Just a heads up for people who have the kinect and don't have haunt. It seems its available for free. Not bad for a game that was 800 msp.


Edit. Sorry guys, I didn't know it was US only.

Got to have your Kinect connected to your console for it to show on the Home tab on the dashboard, US only I may add.

Cool. I'm glad somebody mentioned it or I would've missed it since my Kinect has been unhooked for a while. Can't play it now, but it'll be nice to have something for my kinect whenever i have the room to use it again.

Hopefully they might make it free in UK at some point.

Why not just make a silver account for US, download it for free and play it with your UK acc :)?

Just make a US account, comes in handy sometimes and some of the free goodies they have never even came to the UK dash! :) I think this will remain a US only freebie IMO.

I purchased this when it was on deal a few weeks ago for 400MSP. Figured it wouldn't get any cheaper than that, but man was I wrong.

Pretty annoying as I already have a spare US tag so could of grabbed it easily. :(

What's all this about getting a US GT?? How does that work? Can you then play the US games using your UK live account to get the gamerpoints? Very confused now. :s

You can create an account from most regions in the world and download freebies from that region, some are locked to that specific region but most of the stuff isn't so you are able to use it on your actual account.

That thread will tell you all the details, you can also use the information on that to create your free US account and download this free game before the deal ends.

Yeah, create a US tag and you can use it to download US exclusive games, demos etc.

Only thing that won't work is avatar items as they're tied to the tag that downloads them

Can I download this without Kinect? Where's the Kinect Central app?

It seems as though you do need to have your Kinect connected to your console, I tried it both ways and the app only appeared on the Home tab once I hooked it up. Also make sure it's on a US account ;)

Amazing, thank you. And Microsoft don't mind this? No chance of getting gamers cores reset and banned. That sort of thing??

Nope, it's nowhere in their T&C's and what not, so feel free to do it. I'm sure 90% of the people on this site (including myself) have got two or more accounts from various regions. :)

As long as you don't go cheating or modding your gamerscore/avatar you'll be fine!

Is there anything of note in Kinect Central this week? I assume not, but I don't have access to my Kinect atm to check personally.
