Is Microsoft going to lifetime ban thousands of accounts because they clicked on a 3rd party website link to get a free game or are they going to give out $10 store credit and an apology for having to revoke something that was free because of a mistake on their end?


No idea - but I know for sure that my account isn't going to be nuked. Your risk level may be lower than mine in this instance.

I have been on Xbox Live gold for years.  I have many games and purchases that I would hate to lose.  

 

Major Nelson also said that the DRM in the Xbox One cannot just be removed so easily but it was when the backlash occurred.  

 

I'm not even sure Major Nelson is a good authority for this, this is more a "legal' terms of use issue.

 

Regardless I got the game.  Its from the official Xbox Japan site and it's still under gold.  If anything, it will be removed from my account.

 

I honestly don't think that anyone will get banned for this, at least I hope not.

Sounds like you have your mind made up already but I just wanted to put it out there that I too have also invested a great deal of time and money into my Xbox account. I would NOT download something that I believed would even have the slightest chance of getting me banned, and I sure as hell would not make a video on it if others were at the same risk. Just wanted to get that out there!

I redeemed the game, but I'm not seeing it in my library. Wonder if they did something to fix this?

 

Edit: Scratch that. Might just be b/c I'm on the new dashboard, but under "Ready to Install" there was a "Show Lastest Items" thing that refreshed the library.

The paranoid folks gotta calm their tits.  Grow a pair of nuts and get the free game.  It's no big deal.  Play it, show your mom then go eat dinner.

Ya know....if you are using Google Chrome, you can just click the "Translate from Japanese to English" button underneath your URL line.

Got the game, but didn't like it. I couldn't get past the second stage of the tutorial. It wanted me to attack something, but none of the buttons did anything.

Uninstalled after hitting all controller buttons for about ten minutes, but it was free so no big deal.

 

Looking forward to seeing what the next game is though.

Next game in Japan Korea will be Powerstar Golf (I assume the full version) available from 9/16 - 10/15. Link: http://www.xbox.com/...games-with-gold

 

Knowing it's safe to get these games now makes me wish I had gotten LocoCycle and Kalimba when they were available. It is worth nothing though, that this is the second time Powerstar Golf has been available through foreign markets, so I assume they will repeat the others in the future, if not offer them to the US first.

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.
