Free Game For Xbox LIVE Holiday Problems

Microsoft is going to offer Xbox LIVE users a free game from their Xbox LIVE Arcade to help rectify issues users had during the holidays.
It's official. Xbox LIVE general manager Marc Whitten said that the problems with Xbox LIVE downtime were caused by an influx of new users who had gotten an Xbox 360 over the holidays. It's been a record-setting season for Xbox LIVE.

"This included our largest sign-up of new members to Xbox LIVE in our 5 year history and just yesterday you broke the record for the single biggest day of concurrent members ever on the service," said Whitten.

Although the service was never completely offline, Whitten said that Microsoft was "disappointed" with Xbox LIVE's performance. He thanked users for their patience.

"At the same time we would like to offer a token of our appreciation to all of you in celebration of record success for the service," he said.

All Xbox LIVE users will get access to a full Xbox LIVE Arcade game that will be available for download free of charge.

Whitten stopped short of identifying the game, or when it would be available.

"In the coming weeks we will be sharing the specific details of this offer with you," said Whitten.
