PostSubject: I HATE M$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I HATE M$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EmptySun Apr 11, 2010 6:22 am

Don't get me wrong, I love XBox 360 but Microsoft are money grabbing bastards.
Really.
In January I had signed up for a month of xbox live through the xbox 360. After the month was over... I still had gold. I kinda knew it was still charging me (I used my mum's card lol so I wasn't really bothered that it was taking money every month).
Only recently my mum found out and so she told me to cancel it. Well I was searching around on the xbox 360 dashboard for ages to find a way to cancel the damn thing but all to no avail.....
Kind of ridiculous that you can spend unlimited amounts of money on stuff on Xbox 360 yet can't even perform the simplest cancellation.
So then I went on the Xbox website and a forum post said that to cancel you just need to go to your profile and for xbox live gold, where it says "automatic renewal", click no.
guess what....
there is no link to click no. So basically, I'm left with no method of cancelling my xbox live subscription. I guess I could phone, I will do that but seriously...... how hard does it have to be!? Why should I have to jump through all these hoops?! XD

No, because they forced me to pay more than what I wanted without informing me and then didn't provide any way to stop it.
I selected month to month and it specifically said "£4.99" yet after that month was over it continued to take money.

It's alright now though, phoned 'em up and cancelled it.
From now on though I think I will just buy 3 month cards from shops.

They didn't force you to buy anything. It's outlined in the terms of use that they will continue charging your credit card in order to maintain XBOX Live Gold. It's just no one reads the terms of use but they are perfectly allowed to continue charging your credit card because you agreed to it.

You should really buy a 12 month card, it's the best deal and you can even get it cheaper from Amazon.com I only paid $30 for 12 months of Gold.

Hmmm yeah that's true.
But it gives me an enormous decision;
Buy Bully: Scholarship Edition, my favourite game of all time but with more content and on an hd system ....or....12 months of gaming online.
Hmmmmmm.....

Yeah but it's ridiculous that it's the easiest thing ever to make transactions on XBL yet impossible to cancel them on XBL. They've also purposefully taken the ability to cancel online so that you decide you can't be bothered to start calling them up to cancel and just let them drain your credit card month after month.
Sigh...

though the service is usually top notch so MS are alright I guess.

Well if I were you I'd make the choice and if I went for the game I wouldn't play online. But if I decided that since I'd already played the game Xbox Live was the way to go I'd buy a 12 month card.

If you're paying $8 a month that adds up to $96 a year. So if you bought a $45 12 month card you'd be saving $51 which is nearly the cost of another game. That's only $3.75 a month and sometimes you can get it on sale for even cheaper. The way you're doing it is costing you way too much.

Yeah I see.. Hmm maybe I will go for xbox live. I got contacted on Youtube by this record label in california who are offering me $30 if I put some of their music on my most viewed video. If I do that, then I just need a bit more cash and can get XBL Gold for a year. That's probably the best option.

Yeah, I was about to use my credit card until I read the agreement and found out I can't cancel it. So I bought a 12 month card off Amazon for real cheap and will continue to do it that way.

Actually I poured I think approximately 150 hours into Bully on the PS2 and am still not bored of it.
I've completed it god-knows how many times and would complete it even more times and collect ALL THE ACHIEVEMENTS!! Razz
