So thinking about it, the free game is to get people used to digital games.

No. People are already use to digital. Not everyone is okay with a pure digital download future, but they're still use to digital by now.

It's just a ploy to gain favor with their fans, who may or may not be disgruntled, and to also make some money through DLC sales. They'll probably just give away games with a lot of DLC that aren't selling a lot On Demand. They figure people will probably invest in the DLC since they didn't have to purchase the base game itself.

The best way to do that would be to give everybody a free Kinect.

If you say so. But I'm still betting on DLC-centric games to be the freebies and I can't really think of a lot of Kinect games with much DLC, granted I don't play a lot of Kinect. But Fable 3, Halo 3 and Assasin's Creed 2 have already been confirmed and each of those games feature a decent amount of DLC. So it seems to be the trend in which this is going so far.

Although "TheRob" (what a name) dose have 1 of the 2 reason they did it, I think it's more to get us to stay with Microsoft and buy the Xbox (EPIC FAIL) One, problem is there are a lot of things We don't like about it, biggest of all is Kinect is need for everything, can't even tern it on without using Kinect (IE, no F-ing power button)! But the problem with there choice so far is most of us have/had these games already on disk!
