MS asks Gold members to "hold tight" as Silver members hit the download button.
Microsoft has apologised this morning for releasing a demo of upcoming rolling collect-em-up Beautiful Katamari that's only accessible by Xbox LIVE Silver members
Looks like someone hit the wrong switch. I thought it was the Silver members who had to wait a week, not the Gold members. Oh man . . . this is too funny. I'm sure they'll sort it out soon . . . but in the meantime, this is really funny.
Leave it to Microsoft Corporation to issue out an apology for doing something noble. Just like a true tyrant, Microsoft issues out something that can be done on Playstation® Network and give all consumers a chance to demo a game and then strip it away from the gamer. This is like Robin Hood taking away from the rich, giving to the poor and then taking it back from the poor and giving it to the rich again.
Would you like it if your game is downloading at 94% complete and then your online network that you worship decisively takes it away from you? This is destruction, this is pain, this is oppression, this is dictatorship, this is totalitarianism, THIS IS MICROSOFT.
Thankfully Dark Sniper has placed his trust in the superior online portal titled Playstation® Network. Which is the undeniable future which all other competing online services will follow.
You waste no time, do you?
No big deal
duffman, just give it up!
Ironic =) I think part of the idea might be to save load from the servers. It's a lame excuse though as demos should be available for everyone at the same time. Some more free stuff would'nt hurt as well. Packs for older games etc.
I wonder how hard it is to just change its availability from Silver to Gold members.
dark sniper continues to prove himself the ultimate poo stabber
Woah, the whole concept of paying for something that could easily be made accessible to everyone is just wrong. And people are paying for it. PSN > * [/trolling]
play both and dont be a snob
that didn't happen in the US... that demo came out months ago.
Another free game for your inconvince.
How about an apology for the RROD M$?....AAAHAHHAHA
lol i wonder how they managed to do this. i mean u would think someone would have checked....but i guess not
this game is dumb anyway who cares. i know i dont
This demo is old (at least in the states). Plus, it wasn't that great anyway.
I think this was actually a gift in surprise from Microsoft. This game sucked really bad in my opinion so the less people that can access it the better.
Then again... maybe I just don't understand the point of the game. I'm just rolling over mail men and benches and stuff and then it tells me how large I got when I'm done. huh?
Why would Gold members have to wait? If Microsoft knows about the mistake shouldn't they fix it right then? Does it take hours to make a simple change?
This is one big problem with Xbox Live. They have people who ay and people who don't. Why not make it all free and just put stuff up for everyone? Why create classes online? Not that the yearly fee is that much but why not make it a part of the Xbox and not charge extra?
