Halo Free At Last

Well, wouldn’t today be good day to be German. Apparently, the holiday Xbox package which includes JSRF and SegaGT has generated a substantial increase in sales in Germany - enough to convince Microsoft that by throwing in Halo on top of the deal, they’ll convince everyone who still hasn’t bought an Xbox to do so. So everyone who buys the Xbox holiday package between December 11 and December 31 will also receive a free copy of Halo too. Hans Stettmeier (Director of HED/Xbox and member of the executive staff of Microsoft GmbH) says: "We saw a marked increase in market share since the introduction of the two-game Sega bundle last week. To convince the last undecided gamers in the weeks that count, we are now adding Halo: Fight of the Future (German title), the best and best selling Xbox game, on top of it for free." Microsoft is really going out of their way to make sure that every person on this planet has an Xbox in their home. Giving away two excellent titles with each system, as well as a Controller-S, was a surprise move in itself, but to give away their still best-selling game on top of that is incredible. Microsoft has entered the console market and will not be going away without a fight, that’s for sure. Whether this deal will make its way to our shores is unknown, but don’t count on it. Maybe if we wait long enough Microsoft will throw in Steel Battalion as well...
