This is an official letter from the GM of Xbox Live that addresses some of the issues occuring on Live. Check it out and see what you think.
Props to Microsoft.
1. You must have already downloaded over 20 xbox live games. 2. You must own halo 2.5 and gears of war and have played both of them online for atleast 100 hours. 3. The game must cost under 800 microsoft points. These are official, because you know them cheap [email protected] at M$ want your money. The offer begins febuary 1st for gold members and one week later for silver members. You will have until the third monday in febuary to collect your free game, otherwise your out of luck. Yeah they said everyone, but they only really care about the gold members, so cough up the 50 bucks if you want microsoft to care about you. Also when they said around the clock, they didnt tell you that they were sleep on the job half the time, because you know M$ always half-a$$'s everything.
... and since when were Silver members capable of playing online?
Don't you have anything better to do than troll topics?
are you always this pissed off at faceless corporations with whom you have no association with? waste of time
This is a DUP story. Some started Xmas shopping before ThanksGiving and people these day do shopping after Xmas(deals, late paydays or things out of stock). People unwraped their gifts a few days ago and WAM!!!! 3 to 5 million people all at once in only a few days. lol Good Job MSFT. Honestly I think they did better than they thought they would.
with the holiday time, it was expected to have some trouble; personally i didnt have much trouble connecting, so they did a good job in my eyes; but i also have to consider that Sony was in a similar situation with their free PSN, and they had no problems with whatever influx they got. MS needs to step it up some
Talk about self contridiction.....
you obviously didn't learn vocab in school now did u? Success=completion of a goal and or wanted end result. They had more members sign up then ever before...thats a success...damn sony fanboy. Edit: i wish i had 3 accounts to disagree with people but i actually have a life and only have 1 account.
Yes but the service is broken. That means they do not have success of any record.
One bubble left for every disagree... woops now you have 4 disagrees... Well at least MS is talking to its customers, even if its a load of ... Sony isn`t exactly great on community relations.
I`m still having problems logging into multiplayer with many games, especially with PGR4. COD4 seems to work but is very bad, loads of laggs. And i also noticed that voice quality has droped significantly, is much harder to understand eachother. There is alot of things that i`ve come to hate about the 360. There`s always some sort of problems. And i already spent nearly £900 and that is brittish pounds not dollars, as i`ve been through 3 consoles already. I`m not 100% happy with my PS3 due to games library, but there`s nothing that i trully hate about either, like i hate the 360. Call me a troll if you want, but i consider myself as a very angry consumer.
your a liar you purchased 3 360 consoles? lol u do know they offer that free new fangled warrenty in the UK right? as for that many people had no problem with xbox live, and its working fine now.
Really now, do they? Well i bought my first 360 off ebay in jan 2006, paid £450 for it. By may 2006 it was brocken already, and than nobody new about RROD. Bought the 2nd from ebay again cos i could`t find any in the shops, which broke down this summer. Than i wanted to give up and get a ps3 but there was simply no games out there to play, so i bought another 360 for £180 which is now scratchin the hell out of my discs.
@2cents: why would u go through three consoles? thats insane, the xcrap console isnt even worth buying the first one! ohh and led zeppelin, do you have anything better to do than troll topics just to say "Don't you have anything better to do than troll topics?"... honestly make some damn sense before you say something like that, when ur doing the same damn thing. DUH! just goes to show how dumb xcrap owners are. i myself just like watching you guys try and protect your crappy console, when its not worth doing so. by this rate id say the ultimate failure console will be out soon... wait its already out, its called the xbox 360. M$ has no need to make a more ultimate failing console, which includes the ultimate failing online service for just 50 more dollars... yipee! (theres your sign, now go ahead and throw that piece of junk out your window.)
what they edited out pf the apology: "but we will never fix RRoD no matter how much you plead MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHA oh yeah and my most anticipated game of 2008- mgs4, wait a second its NOT coming to 360 ever? get me gates on the phone dammit"
