Why not just give us a free Kinect, because I never used mine often, and after 2 months of not using it, I turned it on, and it was broken. Great, more Microsoft crap.
New Kinect Central home page on Xbox Live offers mansion-exploring Haunt title from Parappa the Rapper studio for free until Monday.
Gamers searching for a free Kinect game are in luck. From today until Monday, Microsoft is offering the Kinect-exclusive mansion-exploring game Haunt for free. The title can be accessed through the just-launched Kinect Central homepage on Xbox Live, according to the announcement from Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb.
Normally, Haunt sells for 800 MS points, or $10. Developed by PaRappa the Rapper studio NanaOn-Sha, Haunt launched early this year and has players exploring Benjy's Mansion, a haunted house full of ghouls and mystery.
The Haunt giveaway is for Xbox Live users in the United States only. Microsoft made no mention of extending the offer to other regions. For more on Haunt, check out GameSpot's review.
"Microsoft is offering" or "Microsoft offers". No, really, I don't care about fast reports, news poetics and such bullc***. It just shows laziness.
that's horsesh!t.......im canadian damn it and i use your services just as much as any other US citizen, where is my free gear?
My Kinect tends to gather dust but I grabbed the demo for this a couple weeks ago. Saw it for free and had to grab it. It really is a decent title full of mindless-fun. Best use of walking mechanics thus far. (not perfect, but best I've seen)
for everyone outside of the U.S., you can still get it for free, just make a new hotmail account, when it asks for your info, choose united states, 10012 for a zip code and a phone number with a NY structure,join xboxlive on your xbox and link this newly created account to an offline profile, and thats it, i do not know if the zip code or the phone number really matter, but better safe than sorry, anyway i am mexican an i am downloading it right now
Good game but why only for USA, they are trying to win more public there or they just dont want to share it outside USA?Doesnt make a lot of sense really, NanaOn-Sha is a Japanese company so...
@slayerSS-3 I think it is probably an export restriction or some agreement with the developer not to spread it to the four winds.
Haunt is actually a decent game. People will always hate on the Kinect, even when they don't own one. In any case, you have to have your Kinect plugged in to get the update that provides the FREE game. If you don't have a Kinect, you can't get the free game. As soon as I plugged in my Kinect, the update popped up. Haunt is over 700MB in side. Thanks M$.
WTF?! I don't care about the Xbox, I just can't believe the Parappa team is working for the Xbox! I guess Parappa 3 really is a dream...
Its free just create an US acount and its free to every one
With US account its free and i m Portuguese
A free Kinect game or a sock in the fuc*ing face? It's the same damn thing. Some different delivery systems for the same punishment.
i actually think this game is fun. downloaded it today, played a little until first save and enjoyed it.
Well, free offers aren't that common, I guess. News of sales on better games would be more helpful to me though.
@Heil68 If you did, it wouldn't be a "free" game. lol
I got free games on PSN+. :D
@xhawk27 Thats not free... you paid for plus Snumbnutz
Yeah, but you pay for PSN+ so.... If you cancel PSN+ that free game doesn't work.
@Llama345 If you play for PSN+ how is it exactly free? It's part a bundle. Let it expire and see how long you have those free games.
@xhawk27 yea fun games. that shit in the bomb
@Tikeio Well I gave up Gold last year :P
@Dragon_Nexus Or Brazil.
Basically Microsoft is says "fuck the rest of the world, if you're not in USA you're a savage and an animal". And i don't know how they got that crap of Windows sell so damn well. I used to defend Xbox but to hell with it! PS3 all the way...
@Raxyman Really? You'll sell your console and buy another one simply because you don't get a $10 freebee?
Smells like a troll to me.
@Raxyman I like the PSN+ system. It's like renting games forever for way more than you'd ever be willing to pay for them.
@Dragon_Nexus I already owned a PS3 idiot! Because of the heaps of exclusives that the PS3 had i always wanted to have both Xbox and PS, and now that i do, i can see that PS3 is better. Learn to interpret what people are saying
And it's not just because i don't get the freebie, it's a matter of principles. I have a Kinect too, and even though i still think it's an awesome hardware, man how do i regret having bought it... As if weren't enough having only Rise of Nighmares as a good game, the voice command doesn't work if you're not in the USA, even though i clearly know how to speak.
Besides, you need Live Gold just to PLAY online, PS does that for free, with a monthly subscription for PS+ you get awfully a lot of stuff. Ratchet and Clank All 4 One, Lara Croft and the Guardian of the Light, Hard Corps Uprising, Virtua Fighter 5, Infamous 2, LBP2 and some more indie titles were all for free in a sigle month of plus.
@y3ivan Read above, yes, you need to be plus, still, compared to a indie kinect game the Sony pack is better, you don't have any privilege by being Gold so...
@Dragon_Nexus and yet ps3 owners didnt receive any free stuff since the Sony security fukup
For those of you who don't like Kinect, simply don't download the game. It's about the most simple thing that you can (not) do.
For the rest of us that do enjoy our Kinect, we'll be happily playing our free game thanks to Microsoft!
Microsoft and free don't go in the same sentence. I don't even have a kinect so this is useless to me.
Your post was 100% useless.
1) "Microsoft and free don't go in the same sentence".
--That statement completely contradicts the truth, because it's in response to an article about Microsoft giving away a free game.
2) "I don't even have a kinect so this is useless to me."
--Well, here we having a winning statement! (heavy on the sarcasm, just in case you don't get that). Sony giving away free PS3 games is useless to me, because I don't have a PS3. But, then again I don't go posting on every "free PS3 game" article and complain about it.
Did anyone actually care? Might as well give away free candles or matchbooks, those might actually get used.
It's U.S. only, and you can't get it for free unless you have Kinect and you plug it into your Xbox to search...
@SolidTy wow i jusy put my kinect back in the box a couple of weeks ago.
