All right, so we have more or less established the pattern that there is no such thing as a free lunch in this world. Well, if that is the case, are there anything else that will be free? Apparently so, as one will be able to enjoy free gaming on Xbox Live over this weekend on the Xbox 360, now how about that? This just goes to show that Microsoft does have a heart for the older generation hardware owners. It must be said, however, that Microsoft did hold regular free multiplayer weekends for Xbox Live Silver members as well in the past, so that they can be hopefully enticed to end up as subscribers, but over the passage of time, such weekends ended up as less frequent, being a real rarity these days.
In February earlier this year, we did bring you word on how Microsoft is mulling over whether they should pick up the company known as N-Trig or not. Well, now that we are in May, it looks like a deal has been done and dusted, a confirmation has trickled out from Microsoft concerning their N-Trig purchase. Just before we continue, it would be good to refresh one’s memory concerning what N-Trig does – this is the company that deals with advanced digital pen technology, basically high tech styluses.
