Games With Gold Reminder: Halo 3
Posted by Anthony Bacchus
Promotion only until the end of October
Right on schedule, the second freebie of the month for those with an Xbox Live Gold membership is Halo 3. It will be available digitally from now up until the end of the month, otherwise it will bounce back to the cost of $14.99.
Remember that you don't actually need to download the entire 5.72GB game right away. It's much easier to redeem from the Xbox Games Store, then simply cancel the download afterwards. That way, it will be in your download queue for safe keeping for that rainy day when you'll want to revisit Master Chief's victory over the Covenant.
When Microsoft announced their Games with Gold initiative at E3 this year, Halo 3 was the first game announced that was promised. Weirdly enough, Microsoft chose to offer Defense Grid instead to kick off the program. Oh well, better late than never, right?
