This week on Xbox Live a brand new Arcade game that is advertised as a ‘full game’ on the Spotlight channel that can be downloaded for free. This so called free game will eat up 321.8 MB of your hard drive for you to realise this download contains no gameplay and you cannot play the game until you pay for it.
This game is Pinball FX 2. This ‘free’ game is merely a launch pad for all the downloadable pinball tables associated with it. Quite clearly false advertising.
So maybe this particular game is not relevant to many of you, but if Microsoft can cleverly market this as being free when it isn’t to squeeze money out of you, what other games are they or will they do it with? Bad move Microsoft.
