I've been spending quite a time ranting at Microsoft's terrible policies at Europe. Looks like the Redmond company really hate everyone who's not in UK or Netherlands.
I have mentioned that in Greece and several other countries, there isn't official Xbox Live at all so, we end up using UK or ireland accounts.
The latest shenanigan from Microsoft is that they IP locked 1 vs 100. In a kinda sneaky way too. A couple of days ago, I could play without problem and the game was descent enough for me to fill up my utterly empty evenings. Then, out of the blue, the service got updated and asked me to re-download the game.
Instead of a download, i got the following message: "this download can't continue. please try later"
HUH? WHAT HAPPENED ?
I dug in some 360 related forums and found out that they probably locked away IP's that they are not from UK and netherlands. Isn't it fun? They haven't made a statement about this yet. It still remains ananswered why all the Europe has been excluded in a Europe-designed service?
way to go Microsoft
