XBLA title Undertow free following Live problems

After previously saying that it would seek to compensate members after many experienced Xbox Live troubles over the Christmas period, Microsoft has confirmed that it is to offer recently released shooter Undertow free next week.

Major Nelson spills the beans on his blog, linking to fellow Microsoft blog Gamerscore, which states:

We recently announced that all Xbox Live members (Gold and Silver) around the world would have access to a full Xbox Live Arcade game to download free of charge.

We’re pleased to announce that beginning next Wednesday through to Sunday, Xbox Live members worldwide can download the full version of the recent award-winning Xbox Live Arcade game, Undertow.”

The most obvious reaction to expect is complaints from those who have already downloaded the game. There’s no further word on Microsoft on whether there will be a further offering to appease such gamers.
