Rumor: MS to make up for Xbox Live outage
According to the folks over at The Bitbag, they were told by their "Microsoft contact" that Microsoft is planning on making right to Xbox Live Gold subscribers (not Silver, they don't pay anyway) who had to put up with an unruly Xbox Live last week. What type of compensation or when it would be coming wasn't detailed, but we have a few ideas of our own. How about a "I Survived the Xbox Live Outage of Holiday 2007" gamer picture download. Or maybe something less creative like free Microsoft points, a free movie rental or Arcade game. Whatever is planned or isn't planned we're crossing our fingers simply for Xbox Live to stay alive. That would be the best compensation of all, a stable service for 2008.
