    Guess what, EA is now celebrating 12th annivary of Command & Conquer and now, they are hosting free downloads for Command and Conquer!!!

    From EA or Makers of it:

    Thanks largely to the efforts of our loyal fans whom continue to sustain and grow the Command & Conquer community, Command & Conquer has become a legendary franchise and it’s time to celebrate its birth once again.

    In order to give back to the fans for over 12 years of devotion we are putting together a 12th Anniversary celebration during the month of September. However, as any Command & Conquer fan knows, the true party starts today, August 31st, which marks 12 years since the original Command & Conquer launched way back in 1995.

    To kick the celebration off, today we have a special surprise which we are certain new and old Command & Conquer fans will enjoy. We are providing the original Command & Conquer as a free download, compatible for Windows XP! This is the same version included with the collectors pack Command & Conquer: The First Decade, and is now available for you to download for free!

    Thanks for the info.

    Just as a fact, C&C was created by Westwood Studios before being bought by EA in 1998

    Don't worry, I'm sure your not breaking any rules. That link is legally being provided by those that own it's copyright. Looking forward to playing it. Download is taking forever.

    Thanks

    On a side note, you can use Imgburn instead of Nero to burn the ISOs. Its free too.

    Playstation? jalaneme, I think you are mistaken, C&C was never released for the PSX, Red Alert Was (C&C was released for the N64 as an absurd 3D monstrosity.)
    Please, make sense before I slap you.
    j/k, I would never touch a lady.

    In any case, this version roooooooocks because it works on WinXP, not sure about Vista.
