Michael Jackson’s Thriller video free for today on Live [Update]

Microsoft has announced that Michael Jackson’s legendary music video Thriller is free to download on Xbox Live until the end of today.

The information comes via Microsoft Xbox’s twitter page that reads: “Michael Jackson’s – Thriller music video is currently FREE on Xbox Live Marketplace, until the end of today.”

Sadly, this offer appears to be limited to US consoles only and strangely enough, if you access the song via Marketplace on your console (we’ve got a US account), it says the video currently costs 160 Microsoft Points. However, Xbox.com has it listed for free, so we suggest you use that instead.

It’s a standard definition only affair and therefore is a tiny 173Mb in size.

Update: Whoops: “EDIT- Michael Jackson’s Thriller video was FREE for a short period to only ‘US’ region Live Members. Apologize about the inconvenience.”
