Additionally if you are in the US or Canada you will be able to download a FREE Xbox LIVE game titled “Yaris”. Car fans will find this title name to be a little familiar, and you will be correct. Toyota will be bringing its little city car to Xbox LIVE with a FREE game.

“Yaris” is a quick, fast and easy-to-learn game that puts players behind the wheel of a customizable Toyota Yaris to destroy enemies, avoid obstacles, and finish the course before it finishes them. Players will enjoy customization options and an arsenal of weapons while they attack enemies and advance to the next level. “Yaris” features online multiplayer over Xbox LIVE, allowing gamers to challenge each other for the best time and score. Developed by Backbone Entertainment, “Yaris” is the first free brand-supported game on Xbox LIVE Arcade and is available for download in the U.S. and Canada for one full year.

Let us know if you will be picking any of these up this week or if you’ll be giving it a miss.
