’s Creed II, and Halo 3.” It was an oversight of mine and many like me that caused us to believe that for the month of July we could download Assassin’s Creed II and Halo 3 free through this “Games with Gold” program. When he said, “…to kick off that program”, I thought he was saying that these two titles were supposed to kick off the program.  I somehow failed to hear the statement in its entirety and improperly reported it. Blame it on lack of sleep or simple oversight, many of us reported this improperly. I apologize to Microsoft on my behalf for taking part in fueling a PR issue for their company. I saw that some sites on the web were knocking Microsoft for misleading us with the way they announced those two free titles at E3, but I don’t believe they mislead us. We each made an oversight, we just have to admit it before Microsoft picks up bad PR for our mistakes.

This is a bummer, but I can still wait to download Halo 3 free because my old disc is in bad shape. If you would like to pout with me, have your laughs, or comment, all are good options right now. However, if Xbox haters come here wanting to spread some hate and say this is a fault of Microsoft I cannot stop you. I just ask that if you choose to rant or rage to someone, direct it here. If you have something to say about this, good or bad, feel free to sign up and comment away. Also, feel free to check this out in the forums and discuss this there too. I’ll be here to respond.

Now the new Games for Gold for the month of July will be Defense Grid: The Awakening, the tower defense game. Normally costing 800 Microsoft points, so you save about $10 for this game if you have been wanting to play it. You will have through July 15th to download this and then a new game will be announced for download!
