XBL celebrates anniversary by giving away games

Xbox FiveRemember when you were little and your parents threw you a birthday party with all your friends? Cool, right?

Microsoft’s taking this cue from childhood and is throwing a bash of their own for the fifth birthday of Xbox Live–except with a twist. Instead of you bringing presents to the gala event, Microsoft is kindly giving away gifts to every XBL member.

Between November 15 (12:01 AM PST) and 16 (11:59 PM PST), you will be able to download a free Xbox Live Arcade game. For those in Korea, you’ll be receiving Hexic 2; the rest of the world will get Carcassonne. And for you loyal followers of XBL since 2002? You’ll find yourself the owner of 500 ($6.25) free Microsoft Points.

Not sure what Carcassonne is? Check out Kyle’s review.
