If you own the Disney Infinity Starter Pack for the Wii, you can now download the game for the Wii U exclusively through the console’s eShop, free of charge.

“Disney Infinity launched one year ago, and in that time the number of Wii U players has significantly expanded,” Vice President and General Manager of developer Avalanche Software John Blackburn said in a press release. “Given our commitment to compatibility for our players, we wanted existing Wii owners to be able to experience the Wii U version of the first game for free. With the upcoming launch of the 2.0 Edition of Disney Infinity we want all Nintendo players to experience the game’s Wii U functionality.”

Disney Infinity 2.0 will release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Wii U, and iOS on September 24. So almost everything you can play games on but the Wii. Offering Disney Infinity fans the game for free on Wii U seems like a good incentive to get them to buy Nintendo’s latest console, and then hopefully Disney Infinity 2.0 and its future Play Sets.

It’s also a good way for Disney Infinity to keep up with its main competitor in the toys-to-life category, Skylanders. In late July, publisher Activision announced a similar deal which gave owners of Skylanders Trap Team for Wii a free upgrade to the Wii U version.

It’s a good time to be in the market for the PC version of Respawn Entertainment’s multiplayer shooter Titanfall. Not only has the game returned to EA’s “Game Time” promotion on Origin–allowing you to play it for free for two days–but it’s also marked down to $ 20.

EA launched the Game Time promotion back in June with Titanfall, and the publisher says the game has returned due to “popular demand.” Anyone with an Origin account can play the game for a period of 48 hours, which begins immediately after you launch the game and continues whether you’re playing it or not.

When the 48 hours is up, you can buy the game for 50% off its normal price of $ 40. In addition, all of the game’s DLC is on sale. And everything you accomplished during free play will carry forward to the full game. While EA has not announced when the Game Time offer for Titanfall will expire, the 50 percent off deal and DLC savings will come to an end on the evening of Sunday, August 24.

Other EA PC titles available for Game Time right now include Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (72 hours) and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (48 hours).
