Although I can’t really say that I found the Xbox live service to have been miserably broken over the Holidays, there have been a whole lot of other people who feel quite differently. (I guess when Halo 3 is your entire life, your priorities get a bit askew.)
Not content to rest on the public apology that was given by Marc Whitten (Xbox Live General Manager) on January 3, the following was posted earlier today:
“We’re pleased to announce that from 2:00 a.m. PST Wednesday, January 23, 2008 through 11:59 p.m. PST, Sunday, January 27, 2008 you can download the full version of the recent Xbox LIVE Arcade game, Undertow free of charge.”
That’s a really cool way to handle something like this, and it certainly helps to make one feel better about the cost involved with keeping the Xbox online.
And what if you’ve already purchased Undertow? According to Xbox Live Director of Programming, Major Nelson, the support team will take care of you.
