I didn't realize my Gold had already expired and downloaded it.  Hopefully they won't charge my credit card as I see a "Pending Transaction" from Microsoft when I log into my credit card account.

 

I will let CAGers know if I see an actual transaction posted in the next day or two as I know a lot of times these go away.

 

Though I also had credit on my account still and that wasn't deducted so I'm guessing this is legit.  Maybe some sort of mix-up with the new program changes coming.

They'll nail you for "Xbox Marketplace Theft". I got banned, and that's when my Xbox got unplugged.

Even as free, its asking for a credit card. 

 

I stopped there, dont want M$ to have my info, so cannot confirm if it works or not.

Ditto.

 

Ever since they updated the security protocol for XBL accounts, it's been nothing but a hassle dealing with them. Thanks OP, but there's no reason for them to require a credit card for FREE items.

Thousands of people are going to jump on it, even by accident, so I doubt it'll be that bad. Did ask for my CC info too, which was already on-file, but no pending transactions.

Nothing theft about it when it's clearly showing up for free

I don't know, I would still be cautious about this. MS is not the type to give up things for "free"

Have you tried it on a console? Browser requires a payment option, but console doesn't.

Website always required a credit card, even on legit free things like demos. This is nothing new for the past year

I took a stab at it. I let gold expire. If they try anything I'll send them a screen cap of free.

Don't they usually honor stuff that accidentally gets put up for free? I'm vaguely remembering that guardian of light was free for a bit awhile back before they started games with gold.

Ben 10 The Rise of Hex was also free, I picked it up and nothing happened

Relax with the paranoia. They've only banned for this sort of thing once and it involved doing some shady shit anyways that we all knew we weren't supposed to be doing (making fake foreign accounts, adjusting our console's locale, etc).

 

This is just a price mistake, which they've never punished for in the past (see: Ben 10: Rise of Hex).

 

Everyone should feel free to get in on this, there won't be any repercussions, but if you're paranoid, do it on console with no payment method attached.

 

Even MS isn't crazy enough to do something stupid like mass bannings a week before E3.

Tried to grab it through a spare silver account because apparently I can't pass up a deal (already have it on my gold account) but I don't have a credit card attached to that account and too much work for something I already own...)

actually yes the strider free is totally different then this situation and was a bit shady especially since it was before the game was even released. http://www.cheapassg...ee-on-xbox-one/

You had to take extra steps to force the free game in that situation with this one you don't it right on the marketplace page in plain sight no extra steps required. not even close to the same situation.

Payment can't be processed at this time, probably a good thing for me, rather not get the ban hammer.

When did people get Strider free?

Strider showed up free on Xbox One if you checked someone that had it in their Recent Activity.  This was before the game's official release, too.

 

It was posted on here, then spread to other sites.  Lots of people talked about "oh don't do it, you'll get banned", but not a single person got banned for it, and it's just fear-mongering, just like always.

 

I wish we could ban those people from the forums.  They have no basis for what action, if any, that Microsoft would do, and just want to spread misinformation.
