Microsoft has kicked off a promotion that gives Xbox Live Free users 5 free games when they sign up for Xbox Live Gold. The promotion is available via the dashboard and gives copies of Halo: Reach, Fable III, Kinect Sports, Toy Soldiers and The Gunstringer to those who upgrade their account.
Seeing as these games would cost way more if you chose to download them individually, now seems like as good a time as ever to go for the account upgrade. Microsoft stated that the codes for the games would be sent out within 4-6 weeks of signing up. The promotion does not apply to current Gold members and will end on April 3.
