Free game for 12 month UK Xbox Live account purchases, Reach and Fable 3 offered

Wondering if you should bite the bullet and lay down some cash for an Xbox Live account? Microsoft has an added incentive for you… in the UK at least.

Free account holders can pick up a 12-month account for £31.99 now, and have a free game sent to you. These aren’t any crappy old games, either; last year’s Halo: Reach and Fable 3 are both on the list, along with Kinectimals and Kinect Sports.

If you pick up an account then instructions will be sent to you on how to claim your free game, which should then arrive 8 – 10 weeks later.

Still, it’s free. If you complain, you’re a bad person.
