Microsoft Puts Bold New Spin on Free

This week, Gabe Newell said that the company would have liked to give their L4D content pack away free on Xbox Live, but couldn't due to Microsoft's policies on downloadable content. That's why it was no surprise when Microsoft's new restaurant chain said it would be following similar policies.

"We at Microsoft are proud to announce our new line of Microsoft Panorama restaurants," said a representative from Microsoft. "We will bring you a unique dining experience that you can purchse as a complete package, or piece by piece. First, you will have your choice of water or bread, each costing a mere 100 MSP. Napkins and utensils are only an extra 50 MSP each. We have to pay the dishwashers you know, they don't work for free."

Similarly, the toilets at the restaurant cost 800 MSP, but come with a complimentary upgrade of one sheet of toilet paper. Who said Microsoft doesn't care?
