What's with the random link at the end?

I posted the forum thread. I was going to post as a deal since no one checks forum posts but it always ends up getting moved to forums anyway. I'm fine with it being posted as a deal. Much more exposure.
The next free game from January 16-31 is Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
but it always ends up getting moved to forums anyway.

Would be good if some example is provided sui we can revise the guidelines for moderation. Gaming forum is for topical discussions. Free Software/Website forum is for posting apps / games that have always been free.
If you check back far enough you'll find evidence Scotty. Its been this way for a long time now so you may need to go back a lot more than three pages. Its your site, doesn't bother me how you deem fit to moderate it, just makes it difficult to keep up when policy changes without any indication.
There are only 2 a month, a couple have been forum posts, though most have been deal posts like the below:
Any other month you'd have most guys agreeing with you; but since lots of them now surprisingly have exactly one month's Xbox live gold membership (go figure), they'll be calling this a "deal" for the short term at least!
Easiest way around here, don't bother pointing stuff out coz OzB'ers in general can be pretty damn fickle, just leech the bargains. ;)
They stay on deals like costco
Selected Sleeping Dogs DLC also half-price:
The Dragon Master Pack
The Year of the Snake
Nightmare In North Point Pack
As well as Hitman: Blood Money and Just Cause 2 being 50% off.
awesome thanks for the post, I have been wanting this on xbox for a while now
is it expired ??
i redeemed xbox live coupon to get 12 months xbox live gold subscription.
after signing in and clicking the link above its still showing as $29.95 ???
Did you pay with your credit card or you had one of those XBL cards from retailers?? If XBL card then it wont work. I talk to Xbox Support and to get those free games you have to pay for XBL with your credit card instead of purchasing an XBL card
I recently used a 1 month Xbox Live Gold card that was inside my new Xbox (as part of the $79 cashback deal), and was able to get Sleeping Dogs for free. Not sure if this is what you're referring to with 'XBLA cards'.
Worked fine for me with xbl card just purchased from ozgameshop
It worked fine for me via the link. It's maybe not detecting that you're a gold member?
yeah i paid with xbl card i bought off the ozgameshop deal couple of days ago.
edit: after i logged out and back in. the first thing i got is to select a membership option but i have already joined.
i think xbl gold subscription have not yet been updated for my account since i joined few minutes ago.
Great found.Just downloaded.Thank you and happy new year.
Expired? Comes up as $30
OP thanks for posting it here as generally most of us wont be looking in the forums.
i got it finally after adding credit card to account.
those having prepaid xbox live gold account and having trouble.
this direct link to that page might work too — > http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-AU/Product/Sleeping-Dogs/66ac...
Comes up as $30 but I followed through as it I was buying it and it says its FREE
I use paypal by the way, I don't want MS billing me for the XBOX live renewal as you can get it for Half what they want.
PS thanks for POSTING I always forget to check what the new free game is LOL
Why not both? :)
Can't afford both lol
If you don't want to add your credit card or paypal details just get it on your Xbox. Search the game manually on the console and it will come up as free.
Do we have to download it completely for it to stay free?
No once "purchased" for $0, it can be downloaded later from your DL history
PS, I'm not a store rep, but it wouldn't let me post without checking the box to say I was
But it keeps letting me 'buy' again and again, each time restarting the download.
Yep got it for free,
Cheers for the post despite the on going controversy, I would never have seen this in the forums and thought the games with gold promotion ended in December.
Finally another decent title that I didn't already own!
Check out Major Nelson's blog for Xbox Live deals and news:
My 2nd favourite game all of time, this game is amazing.
How to fit this on the Xbox 4gb, cause its an 6gp download. Can I just plug an appropriatly sized flash drive and d/l and go ahead. Or do I need to purchase a HDD right away-waiting for a good deal on one.
Plug in the flash drive (at least 7GB for this download probably) and go to Storage, press Y and format the flash drive. At the end it should tell you if the flash drive meets the requirements to play games on it.
You could use a Flash drive now. And when you get a HDD, you can move it from the Flash drive to the HDD from the Storage menu on your Xbox.
You don't even have to download it now, just "buy" it now to tie it to your xbox account and download at your leisure.
FYI JB Hifi has 320GB HDD for $69.
FYI that was only for the boxing day sales.
Nice. I was about to buy this. Thanks OP!
Can the game be added to my account if I sign in to my XBL acc on a PC or does the process need to be done on a 360?
Yep, thats how I do it. Much easier.
Thanks. So it's like Google Play (add now, dl/play later).
Thanks. Would have completely missed this one.
To add, on the Dashboard under 'games with gold' there are also other reduced games. Just Cause 2 for $9.97, Hitman Blood Money for $14.97 and Tomb Raider is $33.46, all gold exclusive.
Whats the cheapest way to get this as my gold has expired? I have a 14 day trial and 48 hour trial assume I can't use these? Would the cheapest way be to buy 1 month for $11 with credit card?
