You can just redeem the code on your browser on the computer and then just go to download history on the Xbox to download it. Picture related. Unless you mean you can't play it of course, then that's a whole other ballgame.


That would work if they aren't region blocking it - I couldn't get the Gears 3 demo with a code through this method because they blocked japan IPs... you might be able to start a region blocked item with a browser code claim, but it will ultimately fail to download (probably around 98~99%). You _can_ proxy your xbox on the last 2% of the download to a supported region, but it's probably not worth the effort. :/

Alas, you are correct. You can download it fully, but when you try booting up the game it tells you the disc region is incorrect and won't let you play. My bad.

Seems like your history is checked for GD:RB. Has anyone who hasn't played that game been able to download this? I'd love to find a work-around.

We as a community feel that it would be best if you didn't trade on here anymore. Despite your 350 positive transactions, I'm deactivating your account on 99Gamers because you offend me. I'm unrelatable, give poor customer service, and am now taking away your invested time and money because I don't like you.

Best,

Would this then entitle Silver Users to get in on the Triple Play 300MSP reward? Providing they just pay 800MSP for something (as they cant play online multiplayer) Youtube becomes free too, so the 1 hour is possible.

Probably not. Doesn't the promotion state it's for Gold? Too lazy to look.

I checked the rules and didn't see any requirement that you need Xbox Live Gold.

In order to perform some of these tasks you did need Gold. Since the entertainment apps will be open to all users this weekend it should allow everyone (in the US) to participate in this offer.

I'll have to agree, it seems Silver accts may be eligible. It's not a VIP offer for Gold only members and once a Silver acct has access to the apps then they can meet each requirement; Silver accts are eligible to 'Particitpate in Exclusive Promotions' (their words). If I were only a Silver member and didn't receive reward points for this promotion then I would email them and complain.

Yeah, Vudu is a pay per movie/tv show type service, but I in order to view movies you need Gold.

http://supports.vudu...on my XBOX 360?

Please note that in order to view movies on the VUDU service, an XBOX Live Gold membership is required. XBOX Live Silver members can enjoy trailers, but a Gold membership is required to rent or purchase movies on VUDU.

Vudu does offer a free $4.99 credit for first time users.

Everyone can participate but the "Social" requirements to get the triple play requires you to be gold, since Twitter, Facebook and Video Kinect are exclusive to gold users (no gold trial membership)

Youtube is also an acceptable app, so 1hr of youtube would meet that requirement.

I don't know if its the same in the US as it is in the UK, but in the UK, videokinect, facebook and twitter are also included in the unlocked weekend so as far as I can tell the 'Triple play' should be do-able even from a silver account, I'll be giving it a try anywho.

Can someone please tell me how I get a free trial for Hulu Plus through Xbox WITHOUT putting in a credit card number.

I am not in the habit of giving out credit card information to services like this since you never know what will happen.

Also, a free trial is not free if you have to give your credit card so they can automatically charge you after a week and make you jump through hoops to cancel.

There are almost no services like Hulu, Netflix, etc., that aren't going to require a credit card at sign up. It's very easy to cancel with Hulu (they tell you what day you will be billed and you just have to cancel before then) and if you miss it and cancel on the first day they pro-rate what you have left as a refund (I found this out when I did actually purchase Hulu Plus for a month and then cancelled it a couple days early just to make sure I didn't forget and they refunded me a couple of bucks for really just a couple of days.)

Hulu Plus normally only offers 1 week for free, but if you sign-up via certain links you can get 1-month for free.

Use this link for 1-month free: https://secure.hulu.com/plus/xboxlive

It's a pay service, so just like other free trials offers (Netflix, Gamefly, etc.) it requires a credit card to sign-up. It's very easy to cancel on their website. Set yourself a reminder to cancel a day before it renews and you won't have to worry about being charged.

I guess it was only free yesterday.

Today the free show is Hey Arnold! Season 2 - False Alarm/World Records.

In the Zune Marketplace there is an ad that says free episode every day for "The 90's Are All That". Looks like there will be new Nickelodeon shows each day and will be free for one day only.

If you miss this one, check back tomorrow and I'll post the next free episode.

I believe this is the game that is free for the base-game, but mad-expensive for the class you choose to play as.

It's always been free. It's technically a demo until you buy a class pack.
