Get Undertow Free on XBox Live Until Sunday

Get Undertow free until Sunday. If you already have it, call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and you will supposedly receive 800 Microsoft points.
As an apology to customers who faced major online service problems after the holiday season, Microsoft said today that it would allow all Xbox 360 owners to download the game Undertow free of charge.

The game usually costs $10, but will be free to all Xbox owners with an Xbox Live account -- either the $50-per-year Gold accounts or free Silver accounts -- from Wednesday, January 23 to Sunday, January 27.

In a comment on Gamerscore Blog, Microsoft marketer John Porcaro wrote that those who had already paid for the game could call Xbox customer support, who he says is "prepared to take care of you." What that means exactly, I have no idea.

A nice gesture, but this probably won't do anything to keep the lawyers away. More at Wired...
