Microsoft offers gamers a free “Thriller”

Regardless of your opinion of Michael Jackson, no one can deny that he was an outstanding musician who has made more recognizable songs than any artist in history.

Today, and today only, Microsoft is giving players the ability to reminisce about one of those famous songs.

According to Joystiq, Microsoft is giving players the chance to download Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” music video for free. An excellent gesture, and one that I definitely plan to take advantage of. Unfortunately, the deal seems to go for US residents only.

Personally though, I would like it much better if the video was made free permanently, or if other videos were released, such as Billie Jean, Scream or Smooth Criminal.
