That’s right expired. Yaris was a free brand supported advergame “available for download in the U.S. and Canada for one full year” according to a Microsoft press release announcing the game. Yaris came out on October 7, 2007 and today is November 5, 2008. A year flew by and Yaris was past its expiration date.
