Eurogamer is reporting that Microsoft has said an official word on the matter is on its way, and may arrive as soon as today. (January 3rd, 2008)
"We have billions and billions of dollars, so that means we could really care less about explaining anything to our customers, we reserve the right to deny any faults with both our consoles and systems, have a NICE day...and dont forget to JUMP IN"
Xbox Live free forever!
Hey BigKev, no offense, but people like you and your declaration for "Free XBOX LIVE" just sickens me. If you can't afford $50/yr then why do you own an XBox? I would pay for my PS3 service if they asked me to.
What's next, millions of those World of Warcraft players proclaiming "We need free WoW!!!"
exactly, as i know some people that play WoW its something like £8.99 and to those who are thinking yes i mean UK pounds, im not sure how much it is in the US or anywhere else so sorry.
it was proabably because, at this time of year there are so many people playing at once, proabably too many, and that's why there were so many problems with live.
i heard the same thing happened when halo 3 was released
We could wait for offical word...Why are we so quick to post this crap..It's not NEWS ..I guess it could fall under "Update" News coming soon on Live downtime...
Instead we have a news article that does NOTHING for the customers that were having problems and I am SURE once MS does release a statement N4G will have it posted....
This seems more to me like someone trying to get points or whatever crap contributers get for posting these articles....
NO NEWS HERE...
why dont they give something to the silver memeber too. i couldn't sigh in at all and i am a silver member. why is it only gold who get something for the service bieng down?
Why do some people believe they should get something for nothing?
Honestly right now its friggin ridiculous. Ive been on vacation and Ive tried to play COD 4 but have gotten nothing but headaches. Even up till now Im getting booted out of lobies, hosts ending games abruptly and connection issues. Ive been asking other players as well when I finally get in and they're having the same problems. If Live is free then I have no right to complain...instead Im paying $70 (cdn) for a service thats not working. Microsoft BETTER compensate us.
I'm a gold member and I did encounter some problems with XBL but I actually don't think that the Sliver accounts should get anything, I'm paying for the servers and bandwith that you guys use to download demos, XB1 games, arcade games etc.
Gold members should get maybe a discount on their XBL subscription or 2 months free. I just want MS to give us Gold members more stuff like deadicated servers or the ablity to set up our 360 as a deadicated server for online play. Give us our own servers for downloading movies, games etc and maybe give us a discount on marketplace items which could then make more people buy a gold membership.
