Thursday marks the 5th birthday of the service that changed console gaming as we know it: Xbox Live. As a birthday present to us, Microsoft will be launching a new service which allows users to download full classic games, like Halo and Psychonauts, to their consoles. These XBox Originals will run 1200 Microsoft Points (or $15).
In addition, for those of you who have been around since the beginning, Microsoft will be kicking you 500 free points to use as you choose.
Add to that, 360 owners can all download Carcassonne on Nov 15 and 16 for FREE. Plus, download the new update to the system, which will be adding all kinds of nifty new features, possibly even DivX support (we'll see).
