Lucasarts posted around 6 links on Twitter that all led to a .txt page of codes which, when redeemed on Xbox Live, gave the gamer Starkiller’s Dual Lightsabers for their avatar.

Fans of Final Fantasy will be pleased to know (if they aren’t playing already) that Final Fantasy has hit Facebook with a couple of RPG‘s.

Square Enix has launched beta’s of Chocobo’s Crystal Tower and Knights of the Crystals which are both free to play… although, I don’t think anyone actually charges fees to play games on Facebook and if they do, well it’s a big rip off and undeserving of attention since all Facebook games should be free, if you’re paying to play something on there (other than being stupid enough to buy ‘credits’), stop and/or ask for your money back.
