Rumour: Some games playable online using XBL Silver
Written Monday, July 28, 2008 By Joe Robinson
Following scattered reports across several forums, including x360a, it is now being hinted that some games are now playable for free over Xbox Live.
Microsoft has recently stopped their paid subscription service for all Games for Windows Live features, which includes cross platform online play. Because of this, cross-platform titles Lost Planet: Colonies, Shadowrun, and Universe at War have now been reported to have free online play on the 360.
Whether this is deliberate or simply a knock-on effect is unclear at this point, as Microsoft has yet to comment. This is also being treated as a rumour for the time being, as it is only 3 titles, and there was an Xbox Live weekend just recently that made every game playable for free.
Stay tuned for more updates.
