Are there any xbox live 2 month free trials anymore? I've bought 4 copies of Live games from Best Buy and 2 of them had expired 2 month cards and 2 of them didn't have anything at all. I've tried calling MS and they won't help me. They say they don't have codes to issue. I just want to try the service and see what's availible and what the prices are and I don't feel like paying $60 for the privilege.

All I've seen in the stores are the cards for the 360 and none for 1 month service which used to be 5.99, I think. They are all "Gold" service for 3 or 12 months.

Suposedly, Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes, Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, and Star Wars Battlefront II are supposed to have Live trial codes in them.

I just bought Battlefield and SW Battlefront and the codes were expired. I'm assuming any Kingdom games would have expired ones too since it came out in '05.
I just don't understand why MS still has this info on their site if they don't support it anymore.

Like I said, I'm not shelling our $60 for this and I was wondering if the 2 month trials even exist for the original xbox anymore.

can i please borrow a code for only 48- hours if thats all i can get????

you can't give it back, so you are asking for a code, not borrowing one.

I've tried 4 expired codes now from new games I've bought recently and none of them worked. They were hard to read, too, being all fuzzy from shelf life, I guess.

If anyone has an unexpired code, I'm willing to Paypal you. PM me, please.

All the cards that came with original Xbox games have been expired for a long time.

The one's that are not expired are cards that come with 360 games and those codes only work on the 360, not original Xbox.
