    Since Games for Windows has become free for online play, games like Shadowrun are also free to play online now on Xbox Live. LINK

    Guess that's cool. I really liked Shadowrun myself, was a fun game definitely underappreciated. Hope a sequel comes out.

    Nice. Does this mean Gears of War is free to play online as well? It's a Games for Windows game.

    Interesting, I wonder if this was intentional or if it will be changed.  It's a great way to entice players to upgrade to Gold.

    I bought Shadowrun mistakenly thinking it was a finished, full game.  Yes, it was fun, but for $60 bucks all you were buying were tutorials, online play, and pretty boring bot matches.  And you still had to pay separate for the online play.

    Back to the main topic; awesome. :]

    That is great.  Does anyone know if there is an official list of what can be played on live with a silver account, that is, if this is true.

    This is great, though it will probably only apply to player matches?

    This free online play for Silver members should count towards all games that are also part of GFW...like Shadowrun, Universe at War and Lost Planet. So if it's on both then it should work...so Gears1 may work as well.

    I just tried Gears on my silver account and it doesn't work. I don't have any of the other games to try though, but I don't really care cause I'm rich enough to be able to afford gold.

    I can't say I really care, I'm always going to have gold unless I only ever play one game and I can play it free.

    I think after the failure of Shadowrun that Microsoft disbanded the team that made the game. Pretty sure I remember reading that so would not hold your breath for that sequel to come anytime soon.

    Ya I realize that, kind of sucks. With a bit of fine tuning, Shadowrun was my kind of game. Played a 3 day marathon of it was it.. last year it came out?

    It is... I think it's just a bug in games with a unified multiplayer (PC and 360) like Shadowrun
    correct me if I'm wrong though
