If they really want to make it up, they should allow a free xbox original download

Haha... I'm so glad I don't use Xbox Live.

My heart goes out to you guys who've been affected by this travesty. May you enjoy your "peace offering".

rarely i have problem xbox live and they have been great... well maybe it's because i don't play multiplayer that much or wasn't home during hoilday to play on live. but a free game is awesome.

How do you redeem your free arcade game? I went to the games that are already on my console and went to "Activate full version" and it asked me for MS points.... I think this offer is expired...

they name the game, you don't get to choose.

I don't know about many other's here, but I was/have been on live pretty consistently, playing cod4 with many other ppl. These outages have been hit or miss at best. I think it's awesome for them to give away an arcade game (granted it will only be a 400pt game) but still, according to their ToS, they didn't have to do ****.
