Microsoft have decided to reward those who bought the Stimulus Package for Modern Warfare 2 by giving them a week of Xbox Live Gold free of charge.
Microsoft insist that this is not a form of reparations for the problems that occurred on the first day of downloading it. Those that did found they couldn’t use the pack for most of the first day. They said it’s all about giving something back to their users.
“To thank you for your loyalty to Xbox LIVE and for buying the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus package on day 1, we will extend your Gold membership for 7 more days of adrenaline-pumping action with your friends on LIVE” reads the onscreen message.
Accounts can be expected to have their updated status by the 1st May.
