Microsoft launched the Xbox Live service back in 2002, and now after some increasing success they want to celebrate its fifth anniversary big. The company recently stated that all Xbox Live users will be able to download a board game called Carcassonne on November 15, except Korea gamers who instead will get Hexic 2. The games are expected to be available for 48 hours free of charge.

The software giant also has something in store for longtime users, they will deposit 500 points or $6.25 in the account of every Xbox Live user who joined the service in 2002. It was also reported that Xbox original games like Halo, Fable, Psychonauts, and Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge are to become available for download on the Live Marketplace for 1,200 Microsoft points or $15 starting December 4.
