So, Pepsi is running a promotion right now where you buy a bottle of Pepsi and get a code to enter into a contest to win Rock Band related prizes or get a downloadable track for free. Now with the PS3 and 360 versions, it generates a code that you can use to download a track that you choose, however with the Wii version it spits out a code redeemable for 200 Nintendo points, regardless of which song you choose. These 200 points don't have to be used on Rock Band tracks, so you can use them to get Virtual Console, WiiWare, or DSiWare games! Let Current.com user PacoDG tell you how to do it:

Granted you're not saving a ton of money since the cost of a Pepsi is about $1.50, but hey, you still get a Pepsi out of the deal. I'm going to try this and go for Gradius Rebirth. What will you go for?

Posted under Microsoft, Xbox 360, Halo 3, free stuff

The Xbox 360 is not known for its first-party support, yet the undeniable, record-breaking sales of Halo 3 have pushed console sales to outsell both the PS3 and Wii for the months of September and October.  At $30 million in development costs, Microsoft Corporation found return profit, multiplied ten-fold in the first week alone.  Sales were more than a once-off phenomenon, as the game has managed to consistently sell more than all the console versions of the hit game, Guitar Hero III, every week since release.

Now, it seems they're giving it away, at least to the poor original Xbox owners who are still living in the last generation.  This promotion is more than a replacement for your scratched LE discs; this is the full deal.

Once again this is a promotion for original Xbox owners with an Xbox LIVE account.  To register, go to the registration page and follow the instructions outlined below.
Current paid Xbox LIVE members on the original Xbox console (not Xbox 360), here's how to get your Halo 3 game:

   1. Buy an Xbox 360 console between November 21 and December 21, 2007.
   2. Convert your current paid Xbox LIVE account to an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription.
   3. Register here between November 21 and December 21, 2007 with promotional code XBX7777, with your new console serial number, and a valid mailing address.
   4. Look for your copy of Halo 3 in your mailbox!
Additional step #5. Wait. the game should arrive by January 18, 2008.

NOTE: The registration page has been down frequently since details of this promotion have been introduced to the internet.  It took me a few visits to find a time that the site was up.  It has since gone down again.  Good luck!  Also, why did I even register!?  I didn't have a paying LIVE account for the original Xbox, nor do I have a Gold account.  Save yourself some time and read the promotion terms of use.
